Board#73: Homespun Whimsy

Welcome to another week!! I am in mourning today after a certain tennis player lost a certain match yesterday. I am somewhat obsessed with one Roger Federer and as my friends and family know, I literally shut down unless he all but thrashes his opponent (please don't ask me about the game or mention it). Childish I know, weird - highly possible (ok totally weird!), but hey we all have our vices right? It really got my Sunday off to a bad start! But let's look forward to a brighter week...
Today I have another fun springtime inspiration board for you. Red and Yellow conjurs up quite a whimsical look to me, and definitely an outdoor garden style wedding. Whilst I would probably never personally wear it as a combination I'm completely in love with the cute Anthropologie outfit top left. I think you would want to use these colours in moderation, but still have fun with them. Striped straws, paper pinwheels, mismatched fabrics, all conjur up a playful whimsical soiree. What do you think, is it a combo you'd use?

This combination is just so lovely and sweet. That cake, the cherries, and the dog are too cute!

I'm really into yellow these days... and combined with these colors the result is perfect! This could be the most beautiful Spring inspired wedding ever!!

Kate this is just GORGEOUS!!! I love yellow and grey, but with some red and mustard it is the perfect board to take into Fall! So inspiring. And I tell you the pic of the dog in the photobooth gets me EVERYTIME!!

I love it - perfect alternative to the aqua and red I see a lot of at the moment, but it still has the same fun feel and can use fun red and white accessories like the stripy straws. Great board!
