Hi, it’s Sherry, writing from my laptop. Do you have someone in your life you can ask for advice? You can bounce ideas off of your friends, but sometimes you need someone older and wiser that can help you. Older siblings and parents know you real well and can steer you in the right direction. But sometimes it’s fun to receive guidance from a neutral source.
In my girl’s book, there is an ‘Ask Kelsey’ section where girls can get advice about all things related to fashion and beauty, as well as godly wisdom. For example, here’s a question and answer taken directly from The Christian Girl’s Guide to Style:
Question: The other day, my mom told me to change my clothes. She didn’t like the way I was dressed. She said my skirt was too short and my T-shirt was too tight. I want to look like my friends. How am I going to have my own personal style if my mom won’t let me?
Answer: Do you really have your own personal style if you want to dress like your friends? Sometimes girls pressure each other into dressing alike to feel a part of the group. And sometimes friends want us to do things that we know our parents don’t agree with—like wearing short skirts and tight T-shirts. It’s best to sit down with your parents and talk about what is appropriate and what’s not. Your mom was a girl once and understands the pressures of fitting in. Maybe you can start a new trend: one that shows your unique style and your inward beauty.
Do you have a question for Kelsey? It can be about any topic—from beauty, and fashion, to friendship and faith. Feel free to ask it here in the comments section and I’ll make sure she answers you.
Have a GREAT day!
