Black on Black


Confession: this may be in my top three favorite outfits of all time on the blog…mostly because wearing all black makes me feel like a rockstar…and also because sometimes I secretly wish I could be like Demi Lovato…and I feel like she’d totally rock this outfit. Gah, love me some Demi, and love me some monochromatic outfits. ūüėČ

Though this look is solid black from head to toe, each piece is unique on its own and suuuper gorgeous…and when you combine them, oh-muh-gaw it’s a beautiful thing! The drape front jacket is just $88 (seriously, that’s a STEAL!) and it comes in four colors that are all fabulous additions to any fall color palette. The dress is incredible quality and by one of my favorite designers, Yumi Kim, and is the perfect layering dress or stand alone piece. The deep neckline on the dress (…er..well, deep on me, ha!) is really elegant and makes for one of those special details that make Yumi Kim the stunning brand it is, I feel like she really just gets how to create¬†pieces that flatter our figures!

Cozy Fall Layering

livvyland-blog-olivia-watson-austin-fashion-lifestyle-blogger-texas-green-utility-jacket-fall-layered-layers-outfit-inspiration-indigo-road-fringe-booties-4Another thing to love about cooler weather? Layering! Pair a utility jacket with a button up tunic and top it off with a cozy fringe¬†scarf – viola, ready to take on that crisp fall air! Once you get inside, nix the jacket and keep the scarf over the top for a cute and casual look, perfect for the office or lunch or a grocery run…hey, really whatever you’re up to! Given that we’re neaaaaring the end of 80 degree temps in Austin and hopefully moving into the 70s here soon, rocking a button up tank with a jacket will definitely suffice the current temperature. Side note: how cute would this button up tunic¬†be under a chunky cardigan sweater? Love the versatility from just one key piece that takes you from season to season!read more

Fall Trend: Cozy Vests

livvyland-olivia-watson-fur-vestPretty vests¬†are definite winners this season! I am loving the look of a gorgeous¬†vest over a long sleeve tee or dress, it¬†adds that perfectly cozy fall touch to¬†an outfit! …Not to mention, these things are SO comfy! It’s like wearing a blanket without actually looking like you’re wearing a blanket…and I’m all about that! ūüėČ I picked out some favorites I spotted around the online shopping scene, so you can pick out whatever speaks to your style! I just scooped up this one by bb dakota and I am in LOVE. (I’m wearing a small for size reference!). Ps.

livvyland-blog-olivia-watson-dee-elle-fall-outfit-inspiration-olive-green-shift-dress-nordstrom-austin-texas-fashion-blogger-toms-majorca-suede-booties-brahmin-handbag-6One of the things I love most about this season = fall colors! Soft neutrals that pair so well together and just give off that effortlessly cool vibe, like olive green, taupe and that mahogany/chestnut color…they all just mesh perfectly! Today I’m featuring this gorgeous (and oh so affordable!) shift dress by Dee Elle. I’ve always liked their dresses, they just seem to fit really well and have¬†super flattering styles….I’m all about that! ūüėČ

I paired the dress with my favorite open toe booties, Brahmin handbag, fedora hat and arrowhead necklace. As temps drop, just add a scarf and trade the peep toe heels for leggings and booties or riding boots Рvoila, so cute and versatile!read more

Life Lately – Ohh, Stress!

coffee-bedGood morning! It’s finally the weekend and I could not be happier! These past few weeks have been pretty darn hectic and stressful, and it’s actually gotten to that point where the song “…Everybody’s workin’ for the weekend” is starting to feel more real than ever in my life..which is something I hoped I’d never have to say! (Ps. Isn’t it funny how songs often just click once you’re in the same situation as the lyrics?…always so interesting when you’ve listened to a song for ages and then all of a sudden it resonates more than ever..!).

Little Black Jumpsuit

livvyland-blog-olivia-watson-black-jumpsuit-hotel-san-jose-austin-texas-fashion-blogger-1‘Tis the season for Austin weather that’s not quite cool enough to layer up for a night out, yet not exactly hot enough to go full shorts-mode either. Thus, say hello to the little black jumpsuit! Perfect for those crisp evenings or pre-holiday events where a cocktail dress appears too¬†dressy and a pair of skinny jeans just won’t make the cut. Also…how cute is this black jumpsuit with pretty lace detailing at the bust?! I am in LOVE!

5 Fall Must-Have Items

Please forgive me for not having posted throughout this past week – things got pretty crazy with work/life and I had to take a step back from blogging for a few days. I will explain more tomorrow…life update post on the horizon, yay! (All good things, just life is so busy I can’t even think straight at the moment!). However…whether or not I may appear more scatterbrained¬†than ever (lack of sleep will do that to ya…), the one thing I can always count on to make me feel a little less like a crazy person is to dress put together. Aka, I may feel like a zombie, but I definitely don’t look like one (well, at least I don’t think I look like one, ha)…especially if you add oversize sunnies to my outfit…gotta cover those tired eyes! ūüėČ
