Inspirational Prettiness

So while I was trolling wedding blogs today (yes, you read that correctly), I stumbled across this blog, A Thing For, where all the blogger does is make adorable inspiration boards.  Like all the time, just inspiration boards.  THEY'RE SO PRETTY.  They mix fashion and nature and total randomness, and somehow manage to make perfect sense.

J. Crew Ladie's Companion Tote, $10 at I am in love with these J. Crew totes.  They're totally affordable, pretty decently-sized, and have the cutest prints on them ever, all of which revolve around puppies and clothing and shopping, AKA three of my favorite things (if there were also ponies, I would be losing my mind).  These would be so great for groceries, sleepovers, text books, going to the beach, you name it.  And since they're only $10, you could afford to buy all of them!

Sea of Shoes: I love the pictures from Sea of Shoes.  Girl has skills.  There's just something so desolate and yet romantic about this shot.  The lighting is perfect, the mixture of fur and lace and silk is so unexpected, but so pitch-perfect, and I really want her hair. 

Jak & Jil: The mix of textures here is genius, with the applique nature of the bag, and linear and studded bracelets.  Since the bracelets are so subtle against the statement nature of the clutch, it works without clashing.  And I really, really want that clutch.  It's the perfect size...le drool.

 And now time for an installment of things Megan finds absolutely hideous:

Nightcap Clothing Flamingo Skirt, $264 at, Superfine Chase in Sweat Pants, $209 at That skirt.  Hm.  Hmmm.  The clothing equivalent of a mullet?  Yes.  In a trippy wallpaper pattern?  Yes.  With awkward lace trim?  Yes.  For more than $250?  Yes.  Someone explain that to me.  And then there are the $200 drop crotch sweatpants.  $200 for sweats is bad enough, but $200 for sweats that also make you look anatomically incorrect?  No, thanks.

 MAC Chromagraphic Pencils, $14.50 at I have been looking for a good, off-white waterline eye liner for EVER.  It's hard to find a light, eye-safe pencil that's not bright white or yellow.  I know these look brownish, but swatched they're a really nice, pale beige that's basically skin-toned and would be a really great way to wake up your eyes in the morning.
