inspiration -- smoke.

 
ATTAINABLE: 213 Industry Jessica Blocked Skirt
www.piperlime.com; $89 
I'm crazy for this adorable little 213 Industry skirt.  It's chic yet flirty, polished yet fun.  I love the pretty touches of leather at the waist and hem and am completely obsessed with the soft pleats that fall from the waistband.  This is such a chic way to bring a touch of luxe to your look, whether it be paired with a crisp button-down and pumps or a sparkly top, opaque tights, and booties.

There's something about smoke that I find so lovely and inspiring right now.  The way that it lifts up from bonfires and curls and twirls through the air, tendrils stretching toward the sky.  It feels so warm and perfect and autumn-esque.  I'm particularly enamored by the movement, that flow, and of course the color -- from pale grays to deep charcoals, I can't wait to incorporate this motif into my fall wardrobe.

inspiration -- smoke.



What's inspiring YOU today?

Oh, how I love leather accents and grays! That skirt is fab.. the perfect mix of dominatrix and innocence. A nice investment, too, since leather will be everywhere next spring too!

Can I just say, that skirt is so pretty! I am actually on the hunt for one more flouncy fuller skirt. I have an olive toned one that is the perfect length (just above the knee with the right amount of thigh hint..). I use it so much that I think one in a contrasting color would full a gap for me!

I'll have to check out that NARS color.. It looks so dramatic!

I love it because it's just as neutral as black! In fact, I'm having a really hard time deciding if I should get a rebecca minkoff mini mac in charcoal, smoke, or black! Hmmm...
