I apologize for the lack of blog posts lately! We just got back from an amazing trip to Japan (photos coming soon) and I have been extremely busy catching up with all my work the past week! So many exciting things are happening and it’s hard to believe it is May already! These days, I like to wear a comfy romper or maxi dress when I am busy working. Rompers and maxis are the most comfortable for me – maybe because they are really adult onesies ;). This one here is one of my favorites for Spring and from my boutique, Morning Lavender. I paired it with this gorgeous lace kimono, also from Morning Lavender to dress up the look a bit. I love the detail on this kimono so much and wish I could wear it all the time!
It’s true – I love lace and I love rompers. So naturally I had to curate this sexy black romper for my boutique, Morning Lavender! When I go out at night these days (which is hardly ever), I try to be comfortable and chic at the same time! I love the sexy lace detailing on the sleeves and black and the cute ruffles on the bottom trim. I paired it with some “edgier” accessories like black booties and leopard clutch to give it more of a “night-out” look. I was super comfy all night, except for when I had to go to the restroom (you ladies who wear rompers know what I’m talking about).
Wishing everyone a great, safe weekend, especially those going to Coachella!

I hope everyone had a great weekend! I worked most of Saturday (shooting some beautiful portraits at the studio) and got to spend the rest of the weekend relaxing and enjoying this beautiful weather in SoCal! I know it’s not as warm everywhere else, but it is definitely time for romper weather here in Orange County (sorry don’t mean to rub it in =P)!
I love curating gorgeous pieces for my online boutique – Morning Lavender and I especially love finding pretty, light and colorful pieces for Spring. One of my favorite finds this season is this comfy, adorable blue romper. It has sleeves, pockets and comes in just this happy shade of sky blue. I finished the look with some of my favorite new accessories. I have been searching endlessly for mules in the perfect shade of cognac and found these beauties on Nordstrom. So far they are as comfy as they are cute! Another item I have been tirelessly looking for is a go-to brown handbag that will fit my petite frame and be versatile as a satchel and crossbody. Alas I found this crossbody from Madewell. It holds everything I need it to without overwhelming my frame and it looks just as good as a shoulder bag, crossbody or satchel. As you can tell, I am a pretty particular shopper. I don’t buy just anything – I like to search until I find exactly what I need and part of the fun for me is just finding it! So Spring I’m ready for you!
By now you can pretty much guess that I love lace ;). Well I found this adorable lace romper from one of my favorite stores, Anthropologie. I LOVE all of the lace detailing throughout, especially the long sleeves. This is a great weekend outfit – for brunch or afternoon out and about. I kept the rest of the look pretty simple because I thought the lace itself was such a statement. I can’t wait for Spring and the chance to wear more comfy, stylish rompers!
Hi everyone! Sorry for the slow blogging as of late! Between prepping of our HOLIDAY POP-UP SHOP and preparing for our big Asia trip in a few weeks – I have found little time to work on blog posts, not to mention even looking cute! I bought this adorable lace romper from ASOS recently and thankfully for us SoCalifornians, we can still wear it this time of the year. I paired it with a snuggly, elegant wool cardigan from Morning Lavender to add some texture and dimension to the look. I have so many more looks to share and hopefully I can get it all ready soon for y’all! Thanks for the support and I hope to see you at the Morning Lavender HOLIDAY POP-UP SHOP on November 15 & 16 in Fullerton, CA!

Hello everyone! I hope y’all had a great weekend! This weekend I will be in Vegas for the MAGIC tradeshow representing Morning Lavender. I love traveling and usually when I do, I pack rompers and maxi dresses because they are quite versatile and easy to wear. So I thought it would be fitting to start the week off with this pretty pastel look I put together! I am wearing one of my current favorite rompers from Morning Lavender. I love this one because of the sleeves and the length of it is actually longer than most rompers (not that I really need the extra length) – these features make the romper more sophisticated and dressy so I can wear it to a lunch meeting or an event.
I can’t go a week without buying a new romper, especially when it comes in such a beautiful color like this one from SHOPBOP! It’s such a simple romper but the pop of color really makes it extra stylish. I added some gold and leopard details to complete the look.

Here are some of my other favorite rompers with sleeves!
Oh summer how I love thee… Summer is the perfect time for me to wear some of my favorite things: rompers and hats. I love rompers because they can be comfortable and stylish at the same time (can we say adult onesies?!) and I love hats because they make you feel so darn cool. I am slightly obsessed with the print and fit of this strapless tropic romper from Topshop. I wore it with my favorite new wedges from Toms and I’m pretty much in the exact type of outfit you can find in me all summer. I also took these photos outside my new favorite local eatery spot – the Anaheim Packing House. You should definitely check it out if you live in Southern California!

Greetings from Austin, Texas everyone! The hubs and I are here for a work cation (meaning the hubs is working and I’m vacationing ;)). And when I say vacationing, I really mean eating everything I can possibly fit into my stomach! The husband went to college at the University of Texas, Austin so this city has a special place in his heart. I have to admit I love the vibe of this fun city and there are definitely a lot of cool places to see and delicious food to eat. Here are some of our most memorable meals in Austin so far:
(left to right, CW: (1) John Mueller Meat Co – the brisket was delicious (2) Qui – shareable plates, get the toast and short rib (3) Dolce Neve – yes those are gelato bars..hmmm… (4) Mettle – the cauliflower and steak tartar were my favorites)
You can check out my foodie/photography instagram to see all of the things/food we have been indulging in!
Now for some fashion! For traveling in the spring/summer time, one of my must pack items is a comfortable romper. It’s great because it doesn’t take up a lot of luggage space and also because you can dress it up or down. Just add the right accessories to your romper and you can easily change up the look. I’m a big advocate of dressing appropriately for your environment.

I have a slight obsession with rompers, especially in the spring and summertime. This drapey romper from Urban Outfitters just makes me feel sexy and lazy at the same time. I just want to lounge around in it’s soft material but at the same time go running through a field of flowers. It’s the perfect spring romper and I have never been so ready for warm weather, luckily we get quite a bit of it in SoCal =P.
And no I don’t usually look like this when I’m hanging out at home lol…I wish or the hubby wishes =).
And here are some of my other favorite rompers right now! So comfy and stylish at the same time! Dress it down or dress it up with a pair of heels =).
