Been thinking about my role in this life for others a lot lately. Why?… Because we are surrounded by, and living in a culture / world that has so much uncertainty. How we channel our energy and our time is so important. Not only in the lives for others, but for ourselves. Where are your priorities today? Where are you placing them in relationship to the people who mean the most to you daily, and those you serve in the work you do? Whatever your role is, remember my loves… there is no relationship greater than the one with yourself. The person you wake up to every morning first is YOU. How are you nourishing your spirit so you can show up in the roles you play with a full heart? With a healthy mind? With the best intentions?
Everyday is a new start to accomplishing the goals and person you hope to be. Start today. Start now. Commit to the life you want to lead. For others yes! But for yourself even more. You are worth it!

Lately, I have had many conversations with clients & peers about feeling STUCK in wherever they might be, in the season at hand. Feeling stagnant happens. In our Wardrobe, Relationships, how we show up everyday. This is nature my loves, and our cue to make a shift. How we pivot and make our next move to overcoming this place of steady is where true creativity is born. Let’s be clear…there is nothing wrong with cherishing peace in the present. In fact, this is something I continuously work on and encourage others to strive practicing everyday. Once we accomplish the next big thing, or check the few boxes off our to-do list, that doesn’t mean we have to then look for what’s next. Yes?! Finding joy in your life NOW is a gift. Sit there for a bit. Rest in that moment. Listen to it’s lessons, and celebrate it.
And then there are those puzzles in our lives we are itching to piece together… When you feel in your gut that something is right around the corner, and you know you need to take action. You’re just not sure how or when you’ll ever get there. Ugghhhhh!!!! ( sound familiar? ) In my work, I find wardrobe is a metaphor for so much more. A process I love to overcome with my clients. We are forced to look at where we have been, what is currently happening in front of our space, and a blazing desire to define where we wish to go next. A process I feel we all go through in various stages in our lives as women.
Find your vehicle in working through that place of pause. How can you piece together and define next steps to bringing you closer to the person you feel you are meant to be? For me it’s prayer, mediation, silencing the voices, and simply listen. Find ways to be creative outside of your day-to-day work. Draw, paint, mood board make, journal, smile at strangers, go for a small walk, pay someone a compliment. All ways to propel energy into your next move. Your next Chapter.
I love working with you to accomplish that vision you have for the woman you desire to be NOW. We are meant to grow, evolve, and always seek more joy in this creative world that is ours. Wardrobe is my way of sparking your flame to seeing the possibilities that await you when you let go of your past, celebrate your present, and move forward toward the future that is yours and yours only! How incredible is that!? No one can replicate your path. Your style. Your authentic spirit. I’m all in with you on this journey loves.

Wardrobe has always been a source for me to share something unique. It’s my love language really. The truth is, when you are undeniably YOU there is a beautiful power that comes to life. Why? Because you nourish the one thing that matters most… your HEART. And when you do just that, you have an audience who craves the same. They’re watching you. So be that one shining example not only in the way you clothe your body, but also how you design your life. Honor the true being you are today.
You are powerful simply by being you. Share your glory loves. I will always be your biggest fan. x.o. R

If there was ever a message I could give my clients after working with them, is how WORTHY they are of feeling their best self. From Editing her wardrobe, to letting go of the pieces that can be better served for those who are without, to all the work I do. Our wardrobe is our way of communicating how we are feeling TODAY. It’s an avenue to giving back to our community. A way of living by the decisions we make in what we wear, and how we share our true authentic selves every day.
Whether it’s Editing your Wardrobe, Styling you for that meaningful event / capture, or guiding you to shop for the pieces that truly reflect where you are today… My time and commitment with you is that you always leave me feeling a little lighter, inspired, more YOU.
So grateful for the clients I have, and the ones I am graced to meet in my work. Wardrobe Styling for me, is an art. I love connecting humanity to a feeling of joy simply by giving her the confidence to evolve, grow, and become the woman she strives to be with each new day.
I look forward to working with you, and showcasing your true authentic self through style w/ love. x.o. R

When we want to make a change in our life, we often look inward. Habits we want to change. A lifestyle that better suits where we are in our current lives. Shifting our dreams to match our true path toward greatness is in our control. We must take ownership, and dive into creating the life we wish to have. How??…
When it comes to how we feel from the inside out, Wardrobe and Wellness go hand-in-hand. It’s the core to the work I do for you. I am so excited about the Style Chats I have lined up for the Summer, and the opportunity to work with you in your wardrobe. True beauty really does shine from the inside out. Let’s design a wardrobe & lifestyle that represents the life you want to lead. I can’t wait to work with you!

