MAD FOR PLAID

If you've even stood next to a fashion magazine this year then, you know that plaid is bigger and better than ever! If you've opened a fashion magazine this year, then you know how incredibly versatile it is this season! Mixing prints, mixing styles...plaid isn't just for lumberjacks anymore and it's definitely not just for your old flannel shirts! This is one of our favorite plaid tunics of the season! It comes with a self belt and a million ways to wear it!

THE MAMA CLUB

As some of you know,  I am about to be a first-time Mom! With only a few weeks to go, I have hit panic mode... I am about to be a MOM and MOMS know how to cook! Growing up, my Mother was THE BEST cook... no really, the best.  Looking back, I'm not sure if our friends really wanted to hang out with my sister and me that much, or if they just came for  the food!  Either way, she was the hit of the neighborhood and I love that about her. Unfortunately, I did not inherit the Betty Crocker gene and am getting a late-in-life start at finding my way around the kitchen. Thanks to Pinterest, I am slowly learning and my husband is thoroughly enjoying all my recipe test runs. This is his latest favorite - Blueberry Breakfast Casserole.  Like Mama always said, you can't just follow the recipe. You have to eyeball it and taste it along the way. So, I tweaked the recipe I found online and wanted to share it with all of you. I hope you love it as much as we do!

P.S. If any of you Mamas would be so kind, as to share you favorite recipes with me, I would LOVE you forever! Shoot me an email at Amber@ShopBlueDoor.com. 

Much Love,
Amber 
Owner, The Blue Door (and Philip's Mama)


Blueberry Breakfast Casserole

1.5 cups fresh blueberries
4 eggs beaten
1/4 cup maple syrup
7 slices of loaf bread (any kind)
3/4 cup low-fat milk
1/3 cup melted butter
6 oz cream cheese (needs to be cold)
cooking spray

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Cut each slice of bread into 9 even squares. Cut cream cheese into small cubes.

Spray baking dish with cooking spray (I use a smaller square pan, approx 9x9). Place half of bread in bottom of dish. Evenly place cream cheese cubes and half of blueberries over the bread. Add remaining bread and rest of blueberries on top. 

Combine eggs, milk, maple syrup and melted butter. Pour mixture over the casserole, making sure to soak all the pieces of bread on top. 

Cover casserole with aluminum foil and bake for approx 50 minutes.When toothpick comes out clean, remove the foil.  I like to "squish" mine lightly, so that the blueberry juice squeezes out a bit and to make sure all the bread pieces on top are not dry. Return to oven until casserole browns on top. 

Serve warm, with optional maple syrup on the side and a dash of love.

NAVY, BABY.

 Must have color for fall? Navy. Must have color for life? Navy. Add this colorful aztec cardigan for a pop of color and girl, you've got it!

Which is why we love this navy dress...even if you're with baby!

"After seeing this dress on Stacy (our perfectly beautiful and tiny model) I thought there was no way I could wear it too! But she twisted my arm, made me try it on and I LOVED it! The loose, top layer covers any lumps or bumps (in my case, a rapidly growing baby bump) but the fitted "skirt" layer underneath still gives it shape, in the most flattering of ways! Also, it's not super short, so even at 5'8" I could still wear it with heels! And last, but not least, the knit fabric is extra thick, stretchy and buttery. In other words, it's ahhhmazing! Take my word for it, you're going to LOVE this dress!" 
-Amber Mordic



Amber is 7 months pregnant and rocks this dress like it was made just for her!

MAKING MORNINGS EASIER

Living in a world with Pinterest is the proof we need to validate the statement "there aren't enough hours in the day".  Mornings are hard enough without making that french toast casserole. In the afternoons, between meetings and carpool, nobody has time to make that hangable mason jar organizer. And in the evenings, Lord knows life is too busy for the all-natural face mask made from oatmeal and avocado. Life is busy and sometimes it's all we can do to pull together an outfit in the morning, which is where this little number comes in. Jacket, Layering tank, leggings. It's as simple as 1, 2, 3. Meet our newest addition from the Missy Robertson family, the "Missy Robertson Suede Jacket": making mornings easier since October 20, 2014.
Girl, treat yourself! You've earned it!

#ULTIMATEFASHIONISTASTATUS

A Pinterest account is the automatic beginning of a love/hate relationship. The inspiration is plentiful, but so is the wardrobe guilt. Every time I log in I see tons of cute outfits, many that I have willingly passed by during a shopping trip, that I wished I had added to my closet. Don't let today open the door for another case of wardrobe guilt. Add this Pinterest-worthy look to you life and wear it proudly! And then pin yourself on Pinterest. #ultimatefashionistastatus #blessed

#OOTD

Confession time: When the fall styles started rolling in, we got really excited for fall. When coffee shops started rolling out pumpkin flavored treats, we got really excited for fall. When football teams started playing, we got really excited for fall. When Stacy put on this outfit, we got really excited for fall. This outfit has been our our fall favorite so far because it is everything. It's comfortable, yet still chic. It's basic, but not boring. And most importantly, it has that VEST! Girl, go ahead and get you one!
