Drop Waist Dress

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!!).

livvyland-blog-olivia-watson-austin-texas-fashion-blogger-bell-sleeve-maroon-wine-burgundy-oxblood-dress-lace-up-heels-4Happy Thursday, gals! I really can’t believe this week is nearly over.. it zoomed on by! (…Not mad about it either, ha!).  The Nordstrom Anniversary Sale is almost over, just 4 days left until all of the new fall items go back up to full price! Like this adorable bell sleeve dress (comes in SIX color options… it’s the cutest!) and my lace-up pumps.. are these not gorgeous?! If there was ever a time to scoop up super cute fall clothes smack in the middle of summer (..because yes, that does sound really weird, I’m aware 😉 ), the time is now! Trust me, you may just kick yourself come Monday morning when you realize you could have saved $50 on these heels had you bought them today… #justsayin’ 😉

My Minimalist Makeup Routine

livvyland-blog-juice-beauty-minimalist-organic-makeup-everyday-routine-4Wahoo! Today is my FIRST ever beauty post! I have been hesitant to venture into the beauty realm of the blog world for a number of reasons (which I’ll share in this post, fear not!), but after giving a number of Juice Beauty products a try starting in March (from lotion to night cream and lipstick to loose powder – this stuff is wonderful, trust me), I am finally ready and feeling really good about sharing my makeup routine with y’all! You may have seen Juice Beauty products at Whole Foods or ULTA, they’re known for being a vegan skincare and makeup line, madde with certified organic ingredients… and I love that about them, too!! Take a look at my step-by-step routine and get the scoop on all my skincare and makeup favorites!

Olive Dress

livvyland-blog-olivia-watson-nordstrom-cowl-neck-body-con-dress-lace-up-heels-austin-texas-fashion-blogger-4Hello there! How’s your week going? I am currently writing this from my favorite coffeehouse… sitting in a cinnamon bun food coma and feeling half guilty (…I am 6 weeks away from the wedding, right? *insert monkey emoji covering its eyes here*) and told myself I’d “be good” to my body and try to eat cleaner leading up to the big day… but alas, they ran out of breakfast tacos (…because that’s better for me, right? 😉 ) sooo… the cinnamon bun it was! Oh well, I can start at lunchtime, I guess…ha!

I posted this outfit on my Instagram feed last night and I had so many people ask about this dress! Thus, forgive the iPhone photography (I left my memory card at home when we went out to shoot this look..oops!) buuut here it is in blog post form – and PS. my dress & shoes are both on S A L E for just a few days more during the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale!
