Hi friends!! This weeks post is a little different than normal. I’ve never done any type of fashion post or anything on modesty, so it was a little weird but also a little fun going out and getting pictures of myself (so don’t mind my awkward posing!! I’m still new at this!) I also had to do some thinking about what this meant for me, as I used to share much more of my fitness journey on Instagram for you all, I have been reflecting on it.
Being a modest woman is so important in our walk/journey as a Christian young lady. Modesty goes farther than the clothing that we wear, it’s also our actions towards others, the way we speak, the way we pursue God and much more! In today’s post we are only going to be talking about our clothing though, our workout clothing in specific! If you know me, and you don’t even have to know me well, you know that I love working out! Not because I want to look a certain way, but because I love and value my God given body.
With all that being said today’s post is a collab with my new sweet friend Faith! I met her on Instagram about a month ago, I believe and she is truly an ah-mazing human being.
Let’s get into it..
As I was looking for some cute workout outfits for these pictures, I realized that I haven’t gone shopping for new workout stuff in a while haha. So maybe I’ll reward myself with some new stuff soon lol.
These leggings are my go to leggings, epescially during spring when it is still kind of chilly out, because they have fleece on the inside!! Comment down below if you love fleece leggings too! My leggings are from Target of course and they were totally worth the investment, cause they’ve lasted almost three years!! The rest of this outfit is thrifted!! This girl loves a deal! Haha!
The first tip is to make sure that your clothing is not see through! It can be a total hassle to try on clothing in the store, but it’s best to do! A total freak accident could happen where you’re at the gym, doing squats and your booty is showing!?!?! Crazy, I know, but it could definitely happen!
The second tip is to make sure that you feel good in whatever you are wearing! I believe that if you look good you feel good! It is always a mood booster for me to put on a outfit that I am comfortable and cute in! The colors we wear also have an affect on our mood, which is why I am wearing a bright shirt in the outfit to the left!!
The last tip is to make sure that your clothing fits well!! The last picture is an example of what we should not wear to workout, I mean, unless you’re working out in your room. It’s important that our butts are covered and no one could easily see anything that they shouldn’t. Our future husband (or wife, if you’re a guy reading this), is the only person who should see all the good parts of us haha!
What does the Bible say about modesty?
“Or do you not know that your body is a temple of the Holy Spirit within you, whom you have from God? You are not your own, for you were bought with a price. So glorify God in your body.” 1 Corinthians 6:19-20
Out of respect to our great God we should not walk around in clothing that doesn’t reflect his love for us. What I mean by love is the fact that we are his creation and a masterpiece, a temple, truly. We are a divine creation, so why would we wear clothing that does not show this. I’m not saying wear glamourous jewelry everyday, but simply looking like as if a good good father created you and you are thankful about it.
This post was definitely different than normal, so let me know what you think down below!! I hope you have a happy Sunday!
