Friday Five | No. 10

Happy Friday! Oh what a week it has been! Made some big decisions about my future and the future of this space. If you missed it, I shared via Instagram stories and shared to my real talk highlight. I will probably share a detailed post here in the coming weeks as well, once more has been decided. For those of you that have reached out, thank you so much for your kind words, sweet compliments, and encouragement + support. I greatly appreciate each and every single one of you!

On another note, a few new Instagram posts went live, a super silly reel, and have a sponsored post going live later today that I’m very excited about – a very natural collaboration for me as this is something I deal with all summer long!

This weekend Joshua and I are lake bound! Looking forward to time on the water, in the sunshine and taking a much needed break. What are you Memorial Day Weekend plans?

Before we all check out for the weekend, I wanted to share my Friday five, five of my favorite finds from this week – including one of the cutest bags that already has me wanting to order a second!

Louella Reese Friday Five No. 10

White Slide Sandals

These creamy white leather slides add just enough height to look stylish, while remaining comfortable with extra padding and a platform heel. The sweet bow detail adds a feminine touch.

Long Sleeve High Cuff Shirtdress

This simple plaid shirt dress is a wonderful versatile summer style. Just pair with your favorite sandals for everyday, heels for work, and wedges for an evening out.

Mini Straw Tote

A mini basket bag, like this one with an option to personalize, is perfect for pairing with your favorite dress for date night, an occasion, or to be worn throughout a warm weather vacation.


brass bell, home decor | Louella Reese

Brass Bell

Joshua and I found a beautiful antique brass bell on one of our weekend antiquing adventures. We have loved the addition to our home. This beauty reminds me of it – I had to share!


clean beauty facial sunscreen | Louella Reese

Squalane + Zinc Sheer Mineral Sunscreen

This lightweight and hydrating sunscreen effortlessly it blends into your skin. Leaving a fresh, dewy finish. I’ve been wearing it both on its own (over my daily moisturizer) and under my makeup, and in both instances, it enhances the look of my skin.

Clean facial sunscreen – ewg verified.
