30-Day Modesty Challenge Week 3

 "Modesty is always Beautiful." 
- G.K. Chesterton

I came across a blog post from the Chastity project on  a 30-Day Modesty Challenge. The task is for women to post OOTDs (Outfit of the Day) styled in a modest way for the next 4 weeks.

I became interested on this challenge because I was inspired by Kileen's blog post which showed that women CAN look beautiful even when dressing modestly.

Some women are a little bit skeptic on how this can be accomplished. Sometimes I also tend to think that dressing modestly is synonymous with daggy clothing and boring styles.

I am not much an OOTD type of person. I usually do not follow fashion trends and I dress very plainly. Hence, I thought of getting help from my workmates for this project.

This week, I took another set of random shots of me and some of my workmates who styled their outfits in the most modest way they know how. It was an on-the-spot thing (yet again!) and I wasn't able to inform them that I would take their shots. I took these photos after our movie date.

I'm super glad they are supportive of this project and participated with much gusto. Love you girls!!!  

Here are the random modest styles I got for Week 3:

Tricia looks fabulously chic with her cream top, above-the-knee floral skirt, and those ankle strap beauties!

MK went for some neutral tones with her tan-on-black ensemble and accessorized with a bronze necklace and a black leather bag with vintage buckles.

Jacq wore a bow-patterned, moss green dress and she synched the waist with a brown bow.

Kat did some color blocking with her tan and royal blue dress.

If you feel you are called to dress more modestly, there are so many resources out there. I personally started checking out modesty boards in Pinterest and there are tons of inspiration! You may also try using this hashtag #30daymodestychallenge in your search.

Honestly, the more I research about it and its effects on both men and women, the more I am inspired to do it. Plus, my husband totally supports me on this! Love you dear!

To make your search a little bit easier, I'm linking a video from my fave top model, Leah Darrow on her thoughts about modest dressing. 

Let's keep praying for each other, sisters! 

Yours in Christ,

The Catholic Chic
