Dainty Jewell’s Denim Dress Review

Oh Dainty Jewell’s. Where were you almost 15 years ago when I got married? If I could go back and change one thing about our wedding, it would for sure be the bridesmaid dresses. We sewed the dresses and none of them fit the bridesmaids properly, and the style wasn’t really what I wanted.

Dainty Jewell’s offers the most lovely lace dresses that are perfect for Bridesmaid dresses! I’d love to wear one to a fancy party or concert!

Dainty Jewell’s was so gracious and let me pick out a dress to try, and seeing how I’m not attending a fancy party or concert anytime soon I went a little more practical. 🙂

Dainty Jewell's Sunshine and Tea Denim Dress

The Dainty Jewell’s Sunshine and Tea Denim Dress is a really soft denim dress that is very well made! They released this dress for their summer line, and even though it’s a lighter denim I think it’s actually better suited for fall days because of the sleeve length.

I wore my TOMS shoes with this dress for a more casual look, but you could easily dress this up with nice heals. To go with the more casual look I also wore a braided leather headband from Lilla Rose.

If you are needing a nicer dress for any occasion, definitely consider Dainty Jewell’s! Look closely at the sizing chart, I ordered a medium and it’s a tad snug, but I’ve never ordered a large dress in any other brand. So I tend to think they run slightly small, but since I’ve only tried this one dress it might just be this style.

If you could get a Dainty Jewell’s dress, what style would you like?

Hydrochic Athletic Skirt and Top

There is something about having specific workout clothes that helps you get out the door to walk, run, or go to the gym be much easier. I used to find a denim skirt that would work and go walk, but they were always hot and I felt so out of place at the track wearing a long skirt!

I love finding modest athletic clothes that also can be a swim skirt. Hydrochic sent me this outfit that works for both purposes and I love it!

The skirt is made with water resistant fabric, and has built in shorts under it. There is plenty of room in the skirt to run or swim in it, and the quality is excellent.

I love the matching shirt! I purposefully chose the sleeveless shirt since I wanted this for an athletic outfit. Since it has wide shoulders it looks very modest. When you purchase the top they include a free bra with it, which is essential for this outfit. It’s really comfortable and the fabric goes along with the outfit.

I always have the same routine when I go out walking. I start a workout on my Apple watch, so I can achieve my daily exercise goal of 30 minutes.

Then I put in my headphones, and select some music or a podcast for my walk.

This shirt has a really awesome feature to it! You can unzip the back pocket and store your phone there while you workout! I have the newest iPhone 7 which is quite large, and it fits in there!

Then it’s time for a run!

These outfits are admittedly more expensive than an average swimsuit from a store like Walmart. However you won’t find modest swimsuits that are super cheap. I have had a swim skirt for 3-4 years now and it still looks terrific! When you buy one outfit you can use it for several years, so think of spreading the cost over 3 years or so, instead of just using it for one year.

You do want to look closely at the sizing charts on Hydrochic. I normally wear a medium, and they had me in a large shirt and an x-large skirt. I thought there was absolutely no way that would fit, but it does! Trust the measurements and you should be ok!

You can find the Aqua Adventure Border Skirt here (with several different color options!), and the matching Tidal Tank Chlorine Proof Swim n’ Gym Shirt here!

*Special thanks to Hydrochic for sending me this outfit to review. I was not paid for this review and all opinions are strictly my own. 

 

 

 

Girl’s Rainbow Denim Skirts Are Here!

It’s been a dream come true. For years now I thought how wonderful it would be to have our popular Rainbow Denim Skirt be available for girls. But it was a passing thought, in the midst of changing yet another dirty diaper and folding my 160,700 load of laundry since getting married. 😉

Last year we started running really low on our inventory of the Rainbow Maternity Skirt. It takes a lot of money to manufacture skirts and so Sean and I sat down and talked about the future of these skirts. We decided to manufacture them again, but cut out the middle man that had been involved and do it all ourselves.

I’ll tell you one thing, my life isn’t anything like what I had pictured it as a little girl. I never dreamed that I would learn how to find a good manufacture, deal with wire money transfers, customs, samples of skirts and fabrics…it’s been a little overwhelming but we have pushed through, and the skirts are almost here!!

