The Best Thermal Top

If you follow me on Instagram, you’ve likely seen me share this top a gazillion times (for instance herehere & here)…and on that note, have you scooped up one for yourself yet?! 😉 In all seriousness, there aren’t a ton of non-maternity tops I’ve found that provide full coverage and have a relaxed enough fit that still feels comfortable – especially six months into pregnancy. This one is from Urban Outfitters and I now own it in four colors…y’all know me, when the top fits, get aaaall the colors!

What To Wear: Fall Hike

livvyland-blog-olivia-watson-austin-texas-fashion-lifestyle-blogger-greenbelt-fall-patagonia-radalie-parka-sorel-ainsley-boots-hiking-outfit-backcountry-6Crisp air, colorful leaves, hot chocolate in hand and the coziest outfit…my idea of the perfect weekend hike! Last Sunday Blake and I snuck away from the pups and enjoyed a hike through our old stomping grounds – the Greenbelt. Before buying a house, our old apartment balcony overlooked the Austin Greenbelt and it was nothing but vast trees as far as the eye could see! While we reminisced about our days living in central Austin, before we had dogs, a house note or a baby on the way (…ohh the days of zero responsibility ha!), we trekked along the beautiful Barton Creek and stopped for some photos as the sun was setting. I know I talk a lot about the importance of getting outdoors on my blog and IG, but I really do believe fresh air and nature can cure a lot things, namely stress and anxiety. When the world seems really heavy, sometimes the best remedy is a peaceful walk amongst the trees, the sound of a nearby stream and the crinkling of leaves beneath your feet.

My Pregnancy Workout Routine

If there’s one thing that makes me feel less bloated and provides an extra boost of energy these days, it’s getting in my daily workout. Though I can’t “go hard” like I used to pre-pregnancy, I have discovered one thing that makes me feel confident and strong…

PS. Hey cutie Watson in this post! As soon as he hears me grab the leash, he is sprinting to get out the door, ha!

My Favorite Body-Con Dress

I don’t really know why, but over time I basically just stopped wearing dresses…even though they’re comfortable and make me feel great! I think I’d forgotten just how nice it is not to wear pants…ha! Anyhoo…this body-con dress is non-maternity and I’ve scooped it up in three colors already. It’s flattering, extremely comfy and something you can wear before, during and after pregnancy (…and lemme tell ya, those pieces are hard to come by and become wardrobe life savers!!).

Ireland Favorite: The Blarney Castle

livvyland-blog-olivia-watson-austin-texas-travel-lifestyle-blogger-what-do-see-ireland-cork-blarney-castle-14 livvyland-blog-olivia-watson-austin-texas-travel-lifestyle-blogger-what-do-see-ireland-cork-blarney-castle-1One of my very favorite things to see in Ireland: The Blarney Castle. This medieval castle dates back to 1446, with views of vast Irish countryside (truly, I have never seen so many shades of green in my life!), the ability to climb to the top (the stairs are quite narrow and steep), a few dungeons in sight (eerie and fascinating all in one) and the best part? If you’ve got Irish roots, you may want to hold to tradition and kiss the Blarney Stone! Unsanitary? You betcha. But awesome? 100%. Blake is full-on Irish (true story: Baby P might just be a ginger, ha!), so visiting the Blarney Castle was such a special treat while on our cruise through the British Isles in September!

Greetings from Austin! After all the rainy insanity we’ve experienced lately, we were lucky enough to get a gorgeous day with bursts of sunshine…and I could not be happier!! I’ve been cooped up inside for too long now, so it felt wonderful to enjoy some fresh air (it was a crisp, magical 65 degrees) and get out and adventure around my very favorite part of town, South Congress Avenue, while wearing a couple of new favorites from the always incredible Patricia Nash Designs (those boots…that backpack…swoon!). Sharing a mini photo diary, plus outfit details (of course!).

And two, these extremely gorgeous (and very affordable, just $27) wrap bracelets are stinkin’ ADORABLE and such a great holiday gift idea, too. Let’s get to it!

Black & White Athleisure

Dressing my bump has been such a fun challenge…especially as this little guy just keeps growing! I am officially 6 months pregnant (omg where did the time go?!) and the one thing I will not waiver on is comfort. Hence the sneakers…and the leggings…and the long tank top! 😉 Athleisure is always in style…and lucky for me, I found a few key pieces on eBay that I am excited to put into my fall wardrobe rotation!

Rainy Day Hike

I’m lucky to live somewhere with both a big city and hill country vibe – and to be able to trade the hustle and bustle for trees and cliff-sides within minutes. In the midst of the crazy rainy weather we’ve been getting lately (hope you’re all staying safe & dry!) my sister and I were dying to get outside and enjoy some fresh air! The rain subsided for a few hours while we hiked around Mount Bonnell, then started pouring on us just after we were headed back down. Those few hours of peace and quiet soaking in that view was therapeutic for us…we’ve all been cooped up for weeks now!
