One of the hardest things to do in my daily routine is to get dressed. As I start to look into my closet many thoughts run through my head.
Does this look okay? Am I comfortable? Is this okay for the weather? Am I covered and acceptable? Is this outfit going to change my path on the journey I want to be on with God?
And that’s just on the days when I can stop and think before the rush of my daily lifestyle. I’ll admit sometimes I lose sight of what it’s all about. I put my own comfort first not realizing how that may be affecting others around me and ultimately my relationship with God.
As the summer presses forward we, as women of God, are faced with the hard battle of being comfortable, weather permitting, and modest. Which is really hard when the culture that surrounds us is probably thinking the exact opposite. Especially when the stores follow suit. Keep this in mind when you are picking an outfit for the day:
“But among you there must not be even a hint of sexual immorality, or of any kind of impurity, or of greed, because these are improper for God’s holy people.” ~Ephesians 5:3
Since, maxi skirts and dresses are becoming a trend it may make our summer easier!
They are fun, flowy, and simply modest. Since the summer is hot always make sure to get skirts and dresses of a lighter material so that it doesn’t become too much on a hot day. Sometimes with lighter skirts and dresses I have found that they are see-through. And a majority of the time the built-in slips never go far down the legs.
I would highly recommend adding a slip to your wardrobe! It can add inches to dresses and skirts that were never long enough before and will help you too keep your sanity and the clothes you love.
Or if you are crafty and are up to a challenge you could add fabric to the bottoms of clothes to make them longer yourself.
“She is clothed in strength and dignity; she can laugh at the days to come.” ~ Proverbs 31:23
Until Next Time,
