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!
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!

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.
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!
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!
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?
Here are some of the looks I have been currently wearing while on vacation. I love to keep it simple, stylish and not overpack (my hubs thanks me too). You can also find these looks on my Instagram with the links. You can also sign up for Liketoknow.it (see also link on my sidebar called “SHOP MY FEED”) and you if you like my photo on IG, you will receive a personal email directly with the links on where to purchase the featured items!
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!
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!
I’ve been lusting over off the shoulder looks of late and this dress in a pretty color from ASOS is stylish and comfortable. I’ve also been a big fan of neutral accessories and my summer go-to-bag is this versatile cross body from Madewell. It works with a variety of looks and perfect for traveling! Guess where the hubs and I are off to next?!
