Welcome to Louella Reese, my name is Laura Leigh! I am a twenty-something living in Charlotte, NC. My husband and I are newly married (October 15, 2016, still calling us newlyweds) and navigating life together as two young millennials.

I started this blog a year after graduating from college as a creative outlet to express my love for fashion, beauty, travel, and life in general. It has grown quite a bit since 2014 and become my absolute favorite space, hopefully it will become yours as well. On Louella Reese you’ll find feminine, casual style with a classic twist for your everyday life. Whether that means at home or for your home, out and about, or traveling, I have you covered! 

If you are wondering where the name Louella Reese came from…it was created from a variety of sources. Including my nickname as a child (given to me by my grandpa), Lou. My grandmother’s name, Alda (which inspired Ella), whom I received my love of fashion from. And finally, Reese, my sweet Yorkshire terrier. Sadly, she passed away last year but will forever live on as the mascot of Louella Reese.