Striding into Spring is something we all crave. The sun peaking into our windows showing us that lighter days are making their way toward our doorstep. I have often been asked, what is it that drives me in the work i do. And i’m here in this humble space to tell you what that is. It’s simple. It’s YOU babes. You are my reason. My WHY in every decision i make in guiding you to the best version of yourself. Your wardrobe is just one piece of the puzzle. The decisions we make everyday affect not only how we see ourselves, but more importantly how that perspective internally translates how we approach our life. And Spring is a natural reminder. When things begin to bloom, that light slowly shares breath more and more into our everyday. Peaking through the clouds, and straight to our heart. Let the new season be a cue. To you. To me. To lighten the load. To make room for the next layer of who you are intended to be for others, yes. But most importantly, for you. We hear a lot about self-care lately. It’s essential in everyday. Mind, body, beauty, and spirit. And it simply starts by choosing YOU as a priority. Tis’ the season for closet-edits, and all things self-care. I’m here for you every step of the way!

Check out Renée’s take on Beauty, and the WHY to her story here. |
Style and Beauty have always gone deeper than just clothing and looks for me. It has always been at the heart of what @reneelarastyle is really all about. Well-being, Beauty, Gratitude, and Grace. I’m so excited to share another layer to my business with you. Health is something i have learned to see as a gift since 1997 when i was diagnosed with Systemic Lupus Erythematosus. While it has brought many challenges, it has also opened so many beautiful doors of opportunity. It has gifted me with a true understanding of what it means to live a truly meaningful life. So join me on this journey babes. Where style and beauty are married. And health is it’s heart. We all deserve to live a beautiful, healthy life.
In Style and Beauty always. x.o. renée

My message this November is quite simple babes. I’m feeling quite strongly about it actually. Especially coming and going so much in my life from place to place. Because really, that’s life. It’s the unexpected ventures we take that often are our greatest gifts. I’m back in my city. The one where i came from. The one i will always belong to. And yet, there are the other places and people i belong to. Who belong to me also. They are embedded in my heart, and won’t ever fade.
You can stay in one spot all your life. Physically. Emotionally. Spiritually. Personally. And that’s okay. If it’s okay with you. Or you can switch lanes, and test out the speeds that work for you. Because my darlings, not everyone is going to be in your same lane. At the same time. They might not even understand the speed you travel. Perhaps you move too slow. Or maybe way too fast. It really doesn’t matter. It’s YOUR lane. Your speed. Your life. Your dreams. Do not waiver. Never doubt that the road you are on is the one you should ultimately be traveling. As long as you are listening to your heart (Which also happens to be your gut), you have arrived at the point in your journey that is exactly where you NEED to be.
So… Let your lane guide you. Let your heart listen. And your hands stay steadfast on that wheel. For they will lead you to exactly where your life is intended. >>> The the ultimate next highway that is your life. Celebrate all the lane changes. It makes you the most amazing work of art. Share what you learn. Be patient with those who want to keep on the straight and narrow. And empathetic to all who have had to switch directions more times than perhaps they deserved. Truth is, we are all on the same Freeway. It’s called LIFE. And we are all trying to find our way. As long as we decide to honor our own vehicle, and those who pass us or who might be way behind us, we can accomplish anything we set our gears to. It’s our greatest discovery, this beautiful life that is ours. Give thanks and keep driving babes. The road is yours to take. x.o. renée

What does a ‘Style Consultation’ with Renée really look like? i get asked this from time to time. And quite simply, it’s one of my favorite parts of what i do. Why? Because i get to meet you. Build a relationship with you. Get rid of all the noise in your head. And get to the heart of what is really stopping you from pursuing the absolute best version of yourself.
Wardrobe and style are more than clothes babes. i say this all the time. It’s a vehicle to sharing with others how you feel from the inside outward. And if we aren’t good on the inside, how are we to be anything but on the out. Personal Style is not only connected to clothing, but our overall well-being. And the process to ensuring you are nourishing yourself with what that means for you, is where i come in.
Let’s connect. Over coffee, by phone, in the comfort of your own space. Book your consultation with me today. It will recharge you. i promise. It’s your start to achieving whatever goal you might have. An event, or an entire new phase in life where you need to redirect how you approach it. I’m here for you. And can’t wait to meet you!
