NAPA TRIP: FIT AND FLARE STRIPE DRESS

Monday, June 13th, 2016

This past weekend, I traveled with my girlfriends to beautiful Napa Valley, CA to celebrate a bachelorette party for one of my closest friends. We chose Napa for the occasion for the vino of course, but also for the breathtaking scenery and delicious food! One of our favorite experiences on the trip was wine tasting at one of our favorite vineyards, Shafer. We were treated to a tour and tasting in a small, intimate group and loved hearing about the history of the vineyard and winemakers. Known for their Hillside Select Cabernet, each wine we tasted was full of flavor and I’m not much of a wine connoisseur myself, but I thoroughly enjoyed the wines and experience at Shafer. I highly recommend this tasting to anyone and no this is not a sponsored post!

When I travel, I love packing for the location! Since Napa is such a beautiful place full of light and greenery, I packed a lot of light, feminine dresses. I already had in mind the perfect dress to wear on this trip – this lovely fit and flare stripe dress from Chicwish. This is the perfect feminine dress for the Summer and I just love the blend of cotton and polyester, not to mention the adorable bow detailing. Some of our other favorites from this trip were: AdHoc for dinner, Bouchon Bakery for bread, and Bistro Jeanty for oysters happy hour and the most amazing puff pastry tomato soup. Can you tell we did a lot of eating and drinking?! šŸ™‚

TRAVEL DIARY: JAPAN 2016

Monday, April 25th, 2016

Last year we had the most amazing time visiting Japan but we were sad that we had just missed the cherry blossoms by one week! We decided to go again this year with some friends in search for the beautiful sakura trees and let me tell you how magical they were!!! As amazing as my husband photographer is, our photos don’t even compare to the beautiful experience when you are there among the gorgeous, blossoming trees. I highly recommend a visit to Japan to experience this at least once in your life and to eat the most delicious ramen too ;).

I wanted to share some photos from our trip, some of which you might have caught on my Instagram. My wonderful #instagramhusband obliged as I made him row the boat and take my photos at the same time. Love you baby!

COLD WEATHER LAYERS

Wednesday, February 24th, 2016

Here is my second look from a fun getaway in Mammoth! I must be honest – I’m not much of a snowboarder or skier (I’m very scared of heights) but I LOVE the snow so it was fun to ride the gondola up to the top of the mountain and enjoy the beautiful weather! It was a bit windy up top so I made sure to wear lots of layers to keep warm.

FAVORITE PINK MAXI SKIRT (ON SALE!)

Thursday, October 15th, 2015

You may remember this gorgeous yellow maxi skirt I posted earlier this year. Well this beautiful skirt now comes in lovely shade of light pink and I couldn’t resist showcasing it’s flowiness on the Brooklyn Bridge in NYC (by the way it is super hard to wake up early and get a shot on the bridge empty and in heels!) This skirt has layers of full fabric that make it extra flowy and special. I just love how it moves when I walk! I also love that I did not have to hem or alter this skirt. I wore it high-waisted and with 4″ heels and it fit perfectly. And better yet, Morning Lavender is having a private SALE just for Friends & Family!

WIDE LEG PANTS

Sunday, September 13th, 2015

Greetings from NYC! The husband and I have been here the last few days for NYFW and it’s been a whirlwind of fashion, fun and food (follow me on snapchat lacenlocks if you want to see more). We really love the city so much, especially the easily accessible public transportation and option to walk to so many great shops and delicious restaurants. There seems to always be something fun and new going on in the city! This all black look I’ve got going on here is a great look for fall – with an all black tone and a chic, minimal silhouette. I have the hardest time finding pants for my petite size and I’m usually too lazy for alterations so I was amazed when I found these chic pants from ASOS that fit perfectly in waist and length. I paired it with one of favorite new lace tops from my boutique, Morning Lavender for a flattering, overall chic, city look!

