I think I have a thing for snake skin design! Last week for #FashionFriday I modeled a Red Snakeskin Corset Dress and today I’m rocking a Rose Gold Sequin top by Cecio, Gap Skinny Jeans and Taupe Snake Skin Pumps by Qupid. I scored my top from Flaunt Boutique, Jeans from The Gap and the pumps from Perfect Pair. I saw the rose gold top and had to have it in my closet! I think a pair of skinny jeans with the perfect top and pumps is the perfect outfit for almost any occasion. You can dress it up or tone it down!
I love this look because it can be versatile. I sometimes find myself in situations where I need to be either really dressed up or in a casual outfit for a more relaxed atmosphere. I love outfits that allow me to achieve the look I am going for by just adding, changing or taking away a portion of the garment. I can put a blazer on over this top and it would serve as a more business casual look. I can take the blazer off and attend an after work mix and mingle and take it on into the evening by changing the jeans, putting on a skirt and hitting the nightlife scene.
One thing that is super important to me is being able to change gears on the fly! I am in an office most of the day in business casual attire but, in the evenings I attend networking events and business socials. If it’s a Friday or the weekend I may start the day attending a business seminar and as the day goes on attend a concert, have a girls night out, or go on a date with the Mr. I am always on the go and sometimes the events I attend are back to back and I have to be able to make a quick switch that suits the event dress code.
