Tough Girl...










Leather Jacket: Topshop|Tee: Target|Leggings: Forever 21|Booties: Forever 21(old, save/similar/splurge/love)|Nails: OPI "Alpine Snow"|Hair Extensions: Bellami Bellissima 220g 22" Chocolate Brown (code Storm5 for $5 off!)

Happy Monday! I am sorry for being so MIA! Life has just been very busy lately, but really good at the same time. I decided a while back to make a serious effort to live more in the moment. Along with that I have been trying to not worry if I don't capture the perfect outfit photo while I'm out an about with family/friends. But with that being said, I have missed this blog and this community and I want to start posting more often... so stay tuned! :)

 Today's look is from a few weekends back when my sister and I went to NYC for a girls weekend. I have been searching for a leather jacket for a few years but could never find an affordable one that looked expensive. I was exploring the triple decker Topshop store in Soho when I came across this jacket and I knew it was the perfect combination. I love the moto detailing, the semi-cropped fit, and the price point was on point! Thank you so much for sticking with me and stopping by today! Be sure to let me know what you think in the comments below! Have a great start to your week!

SUMMER ---> FALL TRANSITION

Fall Look: Dress: Altar'd State (very similar/similar/similar/love)|Cardigan: American Eagle (old, similar/similar/love)|Bag: Francesca's (similar/splurge/love/dream)|Shoes: Old Navy (similar/similar/similar/love)|Belt: Target||Nails: OPI "Alpine Snow"|Hair Extensions: Bellami Bellissima 220g 22" Chocolate Brown (code Storm5 for $5 off!)

Happy Fall! I can't believe it is finally here! Just to be #basic for a minute... fall is my absolute favorite time of year. The crispness in the air, the beautiful leaves changing, and of course #sweaterweather. Since temps are still hanging out pretty high here in the south, I thought I would show you how I transitioned one of my favorite white dresses from a hot summer day to a cool fall morning without adding too many (unrealistic) layers. It's really as simple as throwing on a light weight knit cardigan and changing up the accessories from bright summer bohemian inspired pieces to a more neutral and conservative color pallet. Thank you so much for stopping by and as always be sure to let me know what you think! I hope you have a beautiful first day of fall!

THE STYLE STORM RE-LAUNCH


Good morning! I am so excited today to be back to on the blog with a brand new layout and a fresh new perspective on blogging. I am so sorry for being MIA the past month. I took an unintentional break from blogging that ended up being really good for me.  I found myself getting caught up in the comparisons that can come with having a blog or being on any social media outlet for that matter. I would find myself stressing out about not having the best layout/image quality/ or growth. But I have realized, that is not why I started this blog in the first place! I started this blog as a creative outlet to feel inspired and share personal style posts to showcase looks that I don't always get to showcase in my day to day life. The past month I have really been focusing on living in the moment and part of that was not stressing if I couldn't get blog photos shot that week. With that being said, what I also learned with this month long break was I do love blogging, and fashion, and personal style, and being a part of this inspirational community. I have missed it, and you all, so much. #realtalk. Sorry for getting so deep for a minute... So today, I am re-committing to The Style Storm. I am so excited to share with you my personal style as well as home decor and fashion inspirations. Thank you so much to all of you who follow along, it means so much to me. For those of you who are new, welcome, I am so glad that you are here! Stay tuned for new posts starting tomorrow!
