Thank you to Loft for sponsoring this post. All opinions are our own.
Some best friends are able to share every single item of clothing because they are lucky enough to be the same size. That has never been the case for us. Even in high school when we became best friends, Emily was always the smaller one. It wasn’t until she was pregnant with William that we were finally able to share clothes at our first NYFW. Now one of our favorite brands has included even more sizes, so we don’t have to feel put into a certain category. Loft is now offering inclusive sizing for petite, tall, plus, and maternity. Now if we both love a dress, we can wear it — pregnant or not!

We wanted to take this amazing opportunity to share a little bit more about our friendship and share some insight into how we have made it work for almost 20 years — please don’t do the math on that one!
If you are new here, you might not know that we met in high school. Ashley was a sophomore and Emily was a freshman who had just transferred from Connecticut. It sounds corny, but our bond was instant. We used the same brand of lip plumper and the rest is history.
What’s even more interesting is that we could not be more different — but you know what they say, opposites attract. We have both gone through so many cycles of life together including college, heartbreaks, body image problems, creating this blog together, weddings, engagements, family stuff you name it. And while we have both have had many friends come and go in our lives – we have always remained constants to each other. We both always referred to each other as “our person” a la Meredith and Christina and have never let our friendship waiver.
The biggest struggle we have is maintaining our friendship long distance. We live 250 miles apart, and the blog is the glue that truly holds us together. We make time to talk to each other once a week, text every single day, no matter what, we always spend Memorial Day and Christmas together. So thanks to all of you for your support and loyalty over the years. It means so much to us to have this amazing community of women and we love that we have a place that we can celebrate beauty, diversity, fashion, motherhood, fitness and share the brands, like Loft, that embody this message too!
