Summer Fashion

Posted by Michaela Bethel in Fashion. No Comments

18th July

If I’ve heard the saying once, then I have heard it a thousand times—modest is hottest! To me, those words have always been a little confidence booster as I wake up daily and put on clothes that don’t conform to the pattern of this world. However, when it comes to those scorching, heated, miserable summer months, dressing modest really is HOT! And by “hot”, I mean ninety degree camp rec-time temperatures.

If we are being straight-up honest with each other, I have to admit I sometimes look at my friends and the girls of this world, and I almost envy how more comfortable they look in their immodest clothing. All the while I’m over here sweating like Niagara Falls in my covered up temple.

Spring is right around the corner, which means out with the drab and in with the fab. There is nothing better than stepping out of your house one morning and physically smelling the change in the air. No longer is the outside bitter and cold from the winter months.

Two words—SKIRTS EVERYWHERE.

30th May

“One more pair of heels—just in case!” As I scrambled about my room, tossing one skirt after another into my suitcase, my mind frantically raced in a last minute preparation. In less than ten minutes, I would be heading up to the ole’ campgrounds where I would spend yet another week of my summer at church.

But this was not just any week of church camp; it was my last week. Having just graduated from high school and being an upcoming freshman in a local college, this would be my last year to grace the campgrounds as an official camper. I loaded my small amount of luggage (four very large suitcases and a duffle bag) into the trunk and clicked my seatbelt into place. As we drove, I began to think back to exactly what church camp has truly meant to … Read More »
