The Importance of Listening to your Heart

"It is important to express oneself...provided the feelings are real and are taken from your own experience." ~ Berthe Morisot 

Hey sweetie pies, I hope you all are having are a great week so far! Mine has been pretty good, I won't complain you know? I have been doing a lot of thinking. What is that I want to do with my life? What I want my future to be? Where do I see myself a year from now? 5 years? 10 years? I have an idea of what I want my future to be like but I also want to make sure that I have a plan for myself.  This required me to do some soul searching and think about my many passions. 

I have always believed that you should do what you love, what makes you happy. There is a reason why there are things that you love or always thinking about. Think about what comes easy to you. What is something that you love that you can't go a day without thinking about it?
I had an inspiring conversation with a new friend a couple of days ago and she made me realize just how precious and short life can be. It is important to do what it is that you love and that you dream of doing. The best time to do whatever it is, is NOW! I would rather live a life of 'oh well's' than 'what ifs' - wouldn't you? 

So take a moment and listen to your heart. What is it that you want out of life? What makes you feel the most alive? Figure out where that is and then go there. Don't let another day pass that you don't work on your goals and dreams. I know I won't be letting that happen anymore. I challenge all of my sweetie pies to do a little soul searching and discover your passion, your gift, your goal and then work towards that. Plan, pray and then execute - remember that. 

What is something that you have always wanted to do but didn't for whatever reason? Maybe it was because of fear, financial reasons, no plan, or perhaps you didn't feel it was worth pursuing? The main reason why I wasn't pursuing my dreams like I should was because of fear of failing. But if I never try then I have already failed myself regardless. Honestly, that was a scary thing for me to admit just then. I always knew deep down that I was afraid yet I would always come up with some excuse as to why I wasn't chasing my dreams. Vulnerability is a beautiful thing because it humbles you and causes you to realize what really matters. 
I would love to hear your thoughts below. Remember we are family here so this is a no judgement zone. Sharing in fears and thoughts can be a scary feeling at first but once you let those negative feelings out it is quite liberating. :)

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!
