Tis the season for getting fancy y’all, today I’m styling two LuLaRoe Elegant pieces. One of the pieces is vintage Elegant and the other is from this year’s release but I promise both of them are swoon worthy. I’m not usually a huge fan of glitter, I think it’s PTSD from crafting with kids while I was a teacher. This time of year though, I make an exception. I even put glitter on my nails because it’s fun and festive. I especially love all of the pieces from our Elegant collection which are sparkly, shiny and super festive.
This skirt is the Lucy and I love how dramatic she is. I paired her with this fun ruffle shirt. I love that the shirt has long sleeves because I cannot do cold weather y’all. Grab a cute clutch and a pair of heels and you’re good.
The next look mixes a few trends together. The first being a lace top. I got this one here and then I put a black cami that I already had under it. It looks kind of weird on the hanger because it’s completely see through but I promise if you put a cami under it, you’ll love it
I promise I was not trying to flip anyone off…or am I? Kidding, I was just trying to hide the glitter container and hold my clutch all with one hand while I casually tucked my hair behind my ear. #actnatural
Totally digging all of these textures together. Are you DYING over this skirt? It’s a Jill, normally they are pleated but with the Elegant collection they are in all different fabrics. I’m a fabric nerd but I don’t know what this material is called, if you do be sure to let me know in the comments. All I know is that it is freaking fabulous!
So as I mentioned above, I’m not usually a huge fan of glitter and here is why. Let me set the scene for you, first it was 34 degrees and as you can see I am in short sleeves. Add to that the fact the morning of the shoot there were some sort of arctic winds so it was super windy. My rock star photographer Kellie wears her sweet baby while she shoots. So we wanted to make quick work of this particular photo because brrrr y’all. So we go to do the first glitter shot and a huge gust of wind comes through and throws the glitter all over me. Opposite of the effect we were going for. Repeat times five and goodbye glitter, goodbye shot. We were just trying to not cry from laughing so hard. The last shot we nailed it but I had to blow into the camera but that also meant into the baby that Kellie is wearing. So not only am I covered in glitter but so is Kellie and so is the baby. I swear it’s like sand at the beach, I wouldn’t be surprised if Kellie found glitter in Emmaline’s diaper. It brings “she leaves a little sparkle wherever she goes” to a whole new level. So glamorous y’all!
Let’s have a moment for these socks y’all. I saw this trend in Instyle earlier this fall and then again in the LuLaRoe Elegant collection photo shoot and I thought um wow, that’s a lot. Then the more I looked at it the more curious I got. Here’s the thing about fashion and trends, if it doesn’t make you a little uncomfortable then you’re not doing it right. Then I happened upon a pair at Target and I decided to give them a try. You can shop the socks here.
One time I had someone ask me how I got to be so confident. It was one of those situations where you look around you to make sure the person is talking to you. Um, I don’t know that I am confident. I just do things and then later realize I did it which makes me bolder the next time and so on and so forth. So I guess it’s just something that grows the more you take chances. I know that being bolder in my fashion choices has helped me feel more confident. I don’t always think that I am rocking something in the moment but I’ll look myself in the mirror, channel my inner Beyonce and just do the dang thing. It’s a mix of being stubborn and not wanting anyone to tell me what do to. You don’t think socks should be worn with high heels? Challenge accepted. I love that this look is not only festive but it also pushes me outside my comfort zone in the best way possible. I attended a Mad Men themed cocktail party a few weeks ago which was the perfect place to rock this outfit. I’m looking forward to finding ways to wear my Elegant all year long. What about you?
