Loving Metallic Gold

Another trend of the moment that I can’t get enough of? Metallic gold. Depending on how it’s used, it can look either super glamorous or sleek and modern. I love how just a touch of metallic shine instantly adds a festive touch to any celebration or outfit. File this trend under, “cant’ get enough!”

Party Palette: Coca-Cola Red + Brights

I’m switching gears entirely with today’s color palette (compared to Monday’s color inspiration), inspired by the cheeriest shade of Coca-Cola red. Paired with sophisticated primary shades of royal blue and lemony yellow, it takes on a fun, retro vibe with the addition of kelly green and teal thrown in the mix. Need even more color ideas? Check out all of our Party Palettes to get inspired!

A Beautiful Equestrian Day-After Shoot

If you remember Angela and Andrew’s beautiful castle wedding, you’re going to love their absolutely gorgeous equestrian day-after shoot captured by the amazing Justin & Mary. I love the easy styling of this shoot and Angela’s absolutely flawless hair and makeup. I always love it when a couple finds a few quiet moments during the wedding weekend to get extra photos taken together. Throw in a castle and a gorgeous horse and you really can’t go wrong.

Party Palette: Clementine + Watermelon

Everyone has been loving the weekly color palettes so much lately, I decided to pull together an extra one this week. Behold – gorgeous shades of goldenrod, clementine and watermelon! Ok, I admit I am still loving the heck out of all shades of peach and coral. Here I love the richer, more saturated hues, which have more of a warm, autumn-inspired feel. What colors are you loving for fall this year? Tell me in the comments and maybe it’ll inspire Wednesday’s color palette!
