It all started as I decided to wear a skirt this morning… I thought to myself, “Self, you should wear skirts more often. Why don’t you?”
Once upon a time, many years ago, I started wearing my clothing tighter and started desiring to wear immodest clothes. My dad, being wise and seeing where my heart was heading, asked my mom, me and my sisters to wear only skirts or dresses until such a time as he saw fit. I obeyed, but i was NOT happy about it. I was fearful people would think I was strange or weird or that I would look ugly.
As time went on, I began to grow to like wearing skirts. I discovered some cute outfits I never knew I had, and realized that when others saw me in a skirt, they saw a lady vs a girl. I had way more doors held for me and things carried during that time period. I felt very feminine. I also learned that skirts really don’t hinder ones actions in any way.
Now, mind you, I have nothing against jeans (I wear jeans and sweat pants all the time), but I enjoy challenging myself, so I decided to go thirty days wearing mostly skirts and dresses. (I have no desire to work out in a skirt…)
During this time, I’d like to evaluate what it means to be modest and feminine in today’s world. I’m hoping to get some godly friends to either join me in this challenge or to perhaps guest post or lend their ideas.
If you would like to join the Femininity Challenge (April 1-30), feel free to join in at any point. It doesn’t have to be for a month, it can be for any portion of time that u=you would like. You also don’t have to wear skirts, maybe you already do that, or you feel like that sends the message that you can only be feminine in a skirt (not true) then you can just be sure to dress modestly and act in a feminine way.
Have fun, and I hope we are all able to learn something through this.
