1. Peak Lighting Fixture ($1800)

2. Industrial Ceiling Mount ($99)

3. Diamond Pendant Cage ($230)

4. Brass Lampshade Table Lamp ($130)

5. Light Up Letter ($119)

6. Industrial Brass Sconce ($70)

7. Parato Wall Sconce ($85)

8. Minimal Cage Ceiling Lamp ($42)

9. Mid Century Modern Chandelier ($700)

 

Remix

SEE LARK! | Remix

The name of the styling game when pregnant is remix. Your wardrobe has an expiration date so you don’t want to buy too much or too ornate of pieces otherwise you don’t get a lot of use out of them. I scored this Bedford dress by Hatch during the summer and have already worn it multiple times.  I have styled it for a casual look with gladiator sandals and paired it with heels for a formal affair.   Read more

Three Looks To Emulate From J. Crew’s Style Guide

SEE LARK! | Three Looks To Emulate From J. Crew's Style Guide

Fall is the most exciting season for fashion. Magazines are as thick as novels, we see a lot of rich colors and textures layered together, and so many accessories (handbags, gloves, and hats…oh my!).  With so much eye candy, it’s easy to think you have to buy it all.  I had that experience while inhaling the latest J. Crew style guide over lunch a few weeks ago.  The inner voice was saying “We need that” over and over again.  After taking a step back (and breathing into a paper bag), my more practical side came through. With a little inspiration and incorporating only a few new things, old pieces in your wardrobe can become new again.  Here are three J. Crew looks that caught my eye and how to recreate them without breaking the bank. Read more

Eat. Shop. Do.

This week marks the beginning of the my third trimester and suddenly it’s harder to move around, sleep through the night (they say it’s “practice”), and I can’t see my legs.  With that said, I wouldn’t trade it for anything in the world.  These are minor ailments and I am grateful for the good health I have experienced thus far.  I just need to remember to eat smaller meals in order to avoid indigestion!

Snakeskin

SEE LARK! | Snakeskin

Since I was born in the Year of the Snake, I thought it appropriate to show my “true” self through pattern. I tend to favor solids so wearing a snakeskin print, in pink no doubt, is a change from the everyday. Thankfully, pairing it with trusty gray tones and a denim jacket brings it back to a safe, yet non-boring, place. Read more

Budget Friendly Leopard Prints

SEE LARK! | Budget Friendly Leopard Prints

Leopard print is a pattern that never goes out of style but it’s easy to get sick of seeing the same pattern season after season.  Therefore, I am excited about incorporating leopard in an unexpected way like in different colors, larger scale prints, or as an accent trim. If leopard still feels a bit cagey to you (pardon the pun) then never fear, there are many budget friendly options out there that let you play with the trend without making a major commitment.  I discovered six pieces from SheInside that are a great twist on the traditional leopard print and none are over $25, yes you heard me right, check them out: Read more

We made it through the first week in September, so everyone deserves a cupcake! As sad as I am to see summer unofficially end, I am excited for what’s to come in the Fall…holidays, the start of football season, and cooler temperatures. What do you love about Fall? Read more

High Low Tough Girl Pieces

Now that we are officially in September, I can’t help but look and search for all things leather. A white leather jacket and an upgrade in the basic leather pumps are a good start.   Read more

Tulip Dress

SEE LARK! | Tulip Dress

I have discovered the perfect dress and it comes in the form of Hatch’s tulip dress.  It tapers out and then back in at the hem, creating a draped/blousey effect that would look great on any figure.  I used to have this mental block about wearing anything “maternity”, I mean why would I *seek* out maternity wear if I wasn’t expecting?  I think it was even a commandment on What Not To Wear, “Thou shalt not wear pregnancy clothing when not pregnant”.   Read more

Pregnancy really brings out the kindness in strangers.  In the past week, people have given me sweet compliments on the baby bump,  asked me how I felt or when I am due, and helped me pick up/carry things. These random acts really make my day and I plan to pay it forward. What nice way to kick off a holiday weekend!
