I just had to come back and share some outfits with you all, because too often our minds are closed in on what modest or appropriate wardrobes must look like.
I was a sad, sad victim of that myself.
Now, I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again. (and again, and again, and again…)
I am not Modest at heart, and I do not claim to be.
I try. I really do. And I aim for it daily. But its not who I am, or who I was raised as. (Thank you God for our Savior!)
But God tugged on me, my heart was a major conviction construction site, and because I have a daughter, I will never ever (don’t say never) dress the way I use to. I dont know His plan and why I have been given this new view on dressing, but I ain’t questioning the Big Guy upstairs. Im just being obedient.
“Trust in the Lord will all your heart and lean not on your own understanding. In all your ways acknowledge him, and he will make your paths straight”- Proverbs 3:5-6
Something I really enjoy about History are all the different time eras, and events that have taken place to form our current world. (Cipher’s second grade curriculum is focused on U.S History and I am loving it!)
Some of my favorite eras of fashion are the Victorian times and the 50′s. This time period makes a great reference for modest style, seriously! It’s even easy to find modern clothes online or at the store that are inspired from this time!
We live in A Victorian Seaport with a lot of vintage consignment stores, So while I took the kids to walk around downtown, we stopped in on a couple of them. I scored big time on some dresses for $6 a piece! I even found a Modest costume dress for Halloween. Say what?!
Notice the lengths, necklines and flowy cut to them?
So I encourage you to step out of the stereotype and find your own personal style! Not what some woman on the internet is wearing.
As for my weight loss-I haven’t reached goal weight yet, but I have lost over 30 pounds! 50 pounds total from the day I went into labor with Carbon.
