"My inspiration came from my boyfriend's sarcastic comments about my outfits, but my willingness to wear them anyway, and him still loving me anyway," Olivia told Bored Panda. "I wanted to, and still aim to, empower women to dress for themselves rather for others around them.

Because couples don't always have to agree on everything, it's how you deal with your differences that is key to a long-lasting relationship. Jackson and her boyfriend clearly have a matching sense of humor and don't take themselves too seriously – this really helps!

"Humour definitely plays a big part!" she said. "He probably doesn't appreciate them because he doesn't keep up with women's fashion trends and that I'm partial to a bright colour or something with pom poms on. Luckily, he's now used to me wearing them anyway and not listening so there's not too much negotiation - just an eye roll or sarcastic comment from him usually!"

Our Saturday morning..

 ‘My car doesn’t need fixing Liv’

 ‘I know it doesn’t?’ 

‘Why are you dressed like a mechanic then?’

*glare*

’I’ll bring you coffee’

I like it ❤️ I love the combination of "coarse" leather jackets and light dresses, it's such a cool contrast

Olivia doesn't think that women should care what their partners think about their choice of clothing, but she understands those that do. "If you're not particularly confident about yourself (and we've all been there), your partner's opinion can really affect how you feel about your fashion choices," she continued. "I think your partner should love you for you, not for what you're wearing! 

“My boyfriend actually loves that I’ve found a community of other women whose partners hate their fashion choices too. Despite his sarcastic comments and eye rolls, he still comes out with me wearing a ‘hospital gown’ or ‘mechanics outfit’ and is totally supportive of me wearing what I want and dressing for myself.”

This is the ultimate message of Olivia's page: have the confidence in your own choices, even if cheeky loved ones either don't get it, or just enjoy taking the piss from time to time.

“I started writing my blog in May 2018, shortly after starting my Instagram page. On the whole, the feedback to both has been overwhelmingly supportive. I regularly get messages from women thanking me for inspiring them to be a bit more brave which their fashion choices, which I absolutely love and it reassures me that I'm doing the right thing by sharing. I've met a lovely community of women who are now dressing for themselves which is great!"

I’m not 100% sure what he hates more - it’s reflectiveness, or the fact my mum has the same one and we’ll happily wear them together.

My friends husband made three negative comments about her swimsuit as she was proudly modeling it. She responded, "Why don't you wear a Speedo -- are you too scared to show your tiny package?" He shut up right away.

Can't stand the "trainers" are they your standard dress? Spots on these pants "wear" you as they are too big. Small ones would be great.
