Make sure you’ve got a great nude summery heel for all of your warm water outfits! Every time you turn around you’ll be wanting to grab them! My favorite styling bit about nude heels: they make your legs appear longer because they’re less of a contrast to your skin tone and don’t make your foot look cut off from the rest of your leg! Sorry for that ‘cut off’ visual but also you’re welcome. Happy nudie tip day! .

When I first approached a few local bloggers about an event concept I had, I didn’t anticipate the beauty that would come from it. Local creatives meeting each other for the first time face-to-face instead of just over Instagram, being able to feature apparel & accessories from around Grand Rapids, and even being the soft opening at an incredible new sandwich shop @grainsandwichshop to help promote their opening. It’s awesome to see how many people are impacted for good when you go after an idea, invest your whole heart & let the Lord lead.
Working with so many local shops & creatives was such an enlivening experience! Plus, connecting with my local community & building a network for each person to connect & grow was the coolest thing to watch! I walked away from the @meetcutecommunity event proud of what had been accomplished & proud of the fact that we created a space for local growth!
This (majorly) awesome faux fur jacket is from local shop @blcklamb & the beauty I styled it on is @rachelgabes – she’s an incredible photographer, guys! But aside from that she’s kind, sincere, relatable and hearing her story was so inspiring! Thanks for coming and letting me style you in this sassy number, Rachel! ❤️

This has been a funky week. I’ve had a sore throat for the last 5 days, I still feel like I’m settling back in to our normal after being on vacation & I’ve just felt a little off. I’m certain you guys can relate with weeks like this, too.
It’s one of those weeks I feel like I just need a really good (ugly) cry, all of the cozy things in the world and a day to process some deep feelings that I’m having about stuff going on in my world. I appreciate that God allows us to feel things, process them, go through the motions and then He helps us pick up the pieces and begin to rebuild. Wether it’s just an emotional week or it’s a major life battle; they’re the same to Him. He cares about the smaller, hard moments & days just as much as He cares about the hard years & lifelong battles that some people face.

Lamentations 3:22 “The steadfast love of the Lord never ceases; his mercies never come to an end; they are new every morning.” _______________
Airport apparel. Cozy + easy is the only way! Also, all the chenille sweaters floating around right now are the comfiest!! This one is from @zara & I’m rarely not wearing it… even when I’m sleeping I’m wearing it, I’m not kidding. Ps. Socks borrowed from my 6 year old daughter, thanks Delaney!

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.

I thought I would share a little about myself and my babes with you all!
My name is Olivia, I am 30 years old & grew up in a small town in Michigan! I moved to California when I graduation high school in 2005 where I was exposed to the ocean, the magic of avocados & the best burritos on earth! The first week in California I met my husband, Scott. We will be married 10 years this fall! 😍
My first job in SD was at Starbucks and I quickly stared a 2 year Bible school program through our local church. After that, I went after my degree in fashion business. Scott & I got married in 2007 and welcomed our honeymoon baby, Ryder, in 2008. I decided to become a birth doula after my own great birthing experience and did that for about 5 years & cried every single time a sweet babe made their entrance into their family’s arms! I also welcomed baby #2 of my own during that time, my only daughter Delaney.
I got pregnant with my son Weston 3 year later and after he was born we made the bittersweet decision to leave our lives in SD & move to Michigan to spend a season closer to our family in a Michigan & get a good taste of all 4 seasons.
We arrived late June, 2015 and by August I was working at anthropologie so I could meet some new friends, it worked! Yay! We bought our first home, a great church @newchapel & started connecting to the community.
A year & a half later I finally decided to pursue a career in fashion by launching my own personal styling & image consulting business, LivStyled. Today, about 5 months later I’ve had consistent clients and tons of learning opportunities! This job & I were meant to be, I just had to wait on the Lord to show me the right time. 9 years after I graduated fashion school I am excitedly starting my career & I never imagined it would be my own business!
I am so happy to be able to share a small piece of my life with you all. Our lives are what we make them, taking chances & trusting the process has been hard but with God’s grace it has proven to be so rewarding & full of surprises! Cheers to the future, to mine and to yours!
