Morning lovelies! Hope that all of you had a great weekend – I can’t even begin to recount the events of the last two days (two Father’s Day celebrations, brother’s 30th birthday and a baby christening all made appearances), but by far the most memorable was the baby shower that six of my favorite girls hosted for me on Saturday. From vintage vases overflowing with white peonies to sweetly decorated petit fours to the armfuls of baby girl dresses I loaded into the car at the end of the party…it was perfect. I’ll share photos later in the week, but for now – today’s Monochromatic Monday! It’s already so hot in Austin, and I’ve been craving all the fruity, icy treats I can get my hands on (did y’all catch this roundup of our faves?) Today’s board was inspired by the bold, juicy hues of tropical fruit popsicles, best enjoyed by the pool with oversized sunglasses and a big stack of magazines. Tangerine and hot pink is one of my all-time favorite palettes, and this energetic combo has all the makings of a perfect summer fête…grapefruit bellinis & color-blocked sundresses required!

    I absolutely adore these colors together. Your weekend sounds jam packed! And I’m pretty sure LIFE is best enjoyed by the pool with some oversized shades on 🙂 Happy Monday@!

    Gorgeous and beautiful inspiration board! I can’t wait to see photos of your baby shower event.
    We had an amazing weekend, it was my son’s birthday on Saturday and Father’s day. I would love to share with you some photos of the cakes I baked for both my son and my hubby.

    Those popsicles look like a work of art themselves!
