When you think of your happiest, most confident clothes – what triggers that inward exhilaration for you? Color? Texture? Bold print? Clean lines? Simplicity? There are so many, many things that contribute to our personal style but the most important of them all is how you feel in what you’re wearing! If you only wore what made you FEEL AMAZING then your style would take shape all on its own because confidence would emerge! When we feel frustrated and insecure in our clothes the total opposite happens, we feel unsure & insecure which translates too easily to awkwardness and constant self doubt. We carry ourselves differently and the cycle of self doubt gets fed. If you could wear one thing for the rest of your life (that’s not strictly lounge wear, that’s an obvi one!) what would it be? Does a color come to mind? Fabric? Print? Certain silhouette? Dive further into what it is about that thing that makes you FEEL secure & don’t let people or social pressures make you change your mind. Lean into that thing and start exploring it more! For me, I’d choose tshirts – I stopped telling myself they’re too boring and I started challenging myself to wear them more and style them differently simply because I felt good in them, now it’s a uniform! I feel confident, sexy, secure & totally myself when I wear one that I love! Take off your insecurity outfit and put on your confidence uniform! .

NEW story!! I’m a basics kind of gal 90% of the time. Not boring, basic – there’s a difference! Today I wore a basic outfit with a splash of print on my shoe then made a few simple changes to get ready for date night with my hubs! I also shared part of what goes into discovering your personal style! Personal style should be a combination of things that you’re interested in which could include lifestyle, music, color, minimalism, culture, family or values. Your style should also make you feel excited and interested in your own wardrobe! I love helping my clients discover and start to build their unique look! My story today is a little bit about my own style! .

It’s cold & all I want is the warm sun so I can stop taking 2 (yes, literally) hot showers a day to kick the chill that goes to my bones. Plus my skin is not happy with me about it either.
I guess I could stop getting iced coffee & wearing pants that are cropped so my ankles stay warm, that might help…
But somedays ya just gotta go with the crop because it rocks with the top, ya feelin’ me!? Welp, cats out of the bag with how smooth that last sentence was… I’m officially switching careers to becoming the new Cardi, I’ll just have (a lot) less cleavage. Happy freezing Wednesday. 📷 @kaleighdsimmonsphoto

Sweat pants, check. Ankle boots, always. (Pretend you see fishnets on those bare ankles, I couldn’t find mine. 🙄) Laying on the cold ground to get a picture of my legs all twisty and perched for a photo… well, sure! What the heck!

Red! Leopard print! Leather! Faux fur! 4 of my favorite things. 🤤@aliceandolivia is one of my favs for their eclectic vibes. I’m a texture and color person through & through! The more you mix the two the happier I am!

•Worry about loving yourself instead of loving the idea of other people loving you• Easier said than done sometimes, huh? We all strive for acceptance & validation – we were created with a need for those things! The problem is when we try and attain them by being someone we think others might love and are too insecure to be who we really are with fear of rejection.
I’m not funny enough. My teeth are too crooked. My house isn’t full of expensive things. I don’t wear designer brands so I’m not legit. Those are all lies I’ve had to overcome in my own life, things that have hindered me in the past from believing in who I am & what I’m capable of. Honestly, things I genuinely don’t care about anymore thanks to the grace of God! I am Olivia Fitzpatrick – first a wife, then a mother & lastly a stylist. I’m just a girl trying to live my best life – a life that leaves a legacy of honesty, kindness & inspiration. I hope to be a truer version of the love of Jesus than the Christians who think they’re worthy of throwing the first stone. I hope to be a relatable friend, mother, wife and business woman – a place others can find belonging & encouragement. My dream isn’t to be a famous stylist; my dream is to let the Lord work through me, my business & through my experience as a mom and simply hold on through the adventure! He is capable of doing more with my life than I could ever hope, dream or imagine! My only concern these days is if I’m positioned and ready for Him to use at any moment, whether it’s in my kids lives, a strangers or in my work. I might not always love certain things about myself but I will give Him the room to help me see myself & others through His eyes to the best of my ability.

Thinking about the sunshine & missing it’s cozy, warm touch. Probably because I’m sitting in my car while my babe naps in his car seat and I’m surrounded by white sky poop aka snow – you can thank my kids for that sweet little description.
It’s always kind of nice when I’m forced into this position of patience and quiet while my sweet one is resting. I mean give me alone time & some soft music and it’s a recipe for self reflection, the older I get the more I realize how quick I am to go deep – I wonder why that is?! I guess I’m more willing to become aware of my shortcomings and let the Lord help me become someone better, self reflection isn’t always fun – the list of things to work on is endless, but it’s in this safe space where I can also give the Lord a chance to remind me of the areas I should be proud. Today I was reminded that growth is a lifelong process, it’s not making a decision today to be someone who’s got it all together and by tomorrow having it all figured out. It’s ok to let the process happen, to grow little by little and even let myself fail along the way – without letting it defeat me. One foot in front of the other, get back up, try again, change the strategy, let patience have its perfect work. I’m a work in progress & I am a-ok with that! 📷 @kelseyhettinga .

So, I went to Ulta today to buy some Christmas gifts. I had my littlest fella Weston with me, he’s 3 & obviously curious about everything he sets his big, round, puppy dog eyes on. Especially messy things, of course – in fact the messier, the better! By the time we left he had red lipstick smeared all over his face (I turned around for a second, I swear!), he had disassembled a lit display case – like actually removed the lightbulb from where it was attached (crazy thing is I was standing right next to him! I didn’t even look away this time!), he now smells like a male Gucci model but also a coconut and I managed to leave with 2 of the wrong things because I was more focused him than what I was buying. Christmas is the happiest season of all! Now who’s joining me for margaritas? 🤦🏼‍♀️ #Momlife 📷 @kelseyhettinga .

You know when you’re in a season of growth and moments of feeling overwhelmed sneak up & you’re not sure you have the capacity to grow anymore? I found myself in one of those moments recently, an extended one, actually… I hate when they do that! When they seem to linger for longer than they’re welcome. But it’s also in those moments, those seasons, that the need for inward growth becomes greater.
This season has been challenging! It’s amazing what the Lord will speak when you really pour your heart out to Him & let Him get closer. I found myself in the middle of worship at @newchapel pouring my heart out with expectation; James 4:8 says that if we draw near to God, He will draw near to us. He spoke one simple thing to my heart that morning and it was then that I understood this season I’m in – it’s an opportunity. A chance to let the Lord work in me to increase my capacity, refresh my spirit and give new vision for my family & business! If a business needs to grow strategically you better believe the people behind them do too! I’m amazed again & again at the goodness of God and how intentionally He works in our lives. So I’m soaking up this season of nearness to Him and excited for the things to come! 📷 @kelseyhettinga .
