Current Obsessions | Winter Inspiration

I'm surprised really. I would normally be downhearted and dreary this time of year. I'm a fair weather type of gal so you can imagine how I feel when a good snow rolls around. The winter has not been kind to me in the past, but on the contrary, I am feeling an ample amount of inspiration these days. I have a hunch since these chilly days have prevented me from taking my normal amount of photos, it's been the source of my creating projects on a daily basis. It's been a really nice creative outlet, something I've realized I will always need in my life. Lately, I've been drawn to painting and catch myself automatically gallivanting straight to the paint aisles of every craft store I visit.

Here are a few muses that have inspired me these past few weeks. 
.e.n.j.o.y.
It is essential that this print ends up on my wall one of these days. 
If only I could have a sewing room just like so. I have a feeling I would spend all my days cooped up in its pretty lighting. 
I fell in love the moment I was introduced to DahliaDahlia Fashion is the creation of two sisters with exquisite style who pay attention to delicate details. I would be the happiest of girls if all of their dresses magically appeared in my closet. Confession: I'm secretly hoping my husband reads that last statement..
Speaking of prints, Mr. Nashgill's work has always had a soft spot on my heart. 
 Husband style at its finest. Last time I took a trip to Kansas City, Josh wasn't able to come with. Thankfully, we are planning a road trip there for Valentines Day so raiding the racks at H&M will definitely be on our to do list. 
I promise I won't mention her in every current obsession post. But let's all be honest, Zooey Deschanel is worthy to obsess over. A New Girl episode and a cup of peppermint coffee have become a frequent evening occasion for me.

Lastly, playlists like this have been a source of inspiration all their own. Here is a mini version of what my ears have been getting a dose of lately.
What has kept you inspired during these cold, winter months? xxo
