Costa Brava Bliss

livvyland-blog-olivia-watson-fashion-travel-blogger-shop-spring-solid-and-striped-sophia-one-piece-swimsuit-periwinkle-blue-costa-brava-pals-beach-barecelona-spain-2You see that face above? That’s the face of someone who is relaxed, rested, taking it easy and overall…happy. The past 10 days traveling have been overwhelmingly wonderful – I look out at the ocean and am filled with gratitude. To be here in Spain with my closest friends, all of us growing and going through different things yet able to sync up…to take a break from our busy lives and prioritize each others company, it’s something quite special and treasured to me!

Bringing Back The Skort

livvyland-blog-olivia-watson-new-york-city-cobble-hill-brooklyn-modcloth-skort-peter-pan-collar-top-vans-classic-sneakers-summer-outfit-13Yes. You read correctly…I said SKORT! As in, the shorts + skirt hybrid that was the “it” thing to wear in the 90s. At first I was hesitant…but then I tried this cutie on and BAM not only was the fit amazing, it gave me some serious pep in my step! You get the feminine vibe of a skirt, mixed perfectly with the carefree feel of shorts – and that, my friends, is a definite win in my book! Bend, snap, skip, jump…you name it, this outfit lets you (and kind of encourages you) to do it all.

Weekly Chat: Life Update & Sharing Some Travel News!

Hello there! How’s your week going? I’m beyond elated to take a break from blog life and do a little traveling with my best friends this week. Things in my world have been a lot more hectic than I’ve shared recently…so stepping away from responsibility and my inbox is a very welcomed (and necessary) break! I thought that “working for myself” would allow for a lot more vacation days than a 9-5, but in fact, recently it’s been the opposite. When you’re your own boss, it’s that much harder to turn it off…and that much more challenging not to feel guilty when you do.

12 Colorful Throw Pillows

livvyland-blog-olivia-watson-interiors-home-decor-tribal-print-throw-pillows-colorful-urban-outfitters-3As I dive deeper into decorating the new house, adding bursts of color and texture to a room is made a lot easier with the help of a few adorable throw pillows! I gravitate towards white, airy spaces with hints of color here and there, so investing in key neutral pieces when it comes to furniture (our sofa is light grey, the rug is cream with a grey design as seen above) and then filling in the space with cozy color pops is my plan of action. As y’all saw in my record player nook reveal post from last week, I’m digging a mix of solid and printed pillows. Today I’m excited to share a few more fun throw pillows that will add some personality to your space (…and of course, bring out the happy vibes – which y’all know I’m aaaall about!).

Must-Have Summer Bucket Bag

A breezy top, high rise button-up jeans and a fabulous handbag…I’m ready to take on the day in this outfit! (Look good, feel good, right?). I’m a firm believer in the power of a new handbag – and especially one that’s unique yet timeless, and bonus points if it can effortlessly mix into my daily wardrobe. The Brahmin Southcoast Collection never ceases to impress me, and their latest line has me swooning. Soft leather in relaxed silhouettes with bohemian details (those tassels!)…it’s a tough call to choose just one, but the Isabelle Drawstring Bag caught my eye.
