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.

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.

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.

Petite Fashion Friday (July 29)

Another busy week in the books. I know I sound like a broken record on that front, but seriously, by Friday I really feel like I’ve been through it!!!  But as crazy as this week was at work and at home, it was a great fashion week in my opinion because I discovered a new love – the Cassie style from LuLaRoe.

I couldn’t love this pencil skirt more! The pattern is just to die for – there are so many different colors I can rock with this skirt. And the fit is great – it’s stretchy, but not tight. And I can adjust the length depending on my mood or the look I am trying to achieve. On this day, I paired the Cassie with a red-orange blouse from J.Crew Factory, my favorite beige stretch belt from Banana Republic, and a pair of beige pumps. I was so happy with this skirt that I bought several more. I think I’m in love!

On this day, it was so hot and I really just wanted to keep it simple. This olive dress is from H&M. It has pockets, so you know I love it! I paired it with a gold toned statement necklace and a pair of snakeskin print sandals, also from H&M.

 

Yay. I was super excited this day to FINALLy put the Market & Spruce Kasey Knit Romper from Stitch Fix #7 into the rotation. I love this romper. It’s such a soft material and I was right  in my initial review of this romper – it is super light and airy for the hot and muggy summer months.  I paired this with a black stretch belt from Francescas (finally a new stretch belt in my wardrobe!) and a pair of gunmetal gladiator sandals from Via Spiga.

And this was another day of putting a new item into the rotation. I finally wore the Two by Vince Camuto Ikat Front Tee from Trunk #2, paired with a pair of stretch skinny jeans from J.Crew Factory.  This was really a comfy outfit.  Even though it was really warm, the sheer top was very cool!  It’s a tad oversized, but it actually works as an off the shoulder look, which I love!

Also, I actually did have shoes on at some point during the day (a pair of gold leather thong sandals) but by the time I got around to snapping a picture, I was too lazy to put them back on!

And that’s all for this week, ya’ll!  I hope everyone has a great weekend.  I’ll be up at Oh dark thirty for the kids’ final swim met of the summer season, so, as my mom would say, I need to sleep fast!

What I Want Wednesday – On Hiatus Until Mid-August 2016!!!

Another week has flown by without my posting my weekly What I Want Wednesday feature, but in all honesty, I have put myself on a shopping punishment given my new obsession with #LuLaRoe and all of the purchases I have made over the last month.  So, I have to give my online window shopping a real rest until I go to #LuLaRoeREHAB!

I am hoping to get the LuLARoe problem under control by mid-August, so until then…Happy Shopping!
