ALL I WANT FOR CHRISTMAS

ALL I WANT FOR CHRISTMAS

All I want for Christmas is these two right by my side, always. The holidays are always a little nutty but add in a wild 1.5 year old "man" to the mix and its doubly nutty! Mr. Axel Hawk is always on the go, wanting to play with every stick and leaf left on the ground. He wants to climb walls and do front rolls on a regular basis and basically gets down and dirty all day, every day! I think we will ask Santa for a bundle of twigs for Christmas! That'll save all of his elves the hard work of making toys that don't keep his interest for long enough.

As sweet and loving as my little boy is, he's quite the handful, keeping mama and dada on our toes and definitely testing our patience here and there. BOYS will be BOYS! Am I right?! Though his wild and adventurous demeanor drives me a little bonkers at times, it also is one of my favorite things about him. He's a curious soul, who wants to experience all that life has to offer and that makes for one proud mama. Every new discovery is something that will stay with us forever. Axel Hawk, you are intelligent, generous, loving, weird and wild. A mix that I wouldn't trade for even one full night of sleep. Who needs sleep anyways?! 

Take a look at our family photo session below, showing the mood swings of a 1.5 year old and the love we, as parents have for each other and our little wild man.

Sweet November

Blogger, Family, StyleOlivia NicoleComment

November has been sweet. Being able to do what I love with the love and support of my family, there's nothing quite like the feeling. Not a day goes by where I don't think of how blessed I am to live the life that I live. To have an amazing man, who fully loves me for me. To have a wonderful baby boy, who looks at me every day with eyes of absolute love, admiration and trust. There's times when I wonder if I'm dreaming, or is this really my life? Each and every day, I look at those around me and realize that it is not a dream, but a dream come true.

Paradise City

Take me back, take me back to paradise...

Recently, my family hit the road to spend a week in a paradise known as Rosemary Beach/Alys Beach. Let me just say, it was pure magic! If you've never been, you should take a visit. The architecture is impeccable and the vibe is even better. Rad images just come easy with a shoot location like this and it doesn't hurt to have your love behind the lens (becoming quite the awesome photographer). Honest, this was the best vacation to date, why, you may ask?! Well because it was our baby boy, Axel's first vacay and we just had a blast! He loved the sand, sun, and people watching, because let me be real...my son is a little nosy boy. His curiosity is one of my favorite things. Be curious, my darlin'! Mama is curious too. Look at the world, appreciate it and be your true self, always.

The following looks were inspired by my surroundings and the happiness from within. Enjoy! 

Xx,

Versatile

Blogger, Photography, StyleOlivia NicoleComment

One top. Two ways.
In my most recent blog post titled "G R O W T H", this same top was worn, just another way. Funny enough, that way was backwards. For me, I love clothing that can be versatile. As a breastfeeding mama, I need to be able to cover up at times, and other times I need some easy access to the "TATAS". Hehe!
Since I am currently still breastfeeding, a brassiere is a must. You can always show a little "modesty" by rocking a bra under a low cut top such as this one.
This Bare Anthology top is perfect for whatever I need. Any occasion, I can dress it up or dress it down. It really doesn't get much better than that, right?
To create an urban vibe, which is what I'm all about, pair this killer top with a great pair of black and white striped trousers like these from ROMWE. Throw on some boots and a turban headband like this one from I'm With The Band, and you're good to go!

Oh MAMA

Blogger, StyleOlivia NicoleComment

When you're a bloggin' mama, comfort is key when styling looks. With an infant in my arms the majority of the day, my footsies need a break, so sneakers are a must! Overalls are a perfect piece for all of you breastfeeding mamas out there. Can you say, EASY ACCESS? All you have to do is unsnap and feed, at any moments notice. With my little chubby buddy eating every 2 hours, being able to easily nurse is the most important aspect to my wardrobe choices these days.

Who says that mamas can't be mega stylish? That's the farthest thing from the truth. Getting up and getting yourself looking your best is a great way to make yourself feel your very best. Mothers have busy lives, that's for sure, with little to no down time. With that being said, no matter how busy life can get with little ones, always, ALWAYS take the time to make yourself look and feel the way you deserve. Happy mama = happy baby.

Whether you're a mama or not, these can complete your wardrobe and fill any void of an amazing pair of overalls. Snag these rad overalls by clicking the link below!
