There’s something about a good romper in the summertime isn’t there? I mean, it’s easy and effortless and for those summer days that is truly what I want most. If you guys have been following me for some time, then you know my style if very – SoCal and laid back. As a San Diego style blogger, I like to present to you all practical outfits that I would really wear in my everyday life. Although there are those times I will opt for some high fashion items, I’m not a “typical” fashion blogger in the sense that I strive for high street style fashions if that makes sense. I’m all about easy pieces. Items that the every girl could wear and call me crazy but I think that’s what may make me somewhat relatable to most.

Especially in the Spring and Summer months, my style gets a LOT more simple. Think denim shorts, loose flowy tops and lots and lots of rompers. I think I’ve said it before but I will say it again. For those of you who always ask how I get my rompers to fit the way they do — I always size one size up! I am very particular about my clothing and in particular rompers. They can tend to be a little on the shorter side, ride up and sometimes just be a bit too form fitting than I would like. This actually brings me back to funny story — I remember my last trip to NYC I had a video shoot scheduled and I was going through wardrobe. They were trying to get me all dressed for my shoot and of course they wanted me to feel comfortable. They asked me what I liked and my first response was I don’t like super tight form fitting tops, I like a loose flowy feel, etc.. Literally the first thing that came spewing from their mouths? “Oh you must be from Cali aren’t you?” Apparently I’m a dead giveaway.

Regardless, this is MY style and my preference and it is not to say that everyone agrees with me! But to me, there is just nothing pretty about bending down in a romper and giving everyone a show. You know what I mean? For anyone looking however, this ASTR romper is one of my absolute favorite ones of the moment and every time I have worn it I have gotten compliments non stop. A total must!

In other non related fashion news, can someone please agree with me on this one thing…

OMG, Game of Thrones Finale?!

Don’t worry!!! I won’t be giving it away to anyone who is afraid to continue reading!! Just saying I can’t believe I have to wait 9 months for the next season. What am I going to do?!

BTW guys I just posted my latest video to YouTube so make sure you catch it here! And as usual don’t forget to subscribe to my channel for more videos!

#WineAnyday

Behind the Blog

This post brought to you by Torresella. The content and opinions expressed below are that of Love, Olia.

Torresella Wine-7 Torresella Wine-6 Torresella Wine-6 Torresella Wine Torresella Wine-4 Torresella Wine-8 Being French, it’s no surprise I’m a huge fan of wine, cheese and all that in between. I believe its important to indulge and enjoy life and the simple pleasures, I mean, who doesn’t?! I know I’m not alone when I say I work so hard during the week that sometimes it’s nice after a long day to kick off those shoes and enjoy a glass (or two) of wine. Although I love all kinds of wines (reds as well), I’m kind of into a white wine kick these days! When searching for the perfect wine recently, I came across Torresella Pinot Grigio and I have to say, Pinot Grigio is among one of my favorite white wines so I had to go for it! This Torresella one has such a clean, crisp taste and is exactly what I was looking for.

For me, nothing goes better with this wine in the afternoon (or evening) than some bread/crackers and cheese and some red grapes of course! Honestly, I literally could have this combination everyday for the rest of my life, and I think I’d be OK with it. It’s such a versatile drink that it could go for a variety of pairings, day parties and occasions in my opinion. Think of all those perfect instagrammable moments — #LadiesWhoBrunch, #WeekendVibes, #WineWednesdays, #SundayBrunch…

…Heck, why not #WineAnyday?!

Torresella has a strong commitment to the environment and is proud to utilize sustainable practices. Torresella leverages solar roof panels to self-sustain the majority of the vineyard’s power requirements, uses lightweight glass and Stelvin closures on the packaging and sell off excess C02 to reduce waste impact and employ modern farming and irrigation systems to reduce environmental impact.

Next time you guys are in search of that perfect afternoon pick me up or just want a great versatile drink for your next occasion, check out Torresella Pinot Grigio and thank me later.

Best Matte Lipstick

Beauty/ Makeup

best matte lipstick Lately, the craze is matte lipstick.

