Best Dressed Wedding Guest & Friday Faves Link Up



Happy Friday, lovelies!
And Happy Cinco de Mayo!


I don't know about you, but my week has been absolutely insane! Thank you SO much for those of you that checked in on me. I am feeling much, much better! I finished my (real) last day of work yesterday and although, I have a lot to catch up on, I am definitely going to use this day to relax and recharge :-) The next few weeks will be pretty crazy as well. In a week and a half, I will be heading to South Carolina for the first time to attend my cousin's boot camp graduation. I'm hoping to check off a few of my bucket list places while I'm there (and sharing via Instagram stories) so if you have any recommendations for anything at all, send them my way! I have a handful of amazing and uber stylish guest bloggers taking my place while I'm gone. Also, next week my husband and I will be celebrating our fourth wedding anniversary! Yay! <3

My Week



Hi friends!

I hope you are enjoying your week! So, this is totally not what I had planned for today, but I'm going to be very real with you. And I wasn't planning to even write anything out but here it goes...

May Favorites: 5 Trends to Try Now



one | two | three | four | five | six

Since I have gone "full-time" with the blog (except I'm subbing this whole week - pray for me lol! It's going to be an 80+ hour work week), I have been brainstorming different ideas for new blog posts. Of course, you will still be seeing quite a few outfit posts from me (at least two a week), but I'd also love to bring in some new and fresh content for you all. A lot of you had said that you wanted me to share more of myself with you so I am currently planning a "real talk" series where I talk about different personal issues that we all share. As for other ideas, I will likely be adding the sporadic interactive shopping post, round up post, a blogging series, styling tips, etc. I'll be making a few changes to the website over time as well (maybe even a complete redesign). I'm hoping that this will mix things up and make Lizzie in Lace a more exciting place to be :-) If you have anything specific that you'd like me to cover in a future post or any questions that you'd like me to answer, let me know in a comment below! I would love to chat about topics that you all are interested in!

The Best Facial Cleansing Brush for All Skin Types



Happy Monday, lovelies!


I hope you all had the best weekend! You all know how adamant I am about my skin. I am always trying out the latest and greatest in skincare, whether that includes creams, masks, cleansers or the most innovative tools.

Are you surprised? I recently started using the Ultimate Skin Spa System from Vanity Planet so I'll be sharing my thoughts with you below.

Jeans That Fit (the struggle is real)









Good morning, loves!


I apologize for the late post! My laptop stopped working mid-post last night and I have been attempting to figure out how to work our new Mac.

Venofye Review: Queen Bee Collection




Hello, lovelies!
I hope you all had an amazing Easter!


You should all know by now that I am the biggest skincare junkie. After working at a dermatologist's office for over three years, I realized just how important it is to protect and take care of our skin. A great skincare regime is crucial! Not only does it make your skin glow and create an amazing base for great looking make up, but it has important long term effects for slowing down the aging process and maintaining healthy skin. Today, I am reviewing Venofye, a luxury skincare brand that includes a very interesting element in their products.

Hi Beauties! Happy Friday!


Spring cleaning is officially in full force. It seems like I've been going through my closet for quite some time now, but there's something about that first peek of sunshine after a cold and rainy winter that makes me want to organize everything and do a huge purge haha. After all, I've got make room for a few Spring pieces right? ;-)

Rainy Day


 
Happy Monday, lovelies!

It's been raining a TON in California and everything is looking soooo green! I love this time of the year because the other-wise dry town that I live in has a gorgeous view of mountains, green hills and blooming wildflowers. It makes my work drive that much better. :-) Read on to see my favorite rain day outfit!

Happy Friday, pretty friends!

Today I'm talking about one of my favorite clothing lines ever... LC Lauren Conrad! If you've been reading my blog for a while, then you know that I LOVE all things Lauren Conrad. The feminine details, soft colors and flowy fabrics in her collection are definitely my cup of tea and it should come as no surprise that I have many of her pieces in my closet. You can imagine my excitement when I found out that she was coming out with a handbag line AND fine jewelry collection. Read on to see how I styled these pretty pieces!

How to Grow Your Instagram - Part One




Happy Wednesday beauties!

As promised, I am starting an Instagram series today yay! I have touched on this topic before but with the excess of questions I've gotten lately, I thought I'd share again :-) For the next few Wednesdays, I will talking about all things Instagram including tips and tricks and how to effectively grow your following along with how I personally edit my photos and what I do for my Instagram on a daily basis. If you have anything else you have questions about or would like me to add, let me know in the comments section!

So what qualifies me to give you advice on Instagram? Well, in the last 8 months, I have grown my following by 600% and it has been consistently increasing each month. I have learned a few things through extensive research over the years and through my own trial and error. I know that growing an Instagram account is something a lot of people struggle with (I was one of them too) and it may seem hopeless with the Instagram algorithm ever-changing, but it's definitely possible and it will open up so many more opportunities for your business and blog, which is why it is SO important.

I hope you all enjoyed your Valentine's day <3 I just wanted to thank you all SO much for your supportive and encouraging comments on my Blogiversary post. I'm so glad that you all could learn from what I've experienced in the past two years and I'm so happy to share that knowledge with you. I received an overwhelming response on one tip in particular: Not comparing yourself to others. This seems to happen so frequently in the blogging world and otherwise. I'll be sharing some insight with you all today regarding this important topic and whether you are blogger or non-blogger, I hope that this somehow helps.

Happy Monday, loves!


I hope you had an amazing weekend! I actually attended my first blogger meet up for Style Collective and met so many amazing ladies.

12 Things I've Learned in Two Years of Blogging & Friday Faves Link Up



Happy Friday, gorgeous gals!


Today is not only the best day of the week, but it also happens to be the best day of the year...(well, almost haha!). It's my two year blogiversary!! Holy smokes, the time has flown by! I still remember my days before the blog, always wondering if it would ever come to fruitation. I remember reading other blogs (blogs that are HUGE now) and wishing that one day I could be that brave...that one day, I could stop caring what others thought and take the risk to go after my dreams (I talk about this in my very first post). I envied those bloggers because they were courageous and put themselves out there for the world to see in the name of fashion. My dreams have become a reality because I took that leap of faith and I'm here to share a bit about my journey thus far and some important lessons that I've learned over the past two years.

11 Outfit Ideas for Valentine's Day



Good morning ladies!

Valentine's Day is right around the corner and I thought I'd share all of my "Valentine's Inspired" looks in one place! It's no secret that I loooove pink and probably wear it way too much (oops!) so of course, there are tons of pink outfits in this post with touches of purple. Apparently, I don't have any red...like at all. I made this discovery while rummaging through my closet this past week to find a red outfit for an upcoming event. I found a pair of red shoes, a purse and a coat. That's it! *cue jaw drop* I guess I'm just not a "red" kind of gal...although, I do like burgundy. :-) Check out my most recent V-Day inspired looks below!
