THE PERFECT FRINGE SHAWL

December 7th, 2016

Say hello to the perfect fringe shawl! I’ve been wearing this cozy cardigan everywhere – over a slim black dress like this or paired with my favorite high-waisted jeans and booties. It has the perfect amount of drape, comes in a gorgeous taupe color and looks way more elegant than the price. Note: it’s sold out in size Small (which I’m wearing) BUT I’ve tried on both the size Medium & Large and the main difference in sizes is the length of the back. I almost went with the Large size because I wanted a longer length in the back! Hurry and get yours because they have already sold out in our San Francisco boutique!

I also wanted to take some time today and thank everyone for the support of my boutique business! We recently opened our first Morning Lavender brick-and-mortar boutique in San Francisco so I’ve been commuting back and forth from Orange County on a weekly basis as we staff the store and get things settled! It has been a DREAM and we are overwhelmed with all of the love and support. I haven’t had much time for myself lately, especially to shop so the blog has been a bit slower but I promise to get back to styling some great looks for you all!

LAYERING WITH UNIQLO HEATTECH

November 21st, 2016

I’ve been living in layers now that I am traveling quite often to chillier weather in San Francisco, CA. My favorite layering options that keep me comfy and warm are HEATTECH basics from Uniqlo. These simple pieces are lightweight but also features heat retaining technology to keep you warm all day long. Today I’m actually showcasing how HEATTECH layers keep you warm underneath your sweaters and jackets, but they are also the perfect basic layers for a stylish look. I combined two of my favorite Uniqlo items with this gorgeous faux fur vest and chic accessories to stay on trend and warm to the core!

REEBOK WOMEN

November 9th, 2016

As you all know by now, I’ve been spending a lot of time lately in the amazing city of San Francisco as we get our Morning Lavender SF Boutique off the ground! Being a #girlboss has consumed my life but I’m trying to develop some better daily habits in the midst of the work and commuting between Orange County and San Francisco. One of my goals has been to get back into some sort of workout routine – it has honestly been 3 years (our wedding) since I’ve really worked out. It’s been so long that my husband recently made fun of my outdated workout clothes – I’m almost embarrassed to say how long it’s been since I’ve bought new workout clothes! So when I got these stylish goodies from Reebok in the mail, I knew it was a sign to get active again! Who knew workout clothes could be so stylish and comfortable at the same time – I’m obsessed with this strappy workout top and these comfy shoes that I’ve been wearing everywhere in the city! While at the shop, I see so many active women come into our store before and after their workouts on Union St and it is so inspiring to see how they accommodate fitness into their busy lives. After a long hiatus, I’m going to get ahead of those New Year resolutions and aspire to start now, especially before I indulge in all of the yummy holiday food!

CAMEL & BURGUNDY IN CHICAGO

October 27th, 2016

Greetings from Chicago!!! We took a much needed week off from work this week to visit and eat our way through the beautiful and fun city of Chicago! It’s a bit chillier here but we love experiencing the different seasons and seeing a change in weather and Fall colors. I brought my favorite new coat that I’ve been searching for and I finally found this great fitting camel coat from Topshop at Nordstrom! I’m in love with the gorgeous camel color and how it compliments so many of my closet staples like a simple jean look or my favorite Fall sweater dresses! I love finding so many versatile Fall staples from Nordstrom and having so many lovely layering options.
