Feminine Friday







Today I am participating in Feminine Friday, hosted by my Sis-In-Law, at her blog NaturalMamax4.


This is a light, airy dress I found at Wal-Mart. I love dresses! The sleeves are a little shorter than what I would like, so if I am going out in public I cover them with my jean jacket (with corresponding flower, of course). Flowers are a cute way to accessorize your outfits and give them that extra punch!



Note: This pic was taken by my short 5 yo and is a most unflattering angle :(.

I am a girly-girl and have always enjoyed dressing up. Dresses and skirts make me feel feminine and lady-like. I was raised in a home and church that taught dresses-only. It's just second nature to me. I do realize that not everyone holds these convictions, so please do not take this post as judgmental. I also know you can wear a dress/skirt and still be indecent and immodest. For me, it is not about following a "do or don't" rule, but about reflecting holiness in every aspect of my life--especially my dress :).

My SIL made a great point on her FF blog last week: If you don't usually wear dresses, try one and see if you notice how men and people in general treat you differently. Have fun and celebrate your feminine side! :)

p.s. My blog friend Chrissy has dedicated her entire week of blogging to celebrating modesty. Check it out: http://mother-moments.blogspot.com.

You look so pretty. You are so radiant in Jesus sister. Not because of your dress(which is a a bonus) but your kind sweet spirit.

Hello Sister!
So nice to see all these bloggings on modesty.Sadly you see modesty/standards falling at many church's so this is so nice to see.
God bless you!
