Comfortable fashion has been a major trend with the likes of Lululemon, Athleta, and other athletic brands creating designs that take you from the gym to street. We have also seen the trajectory from the other end where high-end labels and main stream retailers like Zara and J. Crew get in on the action with public-appropriate sweatpants. Now comes Lou & Grey, LOFT’s lounge…

T-shirt dresses are  becoming an essential component to my wardrobe and nobody makes them like Alexander Wang. I have become obsessed with the T by Alexander Wang line for its softness and tailoring and thanks to sources like The Outnet, one can grab a few pieces on discount. When it’s hot outside and you are too zoinked to think about dressing yourself, I highly recommend throwing on a T-shirt…

I looked at the calendar and realized I have been living in DC for 10 years now and wonder if Texas has revoked my statehood card. Regardless, DC has really changed in that time span, including its taste palette. No longer do you have to go to New York or San Francisco for good food, DC eats are up there with the best of them. If you are planning a visit to our nation’s capital, here are a few…

SEE LARK! | Vieques Part 2

Monday’s post talked about the sights and activities in Vieques so Part 2 of the vacation recap focuses on the comfort and style of The W Vieques Retreat. The island is small and a little over 9,000 in population size so you can imagine there aren’t a lot of hotel choices available.  The W has a knack of finding the most remote locations and inserting luxury, so it’s tempting to just stay on…

The typical beach uniform calls for a maxi dress. To keep it from looking dull, turn to interesting cuts like this beauty I found on Etsy.  With a plunging back and deep v-neck front, it feels less muu muu and more sexy. Okay, it was a little too sexy for me so I doubled up coverage with a soft cotton bralette in a matching color. I would normally advocate against letting your underthings show…

Vacation always becomes equal parts relaxation and adventure.  Getting to Vieques, Puerto Rico and to its beautiful beaches is the adventure and then spending time on the beach becomes your relaxing reward. In the first part of my Vieques vacation recap, I’m highlighting some of the destinations and activities that you can find here on the island.

I finally made it home late last night.  No matter how exciting or exotic the adventure may be, there is no place like home.  I’ll share some highlights of my Vieques vacation next week, but until then, have a wonderful weekend!

  • EAT. After spending the past two weeks in Texas and Puerto Rico, I think I will be okay if I don’t see a taco or empanada for a while. I am going to sink my taste buds…

The baby bump is in full force now so getting dressed is becoming more strategy than effortless ease.  Fortunately, dress silhouettes these days (and the hot summers) are helping me out. Most summer dresses are flowy and in forgiving shapes. I really liked this cotton dress from Madewell(this is an extra small if you can believe it). The black and white color gives it a tailored look and the…

SEE LARK! | Wait-Worthy Fashion

People say patience is a virtue, but I have always found it hard to put it into practice. This is especially true when it comes news of fashion collaborations or upcoming collections. Getting a preview and then seeing the release date always seems like such a long wait.  In addition to the much anticipated Alexander Wang for H&M announcement, here are three more collections/collaboration…

I discovered this fun fact while visiting the Perot Museum in Dallas. While sound may travel faster through steel than air, I need both steel and air to get me to my vacation destination. I am excited to hop a plane and get my vacation started – sun, sand, and beach here I come! I hope you all have a wonderful weekend as well.
