April Showers

My younger sister, Noelle, wanted to do a guest post on the blog, and we planned out a modest fashion shoot. 

Here is a Q and A with Noelle on modesty. (She is 9 years of age.)

Q: How would you define modesty?

Noelle: Modesty is when you wear clothing that isn't revealing.

Q: Do you think modesty should be a part of a Christian's life? Why or why not?

Noelle: Yes, because God says in the Bible to cover up.

Q: How can young ladies like you dress modestly, yet tastefully?

Noelle: They can wear colors they like, but have a modest cut to them. Also, scarves are very pretty and they help to conceal the chest.

Q: Who taught you to dress modestly?

Noelle: My mother and my older sister.

Q: How would you describe the way you personally dress in three words?

Noelle: Modest, colorful, and comfortable.

Q: Who do you look up to as role-models of modesty?

Noelle: Well, my family of course, but I also look up to my aunt, Ruth, and my cousin, Rachelle.

Q: What is your favorite Bible verse about modesty?

Noelle: 1 Timothy 2:9-10

...likewise also that women should adorn themselves in respectable apparel, with modesty and self-control, not with braided hair and gold or pearls or costly attire,but with what is proper for women who profess godliness — with good works.

Q: Any final advice for our readers?

Noelle: Try to dress modestly - it pleases God!

That's that for the Q and A! 

 It was actually drizzling quite a bit when we took these photos, so they were a tad rushed. Forgive the photography! I'm still learning, and I was trying not to get the lens wet. 

About the outfit:

Shirt: Gift
Sweater: Gift (tag - Merona)
Skirt: Marshalls
Tights: Ukrainian market :)
Boots: Marshalls
Umbrella: Esprit
Hair Tie: DIY

 I sincerely hope you enjoyed this type of post. I've never done a fashion one before! 

 Have a blessed Easter - Christ is risen, He is risen indeed!




  1. The photography was great! Much better than I could do. I love the northwest feel though out the post : ) You two are doing so well with this.

    1. Thank you so much for the comment, Auntie Ruthie! It's very encouraging. :)

  2. What a lovely post! The photos are gorgeous, and so is Noelle. :) I love that even at a young age she is inspired to dress modestly. Awww, thanks so much! I think about how I am a role model for her. Keep up the wonderful posts! And I will make time for designing your blog when I may have to be after my play performances. Sorry that it's taking me so long!
    Love you girls!

    1. Oh, hello there, Rachelle! Thanks, we worked late into the night on this post... (oops) Your designing skills are amazing! I'm in no rush. :) Miss you!

  3. Naomi, you did a fantabulous job. You inspire me!

    1. Thank you so much, Mrs. Edwards! The feedback is appreciated. :)

  4. Hi Naomi!
    This Bree, from Cover Up for Christ. I stumbled upon your blog today and just wanted to say that your photography is beautiful!! You do a great job! May I ask what camera you use? I have been reading through some of your previous posts as well, it is so neat that you have lived in Ukraine most of your life! Were you anywhere near Zhitomir? I love Ukraine! I have many dear friends there, but have yet to visit! I am currently trying to teach myself Russian, do you speak Russian or Ukrainian?

    Have a blessed evening,

    1. Hello, Bree! So good to hear from you. :)
      Thanks so much, we worked hard on this post. The camera is (I think) a Sony Nex-3. :) Hope that helps!
      My dad has been through Zhitomir, but I haven't. We live in Odessa - do you know where that is? I love Ukraine, too! I speak both Russian and Ukrainian. :)
