True Beauty Files: Holding on to summer stripes

{Dress: Hatch Collection, Tassel Necklace: c/o Le Pompon (my friend Camille's brand new shop!), Belt: H&M (similar), Sandals: Dress Up Boutique, Tote: H&M (Similar), Earrings: Stitched + Adorned, Watch: Aldo, Bracelet: c/o Loren Hope)

Remember how you all helped me vote on which Hatch Collection dress to get on the fan page??  Well this one tied for most votes. I think everyone knew how much I love stripes. I can't imagine why?? ;) Its so comfortable I want to sleep in it! I wore it out on our date this weekend. (More on that later.)

Hope you all had a great weekend!
Anyone else a little depressed the Olympics is over?! It was an incredible year for the games....Although I can't say the Closing ceremony was all that grand. Agree or disagree? At least the Spice Girls made a cameo and rocked it! (I shamelessly admit I got giddy excited about that one.)
Wishing you a great start to your week!

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

  12. I'm progressing through the stages of grief with the end of the Olympics... the closing ceremony was okay, but the gold medal recap program was right up my alley!

    Also up my alley: wear anywhere stripes. This dress looks so versatile, and I love it on you!

  23. Lovin' the stripes! You can even wear this into fall. Sometimes I put leggings under maxis :)

  24. I was so sad about the Olympics being over last night. I think there's nothing cooler than connecting with a global audience in such a fun, inspiring way. I also agree with you on the closing ceremony...I could have used some more Spice Girls and less of everything else.

  30. I have the same chain link bracelet as you. Did u find the gold plate wore off in two seconds flat? Mine has and am super bummed. Wondering how others have held up, and this is a pretty popular bracelet in the blogosphere...

  31. You look amazing in stripes! I like how you kept the belt low rather than at the natural waist.

  32. You look so pretty and the dress is perfect for summer. LOVE the Audrey quote. Audrey had the very best quotes I think. She was such an inspiration!! xo

  33. FIRST of all, you are adorable. *I'll have what she's wearing!! Second: yes, I'm kind of depressed about the Olympics. It's so fun getting to see the world come together to compete. I was pretty much freaking out when I realized the Spice Girls were going to be there. I wish they had performed longer!

  34. Ah, LOVE that Hatch collection dress...looks incredible on you.

    I hemmed and hawed my entire pregnancy as to whether or not to splurge on a dress from that collection....decided against it...I just felt like (even though their mantra is wear it after pregnancy) I wouldn't want to wear it after being in it 8 months preggo. Now I am wishing I had...it looks SO great on you!
    Happy week.
