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!

STRIPE OFF THE SHOULDER DRESS

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. This dress is so lightweight and easy-to-wear that I also recently wore it again on our trip to Big Sur, which was so amazing! Follow me on Instagram to see more!

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!

OFF THE SHOULDER DENIM DRESS

Happy Friday!!! I’m loving denim for the Fall and this denim midi skirt is one of my favorites in rotation. I love the button up detailing and how wonderfully it pairs with simple tops like this stripe one. This look shows that dressing for Fridays can be casual and chic.
