Daily Covet: Snake in the Pants

Printed pants and jeans are all the rage right now.  And here are another pair of to-die-for pants in a cool and easy-to-wear neutral snake print.

I love the flat front and slim cut.  Wearing them with heels will create a long line, something we all love and most of us need.  My favorite is the chic black trim along the pockets.  It’s almost like there’s a  splash of tuxedo pant thrown in.

And they are reasonably priced too at £32 ($42)!

Valentine’s Brunch

 Tomorrow, I’m having a pre-Valentine’s Day brunch with my best girls.  We picked a great little place, Dario’s Brasserie, for a French-themed morning of Mimosas and amazing French/European cuisine.  What’s more “amour” than French-inspired anything?!

And this is what I’ve chosen to wear.  Red pants (I can’t stop wearing them!), the ever-popular staple – horizontal striped tees, statement-making jewelry in a poppy color and of course, great platform heels for a long and lean line with trouser-style pants.

Daily Covet: Sandals with a Pop

Is there a theme today?  I guess if there was, it would be items that go pop!  But I popped in completely the opposite direction from the disco jeans…

I ran across these adorable sandals today.

Seychelles Snapdragon Heels, modcloth.com $89

While it would be easy to throw them on with a beige linen sundress I have, I went looking for another feminine frock instead.  Something with a little more oomph!  Bring on the very affordable Dorothy Perkins sleeveless dress:

But an outfit isn’t complete without statement-making jewelry and a classic handbag.  So here you go!

Christmas Cocktail Party

This is my favorite holiday get-up!  Fondly enough, it was my husbands too.

He said he thought if you were wearing this dress, you’d look like you were an “interesting” person.  I think he meant that in a good way…

This could definitely take you to your law firm’s Christmas party at the country club.  The rich red-ISH, mixed with gold Asian-inspired jewelry and a fun pop of green satin is sooo holiday ready.  Aaaand green is a Chinese symbol of health, prosperity and harmony… good for ringing in a New Year too!

And let’s be honest who could resist those amazing Gucci ankle straps with the gold piping?  Christmas Cocktail Party
