First Day of School #OOTD

"The most beautiful people we have known are those who have known defeat, known suffering, known struggle, known loss, and have found their way out of the depths. These persons have an appreciation, a sensitivity, and an understanding of life that fills them with compassion, gentleness, and a deep loving concern. Beautiful people just don't happen." ~ Elizabeth Kubler Ross

Hey Sweetie Pies! I hope you all a had a great weekend. Today's post I am sharing a "First Day of School" outfit. Now even though I am no longer in college I thought I would still do a post for all of my readers out there who are. Now me personally, I LOVE dressing up for the first day, whether that is for work, school, conferences, whatever! I am a firm believer in when you look good, you feel good! There is just something about throwing on a cute dress in a power color with heels that boosts my confidence! Confidence is the number one thing that you need to have to take on a new school year or semester!

I opted for this fit and flare dress with some low comfortable heels. If you want to take this look to the next level, then add a lightweight blazer. 

Oh and Yes I do wear glasses... Don't judge! I usually wear them when I read and when I drive at night. Also love my notebook?! Totes adorbz right?! This is the notebook that I write down everything So Fabulously Sweet from outfit ideas to "to do" lists. I got this notebook from +T.J.Maxx. They always have the most adorable and affordable notebooks and journals which I LOVE!
What did you guys rock for your first day? Or what do you have in mind for the first day? When you post your #OOTD on Instagram, (come on, I know you're going to!) Hashtag Sofabulouslysweet so that I can see! 

As always, XO and Stay FAB! ~ Stormie

**I received samples courtesy of Derive Colognes to review. Even though these samples were given for my boyfriend David and I to review, all opinions are our own.**
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…

One trend that I have been obsessing over lately is the straw bag. You have probably seen this trend on your IG feed or through Pinterest. At first sight, I didn't think I would like this trend. The idea of straw itself made me itch lolz. But this once frumpy and overlooked handbag has been upgraded and I don't hate it! Whether you are in need of a crossbody or an evening bag, there are stylish straw options. Check out my top suggestions below!



I did a bit of searching and these are the ones that stood out to me the most. I l…
