Halle Berry delivered yet another standout Instagram moment yesterday. In her latest post, the actress was feeling herself as she posed topless — and while it may not be her only sexy snap as of late, it did inspire in more ways than one.

Walking up a gorgeous brick staircase barefoot, Halle wore nothing but a pair of loose-fitting boyfriend jeans (Van's perhaps?) that were cuffed at the bottom. With her naked back to the camera and a moody sky above, the Oscar-winner looked over her shoulder with her toned arms strategically covering her chest. Her hair was pulled back into a low-slung ponytail and she seemingly wore little-to-no makeup.

Berry's caption was simple but effective, and provided fans with a motivational message for the weekend ahead. "the sky is not the limit, your mind is..," she wrote.

Halle's topless posing came weeks after she fooled the internet (her celebrity friends, included) into thinking that she and boyfriend Van Hunt tied the knot during their recent tropical getaway over the holidays. Though, they may not be technically married, Halle's 8-year-old son Maceo Robert did hold a "commitment ceremony" in the backseat of a car for the couple a couple of months ago.

"This was a ceremony by an 8-year-old in the back seat of the car who said, 'Mom, you should get married to him.' I said, 'Really, I should marry to him?' He said, 'Yeah, I pronounce you man and wife.' So we're like, 'Oh, okay. We're married!' But we're not married," Berry explained during an appearance on Live with Kelly and Ryan. "So that's our commitment ceremony. It's silly. It's sweet."

She elaborated on her son's sweet gesture in the new issue of AARP The Magazine. "I think he finally sees me happy, and it's infectious. It was his way of saying, 'This is good. This makes me happy,'" she said of Maceo, adding: "It was a very real moment for all of us. I teared up, Van was fighting back tears. Even Maceo knew he'd said something poignant. I have two children. Van has a son. As a mom living this modern, blended family, all I care about is that my kids are okay with my decisions."
