True Beauty Files: Nautical Print Mix + Brights

Mothers Day weekend was a rainy one, so our plans shifted to family time indoors. Did you get some time with your family? I was missing my mother, but felt so blessed to celebrate the day with my little ones. Little Gabriel helped make me a breakfast of "special pancakes." So precious. Gabe and I did get to have a night out at the symphony with some great company. If you visit Atlanta, you also must check out the Marietta Diner (featured on Food Network). The food is killer!

So as I told you in Friday's post, I went Auburn over the weekend. It was a mousse dye which clings to your natural color, and nothing too drastic occurred (thank heavens).  I actually love the results. Very close to my natural color, just with an auburn hue. Maybe I will go a little more bold next week;)

P.S. IHOD reached 2,000 facebook friends, so head over to check out today's celebration giveaway! You won't want to miss! Also, its the last day to enter the Deloom shopping spree giveaway!

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

  15. Sometimes I'm in awe of how beautiful you are. And you know what I realized? It's not just your outward beauty (which is, of course, stunning), it's more than that. You have that "God glow" about you. That "I'm loved by my heavenly Father" glow, and it's breathtaking. Keep on shining girl.

  30. How cute are you?! Love that dress. I am on a clothes buying moratorium because I am in the middle of a major diet and luckily I am dropping some serious weight so I don't want to waste any money buying clothes i the middle sizes. I might enlist you for some help when I get to my goal. Hope you are doing well!

  49. Hi! I love your DIYs! I've been having a hard time finding a necklace that would go with a striped tee I have, then I saw this necklace and fell in love. It's so simple and prefectly lovely. So I made a chain and teardrop necklace like your's, and I love it! I'm going to post it on my blog, with a link back to you, since you gave me the idea. Thanks!
