PEACH & NAVY

April 12th, 2015

So lately I’ve been slightly obsessed with the color navy. I’ve been wanting a navy handbag and when I found this darling satchel with a gorgeous gold bow from Ted Baker, I just couldn’t resist! You know me and bows :). I also loved the scallop dress I wore in this blog post so much that I ordered the version with sleeves from Urban Outfitters. This one with sleeves is actually made of spandex and rayon and the sleeveless version is polyester so it’s of a thinner, more lightweight material. What do you guys think?! Do you like the version with or without sleeves?! I kind of love both lol.

LACE & ROMPERS

April 10th, 2015

It’s true – I love lace and I love rompers. So naturally I had to curate this sexy black romper for my boutique, Morning Lavender! When I go out at night these days (which is hardly ever), I try to be comfortable and chic at the same time! I love the sexy lace detailing on the sleeves and black and the cute ruffles on the bottom trim. I paired it with some “edgier” accessories like black booties and leopard clutch to give it more of a “night-out” look. I was super comfy all night, except for when I had to go to the restroom (you ladies who wear rompers know what I’m talking about).

Wishing everyone a great, safe weekend, especially those going to Coachella!

ASOS OFF THE SHOULDER FLORAL DRESS

April 6th, 2015

Today’s confession: I’m kind of a dress hoarder. I find a super pretty dress now and I just have to buy it! I mean how times how you adored a dress but had no occasion to wear it and so you didn’t buy it and then when you finally have a reason to wear a lovely dress, you have nothing! That has happened to me so many times that finally I just started to collect gorgeous dresses. For a long time, I spent most of my day in front of the computer editing (I still do) so I really had no special occasions to wear pretty dresses. But as I got older (sigh) and got invited to weddings, showers, etc… I found the need for an amazing dress collection. And honestly I just love pretty things so having a closet full of pretty things just kind of happened (don’t tell the hubs). So today’s post is one of those dresses. Seriously – organza, floral and off the shoulder in a great fit?! What more can you ask from in this gorgeous ASOS dress. I love their petite sizing because everything fits me so well – sometimes even a little too snug. This dress is so stylish and pretty – it would be the perfect dress to wear to that summer wedding! But hurry the dress is a part of ASOS’s exclusive salon collection so they only carry a limited number of quantities in each dress.

SPRING FLORAL DRESS

April 1st, 2015

Spring is here and I couldn’t be happier! As you know by now, I love to dress girlie and floral prints are just the perfect feminine, girlie statement. I found this gorgeous blue dress from Banana Republic and the best part besides its fantastic fit (their petite sizes fit me perfectly), are the pockets!!! For the complete Spring look, I added my new must have white accessories – this perfect size satchel/crossbody from Kate Spade and pointy toe white pumps from Topshop.

SCALLOP SHIFT DRESS

March 26th, 2015

My love for Spring continues with this scallop shift dress from Urban Outfitters. I love the peachy color of the dress, scallop trimming throughout and simple, shift silhouette. I added even more color to the look with my new colorful floral pumps from Louise et Cie. Spring is the perfect time to mix some color into your wardrobe so why not?! It’s amazing how a little color can brighten your mood and your day!

SPRING BLUE ROMPER

March 23rd, 2015

I hope everyone had a great weekend! I worked most of Saturday (shooting some beautiful portraits at the studio) and got to spend the rest of the weekend relaxing and enjoying this beautiful weather in SoCal! I know it’s not as warm everywhere else, but it is definitely time for romper weather here in Orange County (sorry don’t mean to rub it in =P)!

I love curating gorgeous pieces for my online boutique – Morning Lavender and I especially love finding pretty, light and colorful pieces for Spring. One of my favorite finds this season is this comfy, adorable blue romper. It has sleeves, pockets and comes in just this happy shade of sky blue. I finished the look with some of my favorite new accessories. I have been searching endlessly for mules in the perfect shade of cognac and found these beauties on Nordstrom. So far they are as comfy as they are cute! Another item I have been tirelessly looking for is a go-to brown handbag that will fit my petite frame and be versatile as a satchel and crossbody. Alas I found this crossbody from Madewell. It holds everything I need it to without overwhelming my frame and it looks just as good as a shoulder bag, crossbody or satchel. As you can tell, I am a pretty particular shopper. I don’t buy just anything – I like to search until I find exactly what I need and part of the fun for me is just finding it! So Spring I’m ready for you!

LACE MIDI DRESS

March 20th, 2015

Happy first day of Spring! I really love this time of the year and I can finally wear all of my favorite soft pretty colors (not that it really stops me in the Winter) and favorite dresses and rompers. I am obsessed with my new lace dress from ASOS! I was hesitant to buy it at first because it is a longer midi length than I am used to and being so petite, I was afraid the dress would overwhelm me. But when I got it, I fell in love with the pretty blush color, lace throughout and how beautifully the dress hung. I even got some compliments from the hubs which doesn’t happen that often lol. This dress is part of ASOS‘ salon collection – their luxury special occasion line. I think it’s a beautiful dress to wear for the spring or even to a special event like a wedding or prom. I also love how the dress looks like 2 pieces but is connected by a nude lining so it has that crop top-midi skirt look without showing any skin ;) – very elegant and feminine!
