A&M Muse: Olivia Knight-Butler

A&M Muse: Olivia Knight-Butler

We are launching our A&M Muse series where we shine a light on inspirational women in fashion. #AMmuse

To kick-off the series we have interviewed Olivia Knight-Butler, a fashion and lifestyle blogger.

AMmuse blog series

Olivia says she enjoys blogging too much to call it work.

"It started off as a hobby and now a hobby that pays a few of the bills. I’ve come a long way in a short period of time and I can only assume that’s because I love what I do and people see that in my work."

The blog's main topic is fashion, but since she became pregnant, Olivia's focus has switched to pregnancy and her current lifestyle as a mum-in-waiting.

A day in the life of a fashion blogger: 

"My day consists of a photo shoot in a unique location, usually to capture a specific outfit that I am loving. Occasionally I will have sponsored work, too."

Muse style

Olivia's main shops are All Saints, Zara and H&M for staple pieces.

She says the best way to describe her style is "easy-wear". It is slightly edgy and easy to dress up or down. And she likes to make sure her look is unique. "Layers are my best friend! Layered tops, layered jumpers, layered necklaces... I don’t like basic," she says.

Her go-to staples are her All Saints leather jackets and knee high suede boots. For a more casual day, she opts for her trusty pair of Vans trainers.

"Layered necklaces are a key staple for me though. You’d think I’m being biased but the majority of my necklaces are from Astrid & Miyu. My favourite is my Chinese zodiac pig necklace. Love it.

"I have a chunky chain necklace from YSL which I love layering to create an edgy look," she adds.

Away from blogging, Olivia likes to organise things - although she admits they rarely happen! She also enjoys cheering on her boyfriend at the golf club.

Olivia loves discovering new sushi joints - the cuisine is "hands down" her favourite.

"We have a family-run Japanese restaurant in the town where we live and it’s just the best," she says, adding: "I’d also never turn down a pulled pork burrito from Tortilla."

And if all else fails, she loves a classic ham and mustard sandwich.

Olivia's Chinese zodiac is the pig. It relates to her personality because her top strength is being persuasive. "And my biggest weakness is my moody personality - but I blame that on the hormones."
