Found Inspiration

I've been incredibly weighed down with work related activities this week so I decided to find inspiration through silent film, art, Pinterest, hanging out with friends and of course craft time (which I will show at a later date). Here are brief snaps and tidbits of what I'm being inspired by at the moment.

How's your week going so far? Fret not, Friday is just right around the corner!


Pinterest Love:
 

*Above: This ivy cathedral in Belgium is just beautiful- the art, structure, and texture inspired me in many way.

I've also been quite struck by the colour green lately. Having a love for many colours it's easy to let each day perspire a new mist of influence for my wardrobe. By incorporating old pieces with new ones I have recently been into vintage basket-styled handbags, and I do believe I'm in the market to acquire yet another one soon!

    That green Lanvin dress is so fantastic. Kelly green has always been one of my favorite hues. Totally inspired by this board of yours. Snakeskin has really made a statement and will transition perfectly into fall. Looking forward to seeing what you've been up to craft-wise! (Just joined Pinterest. So obsessed.)
