What I Wear-Awkward Seasons Of Life...


I'm not sure that I ever mentioned that my dad closed our church down in June. Sometimes I'm not sure how much personal stuff I should or want to share. Anyways....
My dad felt like God was telling him we were done. Since then it's been rather strange for me. I never had the choice of where to go to church, it was always the one my dad pastored. Now I'm in a different season of life. We decided it would be a good idea to go to another city and attend church there for the Summer, get a break and allow people from our church to find their churches first. 
Now comes the cooler weather and with it a question. Where to now?  
In visiting churches I've found something lacking: friendliness. 
   It's bizarre for me being a visitor, my whole life my dad was a pastor, so I'm on the other side of things. The feeling of being out of place, awkward and unsettled. I wanted to take this opportunity and to ask something of you. Tomorrow when you go to church, say hello to someone you've never talked too before. I can't tell you how much means to have someone just say, "Hello." Our society today is very self focused and not so hot at reaching out. 
Introduce yourself and at least say "Hello." I promise it will mean a lot to that person.

Overdue Dress Review K Couture


Today I get to share this beautiful red dress from K Couture.
They've been so patient with me in getting this dress review on, as it's taken me far too long to do so. 

My Grandpa passed away and this dress arrived just shortly before, so it got swept under the rug a bit. But I determined tonight to sit my rear down and write this. 

Here goes-I had a great experience with this company. The dress fits beautifully and it was just plain fun ordering it. You get to customize your dress, down to color, neckline and sleeves! 
They sell these dresses for formals. I think it would be awesome to use this company for a wedding, since you could customize each one based on personal modesty beliefs. 
The fabric feels high quality and the dress is exactly what I expected to receive. I highly recommend K Couture for your bridesmaid, formal, or just a cute dress need. 


What I Wear-Floral Dress And Lace Crop Top


This lace crop top is actually serving two purposes-1. It's cute and breaks up the pattern. 2. It's covering up the fact that this dres is just a bit too snug in the bust area. It fits, but the buttons gap, which I'm not comfortable with. So 'voila! Instant fit fixer. 

My excuse for not posting much lately is that it's been too hot! I've pretty much been living in shorts and a tank top or tshirt. Who wants to see that for ten posts in a row?! 
But thankfully with the hot weather come lots of festivals and fun. 
My mom, siblings and I were able to watch Inside Out at the drive in theater-so fun! Have any of you seen Inside Out? Such a cute movie. 

Do you have any sneaky "fit fixer" tips? Leave a comment, I'd love to hear your tip.

What I Wear-"Feels Like Me" and Meeting Raquel

For some unknown reason, I really love this dress! It just feels like "me." It's obviously too short to wear by itself, so I wore black leggings underneath for coverage. Considering I scored this dress for $3.99 at Goodwill, how can I go wrong wearing it? Truly though, it's one of those awesome pieces that doesn't need a lot of accessories, just a grab and go outfit. 

I'm late posting (I know, shame on me!). Lately posts get up when they get up. I've been pretty busy and this nasty 95deg, + days are not helping matters. FYI- I'm threatening to move to Alaska (jk). 
On a completely different, totally unrelated side note, I got to visit with Raquel when she was in town last week. This was our first time meeting in person, which was pretty awesome. We had coffee and just talked. it's always fun meeting people who I've talked to/read on the internet, much better in person though :) 


What I Wear-How To Wear Shorts Modestly


Im sure you clicked and were like "What?! Shorts?! Aren't those immodest?" My answer would be-no. There are certain items the modest community dismiss straight away, no questions asked. 
I don't wear skirts very far above my knee. My reasoning is that if I bend over, a skirt is going to show a lot more than I'm going to be okay with. Shorts are a different story, I have to feel comfortable in them, I can't be constantly tugging them down. About two-three inches below my finger tips (with arms at my sides) is as short as I would ever go. Some people won't agree with me, some women don't believe pants are okay. 

I hope that everyone feels safe here, that no one has to feel like they have to dress a certain way (except what The Lord personally leads you to). Dressing for other people, letting others tell you what is and isn't modest, nope-not the answer. If you don't own your convictions, you'll easily drop them. 
Being swayed too easily will cause you to be tossed about, decide what modest is to you-and own it! 

Do you wear shorts? Why or why not?
