I must confess, lately I have been drawn to shades of purple no matter where I see them, and my obsession is honestly out of control. The one color that always grabs my attention shopping both online and in stores is the fresh, majestic hue better known as lavender. This feminine palette calms my nerves as school kicks into gear and my last semester is in full swing. This lavender arrangement would look lavish paired with a crisp white background or mixed with other pastel pretties. Don’t you agree?
I hope you all are embracing the spirit of romance today… I know I sure am! This delicate, rosy colored inspiration board is helping me plan what to wear tonight in order to show off my love-day mood! I could easily feel down and disheartened spending my Valentine’s Day single yet again…but I couldn’t be more excited to go out with my gals tonight who are all in the same boat. If you didn’t get the chance to hear about my festivities, read here for all the goodies!
As you get older this dreamy holiday isn’t always so peachy perfect, but I am determined to remember the times where handing out sweet little valentines topped with lollipops and candy hearts was oh so fun…and this year is no exception! I plan on bringing something special to dinner for all of my lovely ladies as we spend our last few months together before parting ways and entering the real world (outside of college). So, like I said earlier this month, be happy in this moment and cherish those who love you unconditionally both today and every day!
For the past couple of a years, my girls and I have made it tradition to road trip out to New Orleans and spend time indulging in dueling piano bars, delectable and distinct Cajun food, and days that turn into nights full of memories of our college experiences. Tomorrow, we will set our Pandora stations to catchy nineties tunes yet again, as we catch up on our Christmas holiday spent away from school and get excited for the NYE festivities to come! Today’s style board is full of my most celebrated times in NOLA at the one-of-a-kind coffee stand Cafe De Monde, on Bourbon listening to genuine street music that you can’t find anywhere else, and dancing behind feathered creations to hide from the crowds. I hope you all have a healthy and happy new year! … See you lovelies in 2012!
