Modesty Reminder and Shabby Apple Giveaway!

Spring is here and I’d like to make a friendly modesty reminder.

Even though the weather is getting warmer let’s all make an effort to respect ourselves and our brothers in Christ by dressing modestly.

Your body is a beautiful thing made by our Creative God.  It’s nothing to be ashamed of but it is something precious that should be protected and saved.

Our highest call as Christians is to love God and Love others.  Let’s strive to do that by being careful to dress modestly.

“Jesus said unto him, Thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind. This is the first and great commandment. And the second is like unto it, Thou shalt love thy neighbor as thyself.”  -Matthew 22

  1. I love Shabby Apple!

  2. Camisole tank tops under just about everything! That way, even when I’m chasing my 3 year old and 8 month old around the park, I know I’m “covered” even when I bend over to pick them up.

  3. So cool! I would love to win. :-) Thanks for hosting the giveaway! :-)

    • I just noticed that I was supposed to leave a modesty tip…sorry for the separate comments!
      I think that one of the best ways to be modest, in a very practical way, is to layer shirts. I like to have rather high necklines, but layering with a tank top is still too low for me, mostly because of my body type and the fact that I’m really short. ;-) Soooo….I wear them backwards! This allows me to still get the “layered look” without having to alter my tank tops…most of which I have gotten for less than $2 at thrift stores. :-)

  4. I would LOVE something by Shabby Apple! I’ve enjoyed browsing their site for a while. What a great giveaway! :)

  5. Also, I wear camis/tank tops under practically everything. I have a whole drawerful of them!

  6. I think it’s really Like that you are talking. About modesty. I wear skirts that are long enough to cover most of my legs. My shirts are nothing sleeve less and high enough to not show cleavage.

  7. Amanda Austin says:

    I like to layer my shirts as well to make sure I’m fully covered up. Sometimes I even wear a light sweater or vest, just in case. I don’t wear anything too see-through either. It’s easy to dress modestly and still look cute! :)

  8. I love their dresses…so pretty.

  9. What a wonderful giveaway Ashley! Thank you so much for hosting it. I’ve never shopped from Shabby Apple but their clothes looks adorable!

    • The best modesty tip I can give is to make sure that the tops you’re wearing have a high enough neckline for bending over. Also if wearing pants, make sure they are not too tight.

  10. When wearing skirts remember to check how short it will be when sitting down as well as standing! I think the best thing to think about for all your clothes is just what kind of message you’re sending overall….if it is too eye-catching in any particular spots (especially cleavage, tightness, too short, etc) then it can possibly be a stumbling block for the men seeing you. Thanks for the giveaway! Love some of Shabby Apples clothing.

  11. My favorite modesty tip is layering! It even works in the summertime because you can simply keep your layers light. :)

    Thanks for this awesome giveaway!

  12. Laura Browne says:

    Never bought anything from them, cause I’m cheap :) But, this is a great giveaway!! Love it.

  13. look at the dress you are wearing in the sun or light to make sure its not to see through! slips are a lifesaver!

  14. Ashlyn H. says:

    I would love to win! I love that you can still wear cute clothes even when being modest!

  15. We test everything we try on in the dressing room first. Hands up, does your tummy show? Sit down, did the skirt go too high, or the back of the jeans go too low? Bend at the waist and reach for something, is the top still modest now? And then stand and turn sideways to make sure you can’t see through any gaps near the collar or between buttons…..If we still can’t decide, it’s time to ask Dad!

  16. Well, I agree with what most of the gals here have said. I don’t have many shirts with low necklines at all, and I don’t like layering because I’m more into 1940s fashion. Two of my rules are:

    1. If it frames your face and not your body, it is modest
    2. Your clothes should be tight enough to show you are a woman, and loose enough to show you are a lady.

    And, a third one that I read somewhere was, when you dress immodestly it’s like rolling around in mud– yes, you’ll get attention, but only from pigs! That’s not the kind of guy I want looking at me.

  17. Tank Tops are definitely my favorite way of staying modest, since they can look trendy, while they are keeping me covered!

  18. Rebecca says:

    I don’t think I can give a tip on modesty that someone has already said. But I really like reading some of Ashely’s older post’s on modesty, they give good ideas, and back me up on some of my own. Also, I love the new site!!! It makes it so easy to read older posts.

  19. I heard something once, you should wear a dress tight enough to show you’re a woman but loose enough so you look like a lady. I always loved that! I love half tees for modesty. Great for pregnant or nursing mamas too.

  20. After dressing, do a full body check in the mirror with a heart of not wanting to cause your “brothers” to stumble.

  21. I appreciate your stand for modesty! May the Lord bless you!

  22. I love Shabby Apple’s pink “Aloha” dress!

  23. I love Shabby Apple! I love that there is a store with such cute, modest clothes!

  24. My modesty tip: If you can see your panty line, it’s too tight.

  25. Charlotte Mickelinc says:

    It’s really easy to make almost any low-cut top modest by adding a high-cut tank top underneath. I usually opt for ones with lace at the top for a little extra femininity.

  26. Bloomers underneath too-short skirts! :) Cute and modest!

  27. The biggest thing for our family has already been mentioned several times… but I also like to make sure the skirt is a good enough length, so I don’t feel that when I bend over it won’t cover.

    Thanks for hosting this great giveaway!

    I love adding a vest or sweater to my dresses that don’t have sleeves. It not only provides me with the modesty I prefer, but also adds a nice fashion flair, too.
