Live Olive: Rock The Boat

Ahoy my adventurous shipmates! Come aboard this grand vessel called the Internet and join me for a high seas adventure!?

As you all know, I am very at home on the waves, hoisting the sails and gunning the engines and swabbing the decks too. It’s no mistake that I am in love with a sailor man, as boats, and all that goes with them, is in my very blood.

I am a seaside gal, after all.

That’s why these styles, which I am so pleased to don today, really hit me close to the heart. My dears, behold Olive Looks! An array of sweet dockside beauties that provide the perfect pairings for sand, salt, and of course – ships of all sorts!

Tugs, cruise liners, sailboats and canoes, no matter! These fashions look great anywhere.

From the deep black military-inspired blouse, replete with  flowy, “good ship lollipop” innocence, to the linen culottes, this is my fav outfit to date.

Just the thing to go from dockside to dinner, the perfect late July ensemble! Add a vintage black leather tote and classic boat shoes  and you’ve got style fit for shopping, summering and stowing away!

Live Olive: June Jumper

Let’s polka!

You know me, my dears – I am, have always been and will always be, just a straight-up smack dab sucker for a polka dot – no matter what the occasion.

This sweet June romper is the absolute perfect one piece for those hot days ahead, a black and white frilly little number topped off with an utterly innocent pure white bow. But while it might be schoolgirl on top, this romper has a flashy short shorts style below that shows off my long lean legs…and very nicely too, thank you very much.

Add a classic patent leather pump and you’ve got my flirtiest ensemble to date – a fun, playful, barely there, body accentuating look, that suits the summer me just right.

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!

Live Olive: Spring Safari

Lions and Cheetahs and Rhinos, oh my!

Just take a gander at these select looks, just the right fashion forward pieces to pack for a smashing safari! Imagine donning these duds for zebra sightings and giraffe gallivanting and cooking s’mores by the fireside light.

The lovely stylist Courtney Lowe has done it again – creating a variety of styles to strut both out on the plains and while swashbuckling through jungles – of wild or the urban kind!
