The Modest Budget + Lularoe Giveaway for My 23rd Birthday!

Hello, hello, hellooooo! Do I have something super fun for ya'll today!

First things first, it's my birthday! Woot. Birthdays tend to get less and less fun every year because that's just what growing up is... SO. To ramp things up a bit and celebrate, Megan and Cathryn from LuLaRoe Thomson Girls Boutique and I are teaming up for a LuLaRoe GIVEAWAY!
I got really excited when Megan and Cathryn contacted me because I have been craving a pair of LuLaRoe leggings ever since I had heard them called "butter leggings." Not kidding. Butter leggings.
But the thrifty girl in me always has trouble with online shopping! Megan and Cathryn were so sweet, though, and made everything so easy on me. And now I just might be addicted๐Ÿ˜‰


But how do you do a review on leggings as a modest fashion blogger??

Great question, because I don't wear leggings in public! (In short, leggings "leave no secrets," and I don't feel right exposing all my "secret curves."๐Ÿ˜‰)
BUT. That's one thing that first intrigued me about LuLaRoe. Yes, they specialize in "butter leggings," but they also complement their leggings with modest tops! All their shirts cover the rear, and even the dresses take on a looser fit. I am all about it!
 Shirt: IRMA (Small) // Leggings: TALL AND CURVY (for my growing belly!;)
Megan and Cathryn were also super helpful finding me what sizes would best suit my pregnancy. Since both of them are moms, they have a great understanding of how these products fit! The T&C leggings were a tad bit too big for me normally, but they fit me perfect right now when I don't want to be wearing anything tight around my waist.
Skirt: MAXI SKIRT (Medium) // Shirt: CLASSIC TEE (Small)
Ya'll know I'm a skirts girl, so I know a good skirt! This one is so comfortable! It's light, and flowy, and has a yoga-band-type waistband (which is great for pregnancy, or rolling it up a few times if you're a shorty like me!). It was hard to get the right length on me, though, and if I wasn't pregnant I would probably want a small. I'm only 5'6"-ish, so if you're that height or shorter you'll probably want a S or XS to account for the length.
And this shirt... so soft and comfy! I totally underestimated how great LuLaRoe tops were because everyone always talks about the leggings. But this top is light (so great for the summer) and not at all transparent (so hard to find!). I was great knotted at the side or unknotted. I totally want one in every single color.
 I gotta say though, I think this CARLY dress was my FAVE. I belted it (top pics) to show off more of baby's bump, but it is so flowy and comfortable without a belt too! The length is just perfect (it hit me right above the knee) so I didn't have to worry about wearing leggings under if it I didn't want to. And of course, the material is just as soft and wonderful as everything else LuLaRoe.

So... are ya ready to get your hands on some yet??;)

Why choose the Thomson Girls?

I get it, these days it seems like everyone is selling LuLaRoe! So what sets these two ladies apart?

For those of you who are just like me, and ordering things online makes you a tad nervous, let me put your sweet heart immediately at ease. Even when M & C sent me these fab products, not everything fit! No sweat, because these ladies are the sweetest gals you'll ever meet. They were on top of their emails and totally cool with me trying other sizes. The people behind the product make the biggest difference, and throughout the process I feel like we became friends.
They are also moms, which means they give great clothing advice. They were able to tell me exactly how the products would fit me, and could recommend sizes based on my normal size! They were so so helpful. These ladies are the types that you want as your next door neighbor.
(Also, they make videos about some of the products. Watch one, and you will fall in love with these sisters just like I have!)

Onto the GIVEAWAY!!

This giveaway will run through today (the 13th) through midnight on the 21st, and the winner will be announced a few days after that. This giveaway was sponsored by LuLaRoe Thomson Girls Boutique only, but all opinions are 100% my own and 100% authentic.

  4. Your selection of clothing is super adorbs. I have always loved your thrifted style. I have also been super paranoid about these very expensive leggings. My friend ripped hers the very first time she wore them. But. I hope I win, then I can try and see if they are like butter. ;-)
