July 4th Fashion

by Jen on June 17, 2008

It’s hot, and you want to have fun in the sun while staying modest!

I thought it would be fun to do an Independence Day themed fashion shoot, because although our readers don’t all live in the USA, most do. I think it’s good to have patriotism for the country that you call home. Here in the US, it has become somewhat unpopular to be patriotic. It seems more popular to be jaded and critical about the government. And while I don’t agree with everything that goes on in government, I still think my country is a great place to live. There are reasons why so many people each year want to leave their home countries and move to the US. We can all do our part to make our country what we want it to be, so I want to remind everyone to vote and make your voice heard whenever you get the chance!  -Jen

Great pictures!
I appreciate your magazine and your good example. This is very important that girls dress modestly. I’m glad you help girls, my daughter included, find cute modest fashions.
As a high school teacher, I have seen time and time again, that the girls who are most popular with the guys are usually dressed cute and modest. Other girls get attention, but the girls who are modest get a lot more attention, and it is for who really are, not their bodies only.

I adore your site! Thanks for the tip off on Eliza magazine. I got my first copy a few weeks ago and it is so fun! Great photo shoot!

Love most of this, and the photography is gorgeous! Color is wonderful. But I am wondering about the backwards vest…

I like these pictures. My favorite outfits would have to be the first two. I was reading the comments below about the Eliza magazine… the girl who does that is in my cousins ward, and she was in one of the magazines.

Yeah, I am not sure about the backwards vest…. smile. Also, not sure about the length of the skirts, they should cover the knee or at least be on the knee – not 3 inches above – wearing modest length skirts will mean you dont have to change your clothes when you go to the temple.

Tese are so fabulous! I thought putting on a tee that said USA, jeans, and wild beads and earrings was patriotic! This is a hole new level. I would definetly wear something from either of those pics, 4th of july or not. My fave is the one with the bubble skirt 🙂
The photography rocks too! You have inspired to try something like yours this friday. Wish me luck!
