A challenge

A young lady that I know is doing a challenge for girls. I will be doing it and posting about it at the end of the week.

Here's what she wrote on her blog
The Challenge: to wear only skirts/dresses for an entire week (7 days.) Post some pictures on your blog and show us some of your outfits. If you don't have exactly 7 different skirts, that's o.k. Mix and match with your shirts. If you'd like, post every day of your challenge week and show us what you wore like the other ladies in the links above did. (I am hoping to do so.) And be creative! You can easily be modest and fashionable at the same time. Being modest and feminine doesn't mean wearing a skirt that covers your toes and a shirt that comes all the way up to your neck, and has dull colors. No! You can be modest, feminine, lovely, beautiful and stylish all at the same time! So, be creative! Throw in some accessories. Put on a hat if you want; Dress up with some jewelry or earrings, fix your hair in a lovely do. Show us how you can look modest and feminine, yet with some added style.

For those who already wear skirts everyday:

If you already wear skirts regularly, please participate anyway! This is for all females. Show us how you mix and match your clothes, what type of fabric skirts you like best (blue jean, cotton, etc.), your favorite skirts and outfits, etc. We'd love to hear about it!

For an extra challenge:

-Venture out in your attempts to be fearlessly feminine!
-Fix your hair a different way each day of the challenge week. Must not be the same in all 7 days (that means 7 different hair-styles). Be creative and try new hair dos :-) Take a picture and show us.
-Wear a different pair of earrings if you have pierced ears, each day, or if you don't, a different piece of accessory.
-Show us pictures of daily activities of you in your skirts

The Goal of the challenge:

Venturing out for one week to be fearlessly feminine in the way you dress
-Experiencing a week of skirts/dresses and comparing it to your regular ways of dress and style
-Evaluating yourself at the end of the week and comparing it to your regular way of dress: how was the experience for you? Any particular stories? Did wearing skirts rather than pants affect the way you felt? The way you felt about yourself? The way you acted? The way you carried yourself? Were you able to go about everyday activity as freely as pants? How did people respond? Were you more respected? Did you feel more like a lady? After the challenge do you desire to keep wearing skirts more regularly, or were you desperate to wear pants again? ETC.
-Sharing with other girls your outfits and give ideas of mixing and matching
-Showing how beautiful female femininity actually is

So, to recap if you want to do the challenge with us:

-Wear a skirt everyday for 7 days starting at the beginning of the week (I am starting Monday, but you can start whenever)
-Post a picture each day and show us what you wore and if you want to venture out, how you did your hair, and any other creative things you did or accessories you used to be fashionable
-At the end, share with us how it went. Answer some questions from above like: Did wearing skirts than pants affect the way you felt? The way you acted? The way you carried yourself? Share with us about the experience.

Show the world how you can be
Fearlessly Feminine and Female!
