Leola & Simone

Hope your week is going well! Who loves shopping at a store knowing you are supporting a local business? Hand in the air over here! I met the owner of Leola & Simone, Danielle Lennon and adore the clothing at her store located in Fort Mill, SC.

Danielle named her store after her grandmother, who owned a boutique in the 1950s in Baton Rouge, LA and left the legacy to Danielle. Danielle was teacher for 13 years but has always had a passion for fashion. She was a manager at Ann Taylor, Bebe and Sephora while teaching. Now that is what I am talking about! Can you relate to the hustle?! [Go girl]

Leola & Simone provides personal shopping appointments and can help style wardrobes for anyone who hosts an event at her store.  Danielle has an event at the store the last Thursday of the month to benefit the community. Samantha Eaton came to the store last month and provided health & wellness tips. Samantha Eaton is a Charlotte Health Coach / Wellness Coach. Amber Wallace who is 'New York Fashion Week' makeup artist and master hairstylist of '90 Degrees Salon Ballantyne' is going to talk everyone this month about Balayge, color correcting, holiday hair care ideas and makeup tips. Oh, must be there- check!

Leloa & Simone offers all of your favorite brands and she has the friendliest staff that she used to actually teach years ago when they were in school. I went there the other day and picked out the 'Clara Sweater' that you can shop here. The grey sweater is super soft and love the detail on the button 3/4 sleeve as an option. You can see that it has a cute front pocket which adds the perfect amount of detail. I am wearing a small and it fit just right. I would wear this sweater with a skirt, tights and booties during the winter or even with skinny jeans and OTK boots. So versatile! 

I paired the 'Clara Sweater' with 'Petty Pants' and wore with brown heels. You can wear the medi pants with the sweater and also a classic tee or dress it up with a blouse and blazer. The pants hit just right on my leg- not too short/not too long, love the pockets and the classic zip back thats is lined tops it all off. I love this outfit for a date night, out with your girlfriends or to the mountains for the perfect fall weekend trip!! Shop the 'Petty Pants' here.
