It seems as if nowadays women leave nothing for the imagination anymore. Scrolling through my Instagram feed, I’ve probably never felt more insecure. Not necessarily about my own body (okay, yes maybe about my own body) but I even almost question my own character. There is so much pressure to be perfect nowadays especially with this selfie phenomenon. Everything about your appearance has to be to the “T!” Anyone else absolutely hate it?!
Before bed, with my phone glued to my nose I’ve seen countless midriffs, cleavages, and women simply wearing outfits that look like they are from the kids section. They look amazing! Don’t get me wrong…but shouldn’t our outfits, yes, show that we are a woman, but still cover enough to show we are a lady?
Sometimes I feel so much pressure to post maybe something a teeny bit provocative just to get the attention that I want, but then I always feel a pull in my stomach and push in my heart holding me back. I know its God. I’m so grateful to have been raised the way I was. There is a high standard that women should have for themselves to choose to carry themselves with elegance and grace. It’s humbling and comforting to know that I’ve chosen that. The most beautiful women out there are the ones with a strong mind and a sense of mystery.
For any of you ladies out there that feel the same way, please remember, that classy is when a woman has everything to flaunt, but chooses not to show it.
