It’s time for Round #2 of LulaRoe Love! This month, I’m introducing you to another of my favorite LulaRoe “dealers”! I hope that you took the time to follow Debbie Adams last month, and maybe even find some great new pieces to order from her. I enjoyed the Lindsay so much that I ended up purchasing another one in a sheer black material that will also be great for layering in the summer months. And, I got another Maxi skirt too. These are two pieces that I never would have purchased on my own, yet I’ve fallen in love with them! So, step out of your comfort zone!
Introducing Laura Franklin (aka Lolli)
I first knew of Laura through her connection to 5 Minutes for Mom. Later, I started following her blog – Food Fun Family. A few years ago, I won some theatre tickets that she was giving away; through that, we started chatting more and realized how much we (and our daughters) have in common. We have yet to meet in person, but I know it’ll happen one of these days. Laura gets to do some amazing things as a result of her blog – she’s always flying off to sunny CA for movie events and meeting all sorts of famous people. And she’s a member of the Sweetest Moms at Hersheypark. I’m a little jealous and can only aspire to one day be as cool as she is!
When Laura started selling LulaRoe, I just knew it would be a perfect fit for her. She’s rocking this job!
Unboxing Laura’s Surprise Package
I’ve learned something through the last two months of opening surprise packages … I thought I didn’t like surprises, but I do! It has been so much fun to open a package, not having any clue what might be inside, and letting the world be surprised with me.
Now, let me preface this video with a disclaimer: this is not my finest hour! I was in the middle of spring cleaning my house when the package arrived. I laid it aside, thinking that I’d open it later after I had fixed myself up a bit. But, the surprise factor was getting to me and I simply couldn’t wait to open it. So, I enlisted my 11-year-old to be my videographer (you’ll notice the unsteady hand) and I pretty much look like crap. Forgive me for my excitement!
Wearing My New LulaRoe
The Classic Tee
I’m starting with the Classic Tee because this is an item I specifically told Laura I didn’t like. Why? Because it’s shorter than LulaRoe’s other shirts and seems a bit more “fitted.” In other words, I didn’t think it would work with leggings for me, because it clings to all the wrong places – the places I don’t want to enhance! LOL
But, once again, I learned a lesson through this surprise package … I actually liked the outfit when I put all 3 pieces together. And, I’ve since paired the Classic with jeans and realized that I actually LOVE it with jeans. Last week, I put it on with jeans and the Lindsay I got last month – I wore it on a shopping trip with my mom and felt so put together!
Another day, I paired it with black dress pants and my black sheer Lindsay for a more professional look. I LOVE the versatility and mix & match factor!
None of our local consultants are selling Monroes and I kept seeing them on Laura’s page and I was intrigued by them. It surprised me that I loved the fringes, but I really do; so I was pleasantly surprised to see one in my package from Laura. And I’m glad she chose a nice, lightweight one that is also perfect for summer layering. (I’m learning that the trick is layering! It looks so much more put together than just putting on a shirt alone. I think it’s called “the rule of threes” or something.)
I posted this picture of me (wearing the Classic Tee and Monroe) on Facebook and it garnered so many compliments that I jokingly said it will remain my profile picture forever! The smile on my face just goes to show you how feeling good in your clothes makes you look better too! In fact, I believe I shared a note with the picture that said I felt like a million bucks in this outfit – and I really did (and do!) This Monroe will be getting lots of wear this summer!
One day, Laura had posted a “sneak peek” picture of some items she had just received and I caught a glimpse of the material of these leggings. It just jumped off the screen at me and I loved the pattern and the colors. I think it’s an extra special touch on the part of a LulaRoe consultant who REMEMBERS what you like (after all, they are helping many, many people each and every day). It meant so much to me that Laura remembered that I loved these and included them in my package – even working an entire outfit around them! Now, THAT is customer service at its finest!
One thing about LulaRoe leggings that I’ve discovered (I do have a bunch of them now) is that they are not all cut exactly the same way – some are a bit tighter than others. This pair is one of my tighter pairs, so I won’t be able to pull them up into short capris for summer; but I was able to wear them the other day with a lovely purple shirt that I found, and I loved the look. Again, the way you can mix & match LulaRoe pieces with other LulaRoe pieces or items you find elsewhere is one of the things I love so much about LulaRoe!
To learn more about Laura, be sure to check out her introduction. You can connect with Laura by following along with her Facebook group. She does Outfit of the Day and I love that she allows you to purchase the full outfit (with free shipping) or divide up the pieces so you can buy what you like!
And you definitely don’t want to miss her Live with Laura & Dale Facebook Live sessions! Her hubby Dale is SO ENTERTAINING and fun to watch and their chemistry onscreen makes these videos extra special. Trust me, you’ll love them! So be sure to tune in.
