Happy Mother’s Day!

Happy Mother’s Day to all the beautiful Mommas out there! I hope today you spend the time to thank your Moms for all they have done and continue to do for you! Both Lauren and I are incredibly close to our Moms and we feel so incredibly blessed to have them in our lives- I can’t tell you the amount of times my Mom has been there for me in more ways than one- the times in college I called her crying because I hated my roommate or when I called her before my first job interview asking for advice or how many swim meets she stayed with me ALL DAY and was cheering me on at the end of my lane.

My Mom is so special to me because not only is she there for me all the time, but she really is such an inspiration to me. She is beyond intelligent- starting her own business with my Uncle out of my parents garage. They’ve been in business for over 25 years- I look to her for business advice, for personal advice or just for a good laugh. She worked while both my brother and were growing up and yet she NEVER missed anything- she was at every dance recital, swim meet, baseball game and worked with us on the weekend with whatever school project we needed. She always made us feel special- always. I think back as to how much my Mom really did- and it’s amazing. She is my superhero and I love her beyond what words can express here. I love you Mom!!!

Joan (Lauren’s Mom) is equally as amazing as mine. She too worked while Lauren and her brother were growing up and never missed a beat. I can remember when Laur and I were playing water polo in high school and she never missed a game- always encouraging us to be the best we can. She has been there for Lauren so much in the past few months- we love you Joan!

We feel so grateful to have such amazing women in our lives.

Your Moms are all Superheros- they are. They juggle a million things at once and still make you feel like you are the most important thing in the world. Take the time today to really tell your Mom how much you love her.

These pics are from the girls trips my Mom (plus my cousin and my aunts) take every year- I absolutely love this time I get to spend with them and they are memories I will hold in my heart forever! We’re going again in June 🙂

Happy Mother’s Day!

Distressed Denim Skirts

Lately, we’ve seen so many celebrities rocking mid length distressed denim skirts- Kim K, Kylie J. and Jessica Alba just to name a few. Have to admit, at first we were skeptical, but they have grown on us! We’re totally WAiSTEDD on distressed denim skirts!
Our picks below are absolutely inspiration pieces (WAY over our budgets, but hey we can dream right?). We found some other great distressed denim on ASOS, Zara, Boohoo and Forever 21 that are much more in our price range.
Do you all like the distressed denim trend? Let us know below!

Marble

We usually see marble stone on countertops in kitchens and bathrooms and don’t think twice about it (unless you are remodeling your house of course). But when interior decorating and fashion collide we are blessed with an amazing print: MARBLE! This week we are totally WAiSTEDD on marble print for accessories, jewelry, handbags, and apparel!
Bold, sophisticated, and delicate, this print is a great add for your Spring wardrobe. This neutral print can add a pop to any outfit, without overpowering. We think this print looks great next to any color, so it is a seamless add for your wardrobe.
If you aren’t ready to commit to this print, try it out on your nails first! Fashion blogger Aimee Song showed us on Instagram how trendy this print can be as nail art.
Do you think you will try this print for Spring? What marble printed piece will you add to your closet?
Happy Wednesday! Have a lovely rest of your week!

Tan Sweater

Happy Friday everyone!!!

We are always looking for great layering pieces to have in our closet- they make for easy work to night pieces. I purchased this tan sweater from Aritzia about four years ago and it has been one of the best investments! I love the color and the shape. It is perfect in the winter for a great shell and awesome in the summer on a cooler night.

These sweaters are still available at Aritzia– they have a great selection of colors. I’m thinking about buying another, just debating on the color!

Hope you all have a great weekend!! XO Danielle

Hats & Healdsburg

Hi All! Did you guys have a good first day of Summer yesterday?? I hope you all celebrated with a great margarita or by the beach/ pool, I know I did. I just got back from an amazing trip to LA last week. Every Summer my Aunts, my Mom and my Cousin all go on an annual girls trip. We’ve been to so amazing places (Miami, New York, Chicago, LA) I feel so fortunate! I’m so lucky that we get to spend time together traveling every Summer- I have such great memories! One of my favorite things we did in LA (besides eat and shop) was seeing a taping of The Voice- are you guys fans of the show?!? I’m so in love with Adam and Blake. It was an incredible experience… I highly recommend going if you’re in the area. We got our tickets through 1iota– they were the best-the staff was so fun and nice! They also have tickets in NY as well for some late night shows- check them out!

Right now, I am currently in Healdsburg- my parents have some property up here. We’ve lucked out because the weather has just been perfect. It’s the place I love to go to when I need to relax, which I needed considering I start Summer school tomorrow- ew. Anyways, I’m totally loving this Madewell hat I bought last month. It was on sale and its just so perfect for shading my face during the Summer!

Lauren and I really love these vests as well. Regardless of the season, layering is so crucial and this vest is perfect for layering in Summer and will be perfect for the Fall. We’re also loving long gold jewelry right now- I mean what outfit doesn’t look good with some gold. These booties are the absolute best color and texture-I typically love to pair them with really feminine pieces but they look equally good with causal wear as well. Check out Sam Edelman for more fun booties, I think one of the best places to look would be at Nordstrom.

Graphics Tees in the Summer Breeze

During summer, we are all going a million miles a minute trying to get to the farmer markets, pool parties, and BBQs. So you need an easy outfit to transition from activity to activity. While we know there are MANY different outfit choices you can choose from, one of our recent loves are a graphic tee and a skort. We love this look because it has a little edge to it, but at the same time is totally appropriate for any event you may need to jump to. Here are the great parts about it:

1. You get to pick the graphic on your graphic tee- whether you are into a hamsa sign, or possible a palm tree, your graphic tee can be flirty and fun to define the mood you are in. You can also go with great pops of color. Almost every retailer sells fun summer graphic tees so you’ll have no problem finding one!

2. The skort- it’s not a short, it’s not a skirt, it’s a skort. It transitions easily if you want and is in the middle between casual and sophisticated. Plus it isn’t restricting like a skirt so you can sit on the lawn and enjoy the sun if need be.

3. Jewelry-you can keep it simple and let the shirt and shoes do the talking. Lauren went for simple gold jewelry to accent the edge of the graphic tee (studded bracelet). Or you can accent the shirt with some fun pops of color!

 4. Transition-you can easily throw on a jean jacket or a blazer to take this outfit from night to day. No need to go back home and change!

 Let us know your favorite summer looks and how you make them work with your busy weekends! Enjoy your graphic tees in the warm summer breeze.
