These past few days have been rather intense, as I am finally nearing the launch of my next grand adventure. Mornings are crisp and afternoons are still bright and warm, as shorter days are fading into nights that are nearly cold.  Lately, I have been all work and little play, so in lieu of soirées and other beautiful adventures, plans were made to do absolutely nothing at all. Although there was still time for leisurely morning brunch, shopping for beautiful dresses, reading under the October sun – warm and golden on my face, fresh raspberries tarts (almost too beautiful to eat) and time with friends. I love todays inspiration images.  I wanted to put together something romantic, fashion inspired and sexy…

A favorite color of mine is and has always been blush – the color of ballet slippers. The romantic, feminine and fabulous shade graced Spring runways and became the hottest wedding color for 2014 and 2015 spring weddings.

Blush dresses offer a gorgeous alternative to ivory or white. A sweet take on pastels and perfect for any bride wanting color on her wedding day, if you love the trend, below are some amazing dresses that embrace all shades and styles!
