LuLaRoe Diaries: The Lola

Her name was Lola, she was a show girl…. #barrymanilowforthewin

I’m just gonna go ahead and say I think this skirt is seriously underrated. I had to dig DEEP to find a Lola. I’m glad I did because It’s SO cute and SO flattering. For real.

What I love about this skirt is the way it fits. I love anything with a high-waist because when you tuck in a Tee or pair it with a crop top (what is this the 80’s???) it’s super fab and give all body types a beautiful hourglass shape. I do believe I am obsessed. My Lola is bright blue with a soft pink elastic waist band and I probably wouldn’t have paired these two colors together on my own, but I loved the blue lace too much to pass it up. Once I finally had it in my hands, I remembered why LuLaRoe designs the clothes and not me. LOVE THAT SOFT PINK!!

Lola can be dressed up or dressed down, worn with wedges or sandals and makes for the perfect skirt if you’re heading to a Sock Hop Dance…. More on that in a minute.

Ok, so what should you wear with your new-found love? ANYTHING!!!

Lola + Randy Tee = new favorite combo.

This is my favorite Randy ever. I love the sleeves and clearly have a thing for blue at the moment. I had this Randy when I bought my Lola and was pleasantly surprise when I realized I had a match. It was like an episode of Maury over here. “Randy, you are the father!!!”  Those blues are from the same DNA, baby! #fabulous

I love the way these two look together! It’s conservative yet cute and I dig that since I’m a Mom and don’t need any of my lady bits hanging out.  I also feel a bit like one of those robots out of Stepford Wives and I dig that too.

Lola + Crop top/Tank = Summer Ready.

I talked so much crap about this trend coming back it’s not even funny. I was like, COME ON!! Who is going to wear a crop top!?! I’m a Mom now…those days are behind me.

Yeah, so I have a crop top and I like it. A lot. It’s PERFECT with high-waisted skirts!! Who knew?? I am obsessed with this little get-up for Summer time. It has festivals and Bar-B-Ques written all over it! It’s comfy, pulled together, and I’m not going to sweat my butt off. The white is somewhat of a stretch for me since I have two of the messiest children on the planet , but I guess that’s why they invented OxiClean. I also decided to try it with a knotted tank and love that look!

Lola+Converse = Sock Hop Ready.

I put this on and kind of felt like I just stepped into 1950. It made me think of the movie Pleasantville. If you haven’t seen it, you should.

Maybe you aren’t a sandals and crop-top kind of girl and like rocking your chucks with EVERYTHING. Grab your favorite graphic tee, throw on your Lola, and you are ready rock. If you actually need a 50’s inspired outfit to rock around the clock though, I highly suggest the Lola.

Lola + Cardigan = One Classy Broad

I LOVE the Lola paired with a Cardigan! This is so perfect for work or even some weekend festivities! Add a pop of color to your outfit to keep it fun and brighten your day. Another fun way to pair this with a cardigan is to get one in a print you are crushing on and pair with a lace Lola! Don’t be afraid to mix patterns with lace… step out of your comfort zone and rock it like you mean it!

Lola + Irma = Perfection. Irma Is Your Best Friend For Life  #IIYBFFL

New life goal: get that hashtag trending on Facebook.

Y’all know I have a legit love affair with the Irma. There are SO many ways to wear it and this is one of my faves. The Lola is fun and flirty and I love how the knotted Irma compliments that! This is the perfect outfit for Date Night with your significant other or night out with girlfriends. Its comfortable but stylish and flattering in all the right ways.

Whatever you choose to wear with your Lola, make it your own! Confidence is a good look on you! I know I sound like a broken record, but it’s the truth. I read post after post of so many woman feeling less than confident with themselves because of the pressure the media puts of on us to look a certain way. There is no certain way to look. There is the way YOU look, and then everyone else. I always say, DO YOU.  I say that all the time because I mean it. Do you. Don’t do what Susie to your left is doing. Do you what works for you. Sure, it’s great to see what someone else is wearing, or how they have their hair done and use that as inspiration…. I mean, we all have Pinterest, right!?! But always remember to make is your own. What I love the most about my LuLaRoe shopping group is seeing how unique everyone is and the different ways people style their clothes. It’s a great reminder on how different we all are, but in the same spot in love with the same brand because of how it makes us feel…and that’s confident. Rock on with your bad self this week chicas!! Rock that Roe 😉

Happy Strolling!

