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 It’s been so long that my husband recently made fun of my outdated workout clothes – I’m almost embarrassed to say how long it’s been since I’ve bought new workout clothes!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.

FLOWY MAXI DRESS

September 19th, 2016

This is just one of those dresses that make you feel amaaazing. I curated this gorgeous maxi dress especially for Morning Lavender and I fell in love with it so much (as did our customers), that we now carry it in 4 amazing Fall colors! This beautiful shade of purple has been one of our best sellers and after you wear it, you’ll know why! The layers upon layers of flowy fabric make this dress such a statement in such a simple silhouette. And can we talk about the low, crisscross back?! The dress runs slightly large and long for my petite frame so I had it altered but it was so worth it. Now if only I can just stand there and twirl all the time! 😉

Fall is officially here and I’m loving all of the deeper shades for this season, especially this combination of navy and camel! I found these fabulous Fall pieces from Nordstrom, which has all the Fall needs you can find in one place! I can’t get enough of Fall fashion from all of the layers, textures and colors – and I love that you can find all of this from Nordstrom.com.

FALL OFFICE WEAR

September 16th, 2016

I’ve received many requests on showcasing some more work related outfits on the blog so today I’m sharing this stylish look that’s suitable for the office and versatile for other occasions as well. I use to work as a CPA in a Corporate setting so business casual was my wardrobe most of the week. Now that I’m my own #girlboss/owner of a fabulous boutique, I have the freedom to wear just about anything and retired my business casual wardrobe. I’m often at the office/warehouse so comfy shoes is pretty much my staple these days. Back then, I shopped at Banana Republic quite a bit and after visiting their site recently, I found that they still carry a lot of chic pieces perfect for work. I found the cutest bow button down shirt and darling red scallop skirt from Banana Republic and combined it with an old tweed blazer I had.  Both of these pieces can easily be re-worn with more casual looks like jeans with the shirt or a great Fall sweater with the skirt.  Although my office wear has changed, it’s fun to revisit business casual looks! I hope you enjoyed today’s post as much as I did!
