Fall 2018 Style Look Book Pt. 2

"Hard days are the best because that's when champions are made." ~ Gabby Douglas

Hello sweetie pies! How crazy is it to think that we are in the month of November? Alexa cue Mariah Carey's "All I want for Christmas is you".  While everyone is getting into a holiday state of mind, let's not forget about the fact that Fall is now in full swing. We have even experienced some cold days here in Houston, with lows reaching to the high 40s. It makes me beyond excited for the rest of Fall and Winter. Fall is easily one of my favorite seasons to dress for. There are so many ways for you to experiment with your style such as layering and playing with textures. This season there are a number of new trends as well as returning ones that I have styled for your inspiring pleasure. Continue scrolling to see part 2 of my Fall inspired style look book.

This look totally gives me parisian chic vibes. This printed ruffled skirt is super fun and when paired with this knit sweater, it creates a nice contrast. Accessorized with a color block handbag, tortoiseshell sunglasses as well as black and gold accessories to complete the look.
This look is not for the faint at heart or those hesitant to experiment with fashion. This look begins with a floral print blouse and grey pinstripe high waist pants. I am all about bringing together completely different pieces to create a unique aesthetic. These chunky Fila sneakers do just that while adding a layer of comfort. A soft pink teddy coat adds a pop of color. Completed with this dark sunnies, geometric earrings and a pearl handbag that I am totally crushing on right now. This is a great everyday look for a fashionista who loves a challenge. 
I call this look the "drama queen". This look is all about drama and extra. The lace skirt paired with this low cut cashmere top and Doc Martens creates an edgy look. To lighten it up a bit, I opted for this patchwork trench coat which is definitely a conversation starter. Complete this look with a mini tote and oversized sunglasses for a day out. 
This look is super fun with a mix of metallic and textures. These "track pants" inspired trousers are super chic and look great with this lace top. Breaking one popular fashion rule which is wearing white after Labor Day. I believe you should wear what you want to wear when you feel like it! Plus this looks great with this metallic puffer coat. A pair of black dangle earrings, silver jewelry, metallic handbag and cool sunnies accessorize this look and bring it to life. Lastly, a pair of chunky black boots that offer style as well as comfort. I call this look "New York Minute" as I can picture someone rocking this look in the middle of Times Square while hailing a cab. What do you sweetie pies think?
To start, I opted for this gorgeous one shoulder off white top with ruffle details. Then I paired it with these khaki wide legs pants to add some dimension. For shoes, I opted with a pair of minimalist nude heels with a low heel for long term comfort. For jewelry, I kept it simple with a pair of hoop earrings and added these nude sunnies. This handbag is totally on trend with the faux fur and the pearl strap, making it one of a kind. Lastly, baker boy caps are returning this season but opt for an upgrade. This cap comes in a nice nude color with gold chain details. 

This is a fuss free look with denim and a cool top. What makes this top so interesting is not just the material but the shape of the blouse as well. This top is also great for highlighting your waist. A pair of black booties, sunnies and a crossbody handbag round out this  look. Look is perfect for a chill night out with some friends. 
I call this look "Librarian chic". This skirt gives me more of a mature vibe so I paired the skirt with this sexy cropped wrap sweater. A simple oversized handbag in a neural color compliments the look instead of taking away from it. Animal print is trending in a major way but if you're still on a fence, try it with an accessory. These animal print booties are the perfect ending for this look. Would you rock it?
If you are looking to try animal print in a major way, opt for a piece just like these shorts. Snake skin print is major especially in unexpected colors. This white and black pair looks great with this red bow blouse with black over the knee boots. A gray designer handbag to add bit of luxe - completed with sparkly earrings and cateye sunglasses.
Anyone else get Clueless vibes from the 90s? This look is super fun and girly with a fit and flare plaid dress, layered with a black turtleneck and booties. A felt beret and a pink backpack to add a bit of color to the look. This look is super easy to recreate and make it your own.
Nothing like playing with textures and bold prints such as the ones seen in this look. A pair of brown leather pants paired with this print blouse to start. Then I added these boots that are a bit different from what I would normally go for - making it the best time to try them right? Then I added this fun geometric mosaic clutch in this bright green to compliment the green in the blouse. Next I added this faux fur coat because it is so luxe and looks so good in this jewel tone. Lastly I added a pair of simple black sunnies and a pair of stud earrings to complete the look.
For this last look, I started with this gorgeous dress! I love all of the details from the lace to the prints to the bows. This dress is perfect for any occasion. Allowing the dress to be the focal point, I opted for a pair of simple pumps with a structured mini handbag. Lastly a pair of statement earrings to just a subtle touch and bring out the colors in the dress.

As always, XO and Stay FAB! ~ Stormie J

As some of you may know I suffer from eczema. I first noticed I had eczema as a child and was able to keep it pretty much under control. Within the past 2-3 years it has begun to rear it's ugly head again. With all of the smog, the sweating, the heat, the stress, the fragrances and a number of other factors - it has ignited my eczema to where it is hard to use a lot of my favorite things. One of which is perfume. I love smelling good plus it helps to lift my mood. I usually prefer to spray it on my wrist and behind my ears but had to stop doing that. I then resulted to misting it on my clothes but that still would irritate my…

Hey hey sweetie pies! Today's post is a look that I have had in heavy rotation. I mean we all have that "no fail" outfit that we love to wear any and everywhere. It is super comfy and you still look put together. I opted for this cotton, slightly oversized button down and dark wash fitted jeans. I love wearing it with sandals for daytime, heels for nighttime and sneakers for weekend. For the daytime, I pretty much style it like I have here. I have just wore the shirt as is with my jeans cuffed. I paired it with this conv…
