Hey guys and dolls I’m so thrilled to be sharing this feature with all of you. As you probably know I’m a huge fan of Olan Rogers and Olan Rogers Apparel, but to be featuring pieces from the new fall line is extra special. Not only are the designs absolutely amazing, but the story behind them is something else entirely. Anyone who watches Olan’s videos knows this man is a complete and utter goof. Honestly its like watching a really large, happy, sugar high child tell a story. But it turns out behind all the hilarity Olan was having a really tough year. Like a lay awake at night have your troubles eat at you, tough year. However, instead of letting all the set backs and frustrations trap him, Olan channeled all that stress and negativity to create what I think to be his strongest line yet.
The entire fall line is about Going to War and not letting life knock you out. That’s definitely something I wanted to support. Because its something I could relate to, this past year has been depressing, maddening, exciting, and scary, sometimes all in the same day. However I learned I’m stronger and braver than I ever imagined. Sometimes life doesn’t pan out the way you planned or even busted your backside to make happen. Yet amazing things can still take place when you keep on truckin…and having some seriously cool uplifting styles never hurt either 😉
Look 1.Because why not just hang around in a tree during the middle of a photoshoot?
Shirt: Olan Rogers Apparel Yet again I’m in love with a baseball-T. But can you really blame me? The cut is flattering, the design is killer, and its soooooo soft. It’s like wearing hug honestly.
Jeans: Old Navy
Hoodie: Olan Rogers Apparel Thank heavens for hoodies. Its the closest thing to your blanket that’s acceptable to wear around in everyday life, and this particular hoodie may even rival my blanket in its comfort levels, its made from really sturdy cotton poly blend so its great at keeping the cold out, which I was super thankful because Texas went from 75 degrees to 50 overnight, and the design on this piece is so effortlessly cool. Oh and this hoodie is PERFECT for layering, so if you live somewhere like I do where the weather is totally bipolar having a good layering piece is an absolute must.
Jacket: Forever 21
Jeans: Old Navy
Look 3.Because throwing your hat at your photographer is must 😉My best bear impression.
Hat: Cotton On/Similar
Sweater: Olan Rogers Apparel This is the piece that started the entire collection and I have to admit its definitely my favorite. Which is saying something because I really love everything from the fall line. First off the design on this sweater is incredible! I mean who wouldn’t want a battle ready bear gracing their shirt? The stone color is so perfectly suited for fall and winter, the classic crewneck cut will never go out of style, and I wish there were words sufficient enough to describe how perfectly soft the inner lining is, maybe this is what its like to be that paper cone they wrap cotton candy around? Oh and if the softness wasn’t enough the warmth will be, its what I imagine swimming in a giant cup of coffee to be like…I think I must be tired, I’m associating everything with sugar and caffeine haha. But seriously this sweater is the best!

Skirt: Cotton On/Similar

I really hope you all enjoyed this post and that you check out Olan Rogers Apparel. This is a company I so wholeheartedly support, the people who run it are amazing, the designs are so fun and unique, every article of clothing I’ve received from them is insanely comfortable, and for every shirt sold a needy child is fed for the day! Now that is the kind of business I want to get behind.
Oh and on a side note the holidays are coming up and shopping for people can be really tough but I happen to think everybody would appreciate some Olan Rogers gear, don’t you? Happy Friday my loves.
