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,
Andrea

  1. I have a few LuLaRoe skirts but haven't tried their leggings yet. The black and white pattern is so versatile! Love how you styled this look!

  2. Those leggings look fab! I also love aquarium s like that! We always visit one in England and in the Netherlands we have beautiful ones in the Zoo s. To bad that the playground was still closed.

    1. Thanks, Nancy! And, yes, I can't believe we finally made plans to visit the adventure playground (I have been wanting to visit since my older son was little; he is 25 now!), and we happened to go during a time when it was closed...

  4. I've heard lots about LuLaRoe but I don't think we have them here in Australia. Shame as this is a really cute pair! They are so perfect with your necklace and I agree are a very wearable print :)

    Glad you had a fun day out, even if the playground was closed!

    Hope you have had a great weekend :)

    1. Thanks, Mica! The leggings are really quite amazing; it's hard to believe how soft they are. And I really love the black and white print.

  5. Great leggings! I have a bit of a thing for leggings, although I only wear them at the gym and at home (not with tunics or dresses - I don't know why!). I've just bought a couple of pairs of very bright colorful ones from new British firm Yoga Leggs and I'll be featuring them in a post soon.

    I'm almost embarrassed to be out in them, because they truly feel like pjs!! What a fun adventure for the day! You're so good to remember to take photos while you're out and about....we get so involved in our fun that we always forget!!

    1. Yes, it's amazing how soft they are!

      My husband is the one who is into taking photos. I actually sometimes get annoyed because he is ALWAYS taking photos, but in the end I'm always thankful... :-)

  9. Love your make-up and you look really stylish in black and white Andrea. Thanks for the trip down memory lane. We stayed in Asilomar a bit further down and I just love it there.

    Love wearing leggings and I got a pair once I loved so much that I bought the exact same pair again....:) xo Sabina

    1. Yes, it's a beautiful area! My husband has been to a couple work retreats at Asilomar - lucky!

      I wanted to buy an extra pair of these leggings as I love them so much, but I don't think there is another pair right now. I'll definitely be on the lookout!

  11. It's not a brand I've heard of yet these leggings are just the kind of thing I'd wear too Andrea. I love how you've matched your necklace with them. You really can't go wrong with a look like this. Brilliant!

    Have a great week x

  15. I didn't know the brand , probably they don't sell their items in Italy. Your new black and white leggings are versatile:a good pick wearable with many tunics.
    The necklace is perfect for a similar-tone look!

    1. Thanks, Dan! And, yes, I think LuLaRoe is only sold in the US at this point. I love the leggings so much and look forward to experimenting with other colored tunics...

    1. Yes, it's a bit addicting... Especially since they have VERY limited amounts (only about 300 pieces are made in each fabric and style/size). So you feel you have to get it. I didn't buy the leggings when they first appeared in the group and then really regretted not buying them as I knew I'd probably never see them again. When I saw them in the FB sale a few days later, I jumped on them...

  25. I have yet to try LuLaRoe, but I have heard their leggings are incredibly soft. I like the style you selected, as they do seem more practical for real life. Your necklace is absolutely perfect with these leggings outfit. Fun pictures from the aquarium, too. Thanks so much for linking up with Fabulous Friday, Andrea!
