Olive for President!

On this auspicious day, our country’s esteemed celebration of independence and backyard BBQs and fireflies and fireworks and a nice hot summer day off from work – I would like to offer my brilliant services as future president.

Yes, that’s right dear readers – a vote for Olive is a vote for fun!

I intend to run on a platform of dance parties, good manners and fashionable footwear. Now – wouldn’t you campaign for a gal that espouses such valid values?

If I were to win, to become the very first female president of the good U.S of A. you can count on the following:

– A return to chivalry. Men must pull out chairs, open doors and lay down coats across mud puddles for all ladies.
– A very nice pair of comfy but stylish shoes on every foot.
– Mandatory nice manners. Please and thank you.
– Mandatory kindness and gentleness and goodnaturedness to all your neighbors, at all times.
– Mandatory dancing. Everywhere, any time. Boogie down America!
– And peace, love, and adventure for all!

Happy Fourth my sweets!

Olive Live: Candy Striped for 4th of July

Hoorah!

It is that time of year again –  the perfect moment for backyard burgers and hot summer bonfires and downtown parades and sailing the high seas and fishing the wharf dock and lounging by the lake and catching fireflies and camping and cavorting and in general – grabbing the season for all it’s got!

I have just the ensemble for any one of these adventures and more, whether you’re boarding the yacht, or making S’mores!

First – a sweet scarf, then flirty navy blue Capri pants (in honor of my sailor man)… and add some stripes galore! Red and white is just the thing for seaside rendezvous and firework Fourth of July picnics.  Top it all off with a pair of sassy espadrilles and you are all set for those unforgettable months between June and September, when the skies are blue and the days are long and the nights are full of promise!

Happy summer dear readers and a fashionable salute to all of you celebrating Independence Day in the U.S. of A!
