I waffled between a few other titles before settling on the one above…
LuLaRoe: That Crazy Legging Thing
LuLaRoe: No Seriously, You Look Nuts Wearing Those
LuLaRoe: Unicorns and Tigers and Bears, Oh My!
LuLaRoe: Why My Husband Hid My Credit Card
LuLaRoe: The Reason My Husband Changed My PayPal Password
LuLaRoe: I Could Be A Drug Addict, Do You Realize How Lucky You Are?
LuLaRoe: Sorry Kids, Mommy Ruined Christmas
So obviously, it’s a thing over here, these leggings. If you follow me on any of my social media accounts, I’m usually wearing some crazy pattern while smiling wildly. :) I’m not sure if it’s the crazy fun patterns that make me feel like a kid again or the fact that these things feel like butter all ovah my thighs, but I just love these stinkin things! A few months ago, as one of the latecomers to the LuLa party, I bought my first pair of leggings and a classic tee. I wasn’t sure what to expect, but as soon as I slipped them on, I knew it was love.
I ventured out a bit after that and tried a few of the different tops and dresses. I tried a few things for Maddie too. This is where ‘ish got real.
Before I knew it, I was building a fresh, colorful wardrobe that was slightly getting out of control (letttttt’s be real). But I was feeling ME again. That’s the thing I love most… As a stay at home mama, I was feeling like I had kind of lost a bit of my flair in the day-to-day. To have pieces now that work with my lifestyle, allow me to move and be comfortable and still make me look put together without a ton of extra time — it’s a win.
I’ve only ever been to one actual in-home party. I’ve done the rest of my shopping all on Facebook. It’s been a lot of fun to hunt and search for specific prints, but it can definitely be a time sink! If I am trying to go to sleep and am seeing patterns burned onto the backs of my eyelids, I get the hint it’s time to step back from the Lula for a bit, haha. I have to tell you though, there’s an underground cult of LLR fanatics and it’s straight up SCARY, dude. I mean, not that I know first hand or anything… just… just be careful. ;) They will sell their firstborn (or yours) for a pair of mosaic bear leggings, just saying.
Here are a few of my great consultants if you need a place to start!
My husband refuses to buy clothes for himself. Honestly, the last time I can remember him actually standing in a clothing store, picking out something for himself to wear was back in 2005. His birthday is coming up and you know what he said he wanted? Best Buy gift cards.
Oh suuuure, walk around looking like a hobo all day, but hey! At least you have that new Xbox game you’ve been obsessing over for the past 3 months. (Anyone else want to smack the person who thought up Call of Duty? If I hear ENEMY UAV IS ONLINE! one more time…)
Lucky for Justin, I like to shop. I do it often and I do it well. I’m also the person everyone consults when they need help picking out his birthday presents. Something tells me Best Buy will not be in the picture this year. Bahahaha.
I’ve always wondered if it would be better or worse to have a husband who liked to shop. Do any of you girlfriends and wives have this issue with your men? Do men who LIKE to shop for clothes even exist??
The Little Black Dress is the one piece in a woman’s wardrobe she can always rely on to make her feel feminine, lovely, and irresistible… but it can be quite boring if worn all by it’s lonesome!
I’ve come up with a few different ways to change up that black dress using my new favorite toy, Polyvore.
Bold, fun accessories are the easiest way to dress up any outfit. These hot red heels by Steve Madden and funky charm bracelet by Betsey Johnson make this completely appropriate for Girls’ Night Out. Just try not to attract TOO much attention. :)
Blake Lively is just too cute for words. And her outfit — GLORIOUS!
Okay, I have a small confession… while sitting at my desk at work (as I am right now — minimize screen power!), my mind is usually on everything BUT my job. One of the most distracting sites on the planet is InStyle.com. I could honestly sit and browse through The Look of the Day for hours (and I have). I get so inspired by all the well-dressed women, and often try to recreate the looks on my own for a lot less money.
Blake Lively’s look just caught my eye for some reason — it’s so crisp and effortless. So, I found some similar items online and just might have to try it out for myself…
