R&S

You recently partnered up with Tolani to create a ‘Mommy and Me’ collection, tell us what inspired your designs:

Nicky

I wanted to design pieces that were breezy and comfy. I worked closely with the Tolani team developing prints that were inspired by my favorite summer destinations. You will see a lot of Positano and Greek references in there.

R&S

Favorite piece from the collection:

Nicky

I love the Elizabeth dress. It’s very versatile. I wear it as a dress, belt it with jeans as a top or throw it on at the beach as a cover up.

Nicky

I always tell moms to enjoy the time when they are teeny babies and can still fit on your chest for a nap. It is such a short window and it flies by!

Do you! Don’t care what other people think… everyone has an opinion.

Fitted blazer, tank, skinny jeans or leather leggings, high heels and a ton of jewelry.

Your most recent beauty or fashion obsession:

I just microbladed my brows. I have light blonde brows which are practically invisible and I was tired of filling them in everyday. Now they are the perfect shape and shade! I went to Michelle Wu at EverTrue Salon. She’s amazing! Fast and didn’t hurt at all.

I am a master baker. I have a major sweet tooth. I love baking cupcakes, cookies and cakes.

I hope ballet flats never go out of style. They are timeless, chic and comfortable.
