The Tough Stuff: Modesty in the Locker Room

Can I ask you a question? Do you ever catch yourself staring at something? Anything. Something apaling, something beautiful, something shiny… something provacotive? I took a spin class last week and it’s come to my attention that it’s kind of ridiculous the amount of staring that goes on in a public gym. This spin class was in a separate room in the gym, but it’s a room with mirrors all around on the inside, and on the walls facing outward, there are windows that let you look into the whole classroom. Right outside the classroom are tons of weight machines […]

The Classy Track Pants You’ll Want to Wear Everywhere…

Hello there! I know what you’re thinking… TWO posts in one week when I didn’t post anything for over a month?! What is going on… LOL Well, today I want to inform you all of an awesome alternative to yoga pants that I recently dicovered and I wanted to tell you about it while they are still in stock!! Just over a year ago I came to the personal conclusion that it just wasn’t modest for me to wear sports leggings or yoga pants in public. I’ve since been trying to find stylish alternatives that don’t accentutate every bump and […]

The Tough Stuff: Hearts and Necklines (Part 1)

I did a 2-piece series on hearts and hemlines here and here but I have yet to really address the neckline issue in any of my posts besides in passing. I think I may have been avoiding this because it’s hard. It’s hard to talk and think and criticize yourself on (like just about anything else), let alone others. I’m not here to criticize, but there have been a few things that have pushed me to the point where I know I need to touch on this. The first thing that prodded me to write about immodest necklines was a […]

The Tough Stuff: Rethinking the Size Complex

This post has taken me a while. It’s been brewing in my mind for some time now, and I’ve struggled on how to dive into this topic, so I’m going to do just that… Dive in. I guess where this post really began was with my recent ‘denim’ mental breakdown. (You probably think I’m writing this from the funny farm right now, but hear me out) After my crazy closet purge (that I still might be suffering from); I’m down from 5 jean skirts and a denim dress to 2 denim skirts. I also got rid of several pairs of jeans […]

The Tough Stuff: Hearts and Hemlines (Part 2)

In my last installment of ‘Hearts and Hemlines‘ I talked about the rising issue of skirts and dresses being super short and worse, being acceptable to many women that I would have considered to be very modest. In this post, I would like to show you how to remedy this situation and rather than break you down, encourage you that you CAN style skirts and dresses stylishly without sacrificing modesty. I will be showing 2 ways to make skirts and dresses that are too short modest. One way, involving very limited sewing knowledge (because that describes my sewing knowledge) and […]

The Tough Stuff: Shopping Self Control

Lately I’ve been struggling in the self control department when it comes to shopping. Throughout the holiday season I get hundreds of emails advertising sales and promotions from the low-end to the higher-end stores. It’s so tempting to splurge and indulge on these physical things especially when everyone else seems to be doing it. And there is nothing wrong with doing so… in moderation. I think that the modest woman strives to have self control in all aspects of her life. Obviously we can always do better at something and that’s OK. That’s being human. I’m sharing this not to […]

The Tough Stuff: Hearts and Hemlines (Part 1)

I’ve decided (very last minute) to make this a multi-part topic. There is a lot to cover when talking about this, and a lot to consider. I encourage you to read my other posts for some context on this because I’ve dabbled in this area in previous posts but not like this. Please share your thoughts or questions. Feel free to comment or email me privately. I apologize if it seems a bit scattered, sometimes it is difficult to focus on just one area because it is part of a much bigger whole- so bear with me :-). Today I […]

Girl, You Look Good in those Genes

Hello! First off. Let me just start by saying this post was really difficult for me to write. It was difficult because I KNOW I am guilty of all of the things I list below as being immodest. I’ve been working on this post since before I launched my blog. So, I want to make a blanket statement apology if I have ever offended (and I know I have- I’m sorry, Mom) anyone with the way I have presented myself in jeans. Phew. Ok. Blue Jeans. You have your favorite pair. Broken in just right, you could practically sleep in […]
