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 JEANS & STRIPES

Friday, July 1st, 2016

What better time to wear white jeans than the summer?! And yes my love for off the shoulder tops continues as I paired it with the jeans for a great 4th of July casual and cute look. And yes I LIVE in my mules. Unfortunately I bought them last year so they are now sold out. But I found these pair of mules that are very close in color and style!

DENIM BOW DRESS

Friday, June 24th, 2016

I’ve been wearing a lot of denim lately (see denim off the shoulder top and denim off the shoulder dress), but I couldn’t help but get another denim piece when it’s this cute! I love the front bow and how the cutout emphasizes the bow. I aslo loved the fact that Topshop offered this in petite sizes! With the boater hat, I’m feeling a bit French in this outfit and it makes me even more anxious for our trip to France next month! Stay tuned!

For Love & Lemons & Urban Outfitters Tropical Leaf Dress

Monday, August 3rd, 2015

Greetings from Puerto Los Cabos! The husband and I are traveling for a workcation – we just finished photographing a beautiful wedding here and now we are spending a couple of days for some R&R and celebrating my birthday :). It’s a blessing we get to travel for work and we get to do it together! When I travel, I love packing light but also bringing pieces that suit my travels and surroundings. Cabo is such a beautiful coastal town and I thought this tropical print dress from a For Love & Lemons & Urban Outfitters collaboration would be perfect! Follow me on Instagram and Snapchat (lacenlocks) to see more of our silly adventures!

TROPIC STYLE

Tuesday, June 24th, 2014

Oh summer how I love thee… Summer is the perfect time for me to wear some of my favorite things: rompers and hats. I love rompers because they can be comfortable and stylish at the same time (can we say adult onesies?!) and I love hats because they make you feel so darn cool. I am slightly obsessed with the print and fit of this strapless tropic romper from Topshop. I wore it with my favorite new wedges from Toms and I’m pretty much in the exact type of outfit you can find in me all summer. I also took these photos outside my new favorite local eatery spot – the Anaheim Packing House. You should definitely check it out if you live in Southern California!

PURPLE PLEATS

Friday, June 20th, 2014

Who doesn’t love a skirt with great movement?! This ASOS skirt in a bright purple is purrrfect for the summertime. I love wearing my skirts high waisted and pairing them with crop tops to add some much needed length to my look. I added my favorite summer floppy hat and I’m good to go!

This is probably the first weekend in a long time I am NOT working. I will be celebrating my best friend’s bachelorette this weekend so follow my INSTAGRAM for some snippets of all the fun and yes it will be a tame one! šŸ™‚

GINGHAM STYLE

Monday, June 16th, 2014

I am so excited for today’s blog post! I did a cross blog collaboration with the lovely and stylish Brenna of Chic Street Style! Brenna is an amazing blogger and stylist from the Midwest specializing in dynamic cheap-chic looks. This was such a fun project to do with her! We each put our own style on this gorgeous white gingham midi skirt from Morning Lavender. As you can see, Brenna went for a chic Southern white look with the perfect floppy hat to tie it all together. I decided to go a bit more colorful California style with a bright print top. Either way, each look has it’s own stylish statement and I think you can see how versatile a white skirt can be for the summer! I hope you like this feature and hopefully I can network with other amazing bloggers to bring you even more looks. Thank you Chic Street Style for sending over your photos and your stylish inspiration!

FLORAL & FLOWY

Tuesday, May 27th, 2014

Maxi skirts are one of my closet essentials. They are comfortable and yet so stylish. A lot of items pair really well with maxi skirts and you can dress it up or down depending on how you style it. I opted to wear this gorgeous floral maxi from Morning Lavender with a flowy top from Blush Boutique. I wore the skirt high-waisted and tucked in the top to give more height to my short frame. And don’t you just love the criss cross on the back of the top?!

CURRENT CRAVINGS

Friday, May 23rd, 2014

I’m gonna call this post “Current Cravings” for all of the things I am currently lusting after and can’t buy them all because (1) this is my busiest time of the work year and/or (2) my husband/mortgage/bills. But as soon as I reap the fruits of my labor, I will be sure to pick up a few of these beauties!

LOVIN’ LOLLI

Tuesday, May 20th, 2014

So I never thought for a million years I would EVER post a photo of me in a bathing suit on this blog. But I just had to share this adorable one piece I found from Lolli Swimwear. I usually don’t wear one pieces (I think it makes me look like an 8 year old with boobs) but this one has the perfect amount of style (how cute is the bow in the front?!) and shape to flatter most figures. I paired the look with my a gorgeous sheer coverup from my new online boutique, Morning Lavender ! Yes I opened a boutique filled with girly, feminine styles that I love so please check it out! I apologize for the lack of posts lately – we have been working hard to get the site up and running but I promise lots of new posts coming your way soon! Thanks for following!
