Various Hustles: “Which one? Mother, wife, or designer? I wear many hats in all aspects of my life, especially when it comes to running my business, Leah + Rae. We’re still a small, growing team, which takes me from designer in my quiet studio to production tech in the midst of the hustle and bustle of our Manhattan factory to creative director on set. I honestly wouldn’t have it any other way.”
How I Mix It Up: “I am mixing things up professionally with our first and long-awaited pieces for moms. I cannot wait to see them on all our ‘Momma Muses.’ Lately, my mind has been fully focused on nesting in our new home and enjoying everything there is about country life. I feel I’m taking a course in home economics while exploring all the local farm stands, produce, and even experimenting with some cooking.”
Travel Philosophy: “This summer, it’s all about staying local, and I couldn’t be happier. I’m very pregnant with my third baby, and am enjoying every second of our newfound country life.”
Hamptons Obsessions: “My time out East has definitely allowed me to create more balance in my life, especially when it comes to slowing down and enjoying the little moments — it’s exactly what each of us needs right now.”