I guess, we can all thank Kylie Jenner for that.

Not going to lie, I kind of jumped on the bandwagon after seeing her pics and falling for all the colors she was wearing. Then, obviously had to go and buy her lip kit which was not an easy task seeing as how they are ALWAYS sold out. Even before that, I was buying a bunch of matte lipsticks and I was hooked. Today I wanted to round up my Kylie Matte Lip picks for you guys plus one awesome Smashbox color I’m currently obsessed with!

Now lets get to it…

The Smashbox Always On Liquid Lipstick is a great matte lipstick and comes in a variety of colors. I think I may have the whole collection and if you guys want to see a video I did wearing a bunch of the colors check it out on my YouTube channel here. It really does what it says — stays on all day and I’m addicted to a few of the colors in particular this first color below (Miss Conduct). It is such a beautiful deep red color that is so gorgeous for going out at night, I think!

best matte lipstick Now onto the Kylie Matte Lipsticks.

I’m literally obsessed with her line! I have to say, I was a little skeptical, because whenever celebrities come out with products I have to admit I usually am disappointed. They never are quite up to par in my book and I feel like the quality is never fantastic but it just has the “celebrity” name, if that makes sense. This however, is completely different.

I’m going to go out on a limb here and say that right now the Kylie Lipsticks are my favorite matte lipsticks of the moment. Let me tell you why. First of all — I have had a hard time finding particular colors I like. I am more of a pink/nude type of gal and usually I find a lot of browns and matte colors that I’m not in love with or think go with my skin tone. I purchased these 3 to try by chance and  loved every single one of them.

Next plus is they are actually very matte. Have you guys ever gone to buy a matte lipstick but it turns out to not be as matte as you wanted? So frustrating! These turn immediately matte and don’t give you any weird streaks or lines that some I have found do. Third, they come with a lip liner!! Seriously??? Thats like gold right there. Every color you get will have its own liner. So I line and then fill in my lips with the liner then apply 1 coat of the lipstick for a perfect application.

Only downfall? They are always sold out! I already want to purchase more but it’s so difficult to buy them!

Have you guys fallen in love with the matte lipstick trend?

What are your favorite brands?!

Sun kissed with CLUSE

Just because we all have cell phones these days still doesn’t mean timeless watches have gone out of style. In fact, I think they are more in than ever. With so many different styles these days, I can’t get enough and I’m always wearing some kind of a watch on my wrist. I’ve actually been a huge fan of CLUSE watches for some time and have worn them many times in the past so it’s no surprise I’m talking about them again!

Whether at the beach or out for a night out, a CLUSE watch truly brings out the best of your look and completes your outfit. They have SO many amazing styles to choose from and most of their watches have the most awesome click-on/click-off system which allows you to change the straps making them interchangeable. With the mesh straps you can can adjust the size of your watch as well which is great for people with small wrists like I have! With other traditional watches, I have to go somewhere and have them adjust the watch to my size and its really a pain. Knowing that I can adjust it all on my own is such a breeze.

CLUSE creates timepieces that represent elegance and minimalism, which in the end is what we all want. Check out their whole collection of watches here!

Top 5 Favorite Fragrances

Beauty

Top 5 Favorite Fragrances Sometimes being a girl is SO much work, right?! I mean, we have the hair, nails, skin, lashes and to add to it the endless decision of which fragrance to I wear?! Wait, how about which fragrance do I even BUY!? I mean, these days there are an endless selection of fragrances, how are we even supposed to know how to choose the right one?! Let’s not even get me started on testing out fragrances. I can only smell about 3 of them before all the smells get jumbled up in my nose and I have a big HUGE headache.

Can I get an Amen!?

Okay okay, maybe I’m a bit dramatic BUT I do have severe migraine headaches and I’m not joking about that part. I honestly have to limit my perfume testing abilities and go by word of mouth or honestly just try one or two at a time. It’s a real struggle. With that being said however, I’ve had a lot of experience and I decided why not round up my top 5 favorite fragrances of the moment for you all!? Hopefully I can save you a TON of time, and a horrible headache.

Enjoy!
