Oh La La

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!   Continue reading “Oh La La”

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 remind me of the Iro pair that I had lusted over about a year ago. I received some major compliments on my look-a-likes, surprisingly from both women and men! Continue reading “Starry Eyed”

What’s The Hurry?

SEE LARK! | What's The Hurry?

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 but when you are on an island, anything goes… and it goes slowly. Continue reading “What’s The Hurry?”

Pintucked

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).

Stars, Stripes and Surprise

SEE LARK! | Stars, Stripes and Surprise

July 4th festivities were last week but I can’t help but carry forward the stars and stripes theme just a wee bit longer. I don’t know if anyone has noticed, but my recent outfit posts have been more on the “blousy” side. That’s because I have an ever-growing mid section.  I am excited to share that hubby and I are expecting our first child in early December! Continue reading “Stars, Stripes and Surprise”

Classic Pieces

Basics seem to be a major theme for me this week.  This time around, it’s all about white, gray, and black colors. These colors in the  form of classic pieces anything but basic. I love a good white button down shirt, with sleeves rolled up or un-tucked, it has a great casual vibe. Continue reading “Classic Pieces”

Flowy

Summer time means maxi dresses and Tibi makes one of my favorite flowy maxis.  I have been drooling over this open back style ever since I first laid eyes on it a couple of years ago, but given the high price tag and the fact it was sold out, I thought it would only be a figment of my fashion imagination. Continue reading “Flowy”

Favorites

I must admit, I play favorites. I have a favorite lipstick, food, nephew (okay I only have one nephew)…even a favorite spot in my home.  In the city where space is a commodity, I live tall in a three-story house where the stairway between the second and third floor takes first prize.   Continue reading “Favorites”

Layered In The Lower East

While in New York, I had the bright idea to go to the Lower East side to get a bite of those tasty pancakes from Clinton Street Bakery.  This place is tiny, always packed, and on a first come, first serve basis.   Continue reading “Layered In The Lower East”

I Want To See Your Pom Poms From the Stand

I have this Frank Ocean song in my head on repeat, especially after making these pom-pom shoes.  I took them out for their inaugural spin in my neighborhood, H Street, for lunch the other day.   Continue reading “I Want To See Your Pom Poms From the Stand”
