Don’t be predictable with your style, add splashes of unexpected color and print, a hair scarf or pair of earrings a little outside of your comfort zone. Even if no one else notices, do it for you! (Chances are they will notice and they’ll feel inspired by your guts to give it a go!) Add something that you love but have been too nervous to try – most of the time you’ll feel more excited and confident the longer you wear it. Style isn’t about a certain shirt or accessory, it’s a representation of who you are! What words would you choose to describe your style? How about the words you would use to describe your personality? There is rarely just one word for either because we aren’t defined by one element, we are intricate and wonderfully complex! Just as our wardrobes should be! 📷 @kaleighdsimmonsphoto

What happens in the quiet moments in your life? When you press pause on social media, when the tv goes dark and the only sound is your breathe, the only movement is your body in your cozy bed. I find myself in my most vulnerable form in those moments. When I reflect on my life – what I’ve suffered and accomplished, the areas in me I see growth and the areas I ache for freedom. When I let my heart wander through the opportunities I’ve been given to leave a simple reminder of Jesus’ love for someone who needed it & if I’ve been faithful in my calling to be His hands & His feet in this world. I know the quiet moments can be hard for so many people, anxieties sneak up so easy in the dark & quiet – A.W. Tozer said, ‘we need never to shout across the open spaces to an absent God. He is nearer than our own soul, closer than our most secret thought.’ Even further, God doesn’t run when we have a dark thought, struggle or emotion…He simply remains. I crave the quiet, maybe because I’m a mother of 3 and quiet is so rare around here but maybe because instead of fearing the quiet, I’ve learned to embrace the chance to sit & be present with a God who challenges me to grow beyond the limits I’ve set for myself and embrace who He created me to be. (((Be still & know that I am God. Psalm 46:10.)))

California bound in 2 days!! We are so ready for a taste of our west Coast home. Time is such a crazy thing, of course watching my kids grow with each passing moment is majorly bittersweet but it’s one of those things you really forget to seize until you’re reminded how much value it actually holds. Im pretty sure Weston has grown an inch since last week and it seems the baby in him just keeps fading everyday. (Insert Mom sobs here) I am SO ready to spend time with family & friends in Ca but a week to catch up after a year of time has passed never really fills that space of longing to be a part of their lives. Soaking in each moment of whatever season you’re in is so crucial! Being aware of the time and making strategic decisions means you never have to wish you did it differently, you’ll look back on moments in your life and your heart will feel full. Plus, the more that passes the older I get and… yeah, no thanks. Ps. Fall florals are killin’ me this year! So. Good.

I’m thankful tomorrow is Monday. I’m ready for a new week, another fresh start & another chance to make an ordinary week a memorable one. Too many weeks go by too quickly where I forget what I even did! I’m all about relaxing but I feel it all the way to my core that this season of my life isn’t simply for relaxing. It’s for investing, being intentional, operating outside of my comfort zone, pouring my heart into my dreams, my kids, my marriage, my church. This season of my life feels heavily strategic to my future, my career, my family, my spirit & my heart. I was challenged recently to focus on my emotional and spiritual needs more than I tend to focus on other people’s. Not in a ‘think about yourself and forget about those a-holes!’ Kind of way… more like, take the hint when your emotional investments aren’t healthy for you. Make some changes so that you’re positioned for success & not to get hit square in the heart by a fiery dart of emotional & spiritual turmoil. Maybe that seems obvious, but for me sometimes it takes more effort to remember to make sure that I’m in a healthy spot emotionally, spiritually & physically before I have anything healthy to offer anyone else & so that I am the best possible version of myself for my family, my business and for MYSELF. I’m feeling some deep things in my spirit this week & I’m excited to move forward with fresh perspective & a renewed mind! #hereiamsendme 📷 @kelseyhettinga

“Make the most of yourself by fanning the tiny, inner sparks of possibility into flames of achievement.” – Golda Meir

So, what is it?! What’s the tiny, inner spark of possibility living inside of you? It’s crazy that it’s such a normal thing for people to think they don’t have what it takes to see their sparks, their dreams, fanned into achievements. I was one of those people until I really understood that there are others who need me and what I have to offer, my dreams aren’t limited only to my success. There have been people along the way that I have desperately needed to help me with my spark too! I need the people who are great at organization, who’s talents are marketing, social media and web developing; people whose dreams look so different from mine but were such an important part of fanning my possibility into achievement. And each of those people didn’t make great achievements on their own either, so remember that you’re not alone! There is a network of people that can help you bring those dreams, those sparks of possibility to life! It’s so much easier to believe in yourself when you have so many others who believe in you, want to help you and who need what you have offer! 📷 @kelseyhettinga

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 good t-shirt (or 30) is a necessary staple in your wardrobe! Solids, of coarse! Prints, especially florals, are a must! And a few with graphics… yuuuuppp! Easy to dress up, always comfy and inexpensive to add for a quick shopping fix and pick me up. Now go buy a t-shirt, dang it! Photo: @kelseyhettinga .

Sometimes I like to work out, like in this photo. You probably can’t tell that it’s taking every ounce of core strength I have to sit on that ledge & not fall off! Is it silly I was sore the next day!? Guess I should do more crunch-es & less crunch-ing… 🍟Siiigh. Side note, these mules are my fav! And also, happy Friday!
