OFF-THE-SHOULDER CULOTTE JUMPSUIT

Monday, July 25th, 2016

I just love how comfy and chic off-the-shoulder culotte jumpsuit is! It’s perfect for traveling because it’s lightweight and you can dress it up or down. I wore my mules for a bit but switched out to cute tortoise sandals when we walked around a bit more. I love hanging out by the Seine River in Paris. The light was just magical towards sunset and we just sat by the river and enjoyed the beautiful weather and ambiance.

I hope you are enjoying all of our travel posts! More on the way!

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 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!

WHITE TULLE SKIRT

Thursday, July 14th, 2016

When packing for our Eurotrip, I knew I wanted to bring some of my favorite feminine pieces as we are visiting some of the most romantic, picturesque spots in Europe. After Tuscany, we traveled to Lake Garda in Northern Italy. The area is stunning with lake and mountain views and our resort Villa Feltrinelli was out of this world. I will be sharing more about the hotel in a later post but for now I wanted to share this pretty black and white look that stands out with the gorgeous colorful backdrop of the hotel. I love the fullness of white tulle skirt and I love that whenever I wear a tulle skirt, I just feel extra feminine. It’s just a great way to make a statement anywhere you go!

OFF THE SHOULDER FLORAL MAXI DRESS

Sunday, July 10th, 2016

Ciao from Italy again! The hubs and I are still on our summer Eurotrip and thanks to our wifi hotspot, I’ve been able to document our adventures on the blog, Instagram and Snapchat (lacenlocks)! One of the best decisions we made so far on this trip was renting a car for our stay in beautiful Tuscany! With the car, we are able to see most of the gorgeous landscape and stop for spontaneous photos when stumbling upon breathtaking spots like this cypress tree road. For our travel, I knew I had to pack this lovely off the shoulder floral maxi dress which screamed summer with it’s bright yellow color, pretty floral pattern and trending off the shoulder style. I love how the dress stands out among the trees and how easy it is to wear for day or night. Traveling fashion for me is all about comfortability and versatility while still looking cute! Also it helps to bring non-bulky items, especially when traveling for an extended period of time! Hope you are enjoying our posts – more to come!

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!

DENIM & LACE

Tuesday, May 24th, 2016

If I could wear lace everyday, I probably would! Lately, I have also been living in off the shoulder styles. I especially love to mix and match different textures like this fun off the shoulder denim top with this pretty lace pencil skirt. The whole look is flirty and breezy – perfect for a Spring to Summer transition.

MORNING LAVENDER TURNS 2!

Thursday, May 19th, 2016

Today is the 2 Year Anniversary of Morning Lavender and I can’t be more proud of what we have accomplished in these past 2 years! Sometimes I say “I can’t believe it’s already been 2 years” and other times “I’m thinking wow it’s only been 2 years” lol! We never would have imagined that our favorite feminine styles would be so popular and well received. I have never worked retail prior to this (ok I did one month at the UCLA clothing store one summer) so it’s definitely been a learning process for me, but it’s partly why I love it so much. I love being creative and challenged and I’m probably guilty of working too much and dragging my wonderful husband into my madness. Everyday has been different/exciting/fun/sometimes not-so-fun but it’s all in the challenges of being a small business and we love it. Our team has dedicated each day to improving our curating process and providing better customer service and delivery. In the last 2 years, we have moved from my tiny home garage to a warehouse/office space, opened up a gorgeous showroom, expanded our pop-up shops outside of Orange County, been featured in various National publications, shot more lookbooks than my husband could bear :), and sold over thousands of pretty tulle and flowy maxi skirts. Of course, none of this would have been possible without the faith and support of our wonderful customers, my husband, team, family and friends. I am truly grateful to do what I love and have people love what we do. We can’t wait to celebrate many more anniversaries with you all!

We recently took some new photos our office/showroom space. Here’s a sneak peek:

STRIPES & WIDE LEG

Wednesday, April 27th, 2016

Being petite, I’m always looking for ways to look taller and these wide leg pants perfectly elongate my frame. The size 00P from Banana Republic is pretty true to size and I wore them with my tallest wedges so I didn’t have to get the length altered at all. Yes I’ve always been obsessed with off the shoulder tops and this crop top, stripe version from my boutique, Morning Lavender pairs so well with the pants and keeps the illusion that my legs are longer than they really are =P.

MORNING AMELIA BLUE MAXI SKIRT GIVEAWAY!

Thursday, March 17th, 2016

Yes I have this gorgeous skirt from Morning Lavender in every color – the pink maxi skirt, the yellow maxi skirt, the gold maxi skirt and now this beautiful blue maxi skirt! I just love this bright blue color for Spring and who doesn’t love the flowiness of these skirts?! I had to get the waist taken in a little to raise the skirt higher on the waist – which meant I didn’t have to raise the hem and it made the bottom half of me look quite long. I find this blue color is really easy to wear and works well in many occasions. In honor of our Morning Lavender San Francisco Pop-Up Shop happening this weekend (see flyer below for more details), we are giving away one Amelia Blue Maxi Skirt to one random winner through an Instagram Giveaway! Check my @laceandlocks Instagram for more details!
