2. Mara Hoffman Inspired Swimwear: When Lala first spotted this Old Navy swimsuit on Instagram, she knew it had to be hers. As a girl who appreciates both bright colors and bold prints (which are often present in Mara Hoffman's designs), she knew she had to add this budget friendly swimsuit to her wardrobe. She purchased the balconette top and matching bottoms, and couldn't have been happier when they arrived in last week!! Now she just needs warm weather to flaunt her new suit! Find Lala's new swimsuit on the Old Navy website.

3. Edge Painting: A printing technique our entire team has been having fun with lately is edge painting! What exactly is edge painting you ask? It's simply what the name implies: painting the edge of an invitation with color. We think it's a really fun way to incorporate a fun pop of color, without overloading a design with a ton of color. Also, it's a great way to incorporate a "modern twist" to something traditional like a wedding invitation. Recently, we shipped out a wedding invitation ensemble with all of the edges painted in black...which really was the "cherry on top" of an already fabulous invitation. Check out some of our favorite edge painted designs below.
For Michelle and Kevin's wedding invitation, we kept the design simple and elegant. Printed in traditional letterpress, the couple wanted to add a fun, modern twist to their invitation, so we decided to paint the edges gray! For more of M&K's Chicago Trump Hotel Wedding, be sure to visit their real wedding gallery!
Here's the black edge painted invitation we recently completed! The black edging was the perfect finishing touch on this elegant, equestrian inspired wedding invitation!
The couple's coordinating wedding stationery also included black edge painting.
5. Tassels: From fashion pieces to home decor, right now we can't get enough of tassels!! This traditionally preppy accent is having a major moment, and we just can't get enough. Our love of tassels are even extending into wedding invitation design, as we recently designed an ensemble tied together with a tassel. We can't wait to share pictures!! Until then, we're loving these tassel trimmed accessories!!
Tassel printed loafers from our favorite J.Crew Factory! Super cute!
We love this tassel inspired necklace from Kendra Scott! It offers a bright pop of color!
The Jackie tassel necklace, also from Kendra Scott, can be easily layered and paired with other necklaces! So chic and cute!!
Wishing you all an amazing month of March!!
