April Inspiration


April is my favorite month! Not only do I love Easter, the beginning of spring, and for me, the school year wrapping up, but it’s also my birthday month! I feel quite lucky to have diamonds as a birthstone ;) I like to surround myself with my favorite things even more than usual in April, and here’s what I’ve rounded up to inspire me.

Wedding: This gorgeous wedding was like a breath of fresh spring air! The bridesmaids were dressed in the prettiest lilac, the bouquets were gorgeous, the paper products were divine, and the bride and groom…well, they looked like this and took pictures on a swing. What’s not to love? I’ll be looking back at this one all month as a reminder of how beauty and joy are equally important in a wedding. Picture by SheWanders Photography via Style Me Pretty.

Fashion: My style mantra for the month? Effortlessly ladylike. There’s nothing more fun than throwing on a swingy skirt on a warm spring day, and I’m determined to do just that as much as possible in the next few weeks. Blair Eadie is the perfect inspiration for girly outfits and flawless accessorizing (another element I’m working on!).Via Atlantic Pacific.

Interior design: I’m sure y’all have seen Dallas Shaw’s office floating around on Pinterest, but seriously, isn’t it flawless? From the gold folding screen, to the white furniture, to the perfectly placed details (I spy the same Rifle Paper Co. calendar that I have!), everything is so pretty and inspiring.

Foodie: I went to visit my boyfriend over the weekend and learned something new about him–he makes the most insanely addicting banana cream pie. Surprise! Now that I’m back in Austin and craving that pie like crazy, I’d love to whip up a lighter version of the Southern staple, banana pudding. Via Southern Living.

Holiday: Okay, so my upcoming 22nd birthday is not really a holiday, but y’all are welcome to celebrate with me by enjoying some cupcakes or champagne on April 15th! It’ll make tax day much more fun, I promise :) Via Oh Happy Day.

What’s inspiring you this month?
