The Lularoe Lynnae Top
Is your wardrobe ready for fall? A new season is a great reason (or excuse!) to add a few great pieces to your Lularoe closet. The Lularoe Lynnae top is our new go-to staple for our cooler fall and winter weather. The Lynnae top is truly a magical layering piece. It is essential in our cool, Pacific Northwest climate.
Living on the beautiful Oregon Coast, means you need to be prepared for any type of weather. A normal day can include sunshine, rain, clouds, wind, and hail all in one day! The locals like to say, “If you don’t like the weather, wait a half hour and it will change!” It’s more truth than fiction, Peeps.
As a result, here at Lula Bay Headquarters, our customers (and Nancy and Marsha) have been begging for a long-sleeved shirt for months. The Lularoe design team has finally stepped up their game. And, we are proud to announce the new Lynnae top. We have ordered this wonderful new style in all sizes available.
Styling the Lynnae Top
The Lularoe Lynnae top is flattering to all figure types. The Lynnae is designed from the body of Classic Tee top with long sleeves added. It also sports a high-low hemline, scooped neck, hourglass tailoring, and a relaxed fit (yahoo!). It pairs beautifully with any of the Lularoe skirt styles and is incredible worn over a Julia dress or Carly dress. And, best of all, the Lynnae is perfect worn with leggings or over your favorite jeans.
This versatile top is named after Deanne Stidham’s (Lularoe’s owner) daughter-in-law.
Our beautiful boutique is stocked with lots of solids, stripes, and prints in all sizes. These beautiful Lynnae tops are ready to go home with you now. Shop in person at our boutique located in downtown Newport; or shop online for this latest style and other great Lularoe pieces at shopbaygirls.com.

The Lularoe Randy Tee Shirt
When is a tee shirt not just a tee shirt? When it’s stylish, easy, and super comfortable! And Lula Bay Girls stocks the perfect tee: the Lularoe Randy Tee Shirt!
The Randy, named after LuLaRoe’s very first male consultant, is probably the most comfortable baseball raglan tee you’ll ever find. And it’s unisex!! I’ve seen many a LuLaBro rocking a Randy tee.
We received a new shipment of Randys last week and they are incredible. This shirt features raglan, mid-length sleeves. Here’s the best part: each shirt has a contrasting color or patterned fabric. Some of the contrast fabrics are on the sleeves; some are in the body.
The Randy is super fun to pair with your other Lula styles or wear with your favorite leggings or jeans. They are amazing tucked in with a skirt or tied at the waist.
Come try one on! Our beautiful boutique is open on Tuesdays, Thursdays, and Saturdays from 10 a.m. Shop online at our website: shopbaygirls.com. If you have questions about how to style your new Randy, click here. Want to hang out with cool, like-minded, fun women, join our shopping group here.
The Lularoe Sarah Cardigan is Everything!!
Really and truly.
We wear one almost every day.
Really and truly.
The Lularoe Sarah Cardigan is lightweight and cozy without being too warm or bulky. The Sarah has become the go-to layering piece for both Nancy and Marsha. If you stop by the boutique, most days you will find both of us wearing a Sarah. The Sarah is long, hits your leg about mid-calf, has cropped sleeves for easy movement without the extra bulk. The result is a super flattering silhouette with lots of “blurring” for problem areas.
Miss Sarah adds texture and warmth which is great for cooler weather. The loose weave keeps the Sarah comfortably cool enough to wear during the summer months. It will jazz up a simple tee shirt or can double as a swimsuit coverup. The ultimate dress-up or dress-down piece. Perfect for adapting to air-conditioned office buildings and restaurants.
In this photo, you will notice I have a Joy vest over a feathered Carly dress and a Sarah over it all! Check out information on how to wear the Carly here and the Joy here. This outfit was Coco approved!
The Sarah’s namesake is the niece of Deanne Stidham’s (Lularoe’s owner). We carry a full line of this incredible staple. Come see us for a personal fitting at the boutique. Click here for a map and directions. Do you have questions about this item? Click here. Shop our website shopbaygirls.com
And super exciting news: the Sarah is now available in 2XL and 3XL. Yahoo!!!
We all want a dress that is relaxed and lets us move with ease. But no one wants a dress that looks like a sack. What if you could have a relaxed fit, with ease of movement, and it was also the perfect travel dress? Enter my favorite Lularoe travel dress: the Carly dress.
The Carly dress is a “swing” dress that flatters our good parts and is flowing and easy with the not-so-good parts. I call her the Queen of Blurring (she will blur/hide the less-than-desirable tummy, butt, and hips). And, she can look casual or dressy depending on the fabrics, prints, and accessories. I love the high-low hemline and short sleeves on the Carly dress.
The Carly was my first Lularoe dress and is still my favorite! She is my go-to-dress for travel. As many of you know, my handsome son (John), my beautiful daughter-in-law (Sanne), and my precious two-year-old granddaughter (Ida) live in Denmark. I am fortunate enough to visit them each year for several weeks. Denmark and its people are amazing, but the plane ride is brutal.
With my Carly, a pair of leggings, a scarf, and a Sarah cardigan, I am ready for almost anything. I am adequately layered in case the plane or airport is too warm or too cold. Okay, I might need a few other things — like a few glasses of wine, snacks, 3 to 4 in-flight movies, cell phone, charger, my IPAD, a good book (in case I forgot to put my charger in my carry-on!!! which I did once!), neck pillow, eye mask, compression socks, meditation music, and maybe a cute male steward. Did I mention, I cannot sleep on planes?? Except for my first trip to Denmark when I was bumped to FIRST CLASS!!! It pays to fly alone!
Oh, yeah, back to Miss Carly.
How to Style your Carly Dress
Here are a few of the many ways to style her:
- Tied up with a knot on one side or both sides
- Knotted in the front or the back
- Belted under the bust
- As a wrap dress
- Worn over leggings
- Paired with a Cassie skirt
- Topping a Julia dress
- Layer with a Lynnae (Lularoe’s new long-sleeved top)
But the best thing of all: no matter what you do to the Carly including sleeping in it (or trying to sleep in it on a plane), wadding it up in a suitcase or backpack, spilling food down the front, having baby spit-up on your shoulder, slamming it in a door, it will look fabulous with a couple of shakes and some smoothing with your hands or a quick rinse in a bathroom sink.
The founder of Lularoe, Deanne Stidham, named this dress The Carly after her daughter-in-law Carly. Is it any surprise that it is my favorite Lularoe travel dress?
Fit: This style is generously sized; size down 1 to 2 sizes. If you size up, you can create a fabulous wrap dress. Ask me how (To follow us on Facebook, click here or contact me here). Shop our website shopbaygirls.com.
