As women who appreciate what it takes to make it all happen, we decided to partner with Mary’s Meals to highlight the efforts of a dear friend, Ana Laffont. This incredible organization provides a daily meal for children worldwide every school day.

In learning more about the women who volunteer for Mary’s Meals, we realized that Moms all over the world really want the same thing.  Take a look at this Q&A  that we put together which helps us understand how these women make it happen.

 1. What Inspires You (to do it all)?

Ana: Art, artists, generosity, true humbleness.

Ester: I admire people who start small scale businesses. It’s a dream of mine to have my own store.

VMB: It’s the ultimate competition with yourself to keep all of these balls in the air. 

VSB: My family.

2. Describe Motherhood In Three Words…

AnaLove, Love, Love (Did i mention Love?)

Ester: Love, Guidance And Care.

VMB: Love, Give, Worry

VSB: Miraculous, Emotional, Exhausting

3. Describe Your Typical Morning…

Ana: The news, quickly getting ready, quick kid drop-off, lots of caffeine, practicing my Italian on Duolingo

Ester: The first thing i do each day is to get my children ready for school.  A few days a week i work at their school preparing their daily meal – a fortified porridge that is provided by Mary’s Meals. On these days we all go to school together. On my days off I work in my garden.

VMB: It’s calm until we get into the car. We pack backpacks the night before. Uniforms are so helpful and the kids dress themselves. we don’t leave unless teeth are brushed! The car ride is a great time to talk, but if they fight, it can be loud and extremely distracting!  Having lots of sibs has helped them learn the art of negotiation!

VSB: Jump out of bed and run to the shower, run to get the kids ready, run to school and run to the office!

4. Proudest Moment?

Ana: Birth of my 6 kids (and their corresponding epidural rushes)

Ester: My daughter bought groceries for all of us on her own one day.

VMB:  Every day when I see my kids doing something productive.

VSB: My wedding day and the births of my three boys.

5. What’s The Best Advice You’ve Received?

Ana: To swap the feeling of stress for the feeling of gratitude. To learn English. That most problems aren’t really so, until we see them that way. In a school in Zambia, written on the wall: “The challenges we face today are there to make us realize our hidden potential”.

Ester: The best advice i have ever been given is to show as much to love each other as you do your own family.

VMB: Be an individual.  My mom drummed it into our heads and I’m trying to instill the same in my kids.

VSB: Slow down.

6. If You Had A Day To Yourself You Would…

Ana: Spend it with someone who needed me. (Probably nobody, but just checking!) Hopefully it would involve Real Madrid Soccer Club needing me on their stands, too.

Ester: I would have a long bath before preparing a good supper for my family. I would also have a long sleep!

VMB: Ride horses and prepare a huge family dinner.

VSB: Read magazines in bed and walk all over NYC.

7. What Is Your Secret Weapon…

Ana: My cooking. Weapons-grade substance is a better description. Rogue countries want to talk to me.

Ester: I try to have patience and tolerance.

VMB: Identifying and appreciating what motivates others..

VSB: Water and coffee, lots of both.

8. Tell Us One Thing People Don’t Know About You.

Ana: That i want Barbara Streisand’s vocal chords.

Ester: How important my marriage vows are to me.

VMB: I don’t like celebrating my birthday

VSB: I speak Spanish fluently.

Our Spring line is full of stripes, florals and animal prints designed to stand alone with your basics or to mix and match as a bold statement. Here’s our three step guide to mixing prints:

Image Map

1.) Play with Scale Be mindful of scale— try an oversized stripe with an intricate floral or an animal print!

2.) Consider the Color If one of your pieces is a more daring color, pair it with a a neutral palate— black, white, navy or another shade from your base print.

3.) Proportion, proportion, proportion Is one of your pieces more full-coverage? Choose a complementary print that doesn’t compete in size, like a cami or a crop-top.

These are some our rules of thumb, but never be afraid to push the boundaries and wear what makes you happy! Fashion is all about expressing yourself!
