Hey Sweetie Pies! I hope you all had a fabulous weekend and are having an even more awesome Monday!
As I am typing this I am thinking about the fact that I have had roughly 4 hours of sleep. If there's one thing that I have learned in the more recent months is that I have to love the grind. It guarantees me that I will be able to push forward and persevere, even when I don't necessarily want to. I have been having a jam packed schedule  lately (which honestly prefer because I get bored easily) and sometimes it's hard to balance it all. I will be posting a video hopefully later this week where I will share some of the many things that I do btw... But I said all that to say this, most people cringe when it comes to Mondays, they aren't motivated. Most people don't look forward to Mondays or the week at all for that matter. For people who feel this way, it is usually because they feel like their life has no direction or purpose. They don't do the things that they love. I for one, cannot operate like that. I have to immerse myself into things that I love and are passionate about. Otherwise I am just a very very unhappy person. I encourage you all to figure out what it is that pushes you, intrigues you, excites you and pursue that. The way I see it, life is hard and short as it is, you might as well enjoy it!

What do you guys think of this look? I wore this look the other week for work. I loved it! You guys know I love me a denim shirt! I loved the pearls and the crystals together. My pearl necklace and crystal bracelet are both from Chloe+Isabel. I wanted to add a little more flair to my shirt so I added these stud earrings from +CharmingCharleHQ to my collar. I really liked the outcome! I will definitely be trying this other blouses, ones that have collars in particular. I opted for these new strappy heels from A'Gaci to add a hint of sexy. (I probably still look like a 7th grader with my little fro though, HAHA!)

I hope you guys enjoy the rest of your week? What big things that you have to tackle this week? A test? A paper? A new assignment for work? A personal project? I feel like I should always be working towards something. Let me know what's going on in your world!

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…
