The Leona Woman Part II

The Leona Woman Part II

April 27, 2018

Thank you to everyone for the wonderful and positive comments on our Leona Woman blog! It is so exciting for us to feature different ladies from our community. This time we are thrilled to present a collectively cool CPA that is also a stylish stepmom.  Lorena Castillo is a Certified Public Accountant and partner in the accounting firm of Negrete & Castillo.


She was born and raised in McAllen and attended the University of Texas-Pan American.  She currently serves on various community boards including the Children’s Advocacy Center of Hidalgo County, Affordable Homes of South Texas, Inc. and Juan Diego Academy.  She is past president of the Texas Society of Certified Public Accountants, RGV Chapter, past president of the Junior League of McAllen, past commissioner for McAllen Housing Authority and has also served on the Texas Bar Foundation’s board as a public member.

When this energetic lady isn’t busy crunching numbers, she is out having fun with her husband Jorge and her stepson Nate.

With Tax Day behind her and Mother’s Day around the corner, Lorena was gracious enough to model some of the newest fashions for us.

Florals are a classic for springtime, but this grey off the shoulder top has a fresh look with the detailed dark lace sleeve.

Millennial pink is so on trend and this floral blouse is definitely giving us spring vibes! It is the perfect piece for your closet because it can be worn to the office and also when you’re “off-duty” and having fun.

Accessories are a must have for any outfit and creates the “wow” factor!  We paired this fabulous floral with a blush crossbody bag. The color is so feminine and is perfect to use from meeting with clients to date night out.

This season it is all about the stacked bracelets. You can personalize your look by mixing and matching just like Lorena did. A fuchsia druzy cuff in between two casual beaded bracelets gives her the perfect day to night look.

Chambray yay! The perfect throw on and go for spring brunch with the girls or movie night with the hubby. Who ever said comfortable couldn’t be chic? This bell sleeved shift dress with lace up neck detail will have your girlfriends wanting to steal your style!

For the woman on the go, this mini “backpack” is a lifesaver. Need some free hands? Wear it as a backpack. Want a sophisticated look? Use it as top handle handbag. Pair it with coordinating tassel bangles and you’re set!

Sunny days are here and what better way to protect your eyes than with some cat eye sunnies. These oversized sunglasses in classic black add a touch of modern sophistication to the whole look.

We hope that you’ve enjoyed looking at some of our new fashions and we invite you to view more of our beautiful outfits at Of course our staff is always ready to personally help you at our Leona boutique so that you can become a Leona Lady too!  

Sending stylish vibes,
