Black + White

Jacket: H&M (old, similar/similar)|Bag: Phillip Lim for Target (save/splurge)|
Dress: Target|Booties: Forever 21 (save/save/splurge/splurge)

HAPPY HALLOWEEN!
Black and white is always my go to color combination. I always tend to gravitate toward neutral hues with interesting shapes and textures. I love this H&M jacket that I got in New York City ~2 years ago. It has such a fun 80's feel to it!
Let me know what you think!

Fall for Tribal

Sweater: Windsor (similar) (also love)|Leggings: American Apparel|
Tanks: J. Crew (old, similar) & Target (old, similar)|Boots: Ugg Australia|Bag: Phillip Lim for Target (similar)

It was love at first sight when I saw this amazing sweater from Windsor. With its tribal print, chunky knit, and over-sized fit, I just couldn't pass it up! I absolutely love its shape which pairs perfectly with leggings, leather pants, or skinny jeans to make the perfect, cozy fall look! Let me know what you think!

Three Ways to Wear: Ankle Booties

Top: Wildfox Couture via. Bevello (on sale here OR sweater version)|Skirt: Windsor (similar)|
Booties: Vince Camuto Alexia (old, similar)|Bag: Rebecca Minkoff Mini Mac|
Bracelet: NYC Street Vendor (similar)|Ring: Etsy (similar)|Nails: Essie Fiji

Obviously ankle booties are a huge trend right now (well more like a wardrobe staple that is getting a lot of attention). I can't get enough of them... black with gold details... soft brown leather with a chunky heel... flat with muted grey suede... sigh. Here are three past looks from The Style Storm wearing my favorite ankle booties. Also, currently love these three: Holden by Vince Camuto & Everly by Jeffery Campbell & Petty by Sam Edelman.
Let me know what you think! Have an amazing weekend!

On Repeat... Leopard

 Cardigan: Loft Outlet (recent, similar)|Dress: Target|
Bag: Phillip Lim for Target (similar)|Wedges: Forever 21 (save/save/splurge/splurge) 

I borrowed this amazing leopard print cardigan from my sister again! It is the perfect light-weight knit for this transitional weather and it really transforms a casual dress into a fun look! {It still hasn't cooled off here enough to wear chunky knits, skinny jeans, scarfs, boots... mmm... but it is getting there... hopefully in the next week or two... I can't wait!} 
Let me know what you think!
