Olivia’s Tuesday LookBook: Olivia’s Style

Welcome to our first post in Olivia’s new series Olivia’s Tuesday LookBook.

Olivia’s Tuesday LookBook is a new children’s style series for Olivia’s Corner. Anyone is welcome to join in and we would love to have you! If you would like to know more please head over to the Olivia’s Tuesday LookBook page for more information.

To kick things off is the girl herself. This is Olivia’s Style. Now aged 10 Olivia has grown into her own style and now takes pleasure in picking her own outfits and window shopping for new clothes. Tall for her age she is now not only the same size shoe as me but is loving the fact she can now wear size 6-8 clothes from her favourite hunting ground, Primark! Despite opening up the options when looking for new clothes it also marks the end of an era. Olivia is no longer a baby but a girl on the cusp of figuring out life and forging her own way in the world.

So lets have a look at how she has been dressing over the years before my total involvement in her outfit choices is reduced to just being financial!

Olivia’s Style: Fancy Dress.

A lover of dressing up from a very young age Olivia has always had a love for dresses. The bigger, the poofier, the twirlier the better. At 3 she could be found in an array of princess dresses which became her staple outfits of choice for the longest time.

Olivia’s Style: School Uniform.

As she got older she transferred this love to her school uniform and insisted on wearing only pinafore dresses for school summer dresses. This has only changed recently to skirts due to no one stocking school dresses in her size anymore.

Over the years Olivia has experimented, a lot, and pushed the boundaries of my purse strings to add more and more dresses to her collection. Come rain or shine if she can wear a dress she will. No style ignored and no opportunity missed to kick back and throw a dress on.


If you were to ask Olivia what her dream dress would be she would tell you it has to be sparkly. And flowy and spin up when she twirls round or a maxi dress. Maxi dresses have been a staple in her wardrobe for the past two summers and her love of dresses that reach her ankles isn’t showing any sign of waning just yet!

olivia's style

As you can see Olivia accessories of choice tend to be a good old hairband or a little shrug for her shoulders. Occasionally there are leggings if it’s a bit on the chilly side but chances are she will opt for the “I’m freezing cold and have goosebumps” look!

So there we have it. Olivia’s go to style and her extensive collection of dresses! I would love for you to pop back next week for the first guest post in this series, hopefully the first of many!

    What a great idea for a series! Im dreading that day that my little girl will no longer let me dress her *sob*. It seems to be so much younger these days. I look at my nieces and nephews often in disbelief at how quickly they are growing. At the same time its great to seem them develop their independence 🙂 Emily #KCACOLS

    Such a shame they don’t do school dresses in her size, they always look much nicer than skirts (and they can’t be rolled up!) love that she wants a skirt that goes up when she twirls – that was always my requirement too!! #kcacols

    October 21, 2016 at 2:42 pm

    I love how she’s experimenting and finding her own style, but at the same time sort of sticking to the theme of dresses! My daughter is 2 and already loves dresses and skirts that she can twirl around in! x #KCACOLS

    How lovely that she is developing her own sense of style – I like a girl who knows what she wants! Don’t worry, it won’t be too long until she can contribute to her outfit choices financially…only like another 8 years…or more!! #KCACOLS

    This is so precious, and it looks like Olivia is really growing into her very own style! This is such a great series! My son is only 18 months old, so I’ve not thought much about the days when I won’t have much say in his wardrobe. They grow so quickly! Thanks for sharing <3 #KCACOLS

    Aww, she looks wonderful. It is lovely to see her style develop and her become so confident in her style. Booey is the same now, the only input I get is when I pay at the till lol.

    Aw love that less dress, it’s so pretty! This is so cute and will be lovely for Olivia to look back on as she gets older. It must be strange when your child starts to have their own sense of style- I’ve got a few years of being the dresser ahead of me yet! x #KCACOLS

    I think Olivia loves fashion and Primark as much as my eldest, 13, does! In fact, she has those same white Primark sandals I’ve spotted in the last photo. They grow up so fast, don’t they? Too fast! #KCACOLS

    Love it, Olivia is beautiful. My little girl also is a big fan of dresses and dressing up in general. I love that she has chosen one of Olivia’s faves to feature in her look book with her maxi dress. Looking forward to joining in, thanks. #KCACOLS

    Oh wow you can see her love of style and the confidence those dresses in particular give her through the pictures alone. Such an amazing time transitioning into a young women, she looks so cute and fashionable. My little girl is only 21 months but I have to give her a choice of two outfits including bedtime every single day. She is already very aware of what she wants to wear. Loved reading this post on a miserable Sunday! #KCAKOLS

  59. Angela Watling

    October 16, 2016 at 12:48 pm

    Lovely idea! Olivia will enjoy seeing her style recorded in years to come. She’s got a good eye for clothes (she should come and pick some out for me!) so she won’t even be embarrassed by how she used to dress like many of us are 🙂 #KCACOLS

    What a nice idea for a series – I will enjoy a preview of being a mother to a 10 year old girl. To be honest, I think Stella (2) will do a much better job of choosing her own outfits than her dad does at the moment… Too many colours and patterns in one outfit for my liking!!! I am trying to educate him at the moment! x

  61. Kirsty - winnettes

    October 16, 2016 at 10:39 am

    She has got some serious style! I love that she wears a pinafore/skirt to school in the summer and doesn’t just conform to the ‘normal’. It’s still regulatory untiform so why not? I wish I was half as fashionable as her when I was younger.

  62. Alana - Burnished Chaos

    October 16, 2016 at 9:44 am

    Great idea for a series. I love how she has developed her own style already, can’t beat a good maxi dress and I remember being little and dying for a dress that would swirl out when I twirled x

  63. Emma

    October 16, 2016 at 9:17 am

    What a cool lady! My two would live in dresses too, come rain or shine 🙂 #KCACOLS

    What a cool fashionable young lady you have there. It’s great that she has such a clear individual style. This is one of the things I miss about the fact I’ll never be a mum of girls! #kcacols

    Very similar to my 10 year old who also likes a good twirly dress or maxi dress! I love seeing my little girls develop their own sense of style! Gone are the days I can go shop for her without specific instruction. For birthdays it’s always vouchers now so she can choose her own! #KCACOLS
