Wow!! I looked to see when my last post was….October!! How did time slip that fast? Life gets in the way, that’s one thing for sure!
Cooler weather is starting to surface here in the Sunshine State. We Floridians will use any excuse to bring out sweaters, scarves, boots, jackets…even if that means the temperature only drops to 70! 😂
C’mom and see what I pulled out of my arsenal for the temp change…
If you have never tried or been in a pair of LuLaroe leggings…listen to me! You OWE it to yourself to purchase a pair! These are so soft and comfy! And…I know a consultant if your are interested! LuLaroe ~ Monica Vignier. #youvebeenWARNED
The leggings are NOT see through! Seems to me that manufacturers are making leggings so thin! Another FINE reason to go LuLaroe! (see above for consultant! 😂😉)
This vest I use a lot! It does well over shirts and dresses! The color compliments many items in my wardrobe!! If you find something like this, buy it!
Sometimes…sometimes…this vest makes me look a little chunky, so I worry about using it too much! #bodyissues
This week went fast and now we are looking at 🦃 Turkey Day🦃 and I just saw in the store it is 34 shopping days until 🎄Christmas🎄! Whaaaaaaaa???
To all my Florida peeps, enjoy this lovely weather!! You know by next week it will be back in the high 80s!! I hope those of you that aren’t in the Sunshine State are enjoying your state’s weather,too!!
Hello every body!! Another Sunday is here and more clothes to share! Our fearless petite gal/ fashion idol/ LuLaroe consultant is still in queue, waiting for the call to get her LuLaroe inventory. Keep those prayers coming that she will get her stuff soon! I can’t wait and I hope that you are excited to experience all that is LuLaroe.
If you’ve been reading, you have been witnessing my boring transformation from my monotone colored clothing to LuLaHellYeah colors and patterns. My style of clothing hasn’t necessarily changed much (because I know what works for me and what doesn’t) but my fear of patterns has definitely changed! Let’s take a walk….
Cassie Arrow skirt (LuLaroe) // Yellow top (NY & Co ) // Black ballet flats (Payless)
Color. Yellow! What can I say about you? I’ve been fearful of this color for quite sometime! I see it on other people and think it looks great and when I get it to me…no me gusta! But this skirt made me want to give it another shot! I’m glad I did…because I love it!
Pattern. How could you not like the arrow pattern? This was a first for me and I’m glad that I picked it! I believe petite gal and I will be #twinning at some point because she has the same Cassie!!
Shoes! Ugh…I can’t say enough about my shoes! I buy way too many clothing items and don’t even think about what shoes I may (more like don’t) have! I have incorporated more flats but I have just the basic. And these shoes really bring this outfit down….! Work in progress, folks! Stay with me!!
This was a two LLR outfit week. I really don’t know why I said that because there have been weeks with more than 2 outfits a week. Hell…there have been some weeks when I have bought more than 2 LLR pieces in a week!!
Color. You can’t really tell from this picture, but it’s navy blue with a white pattern. Anything nautical looking is fine in my book!
Dress. If there has EVER been a dress/outfit that I am crazy about, it’s THIS dress! I went out on a limb and wore this dress with my Chuck Taylor’s!! (Truth be told…to work!!😁).
Let’s see what this week holds for me!
If you haven’t found our petite gal, look for her:
Hi guys!!! It’s been a few Sunday’s since we last chatted! I’ve been all kinds of busy and realized that I need to get back to posting- both here at my own blog. I’ve over scheduled myself the last few weeks and basically got off track! I will use today as a new starting point!
I know that you’ve been reading here and you know our resident petite gal is now a LuLaRoe Consultant! Beyond excited for her and this new adventure!! Which basically means more clothes for me; which also means less money in my bank account! 😂. She’s still in queue for her inventory but I hope that you’ve had the opportunity to join her FB page (LuLaroe~Monica Vignier) to see and participate in giveaways! I can’t wait for you to see all the LuLaSTUFF she’s going to have!
