Keep It Simple

I'm all about keeping my looks simple. But simple doesn't have to mean boring! Adding in a piece that is interesting makes the world of difference.

Take this look for instance. Super simple "S"ummer uniform: sunglasses, sundress, and sandals. But I think we can all agree this isn't boring. The sunglasses are cat eyed, the sundress has ruffles and cutout details, and the sandals are studded.

I also think it is important to add in a pop of color to a pretty basic black outfit...or really any monochromatic looking outfit no matter what that color might be. Pops of color just make a look seem that much more interesting. Sometimes I personally find this difficult as I really do love to wear all black all the time.

How do you like to jazz up a simple look?

Springtime in the City

Are you guys ready? Snapshot Fashion is getting back in the habit of posting outfit photos. Every year when winter hits I kind of like to hibernate...but now spring has sprung and I'm getting outdoors to shoot some fun looks!

A cute skirt, pair of fun shoes, some sunglasses, and denim jacket always looks super adorable in my eyes. So simple, yet so perfect. It really is a look anyone can pull off.

I actually really, really love this outfit. Sometimes I get so shy about wearing these bold pink metallic booties, but they work so well with this skirt! Even the cashier at Starbucks told me, "your outfit is life." Sometimes I really love the people. Even though they were out of matcha and I left there empty handed, his compliment made my day.

Also, that wind is really not my friend when I'm wearing a circle skirt like this. Yikes!

Canadian Tuxedo

Happy weekend everyone! If you're like me you are spending the majority of the day out enjoying this sunshine and warm weather while sneezing your brains out (ugh the allergies are hurting me!). This morning I went for a nice long walk throughout Greenpoint with Chris and Rocko before the neighborhood got too overly crowded on this fine Saturday.

Dressed in my finest denim pairing, don't ya think? I don't think I've worn a Canadian Tuxedo since I have 10 years old...but I kind of love this. I just picked up this denim jacket from Zara the other day. The distressed seams are my favorite part of this piece!

Have a great weekend! Get out there and enjoy the weather...because it's just downhill tomorrow.

Womp womp!

Year Round Wardrobe

There is nothing I hate more than hearing how people put away their spring and summer clothing when the temperature starts to decline. Adding layers to looks makes them wearable all year long! Throw on a turtleneck under your sundress. Pop on some tights under your denim shorts. Wear a cardigan over anything! Adding some layers to your looks will help your closet grow without shelling out a ton of cash.

So I know what you're saying, "this outfit looks familiar!" Well, that's because you may remember it from this past summer. I wanted to show you how I transitioned one of my favorite summer looks to be cool weather appropriate.

Step 1- Layer over fleece lined tights.

My favorite pair is this one I'm wearing from LOFT. Sometimes fleece lined tights can feel a little bulky. These do not. They feel super slim, yet as warm and comfortable as sweatpants.

Step 2- Add your favorite cardigan.

I love wearing thin layers like this. A tissue thin tank top paired with this thin (and ever so soft) cardigan is a perfect combo in my mind. Warm and cozy without being too hot.

Step 3- Finish the look with your favorite boot.

I love this look with a casual and slightly edgy bootie. The buckles add a little extra flavor to a very simple look.

Do you ever transition your warm weather looks for cooler temperatures?

Lusting for Leather

A little bit of leather goes a long way. Don't you agree?

I have to say, I'm kind of obsessed with this dress. It's the perfect little black dress to wear to work or an event.I love the chain neckline detail too. This little added touch is great because you don't have to worry about adding any jewelry.
