• Gold + Black Wedding Inspiration

    Today’s guest poster is my dear friend Chrissy with a color palette that is one of my absolute favorites! Enjoy 🙂

    Well hello there Oh Lovely Day readers! Chrissy from The Perfect Palette here! Just stopping by to share a little color inspiration while Chandra is away! Looking for wedding day colors that are classic, elegant, and all kinds of pretty? Shades of black and gold always have me at hello. And I’m hoping you can see why?

    I think what I love most is that there’s really no shortage of pretty possibilities when it comes to bringing this lovely color palette to life! Like this beautiful lantern send off for instance. Nothing could capture this color palette better than the gorgeous glow of these lanterns as they contrast against the dark, night sky. Oh, and I can’t go without mentioning this beauty of a cake. Goodness! That almost looks too pretty to eat! Am I right?

    So tell me… what sort of colors evoke a classic elegance in your mind? And might you use a classic palette like this one for your upcoming wedding and/or party? I’d love to hear your ideas!

      I’m using this colour combo for my impending wedding and I love it!!! It fits so beautifully with so many classic and timeless ideas, like silhouettes and classic white flowers. You can see pics of my current plans and DIYs on my Instagram account at gem2311.

    •  You know what is a great motivator? Not wanting to be outdone by your big bro. Cause look who's pulling himself up, so he can keep up  #quincysmilestones #calvinandquincy #lawdhelpme #charlieandcalsroomredo  There were very few baby things I hadn't yet tried by the time I had Quincy but I hadn't really used a sling before. I got my first sling when I was still pregnant with Q and tried it with Calvin, but once Cal was walking he never wanted to be carried. He's far too busy for all that. So Quincy is the first baby I've used a sling with, and I feel like I really missed out with the other two. I had and loved other carriers with them (and still do) but there is just something about the sling that is magical and it is my carrier of choice right now. It is convenient (you can keep it threaded and just throw it on), it is cozy, it doesn't tightly wrap behind my back which always makes me sweaty, and I can nurse while Quincy is in it which has been a lifesaver. I'm actually nursing him in this photo! I'm sharing photos from our recent visit to the pumpkin patch and how I got to do all the things with my family while wearing Quincy in the sling because I didn't have to stay with him in the stroller or go find a place to nurse him. He chilled, ate, and napped in my sling. And because I love it so much I'm teaming up with @mywildbird to give one reader a sling of their choice!

       And just like that, summer is back  Take me back to the fall weather of two days ago! Also, take me back to when this kid slept past 5 am and took naps. For a week now, between 4:30-5:30 am this kid climbs up on our bed over top of me and proceeds to squrim, poke, and annoy me till I get up. Quincy's sleeping till 6 or later FINALLY and now Calvin is waking me up!? And he refused to nap today (again) too. Seriously you guys, he's killin' me. He looks real cute in rain gear but if he does it again tonight he's headed to toddler military school. #sotiredineedanewwordfortired #calvins3rdyear #battlefieldmotherhood  The look you get when your mom puts on some JT for your photoshoot.
