My boyfriend & I have been discussing going on a road trip from California our to the mid-west. When I normally think of road trips, I imagine myself in sweatpants and tank tops for an entire week. If I'm going to be in a car for an extended period of time I would at least like to be comfortable. After browsing ModCloth, my thoughts on road trip fashion changed. I started imagining myself in beautiful effortless dresses and adorable booties and flats. The more I think about how cute my outfits will be as we go state to state, the more excited I am becoming for an upcoming trip. Below are some of my favorite romantic road trip style pieces. Let me know what your favorite pieces are!

Mary-Kate And Ashley Know Best -- 18 Quotes on Business

Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen were in the spotlight from infancy and were able to start their own production company before they even graduated middle school. Now, the twins own several major fashion companies and will soon be expanding into home decor. When they started The Row, the purposely didn't tell anyone it was their line or put labels on the clothing, to make sure that they had a decent product and it wasn't just their name making the sales. Mary-Kate and Ashley are two of the most business savvy entrepreneurs of their generation and continue to grow and expand in a very calculated way. Below are 18 quotes from the twins on their business ventures. Whether the twins are inspiring others or giving words of wisdom, there's more to learn from these girls than just how to throw a party or solve a mystery about an orangutan.

-- Ashley Olsen --

-- Mary-Kate Olsen --

“Communication is key; it’s the most important thing in life. And Mary-Kate and I get to communicate all day long, on all sorts of subjects. It gets us to a more educated, thoughtful place, because we often come to things from different directions — although we want to get to the same space and have the same goal and vision. But that conversation is what gets us there.”
-- Ashley Olsen --

""I don't think you know anything unless you try it yourself. The exciting thing is entering the industry and learning every day. Mary-Kate and I love to learn."
-- Ashley Olsen --
