LEMON MIDI SKIRT

July 22nd, 2016

Bonjour from Paris! I fell in love with this lemon midi skirt for our Morning Lavender boutique and I knew I had to pack it for our trip to Paris! I just LOVE the lemon print and the flare shape of this skirt. Plus it comes in XS so it fits us petite gals quite well :). One of our favorite things to do in Paris is just to walk around and take in all of the beautiful sights (and we may or may not have been playing PokemonGo as well). I wore this skirt walking around the beautiful Tuileries Garden in Paris and got so many compliments. It was the perfect feminine skirt for such a romantic city!

FLORAL MAXI SHORTS JUMPSUIT

July 15th, 2016

I’m blogging again from Italy and again from the beautiful Grand Hotel A Villa Feltrinelli. The scene was so breathtaking and I knew I had to wear this fabulous floral maxi shorts jumpsuit from my boutique Morning Lavender for dinner one evening. I just love how flowy and comfortable this jumpsuit is and it was perfect on the dock, overlooking Lake Garda. Besides being the perfect outfit seaside, I also think it makes a great wedding guest outfit that really stands out! This dress was a part of our #CBLxML collection and sold out the first time. We just restocked it so make sure to get your hands on one this time!

Thanks to my hubs for the amazing photography as usual!

WHITE TULLE SKIRT

July 14th, 2016

When packing for our Eurotrip, I knew I wanted to bring some of my favorite feminine pieces as we are visiting some of the most romantic, picturesque spots in Europe. After Tuscany, we traveled to Lake Garda in Northern Italy. The area is stunning with lake and mountain views and our resort Villa Feltrinelli was out of this world. I will be sharing more about the hotel in a later post but for now I wanted to share this pretty black and white look that stands out with the gorgeous colorful backdrop of the hotel. I love the fullness of white tulle skirt and I love that whenever I wear a tulle skirt, I just feel extra feminine. It’s just a great way to make a statement anywhere you go!

SALE: NORDSTROM ANNIVERSARY SALE!

July 14th, 2016

I may be traveling internationally but I never miss a good sale! Nordstrom’s Anniversary Sale is here and I’m excited for all of the cute things for this fall! If you have a Nordstrom’s card, you can shop now with early access!

I know it’s still warm outside but it’s never too early to shop for fall, especially with these great deals! One of my favorite go-to dresses is on sale! I wore a mauve color version of this cute swing dress here but they have great fall colors on sale in the same style! There’s a navy version of one of my favorite pleated midi skirts that I wore in a blog post here.

I just bought myself this cute faux leather jacket that will look great with my collection of midi skirts and maxi dresses. For fall layering, I found this cute camel vest, draped burgundy sweater and pink feminine coat. I also love getting my fall boots during this sale and picked up these super cute and (hopefully comfy) grey TOMS booties. I’ve beens searching for a pair of grey booties and I love that these are under $100! I love walking around in wedge booties and found these great black tall wedge boots.

It’s also not too early to think about holiday gifts and it’s a great time to load up on great gifts like this Tory Burch wallet.

Here are some of my favorite sale pieces:

OFF THE SHOULDER FLORAL MAXI DRESS

July 10th, 2016

Ciao from Italy again! The hubs and I are still on our summer Eurotrip and thanks to our wifi hotspot, I’ve been able to document our adventures on the blog, Instagram and Snapchat (lacenlocks)! One of the best decisions we made so far on this trip was renting a car for our stay in beautiful Tuscany! With the car, we are able to see most of the gorgeous landscape and stop for spontaneous photos when stumbling upon breathtaking spots like this cypress tree road. For our travel, I knew I had to pack this lovely off the shoulder floral maxi dress which screamed summer with it’s bright yellow color, pretty floral pattern and trending off the shoulder style. I love how the dress stands out among the trees and how easy it is to wear for day or night. Traveling fashion for me is all about comfortability and versatility while still looking cute! Also it helps to bring non-bulky items, especially when traveling for an extended period of time! Hope you are enjoying our posts – more to come!

TUSCANY SUNFLOWER FIELDS

July 8th, 2016

The hubs and I are really blessed for the opportunity to shoot a beautiful wedding in Tuscany this weekend at the amazing venue La Foce! We are even more lucky to have jobs we love and travel together as the #huanderinghuangs! We went a few days early to do some location scouting, eat extra pasta/gelato and of course take in the beautiful scenery. I have been dying the find the gorgeous sunflower fields in Tuscany and happy to see they were in bloom right now. I put on this floral summer maxi dress and twirled away in the endless fields as we watched the sunset and my husband per usual, got some great shots!

Stay tuned as I blog more of our Europe trip! Follow me on Instagram @laceandlocks and Snapchat @lacenlocks where I will be sharing more of our trip regularly!

WHITE JEANS & STRIPES

July 1st, 2016

What better time to wear white jeans than the summer?! And yes my love for off the shoulder tops continues as I paired it with the jeans for a great 4th of July casual and cute look. And yes I LIVE in my mules. Unfortunately I bought them last year so they are now sold out. But I found these pair of mules that are very close in color and style!

DENIM BOW DRESS

June 24th, 2016

I’ve been wearing a lot of denim lately (see denim off the shoulder top and denim off the shoulder dress), but I couldn’t help but get another denim piece when it’s this cute! I love the front bow and how the cutout emphasizes the bow. I aslo loved the fact that Topshop offered this in petite sizes! With the boater hat, I’m feeling a bit French in this outfit and it makes me even more anxious for our trip to France next month! Stay tuned!

MORNING LAVENDER MAXI JUMPSUIT

June 22nd, 2016

During the past several months, the Morning Lavender team and I have been working with the amazingly stylish and hilarious Kathleen of Carrie Bradshaw Lied. We wanted to start a series of curated collections for Morning Lavender featuring some of our favorite fashionistas that would represent our brand well. Kathleen was one of our favorite bloggers from the beginning and her engaging personality made it even more enjoyable collaboration! We had a blast during our Palm Springs Lookbook shoot! This outfit here is one of my favorites from our #CBLxML collaboration. I love that it looks like a maxi dress but it’s really a jumpsuit! The shorts make it super comfortable to wear and the flowiness of the maxi makes you feel so fabulous. As the owner of the boutique, I wish that every item we carry fits me well, but sadly (or as my husband says gladly) I am very petite and not all styles are made for petite gals like myself. This particular maxi jumpsuit has an elastic waist so I feel like it stretches for your body and the cut makes it flattering on just about everyone. I rounded up some of my other petite-friendly styles from our #CBLxML collaboration below. I’m working on bringing more of them to Morning Lavender! Hurry though – some of the items are already selling out!

I also just got these new platform shoes and they are surprisingly super comfy! I love that they give me the added height I need but also looks very stylish!
