Scents of the South

March 17, 2017
Lauren James Candles Scents of the South

The sense of smell is a very powerful thing that can dictate memories and create a feeling of nostalgia before you even know what hit you. We’ve all definitely had that moment where you catch a whiff of Axe Body Spray and are immediately transported back to the hallways of your middle school, right?! Or smelling a fresh baked apple pie and remembering holidays spent at your grandmother’s house. All jokes aside, the sense of smell truly does have the power to bring you back to memories you didn’t even know you had.

The new Lauren James candle collection does just that! These candles are all designed, poured, and scented right here in the USA… In our home state of Arkansas to be exact! We take pride in creating products that have ties to the Southern USA, and these candles are no exception. These candles even have wooden wicks, so as soon as you light them you’re surrounded by the warm sound of a crackling fire.

Each Lauren James candle has a 55 hour burn time and is packaged in a 12 oz. custom mason jar. Once the candle is gone, the mason jar can be upcycled for many different uses. Stay tuned for an upcoming DIY blog.

With four quintessential scents of the South, you’ll immediately be taken back to spring and summer days with the windows open and the breeze rolling in. These scents, Magnolia, Champagne, Honeysuckle, and Watermelon Lemonade, are welcoming, fresh, and utterly nostalgic all in one. Not only do these scents fill your whole house but they make the perfect gifts for your mom, sister or girlfriend. Don’t believe us? You’ll just have to try one for yourself!

Which scent are you most excited to try? (Our office favorite is the Magnolia!) Let us know in the comments below, and share pictures of your Lauren James candles on Instagram @LaurenJames!

Lauren James Sorority Program

February 28, 2017

Lauren James Sorority Program Custom Apparel
CALLING ALL SORORITY GIRLS! This one’s for you!

With spring weather already under way and summer on our minds, we’ve been dreaming up new and exciting things to bring y’all on top of the already amazing Spring Collection. Along with all of our new arrivals, we are proud to announce our new line of custom sorority apparel.

The new tees and dresses are all adorable and flattering, and we can promise you you’re going to NEED the spring accessories once they launch (stay tuned!).

Many of the girls working at Lauren James are or have been in a sorority, so needless to say we have a huge passion for making our sisters look fabulous on campus. We’ve dabbled in the customization of our Sorority Pullover and Shaggy V-Neck so the girls could rock their letters AND their LJ, but we wanted to bring even more! Enter the Lauren James Sorority Program.

You may have seen (or own) our Sorority Pullover or Shaggy V-Neck, but we’ve bumped up the volume with our new custom sorority line. With this program, we can provide you and your chapter with the ultimate custom apparel that fits your style. The possibilities are endless for what we can create for you, but here’s a little taste of what we’ve done so far. The office favorite is definitely the embroidered bow shorts!

At LJ, we have in-house designers that create exclusive t-shirt designs for any event such as formals, functions, recruitment, philanthropy events, or PR. Then, the shirts are printed right here in our facilities and shipped to your chapter. It’s that simple! We are also able to customize apparel with embroidery, so we can add your greek letters to that pair of shorts that you’ve been eyeing forever or to almost any piece that we offer here at LJ.

On top of customization opportunities, we can also fulfill bulk orders of dresses, tops, shorts, etc. for recruitment or any other events. We can even provide gameday/letter stickers and koozies for your chapter, custom printed baseball tees, embroidered rain jackets and pullovers, and so much more.

And because we love y’all and this program, all bulk orders placed will be given a group discount of 30% for a limited time. Could your day get any better?!

Do you have an idea for the perfect t-shirt design for your chapter formal, but don’t know how to make it happen? Contact us! We want to hear all of your ideas so we can get our sisters in style!

If you’d like more info on the sorority program, or you’d like to get started, send an email to jordan@shoplaurenjames.com or let us know in the comments below and include your contact info! We can’t wait to get started!

Let It Rain

January 20, 2017

Lauren James Rain Jacket Outfit
Everybody has a different opinion on rainy days. Some people love curling up in bed and reading a book all day, some people love getting outside right in the middle of it, and some people don’t like it at all! We love rainy days, but we’re split between staying in and catching up on our shows, and getting outside to explore. For the days when the stir-craziness hits you and you have to head outdoors, here’s exactly what you need.

The French Terry Hoodie from Lauren James is a fan-favorite top for comfort and style. It can be sized up and paired with leggings for a cozy athleisure get up or even worn more fitted with jeans and a vest! For a rainy day, throw on your favorite color in the Preptec Rain jacket, and you’re ready for whatever is thrown your way! We love this combo because the colors coordinate perfectly, and it’s warm enough that you don’t have to worry about bulky layers! You can literally pair your Preptec Rain Jacket with anything for the ultimate rainy day outfit. 

We want to know how you spend your rainy days! Share it with us on Instagram @StyledSweet! #StyledSweet

Winter Florals

January 17, 2017

Lauren James Winter Flower Crowns
Fresh flowers are the best accessory to brighten up any room. They’re one of the first things that comes to mind when you imagine springtime, but what about for winter? Lately, we’ve seen the winter florals trend getting bigger and bigger, and we’re loving it! If you’ve scrolled through Pinterest this season and haven’t noticed, then you’re missing out. We took some major inspiration from this trend this year when planning our big holiday photoshoot at the Ravington, and we are obsessed with how our interpretation came out! We incorporated deep reds, greens, and white to capture the colors of the season, and they turned out better than we could have imagined!

How do you incorporate flowers into your life during the winter months? Share with us in the comments below and on Instagram @StyledSweet! #StyledSweet

Winter Weather Must-Have

January 5, 2017

Lauren James Cold Weather Exploring Outfit
Post-holiday blues? We feel ya! We feel like we’re in a bit of a lull between the busy winter holiday season and all of the bustle of the spring! But instead of anticipating what’s ahead, we wanna take some time to enjoy the calm season we’re currently in!

One of our favorite past times when we have nice winter weather is to get outside and explore! In our home state of Arkansas, there’s tons of beautiful places to go hiking and walk around outdoors, even in the winter! We love to go exploring, but we like being comfortable at the same time! Which is why one of our go-to items for cool weather is the Long Sleeve Baseball Jersey!

If you love comfort and style, you’ll love this oversized, cozy top! It comes in three fall color combos, and it’s probably the softest shirt you’ll ever own! Here at the LJ office, you’ll see someone in one of these tees at least three times a week! Pair it with your favorite vest like we did here, or throw on a heavier jacket, and you’re ready to go!

Grab your Long Sleeve Baseball Jersey here, and let us know what your favorite outdoor activities are during the winter! Share in the comments below!
