Daily Inspiration – Grandpa’s Library!

I had the opportunity to visit where I once lived as a little girl. Being surrounded by true family and friends was incredible. Being back in my grandpa’s home library was extremely inspiring. Every time I’m back I like to spend some time there. There is so many things to admire and take in. I will share some more pictures soon. For now, take a little tour with me…

Grandpa you are my inspiration. Always and forever.

Daily Inspiration – Holi (Short Film)

You know when you get a chance to talk to someone you haven’t spoken to in a while & they remind you who you are, where you come from and how far you’ve come? This happened this week. Sometimes you get lost in a stupid routine and forget to pause, take a moment for yourself and realize how lucky you are. This film says it all. “Life is extraordinary. Embrace it”. Happy Friday!

Daily Inspiration – Quirky Motel

Every time I drive by this little motel I’m drawn to it. Not because I need a place to crash but simply because of its bright colors. I’m sure you don’t see a “Mint green and purple” motel in a lot of places. The fact that they still promote their “Color TV” cracks me up all the time. Places like these always make me smile. Even though it stands out like a sore thumb, to me this motel fits in this crazy city. This proves again how inspiration is everywhere, especially random colors.

I guess I’m really into retro signs. Do you like bright colors in buildings too? What about old signs?

Hope you smile!

The Inspiration Style – Moonrise Kingdom

If you haven’t seen this film, you must drop everything that you’re doing and go see it! I’m serious. Stop reading and go. Well, maybe finish this post and then head to the movie theater.

Moonrise Kingdom is the latest film by Wes Anderson. Every single shot of this movie is amazing. From the vintage color scheme, to quirky details and of course, gorgeous 60’s fashion. The film tells a story about two 12 year-old lovebirds trying to escape their hometown. I’ll stop there.

Besides a great story and a great cast, I was in love with the set and costume design. Susy’s (Kara Hayward) look simply stole the show. I was inspired by it to do this:

 

1. It Takes Turmeric Dress $57.99

2. Diamond Grid Socks  $4.80

3. Vintage Samsonite Suitcase $40.00

4. Saddle Shoes $37.99

5. Red Beret $8.00

6. Gourd Garden Dress $79.99

7. Vintage Binoculars $25.00

8. 1960’s Blue Suitcase $26.00

Have you seen Moonrise Kingdom? What did you like most? What’s your favorite 60’s inspired film? I forgot, you can watch Moonrise Kingdom’s trailer right here.

Hope you get inspired!
