Spring Wardrobe Essentials

21 Mar

Happy Friday! Yesterday was the first day of Spring, so that means temperatures will start to rise and you will need some key pieces to transition your wardrobe from Winter to Spring. I am sharing 4 of my favorite trends: neon, florals, pastels, and metallics.

Neon- I love a pop of neon. It adds a fun fresh look to any outfit. When wearing neon make sure to pair it with a neutral pieces or it is just too much!

Florals- Yes, I know florals are always in for Spring. There are so many great fresh ways to incorporate floral print into your outfit. Add a floral scarf or wear a great printed skirt.

Pastels- Yes another shocker. Pastels are always perfect for Spring. Blush tones and soft blues are my favorite this year. They are both popping up everywhere.

Metallics- This is a fun trend. Again, a little goes a long way. If the bold metallic shoe is too much try adding a great statement jewelry piece or bag.

Flower Power

19 Feb

Flowers aren’t just for your grandma’s house anymore! Floral prints are making a huge comeback in modern designs and colors. This year at fashion week there were numerous designers using floral prints in their clothing and interiors are also following this trend. You can use touches of floral prints in modern ways by pairing it with other patterns or modern furniture. Choose a larger scale floral pattern in punchy colors for the most modern effect. Floral prints can be used in many different ways, but the most popular would be fabrics and wallpaper. Take a look at these spaces that use the power of the flower!

Things I’m Loving… Right Now

10 Oct

Today I am going to share some things that I am currently loving from my Pinterest boards. As I have mentioned in other posts I love Pinterest so I am going to share some of my recent finds of all kinds to get you inspired! Follow me on Pinterest for more ideas! Have a great day!

I love this Euro chic living room. The limestone fireplace is gorgeous and the chandelier is fabulous!

This space is so chic! I love the shape of this sofa and the beautiful rug.

This saturated navy blue dining room is so great. I love the pops of white and mix of black.

Who doesn’t love a little arm candy?

These turquoise tufted headboards are so perfect! I love the mix of artwork and pink pillows.

I love this ombre pumpkin! I think this may be my Halloween craft project!

Black and green olives paired with feta cheese is a perfect appetizer. This is a super cute and simple way to serve them.

I love these pink ranunculus! Had to share this pretty picture with you.

Another great party idea. Doughnut and fruit skewers are such a great brunch idea!

This beautiful pink table scape is perfect for showers, tea parties, or weddings. I love the mixed glassware and tea cups.

DIY Bridal Shower

14 Sep

Last weekend I went to bridal shower for a friend put on by another friend of mine, Jen. The whole concept was put together by Jen. It turned out so great I just had to share the pictures and ideas with you. One of the biggest projects was collecting glass bottles (which I contributed quite a few). I was there to help put together the food items and help with some of the placement of things and I have to say I think everything turned out perfect! Jen did such a great job thinking of every little detail and creating a perfect bridal shower. I will show you the DIY projects and explain how you can put together this look yourself!

These fabulous water dispensers came from World Market. Placed on items you already have around the house adds a lot of character and it’s nice to add some height.

Different shapes, sizes, and colors of bottles add personality to a table. Choose beautiful florals to finish the look.

These fabric flags were made by Jen’s mom. The colors were so perfect and fit the style of this shower fabulously! The little signs that had descriptions of each item were placed on wooden Scrabble tile holders. Such a creative idea!

The mimosa bar was a huge hit!! We chose 3 juice flavors and had a variety of fresh fruits and herbs to mix in. This is such a great idea for any shower.

Mixing in the blue milky glass with the bottles added the perfect accent color to the table. You can’t tell in the picture, but we also mixed up the plates. The different plates really added a special touch and interest to the tables.

Mason jars served as water glasses. Each had a number and tied with jute so everyone remembered which glass was theirs. The little details make all the difference!

The food! 2 different quiches, a frittata, and yummy scones were served.

This cake was so delicious! Jen’s mom made the “bride” flag and tied it onto chop sticks.

I think the best part about this bridal shower is we used existing tablecloths, dishes, furniture, and many DIY crafts. I think using mix and match items really created a great look. Everything flowed and went together and the result was a fabulous effortless backyard bridal shower.

Mother’s Day Entertaining

9 May

Rue Magazine has their new May issue out and there are some amazing new ideas. One that I thought I would share with you is their Mother’s Day ideas. Some of the Bay Area’s best entertaining experts put together a beautiful brunch in Napa and I was truly inspired. They have some great tips you can use for your own Mother’s Day celebration.

Some of the expert tips include: Choose a bold fun color palette. Prepare 75% of your food ahead of time. Save the time just before your guests arrive for final baking and plating.

I love the bold red and white stripes creating a tent-like feel. The accents of gold add elegance to this brunch. I hope you get some great ideas. This issue of Rue Magazine is great!
