OFF THE SHOULDER HALTER FLORAL MAXI DRESS

It’s the season for maxi dresses and I can’t get enough of the floral print on this gorgeous maxi from my boutique, Morning Lavender. I love the off the shoulder vibes as well as the higher waist line which makes any gal look taller. I’m contemplating cutting off the halter straps (easy DIY) to make this dress true off the shoulder. FYI – I didn’t have the dress altered in length – I’m wearing 4 inch platform heels here!

SPRING OFF THE SHOULDER FLORAL BARDOT DRESS

It looks like the off the shoulder trend isn’t going anywhere and I’m not complaining one bit! I adore off the shoulder styles as they are very flattering for my neckline and I love finding them a variety of styles and prints. This fitted, bardot style dress from ASOS has a gorgeous Spring print and its petite sizing makes the fit perfect for my frame. I love pairing a beautiful print like this with simple, feminine accessories!

YELLOW FLORAL MAXI DRESS

February is halfway here and I can’t believe we are almost transitioning into Spring! To transition to Spring, I’ve been updating my wardrobe with more color and more floral. This yellow floral maxi dress I curated for Morning Lavender is a pretty and perfect transition to Spring! I am obsessed with the bright pop of yellow and the flattering wrap style of the dress. Plus the high-low hem of the dress makes it petite friendly for gals like me ;).

FLORAL & BOOTIES FOR FALL

Today I’m sharing another fun Fall outfit with Nordstrom. I’m slowly switching my wardrobe to Fall tones and finding so many new and versatile pieces from Nordstrom. I found this gorgeous printed floral shift dress in pretty Fall colors and paired it with one of my favorites from last year – this great fitting faux leather jacket. This faux leather jacket is one of my closet staples as it goes perfectly with everything from dressed to skirts and jeans.

FLORAL MAXI DRESS AT LA FOCE

I am turning 1 year older today and as I do every year, I take today to look back on all that has happened before today. This past year has been truly incredible – from enjoying all of the wonderful moments with my amazing husband, traveling to so many incredible places (like the beautiful La Foce in Tuscany), finding a more fulfilling work/life balance and reaching so many goals for my dream of an online shop. I feel like we’ve done so much in such a short time, but it also feels like so much time has passed and there is still yet so much to do. I consider myself an endless dreamer – always envisioning that there’s more ahead. Maybe I’m overambitious, an overachiever as you might say. I like the road more difficult to travel and at this old age (really don’t ask how old), I’m surprised I’m not tired. I feel blessed everyday that I have so many opportunities and blessings in my life. I am very excited for what this year will bring and hope for strength to live everyday to the fullest and without regret. Thanks to everyone who continue to support my blog and believe in me!

I wanted to share these images today because I remember feeling so incredibly lucky the day we arrived at La Foce in Tuscany. We were in awe of what a beautiful place it was and how blessed our jobs of destination wedding photographers had taken us here. Even though my hubs is one heck of a photographer, I feel like these photos don’t even do this place justice. From the scenery to the landscaping to the estate itself, everything was stunning and straight out of a movie. The wedding, couple and guests were amazing and we can’t wait to share those images on our wedding photography site. We had some downtime after the wedding and I got to twirl around the grounds in one of my favorite new maxi dresses from Morning Lavender. I loved this dress so much that I kept both navu and white versions of the dress AND paid my amazing tailor to alter them to fit me perfectly. I raised the shoulders a bit to bring the overall length to my petite height and added a snap button on the front to keep cleavage to a minimum. I am just obsessed with the flowiness of the dress plus the billowy sleeves, gold buttons and gorgeous floral print.

TUSCANY SUNFLOWER FIELDS

The hubs and I are really blessed for the opportunity to shoot a beautiful wedding in Tuscany this weekend at the amazing venue La Foce! We are even more lucky to have jobs we love and travel together as the #huanderinghuangs! We went a few days early to do some location scouting, eat extra pasta/gelato and of course take in the beautiful scenery. I have been dying the find the gorgeous sunflower fields in Tuscany and happy to see they were in bloom right now. I put on this floral summer maxi dress and twirled away in the endless fields as we watched the sunset and my husband per usual, got some great shots!

Stay tuned as I blog more of our Europe trip! Follow me on Instagram @laceandlocks and Snapchat @lacenlocks where I will be sharing more of our trip regularly!

FIT AND FLARE FLORAL DRESS

I’m a firm believer that a girl can never have too many flowers so I couldn’t help but combine all of my favorite florals in one ;). I love that it’s May and peony season is here! I also love this gorgeous fit and flare dress from ASOS that matches the season so perfectly. With it’s full skirt, very flattering neckline/bust support and pockets, this colorful floral dress has it all and the girlie girl in me just couldn’t resist it.

Spring and Summer are the perfect seasons to play with prints and I am in love with the bird & floral print of this floral midi dress. I just love the blend of pale pink and green colors. Once again, ASOS’s petite section fits me perfectly with no alterations needed.

EVERLY SPRING FLORAL DRESS

Today I’m all about comfy, casual and cute in this Spring floral dress from Everly Clothing. As a buyer for Morning Lavender, we actually carry quite a few pieces from Everly Clothing as we love their beautiful fabrics and prints. I particularly love this new off the shoulder floral romper we curated for the shop! I accessorized this pretty peachy dress with some easy-to-wear, everyday essentials like my favorite reversible tote and a belt to create more shape to my frame.

On other note, I have a fun weekend planned celebrating two good friends’ wedding! Can’t wait to relax and just have some fun!
