10 Reasons Why I Love Summer!

"Some people feel the rain. Others just get wet." ~ Bob Marley

Heeeyyyy sweetie pies, happy Monday! I am super excited because it is the first day of summer! *throws confetti* My favorite season is summer so I figured that I would share 10 reasons why. I also have a new look that I am sharing so let me know what you sweetie pies think!

1. My Birthday!
My birthday is in August so yeah one reason is a little biased or self-centered if you will but whatevs! I always treat my birthday as a holiday. 

2. Summer Sales!!
As if I need another reason for shopping. But I LOVE shopping all of the summer sales and adding to my wardrobe. One of which is the summer solstice sale that is now available in my boutique. Just click the Chloe + Isabel tab at the top of the home page. 

3. Summer Dance Intensive Workshops
Summer time is the perfect time for local studios to host dance intensives. I love investing in my craft and taking as many classes as I possibly can. Since school is out, studios usually have more classes available than usual. Click here to read about summer intensive workshops here in Houston. 

4. Water! - Pools, Beaches and Waterparks
Ok for a quick moment of truth, I am learning how to swim so I am not too confident when it comes to swimming. However I really do love the water! With that being said, I am always down to get in the pool, go to the beach or waterpark. There is a new waterpark that just recently opened in Katy. Has anyone tried it out yet? If so, let me know!

5. Summer time = PARTY TIME!
 I am always down for a cookout, campfire, pool party, music festival, you name it! I am always up for a having a good time. *starts dancing* ooh ahh aye turn up!!

6. Summer Fashion
Bring out all the shorts, skirts and dresses that you can find!!! Honestly, I hate wearing pants in the summertime because it is just too darn hot!!! Besides my thighs are too big for all of that, lolz. I love rocking all the latest trends and experimenting with fashion. I always think of bold prints and colors when I think of summer and I feel like my summer style reflects that. 

7.  Summer Recipes!
Now for those of you who know me on a personal level know and understand my appreciation for food. Food and I have a very, very special relationship lolz. I will always have food by my side, just in case David ever acts up, food will be bae lmao! I love trying new food/drink recipes that are summer inspired! My boyfriend David loves to grill any chance he get plus we are both from Louisiana. So trust and believe when I say that any chance David grills I am super happy! I personally love grilled sausage and veggies! :) 

8. Summer Adventures!
I will travel any time of the year but I definitely believe that I travel the most during the summer. I usually visit home at least once during the summer. It is easier for me to take spontaneous trips or staycations even since since is out, my work schedule slows down. (I am a dance teacher on weekdays, fyi) I love road tripping with David or my girlfriends. They are the best! 

9. Late Nights
I just love the idea of having longer days during the summer to enjoy. I personally enjoy being by the water while watching the sun set. Evening summer skies are so pretty to me. 

10.  Summer Time = Happy Time
I honestly love every season for different reasons, but nothing quite compares to the summer if you ask me. When you put all the previously mentioned reasons together, it's a no brainer for me! 

What do you like about summer? Leave your thoughts 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!
