Life With Betty: Signs of Spring

Life with Betty | Signs of Spring

Hi Buttercream lovers! Are you as happy as I am that it’s spring? I’ve been waiting for what feels like an eternity for this glorious weather! Being cooped up in the house all winter has had its struggles and it is time to open up those windows, do some spring cleaning (well put away the kids’ snow pants at least) and welcome a new season with a fresh start!

If I’m going to be completely honest, handling multiple schedules, ensuring the house is clean(ish), getting the kids fed and arriving to work on time actually isn’t the hard part. The hard part is putting my needs in front of everyone else’s. Don’t get me wrong, being a mom is amazing, but what they don’t tell you in those glorified parenting books (I read them all) is that motherhood is the equivalent of doing the work of thirty people, for free. We’re basically superheroes.

When I do get free time (what’s that?), I often opt for Netflix and what I like to call “Mommy’s sippy cup.” You get the idea. So yes, there is nothing better than this moment of “me time.” The air is crisp, the baby is sleeping and, let’s not forget, my coffee is hot – which is a HUGE win in itself.

It’s so wonderful to actually have some free time. Well, I’m pretty sure I do, unless I’m forgetting something.

Remember ladies, take time to smell the tulips, breathe in the fresh air, and wear cute clothes.

How to Style Your Blanket Scarf This Spring

If the thought of packing up your blanket scarves this spring is giving you serious separation anxiety, you’ll be happy to know that Buttercream Clothing just launched a whole new line of blanket scarves that you can enjoy into spring and beyond!

A blanket scarf can make the transition from your winter wardrobe into your spring wardrobe a lot less awkward. They are one of the most versatile accessories that a girl can own! Depending on the weather, you can wear your blanket scarf as a poncho, cape, shawl, or (you guessed it) a blanket!

Here are some of our favourite tips on how to wear your blanket scarf this spring.

On those cool, crisp mornings, create a super chic look by loosely draping your blanket scarf over both shoulders. For added style points, add a cute pair of heels, an adorable hat, or your favourite pair of sunnies.

Create the popular infinity look by tying the ends of your scarf together and wrapping it around your neck.

For a more casual vibe, drape your blanket scarf across your neck and leave both ends hanging freely.

Our blanket scarves pair perfectly with our Buttercream leggings and our adorable dresses! Shop our new collection today!

Life With Betty: Mom Luxuries

Mom Luxuries | picture of Betty Buttercream in the ShowerHello, lovely ladies! Betty here; welcome to another day in the life of Betty Buttercream. I’m delighted you are here! You really did catch me at a good time. I’m just taking a moment to soak up one of life’s luxurious, little moments.

I know I can’t be the only mom who looks forward to rising before the sun in a quiet household to enjoy a rare, but precious, minute alone. Between my husband’s snoring and Baby Buttercream fussing all through the night, the silence sounds oh so sweet!

I can’t get enough of the soothing, warm water. I wonder if anyone would notice if I just stayed here all day? Hmm, probably…this is Life with Betty after all. I can’t help but smirk, sigh and soak up the perfectly serene silence. No noisy kids or the drumming of a busy life; only a few birds chirping along with the water as it splashes about.

Ahh, it’s the simple things. No matter how short and sweet, the peace and quiet can’t be beat. Soon the house will be stirring, and the wonderful chaos will resume. I guess that means it’s time for me to slip on my adorable Buttercream Clothing Organic Scarf and Summer Swing dress because who doesn’t want their clothing to match their go-with-the-flow outlook on life?

It may only be a moment, but it was a luxurious moment – a moment I hope all of you delightful ladies can enjoy from time to time.

Thank you for relaxing with me and basking in one of life’s simple treasures.

Guest Post – Not Too Casual Fridays

This blog post originally appeared on Lindsey’s Listed and was republished with permission.

Hey everyone!

So I wanted to put together a look that was super comfortable, super easy but still looked dressed up! Leggings are everyone’s best friend trend right now, and for the very foreseeable future, so they were a natural to incorporate. The top is a multi wear piece that I blogged about here showing three different ways to wear it, and by wearing it as a dress and folding the top down, I’ve created the fourth way now to wear it! Awesome!

