Feeling Feminine with Chunky Knits! - Outfit Inspiration

"Every artist was first an amateur." ~ Ralph Waldo Emerson
Hey sweetie pies happy Monday! For today's post I wanted to bring out the knit wear. I am talking chunky sweaters and chunky scarfs. When it comes to chunky knits, they are usually thought to be warm and comfortable. While this statement is true, I wanted to find a way to make a chunky knit sweater fit my style. I definitely like pairing unexpected pieces together often with a feminine or edgy touch. 

I decided to pair this knit sweater that I got last season from Target (similar options listed below) with my tried and true pencil skirt. I opted for an oversized fit for the sweater picking it up in an XL. This kind of skirt is perfect because of its fit which creates contrast for the loose oversized sweater. So that my waist line wouldn't get lost in the look, I decided to do a half tuck in the front. This allows the peplum, which adds feminine flair, to show and draws attention to my waist. If you ever have…

My Faves for September!

"Successful people are always looking for opportunities to help others. Unsuccessful people are always asking, 'What's in it for me?'" ~ Brian Tracy
Hey there sweetie pies. We are already in October! September kind of just flew by huh? Well you know with a new month comes new monthly favorites. With my busy schedule I haven't had much time this month to try out new products or get into many products for that matter. If you haven't checked out my life update post yet, check it out to read all about what I have been up to. Even though I don't have many faves this month, these products I swear by!

Maybelline Fit Me Matte and Poreless Foundation
This has definitely become one of my favorite drugstore foundations. It is lightweight while providing medium to full coverage. I use the shade 340 or cappuccino. It is available pretty much anywhere but I linked it here for your convenience.

So Fabulously...Random? - Life Update and Blog Announcement

"The only way of finding the limits of the possible is by going beyond them into the impossible." ~ Arthur C. Clarke
Hey hey sweetie pies! Did you check out part 1 of my Fall Style Lookbook? If not, make sure to go give it a look. Part 2 will definitely be coming soon! For today's look I wanted to provide some outfit inspiration with a tribute to mod style. One thing about me and my style, I wear exactly what I want. Please note that the white button down is actually a shirt that I got from my boyfriend that I often wear as a dress. I have styled this oversized top in a number of ways such as here and here. When I tell you guys where I got this black and white checkered dress from you won't believe me.
I got it from Wal-Mart for $3!!! It is actually a tunic that I got in a larger size to fit like a dress! Pretty groovy huh? (That's a reference from one of my favorite 90s movies, can you guess what it is? Leave me a comment below of just the movie title)
I decide…

#StyleByStormieJ - Fall 2017 Style LookBook

"How wonderful it is that nobody need wait a single moment before starting to improve the world." ~ Anne Frank 
Hey hey sweetie pies! This first day of Fall came on the 22nd and I figured that it was time that I have a lookbook for you all! I have been busy creating various style sets for not only your inspiration but also for your shopping pleasure. With so many trends and style ground to cover, I figured that I would break this up into 2 parts so that it is not so overwhelming.

Jewel tones are perfect for fall and winter seasons respectively. When you opt for jewel tones in luxe fabrics, you have a style match made in heaven! Not only will this give your look depth but everyone will be seeking you for fashion advice! Leopard has a basic and wardrobe necessity in one's closet regardless of personal style. Leopard compliments colors and other prints alike. When you need a re-vamping for your wardrobe, try experimenting with leopard - the results may surprise you! Tip: Tr…

Seeing RED this Fall!

"Happiness is not something readymade. It comes from your own actions." ~ Dalai Lama
Hey sweetie pies, happy Monday! I am so happy to share today's look with you guys. If you caught my Surprising Fall Trends then you would know that red is having a major moment in fashion this season. While I don't own a lot of red (yet) in my wardrobe, I started small with accessories. These red sunnies came from Charming Charlie and they have been giving me life! I love pairing these sunnies with a red lip like you see here.
I decided to pair this denim shirt with my all time fave skirt. I have really feeling this skirt lately so you will see it more on the blog in the weeks to come. I opted for these heels because they have blue and red in them plus I love the chunky cut out heel. And of course I completed the look with this red handbag. 

Have any exciting goals/plans for the week? If so, let me know in the comment section below! I will be doing a life update post soon since I ha…
