2014 Outfit Round-Up

SEE LARK! | 2014 Outfit Round-Up

This is such a cliche, but time really flies when you are having fun. This year has been especially busy with a new role at work to start off the year and a new baby to end it. Through it all, personal style was my drishti in times of stress. While taking a look back at my outfits from this year, I picked out a few of my favorites. I predict these style elements make a repeat appearance in 2015. Continue reading “2014 Outfit Round-Up”

Vested Interest

A puffy vest is one of my favorite outerwear pieces. I had owned and worn the same ol’ black vest for years and finally upgraded to a new version in gorgeous green.  Fortunately, it’s also one of the rare pieces that I can wear right now that is non-maternity! Continue reading “Vested Interest”

Touches of Gold

SEE LARK! | Touches of Gold

Sometimes the outfit is all about the accessories. This is definitely the case with my work wear.  A simple navy dress (see a non-maternity version of this outfit here) creates a perfect backdrop for layering gold necklaces and these gorgeous Valentino Rock Studs that I scored on Poshmark. It’s a great way to add bling in a sophisticated and office-appropriate way. Continue reading “Touches of Gold”

Cozy Cardigan

I love the first chill of the season.  It’s not too cold to bear but cold enough to bring out chunky knit sweaters, cardigans, and coats. I am loving this cardigan from Zara and its high collar.  It completely bypasses the need for a scarf.  It’s a perfect piece for transitioning weather and a quick trip for a breakfast bagel (I have my priorities). Continue reading “Cozy Cardigan”

Black + Blue

SEE LARK! | Black + Blue

I overheard a conversation while on the elevator the other day involving one woman, who was wearing a black top with a navy sweater, telling another woman that if her daughter saw her wearing black and blue together that she would be appalled.  Well no offense, but it sounds like her daughter doesn’t know what she is talking about! Rules like not mixing black and blue and or not wearing white after Labor Day are so passe.   Continue reading “Black + Blue”

Refined Plaid

With the introduction of Fall comes a variety of plaid patterns for the choosing. I tend to go for the reliable black and white combination in a larger print.  It’s graphic and feels more sophisticated than your “everyday” plaid.  Adding a burgundy heel and a leather jacket (which has been in heavy rotation lately),  are a great toppers that help me channel my pre-pregnancy self. Continue reading “Refined Plaid”

Accentuate The Positive

SEE LARK! | Accentuate The Positive

As I near my ninth month of pregnancy (who are we kidding, it’s really 10 months), I have learned to embrace the baby bump.  It was cute and manageable in the second trimester, but lately I have been feeling large and in charge. My first inclination is to hide in large swaths of fabric.  Then realize I should cherish this time and accentuate my “asset”.  Thank goodness for a basic black tank dress, it’s form-fitting in a slimming color and adding a jacket helps balance out the mid-section. Continue reading “Accentuate The Positive”

Laced Up

SEE LARK! | Laced Up

I have really been drawn to lace lately and was dying to find a lace dress to wear for work and play. Versatility is key given that my current wardrobe is on a time limit. This Isabella Oliver dress is perfect with a blazer or leather jacket. I wore it solo for my baby shower and will top it with a sweater when it gets colder. Continue reading “Laced Up”

Tucked In Top

SEE LARK! | Tucked In Top

I must admit, I was skeptical about tucking a top while pregnant. I didn’t think it would be flattering but as the belly grew and the tops got longer to cover, things started to look moo-moo-ish…and not in a good way. So I thought, “What the heck! let’s give the half tuck a try!” and was surprisingly pleased with the outcome. Continue reading “Tucked In Top”

B Is For Blue

SEE LARK! | B For Blue

Hubby and I had the pleasure meeting up with Mary Kate, our wedding photographer, to help us capture some pre-baby moments together.  I felt compelled to wear blue for the baby boy we expecting.  Therefore, it was an excellent reason to put on my navy blue leather jacket (my favorite piece from the Phillip Lim x Target collaboration) and handbag and sport dark blue nail polish.  My favorite pairing for navy blue is gray and I am amazed at the stretch of this Tart infinity dress (last seen here).  It still fits ladies!
