It’s the first of February (seriously where did January go?!) and I’m kicking off this month with a cute Valentine’s Day look from Morning Lavender. It may be highly commercialized but the girlie girl in me has always loved Valentine’s Day and any excuse to dress cute (any carry around heart shaped balloons). This look combines pretty neutrals with a lil’ pop of color from the heart elbow sleeves.
I will have more Valentine’s Day inspiration coming to you soon including a special giveaway so stay tuned!
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!
Happy New Year folks! I know it’s already January 11th but it was nice to take some time off work and social media. I caught the flu around Christmas which sucked but I was lucky to spend some time with family and friends the rest of the holidays. It’s definitely my favorite time of the year and our Christmas tree is actually still up lol.
Well I’m excited to bring new posts and looks to you in 2016! I have so many personal and professional goals and I hope this year goes by a lot slower than the last! One of my professional goals is to consistently have content on the blog so if there’s anything you would like me to style or share, let me know in the comments section below! I am a very girlie girl and obsessed with feminine fashion so you will often find me in a combination of fitted tops and midi skirts (see previous posts – tulle polka dot midi skirt and denim midi skirt). I found this floral midi skirt from Chicwish and I thought the woolen fabric was perfect for this time of the year. I paired it with an old off the shoulder sweater – I’ve started the usual new year purging of my closet so I’m finding some old favorites that I forgot about! I love combining old pieces in my closet with with new items and it saves some money in the bank too :).
The holidays are the perfect time to wear a red tulle skirt! I found this petite friendly one from ASOS and loved the fullness of it. I did wish it had more of an underlayer and non-elastic waist (be weary of see-through-ness), but I was pleased with the fullness and the price. I went completely red by adding these new red bow pumps. I love the black bow pumps I wear all the time from ASOS and been wanting a pair of red ones and found these ones with gorgeous, big ankle bows. These bow heels were very inexpensive from SheIn and my only complaint about them is they have white velcro on the straps (which is handy for small ankles), but the velcro is kind of big so it shows a little which you can see if you look closely at my feet (don’t look too closely – I hate my veins!). But again for the price (under $32), I can’t complain and it’s the type of shoe you probably won’t wear all the time. I might try trimming the velcro…
As you can probably tell by now, I love wearing tulle skirts (see previous black maxi tulle skirt and pink midi tulle skirt posts) and the holidays are no exception! I love this adorable Polka Dot Tulle Skirt from Morning Lavender because it’s so versatile and easy to wear with it’s light cream color. I love the pretty tulle layer but I also feel that the skirt is easier to wear because it is not too full. I wear the skirt a lot with different options – a cropped black top for an evening look or with a cute fitted sweater tucked in for a cozier feel. I combined it with this fitted J.Crew plaid shirt for a truly festive look and my new gold bow heels that my wonderful Morning Lavender team surprised me with (they know me so well)! It’s really a blessing to do what you love and be surrounded by people you love! I hope you like this sweet holiday look as much as I do!
P.S. Our lights stopped working right before we did this shoot! Photoshoot fail but we kept on working! Creating content is fun and a lot of work in case you are wondering ;). Now back to buying gifts!!!
I love button down shirts from J.Crew because their tops in petite sizing fit me really well. I’m wearing a 00P here in this shirt. This top is currently 30% off with code GIFTNOW! I also love this polka dot button down (also 30% off) and I wear my J.Crew chambray shirt all the time.
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.
I love dressing for Fall and I love mixing combos like this colorful plaid skirt with a soft pullover sweater and pearl necklace. It’s been pretty warm here still in SoCal otherwise I might have added a nice coat or fun tights to add more to the look. Fall is a great time for layering and wearing different pieces together so have fun with your Fall looks!
The hubs and I have been traveling quite a bit lately for work but here are some of my fall favorites that I’ve been wearing and featuring on my Instagram! You can also sign up for Liketoknow.it (see also link on my sidebar called “SHOP MY FEED”) and if you like my photo on IG, you will receive a personal email with direct links on where to purchase the featured items!
This Fall, blush and burgundy are colors that are currently trending. Combining these colors together create a pretty feminine look that adds some lightness to usual darker fall tones. I created this ready for the office look with this burgundy pencil skirt from Banana Republic, which I may add is currently ON SALE! I combined it with some old favorites from the closet because lets face it, we can’t always buy new stuff! While it’s fun to stay on trend, remember to shop for classic pieces that you can wear repeatedly.
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.
