livvyland-blog-olivia-watson-austin-texas-fashion-style-blogger-jos-coffeehouse-south-congress-avenue-90s-style-express-black-bomber-jacket-vans-slip-on-sneakers-casual-weekend-outfit-2Hi ladies! Hope your week is off to a great start! 🙂 I’ve been in go-go-go mode working on some fun collaborations and lots of new Style Me Pretty posts to come (wahoo! Working on my bach trip roundup feature…can’t wait to share!) – and I also got to venture over to South Congress Avenue and stop by one of my favorite coffeehouses, Jo’s Coffee, for a suuuuper yummy Iced Turbo (espresso, chocolate, hazelnut, cold brew coffee and cream…omg YUM) and some galpal time with one of my best friends! …Who I also asked to snap some photos while we were there (..pretty sure my friends just expect this by now haha) because that bomber jacket + striped dress = in love and had to share with y’all!

I’ve seen so many girls rocking bomber jackets all over Pinterest and after going on a hunt to find the perfect one (…and within my budget range!), I found it at Express! Y’all…this thing is SO cute for all seasons (…I mean, it’ll get cooler at night in Austin soon, right? 😉 …and if not, the ‘ol 90’s style around-the-waist thing works in the meantime, ha!) and I love it with the high neck striped dress (on super sale!). Express is all about showcasing that effortlessly cool, 90s style right now, and I am totally on board!

From dresses (on sale as low as $10!) to cutoff denim shorts in a ton of flattering fits (…I may have tried on the entire denim table display haha), let’s just say you should get yourself over to Express and do some summer shopping! (Psst…lots of amazing online deals right now!).

I’m wearing a size XS in the bomber jacket (it runs a little big, so I recommend sizing down) and a small in the dress (I like some breathe room in my body-con dresses!). This jacket comes in quite a few color options (olive green, burgundy) and my striped dress was just marked down to $23 (down from $40!), so definitely go check out those cute styles + deals.

As we finally hit summer, I am loving sneakers with dresses for that casual, on-the-go vibe. It’s super cute and also so comfy and easy to wear all day long while running errands or meeting with friends.

Alright ladies, I’m closing my laptop & heading over to my first wedding dress fitting appointment – can’t wait! Y’all…we’re less than THREE months away…so crazy! Hope you all have a marvelous Tuesday!! XO

      Thanks so much, Paula!! You’re so so sweet, it went great!! The wedding is coming up so quick..putting on the dress felt more real than ever…eek!! And yes, the Iced Turbo is one of my fave indulgences, ha!

    I miss Jo’s! St. Edward’s has two Jo’s Coffees on campus, so I would get an Iced Turbo and Taco Deli breakfast tacos before my morning classes. Ahhh college, how I miss thee!

    Also, that dress is so adorable! Got to love those striped dresses!

    • livvy says:

      Ah man, an iced turbo & taco deli before class = best morning ever! I used to work at Kendra Scott a few years ago, so every morning before meetings we’d get that same combo…seriously the best! We live across from a Coffee Bean that serves Taco Deli and even that gets dangerous now, ha!

    This is SO CUTE! I’m loving slip ons with dresses lately! And I’m totally getting flashbacks of when I visited ATX in the fall and grabbed a coffee at Jo’s 🙂

      Aww, yes!! You’ll have to come visit in the spring or summer (…maybe end of summer, it’s SO hot right now it’s kind of insane) and go to all the swimming holes and hit the lake, so much fun in the warmer months!! (…Granted, fall in Austin probably isn’t even cold so you may have done some of that haha!). Either way, come visit again!! 😉
