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.

This particular Halftee is their "Boyfriend" style. The sleeves are around a third of the way from shoulder to elbow, at least on me.

One cool thing about the tees is that you can wear them front to back, or vice versa for a higher or lower neckline. So if you've got a sleeveless dress with a nice high neckline, but you want to add sleeves, you could go for the lower neckline. With this dress I like the neck to be a little higher, so I wore it turned around. There are no tags, and it's just as totally comfortable both ways.

It is really nice not to have bunchy fabric under my dresses/shirts, plus it takes away from the heat factor! Win-win!!

Outfit details:
Dress - $9 from Walmart
Halftee - available for $19.99 here at

Super exciting news, though!!

Now through June 13th, you can shop at Halftee, and get 20% off your entire purchase (not including sale items) by using our, limited-edition, Modest-on-Purpose-readers-only, discount code!! Here it is:


Also, I was just over exploring Halftee yesterday, and I ran across their Clearance bin. And oh my goodness. This tee is on sale for only $8.50!! What?! That's an amazing price for such a useful and high quality product!! I mean, I know the norm is to safety pin regular undershirts up for modesty and layering, but those aren't any cheaper than these, AND these require ZERO SAFETY PINS. Why are you still here?! Go get a Halftee!!

(I, Kimberly, who does all of the editing around here, am just piping in to say that I am soooo going over there to get one of those!! Mykaela has sold me on them!! And I've been needing a new layering shirt anyways!!)

What are your go-to layering pieces/tips? We'd love to hear from you! I hope you all have a lovely week!
