POLKA DOT PANTS

March 30th, 2015

I put together this fun Spring look with my new high-waisted polka dot pants and off the shoulder ruffly top from Morning Lavender. I’m loving patterns lately and these polka dot pants are just perfection! I also got these fun white pumps which I’m starting to think goes with just about everything! And yes I finally got some new, cheap sunnies! =P

SCALLOP SHIFT DRESS

March 26th, 2015

My love for Spring continues with this scallop shift dress from Urban Outfitters. I love the peachy color of the dress, scallop trimming throughout and simple, shift silhouette. I added even more color to the look with my new colorful floral pumps from Louise et Cie. Spring is the perfect time to mix some color into your wardrobe so why not?! It’s amazing how a little color can brighten your mood and your day!

SPRING BLUE ROMPER

March 23rd, 2015

I hope everyone had a great weekend! I worked most of Saturday (shooting some beautiful portraits at the studio) and got to spend the rest of the weekend relaxing and enjoying this beautiful weather in SoCal! I know it’s not as warm everywhere else, but it is definitely time for romper weather here in Orange County (sorry don’t mean to rub it in =P)!

I love curating gorgeous pieces for my online boutique – Morning Lavender and I especially love finding pretty, light and colorful pieces for Spring. One of my favorite finds this season is this comfy, adorable blue romper. It has sleeves, pockets and comes in just this happy shade of sky blue. I finished the look with some of my favorite new accessories. I have been searching endlessly for mules in the perfect shade of cognac and found these beauties on Nordstrom. So far they are as comfy as they are cute! Another item I have been tirelessly looking for is a go-to brown handbag that will fit my petite frame and be versatile as a satchel and crossbody. Alas I found this crossbody from Madewell. It holds everything I need it to without overwhelming my frame and it looks just as good as a shoulder bag, crossbody or satchel. As you can tell, I am a pretty particular shopper. I don’t buy just anything – I like to search until I find exactly what I need and part of the fun for me is just finding it! So Spring I’m ready for you!

LACE MIDI DRESS

March 20th, 2015

Happy first day of Spring! I really love this time of the year and I can finally wear all of my favorite soft pretty colors (not that it really stops me in the Winter) and favorite dresses and rompers. I am obsessed with my new lace dress from ASOS! I was hesitant to buy it at first because it is a longer midi length than I am used to and being so petite, I was afraid the dress would overwhelm me. But when I got it, I fell in love with the pretty blush color, lace throughout and how beautifully the dress hung. I even got some compliments from the hubs which doesn’t happen that often lol. This dress is part of ASOS‘ salon collection – their luxury special occasion line. I think it’s a beautiful dress to wear for the spring or even to a special event like a wedding or prom. I also love how the dress looks like 2 pieces but is connected by a nude lining so it has that crop top-midi skirt look without showing any skin ;) – very elegant and feminine!

STRIPES + FLARE

March 15th, 2015

Fit and flare dresses are just so much fun to wear! I especially love how flattering the shape is on just about anyone! I found this halter style stripe dress from Minkpink on Nordstrom’s website and instantly loved the shape of the dress and different details like the high neck and low halter back. I paired it with my lace ankle pumps and new pink Tory Burch shoulder bag to add that extra girlie flair. We were also kinda blessed with the 90 degree weather in SoCal this past weekend so wearing this outfit felt perfect for the weather =).

ANTHROPOLOGIE LACE ROMPER

March 12th, 2015

By now you can pretty much guess that I love lace ;). Well I found this adorable lace romper from one of my favorite stores, Anthropologie. I LOVE all of the lace detailing throughout, especially the long sleeves. This is a great weekend outfit – for brunch or afternoon out and about. I kept the rest of the look pretty simple because I thought the lace itself was such a statement. I can’t wait for Spring and the chance to wear more comfy, stylish rompers!

CHICWISH TULLE SKIRT

March 8th, 2015

Yes a girl can never have too much tulle and this darling skirt from Chicwish has just the right amount of ruffle in just the perfect color! Again I love wearing skirts high waisted and pairing them with crop tops to flatter my petite frame. Every inch counts in my case! ;)

On a side note, I can’t believe it’s March already! I am thankful for Daylight Savings – I love that it gets darker later in the day. I am wishing though that 2015 would slow down just a teeny tiny bit. Hope your month is getting off to a great start!

ANTHROPOLOGIE CARISSIMA SHEATH

March 2nd, 2015

I have been patiently waiting for Anthropologie to get this gorgeous lace sheath back in stock in my size! This dress comes in 3 gorgeous colors: navy as seen here, black and white. I chose the one in navy because I’m currently obsessed with all things blue! I love the lace detailing everywhere on this dress and the midi length and lace sleeves add an extra elegance to it. It’s a great dress to wear as a wedding guest or the perfect evening out. I probably don’t need another lace dress but there’s a reason I named my blog Lace & Locks =P.

CLASSIC COAT

February 24th, 2015

I just love a great fitting winter coat and this tweed coat from Chicwish fits just perfectly! I love the pattern and style of this warm and stylish piece. Southern California winters aren’t exactly as cold as other areas so I am able to wear it over a simple, yet adorable tulle dress as seen here. This look shows that you can wear tulle in your everyday look and not look too dressy or overdone. Who doesn’t need some tulle in their life, right?!

P.S. I’m sorry for the lack of posts lately! It has been a hectic (but exciting) month for Morning Lavender. We moved into a brand new warehouse and office and had 3 successful pop-up shops – all in February! Thank you everyone for your love and support!
