Thermal Tee, Faux Fur Vest & Ankle Booties

livvyland-blog-olivia-watson-fall-outfit-bb-dakota-sheerling-vest-cozy-fall-outfit-inspiration-ankle-booties-free-people-thermal-top-12Hello there! How was your weekend? Blake and I spent the past couple of days with friends from out of town and yesterday afternoon had the pleasure of attending a beautiful brunch wedding. I sort of fell in love with the “brunch wedding” concept…so much fun waking up and looking forward to a romantic occasion filled with mimosas, breakfast tacos and dancing by 2pm. The icing on the cake? I was asleep by 9pm, ha! I woke up today feeling so refreshed and happy that I was able to spend time with dear friends I love so much. Not to mention, weddings in general just make you feel good (and it was an outdoor event and Austin weather did not disappoint!), so it was a lovely escape from a weekend spent working (…as I normally do!). Thus, I am excited to start Monday on a high note and take on the day – I hope you’re feeling the same way, too!

As I mentioned last week, we’re finally experiencing fall temperatures here in Austin and I could not be more excited! This time of year calls for cozy vests that pair well with breezy thermal tees, jeans and of course, a fabulous pair of ankle booties… So, let’s get down to it, shall we? 😉

Favorite Cozy Sweaters & Cardigans For Fall

Hey there ladies! I hope your work week is ending strong! This week has been absolute madness in my world, but it’s all good because my mom is headed over to help out with some upcoming blog collaborations – somehow moms always know how to save the day (…even when you’re 26-years-old, ha!). Needless to say, I’m very thankful for her help and company! 🙂 So, stay tuned for some fun posts headed to my blog & Instagram feed (psst…check my Instagram feed in the morning, I’ll be hosting a fabulous giveaway!!).

There’s one thing that always makes a weekend (or let’s be honest…really any day) better – sweater shopping! I am ALL about comfort and coziness, and I’m super excited to finally round up my favorite sweaters and cardigans that are SO perfect for these lovely, crisp fall days! And in case you’re wondering if I’m still sweating while snapping “fall” outfit photos outside in Austin (ohh y’all, the things us bloggers will do for the ‘gram, I tell ya ha!), I am VERY pleased to say that we’ve officially entered gorgeous fall weather…so those thermal tees layered under an ultra soft cardigan? Finally necessary! Well then, let’s get to the good stuff, shall we? 😉

Best Ankle Booties For Fall

Hello there! How’s your week going? Blake has been crazy busy with work this week, so I feel like I am half going crazy spending so much time with myself and my laptop, ha! Woes of working from home when you’re a super social person: me in my own head for too long! Luckily, my friend Kayla is headed over shortly for a coffee date, so it won’t be long before I get some much needed social interaction haha! The good news? All this alone time has me doing some major online shopping research, and lucky YOU because I’ve rounded up 10 of my very favorite booties for fall! And pssst…SEVEN are under $100…Mmm, you’re welcome! 😉

Instagram Travel Diary: Newport, Rhode Island & NYC!

np2Hey there, gals! How’s your week going? I’m writing this post from Las Vegas (we’re here for Blake’s cousins’ co-bach/bachelorette trip) – truth be told, Blake is sound asleep next to me (it’s noon..ha!) …let’s just say in the Blake vs. Vegas match, Vegas is winning haha. Thus, I figured I should take this moment of peace and quiet to share a roundup my last trip to Newport, Rhode Island and NYC!

If you follow me on Instagram, you’ll have noticed I spent a wonderful week hopping from Newport to NYC! I flew up to Newport to visit with the Brahmin Handbag team (their headquarters is about 30 minutes away from Newport) and meet with some other fabulous bloggers who also adore Brahmin as much as I do…and it was a total DREAM! …But more on that further into this post.. 😉
