Interplanet Janet

Nothing makes me smile more than a colorful and fun print like this adorable space themed dress. Stars, astronauts, rocket, planets…what’s not to love?

Add on a teddy bear coat and a headband and you got yourself a look!

This dress also reminds me of one of my favorite songs from Schoolhouse Rock, Interplanet Janet:

Interplanet Janet , she’s a galaxy girl,

A solar system Ms. from a future world,

She travels like a rocket with her comet team

And there’s never been a planet Janet hasn’t seen,

No, there’s never been a planet Janet hasn’t seen.

I hope you all enjoy your weekend and it’s out of this world! :-)

Extra Long Weekend Means Extra Fun

Super excited to enjoy my long weekend before my new job starts on Wednesday. I plan on enjoying coffee dates with friends, meeting up some of my favorite blogger pals for lunch, taking advantage of some seriously amazing President’s Day sales, and spending some quality time with Chris & Rocko. Doesn’t get much better than that…am I right?

Adding In Some Color

It's so very rare that I'm not wearing black in one way or another. But I managed to put together an entire look with no black (and no brown or navy either!).  I've added in pops of rather neutral colors to add some warmth to my outfit. Let's break it down...

The Dress: I decided to wear a dress that is a rather neutral color, a deep green. In certain light it almost looks navy. The green paired with gold, white, and burgundy brush strokes makes it seem colorful and fun without being too bold or over the top. Hey, baby steps!

The Coat: Wearing a coat that's color is as soft as the texture (I mean who doesn't love teddy bear coats?!?!) it a double winner in my book. This very light pink coat also pairs so well with the red tones from the burgundy.

The Shoes: Who wants to wear boring black or brown shoes when you have the option of metallic? I love the way these gold loafers pair with the gold buttons and gold flecks of color on the dress.

The Tights: Lastly, we need to talk about legwear. Personally, I live for tights! I feel that they finish every outfit off...and depending on the color and style can really change an outfit completely. I paired this dress with some more burgundy...because, well why not?!

I want to know how you incorporate color into your everyday looks. Are you subtle about it? Do you go bright and bold? Do you not wear color at all?

Let It Snow!

So this morning my husband and I decided to go outside and take some photos but Mother Nature was not going to cooperate with us. It started snowing (which I hate)...but I decided to grin and bear it because I had to show you all this fun outfit! Oh the things I do for you guys!

With it almost being New Year's Eve, I thought I would do my own little countdown of my ten best moments of 2017.

10. Having our nephew spend some time with us this summer. It was fun seeing the city through his eyes...not to mention every single public bathroom NYC has to offer.

9. Discovering a bunch of new food, restaurants, and bars in the city. You think that we've been here long enough that there are very few things we can try that are new and exciting to us. Jaded New Yorkers...that we are. But This year I tried kimbab (or as some say kimbap, gimbap, or kimbob), found a hidden pinball bar behind a secret door in a laundromat, drank a deconstructed latte, and perfected making my avocado toast.

8. Finally seeing Wicked on Broadway! Yeah, I know I'm like the last person to see this show...but it was perfect and such a great birthday present from my sweetie.

7. Cheering on one of my dear friends as she ran the NYC Marathon. Such an amazing accomplishment for her...and I have to say, our cheer section was pretty epic.

6. Taking part in the Women's March in NYC. I almost didn't attend since I'm not really a fan of crowds, but this was one of the most meaningful experiences I ever had.

5. This might not seem like a best moment to some...but when I healed from my burst appendix. The fact that my body was able to be strong enough to deal with my appendix literally bursting off (they can't even find it now) and not even needing surgery is pretty amazing. I overcame something that could have easily killed me, and now I'm on a mission to keep my body even stronger and healthier than ever.

4. A fantastic trip to Montreal. Even though the weather was terrible we had a great time in that city. Not only did we eat some of the best food ever there (if you're going I can tell you an place for delicious fried chicken), we also saw an awesome show that Franz Ferdinand put on. It was probably one of my favorite concert experiences I have ever had.

3. NYFW F/W 2017 and NYFW S/S 2018. So many shows, so many parties, and great times with friends. I cannot wait for February to roll around so I can do it all over again!

2. My trip to Spain. We had such a wonderful time in Granada and Barcelona, and I cannot wait to go back some day. We had the best food and saw the most beautiful architecture. These memories will live with me forever.

1. Responding to all the sweet comments, kind emails, and encouraging messages from my readers! You guys are all so awesome and make me want to keep putting my all into Snapshot Fashion. I appreciate how you've all hung in there over my slow posts the last couple months...and to all of you that have been with me since this blogging journey started nine and a half years ago! xoxo

What were your best moments of 2017?
