I’m headed to the airport in about 30 minutes, but until then thought I could get this post up for y’all!

I had the such a wonderful week in both Rhode Island and New York, but am feeling inspired, refreshed and excited to get back to Austin – and above all, to see my sweetheart! Seriously dying for a cuddle sesh, ha!

Buuut before I get more mushy than that (y’all know me, I can get there pretty quick haha), let’s chat about this adorable olive shift dress (under $50) and OTK boots combo…gahh, SO gorgeous!!

Hope you all had a wonderful week and get to enjoy a nice, relaxing weekend. 🙂 I made it to NYC yesterday and we’ve got a full day ahead…going to scope out Brooklyn and eat/drink our way through Manhattan…no complaints here, ha! Keeping it short and sweet today, but wanted to be sure and share this adorable dress with y’all – it’s budget friendly and SO soft and breezy. I also have it in olive green and couldn’t resist the pretty floral print, too! (Ps. Would be so cute with OTK boots and a leather jacket, too!).

Get all the details at the end of this post – happy Saturday! XOXO

A-Line Mini Skirt & Turtleneck Tank

livvyland-blog-olivia-watson-bailey-44-grey-turtleneck-tank-top-free-people-leather-button-up-a-line-mini-skirt-celine-marta-sunglasses-3Hi there! How’s your week going? I’m currently writing this post from our cozy hotel in Newport, Rhode Island…looking out our window at the harbor filled with sailboats and mini yachts, coffee in hand (…can you tell I’m in my happy place right now? Ha!). Y’all, the east coast is breathtaking! My friend Veronica and I flew into Rhode Island yesterday and will be here for four days with the wonderful Brahmin Handbag team (…note that gorgeous bag in this post, eh eh! 😉 ), then we’ll part ways as she heads to San Francisco for a girls weekend, and I’ll take the train to NYC to spend some time with my besties in the city. Needless to say, we are so excited to be traveling, experiencing new cities and meeting the team behind a brand I have worn and adored long before I started blogging… this is truly a dream come true! It’s mornings like this where I find myself full of gratitude and feeling more motivated than ever to keep pursuing a career that I whole heartedly love.

Aaand now that I’ve ventured into “sappy” mode (ha!), let’s get this adorable, simple & chic look, shall we? 😉

Plaid Shirt Dress & Navy Ankle Booties

Hello there! How was your weekend? We stayed extra busy doing some deep cleaning, visiting with family and packing for my east coast getaway (…and while doing so I caught up on the latest Saturday Night Live and it was SO funny! Seriously, this election season is pure gold for SNL…I was crying I was laughing so hard, ha!). We also snuck in a date night on Saturday – Blake and I went to one of our favorite college spots (the UT game was on) for some yummy Brazilian food and margaritas! If you’re in Austin, you’ve got to try Sao Paulo near UT campus and get the puffy chips and queso, you won’t be disappointed! 😉

Though it’s technically fall, Austin weather is sticking to those 85 degree temperatures during the day. That means we’re still in that transitional attire mindset, so shift dresses and boots has been part of my wardrobe routine for a few weeks now. I am loving plaid shirt dresses paired with cute ankle booties (like these adorable Dolce Vita navy boots!).

Travel Staples With Barrington Gifts

livvyland-blog-olivia-watson-barrington-gifts-chevron-print-monogram-tote-bag-duffel-luggage-dl-1961-emma-jeans-austin-texas-fashion-blogger-2Happy weekend, loves! This past week zooooomed on by! No complaints here because that means I’m a few days closer to a trip to the east coast next week!! In a few days I’m headed to Rhode Island for some galpal time with one of my besties, Veronica (…and yes, we may just have to do a city tour and drive by Taylor Swift’s house, ha!), and from there will be hopping on a train to New York City to go visit with another friend – my bridesman Ben! Needless to say, I’m very much looking forward to experiencing actual fall weather (…clearly in Austin we don’t necessarily need the layers midday, as you can see me holding my cardigan in hand above..), as well as some quality friend time with a few of my favorite people. 🙂

Which brings me to that adorable tote and cabin bag set above (psst..there’s actually a matching laptop case in the tote, too!). I always chat about what I’m wearing to the airport, so today I’m excited to partner with Barrington Gifts (y’all have seen me gush about this brand a lot on my Instagram feed!!) and show a few items that help me get from point A to point B in style! 😉

Darling Chiffon Babydoll Top

Happy weekend, loves! Hope your Saturday is off to a great start! I am still recovering from the first day of ACL (yesterday)…this morning I woke up with quite the headache..ha! The sign of a good time? Perhaps..! 😉 The granny in me must have gone away yesterday and the 26-year-old “carefree Olivia” finally let loose. I must say, it felt so nice! Been a while since I’ve danced to live music without worrying about a lengthy to-do list waiting at home. (…Gotta love “adulting,” right? Welcoming this break from it, ha!). Thus, I’m excited to get back out to the festival grounds this afternoon…currently hydrating as best I can before we hit ACL for day 2…always such a fun time of year in Austin!

In other news…let’s talk about this gorgeous babydoll, chiffon top – shall we? 😉

Hello there! I know I know…it’s still not exactly “sweater weather” in Austin, but hey…if the rest of the country gets to dress in cozy sweaters and ankle booties…I’m jumping on that bandwagon! 😉 I’ll just turn my AC down  a little more…right? Ha!

If you couldn’t tell by following my Instagram posts lately, I have transitioned from sunny Santorini, right into fall fashion on my blog and social media. When we left for our honeymoon, it was still summer in Austin, then two weeks later we stepped off the plane back home and were quickly greeted by cooler temps and pumpkin spice everything. No complaints here, I am welcoming autumn with open arms! One reason being that fall fashion is one of my very favorite things…cozy sweaters, earth tones and ankle booties…I am all in!

Color Pop: Mustard Yellow For Fall

livvyland-blog-olivia-watson-gigi-new-york-saffron-mustard-yellow-clutch-fall-boho-acl-outfit-inspiration-chelsea-laine-francis-photography-2Hi there! How’s your week going? Mine is off to a busy and good start! For starters, Blake went into go-go-go mode while I was visiting with my family when we got back on Sunday and he put away ALL of our registry gifts…literally he is an amazing human! It feels like we’re “real adults” with new bedding, nice cookware and pretty candles all over this apartment, ha! Aside from getting settled into our “married life,” I’ve been truckin’ away at some fun collaborations I have in the queue this month.. I didn’t realize how much I had going on until I wrote it down in my planner this morning…and it’s a lot! Excited to take y’all along for the ride as I kick into high gear with a few fun things headed to LL!

…But first, let’s get to this adorable transitional look, shall we? 😉
