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 ;).

FLORAL & BOOTIES FOR FALL

Friday, August 26th, 2016

Today I’m sharing another fun Fall outfit with Nordstrom. I’m slowly switching my wardrobe to Fall tones and finding so many new and versatile pieces from Nordstrom. I found this gorgeous printed floral shift dress in pretty Fall colors and paired it with one of my favorites from last year – this great fitting faux leather jacket. This faux leather jacket is one of my closet staples as it goes perfectly with everything from dressed to skirts and jeans.

One of my favorite items for Fall are the cute booties! I find myself wearing booties almost everyday during the Fall. The booties seen here were purchased during the NSale but I found so many great new options on Nordstrom.com. Scroll through to see all of the options under $150:

FLORAL MAXI DRESS AT LA FOCE

Thursday, August 4th, 2016

I am turning 1 year older today and as I do every year, I take today to look back on all that has happened before today. This past year has been truly incredible – from enjoying all of the wonderful moments with my amazing husband, traveling to so many incredible places (like the beautiful La Foce in Tuscany), finding a more fulfilling work/life balance and reaching so many goals for my dream of an online shop. I feel like we’ve done so much in such a short time, but it also feels like so much time has passed and there is still yet so much to do. I consider myself an endless dreamer – always envisioning that there’s more ahead. Maybe I’m overambitious, an overachiever as you might say. I like the road more difficult to travel and at this old age (really don’t ask how old), I’m surprised I’m not tired. I feel blessed everyday that I have so many opportunities and blessings in my life. I am very excited for what this year will bring and hope for strength to live everyday to the fullest and without regret. Thanks to everyone who continue to support my blog and believe in me!

I wanted to share these images today because I remember feeling so incredibly lucky the day we arrived at La Foce in Tuscany. We were in awe of what a beautiful place it was and how blessed our jobs of destination wedding photographers had taken us here. Even though my hubs is one heck of a photographer, I feel like these photos don’t even do this place justice. From the scenery to the landscaping to the estate itself, everything was stunning and straight out of a movie. The wedding, couple and guests were amazing and we can’t wait to share those images on our wedding photography site. We had some downtime after the wedding and I got to twirl around the grounds in one of my favorite new maxi dresses from Morning Lavender. I loved this dress so much that I kept both navu and white versions of the dress AND paid my amazing tailor to alter them to fit me perfectly. I raised the shoulders a bit to bring the overall length to my petite height and added a snap button on the front to keep cleavage to a minimum. I am just obsessed with the flowiness of the dress plus the billowy sleeves, gold buttons and gorgeous floral print.

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.

BIRD & FLORAL PRINT MIDI DRESS

Wednesday, May 11th, 2016

Spring and Summer are the perfect seasons to play with prints and I am in love with the bird & floral print of this floral midi dress. I just love the blend of pale pink and green colors. Once again, ASOS’s petite section fits me perfectly with no alterations needed.

EVERLY SPRING FLORAL DRESS

Friday, April 29th, 2016

Today I’m all about comfy, casual and cute in this Spring floral dress from Everly Clothing. As a buyer for Morning Lavender, we actually carry quite a few pieces from Everly Clothing as we love their beautiful fabrics and prints. I particularly love this new off the shoulder floral romper we curated for the shop! I accessorized this pretty peachy dress with some easy-to-wear, everyday essentials like my favorite reversible tote and a belt to create more shape to my frame.

On other note, I have a fun weekend planned celebrating two good friends’ wedding! Can’t wait to relax and just have some fun!

ASOS COLORFUL OFF THE SHOULDER DRESS

Monday, March 28th, 2016

Last Spring (with much longer hair), I fell in love with this off the shoulder floral dress from ASOS. Well this year, they came out with a more colorful version in bright Spring colors and I just had to get it as I love the fit and style so much! I think this beautiful dress is a serious contender for my search for a wedding guest dress! It does run tight so I might not be able to eat as much ;).

On another note, looking back at last year’s post, I’m still debating whether to grow my hair out or keep it short! I also had more of side part with the longer hair. So what do y’all think, should I keep my hair short or grow it out?!

ASOS is having a SHOP MORE, SAVE MORE SALE where the more you spend, the more you save! Be sure to take advantage of this sale which ends on 3/29/2016 if you plan to buy this dress!

OFF THE SHOULDER FLORAL DRESS

Wednesday, March 23rd, 2016

Yes I’ve been loving a lot of off the shoulder looks lately and this off the shoulder floral dress is just perfect for Spring! If you love off the shoulder dresses, you will love this light denim off the shoulder dress – same one as the darker denim off the shoulder dress one I previously posted about.

FLORAL STRAPLESS DRESS

Wednesday, March 16th, 2016

Can you tell by now that Spring is one of my favorite times of the year?! :). I love transitioning to the brighter colors and of course the floral prints! I fell in love with this sweetheart floral dress thanks to the big and pink floral pattern and of course the pockets. It’s a beautiful dress to wear to an outdoor wedding and has just the right amount of color, shape and flare. I’m attending a few weddings this year so it’s been fun to be on the hunt for the right wedding guest dresses. See my previous post on the perfect pleated floral maxi dress!  Plus you can save 20% off these styles until 3/18/2016 4am EST using code CLOVER4!

It’s tough when you spend all that money on a dress for a wedding and you can’t wear it again :(. So it’s nice to have a versatile dress like this where you can easily add a chambray shirt like I did here and wear it like a pretty, floral midi skirt!
