Off-the-Shoulder Fashion Hacks

Happy Friday lovely readers and followers! I know, my fashion posts have not been consistent lately. I thought that since I’m on summer break, I would have more time to get blogging done. Well, life knows how to keep me busy. But I can’t complain because I have been able to spend some awesome time with my family and friends despite everything. I promise to make more of an effort in the future!

I think that Christian women tend to panic when the summer trends roll out. Crop tops, short-shorts, bikinis…oh my! I find that most trends can either be skipped or adapted no problem, and there’s one trend this season in particular that I want to discuss.

Off-the-Shoulder tops. 

(See more of my Polyvore collections)

I know this trend may be controversial to some Christians, as shoulders are seen as immodest by some. Just to be clear, I am not judging your beliefs in modesty here. If you have different convictions than me, that’s totally cool. If you want to know more about my views on modesty, check out this post.

That being said, I think that women who like to keep things modest can totally rock an off-the-shoulder top in a classy way. These blouses are feminine and keep you cool in warmer temperatures. They also highlight a very flattering (and appropriate) part of the body on any woman. I think that floral print tops in bohemian shapes are perfect for summer. Use dashes of the color red to make a statement as you rock this trend.

Still not sure how to rock this look? See below!

Tips For Wearing Off-the-Shoulder Tops

  • Make sure to try on the blouse to make sure it isn’t too low cut. Only you know what looks best on your body.
  • Choose a top with thick straps if you need extra coverage.
  • Make sure to wear a strapless bra to keep things classy.
  • Since you are highlighting your shoulders and arms more, create balance by wearing long pants or a longer skirt.
  • Ask yourself, does this outfit make me look like a royal daughter of God? If so, then go for it!

I hope that you found these tips helpful! There is no need to fear a cute summer wardrobe. With a little adaptation and discernment, you can look cute and still glorify God.

For you were bought at a price; therefore glorify God in your body and in your spirit, which are God’s. (1 Corinthians 6:20 NKJV)

I love getting these awards, as it shows just how strong the bonds are between writers in the blogging community. Though they may require effort, they are also a blast. So let’s get started!

Three Things About Myself

Colorful Jackets + Life Updates!

Happy Friday lovely readers and followers! Time for a (happy) medical update 🙂

The new medications I am on for my IBS are working! Finally, my digestive system is functioning more like a normal person. Now we just need to work on my blood pressure. Thank you so much for all of your prayers! I know I can feel all of your love and support.

Over the next two weeks I have guest bloggers lined up to take over for me. It’s finals time, so I’m swamped with work. I‘m also going down south for my brother’s wedding! It’s my first time being a bridesmaid, and I’m both nervous and excited.

Do you have any tips for a first time bridesmaid? It’s also my first time traveling by airplane, so if you have any advice, I will gladly take it!

Today’s collage is all about colorful (faux) leather jackets! Although in a lot of states it’s getting too cold for a lighter jacket, sometimes you just need to tough it out to make a fashion statement.

Many people think of leather/faux leather jackets only in the color black or tan. This season, play with pastels, burgundy, or even winter white! Details like zippers and buckles will add an edge to whatever color you choose.

I will call upon the Lord, who is worthy to be praised;
So shall I be saved from my enemies (Psalm 18:3 NKJV).

The Color of Fall~Burgundy

207419019

 

Hello lovely readers and followers! I know it’s not Friday, but I just felt like switching things up.  Life has been getting super busy with college right now, and I really am starting to feel the pressure.

God is so good though. I love the blogging community and all of the support I’ve been given. You are all awesome!

I’ve never been a huge fan of the color red, but this season things are different. I’m starting to really love read sweaters and jewelry. My favorite shade is burgundy because it is so versatile. It compliments any skin tone and hair color.

Burgundy is also the perfect color for fall. It’s slightly dark and pairs well with navy and brown–the hot neutrals of this season.

90’s Kid Plaid


207419438

Happy Friday lovely readers and followers! It’s starting to feel a lot like fall. I’m enjoying fresh apples and mild sunny weather. I also hope to visit a cider mill soon! When I think of fall fashion, three things come to my mind: faux leather jackets, scarves, and…flannel!

I love a good plaid flannel button down. When I was helping out at the youth group last week, I had a feeling that the youth pastor’s wife would be dressed in plaid flannel like me. I was right!

This is a trend that was super popular in the 90’s. Now you can channel your inner 90’s grunge kid with anything plaid–whether it be a flannel, a dress or skirt, or a scarf. Get creative with it!


Thanks for reading! What activity or fashion trend are you looking forward to this fall? Let me know in the comments below 🙂
