Introduction to The Modest Budget! (A New Direction for Fashion Blogging)

   In my time away from my beloved Style{in} Skirts, as you may have noticed, my life has transitioned from focusing on skirts as a fashionable expression of modesty to finding the same balance with pants. Last spring, after 10 years, I began the process!
   One of many reasons I had originally chosen to wear skirts was because it cut out a lot of gray areas with modesty. Skirts gave me boundaries and definition to what I would and wouldn't wear. And anyone who knows me knows that I can't stand gray areas. They drive me nuts.

   But you can't always avoid gray areas!
   So, after much prayer, welcome to my NEW journey of finding a modest way to wear pants!!
   (if you want to learn more about why I think modesty is important, go here!).

   Since my goals include less skirt-wearing, I thought it might be time to shift from Style{in} Skirts to a new outlook.
   The Modest Budget?
   I think we'll stick with that one for now.
   So, introducing, the Modest Budget! My goals will involve modesty and fashion on a budget (if that wasn't already obvious).
   Style{in} Skirts was an awesome time for me, and if you go to my Fashion Page I still have all the links up for every post! Still have much love for skirts, and my passion for modesty has not changed, but Cattails, Rabbit Trails and Thistlefish is growing with me.