So the top is the 3-in-1 poncho from Buttercream Clothing, an ethical fashion company that is well known for their loungy styles and soft fabric choices. It comes in a few different prints, so there are lots to choose from. It drapes beautifully whichever way you decide to wear!

The leggings are the Falling Leaves print from Lone Wolf Boutique, another Canadian ethical fashion brand. Their selection of prints is outstanding, and there is something for everyone. They are nice a thick and wear really wear. I find them very figure flattering!

I wore a pair of heels from Michael Kors to keep a dressy feel plus a cute little amethyst choker. This will be a great outfit for spring and can be topped with a nice denim jacket for cooler day.

About Lindsey

Lindsey was born and raised in Edmonton, Alberta, Canada. She grew up wanting to do something creative with her life, something a bit outside of the system. In her teenage years, she dreamed of fashion design and had a taste for beautiful things and finding things that accented a body, a room, a piece of furniture just the right way. It wasn’t until her early twenties that she began to teach herself to sew, and while she enjoys the odd project, she finds it just as satisfying to admire the work of other creators. She started her website as a way to share her passions with the world and to give a glimpse into her little life. To learn more visit: http://lindseyslisted.com/.

Happy International Women’s Day! #BeBoldForChange

 International Womens Day | picture of Buttercream Clothing modelsInternational Women’s Day is a global day celebrating the social, economic, cultural and political achievements of women.

In our humble opinion, all women are exceptional, and each of us has a unique gift to offer the world. Maybe you’re a lawyer who values justice above everything else. Maybe you’re a selfless mom with a heart of service who always puts her family first. Maybe you’re an extraordinary singer, or an exceptional musician. At Buttercream Clothing, our gift just so happens to be soft and sweet clothing that feels like butter on your skin.

However, the Buttercream brand is about so much more than comfortable clothes. As said by Anne Klein, “clothes aren’t going to change the world, the women who wear them will.” Don’t you love this quote? We couldn’t resonate with it more!

There is no better day to celebrate and recognize our extraordinary customers and delightful tribe of radiant, confident women. You inspire us every day. Without you, Buttercream Clothing wouldn’t be as sweet!

This year the theme for International Women’s Day is #BeBoldForChange. Whether you’re challenging stereotypes, embracing inclusive leadership, or fighting to redefine the status quo, every action matters.

How will you #BeBoldForChange?

  • Challenge bias and inequality
  • Campaign against violence
  • Forge women’s advancement
  • Celebrate women’s achievements
  • Champion women’s education

Today, and every day, #BeBoldForChange by taking groundbreaking action that truly drives boundless change for women. Together, we can band together, put our intentions in action, and unleash our limitless potential for women all around the world.

Introducing, Betty Buttercream!

Life with Betty | picture of Betty relaxing on the couch with her feet up

Hello gorgeous, I’m Betty Buttercream, and it is such a pleasure to meet you! I can’t begin to tell you how excited I am to invite you to follow along as I share small glimpses into my delightfully messy, sometimes chaotic, beautiful life.

I’ll be the first to admit that life isn’t always smooth as butter. Navigating through the waves of change can be hard. Luckily, we can always find beauty in the storm.

From the outside looking in, I may look sweet, stylish, and put together, but just you wait. As you get to know me, and the many dimensions of my life, you’ll learn that I’m winging it just like everyone else. I’m a work in progress, and an absolute masterpiece all intertwined simultaneously, and I wouldn’t have it any other way.

Trust me, I get that as women we face a lot of impossible expectations and mixed messages when it comes to how we should look, act and behave. Let’s let that go. Life is better when you’re having fun. So if you’re ready to stop taking yourself so seriously, let go of guilt and worry, and laugh at the obstacles along the way, join the club!

I can make you one promise and one promise alone: I will always keep it real. My hope is that you can find pieces of my story that relate to your own. Welcome to Life with Betty!
