YELLOW PLEATED MIDI SKIRT

It’s no secret that mustard yellow is one of my favorite colors for Fall so I knew I had to curate something in this beautiful color for Morning Lavender. It didn’t take me long to know what I wanted as I think pleated skirts are so classic and feminine. This mustard yellow pleated midi skirt makes me so happy when I wear it, which is actually pretty often since it’s such a versatile piece. I love dressing it up with a lace top or dressing it more casual with a denim button down shirt. However you style it, you can’t go wrong with this yellow beauty! P.S. If you are interested to see how I style pleated skirts, check out my style video.

I STARTED A YOUTUBE CHANNEL!

So I’ve been wanting to start this for awhile now but never really had the confidence to do so (I really don’t like hearing myself talk and “do I really have anything interesting to share?!“). After much encouragement from the hubs and probably 2 years later than planned, I finally decided to get out of my comfort zone and start my own YouTube channel!!! I feel a little late to the game as all the kids these days seem to be really good at this YouTube stuff but I’m gonna give it a try!

With our busy lives, I thought it might be interesting to share some behind-the-scenes of what it’s really like to be a #bosslady, wife, blogger and homeowner. We have some exciting projects in the works, including a new Morning Lavender store and remodeling our new home so be sure SUBSCRIBE to my channel to see all the craziness that is about to happen.

P.S. I know the volume of the music is too high – I will be making adjustments in future videos! Thank you for the feedback!

After doing my first VLOG, I got a little bit more confidence to make a style video with Morning Lavender as well! I’m only 5 feet tall so I’m always self-conscious about how I fit in clothes and look on camera (I know it’s weird because I have a fashion blog) so this was very nerve-wracking. Luckily, I’ve learned a lot after doing countless Morning Lavender photoshoots and working with our awesome models so I was able to pull off this style video! It was important for me to do a “Buyer Haul” to show how much thought and love goes into my curation process for the store. Everything you see on Morning Lavender IS actually handpicked by me and I feel a great attachment to all of our cute pieces.

Be sure to also SUBSCRIBE to Morning Lavender’s YouTube Channel because we will be creating a lot more content for you guys as well!

FALL DENIM WITH EXPRESS

First of all, I’m sooo excited to be an #ExpressPartner! I’m working with Express to share some of their new styles from their Petite Collection over the next few months and I can’t wait to share all of my fabulous finds with you all. I’ve shopped at Express for years and it’s great that they have expanded their petite line to carry so many versatile and everyday pieces. Today’s post is all about denim and with Fall right around the corner, I’m already transitioning to darker denim styles. This affordable pair (only $40 right now!) of mid rise distressed ankle jeans is super petite friendly and not to mention incredibly comfy. I can see these jeans as a Fall staple – wearing them with cute booties, cozy sweaters and Fall jackets. I especially love the distressed look of these jeans with the slits hitting in all the flattering places. All Express jeans are currently 50% off so I’d hurry and snag up a few of these Fall essentials!

FALL TRANSITIONAL ITEMS

It’s hard to believe mid August is already here! With Fall right around the corner, I’m looking to add versatile Fall transitional pieces to my closet. Perfect Fall transitional items are easy-to-wear pieces that can also be layered to create looks suitable for the Fall climate. I love adding Fall colors to my wardrobe in hues of olive, grey and brown. When looking for essential closet pieces, I always go to Nordstrom for their wide selection of trendy and classic everyday pieces. One of my favorite finds from their site was this olive jacket in the perfect shade for Fall. The jacket is not too heavy so I actually see it as an amazing year-round piece for my closet. Plus it comes in size XXS! Another great for Fall are the grey mules I purchased from Nordstrom’s Anniversary Sale. The mules are no longer on sale but they are still at a great price and they are as comfy as they are cute! I’m always finding the cutest shoes for the season from Nordstrom!

CAMEL & BURGUNDY IN CHICAGO

Greetings from Chicago!!! We took a much needed week off from work this week to visit and eat our way through the beautiful and fun city of Chicago! It’s a bit chillier here but we love experiencing the different seasons and seeing a change in weather and Fall colors. I brought my favorite new coat that I’ve been searching for and I finally found this great fitting camel coat from Topshop at Nordstrom! I’m in love with the gorgeous camel color and how it compliments so many of my closet staples like a simple jean look or my favorite Fall sweater dresses! I love finding so many versatile Fall staples from Nordstrom and having so many lovely layering options.

Leopard & Burgundy for Fall w/ UGG & Nordstrom

Yes I’m wearing my UGG leopard slip on shoes again today and I love how well they go with so many different Fall looks!

There are endless Fall options on Nordstrom’s website and this leopard-burgundy combination is one of my current favorites. I love how this look is so comfortable and effortlessly chic!

CASUAL CHIC WITH UGG

Today I’m sharing this casual & comfy look wearing one of my new Fall staples: these fun & fabulous leopard slip on shoes from UGG. I own a few of the UGG Classic Boots but I love that UGG has expanded their designs to include more versatile and stylish footwear. I also love that I can find so many selections of fabulous shoes look these at Nordstrom! I’ve been traveling a lot for work lately so having a pair of comfy, yet stylish shoes is a must.

FLOWY MAXI DRESS

This is just one of those dresses that make you feel amaaazing. I curated this gorgeous maxi dress especially for Morning Lavender and I fell in love with it so much (as did our customers), that we now carry it in 4 amazing Fall colors! This beautiful shade of purple has been one of our best sellers and after you wear it, you’ll know why! The layers upon layers of flowy fabric make this dress such a statement in such a simple silhouette. And can we talk about the low, crisscross back?! The dress runs slightly large and long for my petite frame so I had it altered but it was so worth it. Now if only I can just stand there and twirl all the time! 😉