Speaking of LuLa, I copped this beauty a few weeks ago….Loves…. Meet Amelia!! I believe you’ve seen her before on me in a different pattern, but here she is again! This is my FAVORITE LuLaroe dress!!!
I went GAGA over this pattern and colors. If you read my blog, you know that I LOVE my University of Florida Gators! And as an alumni, I feel it NECESSARY to own some pieces that represent my school in style!! 😉.
This dress is very comfortable! I haven’t had the opportunity to dress his down but this would be so cute with my Chuck Taylors, too!!
I also have a new LuLaroe shirt…
Say hi to Randy! I can’t get enough of baseball tees. Just like the dresses, there are MANY patterns! You can select to have the on the shirt OR on the sleeves. I went with the sleeves. A closer look….
This can be worn with jeans or….leggings!!! (PS…I just bought some leggings that match the blue in the sleeves!)
Thanks for having me back this Sunday! Hope you have a chance to check out the LuLaroe Mo has!! You won’t be sorry….
Morning all!! It’s another Sunday, but not just ANY Sunday!! It’s my mom’s BIRTHDAY!!!
THIS lady right here gave Mo and I everything we know about everything! From Fashionistas to Motherhood (Ohhhh, I like that name for something!), she gave it to us! I hope she has the happiest of birthdays because she deserves it! ❤️
Mom is rocking Lularoe’s Cassie polka dot skirt and like a BOSS she pattern mixed with a striped tee (probably from NY&Co, knowing Mom😉). Mo bought this for her during her last visit to the DVC in August. I’m positive she will be hooked just like the rest of us!! #rehab
Her outfit is a perfect Segway into what I wanted to share today! I’m so excited to share that our resident petite gal is now a Lularoe Fashion Consultant! She can tell you all you need to know! I’m sure you’ve seen my recent posts, as well as hers, with our fabulous LLR finds!
This weekend, hubs and I went to Orlando for a little R&R with the kids at Sapphire Falls Resort. Since we were on the other side of Hurricane Hermoine, Saturday was a bit of a rainy day for the pool. We decided to go to Dave & Buster’s and let the kids OD in video games whilst we enjoyed some libations. #greatparenting
What did I wear, you ask?Leggings (Lularoe) // Relaxed Tee (Old Navy) // Boyfriend Sweater (Target) // Chuck Taylor’s (Zappos)
These leggings literally feel like butter on your legs; like a second skin!! You know I like comfort, and this my friends, is the real deal!!!
The colors/pattern. One thing that LLR has done for me- allowed me to not be afraid of wearing patterns AND color! Not only did step out of the box, I bust that thing wide open!!! #boom
I have no dislikes so I won’t even bother with that subtitle! 😂
Don’t know about Lularoe?? Come see about it from our petite gal leader. Find her on her Facebook group: LuLaroe ~ Monica Vigner LuLaholics! On IG? Find her at lularoemovig.
I promise you…you will NOT be sorry!!! And you have been warned!! #shhhhhDONTtellhubby 😂😂😂
Hope you all enjoy this long Labor Day weekend! Hope you are wearing something FABULOUS! Thanks for reading!! ❤️
Well, it has been a minute or two since I’ve posted here. I’ve been not enthusiastic about anything I have been wearing lately. Nothing worthy of posting…. and I’ve said this before… I really don’t want to share anything that I am really not feeling. But maybe I should just post any way because maybe some one will get something from it. I know I am inspired by others…. Ehh….who knows, we’ll see…
Comfort. Man…are these leggings comfortable. I honestly don’t think I have owned anything this comfortable in.my.life!
Pattern. I was very skeptical about this pattern, but I like the way it looks. I won in from a consultant contest and I got to pick the leggings. Totally out of my comfort zone, but I love them. And…hey…Chuck Taylor’s make everything better!!
Not an DAMN thing! Oh wait….that I don’t own MORE! #workingonit 😂
Lace skirt (Ross) // “Merci” T-shirt (Old Navy)
Lace. I like the lace overlay on this skirt. You can dress this up or down. #winning
Tee. Who doesn’t love a t-shirt that says SOMETHING???
