On an unrelated note: I hope you had a super great weekend! My family came out to visit me and we ate monstrously at Umami Burger. I love that place. I also went to the Rose Bowl flea market and picked up some random things, including 3 new succulent plants that I’m in love with! But the best part was that one of my very best friends had her baby (actually it was Thursday but I’m going to count that as the weekend) and he is already the cutest little boy I’ve ever seen in my life! Love you Logan!
On a related note: I’m a huge fan of online publications and Collected Magazine ranks as one of my favorites. It’s fairly new in the online magazine world but it definitely packs a punch, highlighting all of my favorite things, including fashion, delicious recipes, fun restaurants, and some of the best decor I’ve seen in awhile (hello, Herman Miller Eames chairs). You must check it out, friends.
Here are some of my favorite pages:

Adding some fun elements to the new place in the form of chevron stripes: 1) a soap dish used to hold my gold rings; and 2) a pillow to decorate my couch.
I love incorporating bold patterns into my life. More to come!
Right now, I’m absolutely smitten with pastel-centric color palettes, especially the combination of minty greens and pale peaches. Besides the fact that it sounds like a yummy dessert/snack (sliced peaches & mint tea? no? am I the only one that has food on my mind constantly?), this color combination is feminine and sweet and quintessentially spring.
So pretty much, I wish I was wearing a pleated mint green skirt and peach blouse while filling my mint green and peach Ikea storage boxes with awesome coffee table books and knick knacks.

Lately, I’ve been spending all of my free time scrolling through visually-inspiring blogs. And by that, I mean blogs that focus primarily on beautiful, whimsical images and exquisite photography. I swear, I could stare at pretty photos all day long. They have become my number 1 source for inspiration, whether it be getting dressed in the morning, thinking of new recipes, or virtually decorating an apartment.
Below are some of my favorite visually-inspiring blogs, ranging from street style, food, design, and hybrids (a little of everything…fashion/food/decor/crafts).
JAK & JIL
CANNELLE ET VANILLE
BECAUSE IM ADDICTED
COCO + KELLEY
EAT DRINK CHIC
LACE & TEA
WIT & DELIGHT
THIS IS GLAMOROUS
What are your favorite blogs to find inspiration?
P.S. If you are wondering why I didn’t include any fashion-centric and/or personal style blogs, it’s because my list of favorites is far too long and I just couldn’t cut it down! That’s a whole other blog post altogether.
