Guest Post---Cubicle Chic

I recently asked my blogger friends Meredith and Lindsay from Cubicle Chic about the looks they are loving for fall. They were kind enough to write up this guest post and share their amazing looks with us here at Snapshot Fashion. Thanks so much girls!

When Diane asked us to do a post for Snapshot Fashion that was fall-inspired, I immediately thought of this dress. Its colors and pattern remind me of autumn foliage, possibly seen as a reflection in some body of water... in the mountains... while leaf peeping and drinking hot apple cider... ahhh how I love fall in New England! Because the dress is on the short side, leggings are an obvious choice to make the outfit appropriate for leaving the house. I have a love-hate relationship with leggings, though, because I often feel like some kind of trendy teenage girl when I wear them. So how to make the the outfit come across as more mature? Throw on a pleather jacket, and suddenly I felt like an adult! Worn with my Kelly & Katie sandals (sometimes it’s still just warm enough!), this outfit makes the transition from summer into fall.

Meredith’s Look:

Dress: Forever 21, $12
Jacket: Unknown brand and borrowed from a friend
Belt: came with $40 vintage dress
Shoes: Kelly & Katie, $35
Watch: Vintage, $10
Leggings: Gap


This sweater is definitely a piece I wish I could take out more often. It’s cozy, but not as warm as a conventional sweater robe due to the large “knit” holes; because New Yorkers experience a shortened spring and autumn (when compared with summer and winter), the span of time I have to wear it is extremely limited. This past Columbus Day weekend proved to be the perfect fall weather, though, so I was stoked to take it for a spin. I always forget that it has a hood - one of the most fun things to wear in the fall! It also goes nicely with this top I bought at the start of the summer. The top was a great value because it goes great with jeans, looks stylish with piled-on jewelry and for it’s high comfort factor. The only thing I don’t like about it is how low it goes... once in a while, I have to adjust it to ensure my pretty underthings aren’t showing!

Lindsay’s Look:

Top: H&M, $25 (ish)
Jeans/Jeggings: AG, $85 (on sale)
Boots: Frye, $250 (so worth the investment)
Sweater: Unknown, can’t remember price (bought 4 years ago!)
