Bell Sleeves & Lace Up Heels

livvyland-blog-olivia-watson-fall-outfit-lace-up-heels-bell-sleeve-oxblood-top-austin-texas-fashion-blogger-2Well, hello there! It’s been about a week since my last post and I must say, I’m feeling so refreshed and happy and relaxed…and basically this whole honeymoon thing is pretty darn wonderful! Blake and I have two days left in Greece, then we’re headed back home! We both hit “lobster status” yesterday after failing to load up on sunscreen during a catamaran tour (ah!), so today we’re spending some time indoors sipping greek coffee and hiding from the sun…ha! I must admit, it feels pretty lovely to sit down and work on a new blog post…getting the best of both worlds here as I write this post in our cozy room with the the cliffs of Santorini in full view from our open balcony doors…absolutely zero complaints here!

Though I’m still in summer-mode in Greece (currently dressed in a crop top & denim shorts!), I hear it’s finally fall back home…so onto fall fashion, it is! A few fall trends I am super excited about are bell sleeves and of course, lace up heels. Classy, flattering, sexy…all of the above. 🙂 I’m spilling the details below, so keep reading to get the scoop!

Cozy Fall Outfit: Oversized Cardigan & Distressed Denim

Hello there! Y’all…this is my first post as a MARRIED WOMAN! Wahoooooo! Second, I am actually writing this post from our adorable little abode for the next few days in Athens, Greece! As I look at the clock on my laptop, I see it’s 3:45am in Austin (it’s 8 hours later here, so things are already movin’ and shakin’ as I look out the window…but Blake and I are relaxing with coffee and our jammies inside, ha!)… thus, hopefully a fresh post on my blog brightens up your Wednesday morning. 🙂 Buuut let’s be honest, how could it not when I’m featuring the coziest oversize cardigan (a fall wardrobe staple, in my opinion – you’ll thank me later if you decide to scoop this one up for yourself…basically feels like a giant blanket but looks really chic), the cutest little peplum tank top, go-to skinny jeans (very budget friendly) and my favorite ankle booties. Read on for all the details!

livvyland-blog-olivia-watson-austin-texas-articles-of-society-distressed-skinny-jeans-topshop-off-shoulder-tie-sleeves-striped-top-fashion-blogger-outfit-1-2Hello loves! Sorry for being MIA these past few days – it’s been a crazy week in my world! We are two days away from the big day and I could not be more excited!! I’ve been running around town like a mad woman picking up last minute things (we scooped up our wedding bands (the rings)…they’re so beautiful!) and getting in a few appointments (laser hair removal FTW, wahoo! …But more on that later, ha! 😉 ). My bridesmaids (and bridesman) that live out of town have slowly started making their way to Austin and it’s been SO wonderful have them here…I miss them all so much, so this weekend is truly a treat to have everyone together for a few days celebrating! …I am certain there will be a LOT of tears (we are a veeeery emotional bunch, ha) and a ton of laughs – literally my friends are ridiculous and super silly… Can’t wait to soak it all in!

But first, you knowwww I gotta get y’all my outfit details for this adorable look! 😉 Seriously…this tie sleeve top = so classy and beautiful (and very comfortable) and those skinny jeans have just the right amount of distressed detail and come at a very budget friendly price! (…Just $64!!).

Boho Floral Dress & OTK Boots

livvyland-blog-olivia-watson-fall-outfit-over-the-knee-boots-tegan-mini-dress-steve-madden-eternul-brahmin-priscilla-satchel-2Ohh the ‘ol boho dress and over the knee boots combo…one of my absolute favorites for fall!! This pretty floral Free People dress in particular is quite magical on its own, let alone with a pair of killer OTK boots (y’all, these are very budget friendly!!) and a stunning structured handbag in the most beautiful rust color. I posted a quick shot of this look to my Instagram stories and had an influx of gals wanting my outfit details, so I figured I’d pick up the pace and get this post up asap!

