Dresses only week

I'm participating in wearing a week of dresses only challenge. I'm so excited about this! The goal is to blog about if we felt any different while wearing them this week. I'm so up for the challenge and I've been wanting to see for myself if I feel any more feminine wearing dresses/skirts. Here is my week in dress/skirts.

After wearing dresses/skirts only the entire week. I noticed I felt more feminine. I carried myself in a softer more elegant manner. I even sat and walked with grace at all times, being mindful that I was wearing a dress. It was something about it that reminded me of my feminine nature at all times. I did feel very gentle and modest as well. The Holy Spirit has really begun a work in me about being more feminine and modest for His sake. My husband even noticed and really liked how "sweet and lovely" he says I looked to him. So, if hubby is happy, then that just makes it all the more special. I will have to invest in more flowing dresses/skirts for the summer. Mainly because I really liked the way I felt in them and the way my husband looked at me in them as well. Even at work, my female co-workers were saying how they wanted to wear more dresses because I looked so elegant and lady-like. I was able to give them my testimony on how I never wore skirts and how God is changing me toward modesty. My children even commented on how pretty I looked everyday. My girls want to get in on the dresses only idea too. I will have to wear them more often since it's getting this kind of reaction from people. Maybe not all the time, but I definitely will incorporate them more in me and my girls wardrobe from now on. Thanks so much to The Faithful Fashionista and Feelin Feminine for hosting this 7 day challenge this week. It literally is changing lives and I am truly grateful for this experience. I also had so much fun!

I've been so inspired by the Holy Spirit to start a weekly meme called Feminine Friday. It is based on 1 Peter 3:3-5, which is a scripture based on the appearance of women. Once a week, we will link up with your pics or posts on modesty and being feminine.

Whose adorning let it not be that outward adorning of plaiting the hair, and of wearing of gold, or of putting on of apparel;
But let it be the hidden man of the heart, in that which is not corruptible, even the ornament of a meek and quiet spirit, which is in the sight of God of great price.
For after this manner in the old time the holy women also, who trusted in God, adorned themselves, being in subjection unto their own husbands:
1 Peter 3:3-5
