5 Favorites: Gingham For Summer

livvyland-blog-olivia-watson-gingham-mini-skirt-bandana-madewell-white-button-up-courier-topThe one print that just screams summer: Gingham! My love for stripes is pretty darn fierce, but once those summer months approach, I find myself gravitating towards all things gingham. Skirts, tops, swimsuits, shoes…you name it, if it comes in this darling print, I probably have it in my shopping cart or on my wish list! Excited to share 5 favorite gingham pieces to kick your summer wardrobe into high gear…

Hey friends and happy Monday! Hope y’all had a wonderful, relaxing weekend. 🙂 I shot this post last week and have been dying to get it up ever since…the reason? How CUTE is this backpack?!

This thing is not only swoon-worthy, but it’s seriously spacious…and I’m all about that! From work to play to travel, this beautiful backpack by Brahmin is the ultimate accessory.

Weekly Chat: Quick Glimpse At Our New House!

Hello friends! I am pretty darn excited to share a little peek into our new home today! These are all iPhone snaps…and yes, I definitely took these with the intention of sending them to mom and not posting on my blog haha. Buuut after so much wonderful feedback on my Instagram Stories last night (I did a mini-before/after progress report), I figured it would be super fun to document our house little by little. I’ll be posting full room reveals as we get things together (lots of fun ideas!), so stay tuned for those over the next few months (…err, year? No pressure, right?! 😉 ).

Disclaimer: we are still living in a state of empty boxes (like…everywhere, ah!), piles of things to put away (…that’s what the weekend is for, right?) and of course, lots of open space that will be filled in time (I know, I know, those bookshelves above are lookin’ scarce!). All that said – we are having SO much fun settling in and it still feels surreal that this precious house is our very own. Blake and I are so grateful to have found this gem and even though not a single room is complete at the moment, we still sit in bed with coffee each morning and look around in awe. Needless to say, we are loving every second in our new space! Sooo….without further adieu, here we go!

5 Favorites: White Leather Sneakers

livvyland-blog-olivia-watson-flat-lay-outfit-striped-tie-front-top-white-greats-royal-sneakers-one-teaspoon-bandit-shortsI received so many questions about my white leather sneakers while in Scandinavia, so today I’m sharing my exact shoes and four other awesome white sneaker options for y’all!

You can’t go wrong investing in a cute pair of neutral sneaks, they go with EVERYTHING! Trust me, I didn’t think I’d end up wearing mine as often as I did on our trip, but I am so glad I brought them along because they quickly became a daily go-to for me. I LOVE that they’re leather, too – it adds a fashion forward update to a standard pair of white sneakers, definitely recommend a pair!

Growing up in Austin, I’m definitely used to the warmer temperatures and look forward to dressing for the season…hello, adorable cold shoulder top (…in stripes, of course 😉 ), with high rise denim shorts and my go-to ankle booties!
