Skirt: Dress Corilynn c/o // Denim Vest: DIY  (similar) // Booties: Madewell

I am challenging myself and Gabe with the style posts to stretch a little more creatively. We found these walls and surfaces in the middle of our town on an unappealing street. These walls and floors have character non the less and wonder what their purpose was before they were out of use. I have so many fun spots to show you these coming weeks and am looking forward to working with a fellow creative on these posts as well. (Will give more details on that soon.)

Now let me clarify the fact that I don’t get dressed up every day, but on the weekends, its nice to get out of the favorite grey tee and put on a feminine pair of heels. Does wonders for this gal. Kind of a mental re-charge. The time I put into taking care of myself always gives back to my family in a better way. This blog challenges me also to do this more often which I am grateful for. I am taking these posts back to the meaning of dress….to put the best of your heart into all you do.

Hope you had a great weekend friends!

 
“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

  • You – and your pictures! – are always gorgeous! And I totally agree, it’s amazing what putting on a pair heels (well, wedges for me) do for your mood.

  • “The time I put into taking care of myself always gives back to my family in a better way.” – More women need to hear this!

    By the way, super cute outfit! Love that denim top.

  • I love that Audrey quote. So spot on! And I love your skirt, it’s perfectly bright!

  • i love that audrey quote! i like to dress up on the weekends too! it’s so nice.

  • One, you look amazing for having just had a baby, just lovely:) Two, I agree about dressing up a couple of days a week, it really does bring a woman back to her true self, as motherhood tends to distract us a bit. Three, LOVE that quote at the bottom, I couldn’t agree more!

  • Cute, Anna! Love the whole combo. I’m the same way- really only get dress dressed on the weekends.Otherwise, it’s mostly comfy comfy.

  • love love love the yellow and the denim..GREAT PAIRING!

    I am doing major changes over on my bloggy blog and really trying to make a comittment for cooler locations for shoots as well…its challenging…because I really try to shoot what I am actually wearing that day..so sometimes it doesn’t lend itself to driving around and taking pictures…but when I CAN, I would love to highlight the beautiful Jersey Shore.

    Anyway..hope you and your beautiful family are doing well! I can’t believe how great you look! Baby weight is just gone!!! HOw did you do that so fast?

    All the best
