FLOWY MAXI DRESS

September 19th, 2016

This is just one of those dresses that make you feel amaaazing. I curated this gorgeous maxi dress especially for Morning Lavender and I fell in love with it so much (as did our customers), that we now carry it in 4 amazing Fall colors! This beautiful shade of purple has been one of our best sellers and after you wear it, you’ll know why! The layers upon layers of flowy fabric make this dress such a statement in such a simple silhouette. And can we talk about the low, crisscross back?! The dress runs slightly large and long for my petite frame so I had it altered but it was so worth it. Now if only I can just stand there and twirl all the time! 😉

FALL OFFICE WEAR

September 16th, 2016

I’ve received many requests on showcasing some more work related outfits on the blog so today I’m sharing this stylish look that’s suitable for the office and versatile for other occasions as well. I use to work as a CPA in a Corporate setting so business casual was my wardrobe most of the week. Now that I’m my own #girlboss/owner of a fabulous boutique, I have the freedom to wear just about anything and retired my business casual wardrobe. I’m often at the office/warehouse so comfy shoes is pretty much my staple these days. Back then, I shopped at Banana Republic quite a bit and after visiting their site recently, I found that they still carry a lot of chic pieces perfect for work. I found the cutest bow button down shirt and darling red scallop skirt from Banana Republic and combined it with an old tweed blazer I had.  Both of these pieces can easily be re-worn with more casual looks like jeans with the shirt or a great Fall sweater with the skirt.  Although my office wear has changed, it’s fun to revisit business casual looks! I hope you enjoyed today’s post as much as I did!

CROCHET MIDI DRESS

September 12th, 2016

Today I’m sharing a great example of how to wear white after Labor Day! I love this white crochet midi dress I got this past summer and have been wanting to wear it again. I decided to do a Fall update to this dress by adding a simple black ribbon tied around the collar and black accessories to match. The self tying ribbon look is trending right now and it’s such an affordable, easy way to dress up your look. This summery white dress instantly changed into a more sophisticated look with just the right accessories! I also polished off the look with my faux leather jacket to show an even more Fall look. But it’s still pretty warm in SoCal so we haven’t quite gotten to jacket weather just yet! Hope you enjoyed this easy-to-do Fall update!

LO & SONS CATALINA DELUXE WEEKEND BAG

September 3rd, 2016

The hubs and I are off for a weekend getaway to celebrate our 3 YEAR ANNIVERSARY! How time flies when you are married and having fun ;)! We are headed for a short trip away and I thought it was the perfect time to test out my new weekend bag from Lo & Sons. Not only do I love the design and the gorgeous grey color of the bag, but the functionality of this bag is amazing! There are so many smart compartments to the bag and you can tell every functionality was thought through. The hubs and I travel a lot and I’ve been searching for a great carry-on to carry all of the random things I like to have with me on the plane. I got the the Catalina Deluxe in size Small so it wouldn’t overwhelm my frame. I love how the website shows the three sizes of the bags on three different heights to give you perspective of how the bag will look on you! My favorite part of the bag is the bottom compartment that you can access easily without opening up the whole bag. This is a great place for a pair of shoes, a sweater for the cold flight or a small makeup bag. Lo & Sons has a great video on what to pack in your weekend bag on their site so check it out HERE.

FALL JEANS

September 1st, 2016

For Fall, I love being able to dress up my jeans with just a few items that can instantly take a look from casual to dressy like a chic fitted jacket, some cute strappy heels and a stylish handbag. For today’s blog post, I’m embracing the cold shoulder trend and wearing this lovely feminine lace cold shoulder top from ASOS. I layered the look with this classic fitted jacket from Ann Taylor that I’m so obsessed about for Fall! It’s such a versatile piece that will look great for the office and the evening out.

SUEDE OVER THE KNEE BOOTS

August 30th, 2016

One of the struggles of being a petite gal is finding a pair of tall boots that actually fits! I recently found these gorgeous suede over the knee boots that surprisingly fit my small calves from Nordstrom. I just love the light tan color that goes well with a majority of my Fall pieces. I have been finding so many amazing fall shoes from Nordstrom including these adorable open toe booties and these block heel suede sandals. I completed this fall inspired look with this versatile checkered wrap from Madewell that I can comfortably wear as a cape or a layered as a scarf. I love finding pieces that create so many options!

FLORAL & BOOTIES FOR FALL

August 26th, 2016

Today I’m sharing another fun Fall outfit with Nordstrom. I’m slowly switching my wardrobe to Fall tones and finding so many new and versatile pieces from Nordstrom. I found this gorgeous printed floral shift dress in pretty Fall colors and paired it with one of my favorites from last year – this great fitting faux leather jacket. This faux leather jacket is one of my closet staples as it goes perfectly with everything from dressed to skirts and jeans.

FALL TRANSITION: STRIPED MINI SKIRT

August 22nd, 2016

I can’t believe we are two-thirds of the way done with August!!! Fall is just around the corner and for today’s blog post, I put together a great Fall transition look with Nordstrom. From Nordstrom’s site, I found a variety of must have pieces for your Fall closet. These pieces I’m sharing are truly versatile in color and style as they can be worn together or separately to complete any look. I especially love this striped mini skirt that is so cute and chic and will look great with anything from a pullover sweater, chambray shirt or a lace top. The skirt is actually petite sizing and I’m happy that I can find so many petite and XS options from Nordstrom. Nordstrom has such a wide selection of Fall items already and I’m so excited for all the Fall layers and colors! Now I just have to wait for it to get chillier here in Southern California ;).

I love how versatile and comfy this off the shoulder romper is! It’s such a simple look that can be dressed down or up. I added a cute belt and some of my favorite accessories to pull this simple look together. With the dark denim wash, this romper is a great transition from Summer to Fall.
