Beautiful Disaster

Rodeo Show lace dress and leather skirt, Cameo floral bomber, Jeffrey Campbell crochet litas, Michael Kors watch

The days are getting shorter and the nights colder; I can safely say now that Autumn is finally here. Possibly the most wondrous part about this time of year, is how leaves turn into beautiful warm shades of red, orange and yellow. That fascinates me. It was raining on and off the morning we shot this, leaving a cold tinge in the air, yet something quietly refreshing - you know that feeling of stepping outside just after it rains? I love how this outfit comes together - the ever so romantic juxtaposition of lace and leather, and the added interest of this semi-sheer bomber. (I did warn you about my growing attraction to bomber jackets, didn't I?) The song Beautiful Disaster has also been playing in my head as I write this and for some reason seems weirdly fitting - I blame that on my recent evenings spent with The Voice.
