Dear Blue Jeans




     Dear Blue Jeans,

To be honest with you, I have nothing against you.

There is nothing in the Bible telling me that you are blatantly wrong; who am I to make up extra rules for myself that aren't truly of the Lord?

But... I won't be wearing you.


I hope you'll understand, but to be fair, I'm going to explain why not.

The Post About Swimwear



Hello there! Welcome to Modest on Purpose!

Recently a reader of ours asked us, via our Pinterest page, what we wear to swim in, and what we recommend for modest swimwear options. What a question!

To be brutally honest, most of us wear old culottes with either tshirts, or modest swim shirts that we were able to get at a discounted rate. Quite the fashion bloggers we are, eh? Haha! So.. we aren't going to elaborate on a blog post about what we swim in. We are, instead, going to elaborate on what we want to swim in! The swimwear we all wish we had. A kind of modest swimwear directory.

A Boat of Many Colors // by Kimberly



There’s always that one person, right? That one person who is overly needy for attention. That one person who is louder than everyone else. That one person who can have ten different personalities depending on whomever they’re currently standing next to. And, just for the record, I’m not at all thinking of just one person; there seems to be that one person everywhere I go.
Tell me I’m not the only one that’s seeing this.
Why do people fall into this? Is it a personality disorder? Just how they’re parents raised them? Maybe they’re compensating for insecurities rooted in childhood scars? Eh… maybe in select cases, but those aren’t even good excuses. You can probably predict what I’m going to say next.

It’s a heart issue.

Modest Monday // by Mykaela

Ready for spring in orange and flip flops!
Spring is really and truly upon us now!! Here in the northern U.S. it seems to come a little later than we'd like sometimes, but here it is. The only un-nice thing about spring though, is that the weather is always a little fickle. Warm, cool, cold, hot, warmish....all within one hour. ;) That's when I really love half or three quarter length sleeves because they are good for all temps.

Statement Shoes // by Kimberly


     I have this one friend that has really big feet. My feet are about normal-sized, but still a size and a half too small to share shoes with my mom or younger sister... bummer, right? So anyways, my friend-with-really-big-feet and I went shopping a few weeks back. She knows I'm pretty "plain jane" in the area of shoes- I have church shoes (both heels and flats), tennis shoes, flip flops, and boots (both dress and cowboy). What more could I possibly want or need?
