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!

OFF THE SHOULDER LACE MIDI DRESS

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!

RED OFF THE SHOULDER SWEATER DRESS

If you have been following my blog, you know I love off the shoulder styles. I found this burgundy red off the shoulder sweater dress and I knew it would make a perfect Valentine’s date night dress. I love the fitted shape of the dress and how it hugs your body in a flattering way. This is probably the simplest look I’ve put together for Valentine’s Day compared to past years. You can find me in dressier looks with this pink tulle skirt and this black maxi tulle skirt.

CAMEL OFF THE SHOULDER SWEATER

Hello 2017! This my first blog post of the year and I want to apologize for being so MIA these past few months. I’ve been juggling being a girlboss/wife/daughter/sister/friend. I spent A LOT of time since September traveling back and forth to San Francisco as we opened our first Morning Lavender Boutique! It has been an intensely rewarding last few months and I’m so proud of what our team has accomplished! Things are finally settled at our SF boutique which means I will be home a bit more and able to get back to some of my regular routine like blogging! I’ve been living in this cozy and stylish off the shoulder camel sweater. I love wearing trendy pieces that are also extremely comfortable and versatile.

I also finally got the chance to wear these Stuart Weitzman Highland Over the Knee Boots that I bought for myself over Christmas. I’ve been eyeing them for so long that I decided to finally #treatmyself and give in to these beauties. I am surprised at how comfortable they are and so far they have not scrunched or sagged down which I found to be a problem with other suede over the knee boots. I love them so much already that I’m contemplating getting them in black too!

DENIM OFF THE SHOULDER ROMPER

I love how versatile and comfy this off the shoulder romper is! It’s such a simple look that can be dressed down or up. I added a cute belt and some of my favorite accessories to pull this simple look together. With the dark denim wash, this romper is a great transition from Summer to Fall.

OFF-THE-SHOULDER CULOTTE JUMPSUIT

I just love how comfy and chic off-the-shoulder culotte jumpsuit is! It’s perfect for traveling because it’s lightweight and you can dress it up or down. I wore my mules for a bit but switched out to cute tortoise sandals when we walked around a bit more. I love hanging out by the Seine River in Paris. The light was just magical towards sunset and we just sat by the river and enjoyed the beautiful weather and ambiance.

I hope you are enjoying all of our travel posts! More on the way!

MORNING LAVENDER MAXI JUMPSUIT

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 just love this look so much – it’s especially perfect for travel with it’s fun stripes, comfy but cute tan wedges and the perfect boater hat to top it off.

PLEATS & STRIPES

I love this combination of pleats and stripes! I added a seasonal twist to a classic pleated skirt with this fun, ruffly striped off the shoulder top which I’m wearing with just about everything these days! I’m less insecure about my shoulders than arms so why not show a little shoulder these days?! 😉

Well the hubs and I are off to chase cherry blossoms again this year in Japan! Follow me on Snapchat @lacenlocks and Instagram @laceandlocks to see our adventures!
