FLORAL MAXI SHORTS JUMPSUIT

Friday, July 15th, 2016

I’m blogging again from Italy and again from the beautiful Grand Hotel A Villa Feltrinelli. The scene was so breathtaking and I knew I had to wear this fabulous floral maxi shorts jumpsuit from my boutique Morning Lavender for dinner one evening. I just love how flowy and comfortable this jumpsuit is and it was perfect on the dock, overlooking Lake Garda. Besides being the perfect outfit seaside, I also think it makes a great wedding guest outfit that really stands out! This dress was a part of our #CBLxML collection and sold out the first time. We just restocked it so make sure to get your hands on one this time!

Thanks to my hubs for the amazing photography as usual!

MORNING LAVENDER MAXI JUMPSUIT

Wednesday, June 22nd, 2016

During the past several months, the Morning Lavender team and I have been working with the amazingly stylish and hilarious Kathleen of Carrie Bradshaw Lied. We wanted to start a series of curated collections for Morning Lavender featuring some of our favorite fashionistas that would represent our brand well. Kathleen was one of our favorite bloggers from the beginning and her engaging personality made it even more enjoyable collaboration! We had a blast during our Palm Springs Lookbook shoot! This outfit here is one of my favorites from our #CBLxML collaboration. I love that it looks like a maxi dress but it’s really a jumpsuit! The shorts make it super comfortable to wear and the flowiness of the maxi makes you feel so fabulous. As the owner of the boutique, I wish that every item we carry fits me well, but sadly (or as my husband says gladly) I am very petite and not all styles are made for petite gals like myself. This particular maxi jumpsuit has an elastic waist so I feel like it stretches for your body and the cut makes it flattering on just about everyone. I rounded up some of my other petite-friendly styles from our #CBLxML collaboration below. I’m working on bringing more of them to Morning Lavender! Hurry though – some of the items are already selling out!

I also just got these new platform shoes and they are surprisingly super comfy! I love that they give me the added height I need but also looks very stylish!

PINK MAXI BALLGOWN SKIRT

Wednesday, January 20th, 2016

Greetings from Korea! It’s freezing here but it been such a wonderful experience so far! Follow me on Instagram and Snapchat (lacenlocks) if you want to see all the fun (and food) we are up too!

We shot this Valentine’s Day inspired look right before we left! If you have been following my blog, you know I love putting together date night looks (see black tulle maxi skirt and pink tulle midi skirt. I found this pink ball gown skirt and I knew it would be a perfect statement look for one of my favorite holidays! I added a crisp, white polka dot shirt to balance out the bright pink skirt. I didn’t want this look to look cheesy with such a bright color – I wanted the whole look to look effortless and classic, which I think I achieved with a classic top and minimal accessories. If you are missing the hubs in this post, he was behind the camera. But don’t worry, I have some more date night looks coming up where he will make an appearance (hopefully I can convince him again).

P.S. It was kind of windy that day so please excuse my crazy hair!

SPACE 46 BLACK TULLE MAXI

Friday, February 13th, 2015

I wanna dedicate this blog post to my amazing husband! Not only does he allow me to play dress up and take fun photos like this (trust me, we are waaaay better behind the camera), but he has been the constant support behind all of my crazy, ongoing ideas. His unselfish, calm and caring demeanor allows me to be who I am and dream bigger than ever. He has been so incredibly supportive since I started this blog and my boutique. He has learned way more about fashion than he ever wanted to and is probably tired of me asking him to shoot me in “squares”. I can’t imagine life without this incredible man and I thankful to be on this journey of life and love with him!

Ok now lets talk about this stunning black tulle maxi skirt from Space 46 Boutique! You may remember last year’s Valentine’s Day post featuring a pink midi skirt from Space 46 Boutique – well I wanted to share a dressier and more classic look that year with this maxi version that I has been sitting in my closet and screaming for me to wear. This skirt is seriously magical and makes you feel so elegant and pretty instantly when you put it on. It’s the perfect skirt to wear for your very special evening out and for your truly Carrie Bradshaw-in-Paris moment.

COLORFUL MAXI

Monday, March 3rd, 2014

I have a certain fondness for maxi dresses and this particular one from BB Dakota just makes me smile. It is so colorful and fun that I can’t help but feel happy and bright whenever I wear it. Oh and I know I’ve been rocking the round sunglasses a lot lately so I thought I’d try something new with these mirrored Ray-Ban Aviators. I love the new, fun twist on these classic sunnies. Gotta mix it up a bit, ya know?

ACE HOTEL

Monday, February 17th, 2014

Follow on Bloglovin

For Valentine’s Day (actually we celebrated a day early), the hubby surprised me with a mini getaway to downtown Los Angeles (about 45 min from where we live). I have been wanting to check out the new Ace Hotel in downtown Los Angeles and the hubby planned a romantic and fun day exploring the city. I love the hip and modern vibe of each Ace Hotel. And I especially loved all of the gold hardware and checkered floors of this one. While at the hotel, the hubs shot me in this lovely floral skirt and bow top from Charlotte Russe. I loved the window light in our room so we decided to just do the shoot there. I loved how these images turned out with the side light. After my turn was over, I made sure to get some photographs of the hubby as well =). I’d say I’m a pretty lucky gal!

P.S. Can you guess which images were shot with my iphone? (hint they are square)

GIVE IT A TWIRL

Monday, January 13th, 2014

Maybe it’s the photographer in me, but I love dresses that have a lot of movement. And it’s definitely the shorty in me that prefers maxi dresses because they can make you look taller =). I love this flowy maxi dress from ASOS with it’s beautiful lace details. And these photos may look effortless (hopefully) but it took a lot of patience (from the hubs) and shots to get the perfect flair from the dress. I have A LOT of respect for my couples and all the models/fashion bloggers out there now. DO try this at home with your favorite flowy dress =).

P.S. I can’t thank the hubs enough for helping me with the new blog! His talent is amazing and his helpfulness is even greater. On every shoot so far, he’s been zipping me up, fixing my hair and adjusting my wardrobe. I think he’s learning more than he wants to about women’s fashion lol.
