inspiration -- bordeaux.


COVETING: Milly Raquelle Flare Skirt
www.shopbop.com; $290
I love mini skirts with tights for fall, but it's so rare that I hunt one down that's just the right length and shape and has enough weight to pass as a cool-weather piece.  This pretty little Milly piece does it all, and in a fantastic color to boot.  I love the cobalt shade, and the incredibly flattering black colorblocking works in perfect harmony with the side pleats to create a gorgeous shape.  Perfect with a crisp button-down, opaque tights, and a killer pair of pumps.

 While I'm always enamored by deep, rich tones come autumn, I'm particularly in love with wine shades this year.  Perhaps it's that the trees outside my apartment windows are covered in leaves in this exact shade or that it's popping up everywhere in fall decorations, but I find myself noticing it more than ever.  From my fingernails to my riding boots, I want to be totally decked out in this perfect shade all autumn.

inspiration -- bordeaux.
