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 :).

COLORBLOCK MIDI SKIRT

Thursday, July 28th, 2016

Paris is one of our favorite cities in the world so the hubs and I always find ourselves traveling back there. We even got married in France! We love taking in the sights, culture, food and just the beautiful architecture. I love the ornate detailing of so many of the buildings and the romantic vibe of the entire city. I combined my love for feminine clothing with the city’s romantic setting and came up with this colorful, feminine look. I wear this lace top often because it goes so great with skirts. One of my favorite ways to wear it is with a full maxi skirt as seen in this blog post. The lace top worked well with my new colorblock midi skirt and I loved all of the pretty colors in one skirt.

LEMON MIDI SKIRT

Friday, July 22nd, 2016

Bonjour from Paris! I fell in love with this lemon midi skirt for our Morning Lavender boutique and I knew I had to pack it for our trip to Paris! I just LOVE the lemon print and the flare shape of this skirt. Plus it comes in XS so it fits us petite gals quite well :). One of our favorite things to do in Paris is just to walk around and take in all of the beautiful sights (and we may or may not have been playing PokemonGo as well). I wore this skirt walking around the beautiful Tuileries Garden in Paris and got so many compliments. It was the perfect feminine skirt for such a romantic city!

FLORAL MIDI DRESS

Friday, June 3rd, 2016

Happy Friday! I’m so ready for the weekend in this colorful floral midi dress. I love the flow and the lovely midi length of this Banana Republic dress. I paired it with my favorite new denim crop jacket to transition it an evening look.

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.

STRIPED MIDI SKIRT

Wednesday, March 30th, 2016

I’m a sucker for striped skirts (see my previous navy striped skirt post) and what feminine gal doesn’t love a classic black and white combo?! I love how this skirt flares like a bell and it’s petite friendly sizing from ASOS prevents the horizontal stripes from overwhelming me. I went classic with this look with a cute bow top, my favorite Chanel and my new, pretty bow pumps.

FLORAL MIDI SKIRT

Monday, January 11th, 2016

Happy New Year folks! I know it’s already January 11th but it was nice to take some time off work and social media. I caught the flu around Christmas which sucked but I was lucky to spend some time with family and friends the rest of the holidays. It’s definitely my favorite time of the year and our Christmas tree is actually still up lol.

Well I’m excited to bring new posts and looks to you in 2016! I have so many personal and professional goals and I hope this year goes by a lot slower than the last! One of my professional goals is to consistently have content on the blog so if there’s anything you would like me to style or share, let me know in the comments section below! I am a very girlie girl and obsessed with feminine fashion so you will often find me in a combination of fitted tops and midi skirts (see previous posts – tulle polka dot midi skirt and denim midi skirt). I found this floral midi skirt from Chicwish and I thought the woolen fabric was perfect for this time of the year. I paired it with an old off the shoulder sweater – I’ve started the usual new year purging of my closet so I’m finding some old favorites that I forgot about! I love combining old pieces in my closet with with new items and it saves some money in the bank too :).

DENIM MIDI SKIRT

Friday, October 2nd, 2015

Happy Friday!!! I’m loving denim for the Fall and this denim midi skirt is one of my favorites in rotation. I love the button up detailing and how wonderfully it pairs with simple tops like this stripe one. This look shows that dressing for Fridays can be casual and chic.

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!
