It’s become apparent to me that if I’m going to have any chance of leaving the house with a newborn in the dead of winter (living in Indiana), I’m going to need a good stash of simple go-to everyday baby blankets.
Searching for the perfect blanket accessory has proven to be way more difficult that it would first appear, as most of my choices seem to be kitschy or only offered in the light blue and pastel pink variety.
A few characteristics I search for when shopping for baby anything: Classic patterns, simple styles, and functional. Really, is that too much to ask?
I’ve been on the hunt, and I’ve found a small handful that have fit the bill.
