Welcome to U Inspire Me! Things I see in everyday life constantly inspire me—color combinations, bold patterns, unique orientations and juxtapositions. It was tough for me to find just one thing for today’s post but I keyed in on an item from one of my favorite stores Anthropologie. It is always a treat for me to shop in this amazing store, especially as there isn’t one where I live. Probably the best thing for my bank account!
I found this fabulous apron on their site:
I love this unique color combination and the fabulous example of colorblocking. This is what I came up with:

Thanks for stopping by and have a fabulous week.
