There are five girls in my family. Two are still young, nine and three. Three have entered the world of adulthood (physically, at least... we all have our Neverland moments... and days).
Jessie, Natalie, and I have quite unique personalities from each other and also differing tastes in clothes. So, how do three sisters express their own styles while still being modest?
Jessie has the most outgoing and bubbly personality of all of us. She wears bright colors, more daring designs. She expresses her joy with bright flowers or a fun print on her blouse. She shows how beautiful chunky sandals and short, sunny hair can be.
I just love how she brings out her own bright personality in her hairstyles and in her wardrobe.

Natalie, while still quite spunky, has a quieter nature when you're first getting to know her. She's one of those people that you don't realize just how awesomely crazy she is until you take the time to know her better. Her sweet side comes out in her clothing and hairstyle choices.
Natalie looks wonderful in light, soft, and earth-tone colors. She wears her hair a bit longer with soft, full layers. Soft ruffles and simple (yet striking) jewelry work very well for her style.
Here they are. Two sisters with very different personalities, yet so close that we call them "the twins". Don't they show their personalities beautifully through their clothes?
Something I've noticed throughout the years is how cookie-cutter people expect modest dressers to be. I believe that my sisters and I are living proof that you can dress modestly without looking like every other girl who dresses modestly. Creativity isn't lost when you cover up, it is unleashed!
One thing I've learned as I've grown and matured is that modesty isn't a restriction, it is a freedom. Instead of being tied down to trends (talk about girls looking like they're from a cookie-cutter!), I am free to dress in styles that compliment my body and my own taste. Instead of feeling guilty or less-than-valuable from flaunting my body for the world to see, I have dignity and worth in keeping myself a secret physically from all men except my husband.
It makes me so happy to see my beautiful sisters choosing to keep themselves modest and pure (inside and out).
Love you, Jess and Nat! You are the most incredible sisters and friends!
So, how do YOU bring out your personality while still being true to your convictions? Do you find it hard or is it fun?
