Earn MAJOR Style Points this Fall season with this Unsuspecting Color Combo!

"Problems are not stop signs, they are guidelines." ~ Robert H. Schuller
Hey sweetie pies! Happy Monday and Happy Halloween! I hope you had an awesome weekend! I don't really celebrate Halloween like talking about it. But I don't have anything against it. While some are still partying or recuperating from a crazy weekend. I am working working working! 

With that being said, you guys know that I am always trying to find new ways to rock things in my closet. Whether that is mixing different textures or different prints, I am all about getting the absolute most out of my wardrobe. Plus it is fun! I was pleasantly surprised when I was styling this outfit. I started with these olive pants that I got ages ago at +New York & Company with this top from +Target from the +Who What Wear collection. I know I wanted to have more color so I opted for this hat from +Charlotte Russe and then added these shoes from A'gaci. My assumption was that this look was going to come off 'Christmas-y' but since both colors are a rich, deep tone they surprisingly complimented one another in my opinion.

In traditional 'So Fabulously Sweet' fashion, I had to take this look up another notch. I am sucker for mixing prints but I had to make sure that whatever print I use contain only neutral colors. This way it wouldn't overwhelm my entire look. You know your girl loves some leopard so I grabbed this scarf and mini purse from +Charming Charlie and paired it with these minaret tiger eye petite drop earrings  from my boutique. The mixing of the polka dots and the leopard print worked here because of the contrast created by the bold leopard and the minimal polka dot.

I had the pleasure of working with the photographer Sherman McCain and it was nothing short of amazing. He does photography for a number of things from weddings to family and lifestyle to commercial and branding. He is Houston based and one of the best photographers that I have worked with thus far. He did everything to put me at ease, including playing music. (Which you guys know I listen to music to pretty much get anything done.) He is very genuine and I think he did a great job capturing my personality. (Check out this silly candid pic that he captured below!) Plus he's an Alpha man so I am always down to work with members of the Divine 9! Make sure to go to his website or his Instagram to see his work. 
*I was milly rocking on any block*** LMAO

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!
