1. Merchandising your Baby Girls Nursery Shelves

    Reese Gluck and Her nursery shelvesBaby Girl Nursery Decor Inspiration by Fashionable Hostess3

    Today I am excited to share a peek inside my little angel’s nursery. Since Reese is the princess of the household, I wanted her room to reflect it. While baby’s rooms can quickly become filled with clutter and excessive amount of toys, I avoided that by placing a neatly organized {and incredibly girly} display shelf directly across from the entry to her room so guests would immediately swoon upon entering. Read on to learn what my favorite pieces were in assembling the look!

    To start I chose a Pottery Barn Kids three tiered bookshelf {buy the bookshelf here for $299 plus free shipping!} and placed it directly across from the doorway. I decorated it with everything pink – from girly books, to our extensive piggy bank collection, to endless accessories. One thing to keep in mind is that this is a “display” shelf and is not everything we own. I hid away toys that didn’t match in the chevron bins on the bottom shelf, and books on a storage shelf in her closet.

    Once I selected which toys and books would work, I created little sections {I call them nooks} on each shelf. On the top left I placed tall stacked books and used the “Always the Princess” Piggy Bank as a book end. Then on the top right I did a cluster of different plush stuffed animals {all in shades of pink or cream} in a neat pile. As long as stuffed animals are piled together in a corner they wont look messy.

    On the second shelf I placed Reese’s jewelry box with a bedazzled piggy bank on top, and then in the center I placed Jonathan Adler Dachshund bookends {which I featured in my son’s nursery here} with mini sized books in between. On the bottom shelf I stuffed tons of extra messy toys in chevron Canvas Pop-Up Totes. Right alongside the totes I stacked more books but this time used blocks {I specifically chose the girly colored ones} as a book end. The biggest thing in making the end result appear organized was 1.Sticking with one color scheme, and 2.Keeping a bit of space between each section to avoid a cluttered look.

    The end result: the sweetest room that is perfect for my little nugget! Of course Reese loves to play with the lower shelves and move things around during the day, but it’s easy to clean up before bedtime {I sometimes even think I see her design wheels turning!}. We hope this inspired you to make your little one’s room equally princess worthy!

  3. 22 Month Toddler: Chilly Days

    Reese in Old Navy November styleReese in Old Navy #oldnavystyleThis Holiday season we are doing quite a bit of traveling starting with a week in Nashville to celebrate Thanksgiving. Because we only visit every few months, my mother-in-law always schedules a jam-packed week of visiting with every friend or relative in the city so she can show off the little ones. Knowing this is the agenda, I always want to make sure the babes look dolled up each day of the trip. In preparation, I picked up a couple of adorable Fall baby essentials to pack, like this Old Navy Tunic Sweater and Sherling Vest {other cute baby vest options since this one isn’t sold online are here and here}. Then for travel I always load up on Old Navy jersey leggings because they are so cozy and comfortable. And since they are solid they match back to any of her outfits! Stay in touch with our Nashville adventures and outfits on my instagram, Hope you and your families have a Happy Thanksgiving!
