#GirlTribe Goals

"I never paint dreams or nightmares. I paint my own reality." ~ Frida Kahlo

Hey sweetie pies, in case you didn't know, yesterday was #NationalSistersDay. I know I know, there is a 'day' for everything imaginable. However when I got to thinking about it, I couldn't limit this just to an Instagram or Facebook post with a hashtag that would have the same lifespan of a banana. I had to do more than that. Now is this a post to just brag about my sisters - kinda. But furthermore, I wanted to share this so that you can celebrate your #GirlTribe. I mean I seriously couldn't imagine my life without my sisters. We have literally been through everything together. As cliche' as it sounds, it is the honest truth. I have two biological sisters as well as 6 line sisters that not even blood could make us any closer. I am so grateful to have them in my life, they are literally my best friends!

My little sister Madison.

My sisters are everything for me - from my ride or die to my voice of reason. My sisters are my #GirlTribe and are literally goals!!! I am so proud of all of them and I am going to tell you why. Not only are they beautiful, strong and intelligent; but they are also selfless, caring and hard working. My #GirlTribe is part of the reason why I work so hard and they have inspired me to be the best person that I can be!

Me, my older sister Brandi, and my mom. 

Personally I feel that there are certain ladies that you should have in your #GirlTribe. Your #GirlTribe should bring out the best in you and encourage you to pursue your dreams. Your sisters should accept you for exactly who you are. I personally love how me and all of my sisters are so unique and have multiple interests. 
My line sisters - Christy, Amanda, myself, April, Eboni and Sam.

1. The 'down to ride' sister
This sister is the one you can call on when ish gets real! All you have to do is call them and they already know! You don't have to explain yourself or situation - they know that you are in distress and they are ready to hurt somebody!

2. The 'voice of reason' sister
This sister is the one that will keep you from doing anything irrational or just down right stupid. She is usually the one to put things into perspective and make you think twice. She is very mature and has a good head on her shoulders.

3. The 'real chilled' sister
This sister is so relaxed and go with the flow. One that you usually get positive vibes from and just on all around good feeling when you see them. She's usually the mediator when there's conflict.

4. The 'tell it like it is' sister
This is the sister that is going to tell you straight up like it is. You may not like it, but she never holds her tongue. There may be times where she drives you crazy because you may feel like she is raining on your parade constantly. But trust me, it is just out of a place of love. Now if you don't know anyone in your #GirlTribe like this, then it may be you!

5. The 'always down for a good time' sister
This party girl is nothing but a phone call away. She always down for a girls night out full of getting dressed at each other's house while blasting good music. She is usually the mastermind of getting all the girls together in one place, despite people's crazy schedules. She is also known probably as the hostess with the mostest. The #GirlTribe already knows that when this girl throws a party, it's going to be fun!

6. The 'always working' sister
This sister is no stranger to hard work and firmly believes that to get what you want out of life, you have to work hard. The only down part is trying to get her to tear her away from her work for awhile. She is truly a hustla and about making her coinage. She always inspires every one else to appreciate the grind and work for the life you want. (Not trying to be grammatically correct here)

7. The 'super sweet' sister
The title explains it all. The innocent one out of the group that can easily be corrupted by the party girl or down to ride sister. Yes she is nice, however don't let the sweet exterior fool you because she will pop off if she feels like she is taken advantage of - it just doesn't happen often. 

8, The 'free spirit' sister
She is usually go with the flow type and often very creative. When it is her turn to choose where to go she is usually indifferent because she is about being in the moment. She is always down for whatever and is always willing to compromise. 
My younger sister Madison, my older sister Brandi and I. (Why do I look like the older sister here?? #QTNA)

9. The 'super sensitive' sister
This sister is the emotional one out of the bunch. True she can be a little mushy gushy but she is very considerate of everyone. She is like the 'mom' of the group. She remembers every birthday, every anniversary, and every last one of your family members. One of her biggest joys is to see all of her #GirlTribe happy and thriving.

My line sisters Eboni, Sam, myself and April - Atlanta Greek Picnic 2014

My #GirlTribe have been through everything from heartbreaks to triumphs and they have been there through it all. We have cried over boys (and yes I mean boys), celebrated one another's successes, stayed up late laughing until we cried, had many endless nights, grieved with one another and supported one another in our endeavors. I thank God for each of them and the special bond that I have with each of them.

I am super thankful for my #GirlTribe, the experiences and for all of the things that are to come. I know that they will be along for the ride! I want to personally thank you all for being your true beautiful selves and for putting up with me! Hahaha! I know I tell you all every chance I get, but I love you guys!

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!
