Meet extraordinary woman, Jennifer Hall-Fitch! Jennifer is the creative mind behind one of our favorite brands, Henny and Coco, and an inspiring mother of two! We’re so excited today to be sitting down with her and chatting all things style and motherhood. Read on to discover why Jennifer is so extraordinary!
We absolutely love Henny & Coco’s playful and cute accessories for kids. What inspired you to start your own brand?
Henny and Coco was inspired by the birth of my baby girl in 2012. I was always looking for dainty hair bows and headbands and could never find any that suit my style, so I took it upon myself to create magical accessories for my daughter and others. Growing up the baby and only girl of three older brothers and working with a family of entrepreneurs I always knew one day I would have my own company. With my fashion design and business background Henny and Coco came to life. After having my children I felt even more secure and complete and that nothing was impossible. I hope to raise my kids with this same mindset and confidence to believe in themselves and know they can achieve anything they want with hard work and dedication just as I was raised.
How would you describe your own style?
Stylish, classic, and effortless.
What’s your favorite clothing item or accessory in your closet right now?
My go to everyday outfit right now is my White T-shirt by Frame, distressed jeans, layered gold dainty necklaces, my slip on loafer mules (I own way too many and have too many favorites), and then I’ll spray Wood Sage and Sea Salt by Jo Malone before I head out the door.
What’s the greatest lesson you’ve learned so far as a mother?
Patience and being present. My kiddos and I are very close and I have always been attentive and a very catering mother.
I have many proud moments for my kids are 5 and 7. Every day they melt my heart. They are my world! They are kind, humble, confident, and talented kiddos. I could go on and on… I am truly blessed with my two sweet souls.
How has your career impacted being a mother?
I am very lucky, I created this lifestyle and company based around my children. I get to be there for pick up, drop off and all of the fun things in between. I am extremely fulfilled being a mom and running Henny and Coco.
How has being a mother impacted your career?
Somedays don’t go as planned and I have learned to take a deep breath and go with the flow. It helps having my team at Henny and Coco, who are also moms and they embrace Henny and Coco as their own. That is hard to find and I am forever grateful, as we know it takes team work to make the dream work! Something I tell my kids every day!
If you were to pull out your handbag right now, what are some of the must-have items we would find inside?
What are you most excited about for Spring/Summer this year?
I have a new nephew due the end of May, I can hardly wait. We go away every summer for the month of July for it is 118 degrees in Scottsdale. The kids love visiting my family in Iowa, we go to our family lake house in Lake Okoboji and have the best time ever making so many memories! They call Okoboji the “Hamptons of Iowa.” I love shopping at the local cute boutiques!
