Thank you Ma - Open Letter to my Mom - Mother's Day Edition 2017

"The beauty of a woman must be seen from in her eyes, because that is the doorway to her heart, the place where love resides." ~ Audrey Hepburn

Hey hey sweetie pies, with Mother's day 2 days away I wanted to dedicate today's post to my Mom. Here is my open letter to you...

Hi Ma Happy (Early) Mother's day! I want to thank you for all the things that you have taught me
1. For teaching me to put God first
2. For teaching me to not be afraid to speak up for myself because no one else will do it for me.
3. For teaching me to not judge a book by its cover
4. For teaching me to be a strong woman
5. For teaching me the importance of an education
6. For teaching me the value of hard work
7. For teaching me to love life 
8. For teaching me who I belong to
9. For teaching me to love myself
10. For teaching me take pride in what I do
11. For teaching me to respect my elders
12. For teaching me that my opinion holds value
13. For teaching me what unconditional love looks like
14. For teaching me that I should always trust my gut, my intuition
15. For teaching me that I can do whatever I set my mind to
16. For teaching me to fight for the life that I want
Ma, you are a true testimony of strength, love and light. You have always worked so hard to provide for us. Even though I could not ever pay you back, I hope that I have made you proud and that I continue to do so. I am so proud to inherit your sassy attitude and love of dance. God knew what he was doing with that one. It is so cool to think that you have so much love that you can love me and my 2 sisters all at the same time. You have shown us that there is nothing wrong with falling as long as you get back. Your stories of hardship and tough love has inspired us to give our best at all times. I always appreciate your transparency. Thank you for always being there when I call (or if you don't answer you always call back) when I have a question about literally anything. You always have supported me and always 100 with me. (Thanks for that) I am so lucky to have a mom like you. I thank God for you and I love you. :)

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!

As always, XO and Stay FAB! ~ Stormie J
