I’m adding some color to my Spring wardrobe with this gorgeous colorblock maxi dress. I am absolutely in love with the mix of shades of blue, pink and white in this beautiful dress as well as the lovely pleating. I wear mostly Petite sizing from ASOS but with the adjustable straps in this dress, I was able to wear the length on this dress without any alterations! By dressing up this look with the right accessories, it’s perfect to wear to Spring/Summer weddings.
Today I’m all about comfy, casual and cute in this Spring floral dress from Everly Clothing. As a buyer for Morning Lavender, we actually carry quite a few pieces from Everly Clothing as we love their beautiful fabrics and prints. I particularly love this new off the shoulder floral romper we curated for the shop! I accessorized this pretty peachy dress with some easy-to-wear, everyday essentials like my favorite reversible tote and a belt to create more shape to my frame.
On other note, I have a fun weekend planned celebrating two good friends’ wedding! Can’t wait to relax and just have some fun!
Being petite, I’m always looking for ways to look taller and these wide leg pants perfectly elongate my frame. The size 00P from Banana Republic is pretty true to size and I wore them with my tallest wedges so I didn’t have to get the length altered at all. Yes I’ve always been obsessed with off the shoulder tops and this crop top, stripe version from my boutique, Morning Lavender pairs so well with the pants and keeps the illusion that my legs are longer than they really are =P.
Last year we had the most amazing time visiting Japan but we were sad that we had just missed the cherry blossoms by one week! We decided to go again this year with some friends in search for the beautiful sakura trees and let me tell you how magical they were!!! As amazing as my husband photographer is, our photos don’t even compare to the beautiful experience when you are there among the gorgeous, blossoming trees. I highly recommend a visit to Japan to experience this at least once in your life and to eat the most delicious ramen too ;).
I wanted to share some photos from our trip, some of which you might have caught on my Instagram. My wonderful #instagramhusband obliged as I made him row the boat and take my photos at the same time. Love you baby!
Snapchatting and using face swap way tooo much (follow me at lacenlocks)!
Eating the best katsudon ever for only 10,000 yen! I’m still thinking about it by the way.
Eating the best tsukemen ramen of my life at Afuri Ramen. I’m still thinking about it too.
Visiting the newly opened Hedgehog Cafe called Harry.
Drinking amazing craft cocktails at Gen Yamamoto.
Karaoke after all-you-can-drink for 2 hours at $13 per person 🙂
Eating melt-in-your-mouth again… kobe steak in Kobe
Creating wonderful and silly memories with my amazing husbands and friends!
Looking at these photos makes me really want to go back again next year! We have some more international trips planned this year so stay tuned!
I’m finally back and sorry I haven’t blogged in a while! I’ve been catching up on tons of work and excited to bring some new, fresh content to you all!
It’s definitely been warm here in SoCal so I’m going light & classic on the blog today. I’m wearing this fun and comfortable polka dot dress from Ann Taylor who is having a 40% off all full priced items SALE this weekend! I love the fit of this dress and how a classic style is changed up a bit with a high neck and bow belt.
I love this combination of pleats and stripes! I added a seasonal twist to a classic pleated skirt with this fun, ruffly striped off the shoulder top which I’m wearing with just about everything these days! I’m less insecure about my shoulders than arms so why not show a little shoulder these days?! 😉
Well the hubs and I are off to chase cherry blossoms again this year in Japan! Follow me on Snapchat @lacenlocks and Instagram @laceandlocks to see our adventures!
I’m a sucker for striped skirts (see my previous navy striped skirt post) and what feminine gal doesn’t love a classic black and white combo?! I love how this skirt flares like a bell and it’s petite friendly sizing from ASOS prevents the horizontal stripes from overwhelming me. I went classic with this look with a cute bow top, my favorite Chanel and my new, pretty bow pumps.
Last Spring (with much longer hair), I fell in love with this off the shoulder floral dress from ASOS. Well this year, they came out with a more colorful version in bright Spring colors and I just had to get it as I love the fit and style so much! I think this beautiful dress is a serious contender for my search for a wedding guest dress! It does run tight so I might not be able to eat as much ;).
On another note, looking back at last year’s post, I’m still debating whether to grow my hair out or keep it short! I also had more of side part with the longer hair. So what do y’all think, should I keep my hair short or grow it out?!
ASOS is having a SHOP MORE, SAVE MORE SALE where the more you spend, the more you save! Be sure to take advantage of this sale which ends on 3/29/2016 if you plan to buy this dress!
