Feelin' Feminine Challenge

Tuesday, January 25, 2011

Well, it's that time again!

It's been nearly a year since I last did the "Feelin' Feminine Challenge". Although I wear skirts everyday anyway, I still enjoy the participating in the "challenge" because it reminds me to not only be modest, but to be feminine in my modesty. Remember that wearing a feed sack isn't feminine. It's may be modest, but it doesn't help you look graceful and womanly. I believe that as women, God created us to be beautiful ~ of course we must be modest in whatever we wear, but it's equally important (in my opinion, anyway) to wear clothing that enhances our femininity and lets people know that we are women. It's the way God created us. You don't see men wearing dresses, becuase that is an article of clothing that is distinctly feminine. You can't go wrong when wearing a long flowing skirt; it's so girly!

So, the point of this challenge? To wear, for an entire week, skirts, dresses, or jumpers. It may be difficult, but it's a great way to remember, every day, that you are a female. I know I've had friends who tell me that they not only look more feminine in a dress, but they feel more feminine; in other words, wearing a dress reminded them all day long that they are to be gracious, gentle, demure, and distinctly feminine in how they carry themselves.

Another aspect of this challenge is to be, what I call, "fashionably modest". Be creative here. You can be very modest and still wear pretty clothing. I enjoy mixing and matching different skirts and tops; blouses are very nice, so are vests. As I said earlier, being modest does not mean you have to wear a feed sack. (But there is definitely room in there for wearing modest jeans when doing farm chores!) Enjoy God's great gift of femininity He has blessed you with and explore the many different clothing possibilites that are out there.

(Ahem, that is, if you are a girl).

So, does anyone want to join me? It's much more fun if we all do it together. I need to know if there's any interest....if so, we'll start next Monday. Please leave a comment if you're interested; and if you don't have a blog, you can still join in! For those who are interested, just leave me a comment at the bottom of this post. And if you do have a blog, spread the word! I am going to have a place for you all to link up each day to show your outfits if you'd like, so the more the merrier.

I've participated in the Feelin' Feminine challenge once, and I had a wonderful time! I will most definitely talk with my parents and see if I may join in with you! I will let you know as soon as I can!

Many Blessings,

Hello! I found your blog through a comment you left on Risa, Momo, and Sam's blog. I've been enjoying reading about your family for a few months now.

I would love to join (always wanted to do one of these, and I always see them after they are over!), but sadly my camera is away being fixed, and won't be back for WEEKS!

Just wanted to let you know that I like your blog, and would have done the challenge if I could. :)

I think I WOULD join, Rachel, but I've already done this (or something close) once or twice before :-D

Hope the waiting for your mom and Courtney isn't TOO bad! :-D
