victoria_gloria_Allie_Monarch-18 Good morning, friends! Here we are, renewed and refreshed after a weekend away from work and responsibilities, right? Right!?

One of my absolute favorite things in the world is the feeling of joy that I get when a friend, family member or client texts or calls me with a style question. "Can brown boots go with black jeans?" "Should I get sheer or opaque tights?" "Will you help me pick out sunglasses?"

A little background here. LRW was conceived from these very questions. Friends and family have always come to me with their vestiary queries, and during a conversation with Courtney, it was decided that I should turn whatever knowledge I have into a blog and a business. And LRW was born!

My goal as a blogger and a stylist is to help all of you (myself included) make fashion an enjoyable, non-intimidating, approachable part of your life. It's easy, it's fun, and it's not that deep. We all feel less than our best sometimes - tired, frumpy, fed up, bloated, the list goes on. I am a firm believer that sometimes, all you need are the clothes on your back to lift your mood.

So I have an idea...

Today, I'm starting a new Instagram series, and I'd like you all to follow along. Have a question for me? Want to share your newest purchase? Lovin' your outfit hard? Share your picture with the hashtag #LRWstyle. Let's create a community of self-lovin' stylish folks.  I dare you.

I can't wait to see what you all come up with!
