True Beauty Files: Did you say Electric Purple?

{Dress: Tulle, Cardi: Target, Nude Pumps: Jessica Simpson, Necklace: c/o LYLIF, Cuffs: c/o LYLIF, Francesca's, Rings: H&M, Skinny Belt: F21, Clutch: DIY here}

Well the week didn't get off to the best start. Was truck down by the flu yesterday as well as my little guy. After last week, we are really ready for our normal schedule. However, we were blessed with a beautiful weekend, so I am grateful for that. How was yours?

Style Word: Continuing the theme of working with what you have I pulled out a few things in the same shade of vibrant purple and decided they would look much better together. I almost bought a dress over the weekend this color and thankfully took a second look in my closet first. Try wearing your dress as a skirt! 

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

  3. Hey Anna! I hope y'all are on the mend...so not fun.

    Great purple look...I don't have any purple in my wardrobe (at all), but I might now try it out seeing how well you pull it off. It definitely suits your coloring.

    Get feeling better and take care!
