Humble Beauty

I had a wonderful vacation but am so excited to get back to blogging. Everywhere you go, you see girls with various levels of pride. We all need to have confidence in how we look, but many women these days are so high maintenance and prideful in how they look and act. The other day I was cruzin' down Sunset Blvd, and boy band song, "What Makes You Beautiful" came on. Besides the fact that the song is totally overplayed and I was so tempted to change it right away, I actually stopped for a moment and listened to the words. She doesn't know that she's beautiful, so that's what makes her beautiful. It may sound silly for a moment, but this humble view of ourselves emits it's own natural beauty that's more attractive than pounds of makeup and pouty lips. 

Do you realize you're beautiful?

Displaying humility through an outfit can actually be sexy (like the song says) because it's attracting people who like you for who you are. This outfit above is so pretty, but not in an over-the-top sort of way. The pastel skirt fits well with the boho look and I love the lace Toms to complete. 

While we need to maintain a balanced view of ourselves, some girls take it the opposite direction and have so low self-esteem that they never view themselves as "pretty" or "beautiful." It's sad because everybody is beautiful- but most take their pride to the opposite extremes. 

Natural Beauty

That's why natural beauty is truly what the word "beautiful" means. Its not only external, but internal as well. To capture a natural beauty look on the outside, however, it can be done so many different ways- but keep it simple. Opt for minimal makeup and an easy fabric like chiffon and pastels. I love this outfit because if the tie up white wedges that goes perfectly with this airy mint dress- naturally gorgeous! :) 

So let's strive to display that humble beauty no matter where we are on the spectrum of self-esteem and always dress how we feel! I hope your day is filled with happiness, love, and laughter <3
