There’s just something so poignant and bittersweet about this time of year, isn’t there? Jenn here, having a hard time believing that another summer has come and gone. Something about the season changing… reminds us of all our seasons past. School is back in session now, and I plan on taking a few last quiet dips at Barton Springs during the weekdays while the weather is still hot. My board was inspired by the photo on the top left of a young Grace Kelly, taken by Howell Conant in 1955 on the coast of Jamaica. Isn’t it amazing how modern and beautiful this photo is still today? I hope that you all enjoy these last days of summer, and are looking forward to the excitement of fall ahead.

    I love the colors this time of the year… they too bear that bittersweet transitional feel. Your moodboard is terrific.

    This is my favorite summer inspiration board yet. It’s making me miss the season already.

    I feel like summer has come and gone so quickly too! I also find myself wishing for fall but this inspiration board reminds me to hold on to the last warm(er) days a bit longer. Pretty inspiration 🙂
