True Beauty Files: Pastel + Floral


{Top: Zara, Cardi: Banana Republic, Denim: Old Navy, Sandals: Dress Up Boutique (similar), Earrings: Stitched + Adorned (10% off with code IHOD10), Bag: Vintage, Bracelets: Francesca's, gifted, Sunglasses: Urban Outfitters, Nails: Essie}

Style Word: Spring is the perfect time to wear pastels and it is fun when you can pair them with a floral! This look was retro inspired:)

Anyone else have major food and sugar hangover right now?!
Since Gabe and I gave up sweets for Lent, we might of indulged just a little bit yesterday;)
It was such a beautiful Easter, and I hope you had one as well! Halleluiah He is Risen!
Especially loved seeing Gabriel in a bow tie, and Veronica in a bonnet. I died and went to heaven.

P.S. Its the last day to enter to win an Ikat Print from Lona de 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

  8. I'm having to do the opposite. I've been gorging myself on sweets lately, and I'm trying to cut them out for the next month....I have to be swimsuit ready in 3 weeks for our cruise! I love sweets and our house is swimming in them right now, so I'm doubtful this goal with actually be accomplished!

    Great outfit...love the floral!

  36. This is really a pretty in pink outfit with a definite 50s/60s sensibility. The soft, warm, pink light really makes these stunning images even sweeter. You should be really proud of these photographs. Thanks, as ever, for the blessed inspiration. I hope your Easter was a really lovely family time and your daughter another blessing and revelation.
