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!

PALM PRINT SLIPDRESS

Friday, May 27th, 2016

This long weekend makes me want to hang out by the pool or lounge at some fabulous resort. I’m loving palm print especially for those occasions or just about anything for this Spring/Summer seasons. I found this perfect combination of pink and palm in this adorable palm print dress from Topshop at Nordstrom’s. Its gorgeous print makes it a standout and its light weight material makes it easy for traveling. I paired it with some of my favorite summer accessories from Nordstrom, which as usual has the best selection and variety of jewelry. I can probably spend all day perusing Nordstrom’s site (especially with their current half yearly sale) and find myself completing entire looks with everything from their site – from cute sunnies to designer handbags, gorgeous shoes and of course dainty jewels. Their selection of summer jewelry like these girlie gold pieces and gorgeous gemstones added the finishing touches to this overall fun, summery look.
