With the studio being closed until April 13th due to the Stay-at-Home order, many of the HDH Team has brought their work home to ensure production stays on track and we can ship those orders out as soon as we return! Other HDH employees have brought home supplies to continue making protective face masks to donate to our local hospitals.
See below for some of our employees’ makeshift studios in their homes, along with Courtney Yeh’s cozy WFH look in some of our new HDH Basics pieces! Some things our team has been doing to maintain normalcy while working from home include making coffee (there are days we go through multiple pots a day at the studio), maybe lighting a few candles, emailing co-workers for accountability, and checking in with eachother via apps like Marco Polo.
While we’re all practicing social distancing, our team thought it’d be fun to show you some of our “OOTDistancing” in our favorite HDH pieces! While there are definitely days that we stay in our pajamas, it feels especially refreshing to put on actual clothes at the beginning of the day that make us feel that much more put together and on track. A lot of our team has found the importance of sticking to our usual routines to maintain some normalcy. Anyone else?
We opened up our #OOTDistancing to all of our followers and have received so many great selfies on Instagram! Tag us in your “Outfits of the Day” while wearing HDH and while social distancing! Be sure to use the hashtag #ootdistancing and once we get out of this craziness, we’ll choose one winner and send them $500 in store credit! We can’t wait to see all of your outfits and beautiful faces! And just a reminder, our studio will be closed through 4/13.
New to our Limited Edition collection is the Nina Dress! Available in both a vibrant red floral print and a more subdued black floral print, this dress can be worn with or without the tie around the waist, and has adjustable spaghetti strap ties. Wear as is on a hot day, or layer over a white tee and a pair of sneakers for an even more casual and on-the-go look.
Now is a bit of a scary time for new moms and moms-to-be out there (and everyone really, but the hormones seem to be amplifying it, am I right?). I hope you’re all finding ways to relax. For me, it’s been cleaning out my closet! I like taking the time to put outfits together and seeing what I can mix-and-match. Versatility has always been important to me, so I look for pieces I can wear again and again. When I got pregnant last year, I was really worried about being able to find clothing that fit my growing body that would also be versatile enough to be worn again after my baby was born. I didn’t want to spend money on something so short term. Luckily, Lisa had my back, and so much of what I’ve been wearing during this time in my life, I’m keeping post-pregnancy and nursing! Check out some of my favorite styles that I wore versions of during my pregnancy last year, along with the styles I’m wearing now that my baby is here and hungry ALL THE TIME 🙂
Take a look at these maternity-friendly HDH pieces! Our HDH Basics: Reversible Tank Jumper is made from a stretchier ribbed material that has more give and works well with a growing belly. The HDH Basics: Easy Jacket can be worn over a belly of any size and quickly elevates any outfit. Our Long Sleeve Tiered Dress and HDH Basics: Reversible Wrap Dress both have a roomier bodice and skirt that accommodate a changing body and their linen fabrics are guaranteed to keep you feeling cool – so important if you find yourself super pregnant in the summer like I did! Tie the included sashes a little tighter for a more fitted look post-pregnancy.
Here are four of my favorite nursing-friendly HDH pieces! Almost all of the selects are wrap-styles, which is practical and creates a flattering v neck. I love having a jumper that has been nursing friendly while still stylish. Our Everything Top is another favorite one to wear while nursing (we had too many to include all the photos here). We also recommend any of our button-up styles such as our new Button-Up Ruffle Blouse (pictured above) or our customer-favorite Short-Sleeve Blouse, which I intend on wearing with the buttons in the back just as soon as I’m done nursing!
