Snakes on a Jacket

- Outfits
Okay so there really aren’t snakes on this jacket… just snakeskin print. I don’t know, sometimes I just think I’m clever and I laugh like it’s funny.  This happens a lot at home and the bf doesn’t even know where it came from, what I’m thinking or what I mean by it.   It comes from my mother because I act the same way my bf does when she says things sometimes and I usually end up saying “Oh Mom” but I love her, she’s the best!
Anyway, enough blabbing… so I never thought 1) that I would ever end up wearing this jacket to the office… I thought it might be a bit too crazy for the environment I work in and 2) I never thought I would wear a denim dress to the office thinking it is just too casual.  Well,  this outfit just goes to show that you should always push yourself to try more and be more creative with your wardrobe. If it is straight out not appropriate, it just isn’t appropriate, but I think the blend of a plain casual denim dress and the dressy features of my snakeskin jacket magically balance each other out.  Let’s just say I couldn’t resist a double dose of snakeskin and added one of my go-to work shoes to this outfit, as well as an edgy necklace, a buckle belt and watch to keep the balance between work appropriate and fun/crazy. I got a compliment from a co-worker so I’m going to call it a success!

    Snake print is one of the patterns I’ve never been brave enough to wear. I love how you paired yours with chambray–you look great!

      It is unusual! I’m always drawn to those things… I had to have it when I saw it! :) I liked it paired with the denim as well… probably be a go-to for it from now on!

    I think this is an awesome outfit for the office! I definitely agree with you, the snakeskin jacket and denim dress balance each other out for a look that’s casual yet still polished. Loving the double dose of snakeskin, too :)
