Sophisticated Snakeskin

Living in Ireland, it can often be cold or chilly no matter what time of year so different styles of blazers and small jackets can be quite handy, especially as I'm nearly always cold when everyone else isn't! This snakeskin patterned one is perfect for that reason.



These wooden heeled shoes I actually got a good while ago. I wore them once. They were so painful that I didn't wear them again for a long time. I couldn't bring myself to wear them or give them away so I wore them around the house a few times for short periods of time and now I've finally worn them in so that they don't hurt. The test really came when I wore them the other night and I'm glad to say they passed the test; no pain! I can't wait to wear them again now.


Here's a bit of a close up. You may not see from a distance but the white blouse has pretty detail near the top. The detail and the varied length, with it being longer at the back was what had drawn me to this blouse. The first time I wore it I actually got a hole in it with a long necklace I was wearing. I was a little heartbroken I must say. However, I saw it again a few weeks later in the sale, so can you guess what I done next? Yes, I bought it again! 



So have you guys ever bought the same item twice, or am I alone in that act of madness? 

Snakeskin blazer (H&M), Blouse (Miss Selfridge), Pants (Topshop), Shoes (Barretts)
