True Beauty Files: Aztec


{Dress: Dress Up Boutique (similar), Necklaces: Macaroy Kangaroo, Made by me, Sandals: Dress Up Boutique, Double Belt: H&M, Bracelet: c/o Loren Hope, Watch: DIY, Sunnies: Urban Outfitters}

I survived the weekend with my husband out of town for three days. We hadn't been apart that long in a loooong time. I have such respect for single mothers and army wives. I am a whimp when it comes to life without him. How was your weekend?

P.S. Come back tomorrow for a very fun 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
