Welcome to Fresh Modesty!

Fresh Modesty? What kind of name is that?

It means just what it says. Modesty. Fresh Modesty. Oftentimes once a Christian girl has her convictions on modesty, she falls into a rut about what to wear, or not to wear. Eventually we become frumpy, homeschooler-y, or even legalistic. Let's dash the stereotype that pops into one's mind when the words "modesty" or "homeschooler" are mentioned. The definition of modesty is not defined by the culture around us, but rather by the Word that He has given us for teaching, rebuking, correcting, and training in righteousness (2nd Timothy 3:16) so that we may live a life glorifying to Him and as an example of His awesome redeeming power to the unbelieving.

Practical particulars: With God's grace, I will be posting ideas to help you not fall into a rut when dressing. I have personally learned that it is very encouraging to even just see a few pictures of other girl's modest outfits for the ideas and ways to put things together. Let's be cute, but covered! Stylish, but sensible! Contemporary, but classic! Feminine, but fresh!

In a phrase, this blog is to encourage other young ladies who have given their lives to Christ to dress outside your box, but inside His Book!

To God be the Glory,


"Make sure when you get dressed in the morning that you look cute as a button and that Jesus would be proud of you."

  1. This is very nice Olivia,

    It's often been said through history that, "All great things are simple." A simple work like this and your other blogs may yield great results and transformations in some readers, more than you might ever know of. I hope this establishes a large following.

  2. Love your blog! I'm working on avoiding the frumpy life. I'm pushing 40 now and I'm almost clueless as to what to wear. Sad, but true.
