March Inspiration


Happy March 1! I can practically feel spring break getting closer. :) As you may remember, I’m starting out each month with a round-up of inspiration in all different categories. This is a really fun exercise for me, and it definitely helps me focus in on what I’m really drawn to at the moment, which in turn helps me dream up blog posts! ¬†Without further ado, here’s what I’m inspired by for the upcoming month and the beginning of spring.

Wedding inspiration: Keeping it classic and understated, but full of style, for March! This Reem Acra dress is one of my new favorites, and I love how this bride paired it with a a bouquet that balances elegant (fluffy white peonies) and modern (succulents and untied stems). The look all put together? Pefection. Picture by The Nichols via Style Me Pretty.

Fashion inspiration: Is there a more wonderfully preppy color combination than navy blue and kelly green? I’m in love with all the navy-and-kelly striped shirts out there recently, but for now, this picture of the always-gorgeous Sarah Vickers is the perfect inspiration for taking a trend or color scheme and making it your own.

Interior design inspiration: One exciting event of February was signing an apartment lease for next year with some of my friends! We’ve been pinning like crazy, and have finally come up with a theme for our main living area. This is our inspiration picture, and the more I look at all of the details in it, the more I love it!

Foodie inspiration: The arrival of spring always makes me crave cheery, lemon-flavored desserts. I don’t have much experience baking lemon things, but I’m determined to change that this month with these adorable Lemon Meringue Cupcakes. Pretty great styling too, isn’t it? :) Pictures/recipe via Jamie of My Baking Addiction.

Holiday inspiration: St. Patrick’s Day decor is almost always undeniably cheesy, so I love the idea of chic-ing it up. Burlap, baker’s twine, a few deep green accents, and maybe some green glass vases are just the ticket. A few four-leaf clovers can’t hurt either! Via Better Homes and Gardens.

What’s inspiring you for the month ahead?
