Coffee Date In Express Denim

livvyland-blog-olivia-watson-austin-texas-coffee-date-express-frayed-ankle-denim-3Hey ladies! How’s your week going? Mine has been pretty good! I’ve been waking up early and staying on top of my to-do list…and keeping the apartment clean (an actual miracle if you know me..!)…feeling pretty good about life right now! It’s amazing what a clean house/uncluttered workspace can do – going to try my best to keep this up!

In other {good} news, I did a little denim shopping at Express last weekend and got to bust out these gorgeous jeans for a coffee date with Blake a few days ago. Coffee + good jeans + Blake = best date ever! ;) In the midst of running around Austin to check off last minute wedding to-do’s, it felt pretty good grab an iced coffee and enjoy a “day date” together – it was so nice to slow down for a bit!

A Wedding Planning “Thank You” To My Mom

livvyland-blog-starling-diamond-pendant-necklace-mother-daughter-wedding-gift-idea-6olivia-mom-starling-pendant-diamond-necklaces-wedding-mother-of-the-bride-giftOhh gals, prepare yourself for an emotional post (…and I haven’t even had a glass of wine today, ha!). As we reach the end of wedding planning (just 3 weeks to go, we can do it!! ;) ), I am starting to catch my breath and take it all in. Our wedding budget did not allow for a wedding planner, so my mom and I took the reigns to plan this monumental shindig on our own. And lemme tell ya, wedding planning is no easy task! We combined forces to check each box in the massive “wedding planning binder” we scooped up at Hobby Lobby and over the past year, I’d say we made a great team and that the wedding will be an absolute dream – and I could not have done it with out the help and support of my beautiful mama!

livvyland-blog-olivia-watson-austin-texas-fashion-blogger-topshop-tassel-periwinkle-blue-tank-top-dl1961-emma-jeans-brahmin-sonny-handbag-1Hey ladies! Hope your weekend is off to a great start! :) If you follow me on Instagram, you’ve likely seen my post about this top quite a bit (…well…and this handbag…and jeans…and sunglasses…) you get it, I like to  re-wear everything in different ways! But I’m super excited to finally put it on my blog because it’s always so helpful when buying clothing to get a closer, in-depth look. It’s always a good day when I get to partner with Nordstrom and in this post I’m sharing how to style this adorable tassel tie top & skinny jeans combo – it’s pretty much the perfect day to night look if you’re a casual, relaxed fashionista like myself!

Sooo… let’s get to it, shall we? ;)

Floral Crochet Panel Top

livvyland-blog-olivia-watson-blank-nyc-distressed-jenas-stecy-nude-strappy-heels-white-eyelet-bell-sleeve-top-south-congress-hotel-1Good evening, ladies! First off, y’all…we are ONE month away from our wedding day…ah! Where has the time gone?! A year a half engagement seemed long, but really zoomed on by! So much to do, so little time… but we’re almost there…can’t wait! Second, today was a pretty good day… aside from realizing that “month countdown” earlier this afternoon (which gave me all the “happy feels” as they say), I had a little photo shoot with one of my favorite Austin photographers (Chelsea Laine Francis) at a really gorgeous venue (One Eleven East) and we had so much fun with it. It was nice to catch up and work in a quiet space all to ourselves rather than my usual street style shots…sometimes it’s fun to break things up! Excited to share those photos and that collaboration with y’all as we inch closer to fall…gonna be a good one! ;)

Sooo… This amazing top! A few things to note: floral crochet, mixed textures with the fabric panels and lastly, bell sleeves. Casual meets chic with this adorable top!

White Textured Tank Top & Sneakers

livvyland-blog-olivia-watson-austin-texas-fashion-blogger-nordstrom-vans-white-sneakers-summer-outfit-2Hello there! Hope your week is off to a great start! :) Mine started off crazier than ever (true story: the last month of wedding planning calls for more bottles of wine and longer bubble baths than I thought… definitely losing my sanity and trying to stay afloat at the moment, ah!). Thus, this past weekend Blake was a total gem and said “hey Olivia, let’s go grab coffee and sit on a patio and just turn it all off for a minute”…and you better believe it was amazing and I definitely needed a break like this one! I slipped on my comfiest kicks, go-to jeans and the cutest textured, lace-front tank top & we drove over to Cafe Medici near UT campus – he snapped a few outfit shots before we made our way to hot lattes and breakfast tacos. It was pretty wonderful – I am very excited to marry a man who knows me so well and steps in when he sees I can’t handle things anymore! (…And to also marry a man who agrees to take pictures of me next to walls before we go on a date…ha!).

