a lobster in the city

sunday morning's should be spent hunting for vintage books at a street fair in soho, and sunday afternoon's are for enjoying lobster grilled cheese on a stoop with your frenchie.
vintage books have become my newest obsession, so when I heard one of my favorite city thrift shops was hosting a street book fair in soho, I couldn't resist! I mean who can say no to coffee table books for $1!

 i'm a sucker for a summer suit, so when i found this printed peplum and the matching shorts, i had to suit up!

this dress

excuse me, while i show off the newest addition to my closet...
this dress isn't my usual shape (i'm mostly a fit and flair kind of girl) but i had to make an exception for this beauty. i'm crazy about the color blocking and the sparkle collar is the final finishing touch.

tomato, tomahto

 i'm not too fond of tomatoes to snack on but have no problem looking to this vibrate veggie (it's technically a fruit, but i can't quite commit to calling it one) for outfit inspiration!

tomato red is a bold color choice, but pairing it with a contrasting color opposite of red on the color-wheel can give it an extra pop! and finishing with black & white takes the look to another level.
