SCALLOP BODYCON DRESS

February 21st, 2017

Valentine’s may be over but that doesn’t mean you have to stop searching for gorgeous date night outfits. I love this bodycon dress because although it’s very sexy in cut and shape, I love the feminine touches in the pretty hue and the scallop detailing. Due to its bodycon nature, the dress isn’t as forgiving as others so I made sure to eat a lighter meal before wearing this sexy number! I got a “wow” from the hubs when he saw me in this so I guess he approves ;).

SLEEVELESS & STRIPED

February 17th, 2017

I previously wore this pretty sleeveless trench as a dress with high boots for Fall but here I’m showing how to wear it differently as an outer layer and as a great Spring transition piece. I paired it with one of my closet must-haves – an easy-to-wear striped dress that pretty much goes with anything. I especially love packing this dress when I travel because there are so many ways to wear it. Going into Spring, I’m also wearing a lot of booties and peep-toed shoes as I’m storing some of the bigger boots for next Fall. Here I’m wearing this comfy pair from Naturalizer and if you use my code LNL20 at checkout, you can save 20% off!

YELLOW FLORAL MAXI DRESS

February 15th, 2017

February is halfway here and I can’t believe we are almost transitioning into Spring! To transition to Spring, I’ve been updating my wardrobe with more color and more floral. This yellow floral maxi dress I curated for Morning Lavender is a pretty and perfect transition to Spring! I am obsessed with the bright pop of yellow and the flattering wrap style of the dress. Plus the high-low hem of the dress makes it petite friendly for gals like me ;).

PRETTY BOW DRESS

February 6th, 2017

If you know me, you know I’m obsessed with anything with bows so naturally when I found this darling Bow Dress, I was in love! The dress has a flattering fit and flare shape and the low back adds a interesting and adorable detail. This dress is perfect for your Valentine’s date night but also for a fun event or party. It has the right amount of cuteness and fun!

RED OFF THE SHOULDER SWEATER DRESS

February 1st, 2017

If you have been following my blog, you know I love off the shoulder styles. I found this burgundy red off the shoulder sweater dress and I knew it would make a perfect Valentine’s date night dress. I love the fitted shape of the dress and how it hugs your body in a flattering way. This is probably the simplest look I’ve put together for Valentine’s Day compared to past years. You can find me in dressier looks with this pink tulle skirt and this black maxi tulle skirt.

BEIGE PLEATED MAXI SKIRT

January 27th, 2017

Pale Dogwood is one of the pantone colors of the year and our Morning Lavender Pleated Maxi Skirt is the perfect shade of beige nude. I love how flowy the skirt is with the pretty pleats! The skirt does run a tad long for us petite gals so I hemmed it a bit and wore some pretty tall heels. I’m also a fan of wearing skirts high on the waist to elongate the lower half of your body. I added an edge to this feminine skirt by layering it with a fitted faux leather jacket. Our Morning Lavender clothes are meant to be feminine but as seen here, if you style it a certain way, you can change the vibe of the whole look! It’s important to me when curating for the shop that I include versatile and classic pieces that many women can enjoy.

Chartreuse & Camel

January 24th, 2017

I’m loving camel so much this season and this Topshop camel coat has been on constant rotation and a staple for my closet. The coat I’m wearing here was purchased in a Petite size but it has sold out since. I linked another camel coat here. Camel is such a versatile, neutral color and I loved pairing it here with a fun color in this chartreuse, colorful mini skirt. I’m slowly adding more color into my wardrobe as we begin to transition out of Winter.

#PerfectNever

January 22nd, 2017

I don’t have resolutions. I have goals and one of my goals for 2017 is to workout more consistently. It’s not about losing weight or looking good but really about being healthy. I realize I’ll never have the perfect body but as I’m getting older, I’m seeing the long term effects of how you treat your body. I’ve cut out a lot of my bad habits (soda, coffee, processed snacks) and focus on being healthier and feeling better. I love that Reebok is promoting the journey of self improvement and they designed this gorgeous collection to keep you motivated and stylish!

CAMEL OFF THE SHOULDER SWEATER

January 20th, 2017

Hello 2017! This my first blog post of the year and I want to apologize for being so MIA these past few months. I’ve been juggling being a girlboss/wife/daughter/sister/friend. I spent A LOT of time since September traveling back and forth to San Francisco as we opened our first Morning Lavender Boutique! It has been an intensely rewarding last few months and I’m so proud of what our team has accomplished! Things are finally settled at our SF boutique which means I will be home a bit more and able to get back to some of my regular routine like blogging! I’ve been living in this cozy and stylish off the shoulder camel sweater. I love wearing trendy pieces that are also extremely comfortable and versatile.

I also finally got the chance to wear these Stuart Weitzman Highland Over the Knee Boots that I bought for myself over Christmas. I’ve been eyeing them for so long that I decided to finally #treatmyself and give in to these beauties. I am surprised at how comfortable they are and so far they have not scrunched or sagged down which I found to be a problem with other suede over the knee boots. I love them so much already that I’m contemplating getting them in black too!

THE PERFECT FRINGE SHAWL

December 7th, 2016

Say hello to the perfect fringe shawl! I’ve been wearing this cozy cardigan everywhere – over a slim black dress like this or paired with my favorite high-waisted jeans and booties. It has the perfect amount of drape, comes in a gorgeous taupe color and looks way more elegant than the price. Note: it’s sold out in size Small (which I’m wearing) BUT I’ve tried on both the size Medium & Large and the main difference in sizes is the length of the back. I almost went with the Large size because I wanted a longer length in the back! Hurry and get yours because they have already sold out in our San Francisco boutique!

I also wanted to take some time today and thank everyone for the support of my boutique business! We recently opened our first Morning Lavender brick-and-mortar boutique in San Francisco so I’ve been commuting back and forth from Orange County on a weekly basis as we staff the store and get things settled! It has been a DREAM and we are overwhelmed with all of the love and support. I haven’t had much time for myself lately, especially to shop so the blog has been a bit slower but I promise to get back to styling some great looks for you all!
