Look of the Day- When Summer Meets Autumn

Look of the Day

1) Carla Crossbody available at Banana Republic- $69.50 $52
2) Finn Tank available at Anthropologie- $98
4) 1969 High-Rise Skinny Skimmer Jeans available at Gap- $69.95
5) Snakeskin Pattern Leather Pumps available at Zara- $119

Not that I'm complaining...but we haven't really had much summer weather yet. So when it comes to deciding what to wear, I've been so clueless lately. The middle of the day is in the low 80s...but the evenings have been in the low 60s. What to wear, what to wear!?!?! I don't know about you all, but the crisp evenings makes me want to start breaking out some autumn inspired looks. A perfect way to do this is simply with colors. Mixing light denim (super summery) with some navy pumps (hello autumn!) is a great way to transition and get ready for my favorite season. Fall just never really lasts long enough, does it? *sigh*

*Snapshot Fashion on Instagram*

Just as quick as Monday came around, it's already over. Thank goodness! I don't know about you, but Monday's are my busiest day of the week. Especially since I had off last Friday...I was playing catch up today. Looks like I'll be doing the same thing next week since I have this Friday off too (not that I'm complaining! Hooray for Summer Fridays!!!). 

I'm definitely looking forward to this weekend though. I might be hanging out with a friend on Friday and going back to my most favorite Chinese restaurant ever...Saturday is my 6 year wedding anniversary and we're planning on celebrating at Public (just like we did last year)...and Sunday afternoon I get to meet 1/2 of Asian Cajuns since Lar will be in town!!!

Until I start counting down the days to an awesome weekend, let me recap this past week.

I love my dog. I love Pimm's cup. And I really love dog friendly bars (so does my dog).

This picture is one of my favorite photos I have ever taken on my phone. Rocko loves hanging out by the waterfront. It's so peaceful to him.

This was an insanely early dinner at Allswell. Love this place. Love their wallpaper.

NEWSFLASH: I wore pants last week. That never happens. Halfway through the day I remember why...pants never fit me right. Give me my dresses and skirts any day!

If you aren't following me on Instagram yet, please do.

Back In Black

Well hello Saturday! A sunny and beautiful Saturday at that. After all of the rain, storms, and humidity we have been having lately, today's weather is a lovely change of pace. I've already been out and about quite a bit already this morning. Gotta take advantage of the sunshine while I can.

romper- Express/ necklace- gift/ sandals- Express/ bangles- vintage

The other week I bought this adorable romper and I can't get enough of it. I'm not really a shorts and tee shirt kind of girl, and wear dresses and skirts constantly. But since we live near the river it is always so breezy in our neighborhood and I'm always holding down my dress while walking around to avoid a wardrobe malfunction. It's so frustrating. A romper really is a perfect solution to this issue. The look of a dress, with the convenience of shorts. Love it!

I'm beyond excited for the rest of the plans I have today. This afternoon we're bringing Rocko to a dog party at Artists & Fleas. He'll love it (I hope)! Then tonight we're meeting up with some friends and going to see two Guns & Roses tribute bands battle it out at Brooklyn Bowl. Can I just say that this show is going to be amazing. Seriously.

I hope you all are having a great Saturday and a fantastic holiday weekend!!!
