NOW DECORATING || Baby Midgett’s Nursery Inspiration

The Now Stylebook Baby Midgett Nursery InspirationWhen I first envisioned our “gender neutral” nursery, I saw an all white space with white furniture, a few neutrals and metallics. I wanted it to be super clean, tranquil and as much as I  LOVE animals, I wanted to keep those to a minimum. But then I realized, this is a baby’s room…why am I trying to make it look like a spa?! And how tranquil is a room with a screaming baby and probably a sobbing mom  really going to be anyway? I still want a clean space infused with soft textures, white and metallics a la Christine’s gorgeous nursery {image 1}, but I need to add more personal touches! Oh, and then I saw this jungle themed mobile on Etsy and the animal floodgates opened!

And speaking of Etsy, both the light fixture above {similar to the one I bought} and the armadillo head can be found on Etsy too! Ugh I just love that site so much. You can literally find anything and the sellers are always helpful! I’m waiting to do bedding and art after baby is born so we can add pops of color. I fell in love with the city illustrations from Rifle Paper {seen in image 5}, so I bought the cities that baby has already “visited” for the bathroom. While we still have a ways to go, I cannot wait to see the finished product!! And I’ll definitely share pics when we’re done!!

If you’ve been a follower of this blog, you may have heard …err read about my obsession with outerwear. Actually “obsession” is downplaying it. I have a sick addiction alright? I hoard coats, I try on my leather jackets when no one is around and I spend way too much on ones that most likely aren’t “needed” per se, but you never know when a blizzard will hit Dallas. It has been known to happen. Anyway, my latest “fix” has been the blanket coat. When I first saw the magical turquoise and pink plaid version at Delpozo and the highly coveted monogrammed poncho at Burberry, I had out of body experiences. I couldn’t think of a better trend for me this fall. You can be completely cozy in a blanket out of the house and not look like a total weirdo!  But not everyone “invests” in coats like I do, so I’ve found versions for every budget! So join me in my addiction, won’t you!!

The iconic Stan Smith, Adidas’ tennis shoe from the ’70’s was relaunched earlier this year and everyone from Phoebe Philo to Pharell can be seen sporting them. I’ve been on the fence about getting some because I wasn’t sure I could pull them off, but after seeing how fashionistas have styled them, I’m ready to try them out. Plus I’m allllll about comfort for fall and winter so sneakers are an essential. I plan on wearing them with maternity leggingsdenim and cozy knits. So, what do you think? Would you try Stan Smith’s out?
