We Got Buttons!

I love finding new style hacks to change up my LuLaRoe. Recently, I discovered buttons! All you need are some coins and elastics to create a variety of looks with your favorite LuLaRoe dresses and/or tops. I have teenage daughters so the change in my purse or cupholder in my car is limited (LOL), so I went on Amazon and bought a few different sizes of round wood chips.

I really like adding buttons to my Carlys. I’m only a whopping 5 feet tall so it shortens to dress a little bit and my XXS hits me at my knees. Woohoo! Check out my dazzling modeling skills below to see how super cute my buttons look. These are 1-inch one wood chips, with clear small elastic hair bands.

At first, I worried that I may damage the fabric. When I took off the elastics, I noticed embossed circles left behind. But, after one wash, the fabric went right back to normal. This has been the case with a variety of fabrics I have tried this with. I definitely wouldn’t recommend washing with the chips still locked in place.


I used the larger 1.5-inch wood chips with the outfit above. Looks adorable! That’s a Carly and Joy. I love wearing a Joy with just about any LuLaRoe style. It’s like a security blanket for me. Makes me feel all cozy and pretty, without worrying about showing off all of my own perceived imperfections. We all have our hang-ups, but the Joy gets me past all of that. And, bam, I feel like a million bucks!


Who doesn’t love a sweet Julia? The buttons on the side are awesome! Pair this baby with a cute pair of pink Chucks and you’re on your way for the day! Holy moly, it’s adorable. The buttons also create a ruching effect that pulls the fabric in just the right way to hide any tummy issues you may have. BONUS!
