July Inspirations


Even though this July is different from years past, it’s still one of my favorite months. It’s hard not to be happy smack dab in the middle of summer! This month, I’m looking forward to finishing most of my summer classes, starting a new blog series (coming up Thursday!), and celebrating the 4th of July and my little sister’s sweet 16. Here are a few things I’m being inspired by that I know I’ll refer to again and again.

Wedding inspiration: I posted this image on the 4th of July last year, and it is still my favorite patriotic bouquet. I love white anemone, and the medal on the bouquet wrap is such a sentimental touch. Classic with a heavy dose of meaningful is what I’ll be looking for this month!

Foodie inspiration: My mouth is watering over this Spinach and Artichoke Grilled Cheese recipe. Sounds like the perfect lunch to whip up between classes and make the middle of the day a little more special.

Fashion inspiration: Gal Meets Glam is one of my new favorite fashion blogs–Julia has amazing girly style. I love how she looks casual, but perfectly polished, in this outfit.

Holiday inspiration: Occasions posted the most adorable 4th of July styled shoot the other day, and I fell in love with the darling berry place cards. Seasonal, festive, and delicious–what could be better?

What’s inspiring you this month?
