Lime and Lavender Inspiration

Hi friends! I apologize for falling a bit off the radar this week (HOLY BUSY) but I’m back with two exciting blog posts, including the rest of the gorgeous real wedding of Alisha and Neil! But until we get to that, I wanted to show you a little number I’ve been working on for some time.

I’ve always been a lime girl. I love the color, I love the flavor, I love the look of the fruit. Lime, to me, just rocks. It’s bright, it’s cheery, it reminds you of summertime margaritas by the pool and it creates such a fabulous statement. It’s not as offensive as neon yellow but has all of the more favorable neon properties.  Plus, who doesn’t like key lime pie? Really? I’ve also always adored lavender. And now, thanks to my office mate L, I am obsessed with lavender flavored food. I’ll take a bowl of lavender ice cream over chocolate chip any day. Plus, it’s a less abrasive purple and it reminds me of Easter Egg hunts and soft cotton dresses. So imagine my excitement when I saw these two paired together. Let’s just say, it was legendary. These colors are a perfect choice for a late spring, early summer-time bride.
