Sunday Share with my Sister


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)

My likes:

  • 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!! 

My dislikes:

  • 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!!


Amelia (LuLaroe) 

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!! 

My likes:

  • 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:

Happy Sunday and Thanks for reading!❤️

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)

My likes:

  • 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!! ❤️

Petite Fashion Friday (September 2) It’s All About LuLaRoe!

Hey everyone!  I know it has been a minute, but my fmaily and I were enjoying the last few weeks of vacation and I wanted to be all-in with those last precious moments of family time before the hustle and bustle of the school year and fall sports was underway.  We had such a great time during our vacation in Myrtle Beach, and made so many fun memories.  And no one ended up in the ER this trip, so after 4 ER visits with the kids since May, this trip was #WINNING!

The kids are back to school and I am back to the grind.  And I also have some really exciting news!  You guys probably remember that since about June, I have been obsessed with LuLaRoe clothing.  I have featured a number of outfits incorporating the 30+ pieces from LuLaRoe since June.  I seriously have a problem, but what can I say?  I truly, truly love their clothing, which is bold, beautiful, comfy, versatile, and totally affordable – everything I look for in my clothing!  So, during my brief hiatus from Petite Girls Need Clothes Too, I decided that I would become a LuLaRoe fashion consultant!  I am beyond excited and truthfully haven’t been this excited about a new opportunity in quite a while!  I would be so honored if you would check out the end of this post for more information on my new adventure!

But back to the task at hand – Petite Fashion Friday!  Here are some of the outfits I have put together this week.  I’ll go ahead and warn you – they all feature LuLaRoe, but hey, these are truly some cute outfits, and I hope you guys love them as much as I do!

This is the Julia dress from LuLaRoe, which I first talked about in my Hilton Head Island vacation post.  I think I own three Julia now, and I have to say, these dresses are perfect for ALL OF US!  The dress, if you get it in your actual size, is fitted, and gently hugs your assets, without making you feel like a sausage.  Nobody wants to feel like a bratwurst!  And because the Julia is a knee-length dress (or right below the knee if you are on the shorter end of the spectrum), it works so well to wear in the office.

(Shoes: Carlos Santana; Belt: Banana Republic; Bracelet and Necklace: Charming Charlie; Earrings: Francesca’s)

This is the LuLaRoe Cassie skirt, which I know I have posted about before, as well.  I adore this skirt – it is, so far, my favorite LuLaRoe skirt because, well, pencil skirts are my JAM.  I’m sure that is obvious if you have been reading this blog for a while. This Cassie has just a gorgeous print, that can work with so many different colors.

This is the Gracie top from LuLaRoe.  This is actually a kids style that LuLaRoe makes (it’s the kids version of the Classic Tee, which you have also seen me post about). The Gracie works really well as a casual tee, but also canne dressed up by pairing with a pencil skirt. 

(Jeans: J.Crew Factory; Shoes: Target; Belt (came with a pair of capris): Target; Necklace: Charming Charlie)

As I said a few pictures up, pencil skirts are my go-to style for the office, but because of LuLaRoe, I also learned just how awesome pencil skirts can be for a casual look!  Isn’t this a cute casual look?!

And last, but not least, I wore these buttery soft LuLaRoe leggings (size: OS – one size) to run.  Yeah, now that it is cooling off a tad, I have committed to get back to running.  It’s a grueling process, and I am nowhere near I was in January, but I will get back.  The LuLaRoe leggings are perfect for both casual looks AND for working out!  I especially like them for working out because they really kept me cool.  And because they are so buttery soft, I totally forgot how awful I felt running after such a long hiatus.

HAPPY FRIDAY!!

Petite Fashion Friday and Pattern Mixing (August 12)

Hey everyone! Happy Friday! Today is a short post, as I only have one outfit to show you! And that’s not because I didn’t bother to get out of my PJs all week – I simply forgot to snap any pictures of some of my cute outfits this week. Oh well!

Here is what I am wearing today for to go into the office.  I bought this LuLaRoe Cassie skirt (size XS) from my favorite consultant last month, and I have been dying to wear it. Of course, I love the bright yellow on this skirt, but this particular print is a tad out of my comfort zone because I don’t usually go for kitschy animal (or in this case, what look like insects) prints.  But, I had took a chance! However, before putting this skirt into the rotation,  I needed to first to find a top to wear with it, because I didn’t want to go the safe route – black or white would have been too obvious!

I was hoping to find a green top to match the print in this skirt. Enter the LuLaRoe Gracie which has a very subtle green and black stripe. This is actually a kid’s top, in size 14, which I find fit much better than the women’s version.  I think I could even size down to size 12 if I wanted an even more fitted top, but I haven’t tried that (yet)!  I actually found another Gracie top in a similar color (with stripes) to wear with this skirt.  But I had already worn it over the weekend when we took our army of kids to Busch Gardens.

Isn’t this picture the best?!  My youngest 2 kids’ faces are absolutely priceless.

Anywho, back to this outfit!  I really like these two LLR pieces together because they are a “safe” attempt at pattern mixing, of which I am trying to do more!  The subtle striped print on the top works so well with this skirt, and really makes the green on the print stand out a bit more.

For accessories, I stuck with gold, which I am really starting to like again (I used to only wear yellow gold in my teens and early 20’s, followed by the last 15-18 years of sticking with white gold and silver).  I think the gold hoops and gold statement necklace from Francesca’s are a nice subtle touch.  I didn’t want to detract from the boldness of these prints.  And to finish things, I put on a black stretch belt from Francesca’s and charcoal open-toed pumps from BCBG.

And that’s all  for this week.  I hope everyone has a great weekend!

Sunday Share with my Sister


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!?!??

My likes:

  • 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!!!

My dislikes:

  • 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!

Patterned pocket dress (Lemon Nectar from Groop dealz)

My likes:

  • 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.

My dislikes:

  • 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:

Just because you CAN, doesn’t mean you SHOULD!!

Thanks for reading and Happy Sunday!❤️

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 BUY IT!! 

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!! 

My likes:

  • 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! 😉
    Source: Lularoe Jeanna Hilton VIP (one of the Consultants I have purchased from!!)

My dislikes:

  • 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!


My likes:

  • 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! 

My dislikes:

  • 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!!!  

Happy Sunday and thanks for reading!❤️
