I have no inch measurements for how long skirts should be, nor do I have an inch measurement for how high a neckline should be. Every skirt I own is below knee so I can wear it to school. I could get a slightly shorter one for church, but why would I want a skirt I can only wear to one place? If I'm going somewhere else fancy like a concert, than I just wear one of my below knee skirts. No fuss.
I can usually tell at a glance if a neckline will work on me or not. If it's in a gray area ("Well, it's okay as long as I don't do this or that....") then I just wear a scarf with it.
I am pro pants. I only wear skirts to church, school, and fancy occasions. Around the house, during my sister's play practice after school, babysitting, riding a bike to the library, ect (I guess these are the only reasons why I leave the house) I wear pants. My sister wears skirts everywhere though, so...I guess normal people can do that too.
I am not skinny. For some reasons, all modesty blogs that I've seen feature naturally skinny people. What works on my naturally slender sister won't necessarily work on me. Thus, I will show you how the rest of us can be modest and practical too.
I don't know why I dress modestly. I always hear stuff about "Don't lead guys astray!" (because they have no control over their thoughts?) or "Dress for God!" (What does that even mean?). All I know is if I ever understand, I don't want to look back and wonder how many guys' lives I made harder by what I wore.
I don't wear vintage clothes. For some reason it's very popular among Christians, so...okay. But I love living in 2014, and I'm so glad this is where God put me.
I'm not going to work extra hard to look "feminine", whatever that is. I love pants. I love the cast tee-shirts my school makes. Are they girly? No. Do I care? No. I want to be comfortable, dang it. Unless I'm going somewhere fancy, comfort gets precedence. I don't even own a pair of heels.
So there you have it! Once I get my sister on board as a photographer (and perhaps guest post), and my mom's permission to use her phone (or her camera) we can begin!