All of the Rainbow Denim skirts are available for pre-order, and will be shipping around March 10th! Now is the time to get your order in so you can get your skirt right away!

The Girl’s Denim Skirt comes in sizes 4-14, and has plenty of room to run and be active!

Since I’m a mom of 4 girls, I knew that having adjustable waistbands in these skirts was a must! These feature those wonderful little button adjustable waistbands, so you can fit it just right on that skinny tall girl of yours. 🙂

You can Pre-Order any of the Rainbow Denim skirts through Friday and receive a discounted price! Find them here:

My Super Exciting News!!

I’ve been waiting weeks to share this news with you all! No, I’m not pregnant. 🙂 I’m sure that’s why everyone clicked over to see. Ha!

I’m going to be a LulaRoe Consultant!! <—– Link to my Group If It’s Not Clear Below! 

A what? Why? Are You Crazy?

If those thoughts are swirling around in your head, I’m sure you are not the only one. I haven’t gone completely insane. Keep reading to hear my reasons behind joining!!

First off, if you don’t know what LulaRoe is, it’s pretty awesome clothing that I already wear a lot. While a lot of people fall in love with the buttery soft leggings first, the maxi skirt is what has sold me on LulaRoe. It’s the most comfortable maxi skirt I’ve ever worn, and if I’m not wearing a denim skirt I’m normally in one of these LulaRoe skirts!

I kept looking around, trying to figure out how I could find a similar type maxi skirt to add to Deborah & Co. I haven’t been able to offer very many maxi skirts there, because I have a hard time finding a skirt that I feel is modest enough.

There is just something special about the LulaRoe maxi skirts, they are flattering while still being modest. They don’t wrinkle, and they are seriously the most comfortable maxi skirt I’ve ever worn!

Then I added the Nicole Dress to my wardrobe, and fell in love with that one as well!

LulaRoe Pink Nicole Dress. It's super bright and cheerful, and is a great knee length dress that is comfortable for everyday wear.It’s a fun dress to wear all year long! I’ve layered it with leggings and boots in the winter months, and this print is my favorite! The longer sleeves on the dress are nice, and hard to find.

They have shirts, more styles of dresses and skirts, and even clothes for girls!

So how am I going to do this? 

I thought about this for months before joining. I obviously have a lot of different things going on, so I can’t take on one more thing without seriously thinking it through. I finally had a long call with a blogging friend of mine who is selling it, and realized this is something that we could do as a family!

It’s been hard, because even though we own family businesses, there have been only so much that our children can help in. They put stickers on Lilla Rose brochures, and sometimes help with shipping. They can’t help me blog, order inventory, or help Sean design new products. But they are really excited about helping with LulaRoe!

This Lace Lola skirt from Lularoe is just beautiful! I love styling it with a cardigan, and fleece tights to stay warm in the winter time!

We will be doing a lot of live shows (plus album sales where we just post pictures to shop from). My oldest son is really excited about doing these live sales with me (actually all of them are wanting to be involved!), and he also wants to help take pictures of the inventory. He is 13 now, and we have been wanting to get him more involved in our businesses and actually be able to pay him to help us, so he can save money for his first car. It blows my mind that we are at this point, but life has gone by quickly and he will be 16 before we know it!

All of our businesses have supported our family (which has been SUCH a blessing!), but we have had a hard time saving back the amount of money we want to be able to buy a house and move. Our family of 8 lives in a 1200 square foot, 3 bedroom 1 bath rental house, and we are majorly bursting the seams here! Add all our business inventory here as well and it gets kind of crazy. 🙂

How Can You Shop LulaRoe With Me? 

You will need to join my private LulaRoe Facebook Group!

Request to join that group and I’ll get you added ASAP. I’m giving away a pair of leggings right now, so make sure you enter! That is the only place I can sell online, and where all the live Facebook videos and album sales will take place. We will have at least one live Facebook sale a week, along with an album sale. It is going to be so much to interact with you all more this way!

2017 is going to be an awesome year! This is the year of Focus for me, and LulaRoe is definitely one of those things I’m going to be focusing on. I can’t wait to offer even more modest clothing for you all!

Let the new adventure begin! 🙂
