Jessie's Packing Picks

Category: How We Wear It, LR Loves

This snow has us running for the sand. We're seeing stripes and eyelet essentials at even the thought of warm weather. Get lost inside Jessie's Spring Break bag. You'll be lounging poolside in your pool slides before you know it.



Packing: plan ahead or last minute?

With 3 kids I always plan ahead. I’ve had the boys’ suitcase packed for 3 weeks!

 

What’s your vacay-style philosophy?

I like to bring a few nice outfits with me, a couple great bathing suits (I am obsessed with Zimmerman’s classic one-piece), some workout gear, comfortable cover-ups for by the pool, hat, sunglasses and way too many pairs of shoes. Shoes are my weakness. I can never decide which ones to bring so I usually bring them all.

 


When you get to your hotel, what’s the first thing you do?

I like to change the boys into their suits on the plane so very first thing we can head out to the pool.

 

Favorite locals spot? (or favorite place to find local treasures?)

When I am on vacation, it’s all about my boys. There are no fancy adult dinners or out of the way shopping excursions. My boys are very excited to go get ice cream at Scoops in South Beach so that’s the only spot on my agenda. If my guys are into it, I may take them to the Design District.

 

SHOP THE LOOKS: Paz Sandal in SilverPascal Sandal in Cheetah, Cat Jeweled Sandal in Mint

 

Is there anything you won’t travel without?

My boys, Tata Harper rejuvenating serum, my prized Celine sunglasses that Brian gave me for Christmas, lots of LR shoes, the boys’  swim goggles, sunscreen and new things downloaded to read on my Kindle.

 

SHOP THE LOOK: Open Tote in Cuoio,Etta Jeweled Mules in Wheat

Staff Styling // The Rio Sneaker

Category: How We Wear It, LR Loves

It’s officially the year of the sneaker. Our sportiest shape, the Rio runner is a recent addition to our casual lineup for Resort 2015 as well as a staff favorite. We especially like that it’s totally acceptable (and encouraged) to pair sporty sneaks with feminine pieces for a laid-back yet cool vibe. In this edition of LR Staff Styling, Jessie and the LR team take their Rios to the streets.

 

Jessie say’s, “I love my Rios! I have them in the perforated version. I like how they look sporty but yet elevated at the same time. Our other colors are really cool also – the prints give them something special. Sneakers are such a big part of a shoe wardrobe these days - I love how unique (and comfortable) our version feels.”

 

“These days I’m wearing my Rio mostly with jeans, but I’ve seen a lot of girls pairing them with a skirt and I love that look too. They’ve definitely become a staple around the office - so effortless.”

The Hive / Editor's Picks For New Moms

Category: LR Loves, News

Created for the chic, multi-tasking mom, The Hive is an online destination for busy women that addresses the evolution from pregnancy through motherhood, without abandoning a love of style, shopping and all things chic.

 

It goes to show, when LR fans and founders of The Hive, Melissa Magsaysay and Sara Riff approached us to feature Jessie on their digital “Balancing Act” column, we couldn’t have been more thrilled! In the interview Jessie reveals insights on how she balances her busy personal and professional life, the evolution of Loeffler Randall, and some key things she’s learned along the way.

 

Read The Hive's “Balancing Act With Jessie Randall”.

 

Knowing a thing or two themselves about stylish motherhood, Missy and Sara share their own picks from the Loeffler Randall Resort ’15 collection that are perfect for new moms on the go.

 

Follow @thehivemag on Instagram for daily inspiration.

We've all got those must-have heels and strappy sandals peering out at us from the shelves in our closets, but as tempting as they are to put on, the reality of toting along a toddler (or 3) and trying to teeter around on a precariously high stiletto is just not safe nor is it a good look.

 

Striking that perfect balance between gorgeous and functional doesn't have to be an impossible feat nor should one have to forgo their favorite new spring bag for a bulky diaper tote.

 

At The Hive, we strive to maintain (and elevate) our personal style with enviable accessories, like the ones below. They're statement making yet make sense for everyday and keep getting ready (even when you've got a kid hanging onto each leg), easy, effortless and undeniably chic.

 

Missy’s Picks:

 

Natural Snakeskin Cat Pool Slide

As a busy mother, nothing beats being able to slip something on without the added pressure of buckles or laces.  The fact that these pool slides are perfectly on trend and done in a sophisticated but edgy snakeskin is icing on the cake.

 

Ink Open Tote

A great diaper bag alternative. This carryall still looks chic in bright cobalt blue with a poppy floral lining.


Perforated Industry Bag

We love the fact that this bag can be carried as a crossbody and that the stylish perforation makes finding things a cinch.


Cheetah Haircalf Milla Flats

These Milla flats have a feminine touch with the scallop detail and the leopard is bound to pop with even the most simple look.  Take that school run!

 

 

Sara’s Picks:

 

Shea Perforated Mules

These mules have a sensible heel that allow you to transition from running after your kids to date night with stylish ease.


Lizard Dot Lock Clutch

We'd call this the perfect "drop in."  Throw it in the diaper bag and you'll never be scrounging to unearth your lipstick & keys.... plus its really pretty chic on its own.

