my very first blog crush and my very favorite skirt

11 August 2016

Way, way, WAY back when I was pregnant with Julia and I had just finished my first and last year of teaching I don't remember how but I stumbled upon Kayla's blog. I didn't know there was such a thing as blog analytics and now that I do I cringe at how she must've scratched her head over how many times a Wichita, Kansas creeper visited her blog. I couldn't help but comb her archives and hope and pray she'd put up a new post that day. I blame my nearly sinful amounts of free time but it was also my first real look at the fascinating world blogging and I was totally hooked. I would be lying if I said my blog wasn't pathetically fashioned after hers in the early days. If then Grace had known that now Grace would be friends (well, I consider us friends - she might consider me a charity case) with Kayla ... she would never have believed it. Ever.

Anyway, I'm not sure that's enough back story. I can go on! I won't - but I could. The bottom line is that I've been a huge Kayla fan for a long time. Some of my favorite posts she did were her sewing projects (and if you've read far back enough you know that I predictably copied that hobby of hers as well) because she's really talented and has a unique eye for liveable but on trend fashion.

So, you can imagine my excitement when she told me she was starting a skirt company because I knew that she'd design some really great skirts ... which SHE DID.

Allow me to show you ...

Lark Skirt's first collection is so fun and pretty and well thought out because all of the skirts have nice deep pockets (hello phone/key storage), are lightweight but not see through (this is huge), and are a really great length.


The back of the waistband is elastic so it's really comfortable while the front has a nice clean and tailored look. 


While of course anyone can wear a Lark Skirt, Kayla is a mom and she designed the skirt with moms in mind: prints that hide grubby hand prints, a play-friendly length, and all breathable cotton that is comfortable even in the most hot and humid of climates.

I'm wearing the blue buffalo check but I think my close second favorite would be the green floral.


All of her skirts are handmade and have the option of either patch or inset pockets (mine are inset - if that isn't obvious) and they are all (I don't use this word often or lightly) fabulous.

Kayla is VERY generously giving a skirt of your choice away to one lucky reader ... just follow the Rafflecopter instructions and I'll bide you farewell and best of LUCK!!!

  13. I totally get what you're saying about having your "first blog crush" before figuring out analytics... I'm sure I creeped out a couple people in the beginning too ha ha. I love the shirts! The white floral is probably my fave but I could probably make the feather skirt work more with what I already have... you get it ;)