 

P.S. I’m getting CLOSER to launching!! #Icanseethelight

P.P.S. don’t judge me on the crop top. It was on sale!

P.P.S. I am so embarrassed by the Cartoons in the background. One day I will remember to turn the TV off when the kids take a nap. Yeah…right. Maury would be like “Jackie, the results are in and the lie detector said – that in fact, is a lie.” #toobusytakingselfiestoturnthetvoff #sorrynotsorry

Stages of LuLaRoe Addiction…

 

I’m starting to think I have an addictive personality. First it was strollers followed by diaper bags. Then came Sew Sassy pants for little miss….now the addiction is for myself, and it’s called LuLaRoe. A.K.A buttery soft goodness. I guess I could be addicted to worse things so I’ll look at it as a positive… Insert my Husband rolling his eyes RIGHT HERE.

A few months back, a local LuLaRoe Consultant asked me to try out some leggings and see what I thought. I didn’t really think much of it and said sure when she asked. Obviously the first thing I did was google LuLaRoe;  My research turned up one thing: the leggings were, well, loud. I was not used to loud and was not sure how I felt about the leggings but didn’t want to make any assumptions until I got them on my body. I couldn’t find anything on their website so I figured I would just wait for my leggings to arrive and didn’t give it another thought.

Fast forward to the day my leggings arrived. Oh. My. God. are the words that came out of my mouth. In that moment, I knew I would never put on regular pants again…ever! #5weeksandgoingstrong

Welcome to the stages of a LuLaRoe Addict…

Stage 1: What is LuLaRoe? Is it Lu-La-Row? Lu-La-Roo? Why can’t I buy it on their website? This is frustrating…. but I’m in intrigued…How the heck do I buy them!??!

Stage 2: Dude. Who is going to wear leggings with Pineapples on them? Not me.  Do these come in black?

Guess what...I bought Pineapple leggings. #eatingmywords

Guess what…I bought Pineapple leggings. #eatingmywords

Stage 3: ::Mailman arrives with leggings:: These are really soft, I wonder how they fit. Probably awful. ::puts leggings on::  Woah, woah, woah!!!! These are the most amazing leggings to ever touch my body! How are they one size!?! What kind of sorcery is this??

Stage 4: Buy all the leggings.

Stage 5: Who is Irma? Everyone keeps talking about how Irma is their BFF. I need to meet her…

Stage 6: Oh heeeey, Irma. You are two sizes too big. Probably should have listened to everyone telling me to SIZE DOWN. But you are cute…I think I need more of you, and maybe your little friend Cassie too…

Stage 7: Join 450 Shopping groups and the LuLaRoe BST pages and make your mail carrier wish he/she had a different  route…. (the moment you hit “join” is where it all goes down hill… in a really good, expensive way).

Stage 8: What’s a Unicorn? I don’t see a Unicorn on that floral dress? What are these women talking about. Let me do a little research…

Stage 9: HELP ME FIND MY UNICORN!!!!

Stage 10: Find said Unicorn and refuse to pay $150 for it.

Stage 11: Pay $150 for your Unicorn.

Stage 12 a: Learn what pattern mixing is and make it your b****.

Yep. I am wearing floral leggings and an arrow print Irma… And no, I don’t care if you think it matches or not.

Stage 12 b: Put on your favorite Pineapple leggings and striped Irma you thought were so ridiculous 4 weeks earlier and walk into Target like you’re Bey at the Grammy’s. #whoruntheworld

Stage 13: Sign on to be a LuLaRoe Consultant so your Husband can’t distinguish what’s yours and what’s inventory. #truestory #justkiddingbabe #noimnot

 

Ok, ok, ok. All joking aside, LuLaRoe is AMAZING. It’s so much more than just clothing. The support the women give each other in the groups is off the chain!! There is no body shaming, no worry about size, no judgment because your DISO is the Turdma. We are all there because we love the way we feel in LuLaRoe. I’m in hundreds of groups on Facebook ranging from Mommy/Baby to Garage Sale groups and I can honestly say the LuLaRoe pages are filled with positivity ( Ok, like 90% of the time it’s positive…until Consultants change their group setting and everyone get PISSED) and encouragement to be yourself. I love that. Rock on ladies!! Do you.
