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™‚

Today I’m wearing this cute, scallop version of the little black dress/a> (LBD). With its halter style and scallop detailing, I just love the design and fit of this affordable dress!

PALM PRINT SLIPDRESS

Friday, May 27th, 2016

This long weekend makes me want to hang out by the pool or lounge at some fabulous resort. I’m loving palm print especially for those occasions or just about anything for this Spring/Summer seasons. I found this perfect combination of pink and palm in this adorable palm print dress from Topshop at Nordstrom’s. Its gorgeous print makes it a standout and its light weight material makes it easy for traveling. I paired it with some of my favorite summer accessories from Nordstrom, which as usual has the best selection and variety of jewelry. I can probably spend all day perusing Nordstrom’s site (especially with their current half yearly sale) and find myself completing entire looks with everything from their site – from cute sunnies to designer handbags, gorgeous shoes and of course dainty jewels. Their selection of summer jewelry like these girlie gold pieces and gorgeous gemstones added the finishing touches to this overall fun, summery look.

FIT AND FLARE FLORAL DRESS

Wednesday, May 18th, 2016

I’m a firm believer that a girl can never have too many flowers so I couldn’t help but combine all of my favorite florals in one ;). I love that it’s May and peony season is here! I also love this gorgeous fit and flare dress from ASOS that matches the season so perfectly. With it’s full skirt, very flattering neckline/bust support and pockets, this colorful floral dress has it all and the girlie girl in me just couldn’t resist it.

SEASIDE JEWELS

Monday, May 16th, 2016

With Summer coming soon, I’m already dreaming of seaside escapes and wearing some of my favorite Summer looks. I love wearing anything white for the Summer and I especially love adding some pretty accessories to add a little pop of color and complete the entire look. If you have been reading my blog for a while now, you know that Nordstrom is one of my go-to resources to shop for just about anything (but mostly shoes). Besides my usual shoe purchases, I also love Nordstrom for their vast selection of lovely jewelry options. Nordstrom always seem to have what I need – whether it’s a layered gold pendant necklace, crystal statement earrings (I recently discoverd Marchesa’s beautiful evening jewelry collection) or a gorgeous tassel necklace like this beauty from Kendra Scott seen here. There were so many pretty colors to choose from on Nordstrom’s site but I ended up with one of my favorite colors and one of the pantone colors of the year – rose quartz. I completed the entire look with my new cute and did I mention comfy wedges from Sole Society and this darling straw tote from Mar y Sol. I haven’t been into the whole pom pom trend, but this tote is just so cute – I couldn’t pass it up and it’s just so perfect for all those Summer beach outings!

What more can you ask for in this year’s Spring dress?!