WEDDING WEDNESDAYS: NHA KHANH TULLE DRESS

Wednesday, June 10th, 2015

Last week I was in Dallas for a Morning Lavender event and I also got a chance to spend some extra time with the in-laws (my husband is originally from Dallas) and also visit one of my favorite designers! Nha Khanh was my wedding dress designer and has turned into a good friend and incredible #girlboss inspiration. She is a wonderful business woman and designer, as well as wife and mother. I love supporting fellow women entrepreneurs and I have always been in love with her beautiful, feminine designs. I knew when I got married that she was the designer for me. Fortunately for many, her beautiful designs can be found on Rent the Runway, including this gorgeous navy tulle dress seen. It’s fun, flirty and feminine and perfect to wear to weddings. I’m a big advocate of this sight and have seen many girls at weddings use this option. You might not wear it again so why not pick a designer beauty from a great site like Rent the Runway? The site lets you choose a free 2nd size in case your first choice does not fit and my favorite part is seeing real life examples of the dress on real people with real measurements. It is especially useful for petite gals like me because dresses are often too long or overwhelming.

TRAVEL DIARY: JAPAN

Thursday, June 4th, 2015

Tokyo has always fascinated me and been on my “I-need-to-go-to” places. So when the hubs asked me randomly one day in early April if I wanted to go to D.C. to see cherry blossoms, I replied “lets just go to Japan!”. I found a great deal on Singapore Airlines and we booked our tickets 2 weeks before our travel. It was spontaneous but when you are busy as we are and find a window of available time, you take it. And let me just say I’m so glad we did! Japan was amazing! We fell in love with the culture and food. There were so many amazing sites to see and everyone we met (for the most part) were kind, respectful and helpful. We traveled everywhere conveniently by train (why can’t the States be more like this?!) and we were able to visit 5 cities including Tokyo and Kyoto. We unfortunately caught the tail end of the cherry blossoms so we weren’t able to experience it in full bloom. Nevertheless it was still a beautiful site to see and I was lucky enough to be traveling with my best friend/love-of-my-life/photographer.

MY CARRIE MOMENT

Wednesday, October 22nd, 2014

A few weeks ago I went to NYC for work and was lucky enough to experience some of the beautiful fall weather in the city. One of my favorite spots in NYC is Central Park. As crowded as it gets sometimes, it always feels so calming and peaceful. I love just sitting in the park and people watching or strolling along the tree lined walkways. One of my favorite memories with the husband is when we took a row boat down the lake :). When I went to Central Park this time, I knew I had to wear one of my favorite new tulle skirts and channel my inner Carrie Bradshaw. I know it’s a bit cliche to wear a tulle skirt in NYC but I just had to. And I had to wear my new bow heels of course!

FALL DATE

Wednesday, September 17th, 2014

The hubs and I recently took a fun trip to NYC for our 1 year anniversary (wow time flies) and for NYFW. Our trips usually consist of eating and more eating. Since it was our anniversary, we took some time to celebrate by having a date night and watching the hilarious Book of Mormon on Broadway. Here is our date night look where I took one of my favorite tulle skirts from Morning Lavender that I have been wearing all summer and transitioned it to a more fall look by pairing it with a darker navy sweater and dressing it up a bit with a gorgeous crystal necklace. Jason wore a gray and navy combo that complemented my look but wasn’t too matchy-matchy.

OUR WEDDING

Thursday, September 4th, 2014

So this blog post is a lil’ delayed – 1 year to be exact! Today marks our 1 year wedding anniversary! I am so blessed to be married to such a loving, dedicated, handsome and hard working man. We have a pretty interesting story on how we met, but to give you the short version – we are wedding photographers that met a wedding and fell in love. So when it was time to plan our wedding, we thought of the hundreds of weddings we have both shot and knew that we wanted something different and knew that we wanted it feel more like a vacation for our closest families and friends. So we gathered our loved ones and brought them all the way to France with us! All 80 of them! We are so blessed that so many of our families and friends journeyed so far to celebrate with us. It was quite the planning experience (yes there were a few bridezilla breakdowns) but in the end it was more than we could have possibly imagined.

Here are just a few of our favorite memories from our favorite day by our photographer Ethan Yang. I will try to do a more detailed post later on and what inspired all of the DIY details, fashion, location, etc… If you want to see more in depth of what went on, be sure to also watch our amazing wedding film by our videographer, Joe Simon at the end of the post.
