True Beauty Files: Cobalt + White


{Cobalt Cowl: c/o Knits & Knots, Sweater: thrifted, Tank: Guess (thrifted), Jeans: Polo, Bracelets: c/o Angel Wings Accessories, Boots: Zara}

Cheers to long weekends, husband's being off work, lots of snuggle time with chubby cheeked babies, and an endless source of baked goodies. It makes for a hangover of a Monday though, doesn't it??

I felt like sporting some winter whites to welcome the cold weather;) The only problem I have with this beautiful blue knitted number above... is that its so soft and fluffy that I want to doze off standing up. Its basicly a cowl neck pillow. Yes its true. A dream puff of winter warmth. I have been eyeing up every piece of clothing in this color and now I have an excuse to wear it on multiple occasions.

Hope you all had a grand holiday! The countdown to the most wonderful day of the year begins! Love, Anna


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

  13. Cobalt is one of my most favorite colors for winter! It's bold but elegant. I can't pull off winter white - I'm too messy/klutzy! So black and cobalt are my favorites. :)

  32. oh Anna, what a striking combo!!! i love the vibrant pop paired with a more laid back, neutral palette. total achievement of beauty!! long weekends are so great, agreed but then they also make me lazier when it comes to going back to work. we should implement a workless week a year plan i think :)

    your time off sounded wonderful, wishing you a very happy Tuesday too! xo ♥
