Color Inspired : Lavender, Sage & Mauve
Good Morning again, loves! It's finally Friday and you know what that means?! It's the first official weekend of summer! As you're all getting ready to head out to the pool, beach, or basically anywhere else that is slam packed with other people, take a moment to rest your eyes on a perfect therapeutic color palette. As the summer is here, I will be finding some brighter colors to inspire us in the sunshine, but this week has been crazy and all I have been able to think of is getting a good night of sleep! So I decided on the calming elements of lavender. This popular, light, dusty shade of purple is very versatile. It can be made playful for a daytime wedding by adding shades of yellow, or dressed up with deeper shades of purple, such as plum. For today, I wanted to stick with the organic, natural-ness of it. So I chose to pair it with sage & mauve, both equally calm colors. 
So before you start checking off your busy schedule, relax! After all, it is Friday! Dab a bit of lavender-scented oil on your wrists, and let the visual stress-relief begin!

9. A plain white wedding cake gets a makeover with sprigs of lavender. This cake looks best with the imperfect frosting strokes. Solid fondant would be too dressed up. via {StyleMePretty}
10. Sprigs of lavender in glass vases line the aisle leading to your beloved. How beautiful woul that moment be? :-) via {ForgetMeKnot}
