I LOVE working in wardrobes! So much of the time I start going through someone’s wardrobe and discover their comfort zone clothes and then a few splashes of major inspiration about what they would reeeaally like their personal style to be. I mean coming across leather vests and fur in a more conservative closet is my faaaaaav! I am so grateful that my clients trust me, I stretch them to dive into clothes that make them feel alive vs comfortable. (Although comfort is always an element of my styling too!) The response is usually, “I had no idea I could do this!” They feel empowered, beautiful, excited and actually look forward to getting dressed.
You can always let your comfort zone and edgy side mingle by mixing pieces that highlight who you are as well as how you feel! An example is this photo – a tunic length button up over an asymmetrical tank & distressed denim. An unlikely pair that when put together, create a style unique to you! Don’t be afraid to be you and express yourself through your clothing! And if you aren’t really sure who you want to be with your wardrobe selection I can help you discover your personal style and build a wardrobe to reflect it.

Thinking about layering up for fall isn’t a pleasant thought for me just yet. Maybe it’s the California in me. I would happily take the sunshine all year long! Although if you give me another month or two I’ll probably feel differently because even if it’s the sunshine I want, layering is SO much fun!

Sundays, I love you. Church this morning was nuts. I was so challenged and so inspired and SO grateful for a church that hits me square in the heart with straight up Bible! We forget that crap happens to everyone & not just us, it’s a normal part of life. The Bible doesn’t say that trouble wont come, it says, ‘when trials comes’ and then it offers us strategies to walk through it rather than get stuck in it. The enemy just loves to make us feel isolated and alone and if he can trap us there then he wins. Knowing what the Bible says about a God who fight with us & for us changes our fear reactions to a faith response. I needed that today! @newchapel Grand Rapids is the bomb.com & you should come if you need some major encouraging!

These guys keep me on my toes! Not only in case I need to tap into my inner Wonder Woman to catch them mid fall or activate my laser vision to remind them I can most definitely see everything, at all times… but also with my wardrobe! (Anticlimactic?! It’ll always come back to the wardrobe with me, I mean c’mon! I’m a stylist!) I want to be able to wear the cute dresses and heels and white too!! I think a lot of moms think those options are entirely unavailable with little, messy monsters running in circles in around them. But I’ve got a trick or 2 that say otherwise! Moms, I know you can feel like your identity gets lost in the shuffle of motherhood! One of the things that’s kept me feeling like ME, Olivia, with my own identity and desires is being able to feel good about myself. Feeling like I’m not destined to be a frump or wear the not-so-trendy kind of mom jeans. But I CAN dress trendy and wear the things I love in ways that make them practical for my lifestyle! If you need some help mamas, that’s why I’m here! I get you!! Email me and we can set up a time to chat about it and get to work on your style! Oliviajanae.stylist@gmail.com

He didn’t get a picture after I ate, if he had it would have been my head thrown back 2 feet and belly laughing. It would have been ugly kids!! But joyful none the less! Ps. If you live in GR head to Butchers Union, you’ll thank me!

If you didn’t know already, I love mixing pattern & texture! It’s just so much goodness for the eyes to behold!! Yeeaaah and this is the same scarf from my previous post about mixing patterns – peek back a few posts and look how different the two looks are but how well the same scarf compliments each outfit! This little guy took a smooth dive into the go-to section of my closet, love when that happens!! Did you know you can have accessories that fit better into your 80% key pieces & not only into your 20% statement pieces?! (That’s for those girls whose like a carefully curated closet!) accessories are easy to overlook but SO necessary to complete a wardrobe. If you want to find those perfect key pieces for your personal style, email me! Let’s go shopping!! Oliviajanae.stylist@gmail.com

A quick stop into the @thesaltedcupcake is the best choice you’ll ever make. (Ok maaaayyybe that’s a tad extreme, but I’m not totally convinced it’s not still the truth!) The flavors, the ambiance, the quaintness & sweetness make it such a fun experience! And they didn’t even tell me to say all of this!! Do yourself a favor and go get a cupcake! They’re closed on Monday’s which is the pits since it’s always on a Monday I need a cupcake-pick-me-up but I just keep daydreaming of them until Tuesday rolls around! They’re the best cupcakes I’ve ever eaten & the flavors are so creative & fun! Ps. I shrunk those pants… 😩

It can be tricky to find those little details in your personal style that really make you feel great about what you’ve got on and that make your style yours. It was by accident that I discovered how much I love mixing patterns that some people might think don’t actually work well together. (This is one of those, ‘I don’t care what you think, I feel great!’ situations.) Patterns have the potential to accommodate each other so nicely as well as add an extra element of fun to your look! So go for it!! See what patterns work in your wardrobe and then send me a picture of what you come up with! I wanna see makes you feel beautiful & excited about your style! Ps. Shout out to those peonies because, woah. So pretty. 📷 @kelseyhettinga —————-
