SEE LARK! | Hip Kid Style

Hubby and I actually found out the gender of our baby early on in the pregnancy (as a byproduct of modern-day testing) and I am excited to share with you that it’s a boy!  Honestly, I would have been happy with any gender, the saying “as long as they are healthy” never ringed so true. So as the weeks progress, I have been more focused on preparation and my online skillz has led me to the…

Oh La La

Oh La La, more stripes! #style #ootd

SEE LARK! | Oh La La

Wearing stripes always makes me feel like a Parisienne. You’d think that horizontal stripes would not be a friend to a growing figure but it can actually be quite flattering if you choose the right shape.  Go for a more form-fitting design and wear it with something that has a defined shape and angles like a blazer or a long sleeve collared shirt. Throw on a red lip and voilà!  (PS – Check out…

SEE LARK! | Eat. Shop. Do.

The weather has been eerily pleasant for the month of August (I hope I haven’t jinxed us all) and it has really added to an extra jolt of pleasantness to my mood. Therefore, no matter what comes my way, my mantra has been “It’s okay”…perhaps it’s a new derivation of  “Don’t worry, be happy”? Ah, fuggedaboutit!

My Hatch discovery and love for gladiator sandals #style #HATCHtagged

SEE LARK! | Warrior

Maternity style tends to lean toward the sweet-side of things. Since I like my outfits with a little more edge, I have found that the best way dilute the sugar is through accessories. I love a good gladiator sandal and ones that go up to the knee offer a great contrast to a white shift dress. Speaking of the shift dress, this one is made by Hatch Collection whose maternity line is great for…

Did the cake pops get your attention?  Good.  Now where can I get some cake pops?! In all seriousness, I can’t believe it’s August already.  I am secretly excited because it means Fall and that means leather jackets, coats, and layers.  Is it wrong to judge the season by how many pieces of clothing and accessories one can wear?

Starry Eyed

SEE LARK! | Starry Eyed

As I forge on in my second trimester of pregnancy, I have discovered that shift dresses are becoming my new best friends since they are the only non-maternity style that still fits!  Tibi makes some of my favorite dresses (as evidenced here) because the brand encompasses the three S’s – sleek, simple, and silk.  I wore this lovely star patterned dress with a pair cuffed Sole Society wedges that…

Trench Coat Dress

Lately, the weather in DC has been pretty mild. I decided to take advantage of the good fortune and take my trench coat dress out for a spin (while it still fits – thank goodness for the elastic waistband!). I love the little details like the flap in the back, front pockets, and rolled up sleeves. It gives a little menswear touch to an otherwise feminine silhouette.

Inspiration vs. Imitation

Exploring the fine line between inspiration and imitation

SEE LARK! | Inspiration vs. Imitation

While trolling on Pinterest to see the latest eye candy, I stumbled upon what I thought to be a Zoe Karssen sweatshirt.  When I clicked on the link, I realized it was actually a copy of the original sold at a really cheap price.  I immediately thought “This is a copy…BAD”, hoped I didn’t accidentally download a computer virus, and moved on.  Months later, I saw more pieces from the same website…
