Spring Gatsby


Thank you so much to everyone who sent graduation congratulations over the weekend! I’m so proud to have graduated from UT, and it was such a journey in every way getting to that point. Now it’s on to the next chapter, but not before a few weeks off to process the fact that I’m done with college, spend lots of time with my family, and do a few of my favorite summer activities. I’m already chipping away at my summer reading list, starting with re-reading The Great Gatsby, since I’ve been holding off on seeing the movie till then. I read most of it sitting in my hammock yesterday and will be finishing it up at the pool today! With all of that gorgeous 1920’s inspiration in mind, I put together today’s inspiration board. I wanted something a little less art deco and a little more romantic, and a color palette of deep red, soft pink, black, and gold brought it together just the way I wanted.
