I love wearing stripes and the 4th of July is a good time as any to wear this pattern! I love this fit and flare dress from Topshop with it’s baby blue stripes and cute cutouts. This dress has a great shape that is flattering and makes you feel dainty.
We are actually photographing a destination wedding this 4th of July in Bristol, Rhode Island. We love traveling to new pieces and capturing such beautiful memories for our couples. We couldn’t ask for a better way to spend the holiday! Follow us along Instagram to see more!
I love dressing up but most days I’m dressing down, especially when it’s summertime and hot! I love finding easy-to-wear pieces that are comfortable and stylish. These new scallop shorts I curated for Morning Lavender are so darling and versatile. I love the self-tying bow belt and the pop of color it adds to my summer wardrobe.
This week my husband and I are headed to Boston, Bristol and New York City for some photoshoots and of course yummy food! We are blessed to get to travel for our jobs and love exploring new cities. Follow us along Instagram to see more!
By now, you know my fondness for lace and rompers. Get them together and add pockets and I’m in love! Summer is the perfect time of the year to wear rompers and I especially love wearing ones that you can easily transition to night. I curated this particular one for Morning Lavender because I just love the delicate detail throughout, contrasting nude lining underneath and open key hole back. There are so many details of this romper – it’s hard to believe how inexpensive it is!
It’s been pretty gloomy here in SoCal but that hasn’t stopped me from dressing up for the Summer! I love wearing maxi dresses all year round, but I especially love wearing them in the Summer for all of the pretty prints and colors. I found this darling polka dot maxi dress from Ann Taylor and it is currently on SALE with other dresses and skirts for 40% OFF with code PRETTY40! I love the soft blue hue of this maxi and I love that I didn’t have it alter it a bit.
Thanks for stopping by! The husband and I are off to a destination wedding today and we can’t wait to share photos! Follow me on Instagram to see all about our travels!
Last week I was in Dallas for a Morning Lavender event and I also got a chance to spend some extra time with the in-laws (my husband is originally from Dallas) and also visit one of my favorite designers! Nha Khanh was my wedding dress designer and has turned into a good friend and incredible #girlboss inspiration. She is a wonderful business woman and designer, as well as wife and mother. I love supporting fellow women entrepreneurs and I have always been in love with her beautiful, feminine designs. I knew when I got married that she was the designer for me. Fortunately for many, her beautiful designs can be found on Rent the Runway, including this gorgeous navy tulle dress seen. It’s fun, flirty and feminine and perfect to wear to weddings. I’m a big advocate of this sight and have seen many girls at weddings use this option. You might not wear it again so why not pick a designer beauty from a great site like Rent the Runway? The site lets you choose a free 2nd size in case your first choice does not fit and my favorite part is seeing real life examples of the dress on real people with real measurements. It is especially useful for petite gals like me because dresses are often too long or overwhelming.
Tokyo has always fascinated me and been on my “I-need-to-go-to” places. So when the hubs asked me randomly one day in early April if I wanted to go to D.C. to see cherry blossoms, I replied “lets just go to Japan!”. I found a great deal on Singapore Airlines and we booked our tickets 2 weeks before our travel. It was spontaneous but when you are busy as we are and find a window of available time, you take it. And let me just say I’m so glad we did! Japan was amazing! We fell in love with the culture and food. There were so many amazing sites to see and everyone we met (for the most part) were kind, respectful and helpful. We traveled everywhere conveniently by train (why can’t the States be more like this?!) and we were able to visit 5 cities including Tokyo and Kyoto. We unfortunately caught the tail end of the cherry blossoms so we weren’t able to experience it in full bloom. Nevertheless it was still a beautiful site to see and I was lucky enough to be traveling with my best friend/love-of-my-life/photographer.
I’m a big fan of full floral skirts and an even bigger fan of them when they are under $50! This darling floral skirt from Skirt – Chicwish has gorgeous pleats, layers and a pretty blue pattern throughout. I wore this lovely look yesterday in Dallas and it was perfect for this warm weather. My husband’s family is from Dallas and I always enjoy visiting and exploring since a nice city. Hope everyone is having a great week as well!
It’s no secret that I have a deep obsession with tulle skirts. This newest one from Morning Lavender is utter perfection. I may be a lil biased since I curated myself but when I first saw it, I knew I had to have it! This skirt has a stiff tulle and mesh layer that just gives it a gorgeous shape and the layer of beautiful lace adds extra femininity to it. I wanted to show how to dress up a light tulle skirt for an evening out by wearing it with a chic blazer blazer and adding darker accessories like my handbag and shoes it. A crystal necklace dresses it up a notch as well.
Wishing everyone a wonderful weekend! I will be heading to Dallas for a Morning Lavender event and to visit the husband’s family!
For this week’s Wedding Wednesday, I decided to share something I have been working on the past few months: Morning Lavender’s New Bridal Shower Collection! It was inspired by my love for all things weddings, romantic and girlie. With wedding season here, I wanted to provide beautiful and affordable dresses that brides and wedding guests could wear. I think we went a little crazy with the lace ;). Our collection was also recently featured on Style Me Pretty as we worked with an amazing team of vendors to bring this lovely vision to life. Here are some of my favorite images from the shoot, captured by me and the hubs:
Today’s post shows a classic mix of closet essentials: a stripe skirt, fitted white button down shirt and a classic beige trench coat. I combined these pieces for an effortless look that is stylish and never goes out of style. I particularly love this navy stripe skirt from Chicwish because it has the right amount of pleats and flare. Their XS fits me perfectly and doesn’t overwhelm my petite frame. I added some modern updates to the look with oversized sunglasses and suede pointy pumps.
