True Beauty Files: Olive, White, and a Touch of Bright


{Top: c/o Ruche, Jeans: RL (similar here or here), Sweater tank: H&M, Necklace: c/o Across the Pond, Earrings: Stitched + Adorned (10% off sitewide with code IHOD10), Sandals: Dress Up Boutique (similar), Tote & Belt: H&M}

So I totally dropped the ball with Saturday's Real Chat post. Reason? Plum forgot to post it. I had a great one ready to go too! I have to get into the habit of posting on Saturdays, and I apologize for the miscommunication! Promise I won't forget this week! 

Highlights of the busy weekend: 
Date night that included real good southern food. Skee ball and arcade games followed (we thrive off competition).
Witnessing a friend's beautiful baby be baptized and celebrating with good friends.
Veronica took her first steps (I think she knows she turned one)!
Antique market hunting. One of my finds here.
Sunday night grilling. Just the four of us.
How was your weekend?

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