Ps. Did you notice I went a taaaad darker? I visited my go-to hair stylist, Kacie, over at Milk & Honey Salon (she is a hair-stylist-goddess woman…trust me, she’s good!!) and she gave me more “natural” color and a deep conditioning pamper sesh over the weekend, just in time to get all beautified for the wedding! She is also THE best at those effortlessly cool beach waves (I soooo badly need to watch 20 YouTube tutorials to master this hair style, ha!) and of course I had to use my pretty new hair for some blog photos… 😉

Blush Pink Pleated Midi Skirt

livvyland-blog-olivia-watson-topshop-blush-pink-pleated-high-waist-skirt-white-top-girly-feminine-outfit-7Hello there! How’s your week going? I’ve been truckin’ right along – anyone else ready for Friday yet? Ha! After a few final wedding meetings and 5 hours at a coffeehouse in an attempt to decrease my email inbox number, I am very ready for a strong beverage! The good news: Pam, the mother of one of my best friends, makes a killer martini (true story: we refer to her as “the martini lady” because it’s kind of her thing haha!) and I’m headed over to her abode for a cocktail and a catchup sesh right after I hit publish on this post. It’s so fun being friends with my friends’ parents… always a good time and the best conversation! Definitely one of those days where I need to shut my laptop and enjoy some real human interaction! (Haha, ah!).

But before I go, we muuuuust talk about this insanely gorgeous, beautiful, classy, feminine…okay you get it, this skirt is PERFECT! Blush pink is the color of the moment and for good reason, it’s gorgeous and adds that perfectly girly touch! Wear to work, to a night with the gals, on a date with your beau, to an interview… okay you see where I’m goin’ with this one… this skirt is VERY versatile (…and VERY fabulous, if I do say so myself! 😉 ).

Little Striped Dress (On Sale!)

livvyland-blog-olivia-watson-austin-texas-fashion-blogger-pink-wall-coffee-run-summer-lace-up-back-striped-sun-dress-vans-sneakers-1Happy 4-day week, y’all! If you visited my blog over the weekend, you probably saw my previous post featuring the AMAZING Nordstrom 40% sale (that just so happens to keep going until September 11th, wahoo, more time to shop! 😉 ). That said, I wanted to bust out one of my favorite little striped dresses that’s currently on major markdown for just $22!! (Reg. $38). It comes in 3 color options and at that price, the more the merrier! 😉

While it’s still a sauna in Austin (it’s literally 90 degrees out as I write this post), I figured all my southern gals can get some great use out of this dress without any added layers just yet – and all the ladies who follow me in California and up north can rock this cute little dress with a jacket over it (add a utility jacket, leather jacket, suede jacket…you name it, it’s gonna be cute!) as cooler temps head our way.

Hey gals! Hope your long weekend has been wonderful, thus far! 🙂 I’m excited to [hopefully] make it even more fabulous by sharing a new post highlighting some AMAZING sale picks from the Nordstrom Labor Day sale (that actually runs through Sept. 11th, so you’ve got ample time to shop away!). I scoured the Nords website (and even ventured to the mall this afternoon to scope a few things out in person), and I must say…this sale is SO GOOD! Lots of brands we love (Free People, Rebecca Minkoff, Sam Edelman) at very affordable prices – just in time for fall!

Also…say whaaaaat we are TWO weeks away from the wedding, “I literally can’t even” is a real phrase running through my mind…ha! Hold that thought while I go chug some coffee in the corner here…haha ah! All good…right about now is when it’s necessary to throw on a super cute top & pair of jeans and grab a glass of wine (or just hand me the bottle, really..) and let all my stresses go for a couple of hours. Sounds pretty darn wonderful if you ask me! 😉 And hey, the Friday of a 3-day-weekend should not be spent feeling bogged down or stressed out. (…Yep, totally just going to keep telling myself that! 😉 ).

Now that I’ve joked/vented about my to-do list (thanks for listening, friends!), let’s talk about this caaa-ute bustier off-shoulder top and denim combo!! Seriously…is this top not SO perfect?! I’ve got major heart eyes over here…
