My sun bonnet is off to my husband for his latest post on all this stuff.
I’d say that’s a pretty schmart fella ya got there… and i don’t blame you for doffing your sunbonnet. Not one single bit.
Thank you! What I would fail to put into words, your husband has done in his recent post without a single stutter. Not everyone is going to agree with you, but “…be of good cheer, I have overcome the world…”. You have my hearty, “Amen!” in your posts Mrs. Wilson, your husband’s, and your children’s.
Thank you for the link. I found this point particularly helpful:
“The Bible says that older women should teach younger women how to achieve … an effect we can sum up with the word respectable. Strikingly, it does not call upon the younger women to push the envelope until the older women finally say something critical about it. Again, the older women are to help the younger women try to achieve a modest respectability. The younger women are not called upon to demand the older women prove that something or other is not positively disreputable. According to the Bible, respectability is the goal. ”
That’s an excellent reminder when the whole culture is telling the older women to try their hardest to dress and act like 18-year-olds. Seeking fashion advice from your mother? Now that is countercultural!
I appreciated that post very much, but now I’m back here to beseech the good women of femina to post some tips on dressing attractively and respectably. I’m pretty much clueless, which is why my standard attire most days consists of t-shirt, jeans/skirt/capris, and chacos/keds (depending on whether or not I’m riding my bike). Any pointers (especially if they came with pictures and/or links) would be greatly appreciated.
Along with Natalie’s comment, how about Amoretti for the mama’s? 🙂