Mediterranean Travel Diary: Barcelona & Sitges, Spain

livvyland-blog-olivia-watson-mediterranean-princess-cruise-barcelona-le-sitges-spain-6Hello there, gals! Long time coming, buuut I am so excited to finally share a little photo diary from our stop in Sitges & Barcelona, Spain during our Mediterranean getaway in June! For those new to LL, Blake and I had the absolute pleasure (…more like vacation miracle of a lifetime…it was magical!) of going on a Princess Cruise through the Mediterranean – starting in Spain then venturing to France and Italy (if you haven’t seen my wrap-up posts for those stops, you muuuust! I swoon and simultaneously get depressed every time I go back and read through them…ha! Depressed because it’s over, obviously..! ;) ).

Today I’m sharing a little glimpse at our time in Barcelona (towards the end of this post) and the little seaside town southwest of Barcelona called Sitges, where we stayed the night before boarding the ship. We flew from Austin to Barcelona and were able to explore for two days (one night) before hopping on the boat to officially start our cruise. What a treat it was to have a couple of days to see these beautiful places – we were in heaven!

Striped Cold Shoulder Top & Skinny Jeans

livvyland-blog-goodnight-macaroon-cold-shoulder-striped-top-austin-second-street-district-red-monogram-handbag-dl-1961-emma-jeans-3Hello there! How’s your week going? This week has been pretty darn busy in my world… hence my lack of posts this week! ..Not to mention after the hustle and bustle of the Nordstrom Sale, I needed a breather from my laptop! I’ve been in full-on wedding planning mode the past few days and truth be told, I’ve been missing the sanctuary of my go-to coffeehouse and my laptop quite a bit! (So calming, I love it!!). It felt so nice to get back into my usual routine today, looking forward to sharing more fun posts with y’all this week! :)

…Aaaand to start off, this look! ;) How cute is this striped cold shoulder top?! LOVE the fun tie detailing at the shoulders and the print is super adorable – such a breezy, pretty little top. I paired it with some new and seriously AMAZING denim skinny jeans by DL1961… been a big fan of this brand for a long time and was so excited when these gorgeous new skinnies arrived in the mail last week! Excited to rock these on cooler summer days (…er, nights in Austin..it’s so hot right now during the day) and well into fall and winter!

Drop Waist Dress & OTK Boots (Last Weekend Of Nsale!)

livvyland-blog-olivia-watson-fall-outfit-inspiration-drop-waist-white-dress-otk-boots-7Happy weekend, loves! Blake and I went and had drinks with his co-workers last night then ventured over to one of our favorite Mexican food restaurants to end the night with tacos and a little Olympic opening ceremony viewing – it was the perfect Friday night! The restaurant was packed and everyone cheered when team USA came on the screen, it was so fun! Today we’re doing some cleaning (…classic weekend routine in our abode, meh!) and then headed to go look at wedding bands (…rings, not like music haha) …eek, I am so excited! Inching our way to the altar haha, it’s been so nice to take our time with planning and not feel rushed to get stuff done – definitely a perk of a long engagement! Curious to see what our options are since we’ll have to custom make a band for my ring (it’s not a traditional engagement setting, so we’ll see how this one goes!). Either way… very happy to peruse jewelry stores all day long.. ;) Blake may just have to drag me out, ha!

Soo… onto this look! This is the last weekend to shop the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale and scoop up fall clothing/accessories/beauty products for WAY less than full price – but it ends August 7th! My drop waist dress and over the knee boots are in this sale and seriously, this combo is SO CUTE!! (Dress now $59, reg. $90 – boots now $139, reg. $240!!).
