How to Rock the STRIPES TWICE in ONE OUTFIT!

"Writing isn't about making money, getting famous, getting dates, getting laid, or making friends. In the end, it's about enriching the lives of those who will read your work, and enriching your own life, as well." ~ Stephen King
Hey my Sweetie Pies! It's Monday! I hope you all had a great weekend and are back to the daily grind, I know I am! In today's post I am going to show you how to rock the same pattern twice all in one outfit! Sounds totes cray cray right? But it's true! Stay tuned...
Oh and yes as you guys to tell I am rocking the au naturale mane! Did you guys miss it or nah? Lolz I know at least one of my readers did ;-). Anywho, in other news, I stumbled upon this outfit by just experimenting. I always think I come up with the best outfits when I am just "messing around" with different pieces. Does anyone have that same kind of luck? When I try too hard, it seems like dressing is a much more daunting task. (Le Struggle) 
Styling an outfit similar to this one is not hard at all in my opinion. I am going to share a few tips if you want to rock an outfit like this one. First, make sure most of your items are a little more mute and/or smaller such as this dress and let one piece be bold such as this top. That way, the look doesn't become overwhelming. I also suggest that since I am doing stripes, you try to find them going opposite ways of one another. For example, the dress is horizontal and the top is vertical. I also opted to keep my accessories all the same color. I am really into metallics right now so I opted for all silver accessories. My silver sandals I got last year from @Payless and my necklace and earrings are from +Chloeandisabeldotorg

And can we just take a moment to talk about these sunnies! I am in love! Big shoutout to my cousin Morgan for getting me these! I saw Gwen Stefani rocking some sunnies like these in my favorite magazine +People StyleWatch and the ones she was rocking were around 60 bucks but I got these for a steal at +Vans for $12!!! And I just love love love these! I like to compliment these sunnies with a bold red lip and my look feels complete! 
So perhaps after being inspired by this post, are you all willing to try and mix some different patterns of your own? If so comment below! 
As always, XO and Stay FAB! ~ Stormie

How to Make Metallic Work for your Office Wardrobe - Twirling in Rose Gold

"To dare is to lose one's footing momentarily. To not dare is to lose oneself." ~ Soren Kierkegaard

Hey hey sweetie pies, happy Tuesday! One trend that I am loving for Spring is the metallic trend. I am spying it everywhere from shoes to clothing to accessories. I raved awhile back about my obsession with this skirt that I got from Charlotte Russe. I love it so much that I had to feature it again on here! For this particular look, I opted to for a more work appropriate ensemble. I paired it with this ruffle blouse that I got ages ago from New York and Company. Even though this piece is no longer available, I linked some ruffle blouses just as fabulous as they are affordable below.




To keep it business casual, I opted to pair it with a blazer and my fave booties. That way you are still covered but fashionable. You can totally make metallic work for the office by letting it be the focal point and pairing it with neutrals. That way you won't be going overboard, especial…

How to Style - B+W Striped Dress 3 of 3 Ways

"We must be willing to let go of the life we planned in order to have the life that is waiting for us." ~ Joseph Campbell
Hey hey sweetie pies I am excited to show you the third way that I styled this dress from Rainbow. I opted to wear it tunic style with a pair of jeans and strappy heels. If the length is too long you can opt to leave two or three buttons closed and tie the ends of the shirt into a knot. It helps you  pull off that easy casual look. You can easily create variations of this look by swapping a few things. You can easily swap out the heels for some flat mules for the perfect casual spring outfit. Or you swap out the jeans for long distressed shorts with sandals for sexy casual look. Even though I have styled this dress 3 ways, the options are really endless. Make sure to check out the 1st or 2nd way that I styled this dress. Which look is your fave? 1, 2, or 3?! Leave your thoughts below I would love to hear!
