Olivia's Butterfly


I hope everyone had a great weekend! I was an absolute bum all weekend and I loved every second of it! When you're a mom of 3 kids, it's hard to find down time. My hubby was off from work this entire weekend and was kind enough to give me a break from the kiddies for a little bit. 

You know that giddy feeling you get when you discover a new store that you've never shopped before? Well, I had that same feeling when I stumbled on Olivia's Butterfly on Etsy.  As many of you know, Etsy is not the most navigable site on the internet. There are literally thousands of different shops with no easy way to filter through them all. Most of my favorite vintage pieces were discovered after hours scouring the site. Luckily, you can save some of your time scouring through Etsy and add Olivia's Butterfly to your favorite shops list!   Olivia's Butterfly is a vintage shop whose pieces consist of colorful, bold print and edgy designs with a lot of personality. She carries items for petite and full-figured women.  When I saw this vintage skirt suit, I knew I had to have it as I'm all about bold colors and especially stripes.  The suit is a medium but has amazing stretch. I'm loving the military buttons and the shoulder pads! Since the suit has a lot of spunk, I decided to style my hair accordingly opting for a side coif with spiral curls that I picked out with a comb. Also, it was completely coincidental that I had these amazing ASOS court pumps that match the green in the suit to a T! Pat on the back for Izzy!
