Monochromatic Monday :: Sea Glass

January 16th, 2012


Around this time every year, I start dreaming of the ocean. Just as it gets cold enough to pull out my winter coat, I can’t seem to stop thinking about strolling in the surf with the hot sun on my shoulders. Can anyone sympathize? Today’s inspiration board is meant to take us awayย for a moment, and after all, it’s not too early to start planning springtime showers and birthday fรชtes! I love this look for an all-girls’ event, as there’s something decidedly ladylike about whispering shades of aqua and tiffany blue. A polka dot skirt with peep-toe heels, a perfect china cup full of rich cocoa and an assortment of tea sandwiches laid perfectly on a teal platter are all the makings for a pretty and proper afternoon full of lovely details. Hope you’re all having a lovely Monday morning…we have some special posts lined up this week that I just can’t wait to share with you!ย

    I love the minty MIDI with the neutral accessories, its so lady like and easy at the same time. The map and the books appeal to the book loved in me. There is nothing better than prettily bound books, right? ๐Ÿ™‚
