I hope you all had a great 4th of July weekend! Maaaan, was mine busy! Aside from the normal holiday fare, our family had 3 big birthday parties, so our days were jam-packed. I was so thankful that we had the most perfect cool weather. I think it was the most pleasant Ohio's ever had on the 4th. And as an "out-of-towner," it's always nice to get to see my entire family at once. Life was good, my friends.
Here are some other things I think were pretty good this week...
1 I always have a hard time feeling inspired about summer clothing so I was especially excited to see all of the unexpected warm weather ideas in the Rebecca Minkoff Resort 2015 look book. (Fashionising) | 2 Speaking of inspiration, these watercolor invites make me want to paint everything fuchsia and orange. (Enjoy It by Elise Blaha Cripe)
3 A peek into the homes of the coolest women around for ideas on how to decorate like an It girl. (Domino) | 4 London blogger Will Taylor of Bright Bazaar in an engagement shoot that melts my heart. So, so sweet. (Style Me Pretty)
5 Two new illustrators to obsess over. On left, the London-based, impeccably detailed Marcel George (I Love Illustration), and on right, Paul Ferney in his impressionistic pop up collection for Furbish Studio (Oh Happy Day!).
A perfectly pretty summertime dessert. (Chic in Columbus)
Love this behind-the-scenes look at the making of a Brahmin bag. (Stripes & Sequins)
A seriously beautiful Instagram account (and blog!). (Girl About Columbus)
I so badly want to make (and eat) these. (High Heels and Glittering Eyes)
A chic and totally doable guest room update. (The Hunted Interior)
How have I lived life without these earrings?! (Gal Meets Glam)