 

Raffia Mini Rider

This cute crossbody allows you to be handsfree as you carry more delicate items...like your baby, or your latte.

 

Ink Floral Irini Sneakers

Prepare for looks of envy at the playground in these floral sneakers that are perfectly welcome for Spring.

Staff Styling // The Cat Sandal

Category: How We Wear It, LR Loves

The Cat pool slide is one of our favorite new sandal editions for Resort 2015. A cool take on the (now) ubiquitous sportswear slide - our version is modernized with artisanal details like perforated leather, printed haircalf and beautiful colored snakeskins. The result is a truly effortless and comfortable little sandal that can be dressed up or down with total ease. In this edition of LR Staff Styling, Jessie and the LR team show us how they make the Cat sandal their own.

 

Jessie say’s, “The Cat were my go to on my vacation to Jamaica. I wore them every day with my beach cover-ups but also with jean shorts and even with pretty dresses at night. For me they are so versatile because they are the perfect sporty element to dress down something fancy (I love that juxtaposition) and they are also great for casual times as well.”


“The pool slide is the next big trend after cork sandals. I love the thick, comfort outsole with the pretty, modern upper.”

Easy Ways To Wear Marit with Linh Niller

Category: Collaborations, LR Loves

Linh Niller is a New York based blogger and aspiring designer honing her unique aesthetic (a mix of uptown polish with a downtown cool vibe) and inspiring others to find their own personal style at linhniller.com. This winter, we asked Linh to illustrate a few unexpected ways to style the Loeffler Randall Marit, one of our most versatile tall boots. Enjoy!

 

Linh says, "As temperatures drop in the city, I always start with what shoe to wear. It helps me focus on a certain silhouette. It's helpful to find more than one way to wear layering staples such as a fur vest or cashmere scarf. Warmth and comfort is key, so during the winter, I often am seen in knee high leather boots!"


"I love the Loeffler Randall Marit boot because it’s sleek, minimal, and so comfortable. The boot is great quality leather and is so simple in its design. Knee high boots will never go out of style and the best part is, it pairs well with everything - jeans, midi skirts, culottes, and even mini skirts for a cool 60s vibe."


"Below, I've styled the Marit with culottes, a button up, and a leather jacket for a cool downtown look. I've also styled the boot with a chunky knit sweater dress and cape draped over my shoulders, which offers a great and flattering silhouette. On the days I feel somewhat lazy, I pair the Marit with skinny jeans, which instantly polishes any simple outfit."

Seaside Shoes / Decade Diary

Category: LR Loves

Bernadette Pascua is an illustrator and voice behind one of our favorite reads Decade Diary. She recently took her favorite Jules wedges along with her for a sunny trip to Saint-Paul de Vence, France. These photos are from La Colombe d'Or Hotel, a small hotel renown for it's historic support of the arts since the 1920's at which she stayed. The pool area features a sculpure by artist Alexander Calder, beautifully captured below by Bernadette.

 

 

"For beach holidays I leave the high heels at home and pack either a pair of wedges, little kitten heels or mules. My dress-up shoes for this trip were these simple Loeffler Randall Jules ankle strap wedges. I’ll try wearing them with socks this winter but they’ll definitely be coming out again next summer."

 

 

"There’s something heavenly about being able to swim in a heated pool while staring up a giant Calder mobile. All of the art (at La Colomber d'Or) is enjoyed freely without the structure and confines of a modern museum."

OH JOY! Fall In The Blanks

Category: How We Wear It, LR Loves, News

It's hardly a secret what huge fans we are of our friend, Joy. She's the incredibly creative super mom and voice behind the widely acclaimed lifestyle blog, Oh Joy! We're thrilled to have Joy help us kick off Fall by some showing love for our Marit boots and by answering a few pressing questions...

 

 

The best part of Fall is that crisp, cool air.

 

And my favorite snack is ice cream.

 

I always picture myself in the sunshine.

 

And the place I frequently visit is my hometown, Philadelphia.

 

A song that embodies Fall for me is "What I Wouldn't Do" by A Fine Frenzy.

 

Fall beauty is the change that occurs in nature.

 

My Marit boots are a classic.

 

I'll be wearing them with sweater dresses and skinny jeans, to the farmer's market and brunch with my family.

 

Thanks, Joy and a huge congrats and welcome to baby Coco from the LR team! xx

On first discovering and wearing LR: I probably first came across Loeffler Randall when I saw these awesome Rain Booties and immediately fell in love. My Ione booties and Mini Agenda bag are both unique but feel timeless, are great quality, and can go with so many things in my closet. The bag really goes with anything, which I love. The boots are perfect with jeans or a skirt. They’re also great for Florida Fall/Winter where it never gets too cold but I feel the need to wear boots.

 

Currently inspired by: Keri Russell

 

Fall has me excited about: Wearing jackets and spending time outside. It's been unbearably hot in Florida all summer...

 

A perfect weekend for me is: Going out to brunch, errands, drinks with friends, and a bit of work in the quiet studio.

 

Whenever I travel, I always bring back: Something locally made. I just went to Belize and brought back this amazing woven bag.

 

Currently listening to: Hozier

 

Thanks, Anna! xx