There you have it, ladies! I’m working on getting some more outfits, as I feel like I’m in a rut!
Thanks for sticking with me and reading! Happy Sunday! ❤️
Well, I/we finished week one of school! Actually we stated on Wednesday, so it’s really I/we finished Day 3! 😂.
I was absolutely uninspired by anything I wore last week. That’s why I had no “share” for you all last Sunday. I’m mean, if I’m not loving it or feeling it…who wants to see it?? 😂.
I went with something basic at work and I have to say, I was feeling IT!
Tee dress (Old Navy) // ana Kimono (JcPenney) // Necklace (NY & Co)
The necklace received RAVE reviews (THANKS, MOM!!😘)….
Again I own something that probably matches everything I own in my closet! I got this from my Mom for my birthday in June. She seriously has great taste and most of the items I receive complements on have come from her!!!
I felt a little more inspired to share this week. Let’s see what the next week(s) have to bring!
I think this dress is from Eva Mendez’s collection at NY & Company. I’ve been hesitant to purchase much from them because their sizes have changed (although they claim they haven’t!).
Pattern. The floral pattern is not too overbearing. The colors are perfect for spring and summer. I’m not a floral person, but I sure do love this pattern!
Dress. The length of this dress looked great on the model online. When i received it, I wasn’t too sure how it was going to look on me. You know the petite lady that is NOT thin like a model!!
Material. Let me say, this dress is very light weight which I love living in Florida. Just becareful because it may be so light, it has the potential of being see through. I’ll still wear it….just cover up (or under).
Today is a good day!! J came home from camp in Georgia last night/early this morning. We missed him and so glad for his safe return! I will say that I wasn’t so happy to see/smell the laundry that found its way home too! Imagine this…Georgia, wet,sweat and teenage BOY…in a bag…for 11 hours! OMG! What a wake up call this morning when I walked through the garage on the way out this morning! 😝 #imUP
Let’s see what I have today…
Floral dress (Loft)
The pattern. Again, out of the box on this one. It’s so girlie and made me feel all pretty…so NOT me! 😂
The style. I seem to do well with A line style dresses/skirts. And they really like the petite frame.
The color. You can’t tell by the picture, but it’s navy blue and white. I love this combo, but I would have preferred some tropical colors for this dress. But notice… I apparently didn’t dislike it THAT much that I put it back on the rack!!!😂
I’m going to start a section called “What they WANTED/What they GOT”. People know I like to buy stuff on sale! I don’t like paying full price for clothes although I do. I like the thrill of getting as steal on clothes…I mean…who doesn’t,right??
For this dress…what they WANTED was something like $60 or so, what they GOT was $15! See??? Fun, right???
Today I decided to break in a new Lularoe dress. If you’ve been reading, you probably remember that Lularoe is the new clothing obsession for me! Ladies, meet….
I chose to wear her a little differently because I don’t have the right shoes for her… See!!?!? I belted the dress and pulled it over to make it look like a separate top and skirt versus a full dress. I accented with my Chucks because they go with everything and can go everywhere! The kimono cover was a last minute decision because I was really a little uncomfortable .
Versatility. This dress can be worn a few ways, as above (with or without a belt) or like this….
Fabric. This company has the most giving fabrics. This is a form fitting dress but it doesn’t feel like I’m a stuffed sausage!!
Pattern. I really love the colors in this dress! I don’t usually do florals but it has enough that doesn’t make me feel like a doily.
I have a gut! Well…it ain’t the dress’ fault!! This was really out of my zone in terms of fit. I’m not quite sure I would wear it without a kimono or a sweater tied around my waist. I’m not body confident enough to go without an accessory.
Happy Sunday!! Busy day today, with basketball and packing J for camp…again! This is the first non basketball camp this summer. And truth be told…last one for the summer! School starts August 10th!!! Where has the summer gone???
