Birthday Wishlist

img_7311

January is typically not anyone’s favorite month. Everyone is coming off the holiday highs and Spring is still in the distant future. January birthday babies are probably the only exception to this feeling. Every year, I remind myself that my birthday follows shortly after New Year’s and the fun doesn’t end. When family members ask what I would like for my birthday, I never know the answer. My wants range from “of the moment” needs to things that are super expensive (a girl can dream). Nowadays, I think more carefully since a gift needs some practicality or it will be left unused. So I curated a small set of favorites that meet both function and luxury. Continue reading “Birthday Wishlist”

There is something appealing about a loose-fitting caftan dress. With the right draping, it’s easy, flattering, and quite honestly forgiving. I love the look of white in the Fall and Winter and this Zero + Maria Cornejo dress is one of my favorites with a pointed hemline and crepe fabric. Riller & Fount’s Sebastian dress is a very close look-a-like made of micro modal and spandex (along with a lighter price tag).   Continue reading “High Low Simple Chic Outfit”

While attending a family wedding, I heard the most beautiful toast to the bride and groom from the bride’s brother. Their father had passed away about a year before and the brother (man of honor) did a magnificent job of channeling his spirit and humor through the speech. One of their father’s words of wisdom on marriage was to always insist on buying jewelry for your wife when on vacation.   Continue reading “Jewelry Makes The Best Souvenirs”

Easy DIY: Repurposed Necklaces

SEE LARK! | Easy DIY: Repurposed Necklaces

With access to many affordable options, jewelry can easily pile up and become quickly forgotten.  I found a set of layered faux pearls in my closet that I wanted to put back into rotation but with a twist. I decided to pair it with another favorite, yet seldom worn, Pac-Man necklace that I received as a gift from my husband when we were dating. Together, I repurposed two necklaces to create one new edgy, yet feminine statement piece.  Here’s how. Continue reading “Easy DIY: Repurposed Necklaces”

The Unapologetic Splurge List

SEE LARK! | The Unapologetic Splurge List

Often times wish lists are compiled of items that we would like to purchase or would like for others to buy for us on special occasions. I thought I would do a play on the wish list and curate items that are breathtaking and unequivocally extravagant. Now, I am not advocating we break the bank. The intent to allow oneself to dream and to not let the price tag constrain the imagination, hence the Unapologetic Splurge List.

First there was the statement necklace, then the statement ring, and now I find myself obsessed with the statement earring.
