BEAUTY IS WITHIN.....
















































WHAT I WORE: H&M: Jacket I Unknown: Jeans I Old Navy: Shirt I Target: Booties I Unknown: Bag I Forever 21: Bracelets

"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


Happy Friday!!! This quote from Audrey Hepburn touched my heart when I read it.  One thing I can say about myself is that I am a truly passionate person. When I care about something/someone, I put my all in it and I am never half-hearted. This concept can be overwhelming for some people because zeal/passion is hard to find, if it is not done for selfish purposes. Also, I would like to add that the definition of beauty is very narrow. Beauty is not so much your outer appearance (i.e. someone looks you in the eyes and for a brief moment you can see into the depths of their soul). The beauty in this is that you open yourself up and you are vulnerable to making a real connection.


I put this outfit together and never considered that the weather would mess up my hair! It surely got crazy/bushy looking and I even started to worry. Then I thought…who cares, I am thankful to have hair. This post made me realize that things are not always set in stone. You have to be willing to adapt to different things and still be able to work it! I know this sounds cheesy, but true beauty is within. What are your thoughts?

                                                        Fashion Love,
