CAPE AND THE CITY

October 16th, 2014

I spent last week in one of my favorite cities – NYC! I especially love being there this time of the year to experience the lovely fall weather (we don’t get seasons here in Southern California) and it was a real treat just getting to wear all of my new favorite fall sweaters and jackets. I am obsessed with this new cape we have from Morning Lavender! I wore it on the plane, on the streets and even dressed up to go out at night and it kept me so warm and made me feel so stylish!

BOWS & STRIPES

October 6th, 2014

Hi my name is Kim Le and I am addicted to midi skirts and bows. I try not to wear skirts everyday but when you find a beauty like this one, you can’t really help it! When I bought this one for my boutique, I knew I had to keep one for myself! I named it Belle because it has this great bell shape to it and it really makes you feel so girlie when you wear it! And I knew I had to pair it with my favorite new heels – these darling bow pumps from ASOS!

SOHO STYLE

October 1st, 2014

Here is the last look from our trip to NYC! This entire look including the clutch and shoes totaled under $200! I love finding affordable clothing that doesn’t look cheap. The most expensive part of this look is actually the shoes which I purchased for about $70 on sale from Nordstrom last year. Here I combined one of my new fall skirts from Morning Lavender with a cropped tee and cropped blazer to help me look a lil’ bit taller =P. I’m excited to be going back to NYC next week for work! Can’t wait to experience some real fall weather!

And how great are these images taken by the hubs?! I found this super cool wall in Soho and the rest is his creative eye!

FALL DATE

September 17th, 2014

The hubs and I recently took a fun trip to NYC for our 1 year anniversary (wow time flies) and for NYFW. Our trips usually consist of eating and more eating. Since it was our anniversary, we took some time to celebrate by having a date night and watching the hilarious Book of Mormon on Broadway. Here is our date night look where I took one of my favorite tulle skirts from Morning Lavender that I have been wearing all summer and transitioned it to a more fall look by pairing it with a darker navy sweater and dressing it up a bit with a gorgeous crystal necklace. Jason wore a gray and navy combo that complemented my look but wasn’t too matchy-matchy.

OUR WEDDING

September 4th, 2014

So this blog post is a lil’ delayed – 1 year to be exact! Today marks our 1 year wedding anniversary! I am so blessed to be married to such a loving, dedicated, handsome and hard working man. We have a pretty interesting story on how we met, but to give you the short version – we are wedding photographers that met a wedding and fell in love. So when it was time to plan our wedding, we thought of the hundreds of weddings we have both shot and knew that we wanted something different and knew that we wanted it feel more like a vacation for our closest families and friends. So we gathered our loved ones and brought them all the way to France with us! All 80 of them! We are so blessed that so many of our families and friends journeyed so far to celebrate with us. It was quite the planning experience (yes there were a few bridezilla breakdowns) but in the end it was more than we could have possibly imagined.

Here are just a few of our favorite memories from our favorite day by our photographer Ethan Yang. I will try to do a more detailed post later on and what inspired all of the DIY details, fashion, location, etc… If you want to see more in depth of what went on, be sure to also watch our amazing wedding film by our videographer, Joe Simon at the end of the post.

BOHO CHIC

September 2nd, 2014

I love me a maxi dress that can be stylish and comfy at the same time. This one from my shop, Morning Lavender comes in a pretty paisley print and has tons of boho flair to it. Its warmer tones and longer sleeves make it an easy summer-to-fall transition piece. Because it’s still warm and summery in Socal, I paired the dress with my favorite wedges and summer hat. I’m still loving the warm weather although I have a huge obsession with fall clothes as well!

CLASSIC LACE

August 27th, 2014

We still have about a month left of summer so I’m taking full advantage by wearing as much white lace as I can right now! I found this gorgeous lace dress from Chicwish and I just love the lace throughout, collar and midi length. I paired it with black accessories for a classic black & white look. I’m excited for the fall fashion but I’m not quite ready to let go of my summer favorites just yet!

PASTEL ROMPER

August 18th, 2014

Hello everyone! I hope y’all had a great weekend! This weekend I will be in Vegas for the MAGIC tradeshow representing Morning Lavender. I love traveling and usually when I do, I pack rompers and maxi dresses because they are quite versatile and easy to wear. So I thought it would be fitting to start the week off with this pretty pastel look I put together! I am wearing one of my current favorite rompers from Morning Lavender. I love this one because of the sleeves and the length of it is actually longer than most rompers (not that I really need the extra length) – these features make the romper more sophisticated and dressy so I can wear it to a lunch meeting or an event.
