Week in Feminine Dress - Day One

For many years, I've been apart of the sewing forum over at Sense & Sensibility (though I've hardly been visiting it this year) and a couple times a year they have what is called "week in feminine dress" to encourage women to dress in a way that is befitting for ladies to wear. For many, that means putting away the jeans and faded tees for skirts and blouses. For others who are always in feminine dress, it's a good reminder (and a great way to get some new ideas!) for us to not just focus on outward beauty, but have "...the ornament of a meek and quiet spirit, which is in the sight of God of great price." 1 Peter 3:4

Having a Christ-like spirit of meekness and quietness is of far great importance to God than being perfectly put together. Some thoughts will be shared later this week in the area of adornment. My study of it has been fascinating!

After church this morning my brother wanted to be creative with the camera when I asked if he would take my picture for WIFD, and this is what he took. :)

Specs:

White eyelet collared blouse - Apt. 9 (free, from a lady at church)

Black Sandals - White House Black Market (thrifted)

(No, I'm not wearing a floral wreath on my head, in case it appears that way. ;) It's safetly attached to the house!)
