Teal Bishop Sleeve Top
Hi there! It has been SO long since I’ve been able to sit down and write a blog post. To be honest, my new job has completely taken over my life and I literally have not had the energy or will power to blog. It’s been quite an adjustment period that is still not over, but I’m starting to gain my footing enough to miss blogging again.
Recently, a friend and old co-worker of mine reached out to me about the clothing company she works for, called Olivaceous. They’re a wholesale clothing brand based in Downtown Los Angeles, and I love their classic yet contemporary style. She was kind enough to send me a bunch of items from their Winter line, and I was so excited to put some looks together. I don’t know about you, but something about creating outfits is therapeutic and rewarding. It’s kind of like a fashion puzzle that you’re trying to piece together, with a bunch of different factors coming into play like your body type, personal style, budgetary restrictions, weather conditions, etc.
A lot of these looks are perfect for this time of year, especially with these storms that have been hitting LA lately. I swear, I love and hate this rain. I love that it's quenching the earth of its thirst but at the same time it makes getting everywhere so inconvenient, especially since I have to commute to Hollywood every day for work. But, I will say that whenever I feel confident going into the office, it makes the day a little less dreary. Call me simple or superficial, but I think whatever healthy way you can find to make yourself happy, go for it.
I have been so excited to wear these pieces throughout the week because they're all so versatile. I wore the mustard top to work with some black slacks, and then wore them with light blue denim that Sunday for church. And the plaid jacket has been great to bring an edgy touch into my work week, but then I'll I definitely dress it up with black patent leather heeled booties during the weekend.

Other than the richness of the color, the quality of the actual clothes was what also really impressed me. The tops are beautifully designed, not made of cheap thin fabric, and fit true to size (this is a big deal because clothes never fit me just right). The chunky cardigan is so soft, and the knitting is done well with thick material to keep you warm. And those suede pants are definitely my newest obsession! I wear them to work nearly every week, and I mean look at them...how could I not?! The adjustable strap makes them super comfortable, the suede material makes them unique, and the gray color makes them versatile to style with basically any top and jacket. I could ramble on and on but basically, I highly recommend anything from Olivaceous because the pieces are absolutely stunning!
Some people have already been commenting or DMing me about the pieces, so I wanted to write a separate blog post letting y’all know where you can find them since the brand is wholesale. You can check out their website and Instagram for more ideas on how to style their items, but here’s a list of the ones I wore in this post and where you can find them:

Suede Pants (in olive)
