Does anyone else feel like it’s Sunday?? Ahhh… how we love long holiday weekends. We had a fun-filled 4th of July yesterday, yet somehow we still have two days to have fun!! We think that the short American work-week has everyone feeling extra inspired because our favorite blogs were bursting with beautiful posts and bright ideas. Here’s what we’re loving most:

This patriotic engagement shoot, shared on Inspired by This, is maybe the cutest thing we’ve ever seen. Somehow, this real life couple looks just like a Ralph Lauren ad, and we’re loving how much thought was put into the details of the shoot- from wardrobe to location. There are even adorable snacks!

If you’re looking for a fun DIY this weekend, we suggest visiting House of Earnest. Erin put together a really cool tablecloth using surprising materials, and it is absolutely perfect for al fresco dining. We think we’ll be making one of our own in a soft blush hue.

When it’s super warm outside, there are few things better than a refreshing, cool treat. Mara (the blogger behind M Loves M) created a Berry and Mint Float that is absolutely delicious. We may have had 2 yesterday.

Anna of La Boheme has a knack for finding beautiful and unique homes to share each week. On Monday, she introduced us to a stunning Australian abode with a to-die-for master suite. The home has so much character, impeccable design, yet is still totally livable. A perfect combination!

We’re off to enjoy the rest of the weekend, but as always- please leave your favorite links in the comments below. And as a friendly reminder, don’t forget to enter the Cuyana Weekender giveaway!! Made with premium Turkish cotton and leather, who wouldn’t want this gorgeous bag for weekend escapes? Good luck!!
