LACE & FAUX FUR

Friday, October 30th, 2015

With October almost over (it’s crazy how time flies), I can’t help but think about the holidays right around the corner. I will be styling more dressy looks on the blog to offer some holiday outfit ideas. You may remember the stunning pink version of this lace midi dress I posted back in Spring. I originally bought the non-Petite size so it was longer than this navy one you see here. Sadly the petite navy one has sold out again but you can opt for the longer length in navy or pink. I kind of love both lengths and colors so yes I have it both versions :). This look takes a pretty, but simple lace dress and dresses it up with a great faux fur jacket, glittery heels and a crystal statement necklace. Don’t you love how accessories can just change an outfit?! Stay tuned for more holiday related posts!

P.S. The hubs and I are currently in Mexico to photograph a wedding so staring at this faux fur is making me feel even hotter.

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!

BLACK LACE CONTRAST MIDI DRESS

Wednesday, October 7th, 2015

Here’s one of my favorite dresses of the moment and a look I wore at NYFW. I really, really love this dress from Self Portrait but with all of our expenses, it was hard to spend so much on a dress at this time. So I was beyond excited when I found this more affordable version for my shop, Morning Lavender. I had a slight wardrobe malfunction – as I was getting into the cab on our way to an event, my strap snapped and broke. Luckily this dress can be worn as a strapless or with straps so I just took off the other strap and wore it as a strapless look. Either way, I am in love with the lace and nude contrast and excited to find more ways to style this pretty dress! Just an FYI – I had to get the waist part taken in my by tailor to have it fit better. The small is a true small and I am usually an XS.

LACE MIDI DRESS

Friday, August 21st, 2015

I found this body hugging lace midi dress from For Love & Lemons and I am in love! I love all of the lace detailing, especially the sleeves and back. It comes with a nude slip to give it a great sheer look but covers up the areas you need ;). P.S. I didn’t realize how tan I was until I wore this all white look!

LACE & DENIM

Wednesday, August 19th, 2015

This lace midi skirt is definitely one of my favorite finds as a buyer for Morning Lavender. I just love how feminine the skirt is and plus it has pleats and pockets! It’s literally perfection in lace. I paired this girlie skirt with another classic staple – the denim shirt. A denim shirt is a versatile piece – great for layering and adding a different, casual vibe to any look. It also makes for a great summer to fall transition look!

MORNING LAVENDER LACE ROMPER

Tuesday, July 21st, 2015

Today I’m sharing another recent favorite romper of mine – this one from my boutique Morning LavenderMorning Lavender Lace Romper. Rompers are a pain for us girls to use the bathroom but I swear they are so comfy and cute – it makes up for it! A sad story (kind of) about my shoes – recently on our flight from Boston->NYC, we noticed upon landing in NYC that someone had broken the lock on our checked in suitcase. It was not TSA because they would not have to break the lock and because they usually leave a note if they had searched our bag. Our bag looked like it had been rummaged through but at first inspection, it looked as if nothing had been stolen. A couple of days later while in NYC, I was looking for my favorite mules (pictured below) and noticed they were nowhere to be found! Someone had stolen my mules that were sold out on Nordstrom and Dillards! And they were size 5 – who steals size 5 shoes?! I’m fortunate they weren’t my favorite pair of bow shoes, but still just the thought of someone violating your stuff sucks. I went on a frantic search online and actually found them on sale at Nordstrom Rack! So I bought 2 new pairs (size 6) but they are just a teeny bit too big. So that’s my shoe story and moral of the story? Don’t steal people!

OFF THE SHOULDER DRESS

Monday, July 13th, 2015

I’m back in Los Angeles and loving the summer weather here – not too hot or humid ;). It’s the perfect time of the year to wear all those pretty summer dresses and one of my favorite styles this season is the off the shoulder dress. I found this one adorable dress from Stylestalker that fit me perfectly in size XS. I love the darling details as well as the fit and flare shape of the dress! I wore it with my favorite new heels from Kay Unger and yes, I am obsessed with bows on my shoes =).

DELICATE LACE ROMPER

Thursday, June 18th, 2015

By now, you know my fondness for lace and rompers. Get them together and add pockets and I’m in love! Summer is the perfect time of the year to wear rompers and I especially love wearing ones that you can easily transition to night. I curated this particular one for Morning Lavender because I just love the delicate detail throughout, contrasting nude lining underneath and open key hole back. There are so many details of this romper – it’s hard to believe how inexpensive it is!

NAVY ROMPER

Wednesday, May 6th, 2015

I apologize for the lack of blog posts lately! We just got back from an amazing trip to Japan (photos coming soon) and I have been extremely busy catching up with all my work the past week! So many exciting things are happening and it’s hard to believe it is May already! These days, I like to wear a comfy romper or maxi dress when I am busy working. Rompers and maxis are the most comfortable for me – maybe because they are really adult onesies ;). This one here is one of my favorites for Spring and from my boutique, Morning Lavender. I paired it with this gorgeous lace kimono, also from Morning Lavender to dress up the look a bit. I love the detail on this kimono so much and wish I could wear it all the time!

LACE & ROMPERS

Friday, April 10th, 2015

It’s true – I love lace and I love rompers. So naturally I had to curate this sexy black romper for my boutique, Morning Lavender! When I go out at night these days (which is hardly ever), I try to be comfortable and chic at the same time! I love the sexy lace detailing on the sleeves and black and the cute ruffles on the bottom trim. I paired it with some “edgier” accessories like black booties and leopard clutch to give it more of a “night-out” look. I was super comfy all night, except for when I had to go to the restroom (you ladies who wear rompers know what I’m talking about).

Wishing everyone a great, safe weekend, especially those going to Coachella!
