High Low Simple Chic Outfit

SEE LARK! | Simple Chic Outfit

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”

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”

I love Tom Binns for his statement necklaces, particularly ones with a mix of sparkle, metal, and pearls.

Seeing that I wasn’t ready to spend $700-$100+ on a necklace, I spent a snowy weekend DIY-ing.

Jewelry trends come and go; therefore, I get a little cagey about spending too much on the latest shiny sparkly.  Thanks to places like Bauble Bar, of-the-moment pieces are affordable and dare I say, reinventable?  Is that even a word?!  Lately, I have taken a liking to all-black jewelry.  Uncertain with how I often I would wear this look, I decided to DIY by experimenting on an existing necklace.

Same But Different: Necklaces

Does anyone else get chills when they see that J. Crew “Extra 30% off sale items” or “Take 25% off new arrivals” email in their inbox?! Well, I do and while I try to refrain from clicking on the link, I inevitably give in and peruse the latest sales, new arrivals, and everything in between.

Bling It On

As you have seen in previous posts (here and here), I love all things that sparkle (aka “bling”). I have gradually gotten bolder and incorporated more bling into my wardrobe through sequins, large statement jewelry, and accessories. Here are my favorite sparkly things for the Fall and Winter.
