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!

SELF PORTRAIT LACE MIDI DRESS

Thursday, August 11th, 2016

Today I’m sharing one of my favorite dresses that I purchased on Nordstrom’s site. I’ve been in love with Self Portrait dresses for some time now and I love that they have been recently added to Nordstrom’s gorgeous selection of dresses. I needed a dress for my special birthday date night dinner last week and it was very helpful to find such a wide and nice selection of dresses available on Nordstrom.com. I received the dress just in time thanks to Nordstrom’s great shipping policy and received a ton of compliments when I wore this dress for our delicious dinner at Providence in LA. The beauty of this dress speaks for itself with its incredible lace detailing and lovely midi length. It is a bit of splurge but the quality and fit of the dress are flawless. This is definitely one of those dresses that make you feel confident and feminine and to me that’s worth it ;).

LAVENDER FIELDS IN PROVENCE

Monday, August 1st, 2016

One of my travel goals has always been to visit the amazing lavender fields in Provence! I have this obsession with lavender (as you can tell by my boutique name Morning Lavender), and the husband obliged and let us take a day trip to the south of France in search for this stunning scenery. We took the 3 hour train ride from Paris to Avignon, rented a car, passed through the charming town of Gordes and ended up in Sault 1 hour later where the lavender was endless and the sun was just about the set. It smelled heavenly everywhere and after you got over the fact that there were just as many bees as there were lavender, you realized how lucky you are to experience such a beautiful place. Renting a car in the countryside allowed us to see so much more of Provence and we fell in love with the charm and simplicity of the region. I’d love to go back sometime and see more of the gorgeous countryside!

After the sun had set, the hubs took out his drone and we were able to get a drone selfie :). It’s hard to travel together and trust a non-professional/stranger with our gear so sometimes we have to resort to drones for the perfect shots. We couldn’t pass up this opportunity to get a romantic photo together :).

DENIM BOW DRESS

Friday, June 24th, 2016

I’ve been wearing a lot of denim lately (see denim off the shoulder top and denim off the shoulder dress), but I couldn’t help but get another denim piece when it’s this cute! I love the front bow and how the cutout emphasizes the bow. I aslo loved the fact that Topshop offered this in petite sizes! With the boater hat, I’m feeling a bit French in this outfit and it makes me even more anxious for our trip to France next month! Stay tuned!

WHITE EMBROIDERED SHIRT DRESS

Friday, June 17th, 2016

Here’s another look from last week’s trip to Napa. I love the clean, simple look of this white embroidered shirt dress! And I also love how you can add a large floppy hat and elevate the entire look.

On another note, I get asked a lot about what camera I use to take my photos, especially when traveling. My husband and I are professional wedding photographers so we are equipped with the Canon 5d Mark iii and a variety of Sigma and Canon lenses. However, sometimes when we travel, we don’t want to deal with the bulkiness of lugging around our professional equipment so we invested in the Fuji XT1 which is a light, mirrorless camera and takes pretty amazing photos. We have recommended it to many friends for traveling and they love it! If you have more questions, feel free to send me a message on Snapchat (@lacenlocks). This set of photos below was actually take with the Fuji XT1:

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™‚
