Purple Coated Birthday Wishes

8 Sep
{Images via here}
This post is dedicated to my beautiful Mother, who’s favorite color just so happens to be purple.  I hope you had the most wonderful day possible, filled with a lavender sunset, blueberry cheesecake, and cozy purple knits. No one deserves it more than you.  We have our differences and don’t always see eye to eye, but there’s never an argument when it comes to our love of purple. Thank you for being who you are and for making me who I am. Happy Birthday Mom!  I love you!!!

I Love Hue; Olive Chic

19 Jul
Sequin bustier cotton dress, Alice & Olivia, $495
Encore L’Amour silk-chiffon bra, Mimi Holliday by Damaris, $90
Encore L’Amour silk-chiffon thong,  
Mimi Holliday by Damaris, $60
Color me Couture, Lorac Eyeshadow Palette, $37

I’m totally loving the hue Olive right now… maybe its all the military influences seen on the Fall runways, but I simply just can’t get enough.  “I Love Hue” is a new feature you can come to expect on FWD where I will feature an outfit centered around a Hue I’m totally loving at the moment.  And since the things I love are constantly changing,  I Love Hue will be a very random feature that may happen several times a month, but at the very least, you can come to expect it once a month.

Let me know what you think.  What’s your favorite hue at the moment?

Magically Delicious Pops of Green

18 Mar

Hello there everyone… I know I’m a tad late but “HAPPY ST. PATTY’s DAY”!  In honor of the Irish (which I happen to be a wee bit myself), I thought I would share this magically delicious flower arrangement and photography featuring the color green. Isn’t this arrangement fabulous!!!  Once I get back to reality (mid April) are all the traveling I have been doing with work, I’m totally using these images as inspiration for my own Sunday Morning Bloom’s keeping in mind the amazing color story featured.  Hum, how fab would this color story be in my kitchen against my charcoal chalk board walks and white cabinets.  Now theres an idea… *the wheels are turning*
