Snake Charmers

Max, my four year old, has developed an interest in snakes that is bordering on OCD. He has this snake book- not a beginner's, illustrated, snakes-are-our-friends book, but a legit, hundred-plus page, snakes-with-small-mammals-hanging-out-of-their-mouths kind of book, and my little genius can name literally every single one of them (calabar ground boa, reticulated python, monocled cobra- you get the picture). Initially, I was concerned that he was turning into that creepy reptile kid (you know the one), but, being the supportive mom that I am, I've decided to embrace & encourage his passion and what better way to do so than to show a little love for the limbless ones myself with a few snake-inspired additions to my wardrobe??

I had this hideous sheer snakeprint top in college that saw more than a few bathroom floors, I'm sure, so I was hoping to find some items that said "snake" in a slightly less obvious way and I think some of these goodies really hit the mark! There are definitely some "lusts" in here- but I made sure to include a few "musts" as well! enjoy...
