Now that everyone has enjoyed the long (but not long enough!) Memorial Day weekend, I’m sharing the final America-inspired post celebrating one of my favorite color combinations: red, white and blue. While I don’t consider myself overly patriotic or “pro-American,” I do love the way these colors look together. So bold and graphic! I’m especially a sucker for anything vintage relating to Americana and politics. So get into all red, white + blue – and let’s celebrate the official start of summer with this collection of images. Get into it!

Continuing with my series of American-themed posts celebrating Memorial Day, today I’m sharing an “American Summer” collection/mood board of images I put together for a work project. One of my favorite parts of the design process is gathering inspiration. I love grouping seeming unrelated images and creating stories that speak to a theme or concept. This practice is used heavily in fashion when designers create mood boards for upcoming collections. I blogged about a few fashion week mood boards I found a while back. So get into this American Summer collection – and see more images on my Pinterest Board here. Happy Memorial Day!
