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!

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!

From work to work out

Athliesure wear is a fun trend right now in fashion and I am ALL about it.  With how busy our lives are I love that there are options of fashion that can take you from the office to the gym and you look good at both places! Plus, it saves time and money having clothes that serve a dual role.

So I partnered up with one of my favorite boutiques again Tiger Lily to help showcase athliesure wear!

Dress Duo

I am so excited to partner up with one of my favorite boutiques for this post (and hopefully more in the future)!  Tiger Lily is located in Stillwater, OK. However, don’t let that sway you they are great at custom orders and keeping customers updated about what they have in store.  OR if you have a picture of something you like send it their way and they can help get it for you.

They sell quality products for great prices. Great candles, clothes, accessories and more! Today I am going to style two dresses with the same accessories. I am going for a more casual look but as you can see in the collage two beautiful ladies are sporting the dresses with a night out look so they are VERY versatile! newoutfit

Here are my favorite beers to tailgate with.

Now whats a tailgate with out the classic Silver Bullet? Coors Light is a classic easy to drink beer.  Great when it is hot and you need to cool down!  Also, the perfect beer during drinking games!

Craft beer needs some love and one of my favorites is Blood and Honey from Revolver.

Also, I am loving a couple of Fort Worth brews:

Martin House– Gateway XPA

Rahr– Blonde

Rahr– Buffalo Butt

These things are amazing! You CANNOT eat just one.  Originally called the “Monster” Cookie my friends and I have jokingly named it the “CRACK COOKIE” because they are tremendously addicting!  Which means GREAT for tailgate season!

30 FOR 30: Football Favorites Countdown- Yeti Cooler

One of the most important tasks at tailgating is keeping the beer cold! If you haven’t discovered Yeti Coolers you are missing out! Now they are pricey for a cooler but TOTALLY worth it!  We LOVE our Yeti’s and they really do keep everything crazy cold for LONG periods of time!   They come in ALL sizes.  Here is the website says:

“YETI Coolers are built to be indestructible and keep ice for days.  Built for going toe-to-toe with hungry grizzlies.  Built for the prepared.  Built for better Monday morning water cooler talk.  Built for the long haul.  Built for the wild.”

I mean if it can handle grizzlies it can handle us tailgaters!

30 FOR 30: Football Favorites Countdown- The Chilly Pad

The heat can catch up with you during those early season football games! Of course you can cool down with a beer but sometimes you need a little something more.  One of my FAVORITE products is the Chilly Pad!

What is a Chilly Pad?

“Made from a hyper-evaporative material that retains water while remaining dry to the touch, The Chilly Pad® is an innovative way to cool down while enduring outdoor heat and/or high levels of physical activity. When wet, the towel begins to evaporate and cool, providing cool, soft comfort to the user. When it stops cooling, simply re-wet the towel in hot or cold water and wring it out. Within minutes, it’s cool again” – Frogg Toggs

30 FOR 30: Football Favorites Countdown

Since football season is ONE month away I decided to do a countdown of one item a day that I LOVE about football!

I am a SOONER at heart so many of my items show my love for the University of Oklahoma but most items can convert to other teams!

First up you ask? LOCATION, LOCATION, LOCATION!  When we tailgate we go to SooneRVillage! Mark’s parents have an Airstream which is PERFECT.  We can cook, have electricity and most importantly a CLEAN bathroom! This tailgate season will be our 7th year there and our tailgate continues to grow…. Mostly because of all the new babies but new friends attend too! Here are a few pictures of our tailgate!

What are you favorite football items?  I will be covering food, fashion, tech and much more in the next 30 days!
