Don’t let the summer and heat be an excuse for skipping out on modesty this season.
“Do you not know that your bodies are temples of the Holy Spirit, who is in you, whom you have received from God? You are not your own; you were bought at a price. Therefore honour God with your bodies.” 1 Corinthians 6:19-29
This passage should not be taken lightly. Consider the words I am not my own, for I have been made new. You are made new in Christ and I encourage you to think this way when getting dressed for the day! This season yields a lot of tops, which are very practical for the summer heat but definitely not modest. This includes a lot of crop tops….To be honest with you I own some of these crop tops but I wear them a little differently than most. I pair them with bottoms that are high waisted and actually cover up the areas intended to be shown by them.
Keep in mind, however, not all high waisted bottoms are going to reach the bottom of the crop tops. If you choose to try this trend always opt for a longer top just in case. Or layer up! Layering is a great way to keep yourself modest with anything you choose to wear. Try a cami under a normally too short top or even under a shirt with minimal sleeves.
If you are worried about being too hot when layering try wearing things hat are not as tight and more flowing. Remember what you wear should make you feel comfortable so find out what that is and go with it.
“For everything in the world, comes not from the Father but from the world. The world and it’s desires pass away but whoever does the will of God lives forever.” 1 John 2:16-17
Until Next Time,
