Dressing Up a Basic Tee

Hey Loves! Glad to hear about my surprise finally?! You guys should definitely go check out Modern Ego if you haven't already! Click on "Modern Ego" tab at the top of my home page! It is incredibly hot today! Big shoutout to my cousin Morgan for standing out in the heat with me to take these pics. You're the best love! I opted for a simple gray tee that I snagged at target for $5. I have been challenging myself to upgrade my wardrobe without breaking bank. One thing I noticed that I lack a lot of is the basic tee. Even though it is viewed as boring and blah, you can really dress these things up! Honestly a basic tee can be your new fashion and style bestie this upcoming season. On the blog I will be posting many ways to dress up a basic tee. From pencil skirts to distressed jeans to shorts you all are definitely in for a treat. There is bound to be something that you can find to work into your wardrobe especially when transitioning to fall! I decided to rock this gray tee with some distressed blue jean shorts that I scored from Old Navy a while back. I decided to give this outfit a sexy chic feel by adding these heels from Charlotte Russe. I LOVE these shoes! They're surprisingly comfy! I decided to give a little sparkle with the jewelry that I got from Charming Charlie's. (All on clearance might I add. If you've never checked out their clearance jewelry, you're missing out on life!) And of course my blue beauty by the one and only Gianni Bini! I love this bag because it is not too big, not too small, and it's the PERFECT shade of blue (Shoutout to my awesome sorority Zeta Phi Beta Sorority, INC.) It is so important to invest in basic staples from tees, tanks, pants and shoes! (Your future version of you will thank you later) It is so great and much easier to style your awesome OOTDs when you start with a basic staple and then create your so fabulously sweet outfits! Don't be shy! Post your outfits, mention me on IG (@Ososweetstormie) and hashtag SoFabulouslySweet so I can see your awesome creations! XO and Stay FAB! - Stormie

As some of you may know I suffer from eczema. I first noticed I had eczema as a child and was able to keep it pretty much under control. Within the past 2-3 years it has begun to rear it's ugly head again. With all of the smog, the sweating, the heat, the stress, the fragrances and a number of other factors - it has ignited my eczema to where it is hard to use a lot of my favorite things. One of which is perfume. I love smelling good plus it helps to lift my mood. I usually prefer to spray it on my wrist and behind my ears but had to stop doing that. I then resulted to misting it on my clothes but that still would irritate my…

Hey hey sweetie pies! Today's post is a look that I have had in heavy rotation. I mean we all have that "no fail" outfit that we love to wear any and everywhere. It is super comfy and you still look put together. I opted for this cotton, slightly oversized button down and dark wash fitted jeans. I love wearing it with sandals for daytime, heels for nighttime and sneakers for weekend. For the daytime, I pretty much style it like I have here. I have just wore the shirt as is with my jeans cuffed. I paired it with this conv…
