A Little Bit of Luck

I’m taking a break from To Be Inspired today to share this mini St. Patrick’s Day inspiration board. I was looking through the Something Pretty archives and realized that I’ve never shared any St. Patrick’s Day content, and with emerald being the color of the year, I couldn’t let this one pass by unmentioned! Hope everyone has a super fun and festive weekend, with the more green sequins, the better. :)

March Inspiration

Happy March 1! I can practically feel spring break getting closer. :) As you may remember, I’m starting out each month with a round-up of inspiration in all different categories. This is a really fun exercise for me, and it definitely helps me focus in on what I’m really drawn to at the moment, which in turn helps me dream up blog posts!  Without further ado, here’s what I’m inspired by for the upcoming month and the beginning of spring.

Wedding inspiration: Keeping it classic and understated, but full of style, for March! This Reem Acra dress is one of my new favorites, and I love how this bride paired it with a a bouquet that balances elegant (fluffy white peonies) and modern (succulents and untied stems). The look all put together? Pefection. Picture by The Nichols via Style Me Pretty.

Fashion inspiration: Is there a more wonderfully preppy color combination than navy blue and kelly green? I’m in love with all the navy-and-kelly striped shirts out there recently, but for now, this picture of the always-gorgeous Sarah Vickers is the perfect inspiration for taking a trend or color scheme and making it your own.

Interior design inspiration: One exciting event of February was signing an apartment lease for next year with some of my friends! We’ve been pinning like crazy, and have finally come up with a theme for our main living area. This is our inspiration picture, and the more I look at all of the details in it, the more I love it!

Foodie inspiration: The arrival of spring always makes me crave cheery, lemon-flavored desserts. I don’t have much experience baking lemon things, but I’m determined to change that this month with these adorable Lemon Meringue Cupcakes. Pretty great styling too, isn’t it? :) Pictures/recipe via Jamie of My Baking Addiction.

Holiday inspiration: St. Patrick’s Day decor is almost always undeniably cheesy, so I love the idea of chic-ing it up. Burlap, baker’s twine, a few deep green accents, and maybe some green glass vases are just the ticket. A few four-leaf clovers can’t hurt either! Via Better Homes and Gardens.

What’s inspiring you for the month ahead?
