Becoming a mother has caused for me to grow so much as a woman. It has given me the patience that I need in all aspects of life, and an indescribable amount of drive to continue to follow my dreams. My goal as a mother, is to raise my son with that kind of mindset. I want to always encourage him to follow his dreams, to find out what he loves and to encourage him to give it his all, no matter what. Whatever he chooses to be in life, we will be there to support him. If he comes to us one day and says "mom, dad, I want to move to New York City, we will pack up and move there as a family, all for him to be able to follow his dreams. I want to teach him that sometimes, when following a dream, there will be highs and lows, struggles and satisfactions, but all in all, if you're doing what you love, that's all that matters. That's a lesson that I still have trouble with from time to time. As a blogger, I find myself wrapped up in the things that don't matter, at times. Whether it be the amount of likes that I received on a photo, if someone "followed" or "unfollowed" me, or if there is a slow pace of improvement on followers gained on Instagram. These things don't matter, but I find myself over-analyzing these things from time to time and that's something that I'm working on for myself. What matters most of all is the love from my family. Putting my baby boy to sleep every night and waking up to those big blue eyes every morning, that's what matters. Being in the arms of the one I love, that's what matters. Knowing that my family is happy and healthy, that's what matters. Everything else doesn't even come close.

Until next time...

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!
