In the beginning

My obligatory introduction post is as follows: I'm Olivia and I have a lot of nicknames. Olive is one of them. I keep up with several of my favorite personal style blogs on a daily basis and finally decided it was time to start my own documentation of style. I have this crazy idea that I'll make 5-6 posts a week to make up for lost time - so here it goes!

Dress: H&M, from Crossroads Trading Co.
Tights: Nordstrom
Shoes: Evans
Bag: Thrifted
Necklace: Cordial Kitten, from Renegade Craft Fair
Headband: Urban Outfitters

I just realized every size in this post is a size 4. The dress is a straight size 4 (crazy, I know), the tights are a plus size 4, and the shoes are a European size 4. Weird.


  1. i love this! would you mind telling me what brand those tights are?

  2. Nordstrom brand and only $10! I'm pretty sure they're not on the website, but if you go to an actual store location, they'll be in hosiery, in these oversized cabinets (they almost look like filing cabinets) that have tights inside the drawers. Oh, and they're all in large square packages. They have a few other styles - plain sheer, and ones with a seam going straight down the back of the thigh.

    Sorry for the long comment - haha. It took me about 30 minutes of walking around to figure out where these tights were. I hope you can find them easier than I did!

  3. OOh thanks for letting us know about the tights. I had seen some online but didn't want to order just a pair of tights. I go to Nordstrom and get some!

  4. I love the whole feel of the outfit! The necklace and tights are devine!

  5. You are suuper cute!

  6. I love your style and you have no idea how jealous I am that you have tights like that!

  7. This is also amazingly cute. I am so happy you started a blog!
