1. How would you define your homestyle?
A: I would say modern farmhouse
M: I would define my style as Mid Century Modern/Contemporary!
2. What is your favorite piece that you have right now?
A: Our Madden Jacket because it's so good for layering! It's the perfect thickness where you can wear a chunky sweater without feeling like you can't move.
M: My favorite piece is currently not out yet.. coming soon! I love our Evans Cardi - so cozy and soft and oversized without being bulky!
3. What are some easy ways to style some black Chelsea boots?
Chelsea boots are pretty much the new sneaker. They can be worn with anything to either dress up or dress down. We love the Chelsea boot with jeans, a tank (or sweatshirt) and throwing on a long jacket or cardi over. So cozy and warm. Chelsea boots also pair well with leggings (check out our new zella leggings)! If you're looking for a dresser outfit, here and here are some inspo!
4. Amber, have you started on the baby's room yet?
We haven't stared putting it together yet but Morgan helped us get everything picked out! Planning on doing a separate blog post at a later time to share the details.
5. What is your favorite season to shop for new inventory?
Fall for sure!!! We love all the cozy sweaters and the jackets!
6. Amber, are you taking maternity photos? What are you going to wear?
We don't have them until the beginning of January so I don't have my outfits picked out quite yet. I was thinking some sort of tight knit dress and then a long dramatic dress for a few of the pictures!
7. I can't believe Ash + Aspen will be one soon! Looking forward to the birthday celebration! What are some things you learned about business in your first year?
Looking back, the number one thing would be to expect the unexpected.. on all things! It has been and still is a learning experience as we navigate nailing down our target market and are becoming more confident in carrying inventory that fits our vision better! It is also very important to create great relationships with your community and other small businesses. We win together!
8. Are you going to get any more bottoms in soon?
We are still looking for the perfect pieces to introduce! It's tough with bottoms, they are so specific to body types. It's always easiest to try on store or at a pop-up, but we're working on it!
9. Any trips planned?
A: With the craziness of the next few months of holidays and getting ready for our baby, we are staying close to home until probably this summer.
M: Not planned yet but hoping to go to South Carolina to see my friend in grad school down there this spring!!
10. A little early but what are some things on your Christmas wish lists?
A: A new pair of slippers is on my list. I have a pair of ugg ones but they've seen better days. I also need some little house things still like a cheese cutter, mule mugs, more cutting boards, etc. Lastly, probably some new perfume! I recently bought a travel size of Juicy Couture and I've been liking that so maybe a full size bottle!
M: I am asking for a carpet cleaner, wine decanter, fun vases, a 48oz candle & a few other smaller things!
