Random pretty overload won't hurt anyone

Is Monday a bummer or what? Raise your hands if you also struggled parting with the duvet early this morning. I couldn't be the only one! It's one of those weird "blah days" again when my bed feels a little bit more comfortable than usual that I'm almost tempted to call it a day off. If not for a new pair of candy-colored shoes, I'm so certain I would have stayed up in bed. I knew I bought this gorgeous flats for a reason! :)

I hate to admit this, but yes, sometimes pretty things do make me happy and they help me get up during tough mornings such as today. So with this,  I decided to play favorites today because I could really use some more inspiration. Here's some of my recent pretty favorites for added inspiration to hopefully shake our Monday blues away:

the dreamy photos that inspired my blog's header

really can't get enough of pretty floral garland headpieces

my color crush for this summer

two of my favorite illustrations by artist Oana Befort

love everything about this outfit, especially the coffee

this letter pretty much sums it up

but this is a much better and way more positive way to look at it

I really enjoy compiling lists like this one. "My day" does sound much more promising and positive than plain "Monday", doesn't it? Now I'm gonna grab myself a cup of coffee and claim this day mine. I hope your day is off to a good and productive start. Let's do this! Have an inspiring week ahead of you. :)

What's your Monday mantra?
