Well hello there, so happy you found us! We are rhyming name sisters (Danielle and Gabrielle), besties, and mommas. Mizzou grads, same as our parents and big brother, and growing up there was no doubt we were going to be Tigers. We loved college and college football. Gameday always meant good times with family and friends.
After college, Danielle moved away to Atlanta and was immersed in SEC football (before the crazy days of conference realignment), tagging along to games at The Swamp and Between The Hedges. After ten years down South, Danielle moved back to Missouri just two weeks before “Bee” was born. Momma D had a hard time finding fashionable gameday gear for baby Bee but did the best she could to piece together something cute (and warm) for Bee’s first trip to Faurot.
Gabrielle also migrated South after college, to the Great State of Texas. She stayed connected to Mizzou by joining the local Dallas-Fort Worth Missouri Alumni Association chapter, setting up for watch parties and running raffles with other board members. We used Mizzou football as an excuse to get the fam together, swinging through Dallas to watch the Tigers play in Austin. Gabrielle also did her best to get back to CoMo for one game each season, and her little “Leo” celebrated his first birthday in true Tiger style at a Mizzou home game tailgate.
After nearly seven years in Dallas, Gabrielle also relocated to Kansas City. Now that we are both back in driving distance of Columbia, we are excited to break out our black and gold and pass on our love for all things Mizzou to the kiddos. But as we look for fun, fashionable gear for our little fans, we continue to find ourselves disappointed. We long for more unique and stylish attire for our Tiger cubs. And if we can’t find it, well, we’ll make it. And we want to share it with other stylish mommas, no matter what team you cheer for. So stay tuned!
We adore this next chapter of fandom, bringing Leo and Bee into the great world of college football games and afternoon tailgates. If you are as excited as we are to rep your school pride and come home to your alma mater with your kiddos, follow along here for tips that are sure to make it a little bit easier and far more stylish.
Leo + Bee is collegiate pride, playfully curated for tiny fans.
