It’s January but I’m already looking ahead to Spring with this bright and feminine transitional look! It’s been quite hectic with work but when I get a chance to dress up or wear heels, you will usually find me in something feminine & classic. I love how fun and easy-to-wear this bright pink bell sleeve dress is and I’m wearing my favorite new pink bow shoes I got over Christmas! You guys know me – I love me a good bow shoe!
Today I’m sharing one of my favorite pieces from my boutique, Morning Lavender!!! We recently released our Classic Collection, a special curated and designed collection of feminine favorites that we believe will never go out of style. One of the pieces we absolutely love is our Madeline Pink Bow Coat. With it’s feminine silhouette, pink bow accent and gold buttons, it’s hard not to see why it’s a must have for every girlie girl! So today, I’ve teamed up with our shop to GIVEAWAY one pretty Madeline Pink Bow Coat to one lucky winner! The contest will run on Instagram only so be sure to find me on Instagram: @laceandlocks and follow the details to enter!
If you been following my blog, you know that I just love wearing rompers! I think rompers are very comfortable and flattering on petite gals like myself. One of my go-to sites to shop for rompers is ASOS thanks to their great selection of dressy and casual rompers and petite friendly sizing. I found this darling nude bow romper and immediately became obsessed with the oversized bow and overall feminine look. I can wear rompers all the time so having a dressy one that I can wear to nicer occasions is just perfect!
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!
My love for scallops and stripes this Spring continues! This blush scallop mini skirt is just the perfect shade of pink and the right length to make it easy-to-wear and pair with anything. Plus it matches my Chloe Mini Drew perfectly :). You’ll be seeing a lot more of this rosy pink color this year as it’s one of the Pantone colors of the year. I don’t mind – I find it an easy alternative and just as versatile as white or other neutrals.
With Spring and wedding season almost here, I’m starting to look for pretty dresses for various occasions. I’m a big fan of maxi dresses and this pleated pink floral maxi dress has all the right amounts of pretty! I am obsessed with the pleats and long, flutter sleeves. I just got the dress so I might alter it 1-2 inches since it didn’t come in a petite size. I still had to get it though since it was so darn pretty! I paired the dress with one of my favorite shoe trends going on right now caged heels. It’s a great alternative to your typical strappy shoe and I think it still looks classic but trendy at the same time. I’ll be on the lookout for more pretty occasion dresses so stay tuned!
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.
Greetings from Korea! It’s freezing here but it been such a wonderful experience so far! Follow me on Instagram and Snapchat (lacenlocks) if you want to see all the fun (and food) we are up too!
We shot this Valentine’s Day inspired look right before we left! If you have been following my blog, you know I love putting together date night looks (see black tulle maxi skirt and pink tulle midi skirt. I found this pink ball gown skirt and I knew it would be a perfect statement look for one of my favorite holidays! I added a crisp, white polka dot shirt to balance out the bright pink skirt. I didn’t want this look to look cheesy with such a bright color – I wanted the whole look to look effortless and classic, which I think I achieved with a classic top and minimal accessories. If you are missing the hubs in this post, he was behind the camera. But don’t worry, I have some more date night looks coming up where he will make an appearance (hopefully I can convince him again).
P.S. It was kind of windy that day so please excuse my crazy hair!
I can’t believe it’s December and I don’t know about you but I’m swamped with holiday decorating, gifts, making plans with family and friends and of course the usual work and life balance. So I apologize for the lack of new outfit ideas lately but there is just so much going on! I love dressing up for the holidays and this feminine look I put together consists of some great options from White House Black Market. I never shopped there that much before (remember when it use to just be white & black items?!) but every since I got these cute culottes, I have become a big fan of their petite sizes and staple pieces. They are having a winter sale right now so be sure to take advantage of their 30% discount on regular priced items! I love this pink midi skirt which would be a great year-round skirt to have.
It’s to default to black and greys this time of the year but why not add some color to the cold weather?! I have an endless love for the color pink so having a pink coat just makes sense. And not just any pink coat but a double breasted, petite friendly one like this gorgeous coat from Banana Republic. I paired it with more pops of color like this amazing fuchsia satchel Henri Bendel and Plaid Blanket Scarf from Morning Lavender. It’s really nice that it’s finally chilly in California (and by chilly I mean 60’s) and I can wear my coats!
