I rarely talk about this but lately I've been trying to figure some things out and maybe it could help to talk to other Catholic women about it
For some reason, in the past little while, I've been feeling drawn to wearing skirts rather than trousers. I'm not here to debate the subject, but I thought about how women have always worn skirts until recently, and it's how Mother Mary dressed, and I read how St Padre Pio wished for the women in his church to be always dressed modestly but he didn't agree with them wearing trousers. He would even turn women away from Confession if they wore them, or if their skirts (or any other clothing) were immodest.
I've always worn jeans, so switching to skirts was difficult at first. Also my skirts are kind of longer than what girls my age typically wear (they're all longer than the knee, cover the knee when I'm sitting, etc) and sometimes I do get self conscious and feel like I stand out. All the girls around me wear jeans or leggings: I disagree with the leggings lol, what a strange fashion
Anyways.. I'm just wondering if there are any others like me. And how do you put this into practice in every day life? What if your job requires you to wear trousers, etc? I'm trying to find a job that doesn't really have a "uniform" so I can wear whatever I decide to. But I know that there are many jobs that are not like that.
Any thoughts? thanks
