Ballgown With A Coffee Stain

BGWACS has evolved from my early ramblings covering my favorite topics, into a fashion and lifestyle blog. When I started BGWACS, I was a busy mom and full time Montessori Teacher. My husband encouraged me to pursue my passions by starting this blog and the rest is history! Ballgown With A Coffee Stain came from the idea that Life is Beautiful…Not Perfect.

Living a beautiful life and wearing beautiful clothes should be an opportunity to take chances, be bold, and make mistakes! We find our signature style and our heart’s true desires through exploration. I’m so excited that I now have a platform where I can share my affordable style and beauty finds, as well as home decor tips, tricks, and products with all of you!

When I’m not sharing exciting new outfits and beauty products, you will find me spending time with my husband and our two precocious girls. I’m also searching for new ways to tire out our crazy puppy!

I hope you enjoy exploring my site for helpful articles on fashion, beauty, and home decorating tips!

Welcome To My Site!

Hi, I’m Kristen Stuertz, creator of the fashion and lifestyle blog: Ballgown With A Coffee Stain. I’m a fashion lover, eternal nester, and undeniable failure at being a perfectionist. I started my blog in 2020 as an excuse to play with the things I love: feminine clothing, makeup, and decorating my home! Now BGWACS is the creative space where I can share all of my daily inspiration with you!

Growing up before the days of Pinterest, I would pour over magazines filled with feminine clothing and interior design. I loved creating beautiful spaces…much to my parents dismay. There were many barbie dolls and furniture pieces that had been given “makeovers” (or makeunders depending on who you ask) under my creative little hands.

Karma has certainly paid me back for my early years. I now have two very creative girls who have come up with many ways to decorate our house with their own masterpieces! My family now resides in Boise, Idaho. I love where we live and find inspiration from the natural beauty and aesthetics that surround my neighborhood. My feminine clothing style reflects the casual yet beautiful atmosphere of our quaint suburban town. Although we are close to our neighbors and the city, we’re lucky enough to be surrounded by rolling hills, tree lined walking trails, and trickling creek beds.
