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 the routine of school, work and all that extra that summer is ending too soon... and I am NOT ready! (pouty face) I absolutely love the summer time it is my fave season. I definitely wouldn't mind taking an end of summer vacation. I would definitely hit up a beach or two, or an island lolz. So in honor of how I am feeling, I am rocking this tropical romper that I got a while back from Charlotte Russe.

I am not going to lie, I was a little skeptical about posting these pics because I thought I looked so exposed. I thought I looked so revealing. I sometimes struggle with my curves and how I look in certain clothes. But it is a journey, self love and positive self image is a journey definitely not a destination. I have thick thighs and a curvy midsection but I can't be afraid to rock clothes because I am not a certain size. 
I just want you guys to know that even though I post pics of me on here all the time doesn't mean that I don't struggle with my image and/or what I think people may say. Then I have to remind myself that I am doing this for me, and no one else. So love yourself ladies! You will thank yourself later. :)

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!
