A week of modesty

I get asked sometimes what wearing skirts all the time looks like, and how practical is it, things like that. So, I have been taking pictures of myself every morning for the last week! Just to share with you fine people! Hopefully this will give you a little bit of an idea of what it can look like every day. I don't have an expensive wardrobe, or much fashion you'll see momentarily. Most of my clothes were bought second hand or on clearance. Both because I like the planet, and I'm poor/cheap. I also have an insanely colorful selection of skirts, see:

I doubt you'll actually want to take any clothing advice from me! But, nonetheless, I wanted to show you how cheap, fat people rock skirt wearing!

A few warnings: These pictures were taken at like five in the morning. I am not that creative at five in the morning, you'll see I don't know what the heck to do with my arms. They are all in the same spot, that is because for the full body shots I had to use my entertainment stand to hold the camera. For the lower portion ones (I'll add at the end) I used my dining room table, and that's my entry's ugly. My house is old, and messy. My modest may not be your modest. The purpose of this is purely encouragement for my fellow modest ladies...and maybe a few laughs at my lack of taste in clothing. 

Without further adieu:

First up we have this super comfy and pretty cute dress. 
This was worn to save some babies, do a little shopping, 
eat too much food, go to Mass, kidnap a priest,
eat more food, and have an all around awesome day with
the bestie.

Dress: Wal-Mart, $17.00 
Tank Top: I've had it since high school
Shell: I stole it from my has pockets!

I love this outfit. I'm not sure why, I just love the way this skirt hangs. 
This was worn for Mass, chilling with the hubs, 
tickling the niece, eating my grandma's fried chicken,
picking on my sister, loving on the fam, and having an all
around spectacular Sunday.

Scarf: I use it as a head covering in church, got it at a local purse store. 
$15.00, I know, I can't believe I paid that for a SCARF either!
Blue Tank Top: Wal-Mart, $5.00
Brown Shirt: Thrift Store $1.97
Skirt: K-Mart Clearance, $4.99

To start the week off we have a super casual, super comfortable
black skirt and a plain shirt. This was worn for praising the Lord, 
chasing little ones, sweeping, dusting, and cooking.

Black Tank Top: Had it since High School
Blue/Green Shirt: No idea
Black Skirt: Fashion Bug Clearance: $12.00

Tuesday I was a little tired this is my "sweat pants skirt" 
Because it's as comforting as a pair of sweatpants
but it's a skirt. This was worn for wiping little 
noses and hineys, scrubbing the toilet, giving hugs, and reading stories.

Purple Shirt: Wal-Mart Clearance, $3.00
Brown Skirt: Thrift Store, $2.97

This was worn for chasing away monsters, playing tag,
breaking up fights, vacuuming, hanging clothes on the line, 
and being chased around the yard by my husband.

Purple Shirt: Wal-Mart, $5.00
Khaki Skirt: Thrift Store, $2.97

Jeans and a t-shirt kind of day! Jean SKIRT, that is! 
This was worn for hours of playing outside, pushing
swings at the park, giving snuggles,
rocking babies, and eating dinner with my 

Black Tank Top: Had since High School (it's not the same top each time, 
I swear, I have four of them!)
Red Top: Yard Sale, $.50
Skirt: Craigslist, $5.00

This was worn for a trip to the doctor with the hubs,
going to two book stores, eating yummy things,
traveling in the car for four hours,
and jamming out to some Christian rock with 
my favorite guy!

White Tank Top: Yard Sale, $.25
Blue Shirt: Wal-Mart Clearance, $3.00
Black Skirt: Craigslist, $5.00

There you have it, folks, a week of me dressing all frumpy and modest and what not. I really am cheap! I hope this gives you a little glimpse into what dressing modestly can look like, this is just one way, mine. You will probably have a totally different style than me...mostly because I just wear what I like and what's comfortable. 

Here are a few shots of the bottom part of some of my outfits, not all because I forgot some days, but they should help you get a better idea of what they look like. 


  1. Your post is encouraging. I like to wear dresses and skirts in warmer weather. Cold weather I just can't do it. LOL!

    1. Thanks! It takes some adjusting, that's for sure!


Thanks for stopping by! I'd love to hear your thoughts...seriously, I get so excited when I get comments! =)
