I knew I recognized this gorgeous coat dress that Kate Middleton wore to the Queen’s annual garden party.

Meredith Liberty, Natural Elements, fashion writer and stylist extraordinaire feature it right here on my humble blog in this post on March 21. Wow, Meredith, I’m amazed. But at the same time, would expect nothing less.
Natural Elements on March 21.
The coat dress can be dressed up or down. So versatile. Guess it should be since it costs ~1800.00.
Here’s another picture of the glowing and sophisticated princess.

Update: Thanks to Meredith for providing a link to the same look for less. Over on Zara.
From Zara. Retails for $99.90.
Have a great day readers. xoxo, Ashley
Ugh, I’m still sick. The Baby G is sick & Big G has a scratchy throat. We are a disaster. My head is in the clouds. I guess I’m suffering from a

hangover. Working on a basement unveil post. Hope to have that ready for first part of next week.
This past Friday I took off work to work on a fundraiser for Sweet Chas’s school. I had a bunch of tasks to complete before Saturday’s Home & Garden tour. One of those tasks took Caro and I to Clarendon, a neighborhood in Arlington, where I snapped some of these neat pics. Enjoy!
Miss Lady, who Baby G now refers to as simply ‘Lady’, in front of B&N and a fountain. Isn’t she photogenic.

Pretty shorts at Ann Taylor Loft and yes, I resisted.
Saturday night Big G and I had a date night at an Asian restaurant in Clarendon. Busy but fun weekend.
Until tomorrow, xoxo, Ashley

Can you tell I love turquoise or Robin’s Egg Blue. It’s heaven.
We’ve had two straight weeks of teacher appreciation week. First Chas’s teacher, who is amazing and now Miss Lady’s teacher who is equally amazing. This Friday we’ve decided to collaborate and present Miss Lady’s teacher with a fresh fruit basket, including some cheeses, crackers, and nuts. Everyone is contributing.
Something along these lines but more organic;

Would love to hear any ideas you may have to celebrate the people who play such a huge role in our children’s lives. xoxo, Ashley
Here are some pictures from my Pinterest board called ‘Antlers Everywhere.’ You can follow me by clicking here. I promise I’m not a crazy pinner so I won’t clog your feed with tons o’ pins.
Check out the natural antlers clustered on the mantle. Perfect with the other natural elements in the room–wood and the magnolia blooms.

Love this mount over the desk. The scale of the vignette is perfect.

Love the glammed up white antler chandy. Here’s a close-up.

These antlers remind me of this Natural Elements centerpiece. Available here.
Hope you have a smooth Wednesday. Mine is going to be crazy busy! When this week is over, I will need a vacation. Don’t forget about Tuckahoe Home & Garden tours for all the DC area readers.
Again, I’m not talking Warren Buffett or Mitt Romney. This is a real fat cat. See others fat cats here.

Have a great Tuesday and if you get sad, just look at this guy.
My too cool for school six year old wouldn’t take a Mother’s Day pic with me. But I got one with the babies.
Miss Lady & me.
The Baby G & me.
Mother’s Day is always bittersweet for me. Remembering my momma.
Hope, me, & my mom Gray Webb Hurt (1948-2010) at the Breakers in 2009.
Going to try and come up with some good stuff for the blog this week. xoxo, ashley
Good news on our friend “Baby Stephen” as my kids call him. Read all about it here.
Miracles of all sizes happen everyday.
I’ve written about our dear friends Lindsey & Bill Schwartz and their son, Stephen, before. Bill is Chas’s godfather. Well, today is a HUGE day for them. Stephen is set to receive the gift of life, a kidney. To read Stephen’s entire story, click here. One of Bill & Lindsey’s friends started this FB prayer flash mob. Apparently you write the individuals’ names on your hand to remember to pray for them all day. Great idea–the Callen family is on board.
Please join us in praying for a safe & successful surgery for Sweet Superman Stephen & his donor, Kristin.
