On today’s post, I’m sharing a very pretty off the shoulder lace dress in the prettiest shade of mauve. This dress is meant to be midi on most average heights (see dress on the model) but on my petite frame, it cuts right at my ankles when I wear heels. It’s kind of a weird spot for the dress to hit but I still think it’s a very flattering dress due to its high waisted seam. I love Spring and I’m looking forward to all of the gorgeous Spring dresses!
Today I’m sharing one of my favorite dresses that I purchased on Nordstrom’s site. I’ve been in love with Self Portrait dresses for some time now and I love that they have been recently added to Nordstrom’s gorgeous selection of dresses. I needed a dress for my special birthday date night dinner last week and it was very helpful to find such a wide and nice selection of dresses available on Nordstrom.com. I received the dress just in time thanks to Nordstrom’s great shipping policy and received a ton of compliments when I wore this dress for our delicious dinner at Providence in LA. The beauty of this dress speaks for itself with its incredible lace detailing and lovely midi length. It is a bit of splurge but the quality and fit of the dress are flawless. This is definitely one of those dresses that make you feel confident and feminine and to me that’s worth it ;).

One of my travel goals has always been to visit the amazing lavender fields in Provence! I have this obsession with lavender (as you can tell by my boutique name Morning Lavender), and the husband obliged and let us take a day trip to the south of France in search for this stunning scenery. We took the 3 hour train ride from Paris to Avignon, rented a car, passed through the charming town of Gordes and ended up in Sault 1 hour later where the lavender was endless and the sun was just about the set. It smelled heavenly everywhere and after you got over the fact that there were just as many bees as there were lavender, you realized how lucky you are to experience such a beautiful place. Renting a car in the countryside allowed us to see so much more of Provence and we fell in love with the charm and simplicity of the region. I’d love to go back sometime and see more of the gorgeous countryside!
Paris is one of our favorite cities in the world so the hubs and I always find ourselves traveling back there. We even got married in France! We love taking in the sights, culture, food and just the beautiful architecture. I love the ornate detailing of so many of the buildings and the romantic vibe of the entire city. I combined my love for feminine clothing with the city’s romantic setting and came up with this colorful, feminine look. I wear this lace top often because it goes so great with skirts. One of my favorite ways to wear it is with a full maxi skirt as seen in this blog post. The lace top worked well with my new colorblock midi skirt and I loved all of the pretty colors in one skirt.

My off the shoulder obsession continues and I’m in love with this new red lace off the shoulder dress! I love all of the detailing, the sleeves and the of course, the bright pop of color that goes well with Palm Springs or any Summer destination. It’s a great travel dress (the thick lace doesn’t wrinkle), especially for a fun date night on your trip. It’s a sexy and flirty dress and the lace gives it an ultra feminine touch! The husband even gave me a thumbs up on this dress ;).
If I could wear lace everyday, I probably would! Lately, I have also been living in off the shoulder styles. I especially love to mix and match different textures like this fun off the shoulder denim top with this pretty lace pencil skirt. The whole look is flirty and breezy – perfect for a Spring to Summer transition.
What better way to dress up a simple, denim look than with a pop of color in the form of pink bow heels?! These affordable statement shoes (only $25!) might not be the most comfortable but they are the cutest!
Remember this lovely pastel pink midi dress?! Well ASOS just released a pencil skirt version of it and I think I might just love it as much as the original. What’s not to love about the crop top style, lace detailing and gorgeous pop of pink?! The fit is so perfect with its Petite sizing and I didn’t have to alter it one bit. I added my favorite feminine accessories of course to complete the head-to-toe look.
I love finding new feminine dresses, especially in the form of a beautiful lace midi dress, like this pretty black lace midi dress or romantic pastel pink midi dress I previously blogged about. I recently found a new lace dress from ASOS to add to my collection and it comes in a pretty soft grey, feminine color. I love shopping at ASOS because of their Petite line and also because of their premiere 2 day shipping! This dress has the prettiest fit and flare shape and detailing. I love that I didn’t have to alter it one bit and can’t wait to wear to a wedding or special occasion (yes I stock up on pretty dresses since you never know when you might need one!).
I shared a neutral Valentine’s look and a romantic black lace skirt, and here’s my last Valentine’s inspired look with a pretty pop of red! I love the gorgeous red color and detailing of this lovely long sleeve lace romper! It’s a great, flirty date night look that’s comfortable and sexy at the same time! Hope you enjoyed all of my Valentine’s Day looks this year and whether you have plans or celebrating being single this year, it’s always fun to get a little dressed and dolled up, don’t you think?! =)
This romper is a size Small and the torso does run a bit short so it fits more like an XS, which is perfect for me! I would recommend ordering a size up!
