Comfortable In My Own (Snake) Skin

Snake print is hot in a big way this season.

I have had my eye on different snake print dresses but none caught my eye more than this dress dress from H&M.  Obviously for it's price...$14.95!

(belt not included)

Despite having a fabulous price, this dress is insanely comfortable.  Mainly because it is jersey and has an elasticized waist with flared skirt.  It was sort of like wearing a nightgown but more workplace appropriate. And hopefully stylish.

A couple words of note...I wore a black turtleneck underneath and this dress definitely needs a belt.  I wore this belt that I bought at Gap last Summer but the "The Most Amazing Belt Ever" would work too.  Last, this dress comes in 6 colors so if snakeskin print is not your thing, you can always go with a solid.

I kept the rest of my outfit simple as to maintain the comfort: black leggings, simple jewelry and my new low-heeled slouchy black boots.

Despite being insanely comfortable in my super affordable dress, I added one of my favorite eye shadows as the cherry on top.

This shadow was the perfect compliment to the earthy tones of my ensemble.  I do an all-over neutral wash and use the Black Cocoa as a liner.  It gives me a smokey look without being too over the top for daytime wear.  The dark brown, chocolate-y metallic brings depth and brightness but is still soft...and a little sultry.  Hands down Black Cocoa is one of my favorite Bobbi shades.

These are my favorite types of outfits: simple, stylish and comfortable.

And super affordable.
