The Letter ‘M’ // La Letra ‘M’

  • Note: all of the images in this post are found on Pinterest.com. My blogging policy is writing the source of any images I did not take at the top of the post. The overwhelming majority of all images on this blog are taken by the Salmo 63 editor, and a note appears (like right now) when this is not the case.*Note: the main cover image was taken in Rome, Italy in March 2016 by a Salmo 63 editor!

What does the letter ‘M’ immediately bring into your mind?

I’d like to share a goal: I’d like you to consider the importance of your mind turning first toward our Mother Mary (double M, in fact, and not the candy M&M this time!).

Then, there are other great M‘s to consider:

Marvelous fashion (all in beautiful, classy modest choices, no less):

There are a few really cute pieces of clothes I’ve cherished since before I even knew what applying modesty to my wardrobe meant, and they’ve snuggled their way into each of the closets I’ve had over these 3.5 years (and living in 10 different spaces in this span of time). I love their color, their V-neck, their buttons…but I hate their questionable amount of modesty…nothing TOO much, hence their existence in my closet…but not exactly SHOUTING a message of ‘I believe my worth is ONLY found ALWAYS in Christ’, either…which really just means there’s insecurity wrapped up in beautiful clothes and shorter hemlines.

I’m calling myself out on this, and I don’t do it without a call to action. I’m going to be giving clothes to charity because someone who’s younger and shorter can love these clothes and impress Christ all the while, and I hope that this spurs a bit of a celebration amongst us young women professionals to take on this challenge and start a sign of our belief that Christ fulfills us totally, with no insecurity showing in how we dress ourselves to encounter our days!

ALSO, I can’t stop a post about what styles I love if it doesn’t involve something quite blatantly floral in the real-deal, petals-and-perfume way:

…and if you tempt me with the topic of flowers, you know I have to add in a few magnificent models:

…so can we combine all this for the greater good of everyone?

Idea: hosting parties of MORE: swapping clothes that don’t fit us as they should, bringing sewing supplies for light repair of details in clothing, and really making a big deal of celebrating a gift for us women to enjoy: modesty. I’m up for it, just for the sake of my own closet!! Plus, if you’re going to have a party to better glorify God, it could get pretty lovely:

Plus, the most important part: ask each guest to commit to a rosary each day leading up to the party, so each guest can share the wisdom that Mary opened the path for each woman to grow closer to Christ…I’d bring a box of (rose-colored) tissues, just in case things get really touching! Faith does that to some of us, hehe, especially around those who God blesses us to know as our dearest friends.

I’ll keep you all updated as this event gets planned out, and thank you for reading.
