Nursery Update

We made a few changes to Ford's room and now I can officially say the nursery is done (see nursery reveal here)! First, we added acrylic bookshelves (16" long) in the narrow wall space by the bathroom. These are actually greeting card displays but work perfectly! I discovered them on Momma Society's blog. The shelves tie in nicely to my acrylic desk chair (budget friendly version).  I put some of the nicer hardbacks on the upper shelves for safe keeping. 

Next, we switched out the egg & nest prints for the framed limited edition Hermes scarf. I love the prints but this was the plan all along. I purchased it several years ago with the intention of hanging it in a future nursery. The scarf shows all the Texas wildlife. A deer family (can you spot the fawn?) is the focal point which made it perfect for Ford's nursery!

Finally, Amy Vance of Eco Modern Concierge organized Ford's closet. Originally, this was Scott's closet. Amy relocated his clothes to "my" closet in the master bedroom. We now split the closet 50/50 and it has worked surprisingly well (so far!). I purchased these baby velvet hangers and clothes dividers and Amy hung all the clothes by size. We generously received a ton of clothes for Ford's first year at showers and hand-me-downs. The closet is the size of a linen closet. To increase storage, Amy suggested shelves on either side beneath the clothes so Scott built and installed them. They now hold extra diaper pail bags, diapers & wipes, and stuffed animals. Not pictured is an elfa shelf for shoes, play clothes, hats & bibs.

Dressed Up Ripped Jeans

I finally made it out to Sugar & Cloth's color wall. It's a blogger's dream with colors spanning the rainbow and the perfect backdrop for my new white jeans. I wear white jeans all the time in spring & summer. I have 3 pairs! So this year I diversified my collection with a ripped pair. I love the slight edge they add. Size note: Not sure if it's post-pregnacy or just how they run but I ordered one size up. I also recently purchased my first pair of white heels. I'm generally not a huge fan of white heels but this pair with the nude mix and tassels sold me. Unfortunately, it's sold out in most sizes but I found this pair similar in style. They also come in black & white. My tassel earrings are from last year but J.Crew came out with almost the same earring again this year and in several great color options! Have a great week! This is my last week before returning to work so trying to make the most of it.

Embroidered Top

Feliz Cinco De Mayo! Hope you enjoy a margarita today! I'm wearing my second Mi Golondrina embroidered top (remember this one?) which was a birthday gift from my sweet sister. The light grey color gives it an updated feel and pairs perfectly with my purse. The loose fit also makes it a great postpartum top ;)

Size note: this top is an XS and fits like a top, while my first one is a size S and I wear it as a top and a cover up.
