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!

Mad for Plaid

When we think about fall, plaid immediately comes to mind. If you couldn’t tell from our previous posts, we LOVE plaid! We almost consider it a neutral, that’s how easy it is. Recently we have been seeing a lot of celebs wearing plaid flannels around their waists (see our Red October post) and we love to do it too. It breaks up the outfit and adds some dimension. Additional plus- flannels actually keep you warm when the sun goes down! They also come in a variety of fits. You can go for a boyfriend fit that is a little baggier, casual, and great for layering, or a more tailored collarless top to wear to work. Tailored button up plaid tops totally plays into the menswear trend we are seeing right now!
Plaid doesn’t have to be a top or a flannel. We have been seeing plaid pop up in accessories, such as scarves and shoes. We love the slip-on sneaker trend and fell in love with the Rebecca Minkoff printed slip-ons below. And as with every season, plaid scarves start making a comeback in fall due to their coziness. We have to say throwing one on in the morning can make everything a little better!
You can find plaid everywhere!! Let us know what you have been WAiSTEDD on and where to find it! We would love to hear your feedback!
Happy Wednesday! Danielle&Lauren
