Mid Week Muse: Snakeskin

steal // spend // splurge
This week's Mid Week Muse is derived from actual experience.  On Sunday, Josh and I were working in the yard, and I came across a GIANT (he says it was tiny) snake.  Regardless, I jumped about 5 feet into the air and ran inside for the remainder of "yard work" time.  Though I don't love snakes in real life, I do love a good snakeskin print.  So, in honor of my new backyard pet (who I hope never to see again,) I've rounded up my favorite steal, spend, and splurge options snakeskin dresses here.  Not convinced you need some snakeskin? Try saying no to these adorable pants, this cute shift, this ladylike dress, this blous-y dress, and this fitted sheath.

What do you think?  Do you have any snakeskin in your closet?

Now, Morgan and I are excited to share our favorite muse from last week- Natalie from East Coast Chic!

We love Natalie's patriotic looks, and we especially love that she has a look for everyone!  From picnicking and playing to dressed up glam, Natalie's "muses" showcased some of the bet ways to show the USA from love.  And don't forget the little ones - Natalie has some great options for them too.  We're suckers for Jon-Jons, smocking, and those teeny-tiny sandals.
