Beautifully Modest

Reading Time: 2 minutes

There’s something about dressing up formally that makes me feel almost like a princess. I embrace being a woman and I love all things girly. It wasn’t always that way and I’m glad my mother didn’t force me to give up my tomboyish ways! She let me discover my womanhood at my pace. But, she was there for me as I got older to answer questions and help me find my style.

It’s changed over all those years, but not the fact that I love to dress up, even wearing hats every Sunday to church.

When I was in my 20s, I spent hours on my makeup and wouldn’t be caught dead going a few feet to the mailbox without it! Today, I’m much more simpler. It’s not as important to spend so much time on my outside appearance.

Modesty dress doesn’t mean frumpy. I’m so glad there are designers that realize that. As a Christian woman, my first desire is to look my best to represent Christ on earth and He laid out specific guidelines for how we ought to dress. Following fashion trends doesn’t always lend itself to modesty for the most part so that’s what got me started looking all over Pinterest for modest styles. It led to my blog, “Styling Modest” which I ran for a few years, but now it’s one of my most popular Pinterest boards.

So, today, I picked out some of my favorite outfits from my board to share with you. And, if you want more ideas, please feel free to follow my board.

You can probably tell by my outfit choices above that I love neutrals! I use other colors like gold, red, blue and purple as accents in my accessory pieces. I love scarves, purses and especially hats! In fact, my hat collection has really grown and I’m up to over 60 LOL!

My motto is, and I hope yours too, to represent Christ in my outward appearance as well as inwardly and to work hard with excellence.

God calls us with a purpose in life and whatever we do: our jobs, ministry work, running a household, parenting, volunteer work we should perform our tasks with excellence.
