On the blog today, Megan is sharing a little bit about dignity & modesty and then showing how it's done! I've been admiring Megan's What I Wore Sunday posts for a while now. The photography is beautiful, she's so darn fashionable, and she exudes so much joy. If you haven't yet encountered her blog, Purity of Heart, you are surely missing out.
My passion in life is bring back the dignity of women in today’s society by emphasizing their self-worth, beauty, and purity. Today I am going to be touching on beauty. As women, we all long to be beautiful, but we must realize that beauty and modesty go hand in hand. I cringe every time I am out and about in San Diego, and see women wearing something way too low, or way too short. People’s attention is automatically drawn directly to that body part on display. Instead of seeing all of you, they see a body part. What a waste of the beauty God created in you.
When people see me, I want them to see all of me. I want them to think that I am beautiful, not “sexy” or “hot.” It doesn’t take a lot of effort to be “sexy” or “hot.” Anyone can dress scantily clad and get some attention, but what is that attention worth if it is not immediately followed by respect. If we as woman desire to have dignity, we must dress in a dignified way. It is a myth that modest dress cannot be fashionable. Trust me I LOVE fashion, and it is very possible to dress in-style, but modest at the same time.
A trend that has been around for a while is the Chambray shirts. I love them! You can dress them up or make them causal. Plus they are modest! Here are 3 different looks with the Chambray shirt that are dressing with the trends without compromising your dignity.

"When a woman veils her body with modest clothing, she is not hiding herself from men. On the contrary, she is revealing her dignity to them." -Jason Evert
