Fall is famous for so many things and one of them is chic military inspo.  Those great military inspired looks, complete with structured design and shiny button detailing can elevate an outfit from or ordinary to off the page.  Another thing I just love about this look is the way it so happily marries menswear with feminine touches (think attention to detail and slim, well-fitted silhouettes) to create a unique sense of chic.  This flounced sailor skirt is the perfect example.  I'd love it with a body con black or white turtleneck, this newsboy-like cap and these ankle boots.  So fresh!  I also have my eye on this Isabel Marant striped top and this jacket from Olivia Palermo's Banana Republic collection. (Be sure to check it out!  I've linked and shared a few of my favorite pieces above and below.)  Pops of color round out the overall look and take it to          .

As this post is a nod to my love of our beautiful country on this somber day, I also hope it finds all our friends and loved ones in both Florida and all areas of the southeast safely sheltered as the hurricane proceeds.  My thoughts and prayers are with you all...stay safe!!
