LuLaRoe Love

Okay y’all; being a mom of a high needs baby [more about that later], I am looking to stay fashionable but comfortable. LuLaRoe has made that SO easy.

They have signature styles that I can easily purchase and add to mix and match into my collection.  The leggings are seriously AMAZEBALLZ. SO soft.

I love that you can stay classic with solids but that they also have fun prints too! Styles range from comfortable to work place classy so there really is something for everyone.

Many pieces work for breastfeeding and could easily transition into pregnancy wardrobe.  WHICH I LOVE.  There are very few “pregnancy” pieces that I purchased because I love things that have more than one use.  This brand is perfect for that!

For those of you unsure about sizing, consultants are great at helping.  For reference I am 5’2″ and about 115-120lbs. Also, for the busty girls I am a DD-DDD just to help you out.

Okay first off here are the leggings.  I am an OS.  I have not tried tween yet but I think I maybe able to wear them. These are what LLR is known for.  They are so soft and flattering!

leggings

The Nicole: This is my favorite dress! It is so flattering but so comfy! Also, it is easy to nurse in. Something that many of my pre-baby dress are NOT.  So this has been a great piece to add to my wardrobe.  I am an XS.

The Amelia: Oh this dress is so fun! It has a great zipper detail and you can wear the zipper in the front or the back! It also has pockets!  I am wearing an XS.

The Carly: A very comfy and versatile dress.  You can style it a TON of ways.  You can pull this dress off around town with some chucks on or heals for a date night! I am wearing an XXS.

The Cassie: A fun skirt.  Great for work! It has the stretch of leggings but looks so professional.  It is so comfortable too not tight and constricting like most skirts! I am an XS but could do a Small as well.

The Lindsay is a fun layering piece since it is a kimono.  This has been perfect for wearing with nursing tops! This is a small.  If they made it in XS I would probably get that but alas they don’t.

The Classic Tee [Left]: Love this shirt to wear with leggings or to rock with a pair of jeans! I am wearing and XS.

The Irma [Right]: A wonderful tunic top.  Can wear a ton of ways! I am wearing an XXS.  I will say I have a few of these and the back length varies a little bit but all are pretty long!

**I also have a maxi skirt not pictured that is an XS.

Here are links to my FAVORITE consultants! Be sure to tell them how you found out about LLR.  If you have questions let me know and I would be happy to help!

Pregnancy Style Recap

As my due date approaches I wanted to get a recap up of what I wore and some style tips during pregnancy.  I think one of the best pieces of advice I took was don’t be afraid to wear pre-pregnancy clothes and incorporate them into your pregnancy pieces.

There are some non-negotiable pregnancy pieces for me.  Leggings and jeans that go over the belly.  Everyone is different but I couldn’t get comfortable (in later pregnancy) with elastic/waistbands digging into my lower tummy.

Pictures and items will be list left to right, top row than bottom row.

Lululemon- The Mat– It is also time for a new yoga mat.  I have been doing a lot of research and have heard rave reviews on this one.  I have bad wrist so a relatively thicker mat is what I am looking for.

30 for 30 football favorites countdown: Friends and Family

No tailgate is complete with out friends and family! That is who MAKE the tailgate.  While ALL the things I have talked about are fun to have without good company you can’t have a good time.

AND then nothing beats going to an OU game with 85K of your closest friends!

30 for 30 football favorites countdown: Crazy for Queso

During a tailgate the best way to make queso is in a crock pot.  My favorite is the Famous Queso Dip!

1 lb.  (16 oz.) VELVEETA®, cut into 1/2-inch cubes
1can  (10 oz.) RO*TEL Diced Tomatoes & Green Chilies, undrained
Dice VELVEETA® into cubes and pour RO*TEL into crock pot with cubes into crock pot.  Turn on high and let melt.  Stir occasionally.  Turn down to medium/low once completely melted.

30 for 30 football favorites countdown: Breakfast of Champs

Tailgates can sometimes start extra early so you definitely need to eat the most important meal of the day!  One of my favorites to make is biscuits and gravy! It is easy and everyone loves it!

Pioneer Brand Gravy Mix- Country Sausage Flavor

Jimmy Dean Reduced Fat Sausage

Preheat oven and bake to directions the Pillsbury Grand calls for.  While those are baking start the prep for the gravy.  Boil the water and follow directions as Pioneer Brand states.  At the same time begin browning the sausage in skillet.  Once browned stir into gravy mix. Then get biscuits out and serve!
