NYE INSPIRATION – SEQUIN TULLE DRESS

Monday, December 29th, 2014

Here’s another inspiration look I put together for New Year’s Eve. As much as I love being glamorous, sometimes I want to just look cute and comfortable at the same time! This outfit combines some girlie glamour with the sequins and tulle with some added edge of the leather jacket and comforts of tights and wedged booties. It’s the perfect NYE look if you want to keep a bit warmer, be a bit more comfortable and last all night dancing and ringing in 2015 :).

NYE INSPIRATION LOOK – SEQUIN MAXI SKIRT

Wednesday, December 24th, 2014

I know it’s only Christmas Eve but I’m already thinking ahead for New Year’s Eve! I wanted to share this NYE glam inspired look with you all. I’ve been searching for a sequin maxi skirt for the longest time and when I found this one, I knew I had to curate it for Morning Lavender! It has the prettiest shade of gold and adds instant glamour and elegance to any NYE look.

I also wanted to think my hubs for shooting my this whole year – I can’t believe it’s been a year since I launched this blog! Thanks to all of my readers for your love and support! Also special thanks to Katie B for this gorgeous holiday, glittery hair and makeup!

HOLIDAY RED MAXI

Friday, December 19th, 2014

It’s crazy how quickly the holidays have come! I think my mind is still somewhere enjoying a coconut in Thailand =P. But with Christmas just a few days away, I teamed up with the amazingly talented Katie B and Chicwish to bring forth this festive, holiday look. I don’t always wear red, but I love wearing it for the holidays! I love this classic combination of a full skirt with a simple white top. I added some sparkly accessories and shoes for the final glamorous touches for the season.

Hope everyone is staying safe and warm and getting in the holiday spirit too!

GIFTS FOR HIM UNDER $100

Tuesday, December 16th, 2014

I don’t know about you ladies, but I find it seriously hard to shop for my guy! Guys seem to want very little or the things they do want are a tad unrealistic – boat, bike, car, etc… So when it comes to gifts, I try to get them things they can’t or won’t buy for themselves. My husband isn’t much of clothes shopper (which is a good balance for us) so I usually spoil him with things I think he would look good in. Here are some of my picks – all from retailers that offer last minute shipping!

SWEATER DRESS

Monday, December 15th, 2014

Hey there! I apologize for the lack of blog posts lately! We just returned from a 3 week workcation in Southeast Asia! I am hoping to blog more about it in the upcoming weeks but for now I wanted to share with you one of the looks from my feature with Old Navy on The Everygirl!

BOOTS WITH THE FUR

Sunday, November 16th, 2014

It’s finally getting cooler in SoCal which means I get to bust out some off my fall favorites like faux fur and boots! I love mixing neutrals and patterns like this fun combo I put together recently. I am super petite and never thought I could pull off over-the-knee boots but surprisingly they make my legs look longer! And I am slightly obsessed with faux fur vests – I know they aren’t for everyone, but you got to at least have one in your closet!

And props to the hubs who makes me look this good in a parking garage!
