HR professional and supermom to her two kids, a toddler boy and a baby girl, Leighanna Richards is this month’s style share winner. “My ideal weekend would start with a nice hot cup of coffee and getting lost in a good book before both kids are up for the day.” Leighanna follows this up by family time — playing with the kids, pooltime in the backyard, grilling and listening to music. “Bubble blowing and sidewalk chalk a must! Maybe even a trip to the zoo or the botanical gardens. And, of course trying out a new restaurant.”
Leighanna is obsessed with “all things beauty” and if not reading, she is most likely planning her next outfit, doing makeup or pampering herself with a good face mask! Read on to know more about our Style Share winner.
How would you describe your maternity style?
My maternity style definitely revolved around comfort while at the same time being flattering. Rather than hide or conceal my bump, I chose to wear pieces that enhanced it. Typically I gravitate towards a neutral color palette (taupe, grey, black, white), however Le Tote helped me to step outside my box and choose patterns such as feminine florals that went great with my growing body.
How does Le Tote fit into your life right now?
Le Tote has a great selection of nursing-friendly tops and dresses that I have had the pleasure of wearing! Also, maternity leave is ending soon and I will be able to select clothing perfect for work that will accentuate my changing figure. Also, I absolutely love how I have new clothes all of the time to wear!
What is the best style advice you’ve received?
Be yourself. Wear clothes that make you feel good, that fit well, and that are comfortable. When you do this, you will feel great and that results in looking great.
What about an outfit catches your eye?
I always notice when an outfit fits the wearer impeccably. Almost like the clothing was made for their body. Whether it’s a casual outfit or something more fancy, a classic look or a daring vibe, I think looking great all starts with a great fit!
When in doubt, wear….
A pair of perfect jeans, a feminine top and comfortable heels. If it’s the weekend and I’m just being casual, hanging with the kids, then I’ll swap the heels for sandals or ballet flats.
What advice would you give to your fellow toters?
Don’t be afraid to take a risk! Le Tote is the perfect avenue to try something you normally wouldn’t pull off the rack.
Given a chance whose wardrobe would you steal?
Kristin Cavallari! I love her chic, effortless style.
