Making a Statement in Snakeskin

Monday, December 03, 2018

           Snakeskin is a print that you either love or hate.  I used to be one of those who hated it.  Yes, it's true, and here I am wearing it loud and proud here on Elizabeth, Marie, and Me.  Like tastebuds, I guess my taste in clothing and accessories have evolved over time.  Like my last outfit post, I styled this one with a bit of vintage.    

        For this look, I went for a bit of the 70s vibes.  I know, I know, enough of the bell bottoms already, but I just love this studded pair from Rachel Roy.  And for the top, I selected a vintage silk brown button-down blouse.  They say pairing brown and black is a fashion no-no, but what can I say, I'm a rule breaker.  Okay, getting back to the star of the show: this snakeskin jacket.  Besides the print, the yellow hues are stand-out amazing, right?  This is not usually a print I gravitate towards, but I knew it was special the moment I saw it.  This jacket is not one that I will wear every day, but I can see myself wearing it for years to come.        

          To doll up this look, I chose the gold "LOVE" and "DREAM" earrings that I styled in my outfit post, Stopping to Smell the Flowers.  Since a matching bracelet was necessary to complete the look, I chose a gold link bracelet to play along with the other sparkly accessories.  Lastly, I popped on my petite brown purse and slid on my favorite aviator sunglasses. 

         Yes, this outfit is not everyone's cup of tea, but this one has become one of my favorites.  Let me know in the comments below what you think!  Yay or nay to the snakeskin?  As always, my fashionistas, I am sending you lots of love from my heart to yours!

    1. Thank you so much, Lexi, for taking the time to comment and stop by my blog!


  2. To those who say "enough with the bell bottoms/flares," I say- at least these are different and more refreshing from skinny jeans/pants. I surely love flares and wide legs, so bring 'em on! This jacket is great! I also like the blouse, jeans, and peep-toe platforms here. The earrings are a bit too much for me, but I do love the outfit as a whole. So well styled on this one, Kristen!

    1. You are so sweet, John! Thank you so much! By the way, I loved your blog post on dresses, skirts, and heels for men. It was very interesting!
