Embracing Modesty During the Swimming Season

image

It’s that time of year again when tons of pics are coming out on social media displaying everybody’s latest swim suits. Stores are displaying their latest bikinis and one pieces. As fun as it is when summer hits, there’s always a side to it that can be really challenging if you’re not prepared… and that is dressing modestly.

I’m going to be really honest for a minute. It can be hard to dress modestly when swimming, especially when no one else is embracing modesty, but, when you know the reason why you’re doing it, all the hard work is totally worth it. You’re here to impress One person with your bathing suit. Modesty needs to be embraced in the swimming season. I would highly recommend you check out this post here about embracing modesty in the swimming season.

The good news is, that dressing modestly and being stylish totally go hand in hand. I want to share with you exactly what I wear when it comes to bathing suits. I honestly view modesty in the water just like I do when I’m out of the water. My standards don’t change at all when I step into the water. When I go swimming, I wear long board shorts and a modest swim shirt. I get most of my swimming clothes from Dicks Sporting Goods and REI. I really like THESE specific shorts from Dicks.  Most pieces I buy are a little more pricey because it’s hard to find something cute and modest for swimming at some of the regular department stores. I also really like THIS adorable swim shirt from REI.

Adorable Neck Scarf

imageI’m super happy for all the amazing responses I got since launching “Hello Modesty” last week. The encouraging comments and messages were amazing! You girl’s rock! I love getting to see God work through fashion.

How cool!image

This week’s outfit is fun and creative. I’ve been seeing neck scarves every time I get on Pinterest or Instagram. They’re so cute and girly. They add a really creative touch to any outfit. You can totally dress it up or make it casual. This adorable red scarf actually came from Austria. My mom was over there last year with our full-blooded Austrian Nana, who is actually six feet tall… I guess that’s where we all get our height. Haha.

There’s one thing I hate in the summer… being too hot to wear cute layers. Haha. Instead of ditching certain styles because they are too hot for the summer, I try to be creative with them. I’ve found that sleeveless shirts make the perfect combo with sweaters. They make
your outfit cool and modest. This specific denim shirt, from Forever 21, is sleeveless, so it’s perfect with sweaters and neck scarves. They have never-ending options.

So, I’m actually trying out a new style with my hair. I usually part it deep to the left, but I’m parted it more towards the middle. I got some layers on the sides to frame my face a little. It’s so fun mixing up hairstyles for the summer!
