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!

FALLing in Love

Style, Motherhood, BloggerOlivia NicoleComment

Fall is in the air, and I can feel it! Even though it's technically still hot hot hot, the cool air is definitely coming! There's something that changes in the air when fall is approaching. Everyone seems to have a little more "pep in their step", don't ya think? There's nothing like that feeling I get when I first begin to see the changing leaves and feel the slight cool breeze that makes you just want to throw on a light jacket or a knit sweater. I am forever falling in love with FALL, year after year!

As an on-the-go mama, a functional diaper bag is the most important accessory, that's for sure. It's absolutely necessary to have a diaper bag that can hold all of the essentials, and then some. As a mom, you can never have too much "stuff". You really just never know when you might need that extra pacifier or outfit for your little one, or one for yourself for that matter. Throughout the day, you may have a spit up filled blouse, a pee pee filled onesie, or if you're really LUCKY, a poo poo filled onesie (for all of those up-the-back explosion "accidents") that babies tend to have. The moral of the story is, as a mama you need it all. If you think you don't need to bring something with you, you'll be sorry. Bring it. Bring it all. You can never have too much! The Happ Brand Anna Hobo Diaper Bag has room for it all, with compartments for just about everything! For all of you mamas who like to have things organized in a very specific order, this bag is for you! There is a place for everything, from diapers to bottles, Happ Brand has got you covered with the perfect spaces to accommodate everything you MIGHT need for a day out with your babe.

Do you mamas ever stress out about placing your babe on public surfaces for all of those on the go diaper changes? Don't fret, Happ Brand once again has you covered. The Anna Hobo Diaper Bag also comes packed with a perfectly sized changing pad to relieve your sanitation stress. How could you go wrong with a bag that thinks of everything a mother might need during her day? Everything has a place, creating less time digging through your bag searching for that diaper that you need on the spot.

Head on over to snag this amazing diaper bag by clicking the link below. Also make sure the check out the other awesome styles to choose from! CLICK BELOW!

If nursing convenience is of importance to you, as an on-the-go mama you definitely also need to check out Loyal Hana. This Cybelle - Navy Angles Loyal Hana Dress is perfect for all of those on-the-go feedings, as there are perfectly placed side seams with hidden zippers for easy access to fill up your little babe while out and about. Loyal Hana has nursing mothers in mind when designing their collections, thinking of easy access and convenience that mamas need when taking their little babe out on the town, while still looking their very best!

Wear Your Babe

Baby, Blogger, Family, MotherhoodOlivia NicoleComment

Have a colicky baby that seems to just want to eat all day every day, giving you little to no breaks? Hold them close with Beluga Baby to ease their gassy tummies and give them the feeling of being back in the cozy womb that they became so accustomed to for 40 weeks. Trust me, your baby is your best accessory, without a doubt, so wear him in style with a wrap that carries both fashion and function. The Beluga Baby wrap is made to hold your baby close to your heart, while also having your hands free to do all of your motherly deeds, work from home, or even just have the time to eat your breakfast in between his normal feedings. With colic, I have found that Axel likes to be close to me most of the days, and what better way to have him close than to be wrapped up right where he loves to be most of all (on my chest). Since wrapping him up, the colicky behavior is visibly much better, giving mama the appropriate breaks to provide him with a proper supply of milk to fill up his growing belly.

Make sure to grab one for you and your little babe by clicking the link below! Also before you wear your little babe, make sure you know how to safely wear him/her beforehand by watching the "HOW TO WRAP TUTORIAL" videos.

Labor of Love

Blogger, Collaboration, Family, Lookbook, Motherhood, Photography, Style, VintageOlivia NicoleComment

Labor Day means that summer is coming to an end and fall is right around the corner. This means that the heat wave is ending and layering up soon begins. It means football, festivals, hammocks and family picnics galore!

What's a better way to spend this Labor Day than picnicking with my family? I can't think of anything better quite honestly. It sounds pretty darn perfect to me. This weekend, you could find us frolicking through the park and enjoying a delightful first picnic as a family of three. It's been a LABOR DAY OF LOVE!

Now lets talk about these radical hats that we are rocking! We had the recent pleasure of collaborating with STETSON (YES! #ItsAStetson) and how freaking cool is that?! It's been an absolute honor collaborating with the brand that created my obsession with hats. When you think of a Stetson, you think American classic! You think iconic! As they say, "Stetson, it's not just A hat, it's THE hat!"

AXEL HAWK FOR MINI MISCHIEF

Olivia NicoleComment

A wanderer. A lover of natures sights and sounds. An explorer. A traveling soul.
An absolute blessing. Axel Hawk. My bohemian baby.

Tomorrow marks one month since the day he was born. One month doesn't seem like a long time, but when it's your own child, it seems to fly by. Since birth, my baby bird has been quite the "outdoors man"! As a lover of being outdoors, listening to the sounds and viewing natures beautiful colors seems to soothe my baby boy beyond belief. He is already one with nature, taking after his mama and papa, appreciating and respecting all that is given to us in life.

Dressed for a day of wandering through life, finding new curiosities with eyes full of wonder, Axel is ready to see the world. This Short Sleeve Black Grid Raglan and Green Mountain Leggings by Noe & Zoe can be found at Mini Mischief, a local business in Decatur, GA, providing rad clothing for the curious little ones. They have an amazing collection of playful, fun-loving and comfortable pieces for your baby and/or toddler with a bohemian spirit. Not only do they carry the coolest selection, but they also have a strong appreciation for carrying brands that design items made of organic cottons and ink dyes without chemicals. It really doesn't get much better than that! We want the very best for our children and Mini Mischief appreciates that in all aspects of the word!

Get out there and EXPLORE!
