SPRING TRENDS: STRIPES & DENIM

Stripes and denim are definitely two of my favorite trends for this Spring and what better source to find such versatile pieces than Nordstrom?! I find especially great pieces from their curated Topshop collection which is usually on trend AND also flattering on my petite frame at the same time. Once I saw this bow back bodysuit (you know me and my love for bows :)), I knew I had to have it!  Baby got bows on the back!

BOWS & LACE

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!

FIT AND FLARE FLORAL DRESS

I’m a firm believer that a girl can never have too many flowers so I couldn’t help but combine all of my favorite florals in one ;). I love that it’s May and peony season is here! I also love this gorgeous fit and flare dress from ASOS that matches the season so perfectly. With it’s full skirt, very flattering neckline/bust support and pockets, this colorful floral dress has it all and the girlie girl in me just couldn’t resist it.

BIRD & FLORAL PRINT MIDI DRESS

Spring and Summer are the perfect seasons to play with prints and I am in love with the bird & floral print of this floral midi dress. I just love the blend of pale pink and green colors. Once again, ASOS’s petite section fits me perfectly with no alterations needed.

BELL SLEEVE DRESS

What more can you ask for in this year’s Spring dress?! I’m loving the trends right now – off the shoulder, bell sleeves and this pretty shade of peachy pink and this dress from Urban Outfitters has it all! I dressed up this look a bit but you can also dress it down with nude wedges or some cute lace up flats.

COLORBLOCK MAXI DRESS

I’m adding some color to my Spring wardrobe with this gorgeous colorblock maxi dress. I am absolutely in love with the mix of shades of blue, pink and white in this beautiful dress as well as the lovely pleating. I wear mostly Petite sizing from ASOS but with the adjustable straps in this dress, I was able to wear the length on this dress without any alterations! By dressing up this look with the right accessories, it’s perfect to wear to Spring/Summer weddings.

EVERLY SPRING FLORAL DRESS

Today I’m all about comfy, casual and cute in this Spring floral dress from Everly Clothing. As a buyer for Morning Lavender, we actually carry quite a few pieces from Everly Clothing as we love their beautiful fabrics and prints. I particularly love this new off the shoulder floral romper we curated for the shop! I accessorized this pretty peachy dress with some easy-to-wear, everyday essentials like my favorite reversible tote and a belt to create more shape to my frame.

On other note, I have a fun weekend planned celebrating two good friends’ wedding! Can’t wait to relax and just have some fun!

STRIPES & WIDE LEG

Being petite, I’m always looking for ways to look taller and these wide leg pants perfectly elongate my frame. The size 00P from Banana Republic is pretty true to size and I wore them with my tallest wedges so I didn’t have to get the length altered at all. Yes I’ve always been obsessed with off the shoulder tops and this crop top, stripe version from my boutique, Morning Lavender pairs so well with the pants and keeps the illusion that my legs are longer than they really are =P.

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!
