“She is clothed in strength and dignity, she can laugh at the days to come.” Proverbs 31:25
I really didn’t intend for this week to be all about the Proverbs 31 Woman. I’ve never really taken the time to explain why I occasionally share What I Wore posts, and so I’m seizing the opportunity to share with you my purpose for WIW posts.
I’m not terribly stylish or fashionable. In fact, last week I had lunch at Chick-Fil-A and noticed that every single female between the ages of 16 and 25 was wearing a plaid flannel shirt. Thus I tweeted to those much more fashionable and stylish than me and found out that plaid flannel is in right now. And it’s not just because I live in the boondocks in Texas.
There are so many days that I want to stay in my pajamas all day. I give in to those wishes a little too often, I’m afraid. And then I read Proverbs 31:25 and see those words:
“strength and dignity”
and I can’t help but think that wearing pajamas all day is not being clothed in strength and dignity. For me it’s being clothed in comfort and laziness. And yet there are days that I succumb to the temptation and just grunge around in nothing special. Nothing dignified.
Linking up with the What I Wore community helps keep me accountable to get dressed. It reminds me that my ultimate desire is not to be the prettiest, the trendiest, or the stylish. But to be clothed in strength and dignity daily. This is why I share WIW posts.
I’ve been wanting to try dark read lipstick for a while and I finally took the plunge!

Please excuse the blurry cell phone pictures. My camera battery died this week, and I forgot to charge it.
Have a wonderful Wednesday! Don’t forget to be getting your Desire to Inspire posts ready for tomorrow!
Blogging Challenges Q & A with Danette Dillon
ARD: As a blogger, what is your biggest challenge for growing your community, and how do you deal with it?
DD: Rationalizing “real” life in comparison to blog life is difficult for me. It’s fair too easy to become obsessed with growing an online influence and forget about the day to day relationships that need nurturing. I’m working on that.
