At Church With Only A Skirt On

Church skirt #OOTD

I basically showed up at church, wearing nothing but my grandma’s old skirt.

And I got nothing but compliments.

When I wear this outfit, ladies ask me questions. It begins with an over-all praise, then their expression focuses. They step back, stare at my knees, and say, “wait. Is it a skirt or a dress?”

Having been blessed with five feet and two inches vertically, I struggle to find clothes that stay on my small frame.

That may sound like bragging to you. But believe me when I say: if you’re going to invest in wearing clothes on a Sunday, you want those clothes to stay on your body.

Otherwise, it’s a waste of investment.

Safety pins were introduced early on, and my life was changed. I’d hike skirts up to my chest, pin them tight under my arm, add a belt for figure, and a cardigan as extra cover-up.

Just like that, I repurposed a vintage skirt. The skirt is also longer in the back, so I effortlessly created a high-low. Win for the win!

Rebekah, you’re too proud of yourself. Calm down.

I’m sorry, Rebekah, you’re right. Calming down . .

A few years ago, I thought “modesty” meant buttoned up polo shirts and baggy jean skirts, but that’s not true.

I just want to say that this outfit is modest. It covers the five B’s [belly, back, boobs, butt, bra]. It’s also passed the knee. And (hopefully I’m not the only one who thinks this,) but I think this outfit is really nice.

I don’t have a sister, but I’m in a sisterly, girly-advice-giving while I brush your hair and paint your toenails mood, apparently. Also let’s be honest, I wanted to show you my outfit. Anyways, I’m just saying.

You can still look fashionable, while keeping the boys’ eyes—up here.

    1. Modest style UNITE! No it makes me really happy that you said that. =-) I think modesty and midi skirts are coming back now, but there was a time that if you were too covered up for people’s taste, you were considered a prude. I don’t know if it was like that for you growing up.

      1. I was more of a tomboy until, like, 10th grade (so I mostly just stuck to t-shirts and gym shorts, haha), and then my high school’s dress code was pretty strict (I personally thought it was reasonable, but a lot of people though otherwise). Nobody seemed to mind if I wore outfits that were more conservative. I’m glad that modesty is coming back now though! 🙂


      2. I wonder if it’s a tomboy thing. I was a tomboy too so I wanted comfy clothes I could have fun in, and those clothes are typically modest so I wonder if that factors in.


      3. Hm, that would make sense. Even now that I like wearing cute clothes, I still would rather not have to worry about adjusting my clothes every few minutes because they’re too short/revealing. I like being comfortable, and although I like fashion a lot more now, my main focus is still on having fun, haha.


      4. Haha me too!!! Every now and then I try to look cute and wear that shirt that refuses to cooperate, but then I remember how much I hate that cute shirt that refuses to cooperate. Having a good time is way more important.
