Peekaboo

SEE LARK! | Peekaboo

Playing peekaboo is a popular past time in my household these days.  As a result, it made sense that my summer wardrobe reflect the same playfulness.  This dress from Madewell is the perfect apparel version of the game.  Its subtle cut-out allows you to bare just a bit of torso, which for one who doesn’t like to show a lot of midriff was just enough to feel fun and sophisticated.  PS…it has pockets!!!

Is This Normcore?

SEE LARK! | Normcore

I learned the term “Normcore” last year when it blew up the fashion world. It describes an “anti-style” style, think bland, non-descript clothing.  Some may argue that it’s not a trend all. Regardless, I have embraced more basics into my wardrobe making it easy to get dressed in the morning. Normcore or not, it’s definitely practical and stylish. Continue reading “Is This Normcore?”

Utility Player

An anorak or utility-style jacket is a great piece for Spring since it provides just enough warmth on a windy day. I scored this beauty on Poshmark a couple of months ago but haven’t had the chance to wear it until this weekend. I made a minor modification with the built-in belt.  It actually belongs on the bottom with a few threads sewn in to keep it in tact.  Since I couldn’t imagine myself wearing a belt (or let it hang unbelted) that low, I snipped it free and brought up to the waist.  It’s perfect with jeans and slacks, but I also think it would look great with a midi or maxi- length dress.

How To Wear Color

If you are anything like me, you find comfort in neutral colors. Gray, black, white, and brown will never treat you badly. However, it can be fun to wear color every now and then. Here are some ways to incorporate color into your wardrobe. Continue reading “How To Wear Color”

Fuel The Fire

I have been loving the workout clothing options at Old Navy.  Oh no, it’s not what you think…I like their workout tees to wear casually, not to actually work out (I joke)!  It’s hard to banish these clever tees to only the gym since they work so well under a blazer and jeans.  Throw on a pair of heels and you are ready for happy hour…er once you are done running that is.

Post Holiday Sequins

SEE LARK! | Post Holiday Sequins

We are all probably experiencing a little bit of the post-holiday blues.  Gifts are all unwrapped, the last champagne has been consumed, and you are packing away your sequins/glitter/feathered garments for next year’s holiday events. Good news folks…you don’t have to pack away your festive wear.  There are great ways to incorporate these pieces in the new year.  Case in point, look at the sequins leggings.  It’s dressy yet practical for more than the occasional cocktail party. This is especially true for the pair I scored from Boutique Chic Auctions.  I am usually wary of sequins since the backside can be scratchy against the skin; however, this pair has a warm and cozy lining and the best part is that it’s super budget-friendly.  I dressed them down for daytime wear with an oversized “boyfriend” shirt which is my go-to top these days.

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”

Plaid and Camel

I am feeling rad and channeling my high school self with this midi plaid flannel dress. I love the length which makes it wearable for winter. Since my size is influx right now, I am also super stoked that it only cost me about $25. Every woman should feel good at any size and it’s great to have budget friendly options for those “in between” phases. Continue reading “Plaid and Camel”

Noir

As I transition back to my pre-pregnancy style, I am finding comfort in an all-black outfit.  Black is of course slimming, but honestly the cold weather is what is really driving me to something simple and monochromatic. As a side note, stretch fabric is a girl’s best friend! Continue reading “Noir”

#TBT Style: Neon Yellow

SEE LARK! |#TBT Style: Neon Yellow

discovered this in my unpublished archives.  It was taken almost exactly a year ago when I had just changed roles within my company and excited to not travel 90% of the time for work.  It’s nice to see that the outfit – a bolt of neon yellow in a traditional v-neck sweater and leather accents in a wool coat – is still relevant this season.  It goes to show you that modern twists to classic pieces really pay off!
