Auburn Is The New Black


I'm always up for a change. I started to feel like I was in a rut with my hair over the last few weeks and knew that I had to do something. Not wanting to cut it, I decided to change up my color! 


On Saturday I went to my favorite hair salon to switch up my look. After coming across some amazing auburn looks on Pinterest (and obsessing over Lily Collins hair) I decided that adding some auburn highlights to my hair and making a richer brown was the way to go...and I love it!!! I'm all about subtle changes.


What are your thoughts on my new auburn look?

She & Him


So today is a big day. My husband (Chris) is making his first official appearance in an outfit post. He's been seen on the blog here and there over the years, and is all over my instagram feed. Typically he's behind the scenes taking my photos...but I thought it would be fun to bring him into the mix of Snapshot Fashion's style posts.

shirt: Brooklyn Industries (similar)/jeans: Levi's/leather jacket: Levi's/boots: Dr. Martens

I think this is my new favorite dress. It's so light and comfy...and isn't the print just lovely?!


One thing the two of us agree on is that we love Brooklyn Industries. Even though about 1/4 of my wardrobe is probably from that store, I think it would be safe to say the same for my husband. 


If you are loving these looks be sure to stop by Brooklyn Industries today where they are having a mega sale. They are taking an extra 40% off of sale styles and 25% off of full price graphic tees and bags. The sale is online and in the store...but it ends today, so don't wait!


So everyone please give Chris a warm welcome...as I'm sure you'll be seeing much more of him on Snapshot Fashion in the future.

72nd Golden Globes Awards- What I Hope They Wear

The Golden Globes are on tomorrow...andI can't wait. You all know my favorite thing about awards shows is the fashion. I mean isn't that what everyone tunes in for anyway? I have no idea who will win as most of the shows nominated I don't watch, and I have only seen a couple of the movies...so I'll stick with judging what celebrities wear while walking down the red carpet.

I always put together a list of what I hope they will wear...so here goes:

Jennifer Aniston in Zac Posen Pre-Fall 2015

Keira Knightley in Valentino Spring 2015 RTW

Emma Stone in Zac Posen Pre-Fall 2015

Lupita Nyong'o in Oscar de la Renta Pre-Fall 2015


Will you be watching???
