Thursday Love List


Happy Thursday, and happy December 1st! I’ve wrapping up the end of the semester, and since I only have one final that’s not till next week, I’ll be headed home tomorrow to get started on my Christmas break a little early! I’m so excited–not having finals in my four other classes is great, but it means I’ve been overwhelmed by final tests and projects in all of those classes this past week. I’m more than ready to curl up with my puppy and watch Christmas movies at home!

I’ve been feeling newly inspired and motivated lately, between my new Daily Inspirations page, and some more fun things I have planned for Something Pretty that I can’t wait to work on over break. Here are a few things from the week that are definitely making me even more inspired. :)

 {One of my all time favorite gowns–sherbet tulle Lazaro–altered slightly for this fun Style Me Pretty bride. I think wearing this gown would make me want to dance too!}

 {Some stunning florals lining and framing the altar on Elizabeth Anne Designs. I’ve never seen anything like this before, and I think it’s truly stunning.}

 {Gray tweed, royal blue, and a perfect boutonniere…this is groom style done to perfection! Via Style Me Pretty}

 {For anyone plotting their Christmas wrapping already, Laura of You Stir Me created the cutest DIY for Scandinavian-inspired paper. It reminds me of my favorite Christmas books–Trouble with Trolls, and The Mitten, both by Jan Brett.}

Be sure to check back tomorrow for a post that is kinda sorta a dream come true for me. That’s all I’m saying for now! :)
