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.
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!
Eeeek I can’t believe it’s almost September already?! I swear it was just the new year! I love Fall & the holidays but it makes me sad to know another year is almost over! What does make me feel better are all of those incredible Labor Day Sales! I compiled some sales from some of my favorite retailers for y’all! Happy Shopping!
Up to 50% off select full price sales like this! No code needed! YES!
Up to 40% off clearance items like this! And there are actually small sizes still left…hurry though!
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!
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.
By now you can tell that I love anything girlie and romantic. I pretty much fell in love when I saw this gorgeous floral pencil skirt from Kate Spade. Everything I love came in such a pretty package – pink, rosy and midi. I also found this petite friendly peplum jacket from Topshop that I absolutely adore in this lovely shade of blush pink. It goes wonderfully with everything!
I’m sorry for the lack of posts lately! It’s been a crazy few weeks with work but I promise I have a lot of posts coming up! I love wearing this shift dress from Liberty Sage because it is so chic and comfortable at the same time! Plus it is a beautiful shade of gray! I also love dressing up simple pieces like this dress by adding sparking jewelry, fun shoes and a larger handbag.
I have to be honest – when I’m buying for my boutique, I am searching for items that I would personally wear. When I saw this polka dot floral midi skirt – I knew I was in love! It’s all the girliness I love wrapped up in one beautiful skirt – polka dots, flowers, a great classic length and oh did I mention pockets?! I paired this skirt with this simple white dress also from Morning Lavender that I actually wore as a top. I love simple dresses that can also be versatile separates!
I also wore this outfit as a part of my fun collaboration with STYLISH PETITE, who is just as sweet as she is stylish! And I did I mention we are practically the same size?! We had a fun time dressing up as girlie girls and I hope you will join us as we co-host Morning Lavender’s first POP-UP SHOP on August 3, 2014 at Social Beauty Lounge in Corona Del Mar, CA! You can find me information below. Please come say hello and join us for a fun day of shopping with sweets, live beats and a girly, good time!
For some reason when I put on this Bardot dress, I feel kinda like a babe. The dress is sexy and fun at the same time with colorful stripes and a halter style back. It’s the perfect dress for a weekend date and to wear with my favorite new purchase from the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale ;). I guess I’m a sucker for dresses, clutches and sales!
I love how a nice jacket can transform any look! Here I am wearing one of my favorite skirts of the moment – this pretty tulle beauty from my boutique, Morning Lavender. The look is pretty, simple and sweet. I added this fitted stripe blazer Zara and of course my favorite sunnies from Topshop and suddenly the look is more classic and dressy. If I worked in a normal office environment, I wouldn’t be afraid to rock my tulle skirt like this :). But of course, I could also wear tulle skirts everyday, anywhere!
