Snake skin

I actually feel a little guilty for not taking outfit photos again, especially given my past tendencies to not let rain, nor snow, nor dead of night stop me from getting out there with my camera and getting my shots; I guess I've just been beaten down by the rain.

The forecast has changed though, the weekend prediction is no longer a wet one, and I will happily return to chasing my sunsets.

For now, this is what I wore last Monday when I had no power, work got canceled, and I went to the beach.

Oooh, I hear ya, girl---the rain really saps my motivation to take my electronics outside. I say you're doing just fine!

Frannie Pantz said...

Eh, ya win some you loose some. Yesterday was a rainy one here too and I had several issues with my outfit shots. At least with no power, you still managed to look amazing and get good shots! I love this dress on you!

Power outages in the summer are much better than in the winter. At least you have the option of wearing cute and flirty dresses and go to the beach. In the winter you're just forced to huddle up to your nearest and dearest, under a blanket, while wearing sweats.

I love that hammered gold cuff! I feel like I see similar styles in silver often, but not usually in gold. I love it! (And, we're going to have one last lovely beautiful sunny weekend, too! I'm headed to the beach!)

Courtney Erin said...

I love the look of that dress paired with the gold cuff!

I will just reiterate what everyone else has said. That dress is lovely. The flow, the pattern, the material, the length. Perfection.

You are ROCKIN the snakeskin!

Frances Joy said...

Oh, I looooove that dress! And I haven't been blogging because of crap-o weather.

eek said...

You find the best stuff at H&M. Whenever I go there all I seem to see are the cheesy too-short dresses! I need to look you up next time I am in NYC :)

StyleIDnet said...

Adoring this outfit. You did great styling it with the cuff, effortless Chic .... Beautiful.
I LOVE the print of the dress.

I love that the texture on your cuff mimics the snakeskin pattern! You always look so put-together.

Shea said...

Hey the whole "work getting cancelled and going to the beach" thing was one good thing about the power outage, right? I love the allover snake skin pattern of the dress. I have some snakeskin print shoes, but I think I need more!

Lindsay said...

I love the light in these photos and those Aldo sunglasses are fantastic! I need to wear my hair in a braid some time next week. Love it!

NaughtyBaubles said...

Beautiful photos and great dress...love the way you styled it with the cuff and necklace. The weather has been really crappy and I was very fortunate not to lose power during Irene but now that the sun has returned I am under the weather...guess that's just how it goes

WendyB said...

OMG! I need to use a picture of this in a post I'm doing. Email me at wbjewelry at hotmail dot com and I'll tell you more...I'll need a picture without any text on it though.

buttonjar said...

So glad you've got your power back! I still can't believe how you managed to look so cool, collected and fashionable throughout all of that. Love this look for a summer day.

This is a really fun beach look.

Ame said...

hey i wish it was easier to find some of the items you wear to buy. am i missing something or do you not normally link your items to the place we can find them?

Kavery said...

Checked out some of your features. Great reading, Lydia. Love the subtle snake print.

Eli said...

Although it is nice to take a break from taking outfit photos all the time isnt it? :)

This is a very cute outfit for what seems to be your canceled day, loving that cuff!

I am all about animal prints this fall and have been wearing leopard constantly this past week. I do not have any snakeskin though... might be looking around for some!

Not to feed your shopping habit or anything, but ebates is offering 10% back at Gap right now. Just thought you might want to know.
