LuLaRoe Cassie Skirt and San Jose Art Walk

A few months ago, I ordered some LuLaRoe leggings, and I really like them. Since I got them, I read some not-so-good reviews online about LuLaRoe leggings (problems with ripping, etc.), but I haven’t had any issues after washing and wearing mine about half a dozen times.

I enjoy looking through the LuLaRoe online Facebook parties, and when I saw the black and white Cassie skirt, I knew I had to have it. It’s a piece that’ll be a wardrobe staple. Black and white is one of my favorite color combos, and the skirt is very comfortable. Plus, the waistband can be folded over to adjust the length.

I paired the skirt with my Trina Turk Accomplice Top, a black cardigan, and black flats. The Trina Turk Accomplice top was one of my favorite purchases last year. I almost passed it up as it doesn’t look like much on the hanger, but the lovely sales associate urged me to try it on, and I loved it right away. It skims the body in a flattering way, is a bit heavier, more forgiving material, and washes really well. It’s one of the pieces I brought to Germany last year, and I wore it all the time. It also dries very quickly, which is a big plus while traveling.

I also wore a black and white necklace and my black and white sunglasses. Finally, I carried my go-to bag - the Rebecca Minkoff Dog Clip Saddle Bag. I bought the bag last year during the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale, and it was a great purchase as well. It’s small but holds a lot more than meets the eye at first. And it really goes with everything. The Rebecca Minkoff Dog Clip Saddle Bag is on sale right now for a great price.

We took the photos when we visited downtown San Jose on a Sunday afternoon. First, we got some Devout Coffee at Forager (I’m once again sticking to one cup a week and am proud of that…). Forager is still developing, and there is a lot of open space right now. And Devout Coffee is beyond delicious and every cup is a work of art.

And then we went on a little art walk of sorts. Cool wall art is popping up everywhere in downtown San Jose, and I want to document more of it one day in a more formal way.

There is also a lot of cool architecture in downtown San Jose that I haven’t really ever paid attention to…

Questions: Have you ever tried LuLaRoe clothing? If so, what was your experience? Is there wall art in a city close to you? I’m always a bit jealous of the cool walls that are everywhere in LA...

Be well,
Andrea

  4. I've been reading your blog since way back when your younger son was known as "the toddler" and you blogged mainly about healthy living. I've never commented even though I'm really enjoying your blog. The other day you recommended white Old Navy Rockstar jeans, and I gave them a try based on your recommendation. I absolutely love them. Thank you!

    1. Thanks, Laura! The leggings are truly butter soft (I've read that's also the reason they may not be quite as durable...). The Cassie skirt is great since it has a lot of stretch, which makes it also very comfortable.

  9. Very cute! I have not tried anything as you know I am not buying any clothes right now. :) Wall art is so cool... we don't have a lot around here either.

  10. What a cool printed skirt! :) It goes perfectly with the black top and accessories but I could see it working with colours really well too :)

    We don't have Lularoe here in AUstralia so no experience with it, sorry!

    Hope you are having a great start to the week :)

  20. Love the skirt Andrea and how you styled it. You look so chic. We don't get LuLaRoe here in South Africa, not that I know of any way, so I can't comment on my experiences, but the cloths seem to be made for comfort and style, which I love. Hope you have a happy week
