modesty 101 // from her point of view

Updated 1/6/14

    Modesty is a dreaded subject for most people, but it doesn't have to be. So, here is my point of view and just a few tips.

    Most of us all have trouble sometimes when it comes to dressing, because we want to be noticed or fit in. Then, we show off a little skin in hope for a little attention or acceptance. But honestly this is very bad. The issue is no longer how you dress, but why. What you might not realize is that how valuable you are and that you don't ever have to show off your body or get someones approval to feel you are worth something. YOU ARE VALUABLE. Now keep saying that over and over, write it on your mirror. YOU ARE VALUABLE. YOU ARE VALUABLE. You are a priceless and beautiful. Matthew 10:31 "So do not be afraid you are worth more than sparrows."

So the question now is, why should we dress modest? Why? Let me tell you why.


Number 1- You are valuable and you need to respect your body. If your shorts are too tight and you have a really low-cut shirt, do you think that people are looking at you and saying, "wow, it is nice to see a modest fashionable young women" or are they saying "for christmas santa is getting you some real clothes". Honestly which do you want to be?

Number 2- You will feel more confident walking into work or school, knowing that you're not cutting it close to the dress code. You will be RESPECTED. You don't have to worry about pulling your skirt down every single second or pulling your shirt up. People will see beyond your body and they will notice the inside.



Number 3- In the long run you will be so thankful you dressed modestly. This one is a little hard to explain but 20 years from now do you want to look back and have bad memories about being the girl who was dying for attention or do you want to be the confident young lady who had a bright future ahead of her?  Some of you may think that it is silly, but dressing your body modestly could bring the best people into your life or even your dream job.



Now for 2 tips to live by on dressing modestly. 

Number 1- the B rule. Your breast or butt should not be clearly visible. Don't wear shorts that barely cover your butt or a shirt that is very low cut.

Number 2- If you are debating whether to wear (xyz) or not, DON'T WEAR IT. Inside you know you shouldn't be wearing it, so don't. If you have trouble with this, get rid of the piece of clothing that you question.

I hope you guys enjoyed this post and remember YOU ARE VALUABLE. Matthew 10:31 "So do not be afraid you are worth more than sparrows." I would love to hear your feedback, thanks for reading. xoxo.
