1 Dress. 3 Looks. { A LuLaRoe Carly Dress Review & LuLaCash Giveaway}

Welcome to the Fall Fashion For All Giveaway Hop hosted by Lindsey Blogs and Viva Veltoro. What better way to celebrate the upcoming Fall season than with a Fall Fashion Giveaway Hop!? A group of your favorite bloggers have come together to offer the best Fall Fashion Giveaways for the entire family – so be sure to hop around to them all below my giveaway and don't miss that AMAZING Grand Prize from the hosts.


**Dress received for review. My love of LuLaRoe is all my own.

Fall fashion is my favorite! Comfy sweaters, adorable boots, cute scarves...what's not to love, right? And I must admit that since discovering LuLaRoe, I've been looking forward to fall fashion even more! Not only can I look great for fall, but I can be crazy comfortable too!

There are many LuLaRoe styles that would be great for fall- the Ana dress, maxi skirts, Sarah Cardigans, Lindsay Kimonos, Joy Vest... and of course, leggings! But this fall, I have found my new fall go-to style in one of their newest dresses- the Carly dress!

We all want a cute dress that lets us breathe and move easier, so we are excited about the Carly - a swing dress that flatters the best parts of a feminine physique while being flowy and breezy everywhere else. The Carly comes in a wide array of fabrics, prints, and washes and has some amazing features such as a patch pocket, a flattering high-low hemline, and cool open sleeves.

When I first saw Carly, I wasn't sure how it would work for me. I loved the style, but I am very petite. I wear a size 0, and XXS across all LuLaRoe styles. The problem? Carly is a very roomy dress and most will recommend going down 1-2 sizes from your normal LuLaRoe size. Being an XXS, I couldn't do that so I was worried that it would swallow me! But I gave it a shot anyway and boy am I glad that I did! Sure, it's quite roomy, but the best part of Carly is its versatility. You can size down, wear your regular size or even size up-- it's all about how you style it and the look you want to go for. And honestly there are so many styles to choose from. Today, I'm sharing how I styled this one dress in three ways!

On It's Own, No Styling

Honestly, I didn't think I would like Carly without any additional styling, especially because I am not able to size down... but let me tell you, I love it! It's so crazy comfortable, it feels as though I'm wearing a nightgown, yet it's socially acceptable to wear out the door!  I cannot help but think this is going to be perfect for Thanksgiving and the upcoming holidays... you can eat all the pumpkin pie your want and not worry about tight jeans or a food baby!! It's perfect for hiding anything you're uncomfortable with!

Belted With Boots

If the oversized look isn't your thing, this look gives it a little more shape! You can play around with blousing and types of belts to get the look you like. I've used thicker belts as well, but prefer the thinner with a little bit of blousing. This probably is my favorite way to style Carly. It's still effortless but just gives it that little something extra! Finish off the fall look with some adorable boots or booties!

Knotted with Leggings

Now, you can wear leggings with either of the previous styles as well for added warmth when the weather changes too, but I like this unique look too! It allows a little more peek of your coordinating leggings and is just a fun way to mix it up! Who says you can't play around with fashion?

These are just three of the many great ways you can style your LuLaRoe Carly dress, but the possibilities are endless! Pair it with other great LuLaRoe styles like Sarah, Joy or Lindsey. Throw on a denim jacket or vest. Add a scarf! Just have fun with it! With LuLaRoe, fashion is just as it should be--- comfortable and FUN!

The Carly is just one of the amazingly comfortable, versatile and flattering styles that LuLaRoe has to offer. They truly have a little something for the whole family. Even my son loves wearing his own leggings around the home. With their incredible softness and stretch, they are ideal for kids like him with sensory issues! They are the only pants he'll keep on once we are in the house!
