What the heck's a LuLaRoe and why do I need it?

This post is sponsored by LuLaRoe. All opinions expressed are mine.

If you're on Facebook or Instagram, chances are you've seen something about LuLaRoe. You might be wondering what the heck it is and if it's worth your time. If you are, keep reading. If you already know and love LuLaRoe, then you can keep reading, too.

I first learned about LuLaRoe skirts and dresses when I was pregnant with Clara. I thought they were stinking adorable and looked equally as comfortable, but of course I never feel like buying fancy things when I'm pregnant. So, I put it all in the back of my mind.

A few months ago, when I was near the end of the pregnancy and had a melon for a belly, my friend Tarin contacted me about trying on some LuLaRoe skirts. She said after she had her baby Xander, she found them to fit her new body so comfortably and they also made her feel great. The concept of cute-but-functional fashion totally appeals to me, but I told her I wanted to wait until after I had my baby to consider anything but yoga pants for my lower half. So last week, I took her up on the offer and we met up so I could try on some skirts and pick one to review for you all.

LuLaRoe sells all sorts of maxis, A-lines, pencils and dresses in every size. I was quite impressed with Tarin's inventory and loved a lot of the prints and fabrics. True to my nature, though, I chose a flattering navy pencil skirt, The Cassie. It's simple, yet it makes a statement.

This skirt is all sorts of amazing. First, when I put it on, I felt like it accentuated my new mom curves perfectly. Va-va-voom! Second, I noticed how comfortable it really was. My mind then started spinning with a hundred possibilities of how I could wear it. It's so versatile, it works for any occasion!

I chose to model the Sunday Best style for you all since I was really looking forward to wearing my new skirt to church. Behold:

Top: Q Fashion, Necklace: Charlotte Russe, Skirt: LuLaRoe, Shoes: Brash by Payless

I've always liked the pairing of crisp white and navy blue for a dressier feel. This chiffon blouse is light and feminine and very easy to dress up. I'm currently digging the navy + jade green color combination so I chose the chunky jade necklace as an accessory. And you can never go wrong with gold platform wedges, right? How I love those shoes! I scored them at Payless last year for $10.

Since I last wore it, I've been thinking of other ways I could style this skirt. For a casual day out, I'd pair it with a slouchy V-neck and accessorize with some flat sandals and a straw fedora. For a night on the town, I'd wear it with a blazer, stiletto pumps, chandelier earrings and a fierce, red lip. During the winter, it'd be super-cute with some patterned tights or leggings, boot socks and combat boots along with an infinity scarf and knitted slouchy beanie. Of course, you could never go wrong putting it with a chambray top. Endless possibilities!

If you're interested in LuLaRoe skirts (and by now, you should be) and you live in Arizona, check out Tarin's Facebook page. She will hook you up with the cutest styles and prints LuLaRoe has to offer. She'll even help you host a party if you'd like to share this concept with your friends and family! Take a look.

In the meantime, how would YOU style The Cassie? What's your favorite way to wear a pencil skirt?


  1. foxy laaaadyyyy. I'll have to check them out. I noticed their Amelia Dress the other day and want it very much. #selfcontrol #trying

    1. Yes, that one is SOOOO cute, but not nursing-mama-friendly. Therefore, I have determined my non-lactating friends should all get one so I can enjoy it by proxy. :)

    2. Wear the Amelia backwards!! Works for nursing :-)

  2. Soooooo cute! Can't wait til she has an online shop!

  3. Jenna you sre so pretty! I just want to be you!

  4. Could you be any cuter? I love how positive you are about your body. It's so refreshing and wonderful. You are beautiful, and the way you speak of yourself is never prideful, but always loving. :) Sorry that I went off on a tangent...

    The skirt is fabulous. I love navy, too! Great choice.


I like feedback almost as much as I like food.
