What to Wear Now: Ultra-Feminine Tops

I get emails from Gap about once a week and this one intrigued me, so I opened the email thinking that maybe these tops are modest too. I'm trying to wear clothes that are more feminine then the general solid colored shirts and jeans look. I was told by an image consultant back in Atlanta that these clothes (solid shirt and jeans) are meant for boys/men and not for ladies.

So I open the email and found that the "ultra-feminine tops" are nothing more then an excuse to wear lingerie outside of the bedroom. What bothers me is this is now the acceptable apparel for most working women including those who my husband gets to work around. I couldn't ask for anything more than for my husband to be around lingerie-clad women all day, every day. For most women, their husbands spend the majority of their day at work rather than the home. So it is so comforting to know that the "what to wear now" is lingerie inspired, gag!!

The topic of modesty runs deep to my core, probably too deep in some instances. I have a hard time with women who choose to wear clothes that are "sexy". Does it occur to anyone [insert women] that the term sexy is good, even great for the bedroom but not so great outside of it?

I'll step down from my soap box now and let you decide "what to wear now".

The Greatest Thing Since Sliced Bread

Liberty Christine was born on Monday, July 7th!

Her entrance into the world...

Weight: 8 pounds 14 ounces
Length: 21 3/4 inches (We say 22 inches!)
Head: 14 inches

This Day in History
Today is Monday, July 7, the 189th day of 2008. There are 177 days left in the year.

Chocolate Day-Commemorating the introduction of chocolate in Europe in 1550.
In 1928 - Sliced bread is sold for the first time by the Chillicothe Baking Company of Chillicothe, Missouri. It is described as “the greatest forward step in the baking industry since bread was wrapped".
In 1930, construction began on Boulder Dam (later Hoover Dam).
In 1958, President Dwight D. Eisenhower signed the Alaska Statehood Act into United States law

We agree that Liberty is the greatest thing since sliced bread (90 years ago to the day). So far she has a delightful temperament and likes to eat, sleep and make messy diapers. We are so grateful for her smooth entrance into the world and know we were blessed because of your (family and friends) prayers and watchful care of our family. We are ever appreciative of your thoughts, prayers, words and deeds!

Hopefully more news to come!! The adrenalin is sure to wear off soon and then the zombie stage will hit! We like to refer to it as the "shock and awe" stage!

Thanks again!!
