Pinterest In The Morning | 5

Blame it on the late October weather or the chilly fall mood, but lately I've been feeling a real pull to the outdoors. I want to hike, take a road trip, and visit a chilly beach, most preferably in the company of some fleece outerwear, a sturdy capBean boots, and a thermos full of tomato soup. And a dog.

Here are a few of the Pins (and Instagrams) that have inspired my desire to take it outside:

Feeling feelings lately for lovely nudes and peach tones mixed with brighter blues. I blame it partially on this Julie White shirt, which is all sorts of beautiful with its perfect blue flower detailing.

Either way, here are a few of my favorite finds from my recent caffeine-fueled morning Pinterest sessions:

Maybe it's the summertime weather, or inspiration I've pulled from designers like Hackwith Design House, ace & jig, and Darling Dexter, but something about natural textures and patterns has felt really right lately.

These textures feel natural and modern at the same time and I love it. Naturally I've been Pinning the crap out of them, particularly in shades of blue, white, and cream:

Lately I've felt inspired by cotton sundresses, plants, chambray, back porches, and popsicles. 

The past week has been warm and sunny in London, so I've been making the most of it by spending as much time on our little back porch (aka second floor flat balcony) as possible. It may not be a big, lazy screened-in porch, but it's our garden and a spot in the sunshine. 

To celebrate the warm weather, here are a few images that have been getting me all kinds of excited lately. I can almost hear that screen door slam.

Because I often work from home, I'm lucky that I can spend my mornings drinking coffee and obsessing over Pinterest rather than commuting. (That part is glamorous – many other things about working from home or freelancing are, I assure you, not.)

I spend many a morning on a caffeine-fuelled Pinterest-athon where I come across things that inspire me to the point that I sometimes actually respond aloud with joy. Luckily, the only person that would be able to hear me is Bowtie and, well, he's a teddy bear.

Since (sorry) Pin-spiration is kind of endless, I've decided to start sharing a few of my favorites with you folks. Hope you get as much audible joy out of these as I do!

And on that note, what kind of Pinner are you? A morning-with-coffee pinner, an on-the-couch-with-wine-at-9pm pinner, a weekend pinner? Or maybe you're a bit more strategic. Either way, I'd love to know!
