Hello fellow bloggers! I know, I know - it's been awhile. This month has flown right by and I've barely had time to catch my breath. With a (small) blessing in disguise, I am sick this weekend with what I think might be a stomach bug of some sort. Not really sure and it came out of nowhere, but the good news is that it's allowed me to slow down to a halting stop. My weekend full of plans went out the window and I've been doing nothing but lying in bed, catching up on my blogs and dreaming big dreams again.
While doing my blog-browsing, I've come across several really cool clothing ideas relating to modesty. Modesty has always been drilled into my head from the time I even knew what fashion was. My mom was always a big stickler for modesty and when I was a teenager I hated it. I pushed the limits and I rebelled a bit. I knew what I was doing was wrong, but at that point, I was in major selfish mode. Once I began college, that all changed. I did a 180, much to the relief of my mother. I not only made sure I dressed modestly, but I promoted it with wild abandon, because part of living a chaste life is to be a modesty queen. As the saying goes, "Modest is hottest." Men should love us for our inner beauty and should be able to appreciate our outer beauty without having to be tempted with lustful thoughts. We should embrace our feminine curves, but do so in a manner that leaves more than enough to the imagination. Don't flaunt it - save it for that one man who you'll be spending the rest of your life with - the one who will only have eyes for you.
I sometimes fall short, even now, with what I wear. It's not on purpose, but it's a constant work in progress. It's not always easy finding stylish, modest clothing today. It's definitely possible, but there are some styles out there that are so adorable, if only they had a sleeve or were 3 inches longer or were 2 inches closer to my neckline or...you get the point. So, I found a couple ideas to help "modestify" your wardrobe if you find something that needs some modesty built into it. I know I'm going to try out these ideas!
Coming from Welcome to the GOOd Life, here's a tutorial on how to "modestify your summer dress." Love it!
This is from Getti's Accessories and is the perfect solution to those tees that are a wee bit too low cut or if you're like me and have a toddler who likes to grab for the top of your shirt to use to pull down as he falls off your lap, it'll keep you from accidentally exposing yourself to the world. :)

I'm SO excited! I've been wanting to help out with our income since Mr. 3-yo was born and tried various things, but just never really got my feet off the ground for one reason or another. I felt guilty at times, especially during the time that Mr. H was out of work, that I was not doing anything that was helping earn a little extra. However, I came across this company, ThirtyOne, and thought, "Now this is something I CAN do!"
ThirtyOne is a Christian-based company for women that sells a whole variety of products that are practical mixed with a little vanity. They mostly sell different types of bags (purses, backpacks, totes, etc.) and many different accessories that go with these. Their products are cute and versatile and can appeal to any woman or girl. They have a child line as well as a teen line. Their name is based off of the Proverbs 31 woman, which I love! Once I learned all of this, I was hooked! I talked with Mr. H about it, and prayed and thought about it for awhile and then decided to dive in! Two days now and I've already booked parties and have a contact of someone who's also interested in becoming a consultant! I feel like God is really working here :).
So...if you're interested in looking at the products, please feel free to stop by my website: MyThirtyOne
