True Beauty Files: Top Knots and Stripes


{Top: c/o Conversation Pieces, Denim: ON, Sandals: c/o Windsor Store, Necklaces: DIY, Bracelets: gift, c/o Loren Hope, Shades: Urban Outfitters}


The kind of summer weekends that you live for...
...making no plans till Friday,
watching late night movies,
morning porch or patio talk,
lazy afternoons blowing bubbles, and running the sprinklers,
shopping with a friend,
pool side basking,
catching up with family over brunch,
Olympics,
evening run with Gabe and the kids,
bedtime stories with the fans on high,
and knowing your husband doesn't have to go to work the next day....

Only a few of these kinds of weekends left.
How was yours??


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
