Current Inspiration

I've always been the person who cuts her magazines up to make collages of the outfits she aspires to wear or the places she wants to go or the things she wants to bake. But I stopped in college because I barely had time to read a magazine and it just felt different. Why cut things out that I didn't have time to bake or wear or visit? But now I'm back at it...just a little less chaotic than my previous versions. This time I'm only picking, almost, full magazine pages that inspire me based on the photos they hold or they layouts they use. Then I'm taping them to a wall — with painter's tape — that nothing else would fit on because it's too narrow. And let me tell you, I'm loving it. There is something so exciting about creating an inspo wall...every time I see it I want to sit down at my desk, crack open my laptop and boot up Illustrator or InDesign. 
So, I thought I would share with y'all some of the magazine pages/post cards/other items that are gracing my wall at the moment. Clearly, I'm liking heavy black accents and artful flat-lays. What are some of your current favorite design trends? Do you have an inspo wall too? - xoxo darling, Hayden

Favorite Painting

Let me start my saying this probably isn't my all-time favorite painting, but I do love it and when I was scouting locations I knew it would be perfect for this paticular outfit. I bought this top back in December during Vlogmas and I think it so great for spring! Also, it was my first Anthro clothing purchase, and I got it for less than $10 so I was proud. But doesn't it seem great for the spring season? It's short-sleeved, bright red, stripes and embroidered with flowers. I like it with jeans or shorts and just a simple Jack Rogers sandals. The exact top isn't on ShopStyle, but I found some similar options if you don't feel like snatching up that Poshmark option. What do you think? - xoxo darling, Hayden

Week Re-Cap

The Pigott fam bam loved Croatia.
Well what a break I just had. Croatia was absolute magic, seriously, we loved it. There will be plenty of blog posts about what we did, where we ate, etc coming soon so these photos are just a few snapshots I've collected. 
Now onto the disastrous way I got home and why I'll never fly Croatia Airlines again. Sunday I had a 7:50am from Split to Munich that had mechanical issues so they deplaned us, we went back to the terminal and then they wouldn’t tell us anything. Some people were getting rebooked for later connecting flights, but not me, then we passed the time of my connection in Munich, then at 1pm they canceled my flight to Munich. I immediately called United and rebooked the trip for the next day (Monday) but went up to Croatia Air and demanded they fly me to Munich Monday night because the Split airport only has 4 gates and I couldn’t stay in Croatia anymore with out going insane, so they did and I ended up spending a little over 12 hours in an airport with no hot food. But then I flew to Munich and got to spend the night in Germany — a new country for me. I went downtown, saw some of the beautiful buildings, drank a giant beer and yeah...I guess it kind of worked out. 
This week I have some plans but mainly I'm just trying to take it easy and get over my jet lag - xoxo darling, Hayden.

The roomie and I recently watched Sabrina and then Charade and it got me feeling in an Audrey mood. And now that I'm looking at these photos, a Grace Kelly state-of-mind as well. We all know I love a good bandana ascot (here, here, here, here, here, here, here, here), but I was struggling for a way to style this paticular one — I bought it at this brewery in Austin. But one morning I just grabbed it, tied it really tight (not how I normally wear a bandana) and went to work. And I got so many compliments. Somehow the small blue dots on the bandana worked well with this flowing shirt I got at Old Navy a few years back (see og post about it). I kind of love the whole outfit and I'm thinking it will make a lot of apperances this summer — and maybe a version with sandals and shorts instead of the jeans and loafers. What do y'all think? - xoxo darling, Hayden
We took these photos at a Post Office building, here's the address: 915 S Logan St, Denver, CO 80209

Quotes of the Week

The above quote seems apropos to how I'm feeling just about now. After having the most amazing Croatia trip with my parents, a wonderful lazy Saturday and being uber prepared for my 7:50am flight on Sunday, everything came crashing down. My first flight was cancelled three hours after my flight home left Germany and I got the world's biggest migraine while trying to extract myself from Croatia, but you know what — it all worked out. I flew to Munich on a 5:30pm flight, my mom lovingly booked an amazing Hilton airport hotel (holy moly, I could write a whole post on the shower...I used it twice in like 12 hours) and I got to explore a bit of Munich, bringing my total country total to 10 countries visited. While it 1000% sucked yesterday, I woke up this morning feeling ready to slay the day. And like the quote below says, let the good times roll - xoxo darling, Hayden
P.S. Don't think I'm not still incredibly angry with Croatia Airlines, they and the whole Star Alliance team will be receiving a letter.

Croatia Vacation Break's the deal, I don't want to take a break on the blog for the next two weeks, but I think it is for the best. But I will have SO much content coming for you when I get back because there is a real lack of info about Croatia out there for us Gen Z-ers. Like where to eat, what's Instagramable, etc. You can follow me on all my social media, as I'm sure I'll be updating that on the reg (@hautetable & @haydenpigott). I will see y'all soon and I hope you have a great couple of weeks - xoxo darling, Hayden.
