There isn't much that I love more than fall fashion. Every August, I begin to get the itch for fall and winter clothing, shoes, and accessories. I live in NC, so it doesn't usually feel like fall until sometime in November, and even the months of November and December can be pretty mild. It was 75 degrees on Christmas day last year, and our friends from Minnesota said that it was the first time they'd ever worn shorts on Christmas! Fall can be sort of tricky when it comes to wardrobes, especially when it just doesn't feel like fall. For me, I like to keep out some pieces from my summer wardrobe that'll help me transition into fall, and mix and match those with new pieces for the season.
Ollie Marie Boutique has gorgeous boutique apparel for women at affordable prices. Ollie Marie Boutique is owned by Megan, who has an inspirational story:
'I believe that women should be beautiful in their daily lives, my goal is to bring fun clothing to women of all shapes and sizes. I truly believe that every story has a style, which is what led me to start my own store.
My name is Megan, known to some of you as SkinnyMeg from my blog. I have lost over 100 pounds, had two children, and grown to love the community of women I participate with on a daily basis. Through my blog I have gained so much enrichment in my daily life, I love to help other's on their own weight loss journey. One thing has always remained consistent no matter my size, my love of clothing. The right outfit has the power to change my mood at any given moment, dressy or casual, I look forward to finding that right dress or top each and every day, well except Sundays, which are reserved for a cute T-shirt and a messy bun!
On my last birthday I had a look at my life ahead, my heart desired to follow my dreams, and with the support of my husband and family I opened Ollie Marie. I'm so excited to share it with all of you!'

I connected with Megan, excited about Ollie Marie Boutique. One of the things that drew me to Ollie Marie, was not just the gorgeous apparel, but the fact that there was a wonderful selection of apparel for curvy girls. I had a baby back in April. I love boutique clothing, but a lot of my pieces weren't going to fit postpartum. I was between a size 2/4 when I became pregnant in August 2015, and gained 50 pounds during my pregnancy. Six months after the birth of my daughter, I am back between a size 4/6. Ollie Marie had lots of styles that I loved when I browsed their online selection. I knew that their pieces would be stylish, and flattering.
Megan was kind enough to send me a few pieces to enjoy from Ollie Marie.
Rockin' the awesome Mama Boss T-Shirt from Ollie Marie Boutique.
I love the Mama Boss shirt. It is so soft and comfortable! It's the perfect casual top to hang out in. I love the gorgeous blue color, and the graphic design! I'm not usually fond of graphic tees, but when I saw this one, it struck a chord with me. I don't consider myself the boss of the family, but 'Mama Boss' is kind of humorous! This buttery soft tee will quickly become a favorite! Pair it with shorts or jeans for a casual look. You could even style it with a pencil skirt and cardigan!
How I wore it:
Mama Boss Tee- Ollie Marie Boutique
Shorts- New York & Company
Flip Flops- Rainbows
Sunglasses- Oscar de la Renta
Hanging out at home with my sweet baby girl in my Mama Boss shirt!
The Mama Boss tee is currently on sale for $10.00! What a great deal! If there's a 'Mama Boss' in your life, definitely consider this tee as a fun gift! I am wearing a size small, which fits sizes 6/8. Fit is a bit of a loose fit on me.
Another favorite piece, and must-have for fall, the Baby Got Spots Top!
This top is currently sold out (boo!), but I am so happy to have it in my closet this fall! I love pairing this top with other colorful pieces. I bumped up the boldness of my look with my red flats (Kenneth Cole). I also have different colored cardigans that I sometimes throw on over this top, and they all look great with it. My favorites are red and yellow.
This top features a cute polka dot design (you're never too old for polka dots, ladies), with a lace trimmed top. I love the combination look. I am wearing the small, which fits a 6/8. It's definitely roomy, and it's super flowy. It would look great as a tunic, worn with leggings and boots!
I also received a beautiful dress, which I'll be featuring in my next Ollie Marie post. Be on the lookout for that one next week!
There are so many beautiful new styles for fall available at Ollie Marie. Take a look at some of the pieces I recommend...
