Oversized Sweater - Dress + Style Tips!

"Happiness is not something you postpone for the future; it is something you design for the present." ~ Jim Rohn
Hey sweetie pies! My apologies for not posting on the regular, I am having difficulties posting videos on my channel for you guys and it is totally giving me the blues. Is that reasonable excuse? Of course not, but it is the only excuse I really got so.... we are just going to roll with it. :) 

One thing I am all for is re-purposing items and wearing it multiple ways. You may remember this oversized chunky sweater from last year. But in case you are new around these parts I will give you the 411. This sweater (worn as a dress) was my boyfriend's. Key word in that sentence 'was', yes because I have adopted it and is now part of the So Fabulously Sweet archives. (No that doesn't really exist but you get the point) I love how big and cozy this is. I love that I can wear this with some leggings and Uggs and lounge around the house. Or I can opt for the sexier look by pairing it with my thigh high boots. 
This look is totally trending right now on many style stars and bloggers. The oversized distressed t-shirts and t-shirt dresses are being found everywhere. Paired with sneakers and boots alike, you can definitely rock the look. I do however have a few rules to keep in mind when rocking this trend. 

1. Make sure to wear the proper undergarments.
Don't be that girl who shows off all her assets. I always make sure to wear booty shorts underneath just in case. 

2. It does not have to be skin tight in order to look good.
I honestly prefer that mine fit a little loose to help give off the illusion of an actual dress. Wearing one that is too tight and possibly too short just looks like you forgot your pants - not a good look.

3. If you are going to wear a shirt dress, cover up elsewhere.
I have always believed that if you are going to have one part of the body exposed, then cover up elsewhere. If your legs are going to be out, then cover up top with a jacket or on the bottom with tights, leggings or boots. The only time I may break this rule is if it is really hot out or if I am going out. 
If you don't have the budget to go out and buy a t-shirt dress, raid your boyfriend, brother or dad's old wardrobe (which their permission of course) and revamp it! You can easily distress and bleach old graphic t shirts or use an old button up and belt it to make it more fitted to your taste. 

What do you ladies think of this look? Make sure to leave me a comment below sharing your thoughts!
As always, XO and Stay FAB! ~ Stormie J

**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…
