CURRENT INSPIRATION

It’s currently blizzarding outside (and yes I am aware that blizzarding is not a word, but we’re just going to go with it,) and I figured I would put together an inspiration post. I may not be a huge fan of the cold, but I do love layers, chunky knits and the neutral colors that always come with the winter season.

I love the combination of cream, grey, white, tan, black…the list goes on. These shades look so luxe together and I really am a fan of the camel color which seems to be growing in popularity this season.

I tried to go outside for a bit, mainly because my fiance wanted to go “play” in the snow, but I didn’t last long. The snow was blowing all up in my face and I was not a fan. Call me a wimp, but I’ll wait till the snow stops falling and then I’ll venture out again. In the meantime enjoy these photos!!

INSPIRATION EXPLOSION

A couple weeks ago I started the Fashion Industry Essentials online certificate program offered by Teen Vogue and Parsons School of Design. It’s been a lot of work between the online lessons and assignments and working two jobs, but it has been a lot of fun! The second course focuses on design and I feel way out of my league in that area as I have never made any article of clothing before, but in a week’s time I will have made my first blouse! It may not be sewn, possibly taped together, but I will create something that at least resembles a blouse…fingers crossed!!

One of my assignments today tasked me with creating an inspiration explosion. Basically I ran around and grabbed items in my apartment that I was drawn to and then arranged those items into my inspiration display. I actually quite enjoyed the activity and this was what I came up with.

I’m inspired by so many things and having them all in one place just made me so happy inside. I know that sounds cheesy, but whatever it’s true!!

CURRENT INSPIRATION

As much as I love the warmer weather and laying out by the pool, I am ready for fall. I’m ready for cool breezes and chunky sweaters. I’m ready for tights and booties. And I’m ready for fall colors — burnt orange, mustard, neutrals!! Burnt orange is by far my favorite color and I’m so excited to bring it out!! I mean I do wear it year round — I’m not one to wear specific colors only during certain times of the year — but burnt orange just screams fall!

Sorry for the picture overload. I was just too excited for the new season and couldn’t pick just a couple pictures! I loved them all!

“Fall has always been my favorite season. The time when everything bursts with its last beauty, as if nature has been saving up all year for the grand finale.”

CURRENT INSPIRATION — LUSTING AFTER SPRING

I cannot wait until spring!! I repeat — I. Cannot. Wait. I’m so tired of the cold and the snow. I want to be able to go outside without having to pile on the layers. I want to be able to enjoy my walk to class and not lose the feeling in my fingers and toes along the way. I want to be able to walk without crying because the wind is so strong and so cold (no I don’t cry just because it’s cold). But mostly, I want to bring out my floral dresses, rompers and short-sleeve tees!!

When you’re young, the snow is fun because you can go sledding and make snowmen, but as you get older the snow loses its appeal. Maybe it’s because instead of playing in it, you have to shovel it. No bueno! I’m hoping that the last of the snow has fallen and that spring is on it’s way. Hey, we’re starting to reach the 40s and 50s in Virginia so I’m feeling pretty optimistic!

In the meantime, I’ve collected some seasonal inspiration — flowers and floral fashion mostly. Enjoy!

CURRENT INSPIRATION

I am constantly inspired. No matter where I go, there’s something that intrigues me or piques my interest. Right now I’m really inspired by color and rainbows. If you’ve seen or read any of my previous posts you’d know that I’m pretty much always inspired by rainbows, but right now I am especially inspired! I think it’s because they’re so bright, vibrant and full of life. Color just makes me happy. But don’t get me wrong, I love me some black and white, but I just need a little rainbow thrown in every now and then!

Even if rainbows aren’t your thing, I hope you enjoy these photos and find something that inspires you too!

(P.S. the dress at the very bottom is made from gummy bears! Amazing, right?)
