Austin had it’s share of visitors from around the globe this past weekend for the first annual Formula 1 race at our new Circuit of the Americas racetrack. The city was abuzz with excitement over the foreign guests, and in particular several rumors that a few monarchs might be in town. Jenn here, and I suppose you could call it a guilty pleasure, but I love my royals! This week’s board was inspired by them and that most noble of hues, royal blue. This is one of my very favorite colors to wear, and one that particularly flatters fair skin! You can incorporate a little royal blue into your life with this “Syncopoated Swing Dress” by Katie Ermilio for BHLDN, a fun Princess Diana look-a-like ring from Ariella Collection, or pieces from this pretty blue china pattern from Bernadaud. Happy Thanksgiving week to our American readers, and remember — we may not have our own royals, but we do get one pretty fantastic food-centric holiday.

      Thanks, Yelle! I think she’s very like-able, too. Seems like someone I could be friends with!

    I’m simply obsessed with this round-up! Royal blue is such a beautiful, regal and glamorous color, I can’t believe I don’t have more pieces of this color in my closet!

    I think this is my favorite monochromatic monday so far. The royal blue is so
    striking in these pictures. I adore the table set with the blue & white vases with
    the white tulips. It is truly a table set for a King! (or Queen).
