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 🙂
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?
I hope you all had a fantastic weekend, it’s crazy that March is almost over! I wore this great fit and flare dress over the weekend. I bought it from Anthropologie a few years ago and wore it to my college graduation! I actually forgot how cute this dress is on- such a great print and shape. I’ll have to start wearing it more often, especially now that it’s warmer!
Do you ever forget about certain items in your closet? How do you re-wear older pieces in your closet like they are new?
Women are celebrated daily, but today is a special day to recognize all the hard work women around the world have done for gender equality. The theme for this year’s International Women’s Day (today, March 8th), is “Make It Happen”. Below are both celebrities and women in our lives that we believe are making it happen. All of these women have had a unique impact on our lives and we thank them for all their hard work!
Before her concert started, she showed a video on women’s rights and all the work she has done to promote women’s equality. We aspire to be as powerful and passionate as her. Girls Run the World.
The courage this women has is unparalleled. Standing up for her right to an education has proved to hundreds of other women that they deserve an education and so much more.

This woman has helped us grow and discover our potential over the past 10 years. She is one of the strongest women we know for her perseverance and determination.
HeForShe Campaign. Listen to her speech if you haven’t yet.
Not only does she play one our our favorite powerful women characters on Parks and Rec, she translates this into her daily life. Just read “Yes Please”.
We don’t even know where to start. They have taught us about self-worth and motivated us to be our best. We look up to them and hope to make them proud.
We could keep going, but you get the picture. Tell a woman in your life how special they are today to raise the awareness!
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!
Lauren and I have absolutely been loving simple gold jewelry lately. It pairs well with everything! Not to mention, it always the perfect compliment to the rest of an outfit. One of our favorite brands as of late is Gorjana. They are a quintessential cali-cool jewelry brand that epitomizes simple yet chic gold jewels. Recently available at Nordstrom, Gorjana is well-priced and easy accessible.
This might be one of our favorite color combinations (after black and white of course). It is so simple and chic, plus the colors are easy to match back to other pieces in your wardrobe. The preppy combination of white and navy can’t be done wrong. Lauren wore these shorts to the farmers market a few weekends ago with metallic Sperry Top Siders and a white tank to dress it down a little bit. The detail really stands for itself and just needs a few accent pieces to accentuate it. We have been obsessing over different material shorts, check out J.Crew, Ella Moss, and Splendid! They are a great way to mix up your denim shorts!
Happy Friday! Enjoy your weekend XOXO Lauren and Danielle
