Modest Clothing and You

Hey Neighbors!

Modest clothing is a big topic in our house.  Having 4 girls we often discuss our clothing, and one of our concerns is to always dress modestly, while being comfortable.  Now that my boys have reached 16 and 18, I notice even more when someone is not dressed modestly.  How about you?  Is this something important in your home?  Anyway, here are a few tips we personally use for deciding if something is modest enough.  Perhaps you can use these ideas, or modify them for your home.

A friend of ours uses the term, loose, layered and long, when describing modest clothing.  We always look for clothing that does not cling.  So when we purchase a dress, skirt or jumper we go for long and flowing.  My personal preference is jumpers, while my daughters prefer skirts.  Of course denim is our favorite fabric for casual wear.

For tops we like them to come to our collarbone and cover our stomachs.  If we find a sweater or blouse that does not make it to the collarbone, we generally grab a nice t-shirt or camisole to wear underneath.  I love layering a loose sweater over a coordinating top.  The girls also have dickeys they will wear.  My youngest for some reason really likes these.  We have also put small snaps inside a collar and attached a piece of lace.  So feminine!

When trying on a skirt, dress or jumper we try standing, walking, and bending just to make sure it is not revealing.  It is amazing what seemed to look nice and when you start walking or bending, you realize it is not exactly what you want.  There is one nice thing in our family.  My daughters can trade out alot of their outfits, and they get passed down. We personally wear most of our skirts ankle length. My youngest daughter likes to wear petticoats where the lace just barely show under the skirt.  Another one of our favorites is womens sweaters.

So there we have it.  Long, loose and layered.  What tips do you have for modest clothing?  Please share, as I love to hear different ideas.

I am participating in a blogger campaign by Bucks2Blog and was compensated. However, the views and opinions are my own.

Baby First TV 'I Can Sign" First Words

Hey Neighbors! Here is a really neat gift idea for someone with a young child.  Here we have I Can Sign (First Words) from Baby First  TV.  Now, I am just going to share right here that we have friends who have taught two of their children to sign at a very young age.  And it works!  Their children could sign before they could talk. The Dvd will teach your child many useful words that will be used in day to day life.  Words like: eat, water, milk, cookie, ear, feet hands, kiss, sleep, book, mother, father, and many other words.  Each word is taught in a short video clip where they will see pictures of the word/item and people signing.  There is also a little character at the bottom corner of the video signing along.  The Dvd can be done on English or Spanish.  Also included on the Dvd are printable coloring pages that you can print off by inserting the Dvd into your computer.  Inside the cover of the Dvd case is a little booklet that covers some of the words you and your child

What To Do About Those Fuzzy Uninvited Guests In The Home

When we talk about pests in the home, the most common that we tend to deal with are the creepy-crawlies that find their way in. Ants, termites, and spiders, for instance. Occasionally though, you have a real chance of getting a much bigger, fuzzier unwanted guest in the home. What do you do about the fact your home is at risk of becoming a wildlife sanctuary for some truly unhealthy and even dangerous beasts? Picture by Alexas_Fotos Know the signs It doesn’t matter if you’re in a suburban home, a country cottage, or a fourth-floor apartment. Some animals can find their way just about anywhere. It’s worth knowing the signs of pest infestation so you can confirm it and act on it immediately. Spotting droppings, keeping an ear out for scratching, and looking for signs of nesting like shredded paper, scrunched leaves, and grass clippings around the home without explanation can help you start fighting back.