Last week, I shared some Lularoe outfits. Let me say, I’d love to share some more!!
I went to pick up my sister’s Cassie that I bought for her. I’ve been wanting to try another dress and was able to when I got there. Ladies….meet Amelia!
It’s she PRECIOUS!?!??
The pattern. I tell you, the best thing about finding this company (outside of the comfort of the clothes) are the patterns! I have really been able to step…no…JUMP out of the box that I am in! You know…black, white, grey and all in between! Now I am forced to see other colors!! 😂
Pockets. If you’ve been reading you know a few things-stripes, polka dots, and POCKETS! This girl has pockets!!! #nuffsaid
Size. I suggest, as well as my consultant (you like that…MY consultant!!) to try on the dress/skirts you like because the fabric/patten may or may not be stretchy. This dress needed to be in XS because of the material and it was perfect!! I love everything about this dress! The petite girl look great in this A line cut! Go get one!!!
One. I only own one! But won’t be that way for long!! 😂
Searching for something else online, I came across a lovely dress that was my favorite combo…cute and cheap!
The color. It’s like a teal, which I like! I don’t own anything in this color.
The pockets. That’s all.
The cap sleeves. This look honestly make you look like you have the FLOTUS’ athletic arms! YES! I’ve always been a fan of cap sleeves and they are a great complement to the petite gals frame.
One. More colors PLEASE!!!
I tell ya….for the first time in a long time, I am truly loving my clothes! I’ve always liked my clothes, but I am really feeling what I’m selecting lately. Probably because I’m actually in some color!!! 😂. And 44 has me understanding what works for my petite body (and gut!) and what doesn’t! The rule I continually live by, including picking my clothes:
How do??? Another week has flown by once again!!! This week’s share is brought to you by my new clothing obsession…Lularoe!!!
No…I don’t sell it. This post isn’t sponsored by it. But, I sure do BUYIT!!
Lord….where do I begin?!?!?!!?
My first purchase was an adorable skirt, Azure, for our HHI vacay and 4th of July. I didn’t have anything cute to wear, and I stumbled acrossed a cute skirt. My sister has a few friends that are consultants, so it was easy to buy and she was able to bring it to me when she arrived in HHI.
I wish could see how comfortable this skirt is!!
Comfort. Well, you know I love comfort and I hit the jackpot with this one!
Color/pattern. I have really stepped out of the box on the pattern. I’m not usually in anything red, but there you have it!
Versitile. This skirt can be worn so many ways. I chose to wear it high waisted like the top left picture. I haven’t had the opportunity to try the others…yet! 😉
Size. I purchased the medium which is for 6-8. I am a 6, so that’s a no brainer on the correct size. But with this skirt, I could have (really should have) gone with the small. It would have fit better! I still love it, but I am going to “play” with how to make it better looking on me. This length looks good on the petite gal. It would probably look a wee better with heels.
Since I was so in love with that skirt, off I went to find something else when I got home from HHI. I found a Cassie that I just had to have!
Color/Pattern. Seriously….how can you NOT love these colors and the floral pattern?? I would have picked a better top, but I isn’t really have a thing except white. You can mix and match patterns, which I am going to try soon; just have to find the right mix.
Size. Pencil skirts work well on the petite frame. This skirt has the “yoga” band on the top, so it can hide the/ my Mom belly! 😉. And….I selected the correct size on this skirt!
Not a DAMN thing!!!
If you haven’t heard of or haven’t had a chance to shop Lularoe, as my BIL would say, “You owe it to yourself” to try! The website can help you find a consultant near you. The pieces I have purchased have been friends of my sister’s in Haymarket (VA). It’s fine because items are shipped to your house. I just found a local consultant here in Valrico, FL. I haven’t decided if that’s a good or bad thing!😂. Honestly, it’s good because I can try on a piece that I am obsessing over. But….it’s bad because she’s local and I can get my hands on pieces all too quickly!
Have you heard of Lularoe? What are your likes/dislikes? I’ve already found my next piece!!!
