My name is Nikki Helmholdt and I am the creator of Blushing Macaron! I have wavered on the idea of starting a blog for the past 2-3 years and I decided to finally take the plunge and go for it! As some of you might know I used to own an online boutique as a hobby for a creative outlet. I ended that venture earlier this year as I kept coming back to the idea of wanting to blog instead. After having my son, Beckett, in July I have been living a life of t-shirts and sweats with wearing spit up as daily accessory. This wardrobe isn’t what I envisioned for my life and I knew I needed to change. I am hoping to inspire fellow momma’s to up their style game and get out of the t –shirt and sweats (at least once in a while) and be the best you!
Blushing Macaron will be a lifestyle blog encompassing many topics from fashion to DIY projects!
Now, onto the fun stuff!
I LOVE fall time and everything it brings from leaves changing to getting to wear cardi’s and sweaters! We moved to Florida a little over a year ago and therefore we don’t feel fall until October or November. However, it is always cold inside so I still get to use my cari’s and sweaters. I live in this olive-green cardigan (similar here, or below)that pairs well with shorts or pants and olive is a fall staple. I paired it with a maroon sleeveless top from Express (got it last year, but linked something similar here) that has lace detailing on the front and my Tory Burch bag I adore. The cognac colored bag is no longer available but linked a similar options here. My jeans were a steal as I got them on sale during the Nordstrom Anniversary sale this summer along with my initial pendant necklace I wear almost daily.
Thank you all for taking the time to read my blog and I hope you will follow along on my journey. As always let me know if you have questions or would like me to blog about anything in particular!
