Rainy in San Diego

Sweater: Tommy Hilfiger // Vest: Gentle Fawn, Also have & love this one // Boots: Chinese Laundry (Exact), Similar Here // Bag: ASOS // Skirt: Gentle Fawn

I have to say, it doesn't rain much in San Diego but at the rare occasion it does, I am quick to pull out my go-to over the knee boots, tights and some knits since I really never get to wear enough of some of these items -- especially the boots ladies, I'm obsessed!! Forgive my hair in the photos -- this past weekend was literally 3 days straight of rain so at that one moment we saw where it was only sprinkling slightly we would run out to shoot a few of these photos. Needless to say, the rain got my hair and well... flat it went :) 

Love, Olia

My Go-To Girlie Hairstyle

Big thanks to Suave Professionals for sponsoring this post. easy three step hairstyle
When it comes down to it, I'm a total girlie girl. I love dresses, lots of pink, bright lipstick, voluminous hair and just embodying that feminine ME! Today I wanted to show you guys a super simple hairstyle that I do on the regular that always makes me feel extra girlie. I've especially been loving it ever since I cut my hair short. It's flirty and feminine and I just think it's perfect for that special date night. What works best with this look is great hold so as you will see above I'm using the Suave Professionals® Luxe Style Infusion Volumizing Plump Hold Hairspray which I'm loving. It gives 24 hour hold without being sticky or hard. Hope you all enjoy this hairstyle and make sure to "PIN" the look!

• NEW Suave Professionals® Luxe Style Infusion is a luxurious line of salon-inspired styling products that allow women to “#Style It Yourself”, or “#SIY,” and get the salon looks they love at home every day.

My Life in Photos

This post is part of a social shopper marketing insight campaign with Pollinate Media Group® and timeshel, but all my opinions are my own. #pmedia #timeshelprints

If you guys follow me here then you obviously know I like taking pictures for work. If you follow me anywhere else then you know I love taking pictures for fun. With how many photos I take, I often struggle with them getting lost in the mix and I was searching for a way to easily print my most memorable photos and then I discovered timeshel!

timeshel is a subscription service that starts at just $5.95 per month however there are two levels of subscription available to you. You can receive 10 prints a month in a nifty envelop for $5.95/month or 30 prints a month received in a shel (as pictured above) for $14.95/month. timeshel is available for free iOs download in the Apple Store. I just like to shoot my typical day to day activities and love sharing it with the world! Sometimes I want to take these photos off my phone and into my hands and timeshel makes that possible with so little effort or time needed on my end! I printed some square photos and regular sizes and timeshel printed exactly as the photo was pictured -- I didn't have to do any cropping or editing making my life so much easier and all photos turned out such high quality!

I highly recommend you guys check out their amazing app and give it a try!! Being able to hold on to these memories truly is priceless!!

Gearing up for Vacation in Swimwear!

Big thanks to Target for sponsoring this post.

Cover Up (Available at Target) More styles/colors here.

We are headed to our annual (or should I say semi-annual) trip to our home in the Caribbean and I am gearing up with my latest swimwear finds! Since I'm lucky enough to live in San Diego, you can find me in a swimsuit most of the time (although now that I'm a working woman it's not as much as it used to be!). I've always been a fan of switching up tops and bottoms and not being so "matchy-matchy." When it comes to swimwear (and fashion in general) it's so fun to play around with trends, colors and prints! Today I mixed things up by pairing these crochet bottoms with a bright orange top and threw on this kimono cardigan as a little cover up and love the way it turned out, plus I felt totally comfortable! And lets be real -- posting photos of myself in a bikini for thousands of people to see is NOT the easiest thing in the world but as long as I'm comfortable in my own skin and in what I'm wearing then I'm happy to flaunt it for you all on the daily ;)
