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!
By now, you know my fondness for lace and rompers. Get them together and add pockets and I’m in love! Summer is the perfect time of the year to wear rompers and I especially love wearing ones that you can easily transition to night. I curated this particular one for Morning Lavender because I just love the delicate detail throughout, contrasting nude lining underneath and open key hole back. There are so many details of this romper – it’s hard to believe how inexpensive it is!
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!
Who doesn’t love a skirt with great movement?! This ASOS skirt in a bright purple is purrrfect for the summertime. I love wearing my skirts high waisted and pairing them with crop tops to add some much needed length to my look. I added my favorite summer floppy hat and I’m good to go!
This is probably the first weekend in a long time I am NOT working. I will be celebrating my best friend’s bachelorette this weekend so follow my INSTAGRAM for some snippets of all the fun and yes it will be a tame one! 🙂
I am so excited for today’s blog post! I did a cross blog collaboration with the lovely and stylish Brenna of Chic Street Style! Brenna is an amazing blogger and stylist from the Midwest specializing in dynamic cheap-chic looks. This was such a fun project to do with her! We each put our own style on this gorgeous white gingham midi skirt from Morning Lavender. As you can see, Brenna went for a chic Southern white look with the perfect floppy hat to tie it all together. I decided to go a bit more colorful California style with a bright print top. Either way, each look has it’s own stylish statement and I think you can see how versatile a white skirt can be for the summer! I hope you like this feature and hopefully I can network with other amazing bloggers to bring you even more looks. Thank you Chic Street Style for sending over your photos and your stylish inspiration!
Here is a peek and details of Brenna’s lovely look! See more on her Chic Street Style blog.
Maxi skirts are one of my closet essentials. They are comfortable and yet so stylish. A lot of items pair really well with maxi skirts and you can dress it up or down depending on how you style it. I opted to wear this gorgeous floral maxi from Morning Lavender with a flowy top from Blush Boutique. I wore the skirt high-waisted and tucked in the top to give more height to my short frame. And don’t you just love the criss cross on the back of the top?!
I’m gonna call this post “Current Cravings” for all of the things I am currently lusting after and can’t buy them all because (1) this is my busiest time of the work year and/or (2) my husband/mortgage/bills. But as soon as I reap the fruits of my labor, I will be sure to pick up a few of these beauties!
So I never thought for a million years I would EVER post a photo of me in a bathing suit on this blog. But I just had to share this adorable one piece I found from Lolli Swimwear. I usually don’t wear one pieces (I think it makes me look like an 8 year old with boobs) but this one has the perfect amount of style (how cute is the bow in the front?!) and shape to flatter most figures. I paired the look with my a gorgeous sheer coverup from my new online boutique, Morning Lavender ! Yes I opened a boutique filled with girly, feminine styles that I love so please check it out! I apologize for the lack of posts lately – we have been working hard to get the site up and running but I promise lots of new posts coming your way soon! Thanks for following!
