StyleInspiration - Falling for Gray

I have been in a bit of a funk recently. This usually happens during those first few days of Fall when Rain makes a reoccurring presence in Boston and the Sun is a rare sight. While my nails remain the coral red color of choice my clothing is more reflective of the gray skies. Lately, the outfit below has been on repeat.

Rag & Bone skinnies, J Crew sweater & Charles Philip Shanghai smoking slippers

Items to be worn:
1. Rag & Bone/JEAN high rise skinnies $180 (image via Shopbop)
2. J Crew Grey wool flecked sweater (borrowed from the boys) $88 (image via JCrew)
3. Charles Philip Shanghai Sheila Peacock leopard smoking slipper $135 (image via NeimanMarcus)

Bonus: I wear it with my Mulberry Fuchsia Alexa to bring more color to the gray days!

QOTD - Robert Kennedy

Whilst in a meeting at the non-profit publisher I work for, I learned a new concept last week. Basically, perception of failure dictates future success. As long as we grow and learn from perceived mistakes or defeats, we succeed. Therefore, that is the motto I am focusing on as I near the corner of a birthday. For more about this concept head over to the SaltyWaffle as they give us the premise behind John C. Maxwell's book Failing Forward.
