cherry blossom inspiration
I’m ready for the cherry blossoms to come out! The magnolias have been gorgeously making their appearance amongst us here in DC, but I’m hoping this sunshine and warmer weather will bring out these blooms for at least a weekend or two so long as the allergies stay far, far away.

pantone color of the year 2014 | radiant orchid
Pantone announced the color of the year is radiant orchid! Frankly, I’m never in “season” with their picks for the year but I thought it’d be fun to do a little board of fun things within the color range.

1 / This sham and duvet set from Serena & Lily has a simple + neat berry border around it.
2 / Black currant frozen yogurt, anyone? I know it’s freezing out, but Jeni’s always sounds delicious.
3 / I love me some candles and good packaging, put them together with this (MALIN + GOETZ) otto candle and I’m sold.
4 / Baggu. I can always use another, and this one is leather!
5 / This set of Quips + Queries cards by Russell + Hazel are minimal with a feminine touch.
6 / Fellas, you can get in on this too. Snag The Charleston shirt by Hugh & Crye in purple gingham.
7 / The illustrations of Joy Laforme are beautiful on this Briar Bush I iPhone case!
8 / Ladies, this EQUIPMENT Brett shirt in grape is a wonderful winter color.

Let’s see how the year plays out and how this color is incorporated into everything, especially fashion and weddings!

inspired by succulents
Hi friends! I’m back after an extra-long Thanksgiving hiatus, sorry to have missed out on a week. It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmastime and I love the idea of mixing in succulents with your holiday decor. They’re pretty low maintenance plants as long as they get good sunlight and won’t make it look like your aunt with bad taste came over and had Christmas explode in your house. Find a way to mix in these minimal, modern florals in your house this holiday season!

ruffled wedding gowns
With many of my best friends getting engaged and married this year [starting this weekend!], I thought it’d only be appropriate to continue with the wedding-related posts. Ruffled wedding gowns are one of my favorites – there’s so much character and texture in a ruffled wedding gown that translates so well into photographs.

These are some of my favorite ruffled wedding gowns:
The Anemone gown by Kirstie Kelly [photo by Elizabeth Messina]
The Cloud Dress by Oscar de la Renta [via James Nord]
Blush ruffled gown by Monique Lhuillier [photos by Sweet Little Photographs and Alexi Shields Photography]

Ooh la la, I’m in love with them all.

color story / burgundy



inspired by burgundy
Last year at the Chapel Designers conference, Ariella Chezar designed this beautiful bouquet shot by Vicki Grafton. Between that and my current favorite Essie nail polish, I’ve been embracing the deep burgundy hue. Snag a leather baggu in small or large sizes or add in some gold foil to say ‘Thanks’ this Thanksgiving [card by Rifle Paper Co.]!
