Transform Your Scarf Into A Cover-Up

Scarves have provided me with an easy way to vamp up and accessorize my maternity wardrobe. While shopping at one of my favorite boutiques in San Clemente, Lincoln Street Boutique (they always have an amazing selection of scarves), the always stylish shop owner showed me this neat way to transform my favorite scarves into a vest or cover-up! Follow these instructions for a quick way to cover-up your favorite swimsuit or add some flair to an everyday look:

Step 1: Using a LARGE scarf, fold in half lengthwise and loosely tie the ends of one corner to form two “bunny ears”.

Step 2: Fold again and pinch a small section of fabric on top of the “bunny ears” to form a third “ear”.

Step 3: You should now have three “bunny ears”, tie the two previous ears tightly over the third to secure – that’s it!

Summer Bugs

Our household was rocked this past week with a nasty summer stomach bug… making its inevitable pass through most of us. I thought stomach bugs only occurred in the winter!?! Now that everyone is starting to get better, we have been diligently working away on Adella and Nolan’s new bedroom design. Eventually they will share a room, and it’s been a challenge finding gender neutral pieces that suit both of their personalities. Adella is as girly as they come, and wants EVERYTHING pink! On the other hand, Nolan is all boy (minus the occasional dress-up and make-up sessions that Adella puts him through) and he likes to play rough with his trucks and trains. But, I think we’ve come up with a good plan for the room… they’re already excited about the bunk beds!
We have the habit of starting multiple projects at a time; so, we decided to take some time away from all the craziness to enjoy an early evening out. Sometimes stepping back from a big project and putting it aside for a night helps us regenerate. It also gives me an opportunity to pull something fun from my closet!
