Just dropping a line to let you know that I (Kimberly) am in the process of re-designing Modest on Purpose!!

Modest Monday // by Mykaela (+ Halftee discount code!)

Happy Monday, ladies! I hope all of you had a fantastic weekend! This has been an extremely exciting week for me, because I've confirmed plans to visit Kimberly in August, Lord willing!!!!! AAAHH! So very thrilled about that! 

Anyway, for today's Modest Monday post, I'm doing a review on a wonderful wardrobe addition, Halftee! I'm sure some of you have heard of this company...they sell shirts meant specifically for layering. (Thus the name. ;) I was a little skeptical at first...I mean, a half shirt? Wouldn't it feel weird under your clothes or something? Well, from my experience, no! I got brown as a nice neutral option for my first time trying it.

Meet Elizabeth: An Interview

Good afternoon, world!!

Happy May! Apologies for the absence in writing! I (Kimberly) was out of the country for a few weeks there, and it took me just as many weeks to get back to business (or at least it felt like it!).

Well, did you know that blogging is kind of hard? Not really hard. Not like starving in a ditch in Africa. Don't take me like that. Life isn't all misery for us bloggers. But, it's difficult.

There are thousands of blogs out there for you to explore- what are the chances of us catching your eye?! And if we are so fortunate, what can we write on? To inspire you? To encourage you? Um. I don't know.

But, while talking to Elizabeth a couple of weeks ago, I realized what an inspiring and encouraging person she is, and I thought, 'why not just tell the world about Elizabeth and her life, if we're to inspire and encourage?!' And that, my dear readers is how this post was born.

Modest Monday // by Elizabeth

Okay y'all, I'm WAY behind on the midi skirt trend! (lol!) I have seen pictures and outfits all over Pinterest and Instagram, and have thought that they were SO cute on everyone else, but wasn't sure that it would look good on me. Then I was in Walmart a few weeks ago, and this skirt caught my eye! It was cute, and it wasn't too expensive, so I really wanted to get it, but I had no idea what I would wear it with or if I even would wear it at all. But I decided to go out on a limb and get it anyways. ;)

I asked a few other ladies what they thought and also looked up some ideas on Pinterest. A few days later, I found this shirt at the Goodwill, and tried them on together, and I was SOLD! Seriously, this is THE most comfortable skirt ever, and this outfit is WAY easier than it looks. I love how feminine I feel every time I put this skirt on! I added this necklace for a pop of color, and I think it compliments it well :) And you can't see in the picture, but I am wearing some dressier black sandals with it. I also think black flats look great with it!
