Chartreuse -- A.K.A. Bright Yellow - Green

Today's inspiration board is another non-traditional color choice, but I'm digging it. I think I'd call this color chartreuse:

I was inspired by the totally adorable dress that I found on J. Crew. It could be a sweet bridesmaid dress, a rehearsal dinner dress, an engagement party dress, even a "Let's run down to the courthouse and get hitched!" dress. I love the ruffle, the bow, and the details on the sleeves. It comes in several cool colors, but I think this one is funky and fresh. (Funky fresh? Really?) Okay, so how's this -- today's board is sponsored by the letter F because it's fun, feminine, flirty, funky and fresh! YEAH!

The shoes I used on the board are also by J. Crew, but I found a couple other pairs that I like with the dress. Seriously, could be my downfall. Just click on the shoe to get their details.

I love the fiddlehead ferns (I told you, sponsored by the letter F) in the bouquet to balance out the light and bright colors of the flowers.

The clematis boutonniere is also a sweet idea. I'm a fan of clematis and I think this is the first one I've seen used that way.

On a final F-related note: My fiance has finally finished school! He had his last final today. He graduates on Saturday! HOORAY! Way to go, baby! I'm so proud of you!
