What’s in THAT Bag?

Happy NEW Year! I’m really looking forward to 2017.

Naturally, I’m going on a diet (that will last two days) and hell-bent on getting myself organized. The latter is more important than the first (who needs to be fit anyway!). However…me and the ladies at Louette are obsessed with CYCLE BAR these days. read more…

In the shop we have gorgeous planners and calendars from Rifle Paper Co. I feel like there are two types of “planner people”–1. electronic 2. paper (old-school)–I‘m definitely OLD SCHOOL.

I love my iPhone but I really need something tangible to keep everything organized. Its a visual-person thing.

I ran into the shop this morning to get some work done (with baby Rose in tow) and snagged our floral planner. I love it! Cheers to a less-messy, more organized, on-time 2017 (fingers crossed).

{Here some other things that are ALWAYS in my bag!}

  1. Rifle Paper Co. 2017 Planner  Available at Louette
  2. Tocca Bianca Hand Cream Available at Louette–Bianca has been my “go-to” scent!
  3. Plum Organics Squeezers We really cannot live without these. Call me lazy–when two babes are screaming this works wonders. 
  4. Well-Kept Screen Cleansing Cloths Available at Louette. My sister-in-law turned me onto this gem. I quickly got them in the shop. These resealable cleansing cloths work great on cell-phones, electronics and glasses. I always have a pack in my bag. 
  5. Cherrios Eating them is just the beginning. Ha! CLICK HERE
  6. Beauty Counter Lip Sheer in NUDE Perfect for the natural, non-makeupy look. 
  7. Essie Nail Polish “Rock at the Top” My 3 year old will not let me cut her nails without a home pedicure/manicure. This is OUR go-to color of the moment. 
  8. Paw Patrol The obsession is real. If you don’t know what PAW PATROL is…consider yourself lucky. Apparently parents like, Reese Witherspoon know of the PAW PATROL craze too! You’re not alone. 
  9. FashionABLE Wallet  Available at Louette. Literally THE. BEST. WALLET. EVER. I receive so many compliments on it.

Trunk Show

We love supporting local artists! It is especially fun when one of those artists is a dear friend–we are honored to introduce our pal Lissy Rawl (creator/owner of Little Fish Boateak). Like many “momprenuers”, Little Fish Boateak had simple beginnings. Lissy took her background as an Interior Designer to create an outlet that she could do from home.

Nothing is ever easy though. And…raising babies and starting a business is challenging to say the least. Heather (Louette Boutique Owner) and Lissy have been close friends for years. As they were both building their businesses (and raising babies) their friendship grew; they could relate to the “craziness” of trying to find balance.

Little Fish Boateak is unique because Lissy has cleverly married classic styles with a Lowcountry flair. Not afraid to try new trends, Lissy has a way of always keeping her pieces fresh and classy. From earrings to necklaces, Little Fish Boateak speaks to women who appreciate timeless classics with whimsical details.

We are so proud to launch Little Fish Boateak at Louette Boutique! Congratulations, Lissy. xo

Ultra Chic Layering Techniques!

In The South, knowing how to layer is a must.  There is a common misconception when it comes to layering, many women avoid it because they think the layers will make them look like they have packed on a few pounds.  Follow this simple rules and you’ll never feel “fluffy” again!

Layering Techniques

Rules for Layering:

  1. Start with a basic, fitted top like a camisole or t-shirt.  Keep the colors solid or a basic striped or polka dot pattern.
  2. Add a cardigan or lightweight sweater.
  3. Add a lightweight jacket, like a denim jacket.  Something slim works best if you need to layer a winter coat on top, but denim and leather always work!
  4. Don’t need a coat? Feel free to add a heavy knit sweater here to keep you cozy.
  5. Add a lightweight scarf if it’s not too chilly or a knit scarf if the temperatures have dropped!
  6. Throw on your favorite accessories. Bangles, earrings, rings, or a statement necklace. As you shed the layers, these will keep the outfit interesting!

More tips!

  • Add color on the second layer to get a pop of brightness!
  • Tie your scarf in a ton of ways to give your outfits a little OOMPH!
  • Flowy scarves and sweaters in your way? Belt them!
  • Mix up the fabric textures, lengths and weights! Too many of the same fabric types will add on pounds!
