    {Color Crush} Mint + Yellow Wedding Inspiration

    mint + yellow wedding inspiration

    My color crush on mint is nothing new, but now I’m crushing hard on the mint + yellow combo for spring. Add some aqua into the mix, and you’ve got a palette that is crisp, refreshing, modern, and fun.  I’m thinking confetti, stripes, ruffles, and pops of color are the perfect mix of prep and femininity to add to this festive palette.

    What color combo are you currently crushing on?

    {Inspiration Board} Black + Gold Glam Wedding

    black and gold glam wedding inspiration from oh lovely day

    {palette} gold, black, and ivory paired with patterns and sparkles.
    {inspiration} glamorous, fashion-forward, modern with a hint romantic vintage, this wedding is for any season but best for a more formal evening wedding.

    so, do you love this color combo as much as I do?  The sparkly gold mixed with the graphic black and white patterns is pretty much perfection in my book.  I want a room in my home to match this board!

    {Inspiration Board} Sparkle + Mink Winter Wedding

    {inspiration} for that winter wedding that’s not exactly a holiday wedding, not exactly a New Year’s wedding, but wants a little extra sparkle & pop

    {palette & details} winter white + silver sparkle, of course, but with pops of deep red in the bride’s lips and nails, and pops of red in the florals would be lovely.  I also love the idea of the bride wearing a vintage or faux fur mink wrap.

    don’t you think this is a chic, fun, and cozy winter wedding style?

    {Inspiration Board} Inspired by Pantone’s Color of the Year: A Wintergreen Wedding

    Happy Monday! Did you see my big announcement this morning?  I’m still in celebration mode over here.  But I didn’t want to forget to share today’s inspiration board, inspired by Pantone’s Color of the Year and one of my personal favorite shades, Emerald.

    wintergreen wedding inspired by pantone's #coloroftheyear: emerald. by oh lovely day
    Emerald is one of those colors that truly looks great on everyone. As a blond, I’ve always loved it on me, but it is gorgeous on raven hair and redheads alike.  Don’t believe me? Keira Knightly, Mila Kunis, and Amy Adams have all rocked it and looked fab!  And if you watch Dexter, then you probably fell in love with the one his girlfriend Hannah wore in last night’s episode (I know I did!).  I can totally see why Emerald is the color of the year, can’t you?  
    So, do you love Emerald?  Are you planning to use it in your wedding color palette?

    •  It seems like only yesterday I was bringing Charlie here at this age (there's even a video of Charlie wearing this exact shirt there in the #charlielovestheyellownoodles feed!) And now #calvinlovestheyellownoodles too. I'm gonna blink and Quincy will be doing the same thing. They grow up way too fast -- I'm so grateful to have this time with them. #thesearethedays #calvins2ndyear  Took the littles to @lacma to wear them out, but I think this one wore me out instead  #calvins2ndyear #OLDsfaveplacesinLA #lacma
       Love your guts from that fluffy hair on your head to those curled up toes ❤️ And don't forget to check out the blog today for a post on our experience with infant reflux and 7 tips for dealing with it, plus what products and treatments worked for us. Link in profile - tag your infant reflux and colicky baby parents. #22weeks #quincysweekbyweek #quincyrhys #whatquincywears #infantreflux #colic #momtips  If there's one bit of wisdom I could share with other parents that I have learned with absolute certainty as a mom of three it is this: sleep begets sleep. The better they sleep, the more they sleep. The more they sleep, the better they sleep. It might not make sense that putting your baby down at 7 instead of 8 or 9 will get him to sleep longer, but by god it does. I'm gonna share all of my tips on getting your babes to be good sleepers. But first I wanted to talk about infant reflux -- our experience with it and what has worked for us in dealing with it -- because I know many of you are also struggling with it. And it's just beyond the pits. So head to the blog tomorrow to read that post and I promise to get the sleep one up soon. I feel like I could write a whole book on it at this point. Maybe I should write a whole book on it... 🤔 Also, This picture of Quincy from his nap today is totally distracting me from getting any work done at all. Because those cheeks and lips are all I can handle right now  #quincyrhys
