Recently, I’ve started a LuLaRoe Enthusiasts group on Facebook for people who are chronically ill. It’s a very specific niche, but hey. We can’t all have socially acceptable hobbies. In the group, we share ideas for outfits, our favorite purchases, and more. Between the group and my blog posts about style, I seem to have convinced quite a few people that I’m actually fashionable and on trend. (I came clean to them all by posting a photo of my kid wearing socks and sandals together.)
Having this group has made me more creative with my LuLaRoe. I mean, I mod the group, I can’t just slap on a Julia and call it a day! So, last week I shared two ways to wear the Randy baseball tee. This week, we’ve got the same thing, but with the Julia dress!
The first way is how I usually wear my Julia. Although the tee shirt dress is totally flattering on its own, I like to cinch my waist by wearing a thin belt. I wore this outfit to an outdoor wedding in early fall, so I tossed on a pair of flip flops that matched my belt. I didn’t want to wear shoes that could get dirty! This look is dressy enough to wear to a nice luncheon, but casual enough to wear while running errands. It looks out together, but it’s comfy. Honestly, it’s a win-win. You could make this dressier with a nice cardigan and a pair of booties or ballet flats, especially if you aren’t planning on hanging out in a field for three hours.
The second way to wear a Julia is incredibly popular among people who actually know what they’re doing when it comes to fashion. I’ve tucked it under to wear as a tunic over a pair of skinny jeans. (These are from Stitch Fix, check out my referral link here and my post here.) I’ve been losing weight for no explainable reason— not enough to be immediately visible, but enough to make my clothes weirdly baggy— so I’ve also used a hair tie to create a cinch at the waist. It’s even cuter in person! I’m also wearing a pair of canvas tennis shoes in a light denim color to pull the look together, but the bottom of the picture also had a baby clinging to my leg for dear life, so I cropped that out.
This look is perfect for everyday wear. I actually wore it to the park on Saturday, where Critter proceeeded to cover me in donut and banana. Peep the Mom bun— we’re still in the hair-pulling stage here.
There are obviously more than two ways to style a Julia dress, but these are two that I’ve worn recently, and I thought they deserved a quick blog post. How do you wear yours?
