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”.  However, the tulip has me confidently buying a few pieces knowing they will have longevity.  I am totally on board this “versatile pieces for before, during, and after pregnancy” train.  (PS – this is not a paid advertisement, I am just really pumped to find stylish “maternity” clothes!)

Eat. Shop. Do.

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!

Laser Cut Leather

SEE LARK! | Laser Cut Leather Dress

I have a new found appreciation for a-line cuts and faux leather fabric.  It is amazing how this Forever 21 dress I bought last year on a whim has the stretch and give to fit a 6-month pregnant woman!  It did look a little too “baby-doll” for my liking, so I added a blazer which helped give it more sophistication.  It felt like the perfect combination for a (rare) night out on the town.

Two Years

SEE LARK! | Two Years

Today marks the second anniversary of SEE LARK!  Two years ago, I started this blogging journey wondering if I would sputter out, but it’s been a place that I love to return to and share personal style, shopping, and random musings.  To celebrate, I have made few layout design changes making it easier to search outfit posts and other fabulous topics. I *may* have also purchased some jewelry to commemorate the occasion as well!  Hope you enjoy the improvements and thanks for your support and readership. Read more

I am head over heels that it’s Friday and for no particular reason either. I guess it’s just the feeling of the upcoming weekend, the ability to shut out work for a couple of days, and sleeping in (while I still can) are reasons enough.  Hope you get the chance to slow down and enjoy time with your loved ones.  Happy weekend!

Late Summer

SEE LARK! | Late Summer

As much as I am looking forward to Fall, I am trying to soak up as much of Summer as I can.  Straw hats and short dresses are the epitome of a lazy, “nothing to do”, warm August afternoon.  I choose an all black ensemble.  I know what you are thinking, isn’t that reserved for colder months and New Yorkers?  Noir get-ups can totally work for Summer, just look for lighter fabrics and pieces appropriate for the weather in question (i.e., sandals instead of knee high boots, but you are all smart and probably already knew that!).  This shirt dress was light and airy, perfect for disguising the salad with buerre blanc sance and a side of fries I consumed at lunch.  Oops.

Wanted: Hip Kid Style

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 wonderful realm of kids fashion and styling.  Correction. Hip kids fashion and styling.  Let’s face it, having a baby shouldn’t be all seriousness and putting all your unfulfilled dreams onto your unborn child.  You have to have some fun and these little tots are not only adorably stylish, they make me laugh.  Here are some of my favorite inspo pics, especially the last one!   Read more

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!   Read more

Jewelry Makes The Best Souvenirs

While attending a family wedding, I heard the most beautiful toast to the bride and groom from the bride’s brother. Their father had passed away about a year before and the brother (man of honor) did a magnificent job of channeling his spirit and humor through the speech. One of their father’s words of wisdom on marriage was to always insist on buying jewelry for your wife when on vacation.   Read more

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! Read more
