…the chicest swimwear brand I know.
What inspired you to start Over The Moon?
I love weddings and wanted to create a destination online that looks at the industry through a fashion lens as well as showcases beautiful real weddings that are aesthetically aspirational while still feeling very relatable and attainable.
Best piece of advice for new working moms?
The tough times usually don’t last forever. Whether it’s sleep deprivation, teething, colic, trouble breastfeeding, or pumping at the office, whatever difficulty you’re experiencing is more often than not attached to a phase of some kind—and you just have to know that you’ll eventually get to the other side. This is sometimes hard to remember when you’ve been up all night with a crying baby, but I try to reassure all of my friends who are first time moms with this tidbit of wisdom that I learned with baby number one.
What is an important lesson you want to teach your girls?
Empathy. I want my daughters to be considerate of other people’s feelings and perspectives. I think this is more important now than ever before.
What is your favorite place to travel with your family and why?
My hometown of Charleston, S.C. I love showing my girls my old stomping grounds in the downtown historic district…it takes me back to my childhood!
Best way to spend time with your family?
On the beach in Watermill. The girls are total beach babes. We’ll take a picnic lunch and stay all day!
