Crochet White Summer Dress

Hey there! I don’t know about y’all, but I’m pretty darn excited for this holiday weekend – that whole 3-days-off thing has come at a great time because this week was crazy busy! Very ready to slow down and recover from it…and enjoy some r&r time with Blake and my family! As mentioned, this week was madness…true story: I had a cryfest from stress that ended with half a bottle of wine and a soak in the tub more than once this week haha! I’m a mess, I know…constantly working on my “zen” … Hey, we all have our good and bad days – I guess this week was not in my favor..! Hopefully that means next week will be amaaaazing and a breeze, right? ;) . But hey, I had a couple of highs mixed into my lows, and one of them was meeting up with my friend and old co-worker Kathryn (she runs Kathryn Frazer Photography) to snap some photos and catch up over coffee. It was SO wonderful to see her and talk about literally everything – she definitely had me laughing and distracted from my never ending to-do list!

Before we sat down for coffee, we did a quick little shoot in this suuuper perfect white flowy dress by Free People. Seriously, how adorable is this dress with the wrap-up sandals? Gah, I am in LOVE!

That Time I Asked My Best Guy Friend To Be My “Bridesman”

livvyland-style-me-pretty-for-such-a-time-designs-stamped-spoon-april-heather-art-bridesmaid-coffee-mug-bridal-party-asking-idea-6Hello there! I am super excited about today’s post because I’m sharing a personal essay about a topic I feel very strongly about. Fresh off my bachelorette trip to Costa Rica, the ladies over at Style Me Pretty reached out and asked if I’d write a post on the topic of having a guy in my bridal party (my friend Ben) – and of course I jumped at the opportunity. Today I’m giving you a glimpse at one of my longest and most precious friendships (seriously, we go way back!) and I’m so honored to use this space to provide progressive thinking when it comes to breaking certain traditions, whether wedding related or not!

The Perfect Date Night Look

1-livvyland-blog-olivia-watson-austin-texas-fashion-blogger-blush-pink-off-shoulder-top-topshop-white-skinny-jeans-date-night-outfit-summer-4Hello there! How’s your weekend going? So far, I’ve spent my Saturday drinking coffee and cleaning up around the apartment – isn’t that generally how weekends go once you reach adulthood? Ha! Dishes, laundry…ohh you know, just livin’ the dream! ;) I know I say this every weekend, but maybe one day I’ll feel like I have my life together – if it’s not one thing it’s another. Then again, if a messy apartment is the worst of my problems at the moment, I think I’m doing okay!

Though I’m in track shorts and a giant old t-shirt cleaning up in the morning, come Saturday night I am SO ready for a yummy drink and a patio dinner date with my darling! We are trying to save money and eat out less (…we’ve recently been talking about starting to buckle down and save for a house) so one strategy is to have one big date night on the weekend and cook dinner at home the rest of the time. (…We’ll see how that goes…going to try our hardest but working around two crazy schedules makes a dinner routine tough to nail down!). That said, on that one night a week, I’m going to want to look and feel beautiful (working from home = I am in jeans and a tee on most days!) – so wearing the perfect date night outfit is a must! ;)
