I don’t know what it is with Nigerian parents and the correlation between dressing and morals. Indeed, the famous saying goes “dress how you want to be addressed,” however, I strongly believe that if you are not dressed in a skimpy manner and all your parts are not out, you are good. I say this because my mum constantly reminds me that I am a Christian girl, and so I should dress like one. She made that statement particularly to this look. Like hello mum????
I was not quite sure what she meant when she made the statement, because
- I do not see anything wrong in this outfit. It is not exposing in any way at all. My boobs aren’t out in open and neither is anything that should not be seen.
- Are Christian girls not allowed to wear shorts?
- Does my clothing now determine whether or not I am a Christian. To the best of my knowledge, indeed modest dressing is key – but I had no idea that Christian women should dress a certain way.
- I was CONFUSED!!!!!
So let us discuss this, what do you think? My mum made the statement because to her my shorts were too short and my midriff was showing through my blouse. Regardless, I do not think it warranted the infusion of Christianity. I acknowledge I am a Christian through my thoughts and actions and I personally do not think I ever wear anything out of character.
That being said, this look is perfect for the Nigerian climate. It is comfortable, stylish and heat conducive. I particularly love the infusion of lace and leather together in the same look. Might I add that my trainers are suede, so it adds its own bit of edginess. Black and red are really a great combination.
