rennie: purple tunic - thrift, black leggings - khols, black robeez shoes - amazon.com
simplicity makes me happy. now that i'm being more picky about what i keep in my closet, it's important for me to have interchangeable items. enter basic and neutral items to make my choices so-very easy!
i recently picked up this tunic and really have enjoyed wearing it so far. it is very soft, lightweight, and even has pockets! i like that i can wear my solid jeggings with it but also have fun with a patterned pair in the future.
this brings me to an interesting subject: jeggings/leggings! it is a much-debated subject in the modesty community and for a long time i've just avoided the subject (and wearing them) altogether. but more recently i've been thinking on it along with asking my husband very particular questions about modesty. i've come to the conclusion with his input and taking my own convictions into consideration that i still feel modest while wearing jeggings/leggings as long as certain criteria are met. and it's actually quite simple:
if my shirt/tunic comes past my rear/hip/upper-thigh, i feel quite covered and modest.
one fashion inspiration to me is molly from "still being molly". she's a young mom, a christian, and a fashion blogger. while our styles differ slightly, she is never anything but adorably classy, modest, and lovely! she has many outfits wearing leggings in what i feel to be a perfectly modest way (examples here, here, and here).
do you have certain basic items in your closet the always come in handy?
what are your thoughts of jeggings/leggings? how do you like to wear them?
