SLEEVELESS & STRIPED

I previously wore this pretty sleeveless trench as a dress with high boots for Fall but here I’m showing how to wear it differently as an outer layer and as a great Spring transition piece. I paired it with one of my closet must-haves – an easy-to-wear striped dress that pretty much goes with anything. I especially love packing this dress when I travel because there are so many ways to wear it. Going into Spring, I’m also wearing a lot of booties and peep-toed shoes as I’m storing some of the bigger boots for next Fall. Here I’m wearing this comfy pair from Naturalizer and if you use my code LNL20 at checkout, you can save 20% off!

SUEDE OVER THE KNEE BOOTS

One of the struggles of being a petite gal is finding a pair of tall boots that actually fits! I recently found these gorgeous suede over the knee boots that surprisingly fit my small calves from Nordstrom. I just love the light tan color that goes well with a majority of my Fall pieces. I have been finding so many amazing fall shoes from Nordstrom including these adorable open toe booties and these block heel suede sandals. I completed this fall inspired look with this versatile checkered wrap from Madewell that I can comfortably wear as a cape or a layered as a scarf. I love finding pieces that create so many options!

COLD WEATHER LAYERS

Here is my second look from a fun getaway in Mammoth! I must be honest – I’m not much of a snowboarder or skier (I’m very scared of heights) but I LOVE the snow so it was fun to ride the gondola up to the top of the mountain and enjoy the beautiful weather! It was a bit windy up top so I made sure to wear lots of layers to keep warm.

SNOWY DAYS

This weekend, we squeezed in some R&R by spending a fun weekend in Mammoth with some of our friends. We had a great time enjoying the beautiful snow, taking photos (of course), eating a lot (of course) and just hanging out in our cozy cabin. Being from Southern California, I don’t get to dress up in winter layers that often, so it’s kind of fun to dress for the cold weather (sometimes). I’m finally getting more mileage out of my Hunter Tour Boots (please rain more SoCal) and my comfy and warm winter parka from ASOS that actually comes in petite sizes and has a cute detachable fur hoodie. Don’t miss out – ASOS is having a great SALE where you can save $50 off if you spend $200 or more with code FRESH50! You can get this parka and that lace midi dress I raved about in my previous post!

MAUVE SWING DRESS

I love this easy-to-wear swing dress that comes in a variety of pretty colors from Nordstrom. I chose this pretty mauve color that is very in trend right now and it’s also the perfect color to transition from Winter to Spring. Swing dresses are so versatile and comfortable that it’s hard not to want to wear it all of the time! I love adding accessories to dress up the look a bit since the dress itself is so simple.

FALL SWEATER DRESS & SCARF

You may recognize this look from the new Morning Lavender Fall Lookbook I curated and styled. I loved this look so much that I decided to keep it for myself (trust me it’s hard not to want to keep everything when you own a boutique) and share that we don’t need models’ bodies to rock the same look. It’s true our model Megan looks so much better wearing it but I have learned to be happy with my petite frame and comfortable with the fact that there are things I just can’t wear or pull off with my short stature. Sometimes I think about starting a blog where I would share “what I would wear if I were normal size”. I mean there are so many cute styles that would be perfect if I were just 4 inches taller! I guess that’s why I started Morning Lavender – so I can style regular, everyday women the way I would want to dress! And every time we do a photoshoot or lookbook, it’s like I get to play dress up on a life size doll.

Anyway, I finally found this navy swing sweater dress that doesn’t look like it’s swallowing me up and is both flattering and so very comfortable. When I curated it for the shop, I especially loved the dress because of the high neck, long sleeves and slightly flared style of the dress. It really is the perfect Fall dress! To make the dress even more flattering on my frame, I added a belt to show more shape. I wore it purposely high on the waist to make my torso look shorter and the rest of me longer. I have also been loving the look of over-the-knee-boots, which elongates your legs as well. The scarf is a tad oversized for me but I think it framed the look well and added something different and playful to the outfit! Plus you can never go wrong with plaid this season! I do feel like I should be in London or somewhere more Fall than Orange County.

SLEEVELESS TRENCH

Greetings from Mexico! The hubs and I are still traveling for work but I’m excited to share some more looks with you this week! It’s still pretty warm here in SoCal so I’m still able to pull off sleeveless looks like this. If it were colder, I’d probably add a simple longsleeve tee like this one underneath and add some tights/leggings. I love this trench from Chicwish because it can be a dress or outerwear, especially since it hits lower on me in length! It has pockets, a great shape and belted fit so you can adjust it easily for your frame. I really think Fall is my favorite season! Now if only we had real Fall weather!

BOOTS WITH THE FUR

It’s finally getting cooler in SoCal which means I get to bust out some off my fall favorites like faux fur and boots! I love mixing neutrals and patterns like this fun combo I put together recently. I am super petite and never thought I could pull off over-the-knee boots but surprisingly they make my legs look longer! And I am slightly obsessed with faux fur vests – I know they aren’t for everyone, but you got to at least have one in your closet!

And props to the hubs who makes me look this good in a parking garage!
