Get It Done Monday

"I am seeking. I am striving. I am in it with all my heart." ~ Vincent Van Gogh







Hey Sweetie Pies! In today's post I am sharing an outfit that I took on the way out of the door last week for work. This is honestly one of the many reasons why I love my job so much is because I get to dress up from time to time. I honestly like dressing up every chance that I get. I love this outfit. In this outfit I am ready to handle business. I love the soft pink and pearls to help soften this look that would've otherwise been read as "tough lady".

I really wanted to encourage you guys that whatever it is, Get. It. Done. Whether that is work, a new startup, chores, homework, errands, a new creative project... Get It Done! Sometimes we get lazy or even complacent in our situation, ignoring that there is so much more we want to do. So much untapped potential, going to waste. I have been guilty of this very thing myself. You have to keep going, seeking and striving just like …

Back to School Link Up : How to Pick the Perfect Sorority for You

"We can only be said to be alive in those moments when our hearts are conscious of our treasures." ~ Thornton Wilder

Hey Sweetie Pies! So in today's post I wanted to share something with all of my college sweetie pies who are considering going Greek. Now from someone who is a member of a sorority, I can honestly say that it was one of the best decisions that I've ever made in my life! I have developed a new set of skills, learned how to manage my time, became more aware of socioeconomic issues, made lifelong friends and learned how to become a better leader. Honestly this list goes on and on but I bet you're probably wondering, "How did you get all of that from joining a sorority?" Well I am glad that you asked. I am going to share with you some things that I did to help me pick the sorority best for me as well as some things that I learned along the way. (I think my sorority is the BEST out there but every sorority girl will tell you that about their s…

#WhatIWore Wednesday

"Let the beauty we love be what we do. There are hundreds of ways to kneel and kiss the ground." ~ Rumi

Hey Sweetie pies! In today's post I want to share with you guys #WhatIWore this past weekend. I stopped by the mall to pick up my birthday gift at Sephora. Oh yeah, btw.... If you go in and sign up to be a beauty insider, they email cool offers, promos, discounts and get you a little something something on your special day! The more you shop, the more points you get to redeem FREE stuff! So yeah, you should like totally go check that out! :)

I also went to a hookah bar/lounge to see a comedy show that my cousin hosted and I had so much fun! I am always down for a good laugh! I definitely think laughter is the best medicine (and maybe a amaretto sour or two... it's my fave drink!) I apologize that I don't have any pics from the comedy show. Sometimes I am just having so much fun that I honestly forget to take some pics! But it is so important to live in the mome…

First Day of School #OOTD

"The most beautiful people we have known are those who have known defeat, known suffering, known struggle, known loss, and have found their way out of the depths. These persons have an appreciation, a sensitivity, and an understanding of life that fills them with compassion, gentleness, and a deep loving concern. Beautiful people just don't happen." ~ Elizabeth Kubler Ross

Hey Sweetie Pies! I hope you all a had a great weekend. Today's post I am sharing a "First Day of School" outfit. Now even though I am no longer in college I thought I would still do a post for all of my readers out there who are. Now me personally, I LOVE dressing up for the first day, whether that is for work, school, conferences, whatever! I am a firm believer in when you look good, you feel good! There is just something about throwing on a cute dress in a power color with heels that boosts my confidence! Confidence is the number one thing that you need to have to take on a new school …

Stripes with Vibrant Florals

"Art must be an expression of love or it is nothing." ~ Marc Chagall

Hey Sweetie Pies! In today's post I want to share an #OOTD for you all. Now as many as of you may already know, I am in love with stripes and florals alike! I love how feminine and fun this outfit is! Since my dress is black and white stripes, I opted for a burst of bright color with this watercolor floral scarf! What do you sweetie pies think?

Navy X Olive Green

"Art is not a thing, it is a way." ~ Elbert Hubbard

Hey Sweetie Pies! I wanted to share with you guys an outfit that I rocked a while back for a lunch date with one of my sorority sisters. I liked how well this look just came together. As you all may remember since I have said this before, I usually come up with the best looks when it is effortless. I absolutely LOVE when that happens! Especially considering that getting dressed is the last thing I want stressing me out.

I hope everyone is having a great week! What is your go-to outfit for a lunch date? Leave me a comment below, as always XO and Stay FAB! ~ Stormie 



Made It to Senior Year, Now What???

"Many people lose the small joys in the hope for the big happiness." ~ Pearl S. Buck

Hey sweetie pies, so for all of my college seniors out there, you have made it to your senior year! After three (hopefully rewarding) long years you are on the brink of achieving this great moment in your life. But with that excitement comes so many concerns -- What am I going to do? Where am I going to do? Wait I am not ready for the real world! (insert minor freakout here right)

Well for starters, take a breath and relax. Don't let these thoughts consume you. It is normal for anyone to be uncertain about their future. And remember that there's not a rule book that says you have to have the rest of your life lined out for with a yellow brick road. (And if there is, someone leave me a comment about that book! You know so I don't look like an idiot.) But just remember that some of the most successful people in the world didn't really hit their stride until they were in their l…

Thinking of the Tropics

"Art will remain the most astonishing activity of mankind born out of struggle between wisdom and madness, between dream and reality in our mind." Magdalena Abakanowicz

Hey my Sweetie Pies! Happy Friday! I have a jam packed and exciting weekend planned because guess what, it's my birthday weekend! I will be turning a year older and hopefully a year wiser on the 16th! I have a lot of things planned. For starters, I am hosting a trunk show tonight here in Houston at the Fashion Truck Society from 6-9 pm and then my boyfriend has something planned for me. I have no idea what though, but I LOVE surprises so I am anxious to see what that's going to be. I always like to do something where I can be somewhat of a big kid so I am going to Dave and Busters with some friends tomorrow evening and then hitting the town tomorrow night with my girls! I am so excited! I will try to take pics so that I can show you all later.

I have been thinking lately since we are getting back in t…

Dorm Room Essentials!

"The Earth has music for those who listen." - William Shakespeare


Hey Sweetie Pies, move in day is quickly approaching for all of my college readers out there. Now even though I have graduated college, I absolutely loved my dorm. It was definitely my home away from home, my little special haven. It was the best thing to see after a long day of classes, meetings, and rehearsals. (I was VERY involved during my college career) It had everything I needed and was perfect for whatever I did whether that's studying, relaxing, or even entertaining guests.

In today's post I am going to share with you all my dorm room essentials and hopefully this will help make you feel right at home!

1.) Mattress cover - A lot of the mattresses at colleges are old and not that comfortable to say the least so I suggest grabbing a mattress cover for some extra plush.

2.) Bedding - Now of course this sounds obvious but I suggest investing in some really nice bedding. Something that is comfortab…

College Wardrobe Essentials!

"If you want to lift yourself up, lift up someone else." ~ Booker T. Washington

Hey Sweetie Pies! The first day of school is literally around the corner and as a college student you may some concerns as you're approaching a new year and a new school. Now most colleges that I know of don't have a dress code, now with that being said, don't walk around wearing little to nothing. That never leaves a good impression, on anyone, classmates or professors alike.

Your schedule will change from what it did while in grade school because for one you are on your own now and because you will have alot to do. The reality is, there will be times where you may oversleep with 20 minutes to get ready and dash off to class, but I am a firm believer that you must always look presentable. There will be test days where comfort is key. There will be presentation days and career fairs that call for business casual attire. And then lastly there will be that occasional frat house party r…
