To Pin / January

 

     Hi there! January is almost over, so it's time to share the pins that caught my eye this month. Rosemary and thyme garnishes have turned into my favorite way to add detail to food photography, and the cookies above look 10x more special because of the little dots of herbs strategically placed on top. There's nothing better for improving styling than adding a bit of greenery to an image!

     I've been dreaming of getting a faux shearling or fur rug to add texture to our home. Look at how gorgeous it is thrown on top of a chair! The look is luxurious but well-worn, and I'm always striving for that.

       My biggest reason for choosing this image is the pink chairs. Yes, that shade is still my favorite color, and no, I don't plan to change my mind anytime soon!

       Love the dress and the styling of this look from Anthropologie. The classic black boots and cute socks ground the off-the-wall denim patchwork of the dress.

     Classic black + white packaging will forever have my heart. The look is just so clean!

      Not only is this shot beautifully photographed and styled, the tacos themselves look amazing! They are cauliflower al pastor tacos, which combines my love of mexican food with the new cauliflower recipes I've been trying that replace meat or carbs with cauliflower. This one is next on my list!

For Pinning / December

 

      Hi there! This month's pins all seem to have a common thread of light tones. During the winter, and the darkness it brings, I guess it makes sense to pine for lightness. Ironically, the washed out color of a constantly overcast sky is what creates the clear but dramatic light in most of these pins. It's a light that's soft, compared to direct sunlight, and it's one of those silver linings that are a constant companion in the winter months. In the months ahead, I hope to put that soft light to good use in creating images for this space. Read on to see my favorite pins from the month of December!

      I specifically pinned this outfit because I asked for a black floral maxi dress for Christmas (and received one, thanks mom and dad!), and have been pinning ways to style it. As long as I end up looking half as cool as this in mine, I'm good.

       Like I said above, I've been very drawn to light tones lately, and the allure of bringing that into decor is no exception. This bedroom is #goals.

     This packaging, and it's simplicity, is my new inspiration for homemade products. Amber glass everything!

     I'm still just hoping for enough snow to go frolic in, rationality and hatred of cold be damned!

     Just so everyone knows, I am on the side of people who leave their indoor lights up year round. I just can't bear to put them away when they make our living room so magical in the evenings throughout the year!

     Thanks for reading, and have a fun Wednesday!

For Pins of the Month / November

 

     Good morning! It's almost the end of November, so it's time to roundup my favorite pins from this month. There was so much Thanksgiving inspo on Pinterest that I started searching for anything but. I love the holiday, but a girl can only take so many tablescapes and recipes! Above, we have one of the few things that make winter bearable: lights. Add in the piney trees, and we're talking dreamworld.

     I loved this home tour of local MO girl Amanda Watters's KC abode. Go checkout her blog, it's very inspirational for those who strive to live seasonally.

     Winter coffee goals, am I right?

     I'm still very into turtlenecks this season, and may add in a colorful one this time around!

     I may or may not have smuggled home some pine branches and cones from the tree farm yesterday.

     It's the time of year for lots of beverages (preferably warm) and moody winter light. Bring it on Winter Solstice!

    As always, all of these pins can be found right here! Thanks for reading, and have a happy Monday!
