Luxe and Cozy & #MotivationMonday - Be your Own Cheerleader!

"Every day we should hear at least one song, read one good poem, see one exquisite picture, and, if possible, speak a few sensible words." ~ Johann Wolfgang de Goethe

Hey sweetie pies, happy Monday! 20 days until Christmas whoo hoo! This is my favorite time of the year! Everything is just so beautiful, magical and joyful - I love it!

I am back at it again with the shirt dresses and otk boots! This was go to Fall uniform with sneakers or booties instead of boots but now that temps are down finally I have been wearing these any and every chance I get. To give this look a luxe cozy feel, I opted for this faux fur jacket that I got last year from A'gaci. 

I used to hate the idea of mixing metals but it has become quite the trendy thing and I will tell you something, I don't hate it! Here I missed some gold plated and rose gold plated pieces from my boutique and I love it! These earrings and necklace paired with these sunnies and small circle clip are currently available for 25% off when you use code FFHOL16 at checkout. 

Now you know it wouldn't be quite Monday if I didn't share a little #MondayMotivation to get you through the week. :)
I often times would find myself confused about why certain individuals don't support me and my dreams. Now I am not talking about random people - I am talking about friends, associates, loved ones. And I had to come to this realization (with the assistance of a blogger babe) that people aren't going to be a part of a winning team until they are #winning. What I mean by that is that most people may not rock with you or support you until you have reached a certain level in your career. 
Sometimes you have to be your own 1 and only cheerleader until people notice. And in order for people to notice, you have to make them pay attention. So that means to give your goals everything you got and work your butt off! And of course, remember the few ones who were always there for you, regardless of your stature.
You got this, you know I am rooting for you. 😉

As always, XO and Stay FAB! ~ Stormie J

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!
