The Way We Dress

Before I write this blog, I just wanted to say, that I didn't write that last blog about the cell was in an e-mail!!

*What I want to know is how a culture that was SO demanding of girls wearing long skirts and dresses and NEVER acceptably wearing pants now wears the shortest, tightest, lowest, articles of clothing possible. WHY?! Where or when did everything in our society get so crazy that it has reached this point? *

As a girl, it’s HARD to find MODEST clothing to wear. But don’t give up hope, girls, it’s not impossible to dress modestly. But then, when we dress modestly, we don’t want to have the collar all the way up our necks, the skirts long below our ankles…we can still be in style, without having to wear clothes that are too tight, too low, too short.

In the book, DO HARD THINGS it says, “Isn’t something wrong when girls are constantly judged on their physical appearance and pressed to become more and more sexually provocative, yet are so rarely expected to develop qualities of character and intellect beneath the surface?”

So every single girl struggles with being modest. But let’s step up, and be modest instead of following the crowd..
