Dancing into our weekend and feeling so very happy about it!! But seriously, if you’re grumpy go crank the music and dance your buns off – works for me on an almost daily basis! Ya know what else works on an almost daily basis?? Denim jackets! Game changer. They come in every fit, shade & style you can imagine! What’s your jam?? Distressed? Oversized? Clean lines? Light wash? GF I encourage you to find the perfect denim jacket and don’t be afraid to wear holes in the elbows – love it well and wear it often! And don’t forget to dance in it!! Style tip: don’t be afraid of a denim jacket, search for the one that offers you all things you hope for and go for it! Wear it with dresses, T-shirt’s, denim on denim, over a hoodie… I’m convinced there’s no wrong way! Happy Friday! ✨🌵

What if she could be saved BEFORE she enters a life of trafficking?! It is an honor to partner with @lovejusticeintl to bring awareness and opportunity to make a difference in the lives of people around the world! Did you know that 24-40 million people are in slavery around the world? That is absolutely horrific. LoveJusticeInternational steps in during the process of trafficking to rescue women BEFORE they’re tricked into a life of slavery. They have saved over 13,500 lives… YOU GUYS!! We have the chance to be the hands and feet of Jesus, even if that’s simply investing in & equipping people like LoveJustice to be able to continue to do their work! It costs a little over $100/month to save a life, to SAVE A LIFE! I am moved and shaken by this organization and hope you feel a tug in your heart to support them!
Why ‘Project Beautiful’?
“We believe every life is beautiful.
She is a child of God, and He knows her by name.
She is worth everything to Him.
She is not just a victim.
She is human. She is precious.
She deserves to be free.
Because every life is beautiful.”

Heeeyyyy yoooou guys!! My name’s Olivia… Liv, Livy, Olive, O… ya know, whatever ya feelin’! There are few things I don’t have much patients for – they include ants, my husbands video game marathons, fake people & diarrhea. I have to believe some of you can relate to at least one of those! Ps.
That was just for fun, I hope you laughed and didn’t unfollow me because I used an unladylike word… fake, def not diarrhea! (Sorry not sorry!) Now, for things about me that actually matter – I am a happy person (unless my kids are whining, then I want to hurt things), I have always really loved fashion! Not the cliche kind, the kind that pertains to real life and everyday women – like you. I chose to be a personal stylist because I care about women just tryin to be the truest, most confident version of themselves & we all know that when we feel good about our clothes it really helps a sista out. •
I love the idea of pets & have a major soft spot for bunnies, but most animals (the kind with fur) make my jaw itch – so weird. • I grew up as a country girl here in Michigan, the kind that swung over ponds holding onto weepy willow branches and catching tad poles in the ditches. I treasure my childhood and the 50 acres of land I grew up running around naked on! Relax, 50 acres means no one could see me & also I was like 5 – I just wanted to get ya riled up. • one of my most fav things (aside from fresh flowers in my house, coffee, wood fired pizza & the sun) is authentic, non-judgmental people. People who aren’t afraid to be completely true to who they are no matter who their company is. The kind of people that are the same in person & on their instagram, not trying to impress or cover up who they really are. • Lastly, I’m the weirdo in the movie theater by myself on a regular basis and there ain’t NO SHAME in my game!! • but for real, what you see is what you get with me – I’m glad you’re here hanging on my feed and I hope you thoroughly enjoy trolling to see what I’m all about. #thisisme

I was thinking about this sweet shoot I styled & I’m falling in love with it all over again! Look at the moment of that dress though!! 🤤 ••
I hope you guys had the best long weekend! I found the tastiest rainbow veggie + lime crema salad recipe that I’ll make for the rest of my life, suh gud! But the best part was having a sleepover with 2 of our besties @kelseyhettinga & her husband Tim. We made margs & watched a movie then they crashed in the guest room. Kelsey and I made coffee together in the morning, got ready & went shopping and then prepped food for a bbq with the rest of our besties! @kaleighdsimmons @amberannie @ @djorn0.
My heart is so filled up & so grateful for our little community of buddies! 📷: @helloimemmaquinn
