• {Color Crush} Indigo Wedding

    color crush on indigo by oh lovely day

    I’ve been majorly crushing on some indigo lately.  It actually started years ago with an eye shadow.  It was love at first sight and ever since I’ve been obsessed with that deep inky shade of blue.  Then I saw this on instagram from Kristina of Lovely Morning and 100 Layer Cake and my obsession was reignited.  I’m now determined to dye every white tee I own indigo (and a few of Charlie’s too, since they don’t stay white anyways).  Then I thought, “how cool would this be, translated into wedding inspiration!?”  But first…

    I love the shades of indigo and how unique each pattern of the tie dye can be.  And the color and patterns inspire other translations of pattern and palette.  It made me think of cobalt blue china, of denim, of vintage bottles.  Of all the things you could bring into a wedding.

    Just think of the possibilities with an indigo wedding!  You could go modern or rustic, vintage or classic.  But I really envision it as an outdoor summer wedding.  What about you?  Crushing on indigo too?

      Beautiful! Love indigo and how it looks so crisp against white in the beach tablescape image. That ring is stunning!

      What a lovely color palette. Like those blue flowers in the mason jars.

    •  Sleepless nights, sibling fights, tantrums and meltdowns and tears. But these are the days, going by in a haze, that I'll miss when I'm late in my years. #peptalkformyself #battlefieldmotherhood #sendacaffieneIVdrip #theadventuresofcharlieandcalvin  This week has been straight up ROUGH. Charlie has been home sick from camp, Quincy is sleeping his worst ever, Calvin had a toddler meltdown at the museum today the likes of which I have never seen, it is 9 million degrees, and I have so much work piling up I feel like I'm being swallowed up in quicksand. But today at the park Quincy took a mini nap in the stroller, the big boys played on their own without fighting or needing me to intervene for 10 whole minutes while I sat alone on a blanket. It was glorious. #battlefieldmotherhood #summer
       He's got me wrapped around one of those blurry little fingers and he knows it. It's the dimp that slays me.  #quincysweekbyweek #26weeks  Life with these boys is an adventure of mammoth proportions  (see what I did there #ivegotpuns) #theadventuresofcharlieandcalvin
