I’m so excited to get to share this with y’all today! I’ll get to the snakeskin skinnies in a moment, but first let me tell you how this all came about.

Afterward we got to hear some great fall fashion tips and trends from Tracy James Robinson.
Isn’t she adorable?! She had some great advice about print mixing and adding texture to your outfit to create interest. She shared a quote which I loved: “Wear your clothes tight enough to show you’re a woman but loose enough to show you’re a lady.”
After the fashion segment we teamed up in groups of 4 for a scavenger hunt around the shops. Luckily Rachel was one of my teammates because she knows The Shops of Grand River like the back of her hand. Here we are finding our clues.
We won the scavenger hunt and got an extra gift card to spend on ourselves. Yay for #TeamFallFashion!
After getting our swag bags which were filled with coupons, Ghiradelli chocolates and a $50 gift card, we all hit up the Shops to see what we could find. I was after the snakeskin printed skinnies that Tracy mentioned she found at Dressbarn, of all places.
I was thrilled to find them, in my size, and for less than $30. Score!
Since one of my favorite things to do when I buy a fun new piece for my wardrobe is to come home and play dress up, I thought it would be fun to show you different ways I would wear them with items I already own. So each day this week I will share a different look with you and I’ll wrap it all up on Friday by offering a $50 gift card to The Shops of Grand River to one random winner. Obviously this giveaway benefits Birmingham area shoppers only, but I hope you’ll check out each day and maybe get inspired to try a new Fall trend.
For the first look I went for a work/office feel and paired the printed skinnies with a blazer, necktie blouse and pumps. I tucked in the blouse to keep it looking polished and added a studded skinny belt.
What do you think? Would you wear this look?
