Vested Interest

SEE LARK! | 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).

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”

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”

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?”

Remix

SEE LARK! | Remix

The name of the styling game when pregnant is remix. Your wardrobe has an expiration date so you don’t want to buy too much or too ornate of pieces otherwise you don’t get a lot of use out of them. I scored this Bedford dress by Hatch during the summer and have already worn it multiple times.  I have styled it for a casual look with gladiator sandals and paired it with heels for a formal affair.   Continue reading “Remix”

Snakeskin

Since I was born in the Year of the Snake, I thought it appropriate to show my “true” self through pattern. I tend to favor solids so wearing a snakeskin print, in pink no doubt, is a change from the everyday. Thankfully, pairing it with trusty gray tones and a denim jacket brings it back to a safe, yet non-boring, place. Continue reading “Snakeskin”

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”.   Continue reading “Tulip Dress”

Warrior

Maternity style tends to lean toward the sweet-side of things. Since I like my outfits with a little more edge, I have found that the best way dilute the sugar is through accessories. I love a good gladiator sandal and ones that go up to the knee offer a great contrast to a white shift dress. Continue reading “Warrior”
