I knew Laurén before she started Modern Modesty and become a member of the group as soon as she started it (thanks Kimberly Julian for inviting me to be part of MM!)
I love Modern Modesty because I believe the majority of the members truly desire to please God with the way they dress and that has form a world wide sisterhood of encouraging godly and stylish woman. I truly appreciate all the efforts of Laurén and all of the other administrators in keeping this page true to it's purpose.
I believe that we can do anything and everything that pleases the Lord, that includes taking care of my walk with God, taking care of my Babe and children, keeping a house clean, serving others and be a reflection to others of what God wants me to be, which includes my personal attire or ootds! ;) LOL!
Here is a few tips that have helped me:
1. Figure out the "cut or style" that fits your body type. Try on different skirts, dresses, tops, etc. Go with what works for the body you have, not the body you wish you had! ;) I would love to have long legs so I could wear a pleated midi-skirt, but if I try to wear one I will look like an oompa loompa!
2. Build the foundation of your wardrobe with quality, classy pieces I promise, it's worth the investment! I don't spend a lot of money on trendy pieces. I save those for my "bargain" shopping. ;)
3. Combine a classy piece with a trendy piece to create a nice balance.
4. Let your accessories rock!! There is so many directions you can go, the same outfit can be changed just by the jewelry you wear, making more classy, trendy or modern, etc.
Thank you, Laurén, the administrators, and all of you ladies that share your outfits. You all are an encouragmeng and a blessing to me.
Have a great day!
