    Whenever we find ourselves in a style rut and needing a little inspiration, our blogger gals never fail to show us how effortless outfits can be! We love the way all different types of bloggers show off their personal style in the most simple of ways, making it easy for us to achieve the looks, too!

    Shannon of GBO Fashion creates a fun outfit that can be worn just about anywhere. The casual stripes paired with the sophisticated florals really catches our attention! Mixing prints is one of our current favorite trends and we love the way Shannon's prints work so well together.

    Kaity of Brownie Diaries looks darling in our Lady Grace Peplum Top. She pulled together a simple outfit with cuffed jeans and fun colored flats!

    Joanna of ModaMama looks ready for a fancy night out in our formal occasion dress. You can never go wrong with a mint dress, especially when it's embellished in pretty silver beading. To finish the look, she added a pop of pink with her heels and opted for a nice neutral clutch and a polished up-do!

    Melanie of A Modern Dame sweeps us off our feet in an outfit full of Ruche! Our Overture Sleeveless Blouse, Midi Tulle Skirt, and Tea Time Bow Flats come together for an outfit fit for a lovely date night.

    It's always a delight to see brides so beautiful and beaming on their special day, especially when they choose to include Ruche as a part of their celebration! Pamela and Micah tied the knot last year in a darling vintage-inspired wedding ceremony complete with rustic decor, sweet treats, and our Isla Wedding Gown.

    Photography: Abbey Daniel of MTAS Photography

    To make this wedding day even more wonderful, Pamela and Micah were able to stay under a $2,500 budget! Here's how they did it:

    Micah and I sat down before any planning started and listed out the top things we had to have in our wedding and set a realistic budget and anything extra would have to be either handmade or borrowed. When you create a budget and stick to it, you can easily create a beautiful wedding for a price within your budget. Something creative that we did and saved us a ton of money was a pot-luck dessert reception. In the invites we told each guest to bring their favorite dessert and it created the reception food and costs us hardly anything! Pinterest and friends who have their old wedding decor stashed in storage will be your best friends.

    Engagement photographs are such a wonderful thing to have to help you remember an amazing chapter in your life and finding the right photographer is just as important! We're in love with the way that Caroline Tran captures the pure bliss in this styled shoot for her Propel Workshop with Lovely Jubilee (which also produced this Valentine's shoot with our clothing!). Our sweet bridesmaid dress dazzles in the sunlight and against the beautiful greenery for a picture perfect shot.

    It's no secret that we love do-it-yourself projects, but we get especially excited when it involves recycling or potentially digging through treasures at the local flea market! This project is a great solution for anyone who is looking to add an expensive and shabby-chic headboard to their bedroom or guest room. 

    My husband and I had been looking for a way to fix our room on a budget. We loved reclaimed wood and just about anything reclaimed. Because of good vibes and good fortune we came across some old doors and did not want to pass up the opportunity to buy them. (Especially since they were $5 together!)  We gave them a good scrub and we really didn't want to do much else to them. So we mounted them onto our wall just about our bed and made a headboard out of our two new (old!) doors.

    --Shelby, of Brandon and Shelby

    A conversation about 1960s fashion wouldn't be complete without mentioning Twiggy, the classic style icon. With long eyelashes and short hair, Twiggy quickly became the face of the 60s and has continued to be an influential part of our fashion world today. Sources: 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6

    For more 1960s inspiration, take a peek at our 1960s collection of vintage-inspired clothing and accessories.

    We were so excited when we heard that Elsie and Emma of A Beautiful Mess were launching their own photo app. Every photo that these girls put on their blog or Instagram is perfection - and now everyone can have access to their creativity to make their Instagram feeds better!

    Fancy borders and text blurbs are fun to add!

     Embellishments give our product photos extra pizazz!

    Adding hearts helps highlight the things we love - delicious french toast and pretty iPhone cases.

    We really had too much fun making these photos and we know you will to! A big thanks to Elsie and Emma for allowing everyone to access their creativity through this wonderful new photo editing app!
