RED SWING DRESS

September 3rd, 2015

I’ve been really into swing dresses lately and I don’t wear red too often but I couldn’t resist this cute and comfortable number from ASOS! And the best part is it’s under $33!

On another note, I was home for only 12 out of 31 days in August so I apologize for the lack of posts lately! It’s been crazy busy but that’s a good thing, right?! I have tons of new fall items to share so check back again soon!

LACE MIDI DRESS

August 21st, 2015

I found this body hugging lace midi dress from For Love & Lemons and I am in love! I love all of the lace detailing, especially the sleeves and back. It comes with a nude slip to give it a great sheer look but covers up the areas you need ;). P.S. I didn’t realize how tan I was until I wore this all white look!

LACE & DENIM

August 19th, 2015

This lace midi skirt is definitely one of my favorite finds as a buyer for Morning Lavender. I just love how feminine the skirt is and plus it has pleats and pockets! It’s literally perfection in lace. I paired this girlie skirt with another classic staple – the denim shirt. A denim shirt is a versatile piece – great for layering and adding a different, casual vibe to any look. It also makes for a great summer to fall transition look!

ASOS SLEEVELESS BLAZER

August 17th, 2015

It’s tricky for me to find a blazer that fits well due to my petite size. Luckily ASOS has a petite line that offers blazers in petite sizes with great styles and fits! I have been searching for a sleeveless blazer/vest that doesn’t overwhelm me and I love the look and feel of this one! There are so many ways you can style a sleeveless blazer – you can dress it up for work or dress it down with jeans. I did a combination look here by wearing it with my new favorite denim skirt and adding a dressy handbag and heels.

PINK HALTER DRESS

August 14th, 2015

I am really obsessed with this pink halter dress from ASOS! I just love how feminine it is with its fit and flare shape and light pink color, but is also sexy at the same time with a deep plunge neckline and low open back. The dress comes in a scuba material that helps retain it’s feminine shape and adds extra flair to the entire look. An added bonus is the dress comes in petite sizes so it was a perfect midi length for me. It’s definitely one of those dresses that you just neeeeed in your closet!

SWING MAXI DRESS

August 12th, 2015

Can I just talk about how much I love this dress from Chicwish?! It’s just so light, flowy and pretty! It actually comes with a tie on sash for your waist for a more fitted look but I decided to wear it more loose and flowy for a swing dress type of look. I don’t think you can go wrong either way. And did I mention the dress is on sale for $62?! Gotta love online shopping!

SWEETHEART FLORAL MIDI DRESS

August 10th, 2015

Happy Monday everyone!!! If you follow me on social media, you will notice something’s changed with this blog post! I finally cut my hair! I mean it’s been like 15 years people! Maybe it’s because I turned 35 last week and going through some mid-life crisis but I decided to finally change things up for a bit. I have only had my hair short once in my adult life because I always felt it made me look younger and cute, which when you are in your twenties isn’t necessarily the look you are going for. Also I have the thinnest and finest hair imaginable (everyone thought I was a boy until I was 4) and so I have always been self conscious of my flat hair. Well now that I’m older and I have an amazing hair stylist I trust (go Candy at Shear bliss OC), I decided to chop off quite a bit this past Friday especially since now I wouldn’t mind looking a lil’ younger lol. So yes I’m Lace & Less Locks but so far it’s been great with this hot SoCal weather and I got the hubby’s stamp of approval :)! Now that I have shorter hair, I think it shows off my shoulders and this sweetheart floral midi dress quite nicely, don’t you think? :)

BATES MOTEL IN LOS ANGELES

August 7th, 2015

The husband and I actually stumbled upon this new art installation on a recent day out in LA. It’s kinda creepy but cool at the same time. We immediately pulled over as it was the perfect place for a photo opt and luckily I was wearing my favorite romper of the moment – this one from Morning Lavender. I love this romper because it transitions from day to night so easily. For day, I can wear it with my favorite sandals and a floppy hat or denim shirt. We were planning on meeting one of our wedding couples for drinks later that evening so I had the perfect nighttime transition for this look. For night, I threw on some evening accessories like this snakeskin Black Crop Jacket and leopard clutch. And a trick to look taller? Wear shoes that match the color of your tan ;). And if you can believe it, the husband and I got even tanner from our recent trip to Mexico!

For Love & Lemons & Urban Outfitters Tropical Leaf Dress

August 3rd, 2015

Greetings from Puerto Los Cabos! The husband and I are traveling for a workcation – we just finished photographing a beautiful wedding here and now we are spending a couple of days for some R&R and celebrating my birthday :). It’s a blessing we get to travel for work and we get to do it together! When I travel, I love packing light but also bringing pieces that suit my travels and surroundings. Cabo is such a beautiful coastal town and I thought this tropical print dress from a For Love & Lemons & Urban Outfitters collaboration would be perfect! Follow me on Instagram and Snapchat (lacenlocks) to see more of our silly adventures!
