Hey maidens! Wow, has November flown by or what?! I cannot believe and find it extremely hard to fathom how we are already in the LAST MONTH OF 2014!!!! Crazy! Time is fleeing quickly, my sisters, and we must rise up and stand together in this rapidly ending world as a force of the light and beauty of Christ our King through true and biblical femininity.
Even though these pins aren't necessarily modest styles intended for our current month of December, they were nonetheless picked out with a crisp and cool month in mind. November, for me, was very chilly; yet, a lover of clothing and fashion as I am, I enjoy venting my creativity by mixing different colors and textures to create endless combinations of fun, practical, and modernly fresh outfits for the modest maidens out there.
A word about SKIRTS IN THE COLD. Look, I understand what it means to be cold. And I understand what wearing skirts in the winter can mean: being cold. But like anything, my dear sisters, there's a right way and a wrong way to do it. That includes wearing skirts when it's cold.
September and Pinterest haven't really spent much time together this year in my world, but I did manage to gather up my top five favorites from what I did see.
My feed is pretty well rounded out, from small-town pinners to vogue magazines and top style icons. I see a lot, and have to weed through a lot. But, to me, its worth it, because I deem it a very important thing for a daughter of the Most High to seek to be both modest and modern in her endeavors.
Here's a secret: I used to be so consumed with dressing modestly that I went way to far into the “Little House on the Prairie” extreme. True story, ask my sister.
I think that modesty in dress and character, as well as an all-around Biblical womanhood, is something that needs to be righteously attractive, not a legalistic reproach or a liberal twin to the world. That is why I personally, as a young woman in Christ, find it such a blessing to stay up-to-date somewhat with the world of style and fashion, not so that I can conform to its quickly changing standards and unrealistic whims, but so that I can remain fresh and in-touch in my appearance as I take a stand for Christ and His righteousness through image. Let's face it, we live in a society where image is everything and where the people we come in contact with make their first and most defining impressions of us with what they see.
The strength a sister can give to her sister is a true gift. I pray that these posts may be uplifting, inspiring, and motivating. All centered around modesty and biblical femininity in a modern world. Hugs! ❤︎ Erica
