Because fishnets and a little bubble sleeve make the world a better place! Well, my world anyways! Maybe plaid or stilettos make your world a better place! That’s the beauty of this style thing, we all have things that make us feel beautiful and express our individuality! There are ways to incorporate styles/trends outside of your comfort zone into your wardrobe in a really comfortable way. I love helping women discover their style & it’s just so much easier done when you understand your body type, fabrics & colors that works best for you. Those are things that I love to help my clients understand! I not only work one on one, I’ve had the honor to be able to speak to rooms of women that all struggle with the same things… positive body image, frustration over getting dressed or shopping, understanding how to best dress their body type and I would love to do so much more of that! If you have a need/want for a styling workshop or body type workshop please contact me! I would love to help!

We had our first Christmas party this week and it was so much fun! (Yes, it was before December 1st & I totally appreciated it!) It launched me into Christmas mode & got me thinking about all of the magical moments that will unfold over the next few weeks – Christmas packages arriving, coffee visits next to a softly lit Christmas tree, baking sugar cookies & balsam scented candles, kids asking (relentlessly) when Santa will make his appearance & hopefully some sparkling snow! Happy December!! 📷 @kelseyhettinga .

Have you guys seen the selection of tees at @anthropologie right now?! Every french saying you can imagine and they’re all as soft as buttuh on the bod! This one is my favorite, it quickly became a staple in my wardrobe! My favorite thing about graphic+saying tees is all the ways to style them! This oldie-but-goodie leather jacket & necktie are an easy option to elevate the tee. (Especially if you’re a sleepy mom like me and have to fool all the people that you’ve got yourself put together!) —
If you love the graphic tee look but you aren’t sure how to style it, I want to help! Styling current wardrobes is my jam, seriously – the challenge of creating refreshed styles in an existing wardrobe is what I live for! Here’s a great client quote for you, “I actually spend less on new clothes since I’ve hired you to style my wardrobe because there are so many styles in my closet I never knew were there!” I’m ready when you are! Let’s get you ready for this cold weather and the dreamy holiday season! —
Email or DM me for available sessions before thanksgiving! Oliviajanae.stylist@gmail.com
Or take a look through my website and send me an email with the contact me link!

When twirling goes skateboarding.
Here’s a rainy day Friday quote for ya that has me feeling challenged and inspired: “True hospitality is when someone leaves your house feeling better about themselves, not better about you.” Shaun Niequist ❤️ @thecozinessconsultant is the BEST at this, I always feel poured into and surrounded by cozy, real love!

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’ve been called #cruelladevil once or twice while wearing these shoes and I didn’t mind it one bit! Plus, they are one of my top thrift store finds to date!
