I’m blogging again from Italy and again from the beautiful Grand Hotel A Villa Feltrinelli. The scene was so breathtaking and I knew I had to wear this fabulous floral maxi shorts jumpsuit from my boutique Morning Lavender for dinner one evening. I just love how flowy and comfortable this jumpsuit is and it was perfect on the dock, overlooking Lake Garda. Besides being the perfect outfit seaside, I also think it makes a great wedding guest outfit that really stands out! This dress was a part of our #CBLxML collection and sold out the first time. We just restocked it so make sure to get your hands on one this time!
Thanks to my hubs for the amazing photography as usual!
The hubs and I are really blessed for the opportunity to shoot a beautiful wedding in Tuscany this weekend at the amazing venue La Foce! We are even more lucky to have jobs we love and travel together as the #huanderinghuangs! We went a few days early to do some location scouting, eat extra pasta/gelato and of course take in the beautiful scenery. I have been dying the find the gorgeous sunflower fields in Tuscany and happy to see they were in bloom right now. I put on this floral summer maxi dress and twirled away in the endless fields as we watched the sunset and my husband per usual, got some great shots!
Stay tuned as I blog more of our Europe trip! Follow me on Instagram @laceandlocks and Snapchat @lacenlocks where I will be sharing more of our trip regularly!
What better time to wear white jeans than the summer?! And yes my love for off the shoulder tops continues as I paired it with the jeans for a great 4th of July casual and cute look. And yes I LIVE in my mules. Unfortunately I bought them last year so they are now sold out. But I found these pair of mules that are very close in color and style!
I’ve been wearing a lot of denim lately (see denim off the shoulder top and denim off the shoulder dress), but I couldn’t help but get another denim piece when it’s this cute! I love the front bow and how the cutout emphasizes the bow. I aslo loved the fact that Topshop offered this in petite sizes! With the boater hat, I’m feeling a bit French in this outfit and it makes me even more anxious for our trip to France next month! Stay tuned!
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!
This long weekend makes me want to hang out by the pool or lounge at some fabulous resort. I’m loving palm print especially for those occasions or just about anything for this Spring/Summer seasons. I found this perfect combination of pink and palm in this adorable palm print dress from Topshop at Nordstrom’s. Its gorgeous print makes it a standout and its light weight material makes it easy for traveling. I paired it with some of my favorite summer accessories from Nordstrom, which as usual has the best selection and variety of jewelry. I can probably spend all day perusing Nordstrom’s site (especially with their current half yearly sale) and find myself completing entire looks with everything from their site – from cute sunnies to designer handbags, gorgeous shoes and of course dainty jewels. Their selection of summer jewelry like these girlie gold pieces and gorgeous gemstones added the finishing touches to this overall fun, summery look.
I found this body hugging lace midi dress from For Love & Lemons and I am in love! I love all of the lace detailing, especially the sleeves and back. It comes with a nude slip to give it a great sheer look but covers up the areas you need ;). P.S. I didn’t realize how tan I was until I wore this all white look!
Greetings from Puerto Los Cabos! The husband and I are traveling for a workcation – we just finished photographing a beautiful wedding here and now we are spending a couple of days for some R&R and celebrating my birthday :). It’s a blessing we get to travel for work and we get to do it together! When I travel, I love packing light but also bringing pieces that suit my travels and surroundings. Cabo is such a beautiful coastal town and I thought this tropical print dress from a For Love & Lemons & Urban Outfitters collaboration would be perfect! Follow me on Instagram and Snapchat (lacenlocks) to see more of our silly adventures!
I’ve been lusting over off the shoulder looks of late and this dress in a pretty color from ASOS is stylish and comfortable. I’ve also been a big fan of neutral accessories and my summer go-to-bag is this versatile cross body from Madewell. It works with a variety of looks and perfect for traveling! Guess where the hubs and I are off to next?!
Today I’m sharing another recent favorite romper of mine – this one from my boutique Morning LavenderMorning Lavender Lace Romper. Rompers are a pain for us girls to use the bathroom but I swear they are so comfy and cute – it makes up for it! A sad story (kind of) about my shoes – recently on our flight from Boston->NYC, we noticed upon landing in NYC that someone had broken the lock on our checked in suitcase. It was not TSA because they would not have to break the lock and because they usually leave a note if they had searched our bag. Our bag looked like it had been rummaged through but at first inspection, it looked as if nothing had been stolen. A couple of days later while in NYC, I was looking for my favorite mules (pictured below) and noticed they were nowhere to be found! Someone had stolen my mules that were sold out on Nordstrom and Dillards! And they were size 5 – who steals size 5 shoes?! I’m fortunate they weren’t my favorite pair of bow shoes, but still just the thought of someone violating your stuff sucks. I went on a frantic search online and actually found them on sale at Nordstrom Rack! So I bought 2 new pairs (size 6) but they are just a teeny bit too big. So that’s my shoe story and moral of the story? Don’t steal people!
