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!

Would you wear a blush wedding dress, or are they too overly girly for you? Leave a comment below letting me know if you love this trend or not.

FLOWERS THAT HANG FROM THE CEILING

How can a ceiling covered in flowers not wow you? Crystal chandeliers complete the glamorous effect of this lush indoor inverted garden. Use the same concept over a dance floor, head table or ceremony site.

THE PERFECT FLORAL ARCH

The arch is a focal point of any ceremony, so make it something to stare at. And there’s nothing quite like a flower-covered trellis to do just that. Hanging crystals and cascading vines create a pretty backdrop for photos. Play with color and floral varieties to make it work for any season or setting.

ALL WHITE EVERYTHING

There’s something so timeless about a clean and crisp all-white reception. Use height, texture and lighting in your centerpieces to create depth. This will make your flowers stand out — even against a monochromatic background

OBSESSION WITH OMBRE

The ombre trend isn’t going anywhere anytime soon. It’s made its mark on almost every wedding element, from invitations to cakes and even dresses. This look works best on long tables, so you can really see the slight variation between each shade. You can stick to one flower type, like roses or hydrangeas, to really make the colors pop, but feel free to do whatever types of flowers you love!

FLORAL WALLS

Flower-covered walls are the next big thing in wedding flower decor. And why not? This idea pulls double-duty as both a ceremony and photo booth backdrop. It’s also a great way to bring the outdoors in if you’re saying “I do” in a ballroom setting.

HAPPY PLANNING!

Today’s gorgeous images swept me away and inspired me to put them all together in one beautiful and romantic post. Inspired by my favorite color combination — soft blush and striking black — it includes all things feminine, black and white polka dots, sweet and sexy lingerie, as well as flower embellished martinis; almost too beautiful to drink.

This weekend marks the last holiday of summer, from swimming pools and days at the beach to dinners outdoors, we say goodbye to sunlit days and warm summer nights.  And so, before we wrap ourselves in cosy knits and search for tall leather boots hidden in the back of the closet, may your weekend be a beautiful whirl of celebration, for the end of summer is upon us. Wishing you a perfect one.

Let your imagination carry you away, to the beaches of Brazil, Hawaii, Greece; wherever your mind takes you. Sailboats and nautical stripes, coral and bikinis… Let yourself be swept away, for the warmth and beauty of summer, will soon be fading into a new season.

Today, I enjoyed the cool breeze off of the ocean, stuck my feet into the warm sand and felt the touch of sunlight, warming my skin and relaxing my body and mind. I’ve been so preoccupied these days.  I sometimes share deep truths about my life on this blog, but I really try to make it more of a beautiful escape… for us all. It’s so important to take time to enjoy the simple things, to reflect and meditate…. life is simply one beautiful day at a time.

There is nothing quite as breathtaking and beautiful as this chandelier lined catwalk.  As images of art float down the runway, one shirt in particular caught my attention. Entirely composed of diamonds, it glided down the runway, catching every facet of light in the room, shimmering towards the awaiting flashes of photographers from around the world. Truly breathtaking, a stunning work of art.

Here, we love all style inspiration, from couture to the everyday woman.  But today it is all about elegance.  Beaded and silk works of art.  Shades of perfectly pretty neutrals, to bright accent pieces like fushia and red, all color is fitting for those sunlit days that fade into unforgettable summer nights . . .

Wishing you a summer of romance and style. xo

A few gorgeously chic ideas and images for all fashionistas out there . . . Dreamy mixtures of fashion and a few favorite things. Diamonds layered upon diamonds and blush colored couture- truly fit for royalty- are amongst this collection of utterly beautiful images.  I find myself dreaming about velvet ribbon-tied heels, white bouquets of roses, sheer tulle skirts and delicate lace dresses, just to name a few. . .

Wishing you a beautiful Monday. xo
