STRIPE MIDI DRESS FOR SPRING

Friday, March 24th, 2017

Stripes are one of my favorite trends for Spring and this cute stripe midi dress I curated for Morning Lavender is so darling with its self-tying bow straps! The midi length on this dress gives it a classic, sophisticated look while the adjustable straps and waist tie are super flattering. I’m a fan of anything flattering and functional!

BLACK RUFFLE JUMPSUIT

Wednesday, March 22nd, 2017

A good fitting black jumpsuit is something I think every career gal should have in their work wardrobe. It is such a versatile and easy-to-wear piece that can we dressed simply (as seen here) or dressed up with more accessories, a fitted blazer and other fashionable items. I am especially fond of this jumpsuit from Ann Taylor because (1) it fits my petite frame nicely and (2) who doesn’t love the ruffled sleeve trend happening right now?! Unfortunately this jumpsuit sold out by the time I shared this look (speed up your shipping please Ann Taylor) but they do have some other cute options including this cute jumpsuit on sale plus an additional 40% off! I have also linked a few other great black jumpsuits from some of my other favorite retailers below.

COLORBLOCK MAXI DRESS

Monday, March 20th, 2017

Today is the first day of Spring and I’m celebrating with this head-to-toe look from Nordstrom! I’ve already prepared my Spring closet with tons of great pastel finds from Nordstrom including this fun and sweet colorblock maxi dress. It’s such a light and airy dress – perfect for Spring and throughout Summer. And how fun are the bows and tassels?! I paired it with one of my favorite recent purchases – these blush mules for a truly pretty-in-pink Spring look!

M.GEMI SPRING SHOES

Friday, March 17th, 2017

Spring is almost here and I don’t know if you can tell, but I’m pretty excited about it! It’s probably my favorite season in terms of weather and fashion. I love the lighter hues and fabrics and not wearing socks lol! I love wearing sandals and heels so these new Spring gems from M.GEMI have me even more excited for the season. I love that it’s a sexy slip on sandal with a unique lace up detailing. The nude/taupe color makes it a perfect Spring staple that will go with just about any look.

OFF THE SHOULDER LACE MIDI DRESS

Tuesday, March 14th, 2017

On today’s post, I’m sharing a very pretty off the shoulder lace dress in the prettiest shade of mauve. This dress is meant to be midi on most average heights (see dress on the model) but on my petite frame, it cuts right at my ankles when I wear heels. It’s kind of a weird spot for the dress to hit but I still think it’s a very flattering dress due to its high waisted seam. I love Spring and I’m looking forward to all of the gorgeous Spring dresses!

SPRING TRENDS: STRIPES & DENIM

Thursday, March 9th, 2017

Stripes and denim are definitely two of my favorite trends for this Spring and what better source to find such versatile pieces than Nordstrom?! I find especially great pieces from their curated Topshop collection which is usually on trend AND also flattering on my petite frame at the same time. Once I saw this bow back bodysuit (you know me and my love for bows :)), I knew I had to have it!  Baby got bows on the back!

SCALLOP BODYCON DRESS

Tuesday, February 21st, 2017

Valentine’s may be over but that doesn’t mean you have to stop searching for gorgeous date night outfits. I love this bodycon dress because although it’s very sexy in cut and shape, I love the feminine touches in the pretty hue and the scallop detailing. Due to its bodycon nature, the dress isn’t as forgiving as others so I made sure to eat a lighter meal before wearing this sexy number! I got a “wow” from the hubs when he saw me in this so I guess he approves ;).

SLEEVELESS & STRIPED

Friday, February 17th, 2017

I previously wore this pretty sleeveless trench as a dress with high boots for Fall but here I’m showing how to wear it differently as an outer layer and as a great Spring transition piece. I paired it with one of my closet must-haves – an easy-to-wear striped dress that pretty much goes with anything. I especially love packing this dress when I travel because there are so many ways to wear it. Going into Spring, I’m also wearing a lot of booties and peep-toed shoes as I’m storing some of the bigger boots for next Fall. Here I’m wearing this comfy pair from Naturalizer and if you use my code LNL20 at checkout, you can save 20% off!

YELLOW FLORAL MAXI DRESS

Wednesday, February 15th, 2017

February is halfway here and I can’t believe we are almost transitioning into Spring! To transition to Spring, I’ve been updating my wardrobe with more color and more floral. This yellow floral maxi dress I curated for Morning Lavender is a pretty and perfect transition to Spring! I am obsessed with the bright pop of yellow and the flattering wrap style of the dress. Plus the high-low hem of the dress makes it petite friendly for gals like me ;).

PRETTY BOW DRESS

Monday, February 6th, 2017

If you know me, you know I’m obsessed with anything with bows so naturally when I found this darling Bow Dress, I was in love! The dress has a flattering fit and flare shape and the low back adds a interesting and adorable detail. This dress is perfect for your Valentine’s date night but also for a fun event or party. It has the right amount of cuteness and fun!
