Good morning sweet friends! Hope you all had a lovely weekend! Mine was pretty laid back and COLD!
Winter decided to turn its frigid cheek in NC this weekend.
I am participating in Anna's The True Beauty Files link-up today! I loved the idea that Anna came up with to show the style and fashion of a modest woman. We all get so caught up in the glamour and glitz of hollywood fashion and sometimes forget to stay true to who we are and how God has created women to represent purity, modesty and conservative dress. I think there are so many ways to portray beauty in a woman who likes to dress for fun and as a representation and unique style of oneself, with a void of cleavage or a lot of leg to be shown.
I admit to not always having dressed the way I think God would want me to, but am so fortunate for friends like Anna, who has shown me, as well as other women, that you can look beautiful and still be pleasing to God when styled modestly, no matter what size, height or color you are.
Here is my first take on an outfit with all of this in mind.
Forgive the camera quality. I am not an owner of a high-tech camera, nor am I a model by any means. Haha I had to just let loose and have fun with this little shoot, as I am quite nervous to pose by myself. I'm hoping to become more confident in taking these pics and hope I give you the courage to express yourself and join with us in Monday's True Beauty Files!

Anna's Inspiration for 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
