Have you ever even seen a Fiat 500 look that rad?! It was only upon the 3rd or 4th time of looking that I actually realised it was a Fiat… Clearly a few tassels and pompoms go a LONG way (on that note, wanna see more pompoms? Check out last week’s post!)
OK, so ‘get to it, Clare’ right? Today we’re hittin’ up our March Pinterest Roundup: our favourite images and trends that have been popping up this month and whelp! It’s incredible! March saw the first day of Spring and boy, did Pinterest recognise that fact! Prepare yourself for summer’s hottest bridal footwear style, mini bar trends, chilled treats for your guests and more colour than Lily Allen’s hair history.
If it’s cloudy where you are, who cares, put your shades on. If you just got your morning coffee, hell, blend some ice into it. ‘Cause we’re about to hit you with some seriously sunny Spring time vibes!
So, it all started with the first image in today’s post, that Fiat 500. It totally inspired to believe that any car, as long as it’s paint job was complimented with the right colours in an array of tassels, pompoms and flowers could be turned into a totally rad bohemian bridal wagon.
Then. Then we met this girlie. She is OWNING that tuk tuk.
Have fun with your getaway, sure you might struggle to get a tuk tuk over from Thailand, but go for a bold colour (that neon pink camper? We DIE) adorn it with all your favourite bohemian decor, or a mass of balloons, and yes, you should TOTALLY paint a ‘Just Married’ sign in chalk on the back window.
We heart it. Big time.
It’s your romantic getaway, but it doesn’t take itself too seriously. It’s up for a giggle and that makes it oh-so-sexy!
Really though! Those flower garlands… Swooning over here, badly!
I just want a fresh one attached to my car every morning, is that really so much to ask for in life?!
Thigh High + Laced up
OH MY GOSH.
So this trend? This trend is EVERYTHING.
Valentino are doing it, Cholé are doing it… In fact fashion week was quite simply inundated with thigh high lace up sandals, and we just adore them.
Insanely perfect for the boho bride, these super comfortable, yet super statement shoes are the only accessory you need to be worried about this summer! Go for suede, in whatever tone you feel right (we’ve seen a lot of black on the catwalk, but there’s a huge range of nudes, berry tones and tan suede on the high street market). Choose to disclose your secret statements only when lifting your dress to walk through the woods to your ceremony (yup, it is kinda necessary, talking from experience here!) or as you dance the night away!
They’re just incredible and best of all?! Our favourite Free People are just ALL OVER this trend and have the most incredible selection, so get your browse on, babes!
What’s better than a set of thigh high laced sandals… Five of them!
I’ll take a set of each please, bag ‘em up, no receipt needed!
Let’s be real here: it’s our favourite, it’s your favourite and y’all need a monthly update, right?!
So! The dresses we’ve been losing our minds over this month (for real, sometimes I see them in my dreams!) look a little like this…
Kickin’ off with Chloé’s chiffon bell sleeves and drop waist in that insanely beautiful powder blue…
What can you say? It’s just everything.
Also, note her totally werkin’ those tie up sandals! YES!
Those dresses though and that Airstream and a major dose of girl power sass?!
It’s just too. Much. Beautiful.
Anything Karlie Kloss wears right now is hittin’ all our buttons.
Cape case in point:
From carefully placed petal designs in a gown of sheer mesh, to these heavy floral cut-out designs, we are totally besotted with all things For Love and Lemons.
And with the right undergarments, those coloured petal pieces would make the most amazing white alternative for you free-spirited brides.
Now, onto our last trending favourite for this month: the dropped shoulder.
This trend is definitely sticking around all summer long, and rightly so!
Gypsy goddess. We heart it. Like, a lot.
Wheelie Bar Love
Taking a cue from the world of interior design on this one, where these little mini bars on wheels are just owning the show right now!
The concept was originally for one’s lounge, or dining area, allowing you to serve yourself and your guests without the need to leave the room and well, just because they look SO dang pretty.
Whelp. You better believe that translates in the wedding world. These perfectly formed mini bars are the ultimate accessory to any wedding lounge, allowing your guests to create, dress and play with their drinks without ever missing out on the conversation!
Adorn with all kinds of pretty: cute napkins, vintage glassware, an amusing framed print, fresh cut flowers, a pompom garland… Maybe even a few cocktail recipes they can concoct from the available products!
They’re super fun, super gorgeous and SUPER handy if you’ve an upstairs bar at your evening reception (like we did) but have less able-bodied guests, who’d rather just chill in the snug area downstairs.
Bring the party to them!
Girls. I’m nobody to mess with a good cake, but when the almighty Pinterest tells you it’s a good idea… Well, you gotta sit up and listen!
Those magical baking masters are playing all kinds of tricks on us right now, but you know what? We’re kinda loving it! Curious ingredients, curious shapes, curious textures, sponge smattered with bright coloured candy, or topped with toffee covered popcorn?! Curiouser and curiouser…
Neapolitan ice cream cake, anyone?
Hashtag gimmie dat sugar rush
I know what I’m having for breakfast…
No I’m kiddin, ahem, kinda.
An Iced Summer
Keeping on with the foodie theme, Pinterest is totally enamoured with all things iced right now too.
Now, I know you might not be feelin’ it just yet (this is Britain, after all!) but as a self confessed ice addict, I can confirm that there’s nothing worse than being at a summer wedding, chatting to a fellow guest, to then find that your once glorious chilled cocktail has been warmed through by the sunshine…
Solution? Stick a lolly in it.
Super playful, summer vibes are guaranteed!
So, babes! If you haven’t already, y’all need to head on over to our Pinterest feed and get-a-browsing, ’cause we share all sorts of goodness, including the extended version of most our inspiration posts, as we always curate the images that make it to the post… So get all you see on the blog and much more over in Pinworld right now!
Peace + Love
