Blue Eyed Girl

Photography by Joelle Rosen

East coast to west, style is style and California boutique named Blue Eyed Girl knows good style! They carry only the best selection of brands and have such a beautiful aesthetic. Check them out! I had the most amazing experience working with them on this collaboration. When planning the looks, I had a vision in my mind of what I wanted to do with the looks and it came to life, here. You can shop each look below so take a look and enjoy!

The first look for Blue Eyed Girl is all about the good vibes mon'! "Jamaican me high" on life, that's for sure. There's nothing better than a good pair of white denim to round out the summer nicely and these 'McGuire' denim are the BEST JEANS EVER! I chose to pair those AMAZING jeans with a fun 'Mate The Label' tank that makes you feel as if you're in Jamaica, when you're really not. I like to keep a sweater handy for those cool nights that are hard to come by summers in Atlanta but 'Show Me Your Mumu' has got me covered wit the cutest striped sweater. Add a pair of pom earrings and cute sunnies and you're good to go!

For this look, I chose to wear this 'WILDFOX' sweater because let's be real, I'm a mama to a little boy...and mamas are ALWAYS TIRED! YAWN. I paired the rad sweater with some amazing cropped pants by 'Vince' and some pretty amazing 'Quay' shades! Wear it with boots or sneakers, you'll look too cool for school.

Ugh, this next look is such a dreamy look! This 'Misa' dress is flirty, with a great seventies style silhouette.  I paired it with a wide brim 'Brixton' hat with a beautifully dainty 'Vanessa Mooney' pom pom earring. This would be a great look to wear to an outdoor summer event, don't ya think?!

Last but certainly not least, I wore the swimsuit of your dreams! 'Flynn Skye' and 'Amuse Society' came together and created magic with this one! I love a good kimono over my swimsuits, especially when you're socializing or running around chasing a little guy. This 'Mate The Label' kimono is so dreamy, pun intended because DUH, it's clouds! The fabric is heavenly as well! I paired these beauties with this amazing 'Cleobella' bag, a hat and the perfect white sunnies! Summer time vibes, in full effect!

Now this is my kind of "little black dress" that's for sure. I love a good LBD, but this one takes my love over the top! Never in my life have I ever worn a dress that fits my style more than this little number. Black is MY color, but I love a good bold colorful statement to complete the look! This Sleeping Gypsy dress gives that to me all in one beautifully crafted dress! I could wear it every day, if you'd let me! Get your very own by shopping the link below. You know you want to.

SIN CITY

Blogger, Style, PhotographyOlivia NicoleComment

Last month, I spent some time in Las Vegas as a style ambassador for PROJECT at the Mandalay Bay Convention Center. All in all, it was a very successful trade show, allowing me to have the opportunity to meet and greet with brands and my fellow bloggers in the industry. Talk about being inspired!! Being around so many wonderfully talented individuals was mega inspiring and oh so good for my soul. Being away from my little dude (son Axel) for the first time was far from easy, but mama needed to recharge the creative juices. That is indeed what I did! Now I'm back home with my family and ready to work, all with my babe in tote! Watch out! Mama on the move!

Vegas is known as 'Sin City' because it is the home of various vices, legal and illegal. For some people, you come to vegas to booze and (most likely) lose your moolah. For me, I like to keep my money right where I can see it, on my baby, in my wallet, or hanging in my closet. Allowing myself a portion of my money to gamble during this trip, I hit the slots first chance I could, where I lost it all and gained it all back within about half an hour. That's the extent of my gambling "vice" during my trip to Vegas. That's enough sinning for this mama, with the exception of my biggest sin of all - sleeping through the night for the first time in almost 8 months! A well rested mama is rare, that's for sure. Long hours and late parties are not the usual 9pm bedtime that I've come accustom to, but oh so worth it!

Thank you to everyone who was involved with the #BloggerPROJECT this year! I hope to see you all again in August!
