The Challenge – Day 5

Seven Days in a Dress. It’s never too late to begin your own Challenge!

It was chilly, I tell ya! But bright sun causing squints, sorry…

Jewel wears sporty pigtails with her blue skirt, and a black long-sleeved t-shirt under a colorful fleecy pullover. Black tight and her black dressy shoes round out the ensemble. We typically save these shoes for dressy occasions, but Jewel wanted to match with the tights and look good for 4H, so we went with it.

Tiffany has on a black/grey/white striped “cargo” skirt – not my favorite, but good for variety. I found a black tank top to wear under this black sweater, the very one I wasn’t able to wear last Sunday because I felt the weave was too loose to be modest. The accessories are a white head covering, black tights, and my white “Keds” sneakers (these are pretty beat up, and I’m trying to decide if they are a good thing or not worth replacing).

So, how are you feeling? We’ve come most of the way through a week already… Was it harder or easier than you thought?

    I am a huge fan of the tank top as an undershirt. I have the same problems with certain tops that I like that fall on the edge of modesty. My problem is if the top is a v neck or even some of the trendy shirts that are pretty but the neckline is just too low, the tank doesn’t come up high enough. I found “Cami Secret”, they are pretty little modesty panels that attach to your bra and covers your exposed chest. Since they are not full tanks they wouldn’t solve your sweater problem but they are perfect for covering when the shirt neckline is a bit too low. I have even thought about making some. They are also good with nursing mothers. They can be used under a button down shirt for coverage while nursing.
    I didn’t do the challenge this time but I do plan on trying it.
    You are an inspiration to us all and a person that other women can look up to. Keep up the good work! I know God is pleased!
