My sister tagged me in this so I have to do it… (That was a joke). Anyway, basically you have to have 11 random facts about yourself and answer 11 questions that the person who… More
I’m really, really sorry I haven’t posted in over three weeks. I have a very good excuse for why, something big happened in my family and I was either too tired or too busy to post. I’m going to try to post at least once a week from now on because I really do like blogging.
So thank you for reading and have a great day! ❤
As you can see from the title what I’m going to be talking about today are five myths about modesty. You’ve probably heard some of these but here they are (just in case).
1. Modest is Hottest
You’ve most likely heard of this since it’s been going around for forever. And let’s face it, it’s really not. I thought that being modest was about covering up so that phrase is really sending mixed messages.
There are of course the men who find a woman dressing modestly very attractive (don’t believe me? Check out this post). But most guys don’t find modest the hottest.
Also, last time I checked God did not tell us to be hot, He did not say for women to try to look hot, and He definitely didn’t say “dress modestly but call yourself hot”.
You should check out this post if you want to hear it in more depth and better said.
2. Modesty is Optional
I’ve heard many girls (who are professing Christians) say that modesty is optional. But the Bible clearly says for women to dress modestly. There are several verses in the Bible saying this and hear’s a couple:
1 Timothy 2:9 – In like manner also, that women adorn themselves in modest apparel, with shamefacedness and sobriety; not with broided hair, or gold, or pearls, or costly array;
Deuteronomy 22:5 – The woman shall not wear that which pertaineth unto a man, neither shall a man put on a woman’s garment: for all that do so [are] abomination unto the LORD thy God.
1 John 2:16 – For all that [is] in the world, the lust of the flesh, and the lust of the eyes, and the pride of life, is not of the Father, but is of the world. (Love that one!)
3. It Isn’t Our Fault That Guys Lust When We Are Dressed Immodestly
To a certain extinct this is true. But for the most part we should be helping them by dressing right. And we shouldn’t be encouraging them.
Matthew 5:28 – But I say unto you, That whosoever looketh on a woman to lust after her hath committed adultery with her already in his heart. (I mean seriously, let’s help a brother out!).
4. Modest Clothing Is Ugly
I want to laugh whenever I hear this! I’ll give you some examples of why this is sooo untrue.
I think the pictures speak for themselves but here are some awesome blogs that prove my point all the more!
5. Girls Who Dress Modestly Do So Because of Self-Image Issues
This is true for some girls but for for the most part we just do it to honor God and our bodies. Dressing modestly hides your physical beauty but reveals your inward beauty! Just remember that! 🙂
That’s it, thanks for reading!
This post should actually be called “crazy past few weeks”! 😛 But I felt that was too long. My family started school in late August (we can do that because we homeschool), just to get a bit of a head-start this year. So adjusting to the new schedule is partly why I haven’t posted in a while (sorry about that). And yeah, one of my sisters recently had a birthday. Things have generally been crazy these past few days.
Anyway, here’s the outfit I wore the other day.
I love this simple look. I have quite a few gray tops so I’m pretty much always wearing a gray tee and denim skirt these days 😀

Are you home-schooled? When did you start school?

Today I was going out and I wanted to wear something bright and different since I tend to stick to more neutral colors, so I decided to wear my new maxi skirt and a this turquoise top (I’m not exactly sure what color it is).
For me the easiest way to tie an outfit together is with jewelry so I put on a silver necklace, my silver studs, and since my sandals had bits of silver (you can’t really see it in the pictures) it was perfect!
Skirt- Sorry, no idea
Sandals- Payless Shoe Source
Thanks for reading! Do you wear brighter colors or do you (like me) tend to stick to neutrals? Comment!
Yesterday I caught up and the outfit I had originally picked out the night before wasn’t working, I tried on a couple outfits until I settled on this one. I’m glad I decided to wear this outfit because I can kill two birds with one stone by posting a Sunday Style and showing you the other maxi skirt I got.
I really like wearing maxi skirts on Sunday because they are super comfortable and really easy to dress up.
My dad gave me this necklace about a week ago and it’s my new favorite necklace!
This Sunday was really great, we had a family from Brazil visit and they told us that they had been listening to my dad’s messages online. So yeah, it was really cool to meet them!
Skirt- I honestly can’t remember the name of the store… 😦
Sweater- Thrift Store
Necklace- Gift from my dad
Earrings- Thrift Store
Shoes- Borrowed from my mom
Thanks for reading!
Sorry I haven’t done a Sunday Style post in a while, I don’t really have any excuse.
I was feeling pretty uninspired yesterday morning, but I feel like I was able to match my jewelry pretty good. I like this outfit but I think it would be a lot better with a belt. Unfortunately I don’t have any that would go with this particular outfit. A black belt would look nice with this but mine is falling apart. 😦
Shirt- Hudson Bay
Necklace- Thrift Store
Ring- Gift Shop

Sorry short post today. How was your Sunday?
Yesterday I was out at a mall with my family and I found a great sale on maxi skirts (10$ for one) so I bought a couple and here’s one.
This one is my favorite of the two, the other one is just black and gray. I really wanted to get a colorful one because I have to many gray and black things… so I got this one which still has gray in it but pink stripes is better then say white or black! 🙂
I love this skirt so much! I like having pieces of clothes that can provide a pop of color to my outfit! It can be anything from a skirt, to a necklace. Just something to turn a boring outfit into a less boring outfit. 😀
My “choker” is actually a silver chain I had and I just put it to fit around my neck like a choker. Have you ever done anything like that?
Shirt- Thrift Store
Skirt- I can not for the life of me remember the name of the store.
Well, I can never think of a “cool” way to end my posts so….
