How to be Modest and in style
A Photo Journey
By Rita Davidson
I thought you’d enjoy seeing these pictures of my modest outfits I shared on my Facebook page. I know not everyone is on Facebook so enjoy this sneak peak of how real modesty looks for me. I want to share how it is possible to be modest and in style, even on a small budget and even if your struggling with plus sizes! Enjoy!
Here is my favorite place to shop! A huge warehouse place with second hand choices! You never know what you might find here!
Here I am having fun taking a picture near the shoes! My outfit here is a $30 skirt, used silk shirt $7, $15 scarf. Simple, but it works!
Here I am in my kitchen, my favorite room in my house since it’s so organized! I’m wearing a $12scarf (can you tell I LOVE scarves!) a second hand linen shirt $5, and a second hand skirt $10. Total $27 Again, a simple outfit, that is modest, yet practical for my daily work.
Another outfit, in my organized kitchen (you should see the rest of my house, ho boy!) Here I have a $18T-shirt(the minimum I would EVER wear) and too expensive for my taste!, plus a $12scarf (yes, scarves and me are best buddies!), and a used denim/spandex skirt for $20. Plus accessories. Total $50 Another outfit that is easy to wear, comfortable, practical, yet modest.
Here is a funny view of my shoes! See that hem? That was the day I was on my way to speak at a conference. I seen that hem, and said, oh well! Annoying, but nothing that I’m going to worry about. If you want to avoid this, ‘hang dry’ your skirts and stretch out the hem. These are my favorite kind of shoes. A bit of style, but practical and stylish. I’m not a BIG shoe person, just like a few options that are versatile and comfortable. These are likely $75 shoes on sale, bought brand new, but last me a few years.
Here I am on my way to my speaking conference. My front door is not nearly as nice as my kitchen as you can see! J But again here I have a $12scarf (I did say I LOVE scarves right?) a used shirt $5, Sale sweater $20, $30 denim skirt, plus accessories. All in all, it worked well for the ugly weather. Total $67 Was comfortable, yet not something I had to worry about where my shirt was, or if this was on straight.
So we come to the end of my photo journey of my modest clothing this week.
I hope you have enjoyed it and see how modest dressing can be affordable, yet stylish. (remember I’m not 16 years old here!) J
I encourage you to find a style that is modest and suits you. If you enjoyed this, or have any questions or comments, be sure to let me know below! I love to hear from you!
