Solid Snake

It was a busy, triple-points day on the job, so I was happy to wear something comfy, cool, and easy. Not exactly the super-soldier spy of the Metal Gear video game series (Solid Snake), but the snake theme did make me feel sort of "solid" in a geared-up and ready-to-go way. 

I sure am glad I kept these pieces - I don't feel like this outfit is the height of creativity, but it is easy and breezy and feels like me. Who says every outfit has to be work? Sometimes a gal needs some effortlessness in life. :)

Snake dress - Rack
Gibson blazer - Rack
Report Marks - Amazon
Snake necklace - gift from a friend

    I think it is brilliant! Booties and snake patter really make it.
    And I am envious of your sunny and warm weather...

    You look amazingly on trend, I'd shop with you. I went overboard myself and I may have to return some sandals. :)

    Sometimes I think we put way too much pressure on ourselves to be creative with our outfits. I like to think that easily pulling something together is a testament to how much we have learnt here and how well developed our wardrobes are.  I think this is fabulous Rae.  Simple but interesting and I just love the booties with it.

    Love it all. LOVE.

    The matchy matchy snake dress and snake necklace are just perfect for the Year of the Snake!

    SO fab, Rae. I think you can do nothing wrong, but here you prove that even a simple formula like the dress+blazer+necklace has a little edge to it. I love the pattern and color SO much. YLF!

    So this is perhaps a FFBO?  Love the soft color of the booties!  A fresh change from the expected black.

    This outfit is gorgeous on you Rae - I absolutely adore that dress.

    I think it's easy to try and be too creative, over think things, you know? I'm all for effortless.
