Good Morning Lovies!

I am so excited to share a wonderful company with you today. Pink Blush offers some of the most adorable maternity clothes. I ordered a beautiful floral print maxi dress to wear for Easter, and when it arrived, I was head-over-heels in love with it! One of my biggest things lately have been maternity clothes that can grow with my bump, then transition into non-maternity later on. Versatility is key in the land of motherhood and Pink Blush has made it easier than ever to create a staple wardrobe with styles that can be worn during pregnancy into motherhood. I love that this dress has a wrapped waist. It allows for easy breast feeding once our little one arrives, but also is great for later down the road too!

After swooning over my new dress in a Monday Morning Coffee Post, Pink Blush reached out to me asking if I’d like to try out another beautiful dress. I really like the products they sell and shopped there on my own first- so I could not say “yes!” fast enough. Pink Blush sent me this cute maternity dress. I love how it is fitted to show off the baby bump in all the right ways. It is such a beautiful shade of saturated pink. I am planning on wearing it to my baby shower coming up next month in May.

White Elm Photography did such a great job with these maternity photos, don’t you agree? If you’re in the Central Ohio area give Natalie a call and tell her I said “Hi!”. She is also helping me with some fresh 48 hospital photos and our newborn shoot once baby arrives. You’ll be seeing some more of her amazing work soon enough!

Good Morning Lovies!

It has been getting colder and colder here in Ohio. I’ve finally caved in and pulled out all of my winter clothing. I always try to hold onto my summer goods until the absolute last minute, but man, it been so chilly that I finally caved. While I hate giving up on my short sleeves and dresses, I must admit I am excited to get layering!

 I’ve recently found an amazing boutique clothing store in Baltimore, Maryland that has such great pieces called Kelsey’s Kloset. If you’re not in the Baltimore area, have no fear! They have an amazing online store too! Winter clothing is so great because in my opinion the more layers you add, the better the look. One easy layer to add to just about any outfit is a good scarf. Kelsey’s Kloset Boutique sent me one of their brand new blanket scarfs and I am head of heels in love with it. I wanted to share it with you and show you four simple ways I’ve been incorporating it into my winter wardrobe!actually-ashley-blanket-scarft-style-four-ways-coverLook Number One: actually-ashley-blanket-scarf-style-drape-shawMy first look is a blanket scarf draped over my shoulders like a shawl.  This is by-far the easiest style, and is so simple to do! Simply fold the blanket scarf in half into a large triangle. Drape the triangle over your shoulders for a casual look. Another great style tip- try tying the ends in front of your body for a slightly more polished version (this also helps to prevent the scarf from slipping or moving!)

Look Number Two:actually-ashley-blanket-scarf-style-traditional-wrapThis second look is a timeless classic. Like the shawl style, fold your blanket scarf in half into a large triangle. Place the center of the triangle at the nape of your neck. Wrap the ends around your neck, and allow them to fall towards the front. I like to “Fluff” my scarf so it lays in a nicer shape. I like to separate the center of the triangle after wrapping it to show more layers.

Look Number Three:actually-ashley-blanket-scarf-style-traditional-tuck-ends Like the traditional style before, wrap your large folded triangle around your neck just like look number two. Instead of allowing the ends to flow freely, tuck them under for a more tailored look! You can also loosely tie the ends underneath to prevent them from becoming visible.

Look Number Four:actually-ashley-blanket-scarf-infinity-styleI am a sucker for a good infinity scarf- and you can transform any normal scarf into one! Start this one with the large triangle. Slowly start at the tip and loosely roll until you get to the end. Wrap the scarf around your neck twice. Tie the ends into a small knot to secure. Tuck the knot under the other layers to hide it! Voila- Infinity Scarf!

What do you think! All four ways are so simple but create different looks. Don’t have a blanket scarf? No worries, Kelsey’s Kloset Boutique is offering all of my readers 10% off of their entire purchase. Yes, that is your ENTIRE purchase- not just blanket scarfs!
