How To Style Kicks

I love high heels and practically lived in them until recently. Let’s face it, city living plus bumpy sidewalks equals aching feet. Factor in a new baby and I have come to terms that flats, specifically sneakers, are probably a good idea. I had always felt that sneakers were too sporty to wear outside of the gym until I figured out a few tricks for making them look more polished.  Here are some key pieces that can up the style notch to your kicks.

Thank Goodness For Sweatpants

SEE LARK! | Thank Goodness For Sweatpants

As the title of this post indicates, I am grateful for sweatpants.  I am also thankful for the fact that it is appropriate these days to wear sweatpants out in public (with the right styling of course). The stretch and comfort are a postpartum lady’s best friend and with the vast selection of styles and price points, gives me plenty of variety to choose from.  This harem style made by Gap Body is a current staple of mine, perfect for a stroll in the park with the little one.

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”

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).

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.

Same Denim, Different Day

As mentioned on Tuesday’s post, I found a pair of jeans to live in for the next few months.  The last look I showcased was dressed down, so now I try to stretch the versatility of my maternity wardrobe by dressing up the same pair of distressed denim. Continue reading “Same Denim, Different Day”

I am pretty pumped to finally find a pair of comfy jeans to take me through my third trimester. At first, I thought it was pretty fun to wear a bunch of dresses but found it limiting when you just want to go casual. Given that Summer just past, the other challenge I faced was mentally imagining myself in hot skinny jeans – no thank you. Continue reading “Spicoli”

Are Vans The New Mom Shoe?

SEE LARK! | Are Vans The New Mom Shoe?

When you think of Vans, what’s the first thing that comes to your mind? I think of skateboards, teens, and well…youth. While this is all true, could there be another side of Vans?  Could it be the shoe for soon-to-be moms in dire need of style and comfort?! I thought I would be able to still rock heels all day long while pregnant but the third trimester is proving to be a little tougher than I thought.   Continue reading “Are Vans The New Mom Shoe?”
