I love wearing skirts on a warm summer day! There's just something about wearing a light, flowey skirt when the weather is warm, and actually I think a skirt is more comfortable than any type of shorts or capris.
But when the weather is cold you'll find me in my jeans or pants, usually with a pair of long john's underneath, as is the case right now. I am cold by nature. What I usually wear to bed is a pair of pajama pants and a long sleeved shirt, that's just how I am.
Recently though, the Lord has been doing a work in my heart, as far as my wardrobe is concerned. I'm not sure why it's been in my head to start wearing skirts more often. There's not been any big changes in my life to make me want to wear skirts more, I didn't just start going to a new church that preaches strongly on just skirts/dresses, my husband hasn't mentioned anything to me about my wardrobe either. So the only thing I can think of, is that it's the Lord who's been making a change in my heart.
I'm not opposed to just skirts or dresses, but it is something that is a bit of a struggle for me, because like I said, when I'm cold a skirt just doesn't seem to keep me warm enough.
I am drawn to the idea of wearing skirts more often because I do believe that if our walk with the Lord is where it should be, then it will show in the way we dress. I want to give God my best because He gave me His best in His Son, Jesus Christ. I want to look nice for God, whether it's on a Sunday or any other day. I also want to look nice for my husband, it's a sign of respect for our husbands if we make ourselves pretty and attractive on the outside. Now, don't get me wrong I know what 1 Peter says, that a meek and quiet spirit is of great price in the sight of God, more important than our outward adorning. And if we are thinking more about our clothes than we are about God then there is something wrong. But like I said, our appearance can be evidence to how our walk is going. I suppose that is why I'm on this quest, if you will, regarding my wardrobe. I want to give God my best in everything, and that includes the way I dress, and lately it just doesn't seem that a t-shirt and jeans is the best I can give.
In this quest I've begun I will be searching the scriptures in regards to a women's appearance and wardrobe, I'll be praying and asking the Lord to reveal His plan for me, I will also be looking into what other women do to keep warm in skirts, I'd also like to start "practicing" wearing skirts more often- setting aside another day or two of just skirts, and I'll be looking into how I can still look pretty and fashionable and not frumpy while wearing skirts.
