Blue Suede Shoes {Inspiration Board}

This week's dose of pretty came to me the other day while purchasing an AMAZING pair of Jeffery Campbell strappy sling-backs of royal blue suede and blush leather. I loved the shoes, but first thought to myself "Do I dare?" "How do I wear these?" "What are my color pairing possibilities?" I purchased anyway, and after much rummaging through my closet I grew to love a blush and gold combo, pop of pink, and my new blue suede shoes. I tell you this long-winded story of how I came to feel inspired by a certain palette option, because one of my very favorite notions is "find inspiration in the most unassuming places". To be quite honest, as a wedding blogger, its something I live by everyday. Taking my dogs for a walk, waiting in line for a salad, parallel parking (...I live in SF), or even grocery shopping (gorgeous Cali produce is a perfect stimulus ). The point is, while taking in all the obvious and beautiful wedding inspiration inundating us everyday online, always be on the look out for that not-so-obvious muse. Then turn to all those amazing wedding blogs (...like Wedding Row California) to help you apply that found inspiration into real ideas. Happy hunting, xo.

Confetti {Inspiration Board}

CONFETTI!! That word, especially with a few exclamation marks makes me very happy. It gives you the immediate feeling of celebration and joy. Confetti is popping up all over the place, and not only in the truest sense of what "confetti" is, but in the designs of fashion, decor, stationery, and even food. Incorporating confetti into a bridal shower, bachelorette weekend, and EVEN your wedding, just screams fun. Plus, the addition of confetti makes for some AH-mazing photo opps - trust me on this one. So take a peak below, and peruse some gorgeous confetti and confetti-inspired designs that are applied in the most unassuming ways. I also have a swoon-worthy wedding with a little whimsey, some purple tulips, paper airplanes, and of course confetti...right here!

Banana + Mint Inspiration Board

Today I wanted to put a twist on traditional color combo, yellow and green.  By muting the usual tones to banana and mint shades, we end up with a look that is a bit retro, a little vintage, yet still a very modern via the unexpected usage, i.e. mint dishware, banana bound books, and a nontraditional bridal gown.  What do you think? Any other color combo's you'd like to see twisted?
