Floridian at Heart {Nursery Inspiration Board}

When I found out that Tangerine Tango was the Pantone Color of the Year for 2012, I was thrilled! As a third generation Floridian I navigate towards the bright spectrum of the color wheel. Tangerine is a bold color choice but for a child’s area it allows for creativity and a play on colors.

Enjoy this fun bright-colored nursery board!

1. Florida vintage prints get me every time. The word vintage + Florida flare and I’m sold. Find this little gem on Ebay- quick before it’s a goner!

2. Perfect pillow for your little sunshine.

3. Pop of color with these spectacular curtains from Urban Outfitters.

4. Show a little love for your babes birth state with these personalized prints from Rooted in Paper.

5. Can’t have a bright-colored room without an extremely bright-colored mirror! That would just be unfitting! Find this mirror {available in multiple colors} from Rosenberry Rooms

6. Tangerine shag rug- of course! Also found at Rosenberry Rooms.

7. I love the Sparrow crib by Oeuf because of its contempary and natural look. Why it’s a favorite it transitions into a toddler bed making it worth the investment!

Maternity Spring Style

1. Hatch Collection has maternity basics that can be dressed up for evening or simple chic for daywear. This Afternoon dress is perfect for Spring + Summer.

2. A clutch accessory item- sunglasses. I’m on my fourth pair of Ray Bans- I’d say I’m a little obsessed. Love the Clubmasters by Ray Ban. {Of course I have a pair!}

3. Butter London is a perfect nail polish for pregnancy- it’s non-toxic!

4. This wrap watch is amazing. It is the best of both worlds- a watch + bracelets. Check out La Mer Collection and browse the many different varieties of wraps.

Weekend of Style

I played the part of assistant apparel buyer for the past two days for my sister’s store, Anchor Boutique. We jumped from appointment to appointment with brands and perused over nine floors the size of football fields. My brain has yet to come of the fashion high!

Sister + Best Friend + Mom

Meet Stetson. He is eight-months old with a vibrant personality. This little guy loves his stuffed giraffe, the beach, and strolls in the Bumbleride. He has a special place in my heart because he is my sweet little nephew.

Laurel is a talented jewelry designer, shop owner of Anchor Boutique and mother to Stetson.  As her younger sister I’ve always looked up to her {especially for fashion and beauty advice} and to watch her as a momprenuer is inspiring.

Story of your store:

I was making jewelry out of my house and traveling a lot. It was time to take my business to the next step and have more of a professional presence. Not only did I open the store, I became a Mom shortly after. It was an exciting and crazy year!

Most surprising thing about parenting?

Even at your most sleep-deprived state, you still keep going. I never imagined that I could continue and manage to do everything with as little sleep that I get. It’s very surprising!

Craziest thing you’ve done sleep deprived?

Calling people by different names!

Favorite go-to baby product?

FuzziBunz, cloth diapers. After trying a few other brands these are perfect for Stetson. They are easy to clean and super soft.

Top 5 Tips for Moms:

1. Don’t be too afraid or proud to ask for help. Even if you just need a nap!

2. Hold them as much as you can while they are little.

3. Take them wherever you go. They’ll be social, well-behaved and not as bored.

4. Have date nights with you partner. So important to the relationship.

5. Talk to other moms. They have great advice!

A Spanish Inspired Nursery

Barcelona, Spain has a special place in my heart. I lived in Spain for a study abroad my last semester of college. On my daily walks to school from my apartment, especially during winter, it was fascinating to gawk at the impressive strollers. Oh and of course the amazing architecture that fills the city!

My Spanish adventures inspired this nursery board. Full of bright colors, architectural inspiration, and modern affixtures. ¡Disfruta!
