Bows & Boulevards

Why hello!

No, I have not dropped off the face of the planet. Yes, I’m alive. (Although barely). Unfortunately, life has taken ahold of me and blogging has had to be put to the side. I’ve finally applied to college (WOO!) and hopefully, I’ll be getting some acceptance letters soon. But, that’s not the exciting news I’ve come to share with everyone.

My news is I will no longer be blogging on An Itty Bitty Ditty anymore. But don’t worry! I’ll still be blogging but with Blogger on Bows & Boulevards. It took a lot of thought but I really didn’t like the restrictions on WordPress.com and I really don’t have the time right now to be learning CSS and HTML on WordPress.org. Soooo… I switched over! But, I’m going to give you a good list of why Bows & Boulevards will be like ten times better than An Itty Bitty Ditty….

  1. It looks pretty generic right now but I’m seriously planning on investing on a great theme during the Christmas season. Finally, my blog appearance will hopefully reflect the content!
  2. I recieved a DSRL for my birthday (thank you Ry) and am learning some photography skills
  3. I also have an iPhone so it’ll be easier to communicate
  4. iPhone=Instagram (follow follow)
  5. And lastly, it’s a-freaking-lot easier to say. I mean, say Itty Bitty Ditty ten times. I dare you.

Anyway, I better see ALL OF YOU on Bows & Boulevards because I miss hearing from everyone 🙂

Hugs & Kisses,

Olivia

The Fox of Fate

Last weekend, I was in dire need of some shopping therapy. I had just gone from the mall and bought a pair of oxford heels, thigh-high socks (which, by the way, HOW DO YOU WEAR??), and some much needed leggings for the fall season. Anyhoo… I took a trip down to TJ Maxx for one last addition to my shopping bag.

Flipping through the racks, I stumbled upon this cute fox dress…In my size and probably the last one!  Now, these kinds of loose dresses never work on me because of my figure. But my goodness, this dress was absolutely perfect. It had to be fate. So, I scourged through the last of my dollars and bought it. And it has already become a favorite in my closet! Who knew foxes could be so cute?

Hugs & Kisses,

Olivia

PS: I’m looking towards the next month of October and it’s pretty busy! Between SATs, ACTs, college visits, my wisdom teeth, and my birthday… It’s gonna be pretty time consuming. So I apologize beforehand when my posts become very sporadic over the next few weeks.

Inspired From A Bartender

Judging from my title, you’re probably like, “What? Isn’t she like underage? Why is she in bars getting inspired by bartenders?” Well… I can explain. And no, don’t worry! Bars are not places of usual hangouts for this girl.

This past summer, my boyfriend’s family held a party for his grandfather’s passing. It was lovely with catered food, reminiscing photos, Greek relatives, and hey… A bartender! And she looked awesome with this scarf wrapped around her head. It was totally vintage looking which of course, means that I loved it. Anyway, all evening, I was trying to work up the courage to ask her. Unfortunately, I never got the chance because there were too many people gathered around the bar area. (Or that’s my excuse anyway…).

But, the next day, I looked up the process of how to do it online. And I was inspired to try it out that day when my best friend, her sister, and I went out to lunch.

That was a little over a month ago, and today, I’m trying it out with my mom’s scarf she got at a Paris market of sorts. It’s a little chillier so instead of wearing it with shorts, I’m wearing it with my black jeans and boots! Thankfully, headscarves are an all-year-round style!

BBL (Be Back Later)

Not much to report today. It’s yet again, a busy week with tennis tennis tennis tennis. All day, everyday. (It seems like.) Considering I have far away matches twice this week, I probably won’t be able to get back to your comments until the end of the week. And with that, my sincerest apologies.

But, I hope everyone’s having a lovely week! Can’t wait to talk to you in a few days.

Hugs & Kisses,

Benedict for Brunch

A couple of weeks ago, I discovered how marvelous brunch is!

Sometime towards the last days of summer, our next-door neighbors invited my mother and I to brunch. We went to a mod lookin’ restaurant in what would be a pretty sketchy part of town at night. But at noon, the streets looked pretty innocent. It was one of those cool restaurants with brick walls and low lighting.

We caught up on life over Eggs Benedict, which I had never tried before. It was delicious and to be honest, I’m totally craving it thinking about it!

Anyway, I thought that this was a cute outfit for the brunch occasion. The peter pan collar and lace skirt gave my outfit a sweet overall look. That morning, I tried a cool trick I discovered on a UK blog. It’s pretty different in terms of curling your hair. Check it here! Olivia Emily is super gorgeous and this piece was incredibly inspiring:)

Have a lovely week!

Hugs & Kisses,

Olivia

PS: Out of complete curiosity, I was wondering the thought and steps everyone put into creating a post for their blog. Like how do you decide what you’re going to wear? What are the steps to stylizing your outfit? The steps for your photo shoot? Etc. There’s no particular reason, I’m just curious! Thanks!
