She Wears A Skirt- A Week In Skirts Pt. 1

A very recent picture of me at the Lady's church retreat this last week end. I am bent over because we were taking a group picture.

I have been really enjoying The Modest Mom blog for a bit now. She is hosting "She Wears A Skirt" series and this week she asked any gals to join in on "A Week In Skirts Link Up". Well this week went by fast and I didn't get pictures taken like I had hoped. So I am showing past pics of me living life in a skirt. And I hope later this week to get updated pics of me living in skirts now. [o=

I have been wearing skirts for just over 6 years. God moved my heart to dress more modestly in skirts because the sweet quiet spirit of Jackie Wellwood (in her books). I didn't have anyone around me modeling this life choice and it has been a journey of learning. Some skirts I wore in the beginning I now don't feel comfortable in. I am now finding my own personal style and I am trying to learn to sew my own skirts .

This is me gardening in the skirt that I did a tutorial on how to "modest'ize a slit skirt" . I almost didn't post this one but it does really show real life in a skirt. Yes, I am giving my son instructions on doing something in the garden, lol.

This was a few years ago harvesting the winter squash out of our garden.

And here I am on a family trip in the Greater Seattle area visiting my family. ( my sister is next to me, then my mom, and my oldest ds Philip. Noah is in the red t-shirt.) We went to the Seattle boat locks.

Here I am doing archery. I have to admit I wear looser skirts now but this still shows how you can do almost anything in a skirt.

I had this picture taken to show and tell my Shalom Cardigan that I knitted but you can have skirts match things just like you would jeans. It all works so nice.

I hope you come back and see Part 2. of me in "A Week In Skirts."


  1. Oh Mary...you look so lovely :-D

    And like you, I also wear skirts to do everything!

    They are just so much more comfortable than anything else. Especially on hot summer days when you need to be cool.

  2. Good for you, showing that modest skirts are feminine, flattering, and non restrictive. I don't wear them exclusively (though I did for years) but I still prefer them!

    Blessings, Debbie

  3. I forgot to mention that I just love the cardigan!


  4. These are such great photos, and such practical skirts for everyday life! Thank you so much for taking the time to link-up and share with us!

  5. I need to keep looking for skirts. I wear them a lot, but not every day. I do prefer them. I always feel more feminine. Your photos are lovely!

  6. Skirts are great! I used to wear them all the time, but have stopped for some reason. My daughters wear skirts everyday! Seattly is only a few hours away from where I live. It is a fun city to visit!

  7. Thank you for linking up @ The Modest Mom! I just love all your pictures! You look so sweet in the first one, I like the scarf a lot! It is so encouraging to see other ladies dressed modestly, and I think it is helpful to many just to see what it looks like. Thank you for sharing!

  8. This is great...I so enjoyed. Thanks for sharing...you look great in your skirt and you showed how much can be done in a skirt.

  9. I agree with the others that you not only look good in a skirt but show how easy it can be to wear one. If I think about it, woman managed very well for thousands of years without dressing in trousers to do it.

    I am going to take a look at that blog you mentioned.It sounds interesting.

  10. Lovely post! I just bought some new skirts after a long time looking for ankle length. Thanks for sharing :)

  11. Very nice pictures. I really like the first one, you look like you are really having fun. :)


  12. I adore ankle length skirts and dresses too!
    You look lovely!

  13. thanks, mary! i love the pics and am looking forward to part 2! :)

  14. Thank you for sharing! I've been following the link-up to see how women wear skirts differently :) I love how you have pictures of all sorts of activities, still do-able in skirts!

  15. Great pictures! I love you demonstrate that skirts can be worn for a variety of activities and seasons! Thanks for posting :-)

  16. I do pretty good at wearing skirts or dresses during the cooler months but the summer months find me running to some a little, *ahem* less modest. Living in Texas all my life and then moving to Oklahoma on top of being so hot natured anyhow, I would probably internally combust if I wore anything more than a tank top and shorts, modest shorts, but still shorts. It kind of weirds me out to see you wearing a sweater and scarf in that first picture... I broke out into a sweat just seeing it! You look very pretty though!

  17. Hi Mrs. G,

    Believe it or not it has been on the cool side here and the scarf is cotton and so is the sweater. We are not as warm as you are down there. [o=

    Thanks for stopping by!

  18. Love your week in skirts, Mary! I think the only thing you can't do in a skirt are skydiving... Like I'm going to do that anytime soon! :)

    Thanks for the encouragement to be modest in my clothing all year long!


  19. Oh, I just love how you are showing an active lifestyle in skirts. I've only been wearing skirts for two years, but I notice that some skirts I wore in the beginning, I feel immodest in now. It's an interesting journey.

    It's fun to see others who have been following the series.


  20. Yeehaw! That's me gardening in a skirt, too! Who needs pants anyway? Blessings! ~Lisa

  21. I know it isn't a skirt, but the cardigan is absolutely stunning! And you are right, finding your own style is so important. So glad you joined us!


Thank you, each sweet comment brightens my day. Blessings!
