The True Beauty Files:
A lookbook for the modern modeste.
"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

  25. I'm really pleased I found this series today. Sometimes I look at outfit posts around the blog world and just think they're so far off my lifestyle +/ budget. Can make you feel a bit rubbish sometimes.. . .

    This is great. As a busy mum I have to go with what's comfy (and actually been washed! ha)

    Have clicked all the links so far. Great to see all these ladies just looking lovely. Great inspiration.

  26. you know to me, true beauty is seen with "in the moment" eyes. meaning that it's almost a childlike innocence and wonder; like viewing something for the 1st time and having it leave a lasting impression. true beauty touches all the senses, most especially the deep truth that we are all one. Anna, one of the reasons i adore you and your blog space so much is because there is a feeling here. like when you walk into someones home and it immediately feels good, warm, supportive.

    i'll be looking forward to these discussions on this topic and seeing what the day brings. it's a fab idea for a featured topic. sneak peek of this giveaway has me excited too, you look really wonderful sporting this "worthy of note" wooly! xo ♥
