True Beauty Files: Outerwear


{Utility Jacket: F21 (similar), Yellow Jacket: c/o Deloom, Gingham Shirt: Banana Republic (similar on sale), Jeans: ON, Boots: Carlos Santana, Bracelet: c/o Inpink}

A funny thing about Atlanta in the fall...
There is a 20-30 degree difference from the morning till the afternoon.
This is why the only solution is to layer and layer well. 
Obviously this is okay with me - its my favorite hobby.

How was your weekend?
I am a little bitter over the fact that it felt like a long day rather than a whole weekend.
I'll get over it...

Fun things to share with you all this week. Stay tuned!

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

  31. yes! I totally agree with you on the layer. so tricky sending the kids to school this time of year, spring too. it's chilly enough for mitts in the morning, but by the time the bus drops them off in the afternoon, they don't even have a sweater on! great layering...I'd consider you a pro at this now ;)

    Have a lovely week Anna!
