My 5 Biggest Blogging Regrets

"Be slow to fall into friendship; but when thou art in, continue firm and constant." ~ Socrates

Hey sweetie pies! Happy Thursday! We are almost to the weekend! Whoo-hoo! For me, my weekend has officially begun. I was in thought earlier today, and I came up with the idea to write about this topic today - My biggest regrets when it comes to blogging. 
Now the title may or may not catch you a bit off-guard but trust when I say that you will enjoy reading this. Even more, you might find that you have similar regrets when it comes to different aspects of your life as well. Hopefully reading about my regrets will inspire you to make a change about something in your life. 😀

1. I regret not starting my blog sooner.
I can't lie, there are some times when I think of different things could be if I would've started sooner. 

2. I regret ever comparing myself to other bloggers.
I have talked about this on the blog before and how toxic it can be for your confidence and overall morale. You must remember that everyone's journey is different. 

3. I regret not investing in my blog sooner.
Since I considered my blog just a hobby when I started, I didn't really think about domain ownership, customized themes, monetizing - nothing like that.  So therefore, I didn't think about investing in my blog and the importance of doing so. But I am slowly but surely making changes to my blog and investing in my many crafts. 

4. I regret being more fearless when it comes to creating content.
Believe it or not, I can be hesitant when it comes to creating content. Especially when it comes to my dancing because it is what I am the most sensitive about. But one blog resolution (if you will) is to do more dance related posts such as videos and sharing more of my dance experiences. 

5. I regret not giving a damn what anyone else may think.
As harsh as it may sound, this statement couldn't resonate with me any more than it does now. I used to get sooooo caught in what the next person might say or do in regards to what I am doing. It crippled me! I started feeding that negative dialogue on the regular. And the worst part? This toxic dialogue started to establish itself in every aspect of my life! It was absolutely terrible and who got time for that?! Tell them haters 'middle fingers up tell them hoes BYE!' (Once again harsh, but definitely needed!!!)

Do you live with any of these kind of regrets? If so, leave them in 2016! They have no place in your life anymore. I challenge you to share one of your biggest regrets below and how you are going to make a change in your life. I love you guys. Let's make this year great!

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!
