The beginning of a new month brings with it the latest installment of our inspiration-focused blog series: Read, Watch, Wear, Eat, Do. Every month, we’ll be sharing our most stylish and influential finds in those five categories, ranging from creative recipes to wardrobe essentials. Here are five things we’re loving for March, from the season’s brightest colors for your closet to inspiration for getting back outside.
Floret Farm’s Cut Flower Garden: Whether you’re a seasoned green thumb or a complete novice when it comes to gardening, there’s plenty to love about this book from Washington flower farmer Erin Benzakein. It’s a surprisingly approachable guide to growing and harvesting more than 175 varieties of stunning, bouquet-ready flowers, packed with firsthand knowledge that Erin has gathered over the years on Floret Farm. Even if a flourishing garden isn’t in your future, the incredibly lush and colorful photography will make this book a favorite on your shelf.
Oscar Winners: The Oscars may be over, but there’s a good chance that you haven’t had time to watch all of this year’s award-winning films. If winter weather is lingering where you are, use your time indoors to cozy up on the couch with a few great movies. We especially loved meditative drama Roma, nail-biting documentary Free Solo, and quirky period piece The Favourite. Want to keep track of what you’ve seen? Here’s a complete list of the winners.
Spring Pastels: With countless weddings and Easter celebrations on the horizon, the start of spring is the perfect time to infuse your wardrobe with some fresh color. Draw inspiration from the season’s flowers and sweets with a few new pastel pieces for spring occasions. We’re loving shades of robin’s egg blue, daffodil yellow, and rosy pink.
Asparagus: March marks the beginning of a new growing season, so we’re eagerly awaiting the arrival of the first fresh produce at the farmers’ market. Asparagus is ready to harvest before almost any other spring vegetable, and we can’t wait to start cooking. When you dig into fresh asparagus, you’ll enjoy some great health benefits; this early spring veggie is rich in fiber, folate, and vitamins A, C, and K. Need some inspiration for cooking with asparagus? Here are a few recipes to get you started!
Grow Something Green: After months of gloomy and grey scenes outside our windows, there’s nothing we look forward to more than the arrival of spring greenery! Bring a little bit of the spring garden indoors by adding a new houseplant to your space in March. These five options include low-maintenance favorites for novice gardeners; they’re also great for purifying the air in your home, so you can get a jump start on spring cleaning!
