This jumpsuit demands FULL. ATTENTION. Okay okay so it’s not really thaaat pressing… 😉 but FOR REALZ how freaking adorable is this thing?! Urban Outfitters has been killing the romper/jumpsuit game lately and I have become that crazy online shopper that visits the New Arrivals tab on the regular…but hey, my shopping addiction is to your benefit, right? …Just doing my homework over here!

Though Austin weather hasn’t yet decided if we’re full on ready for spring, I will take those small pockets of warmth and sunshine and most definitely wear my new jumpsuit!! (PS. If you follow me on the ‘ol gram or watched my Like To Know It chat, you probably saw me wearing this last week, but styled a little more festival-ish here…ohh the possibilities!).

Easy Vegetarian Ramen

vegetarian-ramen-noodle-soup-simple-easy-homemade-livvyland-blog-austin-lifestyle-blogger-recipe-idea-2By Jessica Lee

Ramen is one of the first foods I remember making on my own. My mom would let me pick from the many overly processed flavors at the supermarket. I’d go home, heat up a pot of water on the stove and place my brick of noodles inside. Once dissolved, I’d add that packet of flavoring (ahem, msg) and pat myself on the back for “making” my own meal.

Fast forward and I’m still making ramen but in a much more healthy way…

How’s your week going? I’m in full-on SXSW mode over here…hence my lack of blog posts in the past week! Last week I had the absolute honor of teaching an hour long class about blogging and OMG I was completely blown away by the turnout and incredible feedback from all of YOU! Y’all are the reason I am fueled to keep doing this crazy blogging thing…and meeting my readers in person sure is the most gratifying feeling. A very big virtual bear hug and thank you to everyone who came out to the event or sent me an encouraging DM on Instagram – it has all meant more than you know!

/ Sappy rant over! 😉 (…I feel like I’ve had so many of those lately…haha ah!). Onwards to this beautiful and classy everyday outfit idea!

That Go-To Outfit

Austin doesn’t know if it’s hot, cold, extra dry or super humid and my hair is paying the price lately! Second…what’s your “I feel most myself when I’m wearing…” outfit of choice? As you can tell from my blog and IG feed, I am a total jeans girl through and through…and this particular pair of high rise denim is one that gets worn more than the rest! Y’all know my love for stripes runs deep, and I truly can’t tell you how many times I have worn this cozy top in the last few months (…no lie it’s likely an embarrassing amount of times, ha!). Lastly…oh those good ‘ol cognac accessories I can’t seem to shake. I am officially embracing my love for this color everything and will no longer hold myself back from buying aaaaall the (tan) things!

You Know You’re An Adult When…

livvyland-blog-olivia-watson-austin-texas-lifestyle-blogger-dyson-v6-vacuum-ebay-7You know you’ve become a true adult when the day comes that you’re excited…no wait…ecstatic for a vacuum upgrade. When the box for our new Dyson arrived on our doorstep, you’d think I was a wild animal opening up that package…but no, just a regular ‘ol girl who reaaaaally loves her cleaning gadgets! And the absolute best part? This fella was just over $200 (reg. $499)!! I have never seen so many beautiful (…dare I describe a vacuum as such?) Dyson vacuums that are also SO affordable. And where oh where would you find such a deal? Look no further than eBay!

All The Feels

livvyland-blog-olivia-watson-lou-and-grey-best-loungewear-cozy-joggers-stripe-sweatshirt-coffee-bed-bedroom-9What do you do to relax at home? As Blake and I are getting the hang of being dog parents, we’ve both found that lounging in bed has been a solid way to calm Watson down (…he instantly relaxes, it’s kind of amazing!) and gives us a little break from puppy training, too. We grab our books, pour some fresh coffee and soak up time with our cuddly pup! It’s become our weekend ritual lately (…and sometimes part of my daily routine when I need a sanity break, ha! Working from home means it’s tough to turn my brain off…!), and one of my very favorite things we do as a little family.

Transition To Spring

livvyland-blog-olivia-watson-sole-society-spring-transition-shoes-outfit-idea-4Ohh we are SO close to spring! It’s finally sunny in Austin today and I feel like my soul is revived a bit…over a week of miserable, rainy, cold, dark weather did quite a doozy on my mind…I’ve never experienced how deeply weather can effect my mood until this time around…and you can ask Blake, I was not a happy human to be around, haha ah! Anyone else feel the woes of grim weather? I feel like a lot of my friends have been feeling the same way lately.

In other (good!) news, spring fashion is HERE! If you’re an online shopper like me, you may have noticed all the winter goodies going on sale and fresh, spring picks hitting the “new arrivals” tabs. I’m excited to share this easy, season-to-season transitional look with y’all – you know I’m a sucker for mixing up neutrals (…and topping off with a bandana), so let’s get to it!

Under $70 Denim

livvyland-blog-olivia-watson-south-congress-avenue-austin-texas-fashion-life-style-blogger-bdg-high-waist-crop-flare-jeans-3livvyland-blog-olivia-watson-south-congress-avenue-austin-texas-fashion-life-style-blogger-bdg-high-waist-crop-flare-jeans-5Be still my heart. This pair of cropped flare denim is  e v e r y t h i n g . I watched Clueless over the weekend and since then, I’ve been a bit more valley girl-esque than usual. I guess what was “valley girl” in the 90s is now “basic” in the 2000s…either way, sometimes it’s fun to let your brain go to mush for a bit and use terminology that is mainstream girl code. In other words, when I say these jeans are “e v e r y t h i n g” = THESE PANTS ARE FREAKIN’ AMAZING!
