Happy Halloween...

October Inspired

Denim: Rag & Bone (save/save/similar)|Cardigan: Sheinside (also love this and this)|
Hat: Topshop|Boots: Vince Camuto Kannon (save/similar/love/splurge)|Clutch: Clare V (save/love)

I can't believe October is almost over! This month absolutely flew by! I wanted to create an edgy look inspired by this gorgeous fall month and Halloween without [literally] being a costume. I have been loving chunky knits and distressed denim lately! Add a pop of leopard print and a floppy hat and you have the perfect fall look. I hope everyone has a fun Halloween weekend! Thank you so much for stopping by and be sure to let me know what you think.

Three Ways to Wear: Leather


As the weather cools, I get excited about pulling out some of my favorite [faux] leather pieces from the back of my closet! Here are three ways that I have worn and styled leather- a great dress, a skater skirt, and leather leggings + booties. Thank you so much for stopping by and be sure to let me know which look is your favorite!

Fall Feminine...








Tee: Lou & Grey by Loft (steal/save/similar/love/splurge)|Skirt: ebay (save/similar/love/splurge/dream)|
Booties: Sam Edelman (love/similar/splurge)|Bag: Loft (similar/save/splurge/dream)|

Happy Wednesday! Wow, this week is flying by and I can't believe Halloween is on Friday! Do y'all have any big plans? I don't really have any plans to dress up, but I am still in the festive spirit and loving all of the pumpkin decorations and [of course] the candy! Today's look is a little more on the feminine side- which I love! This tulle skirt has been a staple in my closet and is so fun to try and style it in ways that make it appropriate for everyday wear. I think this striped tee does a great job of dressing down the look and you can never go wrong with a pair of Sam Edelman ankle booties! Thank you so much for stopping by and be sure to let me know what you think!

Mad About Plaid...






Scarf: Forever 21 (currently sold out, other colors/very similar/similar/love)|Jeans: c/o East & Lo|Chambray Top: American Eagle (save/similar/splurge)|Booties: Sam Edelman "Lisle" (similar/love/similar/splurge)|Clutch: H&M (old, save/similar/love/splurge)|Hair Extensions: Bellami Bellissima 220g 22" Chocolate Brown 
(use code Storm5 for $5 off!)

It's clear that the "it" accessory this season is the plaid scarf! Whether you are wearing a dress paired with an oversized cardigan and boots or distressed denim paired with a crisp blazer and ankle booties- it's the perfect fall accessory to tie together any fall look. I love mixing mine with another print (ie. leopard print or stripes). See some of my favorite plaid scarf picks below! Thank you so much for stopping by and be sure to let me know what you think!

Sunday Stripes...

Hair Extensions: Bellami Bellissima 220g 22" Chocolate Brown (use code Storm5 for $5 off!)

Happy Monday! I hope everyone had a great weekend! I wore this look for a casual Sunday afternoon. The weather was beautiful in North Carolina this weekend with highs in the mid 70s. It was nice to get outside and enjoy the changing leaves, but I am ready for cooler temps again or rather... scarfs, oversized cardigans, and booties! Thanks so much for stopping by and be sure to let me know what you think!

Fall Styling...





Dress: c/o C.C. Lake|Cardigan: American Eagle (white version/similar/love/also love this and this)|Booties: Target (old, save/similar/love)|Bag: Loft (similar/save/splurge/dream)|Hair Extensions: Bellami Bellissima 220g 22" Chocolate Brown (use code Storm5 for $5 off!)

I love the print and the amazing fit of this C.C. Lake dress (previously seen HERE), so I wanted to keep wearing it into fall! I added one of my favorite comfy cardigans plus a matching pair of booties and the dress was easily transformed from summer into autumn! I hope everyone is having a great week!

The Perfect Pair...


















Jeans: c/o East & Lo|Tee: Urban Outfitters Project Social Tee (on sale! color: light brown/size: small)|Scarf: Forever 21 (sold out, other colors/very similar/similar/love)|Booties: Target (old, save/similar/love)|Bag: c/o Big Buddha "Arlington"|Hair Extensions: Bellami Bellissima 220g 22" Chocolate Brown (use code Storm5 for $5 off!)

I will admit, I have a love-hate relationship with jeans. I am normally a dresses year-around kind of girl, not only because I love them, but also because it is so hard for me to find the perfect pair of jeans that fit right. I have a black pair from H&M that I love and have worn into the ground, and of course I love my slouchy boyfriend pair, but I haven't found a great dark denim pair. Until now. I was SO excited to receive these Flying Monkey Vintage Skinny from East & Lo in the mail! I was pleasantly surprised at how perfectly these fit! I was shocked actually. They are so stretchy and comfortable yet hold an amazing shape and flatter all of the right places. I love the dark blue wash and I'm crazy about the distressed detailing. I have a feeling you will be seeing a lot more of these jeans in upcoming looks! If you haven't checked out East & Lo you definitely should! They have an amazing selection of denim for under $100! I am also loving all of their fall sweaters (like this one)! Thank you so much for stopping by and be sure to let me know what you think!
