As always, the GirlTalkers are right on target with a recent post.
As the sun begins to shine more frequently, and daffodils and tulips poke their heads up, it’s time to be reminded that warmer weather does not not give us permission for less modesty or purposefulness in our dress.
I really appreciate their link to the Modesty Heart Check that they have put together (see the Girl Talk link above, to find the link to download the Heart Check). As a member of the same family of churches (Sovereign Grace), I am familiar with these guidelines and questions, but had forgotten about them and was so pleased to see that they have put them together in a downloadable file.
These questions are perfect for reminding ourselves of the necessary checks that we need to make in determining the modesty and appropriateness of an outfit, and would also be perfect to work through with our daughters as well. Even though Abbie is only 3, I am already teaching her about tops or skirts that are not modest, and how to wear dresses and skirts like a lady. I think the earlier, the better!
As well, they linked to a great modesty clothing store that I had never heard of before– it’s called DownEast Basics . They carry tops, camisoles and tanks, below the knee skirts and dresses, as well as few other items. What impressed me was how reasonable their prices are, even at regular price, and their sale prices are quite good! Check it out!
On a side note, I’ve noticed in my stats that my Feminine and Modest category is a popular one, and I feel so bad that it’s one that is so infrequently added to– I hope this helps a little to satisfy those who are interested!
