Created for the chic, multi-tasking mom, The Hive is an online destination for busy women that addresses the evolution from pregnancy through motherhood, without abandoning a love of style, shopping and all things chic.
It goes to show, when LR fans and founders of The Hive, Melissa Magsaysay and Sara Riff approached us to feature Jessie on their digital “Balancing Act” column, we couldn’t have been more thrilled! In the interview Jessie reveals insights on how she balances her busy personal and professional life, the evolution of Loeffler Randall, and some key things she’s learned along the way.

Knowing a thing or two themselves about stylish motherhood, Missy and Sara share their own picks from the Loeffler Randall Resort ’15 collection that are perfect for new moms on the go.

We've all got those must-have heels and strappy sandals peering out at us from the shelves in our closets, but as tempting as they are to put on, the reality of toting along a toddler (or 3) and trying to teeter around on a precariously high stiletto is just not safe nor is it a good look.
Striking that perfect balance between gorgeous and functional doesn't have to be an impossible feat nor should one have to forgo their favorite new spring bag for a bulky diaper tote.
At The Hive, we strive to maintain (and elevate) our personal style with enviable accessories, like the ones below. They're statement making yet make sense for everyday and keep getting ready (even when you've got a kid hanging onto each leg), easy, effortless and undeniably chic.
Natural Snakeskin Cat Pool Slide
As a busy mother, nothing beats being able to slip something on without the added pressure of buckles or laces. The fact that these pool slides are perfectly on trend and done in a sophisticated but edgy snakeskin is icing on the cake.
Ink Open Tote
A great diaper bag alternative. This carryall still looks chic in bright cobalt blue with a poppy floral lining.
Perforated Industry Bag
We love the fact that this bag can be carried as a crossbody and that the stylish perforation makes finding things a cinch.
Cheetah Haircalf Milla Flats
These Milla flats have a feminine touch with the scallop detail and the leopard is bound to pop with even the most simple look. Take that school run!
Shea Perforated Mules
These mules have a sensible heel that allow you to transition from running after your kids to date night with stylish ease.
Lizard Dot Lock Clutch
We'd call this the perfect "drop in." Throw it in the diaper bag and you'll never be scrounging to unearth your lipstick & keys.... plus its really pretty chic on its own.
Raffia Mini Rider
This cute crossbody allows you to be handsfree as you carry more delicate items...like your baby, or your latte.
Ink Floral Irini Sneakers
Prepare for looks of envy at the playground in these floral sneakers that are perfectly welcome for Spring.
