Blouse's a Party!

"It took me quite a long time to develop a voice and now that I have it, I am not going to be silent." ~ Madeleine Albright
Hey  hey sweetie pies, happy Tuesday! I hope you all enjoyed your extended Memorial day weekend! Mine was spent running back and forth to take care of move in stuff. David and I are moving into a new apartment that we love and it has been keeping your girl busy! We are moving to big stuff today (ie: bed, sectional, entertainment centers, etc) so we should be staying at the new place tonight and I am so excited! I know I haven't posted in about a week, this whole move-in situation has been taking most of my time so please forgive me. 
As per usual, I have been doing quite a bit of shopping lately. I recently went on a huge haul and I will share what all I bought with you all soon. One trend that I have been loving as of lately is off the shoulder. During my most recent haul, I snagged about 4-5 off the shoulder pieces. It is so much fun! It also giv…

"A strong woman is a woman determined to do something others are determined not be done." ~ Marge Piercy
Hey sweetie pies! Happy Tuesday! I am so excited to share some goodies in skincare, fashion, and beauty that I have been loving. I have been shopping quite a bit these past few months and have rallied up all of my top faves! I will try to link the items or similar ones below. :)
1. Mirrored Aviator Sunglasses
Ever since I snagged these back in March, I have been wearing them non-stop! They are the perfect accessory to create that cool girl vibe.

How to Dress Up Jeans and a Tee

"A woman is like a tea bag; you never know strong it is until it's in hot water." ~ Eleanor Roosevelt
Hey sweetie pies! I hope your day has been well! Also did you enjoy your weekend? I have been busy with trying to move and get everything packed up (failing at that might I add). That's where the little bit of time I have left in my schedule it seems, goes to that. 

When you think of a graphic tee what comes to mind? Do you think of that one that you stole from your ex-boyfriend when you were 15? Perhaps it is a rock concert souvenir graphic tee? Or in my case, a sorority tee? I have a million and one Zeta t-shirts (about 20 to be exact) but this one is definitely my fave!! I immediately fell in love with it when I saw it. (The silver glitter gives me all kinds of life) I love dressing up graphic tees, it is definitely more of a challenge. It is expected to style this with jeans...as I did here but I opted to take it a step further.  

I opted for these white caged h…

"You have to get up every morning and tell yourself, 'I can do this.' " 
Happy Thursday sweetie pies! The weekend is almost here and I am so excited! It has been a long rough week for me due to this stupid cold. However I am getting better day by day. :) For today's post I figured that I would share a list of my 10 top tips for starting a blog. I have been running So Fabulously Sweet for almost 3 years now. It has become my baby, my side hustle (hopefully my career one day), my creative outlet and so much more! A question that I have been getting a lot is "Stormie, how can I start a blog?" Now before I completely jump off the deep end and give you information overload about a blog, (because believe it or not there is A LOT of info to be shared) I want to give you 10 tips to consider before you have your site up and running. 
1. Know Your Why It is important to know why you want to start a blog in the first place! I say this because your 'why' is…

Must Have Mules!

"A happy woman is a beautiful woman."

Hey hey sweetie pies! One shoe style that is definitely trending this season is the Mule. Nostalgic of the 90s era, the Mule is a slide style shoe that can either be worn as flats or heels. They are being seen everywhere in multiple colors, textures and prints. I figured for today's post we would explore the Mule and I'd share some of my personal faves along the way!




Which ones are your fave? Let me know in the comment section below! As always, XO and Stay FAB! ~ Stormie J

Seeing RED and Leopard - Cookie Inspired Fashion

"The empowered woman is powerful beyond measure and beautiful beyond description." ~ Steve Maraboli

Hey hey sweetie pies! I hope you all have been having an awesome week! I wanted to share this look that I wore to the office the other week. This look was inspired by Cookie from Empire. I am obsessed with that show and her character. Her style is so bold and bright, I love it! I know that she is a fan of prints as am I so I had to pay homage with this leopard blazer. Since I see leopard as a neutral, I opted for this red tank that I got ages ago. I ended up pairing this with black skinny jeans and my all time fave black booties to top it off.



For my accessories, I opted for my ethereal chandelier choker necklace from my boutique. I paired that with my crystal pave hoop earrings my leopard hair bow and I was good to go! I love this look it is so sassy and fun1 I will definitely try to recreate this look for warmer weather.

"Do small great things with love." ~ Mother Teresa Hey hey sweetie pies! Happy Monday! I hope you all had a great weekend and enjoyed Mother's Day! My mother's day post from Friday was so well received from you all so thank you so much! 

Now you all know that I am all about making the most out of my wardrobe. I like to be able to style my pieces multiple ways and through multiple seasons. It helps to maximize my wardrobe and to make sure that I get my money's worth. Well today I opted for this skirt that I bought last year for a Christmas party, but ever since then I have been styling in numerous ways! You can see other ways that I have styled this skirt through posts here and here

I decided to create a feminine sporty look. I opted for this shirt with the C+I motto, "Be Creative. Be Confident. Be You". I love this motto because it is something that I live by daily. I tied the shirt in a side knot for a cool effortless vibe. To tie everything togethe…

Sporty Chic - How to Dress up Athletic Leggings

"Never limit yourself because of others' limited imagination; never limit others because of your own limited imagination." ~ Mae Jemison 
Hey hey sweetie pies, happy Tuesday! I hope you all had a great day yesterday and even better day today! For today's post, I wanted to show you how to create a sporty chic look with athletic leggings. Think of this look as an upgraded athleisure look. I definitely wanted to dress this look up. It is the perfect look for going to a bar and hanging with your girlfriends. 
I opted for these leggings that I got from Rainbow for less than $10! I paired them with this floral blouse and denim jacket. I decided on these strappy heels to make the look a little sexy. :) What do you sweetie pies think? Unfortunately all of my pieces are sold out or I couldn't find them so I am linking similar items below. I also made sure to include plenty of options so hopefully you can find something that you like!
