True Beauty

It seems easy enough, get dressed in an outfit and take pictures of yourself in it. What they don't tell you is how awkward it is to take pictures of yourself, or in this case, for Luke to take pictures of me. The neighbors are all watching and you make weird faces, but I really wanted to link up with Anna of In Honor of Design's True Beauty Files this week, so I toughed it out.

I've been living in maxi skirts recently, and I can't get enough. This shirt from old navy is one of my favorites and I wear it at least once (ok maybe twice) a week.
I love Anna's inspiration for this series, to encourage women to dress in a way that shows your true beauty, your confidence and your self worth.
Happy Monday lovelies! What did ya'll do over the weekend? We went up to Anderson for an amazing conference with Newspring, and then hit up our favorite restaurant ever, Smoke on the Water. Their macaroni and cheese will change your life. Gouda cheese with a bread crumb topping... is your mouth watering yet?
