{Lust List} Be Nice In Spring

Daydream-In-Color-Lust-List-Be-Nice-In-Spring

I’ve not worn a maxi skirt since forevers, but I’m suddenly drawn to them like a moth to the flame. Blame it on the flowy colorful layers or how versatile they can be. I’m definitely daydreaming about wandering farmers markets in this cute outfit smelling flowers!

I’m romanticizing about wearing a wispy red dress like this with an equally stunning floppy hat. Actually pulling it off is another thing, but one can daydream.

What are you pining for most about Spring?

{Loved & Noted} Make A Kite, Hello Sunshine Snack, & Wood Flower Stirrers

Daydream-In-Color-Loved-And-Noted-Make-A-Kite-Wood-Flower-Drink-Stirrers-Hello-Sunshine-Snack

I want to start a new series called {Loved & Noted} that displays inspiration from creatives and fellow bloggers from all over. These are a few things catching my eye lately. This cute printable kite, a yummy and healthy hello sunshine snack, and this simple DIY sola flower stirrer by Confetti Pop perfect for spring (buy wood sola flowers here $5/18). It’s been in the mid-80s up in the Pacific Northwest and I’m loving all these bright fun colors!

{Lust List} Modern Day Flower Girl

Daydream-In-Color-Lust-List-Flower-Girl

All that’s needed for a modern day flower girl is a playful floral dress (€132), a colorful basket purse ($198), and some lovely blooms that last forever ($16). I’m loving this hand drawn pattern on this hand made dress by La Casita De Wendy. The other things in her shop are also lovely like this cute raffia bag & cookie bag (check out the behind the scenes for her bag collection here)!

We’re off work today enjoying the sunny weather (& picking up some furniture). We’ll also be headed this cooking demo tonight with Seattle’s Tom Douglas. Should be fun!

Do you have plans for this weekend?

I’ve been having a love affair with rings lately. Today I’m lusting after this sparkly Mercury Mystic Topaz (£35), this Ametrine & Ouro Preto Imperial Topaz (£23), this Rose Quartz & Pink Tourmaline (£35) and this Multi-Coloured Multi Gemstone (£35) from Gems TV Online. Their unique colors just draw me in.

Daydream In Lucite

CC Skye Lucite Clutch ($275) | Louis Ghost Chair ($410) | Lanvin Lucite Wedge Sandal ($1590) | Alexis Bittar ($275) | Lucite Trunk | Jonathon Adler Lucite Lamp ($487) | Natasha Couture Bead & Chain Necklace ($24) | Nesting Tables ($130)

With Spring around the corner, lucite is bound to be another fun trend. Since getting the nesting tables above, I can’t seem to stop looking at any piece of furniture that features lucite. It not only helps make a space look bigger, it’s fun when they’re injected with a hint of color. That clutch and those wedges (a pretty splurge!) would definitely go with everything.

Are you a fan of lucite?

Yesterday was Spring Equinox and also the start of the National Cherry Blossom Festival in Washington DC. How I’d love to see all the pink blossoms that dot the city. Instead, I’ll be daydreaming in delicate flower crowns, pretty rings, and a spritz of cherry blossom perfume. By the way, how good do those cherry blossom dark chocolates filled with cherry almond liquid caramel look! I also found these adorable cherry blossom sticky notes. Come back tomorrow for a free cherry blossom notecard to print out and celebrate Spring!

PS: If you are looking for more cherry blossom inspiration, try making a crown like this.
