So Fabulously Sweet Turns 1!

“You are not in this world to live up to other people’s expectations, nor should you feel the world must live up to yours.” ~ F. Perl
Hey Sweetie Pies! Sooo today is a special day because So Fabulously Sweet turns 1! So in honor of that I had to do a special post! This year has been quite a ride. I have learned so much, not only about blogging, but about myself as well. In today's post, I will be recapping with some of my favorite posts as well as some of the many things I have learned along the way. 

I realized that I have to stay motivated for myself and not others. Sometimes I was my own worst enemy when it came to how I looked in pictures or if I didn't have alot of views for a particular post. Then I had to remember why I started in the first place. 

I started my blog as a hobby if you will. I didn't have much of a creative outlet at the time so I figured I would create my own. I had been debating on starting a blog for a while at the time. I have always loved fashion and dressing up, I would even get compliments on my outfits sometimes. I was following other bloggers and was becoming so inspired so I figured why not? 

And I loved it! I loved being able to have the create freedom to do EXACTLY what I wanted. It's been so liberating! So when I have those doubtful moments I just reflect back to why I started. And at the end of the day, no one can stop me from doing me but well, ME! lolz

Another thing that I have been guilty of is comparing myself and the success of my blog to others. Not only is this unhealthy, it is very dangerous if you ask me. I have to remember that I am not on the same journey as others. I don't talk about the same things that other bloggers talk about. I have to remember that I can't beat myself up about things like that. 

I have to stay self motivated as well as celebrate the success of other blogs while continuing to develop and expand my own. I just continue to work hard and allow myself to be inspired daily so that I can take So Fabulously Sweet to the next level. 

I have learned so much about blogging such as learning to be consistent with my content on here. In the realm such as this one, I have to post regularly to stay relevant. It also gives my Sweetie Pies something to look forward to if they know when a post is going to go live. 

Even though this started as a hobby, the longer I work with this blog, the more involved I get. I am blessed to say that I have participated in link-ups, giveaways, and collaborations with other bloggers. I am also excited to say that I have some sponsorship with awesome companies such as +Rocksbox . 

I thank God for giving me the courage to start this blog, the tools to do so, and the vision to even start this blog in the first place. I am so excited about what's to come and expanding more into beauty and lifestyle posts. I want to eventually start a YouTube account where I do makeup tutorials and in depth fashion videos. I want to continue to do more and expand the brand "So Fabulously Sweet" and I hope you all to continue to come along for the ride. I lastly want to thank you all, my Sweetie Pies for all of the support and joining me this far. Even though I believe that I started this blog as something for myself, it's imperative that I have the support of you all. That also includes doing what best serves you all. With that being said, what are some things that you all would like to see here on So Fabulously Sweet? I want to hear what things you would like to read about, fashion tips, makeup tutorials, etc. Make sure you comment below. 

Also, which of these outfits was your favorite? I am so excited for what's to come for So Fabulously Sweet. Happy Blogaversary to ME! 

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!
