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.

Seeing Stripes

Blogger, StyleOlivia NicoleComment

I'm seeing stripes this spring, that's for sure! Stripes are definitely a timeless style and you'll see me wearing them a lot this spring/summer. Whether you keep it simple with neutrals, or rock the trend with a little color, stripes can create a "minimal-chic" look. Clean lines and bold stripes are all the rage and I'm all about it!

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!

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!"
