    It's a story they must have to tell a lot. Veronica Swanson and Veronica Miele both married nephews of Peter Beard. Now there are two Veronica Beards. Confusing, yes, but really, how could they not take the eponymous route when it came to naming their fashion label? The besties and sister in laws — and now business partners —started Veronica Beard back in 2010, immediately hooking us with their take on the professional "uniform," making working girl pieces that we actually wanted to wear outside the office. Since then, the family brand is well on its way to becoming synonymous with American luxury, and it's no surprise given that the sisters Beard have a combined résumé that boasts stints at Narciso Rodriguez and Vogue.

Inspiration time: these BFFs just happen to be the do-it-all working mom types, too—they've got seven Beardlings between them! Oh, and they had time to interior decorate like a pro: Bright turquoise walls suddenly seems like the best idea ever.
