Fall Colors and Fancy Sleeves

IMG_4512 IMG_4511 IMG_4513 IMG_4519 IMG_4524 IMG_4526

Fall is here, but it's not quite yet sweater weather.  The temperatures might drop at night, but in the sunshine it's like a little bit of extended summer.  During the day, your toes (and shoulders) can still be free.  I've been extending summer with this dress from Exalted Heights.  It's still light and airy, but in some colors that are perfect for transitioning into the cooler weather.  The embroidery on the cuffs is the perfect little touch.  I know this is hard to believe, but I felt like this dress didn't need a whole lot of accessories.  I really minimized my sparkle and tried to let the sleeves do the talking on this dress.

3 Ways to Wear LulaRoe Leggings

3 Ways to Style Your LulaRoe Leggings
In anticipation of my LulaRoe Facebook party tomorrow night (EEK!), I am sharing my fav ways to wear their famous "buttery soft" leggings.  LulaRoe's leggings come in some amazing (and intimidating patterns), so they can be a little hard to style.  Below are three trusty ways I style my leggings.

You can join my party here!
(and there's a change to win $10 Lula cash from the hostess once you join!)

Ways to Wear LulaRoe Leggings (1)
Shop the post: Denim Jacket / Necklace / Boots

1. Irma Tee and Denim Jacket
Pairing some leggings with an Irma tee (from LulaRoe) is pretty much a no brainer.  If you are not familiar, the Irma is LulaRoe's soft and comfy tunic.  It's perfect for leggings because it covers your bum.  But, if you want to jazz up the look, add a denim jacket and some riding boots.

2. Chambray and Booties
This is my personal favorite way to wear my LulaRoe.  The chambray shirt adds a little class and blogger cred to the look.  And of course you have to add a little sparkle with a fun cuff.

Ways to Wear LulaRoe Leggings (3)
Shop the Post: Tee / Cardi / Earrings / Loafers

3. Graphic Tee and Chunky Cardi
This is just a comfy cozy look.  Put your favorite (hilarious) graphic tee under a chunky cardi and throw on some loafers.  You are now ready for stylish relaxation.

Do you have a favorite way to wear your LuleRoe leggings?

LulaRoe Carly Love (& giveaway!)

IMG_4499_1 IMG_4500_1 IMG_4501_1 IMG_4505 IMG_4508

I am obsessed with LulaRoe's newest dress style, the Carly.  And I do not use the term obsessed lightly.  I currently own two.  That's an obsession in my book.  The Carly is my go-to casual Friday outfit.  It's made of a super soft fabric, is super flowy, yet fitted at the top.  This leads to a really flattering silhouette.  I can't wait to figure out new ways to wear this baby.  You can belt it, pair it with leggings, put a denim jacket over top...the sky is the limit.  

I am keeping my fingers crossed that my consultant will get some Carly's in in time for my Facebook pop-up sale on Thursday.  Join my sale group if you haven't already!  (and scroll down for a giveaway!)

Leopard LulaRoe (& giveaway!)

Leopard Nicole 1 Leopard Nicole 2 Leopard Nicole 3 Leopard Nicole 4 Leopard Nicole 5

 This week, in preparation for my online pop-up party on Thursday at 8pm, I am will sharing a few of my favorite looks with LulaRoe items.  If you are unfamiliar with the brand...get familiar.  They make super comfy dresses, tops, and leggings in fun patterns that are perfect for work, a night out, or just lounging around the house.  They are only sold through consultants and items are only a limited number of items are made in each pattern.  So, once an item is gone, it's gone for good.
If you're not familiar with Lula lingo, items in hard to find prints or items that you just really covet are known as your "unicorn."  Well, because I am my grandmother, my "unicorn" was a Nicole dress in leopard.  I searched high and low for this beauty.  I joined a bajillion online parties, signing on to Facebook at the exact right time to try and snag one of these.  I was unsuccessful.  I finally had to resort to purchasing one used on Poshmark.  I say "resort" to, but lately searching used items on Poshmark has been my first stop for hard to find fashion.
Anyways...the Nicole dress is super flattering.  It has the perfect sleeve and skirt length for work and is incredibly stretchy (adding a  huge comfort factor).  The skirt is full, but not too full, so it's flattering on all body types.  It's really the perfect dress!
