Hello friends! I’m currently writing this post from a coffeehouse in Austin…it’s rainy and cold outside but there’s Christmas music playing and I’m nice and bundled up at my little table…Ohh how I love the holidays! We got back from Mexico last night and after sleeping like a rock, I woke up ready to take on the week (…with the help of a double latte, obvs..! 😉 ).
If you’ve been following me for over a year, you’ll remember my last post with Silver Jeans (you can see that post here) – one of my favorite denim brands, for more reason than one! 1. Adorable 2. Affordable 3. THE nicest team EVER! Seriously, I love the folks behind the brand as much as I love their denim… and that’s saying a lot! 😉
Happy Sunday, ladies! I hope you’ve had a wonderful, relaxing weekend thus far! We’re still in Mexico but headed home this evening…I thought I’d squeeze in a blog post while Blake is still sleeping…coffee in hand and a view of palm trees swaying in the breeze from our balcony. No complaints here! 😉 Though I’ve been in “warm weather mode” this weekend, I’ve been told it’s quite cold back in Austin…thus as soon as we touch down tonight, it’s goodbye cutoff shorts and hello cozy knits, jeans and ankle booties!
Hello there! How’s your week going? Blake and I are headed to Cabo for his cousin’s beach wedding bright and early tomorrow…thus, you can imagine that I’ve been more motivated than ever to get back into a solid fitness routine! Not to mention, after thoroughly enjoying stuffing my face over the Thanksgiving holiday, let’s just say my body has been telling me to get up and mooooove, even if the sweatpants in my closet are calling my name. 😉
We’ve made it to Cyber Monday – wahoo!! I am seriously SO excited about this particular day of the big sales weekend because the deals are SO good!! Last year we did the majority of our Christmas shopping from the comfort of our sofa (…and pajamas, obvs)…and this year I plan to do the exact same thing. No lines, tons of savings, gifts for the fam (…and of course a few gifts for me, too…eek! 😉 ). Happy shopping, loves!

If there’s one thing I love about the holidays, it’s that I get to spend more time with my out-of-town friends! It has sort of become one of those unexpected holiday traditions I look forward to each year. (When you’re younger, you don’t exactly look ahead and think half of your friend crew will move away one day!). Thus, this particular time of year is dear to my heart given that we get to spend some quality time together! One of my very best friends, Lauren of Vandi Fair, came into town last week with our fellow galpal and photographer, Angie, so we all met for a coffee & pastry date at the darling Elizabeth Street Cafe. I’d been dying to go here for quite some time, and after picking out some cozy sweaters in the prettiest pink hues from Express, we knew a powder pink and teal coffeehouse was the perfect spot for a catchup sesh…and of course some photo opps while we were at it! 😉
Psst…both our outfits are on MAJOR sale this weekend because Express is having an awesome Cyber Monday Sale (…that’s already in full swing!)…Y’all, 50% off everything!! If there’s any time to load up on cozy sweaters and knits, it’s most definitely today!
Happy Black Friday!!! It’s officially here – THE weekend of holiday shopping and I am so very excited! True life: it’s currently midnight and Blake is asleep next to me on the sofa as I search the internet for the best shopping finds… I’ve got a fresh pour of red wine in hand and the Jimmy Kimmel late show playing on the TV…btw I am bundled up in my favorite Patagonia pullover (that’s now on sale, YAY) and using that gorgeous chunky knit blanket as seen above (Etsy is so awesome, y’all!). Needless to say, I might be “working” on a holiday, but things are pretty darn good!
I am always so excited to share when items I feature on my blog & Instagram go on sale, thus, there’s no better time than now to share all of the amazing discounts & sales with y’all! First up, some of my favorites lately: chunky sweaters, cozy cardigans, Ugg boots and a ton more… Read on to get the full scoop!
Happy Thanksgiving, friends!! I hope you’re enjoying this time with loved ones! Good news, I woke up at 6am this morning to scour the web for the best deals at my favorite retailers! (Yep, I love y’all that much! 😉 All good, I am actually SO excited about how many awesome deals there are right now!!). Nordstrom, Shopbop, Neiman Marcus and more!! From coats (like that gorgeous Ralph Lauren camel number – under $200!) to blanket scarves for just $12 (highly recommend stocking up on these – they’re the best gifts!), designer handbags (MAJOR swoon alert over those Chloe bags…omg!), I hope you enjoy some serious online shopping and take advantage of these killer deals!! Items are selling quick, so be sure to scoop up your favorites – happy shopping, loves!!
Looks like Christmas came early this year! 😉 The early bird Black Friday sales were just TOO good not to share with y’all – so I wanted to make a quick roundup of some AMAZING finds that are selling out quick! Two of my favorite retailers, Shopbop & Nordstrom, are offering major pre-thanksgiving markdowns – time to stock up on gifts for your loved ones aaaand update your fall/winter wardrobe #amiright?! 😉
Every season there seems to be that one pair of shoes I reach for above the rest…and let’s just say when I bought these Treasure & Bond ankle booties during the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale back in July, I had no idea juuuust how much I’d wear them in the fall! If you follow me on Instagram (@livvylandblog), you’ve probably seen me rock these fabulous suede booties a TON (ps. wearing the sand suede color!)…thus, you know just how versatile they can be! And the best bonus of all? They’re under $100…mhmm! I love that Nordstrom carries awesome brands that fit like a glove, are beautiful quality and are SO affordable!
Hello gals! It’s the moooost wonderful time of the yeaaaaaar! 😉 Let’s just say this Austin cold-front and all the Christmas decor hitting stores has definitely worked it’s holiday charm on me. Thus, it’s time to get a head start on your holiday shopping list – and I’ve got just the gift ideas to help you out! Bonus: they’re ALL under $50 (…and most are way under, wahoo!). So, grab your glass of wine (or coffee if you’re reading this one in the morning), and enjoy shopping 20 of my favorite cozy picks of the season!
