It has been a long two week hiatus from the blog, I’ve missed it a lot. Graduation is soon approaching, so job hunting season is here and has been consuming my life. The past few weeks I have been preparing for my school’s annual career fair: updating my resume, preparing my answers for all those behavioral questions, and networking with employers. I was so blessed to have 3 interviews last week and 1 more this week!! Now I am just practicing patience and waiting on God’s timing and direction. Now that fall is in full swing, I am hear with a Manic Monday post in honor of Fall, MY FAVORITE SEASON in Michigan. Let me share some of my favorite inspirations with you. Love this little accent, an edible Apple Centerpiece. I will continue to enjoy some delicious Cidertini’s Riding Boots. I have a pair that I love to wear during the fall! Chocolate Pumpkin Pie. Can’t wait to try this! Festive Fall Wreath, this might be pretty easy to make. Pumpkin Spice Donuts. Ashley also has a PS version that is vegan over here. I can’t go through the season without carving at least one pumpkin. This site has some great downloadable patterns. I hope you all enjoy the beautiful brisk fall weather, the gorgeous colors, and all the delicious recipes you can find!
My favorite pattern right now is color blocking. It can be incorporated into so many aspects of my style, both in my wardrobe and in my home decorating. The fun part about this design is that it doesn’t follow traditional coordination. Any colors can be mixed together for a funky bold look; pink & orange, black & navy, green & teal, etc. Whatever you like goes! J Crew cap toe pumps. DIY coming soon. A very colorful blouse. Great transition colors as fall arrives. Color blocked nails for anytime of the year. This post has an easy tutorial. Black and white curtains made complete with red accents. Last but not least, fun and easy canvas art. I made this to coordinate with my bathroom, but if I were to recreate the masking tape art I would use several bright contrasting colors. Have a happy Monday!
A big influence during our wedding planning period were beautiful peacock feathers. I love the perfect blend of cool colors; brilliant royal blue, a ravishing combination of greens, vibrant gold, and my favorite dark purple. It has been a year and I am still inspired by the peacock feather. A lot of the inspirations below are from our wedding!! Enjoy 🙂 Peacock cupcake theme (Photo courtesy of Danell-Garza Photography) Feathers scattered among irises (Photo courtesy of Danell-Garza Photography) Bridesmaid dresses in similar color palette (Photo courtesy of Danell-Garza Photography) Painted heals as the focal point of an outfit (Found here) Scattered among wild grass. I now have a bunch of peacock feathers in one of those large jugs at our apartment!
