Style Saturday--Bella Verita

My friend Isabella not only has great style, she is also beautiful inside and out! I wanted to feature her in Style Saturday, and since her name means beauty, I thought I'd have her share what she thinks of true beauty.
She dined with our family at our favorite trattoria, and while we ate homemade pasta, we chatted about beauty, truth, and love. Sounds so Bohemian.
I made some notes on my placemat.
Isabella eloquently and confidently poised these thoughts:


True beauty can't be about your face; it has to be something that can last. 

She said she thinks beauty is rooted in spirituality--that a person's soul, mind, and attitude makes them beautiful.  I love her thoughts! I also love how she wears a bunch of grapes around her neck. It makes me think of the fruits of the Spirit, which she possesses.
Isabella has confident ease in her loose leg pants and scrunchy long-sleeved sweater. She mixes blue and black and makes it work with her converse!
Isabella said true beauty isn't complicated.

"It's simple, like love."
Isabella affirmed that beauty is not limited to women. A man or woman can be equally beautiful in their personality. 

She said ultimately that beauty is associated with love
--that God's love for us is beautiful. 
And that while He is complex, His love for us is not. 
It is simple, 
we just merely accept it from Him.
  
"The fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, and self-control." Galatians 5:22-23
