  1. This is my favorite! Love love love how you styled it! I have similar necklace and will be using your ideas!!

  2. I love the blazer/short outfit, too!!

    Is that skirt navy blue? Did you get it recently? I think I have the same one.

  3. This outfit is one of my favourite!

  4. I love both looks. When did you purchase the trench from New York and Company? I shop there often. I like the way you are styling clothes from other stores more. I really love what you do with the pencil skirt. I tried on a few, but hips are still to wide. I'll get there though.

    BTW, I follow you on your website as well as facebook. It is sometimes easier for me to get on your website while at work. Are you actually submitting information to both websites individually or are you able to cut and paste. Just wondering and wanting to let you know how much I truly appreciate ALL that you do. Since I've been on your FB, I've noticed some of my friends have gained an interest in your site.

  5. your are so cute lady! i love the belt i the second one :)

  6. Too funny! I used that exact outfit of Olivia's as an outfit inspiration in April. She provides good inspiration. Check my look out here:

  7. Olivia has the best looks. I could spend forever rummaging through her closet lol. Love your inspired look!

  8. Thanks everyone!! I love Olivia's style too.

    Erin, the skirt is navy blue. I got it a couple years ago, but I recently saw the same one in stores!

    Dpas, I got the trench last winter. It's part of their Red Label which I think is only online. Thanks so much for your support of the blog though! Right now, I post in both places (I don't have a system that does it automatically).
