Happy Friday Everyone! Spring has put me in a pure bliss mood and got me jumping for joy with the longer hours of sunshine and the blossoming fresh flowers. In my previous blog post, I welcomed the season of Spring with a soft color palette, light weight fabrics, and scallop detailing. To further get into the spirit of Spring and celebrate the sunshine, I decided to bring a fresh color palette of white, baby blue, and a pop of yellow to this blog post. I pulled out my favorite baby blue gingham romper and paired it with heeled strappy sandals and delicate jewelry. Gingham has been one of my favorite go to fabrics lately. It gives me nostalgia of picnics on happy, warm, and sunny days. Nothing screams Spring like a luscious green back drop and a vibrant bouquet of yellow Gerber daisies in hand. I hope this post brought you a little excitement for the season of Spring. What screams Spring to you? Leave me a comment below so we can chit chat! Thank you for reading and I will talk to you soon! Enjoy your weekend! :)

Happy Easter Weekend Everyone! About two weeks ago, I took a mini road trip up to San Luis Obispo to bring my sister back to LA for a sister weekend bonding time. On our way back to LA, we decided to take a detour to a little Danish City called Solvang to get some brunch. My parents told me I have been to Solvang when I was a young child, but I recalled bits and pieces such as the seeing the big windmill while riding a surrey. I went back to re-trace my steps and re-live the memories. Although, it was a very "little" city, I felt like I was transported into Western Europe from the sight of dancers dressed in Danish clothing to Danish bakeries to the gift shops full of small trinkets to the traditional Denmark architecture. There was so much inspiration in each and every corner. Right by the famous big windmill, I came across this adorable bakery called "Solvang Bakery" that had the most angelic window display of cakes and sweets (as shown in the photos). The exterior of the bakery and the furniture was so intricate and darling. Everything about the bakery just seemed sweet and delightful. Which brings me to my outfit. :) Since Spring has sprung, I paired together a soft palette of blush and white with scalloped details. When I think of Spring, I get a sense of freshness and new beginnings. The scalloped details reminded me of flower petals which I thought was a great reminder of Spring. The time spent in Solvang was shorter than expected, so I would love to come back to this little city someday to explore a tad bit more and learn about the history. If you are looking for an activity or wander lusting in California, I would recommend to stop by Solvang. Walk around and explore or rent a surrey and explore! Thank you for reading! I hope you have an egg-cellent Easter weekend! Talk to you soon!

Bippity Boppity Boo! With a little bit of magic we have gone through another week. :) Happy Friday Everyone! As a big fan of  Disney and fairy tales, I was ecstatic when I found out one of my favorite designers, Lauren Conrad, did a collaboration with Disney's Cinderella movie for her Kohl's LC Lauren Conrad Collection. Lauren Conrad has a soft, adorable, yet timeless style so when I heard her collaboration with Disney's Cinderella movie, I knew it would be a dream. Indeed it was a dream come true and so much more! The whimsical collection consisted of a pastel color palette (baby pink, baby blue, white), tulle skirts, iconic symbols of Cinderella on t-shirts (castle, glass slipper, bippity boppity boo), and beautifully crafted dresses. I had to restrain myself from purchasing the whole collection. If you follow me on Instragram (@petiteolivia), you have already seen the two pieces I have bought. I had the chance to watch the Cinderella movie and I have to say Lauren Conrad really captured the essence of Cinderella. After watching the movie, I felt so inspired and drew up many ideas for my Cinderella shoot. The scenes such as the secret garden and Cinderella running away from the prince through the garden full of luscious green bushes gave me an idea for the shoot location. I thought the blue color of her dress was so vibrant and stood out from the greenery in the scenes. I grasped in some scenes Cinderella was wearing ribbons in her, so I incorporated that little detail in the look as well. I kept the look dreamy and soft with an off shoulder chiffon top. My version of sparkles and pixie dust in this look would be the accessories. Hurry and hop into your carriage before the all the pieces are sold out! Have a great weekend! I leave you with the words of Cinderella, "Have courage and be kind."

Happy St.Patty's Day Everyone! Over the years, I grew accustomed to wearing something green on St.Patrick's Day to avoid getting pinched. Regardless, I always enjoy getting in the spirit and celebrating holidays because it always give me an excuse to go that extra mile in dressing up! If you are not particularly fond of green, I recommend to pick a hue of green and even possibly try a monochromatic look! There are so many hues of green to choose from mint to dark forest green!
A few months ago, I spotted this darling Kelly Green dress and immediately thought it would be perfect for St. Patrick's Day. Everything about this dress really sold to me-the fit, shape, color, pockets, and the cut outs in the back. One thing I really LOVE is when a dress has pockets! Am I right ladies? Sometimes, I don't want to bring my bag so I found the pockets to be extremely convenient and also the cut outs in the back added a nice surprise to the dress. I paired the dress with black and gold colored accessories to resemble a pot of gold. Thank you for reading and I hope you all have a pinch proof day! Have a wonderful rest of the week and I will talk to you soon! :)

Happy Monday Everyone! To embrace my Chinese heritage, I want to wish everyone Happy Lunar New Year or in my culture we say Gung Hay Fat Choy (恭喜发财)! :) This holiday, is extremely close to my heart because it always reminds me the warmth of home, family and the delicious feast my dad prepares during this time. In honor or the Lunar New Year, I did a pairing for red and gold. Red is mainly worn throughout this holiday because it is believed that red will ward away the evil spirits and bad fortune. In addition, since the New Year signifies new beginnings new clothing is particularly worn on this day. With a new vibrant red romper I currently purchased that I am currently obsessed with, I transformed it into a top by simply tucking it into a metallic gold pleated skirt. Clever idea right? I love challenging myself to re-style certain items in multiple ways. It is like piecing together a puzzle to create a beautiful picture! I finished the rest of the look with gold accented baubles. Thank you for reading and I will talk to you soon! May the year of the Goat/Sheep bring you happiness, good fortune, and prosperity!
