Black and White Leggings and Visiting Monterey Bay Aquarium

LuLaRoe Leggings Review

I have been intrigued by LuLaRoe leggings for a long time as I had read and heard so many great things about them. A few weeks ago, I was invited to a LuLaRoe party, but I couldn’t make it. So I made sure to check out the online Facebook sale and saw some leggings I really liked. They are black and white, with an interesting design but not “too out there.” Leggings with tomatoes, avocados, bold lipstick tubes or extremely bold colors are fun but not what I normally wear.

I wanted to pick leggings I could wear at home as well as out, as the combination of leggings and a tunic is one of my signature looks (see some examples in the following posts: 5 faux leather legging looksleggings with striped dress and denim jacketleggings with black & white tunicleggings with black/white striped dressfaux leather leggings with a moto jacketleggings with black and white dressleggings and a striped dress, leggings with a poncho and a chunky scarf).


I paired the leggings with my black boots, a black tunic, and a long black cardigan. But I think the leggings will also look great with a colored top in the future. And I’ll have to agree with all the reviews I had read and heard about the leggings - they truly are the softest leggings I’ve ever worn. I’m already looking for a second pair!  


House of Poly Necklace

I also wore my black/white/grey necklace that I bought from House of Poly last year. I discovered House of Poly on Instagram and fell in love with Katrina’s unique designs. When I saw the monochromatic necklace on her Instagram feed, I knew I had to have it. It’s become one of my favorite necklaces, and I think it goes great with the leggings and the rest of the outfit.

Visiting Monterey and the Monterey Bay Aquarium 

I wore the outfit on an outing to Monterey and the Monterey Bay Aquarium this past week when the kid was off from school for winter break, and Andy and I took a day off to take the kid and a friend of his on a day trip. We were lucky as the rain took a break, and we got to enjoy a beautiful day in Monterey and at the Aquarium. 

I love walking down Cannery Row toward the Monterey Bay Aquarium.

One of my favorite parts of the aquarium is always the jellyfish exhibit.

But there are so many great exhibits in the aquarium...

After the Monterey Bay Aquarium we wanted to check out the Dennis the Menace playground, an adventure playground I had read about for many years, but we’ve never been. Unfortunately, once we got there we found out that it is closed until March 18, 2017 for upgrades. But we still enjoyed hanging out next to Lake El Estero and played on the grass.  


Questions: Do you own any LuLaRoe leggings? Any other LuLaRoe clothing items? If so, how do you like them? Are there any other LuLaRoe clothing items I should check out? 

Be well,
