Color inspiration is a monthly link up brought to you by Sharon from Mama Chit Chat and myself at The Whitney Michaels Blog. We would love for you to join and link up to share all the BLUE that is inspiring you this month! This is the second edition – if you missed the first you can read it here.
September is here and its full of changes. Changes in schedules, in the season, and the weather (hopefully). Over here in Southern California we are still in full summer heat and the girls and I are soaking up the last few weeks of the season. Blue is the perfect color right now.
BLUE | I bought this dress on clearance at the Gap when Aubrey was just a baby, and I remember thinking how big it was and that it would be so far away that she could actually wear it. Well that went quick, she’s already almost too tall for it! (obviously the dress isn’t online since I bought it so long ago, but this adorable dress with blue embroidery would perfect to add a denim jacket to and transition to fall – and there’s a sale right now!)
BLUE | In a perfect world, I would love to have a light colored couch! Cream, white…basically anything that would get destroyed by two toddlers. Since that obviously isn’t happening, I’m getting my fix in by updating our pillows. Our home decor is mostly neutrals, but I love adding blue around as an accent! I found a couple of burlap looking ones and navy blue at Marshall’s a couple of weeks ago and I love it. I think they can easily transition to fall with the addition of some orange and be good in winter too with forest green or red?
BLUE | Like the water. With Aubrey doing swimming lessons, she is always asking to go swimming at Grandma’s house! We are spending as much time as possible in the water while the weather is still beautiful enough for it!
BLUE | Speaking of the pool – let’s talk about how late I am to the “summer body” idea. I just did a post about my new found motivation and the cute Workout Essentials I bought and I’ve probably mentioned that for the past three years I’ve been either pregnant or breastfeeding and I’ve used that as an excuse to let myself indulge – actually I don’t even think it could be called that at this point. Indulging is something you do now and then. I just eat whatever and don’t move enough! But I’ve almost completely weaned Blake and I’m ready to feel strong, in shape, and to feel like I have some control of my body again! I pulled out our old box of “workout stuff” and popped in the p90x DVD earlier this week. And oh did it hurt so good. That program is a bit tough for me since the workouts are so long, and what mama has time for that?! I had noticed a friend of mine kicking booty and taking her health and fitness seriously (you can follow along with her too on Instagram) and she reached out to me at the perfect time! She’s going to be my extra push of motivation and accountability as I incorporate fitness back into my routine! I can’t wait to update you on what I think about the Beachbody workouts! They can be accessed anywhere and there are TONS of video and program options! (You can ask Mallory about any of the details – she’s super helpful! Or just jump in with her too here) Anyway, long story longer, this BLUE logo is going to be a big inspiration for me starting this month! I’ll share some of the fun on my InstaStories during nap time workouts!
I hope your September is full of inspiration and that you have an amazing end to your summer! BLUE is definitely my color and I loved sharing with you! Click the link below to add your BLUE post (open for a week) and we can’t wait to have you for all things BLACK and spooky in October!

With my first girl born I had the same as you had with your little girl. I saw a couple of clothes actually for a few years down the line and I bought them, thinking exactly like you…BIG! That’s 14 years ago now and these days she is looking through my closet once in a while. Well, that means I’m still a hip momma, right? 😀
