I Wore: Simple Snakeskin

6 November 2011

Good Morning!

It's unusual for me to be posting on a Sunday morning, okay, I lie, early afternoon. It feels like morning to me since I rarely manage to motivate myself to post anytime before 8pm on a Sunday. I've been sick all week but finally feel like I'm almost well again. It's given me a new lease of life. I actually felt well enough to go out to dinner last night with my boyfriend; getting dressed up always helps make me feel better. Snakeskin print is a big trend of this fall. It's in a lot of the shops and I've seen a lot of celebrities wearing it. Although I'm not brave enough to do head to toe snakeskin like the celebs I picked up a cute snakeskin dress a couple of weeks ago. 

Snakeskin Print Dress - H&M
Vintage Black Clutch with Gold Chain Detail - Stuart Weitzman

Black Patent Shoe Boots - Moda In Pele
Gold Cuff Bracelet - F21. Ring - Accessorize. Gold Pendant - Vivienne Westwood.

Since the snakeskin is such a statement print I let that do the talking and kept the rest of my outfit simple. Black leggings, black shoe boots and my absolute favorite vintage clutch bag.

The weather here yesterday was unseasonably warm so we headed to a great restaurant we love that has an open air courtyard you can dine in. I think it's possibly one of the prettiest restaurants I've eaten in. The food is incredible too. It serves a course menu comprising seven courses. I only took three photos because I was too busy enjoying the evening (and eating all those courses) to remember to photo them all, sorry!

Although the weather was mild and the courtyard is heated I still took my snuggliest knit to keep myself warm. Don't want to catch a cold now that I'm almost better do I!! I picked it up in Mango last week. I'll do a post that you can see it clearly in soon (it totally deserves full recognition, it's so cozy). Also, isn't the entrance to the restaurant pretty, very romantic, I love it.

Today I'm venturing out for brunch and possibly a cupcake and coffee later, I'm so addicted, it's bad!
I hope everyone has a wonderful Sunday!

  5. @ Celia, Really enjoyed my cupcake. Glad you like the outfit :)

    @Essjay23x, thanks, I love this outfit a lot :) Read your post, envious of your bonfire night, it sounded perfect!

    @Lauren Ashleigh, I seem to be really into prints at the moment, wasn't before. But I think you're right, they're more suited to winter, not sure why that is though?!!

  6. lovely outfit, nice clutch!

  7. I don't have leggings that go under the feet, but in your pictures it seems that they work really well with the boots. Great outfit, I am into all animal prints lately too!

  8. I love al your outfit! The dress is amazing!

  9. You look absolutely stunning! I think snakeskin, or any animal print actually, can be a bit OTT when not done properly but you've styled it incredibly! Keeping everything else simple.

    The restaurant sounds lovely and seven courses! Wow! Glad you had a great time and are feeling better xxx

    I love this dress a lot, I didn't think snakeskin print was something for me before. I just picked it up to try on as something different. I'm so glad I did! From now on I'm going to try one thing I don't think is my style every time I go shopping. Hopefully I'll get more nice surprises like I did with this dress!

    @Hilary, I let myself have bad things on Sat and Sun. I couldn't stick to just one day! Good for you though, takes a lot of willpower ^^
