Jump!

SEE LARK! | Jump | New Balance + Zara

I have told myself over and over again that I should wear sneakers more often. After hours in heels, sometimes my feet are just begging for something more comfortable. Remember my sneaker challenge last summer after my broken foot? Now that I am healed and sneakers aren’t necessary, finding kicks that have the right style and proportions still proves difficult. Well, I finally found my match in a pair of New Balance. I should have known, Newbies got me through my long distance running days so why wouldn’t it be the right shoe for everyday wear? Now that I have these bad boys on my feet and wearing pastel colors to celebrate Spring, I just can’t help but jump for joy!

Over the winter, I had been searching for months for the perfect pair of cat eye sunglasses. When I discovered the Super Lucia, I combed through all the different varieties to find just the right pair. Read more

Geology 101

SEE LARK! | Geology 101

Gemstones, geodes, druzy stones, and agates…everywhere I look, sparkly rocks are very much on trend in jewelry. Don’t know the difference among all these terms? Here’s a quick cheat sheet so you’ll be in the know on your next shopping trip. Read more

Eat. Shop. Do.

SEE LARK! | Eat. Shop. Do.

I know I say this a lot, but thank goodness it’s Friday! Sorry for being a little MIA and radio silent this week, it’s been really busy at work and all I have been doing is work and sleep (and then repeat).  Fortunately, I am starting to get the hang of my new role so the outlook is cautiously confident. With that in mind, this weekend is all about reconnecting with life. Read more

SEE LARK! | Jenni Kayne Dress

While in Charleston, I discovered a gorgeous midi length dress from Jenni Kayne’s 2014 Resort Collection. On the hanger, it doesn’t look like much, but when you put it on, it’s one of the most well tailored and flattering dresses I have ever worn. Read more

Black and white has been prominent this season so it seemed appropriate that this month’s Etsy picks pay homage to it. I am in love with this universally flattering black maxi dress and stocking up on pretty stationary. Read more

My First

SEE LARK! | My First

You’ve waited for the right time and the right occasion.  At some point you are ready for your first investment piece.  After finishing college and starting my first job, the first splurge was a Dolce & Gabanna dress. It was a little LBD with a sexy, yet subtle, lace inset and cost around $350. That is a lot to spend on a dress, especially when you first graduate college.  Read more

SEE LARK! | Eat. Shop. Do. | H&M Conscious Collection

Okay, I’ll admit this week was pretty good. Miss Grumpy Pants (me) begrudgingly admits the sky didn’t fall this week. It started off with lots o’ rain but now DC will have at least three days with 70+ degree weather in the forecast…hurrah!  The cherry blossoms are blooming and the days are getting longer and brighter. There is just something about Spring that keeps your mood in check and all of a sudden, the glass is half full. Here are some ideas on how to celebrate your weekend. Read more

Modified Black Blazer

rag-bone-blazer-1

A blazer is one of those pieces of clothing that never go out of style. Though its original intent was more formal in nature, it’s my go-to clothing staple for work and play. I own plenty of black blazers, but was drawn to this Rag and Bone version (it also doesn’t hurt that I got it on crazy discount). With a fishtail back and leather collar, it’s an update to the traditional cut and a perfect layering piece for Spring’s unpredictable weather. Read more

[Hanging out with OnePoePuppy the cutest and chillest dog I know]

Heading West usually means Northern California for me, but given the harsh winter this year and the need for sunshine and warmth, hubby and I headed to LA.  I am a bit embarrassed to say we didn’t venture very far.  We stayed mainly in Santa Monica and Venice Beach hanging out with good friends.  Read more
