The True Beauty Files: A link up party for the Modern Modeste!

After much debate, consulting friends, readers (and you all came up with some fantastic ideas), and my very wise sisters, I finally decided to call this series...

THE TRUE BEAUTY FILES
A lookbook for the Modern Modeste
(title coined by the lovely Katie of NOLA, and tagline by the lovely Grace Hester)

I want this series to not just be a lookbook on modest fashion, but a parallel to interior beauty as well....as stated in my favorite Audrey quote below, "the true beauty of a woman is reflected in her soul." So my hope is that as each of you link up, we encourage each other that not only is modest hottest;), but that the way we dress as women can be a fantastic representation of our dignity, value, and self-worth. Are you with me?? 
{Dress: Francescas, Boots: Gift from Husband, Earrings: F21, Bracelets: c/o Poshlocket, Necklace worn as a Bracelet: BMB, Watch: Fossil (similar)}


Here are the simple requests:
~Link up your outfit posts that represent classy modest fashion. It can be from this past week or this coming week. (The link option will be open till next monday.)
~Add a button or link in your post that links back to this original post. 
(For those of you who already created your posts, no problem!)

Thank you for all the positive feedback and support on this! Can't wait to see what you style mavens come up with! Cheers!
fyi: Button subject to change...


 
 


"The beauty of a woman is not in the clothes she wears, the figure that she carries, or the way she combs her hair. The beauty of a woman is seen in her eyes, because that is the doorway to her heart, the place where love resides. True beauty in a woman is reflected in her soul. It's the caring that she lovingly gives, the passion that she shows & the beauty of a woman only grows with passing years." 
~ Audrey Hepburn

  31. Awesome! Can I link back my outfit laid on a flat background or is it only for shots of us wearing the actual outfit? I just ask Anna, because I usually do an outfit post but I post the pictures of the outfit (before wearing it)?

  32. I just LOVE you for this!! What an incredible and inspiring woman you are for taking a role in modest fashion! I feel like this world doesn't quite know what that means anymore, so I'm hoping this gives women around the world a guideline for showing their beauty, inside and out! (without having to reveal what should be kept private ;)

  33. ps..this is definitely going to take me out of my comfort zone by doing fashion posts all by myself!! I just love this wonderful community, though and how it teaches you to be comfortable in your own skin.
