Hello sweet lovely friends!
Melissa here from Melissa loves. I am thrilled and honored to be posting here in my friend Suzanne's stead. As I think she is one of the loveliest ladies in blogland. I glean so much inspiration from her and in her honor(and thanks to my friend Ez for the idea) I thought I would do something related to inspiration. I am sure most of you are inspired on a daily basis by any number of things. A photo, a person, a piece of art, a sweet gesture, a phrase or quote or something in nature.....there are any number of ways to be inspired. For me, this time, it was this brooch. Something about it captivated me....maybe the colors?( I do love grey :) or the bird? ( I do love birds) or the way the designer has mixed materials so well together? (I don't know) I am known to love sparkle but, conversely love simplicity as well. Maybe that is it....the sparkle and the simplicity. It inspired me and I hope you enjoy what it conjured for me.....what is inspiring you today? I would love to know!

Oh melis i love that brooch for ALL of the reasons you pointed out. And that J.Crew outfit - I think you've just given me my staple Spring look (if it ever decides to come over).

Love it all. That brooch is incredible. I'm loving grey, as well... but the cool, fresh grey... not the drab grey... just the way you captured it so perfectly. I'm hoping you do some inspirations including THIS grey... you do it so well!
