I wanted to share with you a favorite outfit of mine I wore yesterday and today. A white blouse with my favorite wool plum sweater and favorite jean skirt and black shoes.
All of these items were thrifted or given to me. The sweater was $7.00 thrifted, the skirt was $7.00 thrifted, the blouse was free from my sisters closet, and the black shoes were $4.00 thrifted. That a grand total of only $18.00 and I have used these items over and over again! The jean skirt goes with so many of my things in my closet as does the sweater, shoes, and blouse.
I have found as others ladies I know agree that when you dress in a feminine and beautiful manner you are more likely to be motivated to get things accomplished. Maybe its just me, but when I put on a feminine outfit I am ready for the day and reading to tackle tasks that need to get done. I love cleaning when I am in a 1950's shirt dress or a skirt and blouse, I do not always wear extremely fancy or over the top outfits, but I want to dress in a way that is modest, makes me feel beautiful, and pleases my Heavenly and earthly father. I want my reputation to be good in others eyes, our clothing says a lot about our inner person. It says who we are. So if you are dressing in an immodest manner that may say there is something that needs to be dealt with on the inside. I know for me the inside of my heart had to be dealt with before I could see that my outer appearance needed to be dealt with in regards to modesty and femininity too. So pray about it to the Lord. He always answers!
