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.
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!
I wanna dedicate this blog post to my amazing husband! Not only does he allow me to play dress up and take fun photos like this (trust me, we are waaaay better behind the camera), but he has been the constant support behind all of my crazy, ongoing ideas. His unselfish, calm and caring demeanor allows me to be who I am and dream bigger than ever. He has been so incredibly supportive since I started this blog and my boutique. He has learned way more about fashion than he ever wanted to and is probably tired of me asking him to shoot me in “squares”. I can’t imagine life without this incredible man and I thankful to be on this journey of life and love with him!
Ok now lets talk about this stunning black tulle maxi skirt from Space 46 Boutique! You may remember last year’s Valentine’s Day post featuring a pink midi skirt from Space 46 Boutique – well I wanted to share a dressier and more classic look that year with this maxi version that I has been sitting in my closet and screaming for me to wear. This skirt is seriously magical and makes you feel so elegant and pretty instantly when you put it on. It’s the perfect skirt to wear for your very special evening out and for your truly Carrie Bradshaw-in-Paris moment.
I mean who knew a skort could be so pretty?! I instantly fell in love with the beautiful design and flowiness of this skort from Skort – Vivian Chan . It comes in white or black, but I love the white version of a perfect, pretty in pink Valentine’s Day look. As you know I’m obsessed with anything with bows so I had to add in some of my favorite pieces from my closet. I love how romantic this look feels from head-to-toe!
It’s no secret I am obsessed with two piece matching sets and this lace two piece set from For Love & Lemon for its beautiful cobalt blue color. I love the long sleeve lace detailing, which is one of the specialties For Love & Lemon is know for. I also adore this brand because their XS size fits me so well and is chic and sexy at the same time. This is a great look for an evening out and a perfect way to add some color at night!
I love combining pretty colors – such as this love combination of pink + grey. These pretty hues add a feminine flair to what is considered a casual look. I am in love with my new roll up chinos from Banana Republic which are comfy and flattering at the same time. I am also wearing my new crossbody tote bag from Madewell which is the perfect size for me! I love how you can wear it three ways: crossbody, on one side, or as a satchel. It holds everything I need without overwhelming my petite frame.
I personally think women are pretty easy to shop for – basically shoes, purses and/or pretty things. Here are some of my top picks, in completely random order (but I’ll take one of each please). Are you listening honey?!
Here’s my final look with the pretty Morning Lavender two piece lace set. I just HAD to post one of my favorite ways to wear a crop top – paired with a maxi skirt! I love how this combination is so flattering – especially for petite gals like me. I get asked pretty often about this yellow skirt, which sold out on ASOS quickly. Well after searching over a year for an equivalent beauty, I have finally found it!!!!! And when I found it, I just knew I had to offer it on my boutique, Morning Lavender! This skirt is actually much fuller than my ASOS skirt and has more of a chartreuse tint to it. I had to get the waist taken in a tad bit so I could wear it higher on my waist (again to add some height illusion =)). But because I wear my skirts higher on the waist, I didn’t have to get the length altered (I’m also wearing 4 inch heels in these photos)! We shot this on a super windy day in Los Angeles so I had that perfect skirt wind wherever I walked! My hair didn’t fair as well with the wind – oh well! I hope you will enjoy this skirt as much as I do!
Happy Monday folks! Here is my 3rd look with the versatile lace two piece set from Morning Lavender! I wanted to style a look appropriate for the office/work with the lace skirt. I paired it with a cropped tweed jacket also from Morning Lavender and my new cute bow clutch from Kate Spade (yes I love bows as much as I love lace). I love how the lace skirt can be stylish but it’s length and neutral color makes it appropriate for the workplace. Stay tuned for my fourth and final look coming later this week!
Here is the 2nd way I styled the lace two piece set from Morning Lavender. I paired the lace crop top with a comfy boyfriend jeans and heels (to give myself some added height). I can’t get enough of this casual, yet chic look – what you will usually find me wearing on the weekends =P.
