My Go-To Travel Outfit (And Some News!)

Hey gals, hope you had a wonderful weekend! I’ve been in hustle mode as we prep for another big trip…aaand surprise, we leave today! Headed on a two-week vacay with Blake’s fam (aunts, uncles, cousins…the works) through the UK, Ireland and Scotland…I am SO excited!!

As I’ve been traveling more frequently this year, I’ve gotten pretty darn good (…if I do say so myself!) at finding looks that are both comfortable for a 9+ hour flight and stylish. Give me joggers, a cozy tank + slip-on sneakers and I’m a happy camper at the airport!

livvyland-try-onHappy weekend, loves! If you follow me on Instagram, you may have seen my Nordstrom Anniversary Sale “top picks” try-on haul over on my Insta-Stories…and if you did, thanks for tuning in!

TONS of adorable fall options (and quite a few summer items, too) at crazy low prices…time to stock up! 😉 Sooo…let’s get to it!

Nordstrom Anniversary Sale Early Access!

Christmas in July has arrived! 😉 Happy Nordstrom Anniversary Sale! Today is the first day of Early Access (which means only Nordstrom credit/debit card holders have access to all the new products at suuuuper sale prices – trust me, it’s worth getting a card for + super easy to sign up online!!) and I am SO excited to share my favorite picks from the sale!

The Anniversary Sale features brand new fall pieces from all our favorite brands, but for crazy low prices…it’s kind of a big deal and THE perfect time to stock up on light layers (…y’all, that striped top is $18!), fall kicks (I bought the slides & peep toe booties above), jackets (BlankNYC vegan leather jacket for under $65…yaaaas!) and of course some summer-to-fall dresses that can be worn with sandals or heels now and booties or OTK boots in the fall.

10 Things To Do In Barcelona

livvyland-blog-olivia-watson-travel-fashion-blogger-barcelona-spain-costa-brava-pals-beach-catalonia-3Ohh my heart! THIS. TRIP. My two best friends, so much laughter, the perfect setting…can we do it all over again?! See above? That’s Elissa, my bestie since age 15…we go waaaay back. She’s a flight attendant and used her magical powers to bring me and our other bestie (see below) Ben, to Barcelona, Spain for a week of pure bliss. We called this trip our “10-year-friendiversary” (…even though it’s been over 10 years now…any excuse to take a bff trip to Europe, right?). Ps. If you’re curious if we watched ‘Vicki, Cristina, Barcelona’ in preparation for this vacay, that answer is a definite yes. (I also watched Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants prior to Greece…no judgement, okay? 😉 ).

Days spent at the beach, nights dancing until the sun comes up, jazz concerts at random Airbnb apartments, sight seeing, tapas eating, cava drinking…excited to share a list of 10 must-do activities in Barcelona!

Psst…if you’re headed somewhere sunny, I’ve got ya covered – sharing more darling striped dresses and rompers!

New York City Strolling

livvyland-blog-olivia-watson-nyc-tribeca-mom-jeans-brahmin-tan-charleston-tote-neckerchief-5Sorry for the radio silence on LL this week (…and my Insta feed), I’ve had a bad case of the flu that pretty much kicked my butt! Not going to lie, as awful as I’ve been feeling, I think it’s my body telling me to “cool muhh jets” and literally do a whole lotta  n-o-t-h-i-n-g  for a week straight. So! That’s exactly what I’ve been doing. Movie watching, Netflix and actual chilling (Masters of None is SO GOOD!), going to sleep at 6pm for the past five days straight. Blake has been the best care taker and sweetest husband…I definitely lucked out, he is a true gem!

Switching gears…let’s talk about this look! High rise + cropped flare jeans (omg I am not wearing skinny jeans, it’s a miracle!), the cutest mustard neckerchief and a goooorgeous tote bag in my favorite color…

3 Favorites: Travel Sandals

livvyland-blog-olivia-watson-park-guell-birkenstock-yara-oiled-leather-travel-sandals-shoesHey gals! Been a while since I’ve done a “5 Favorites” post here on LL. Throughout my Spain travels, I received a lot of questions about my favorite travel sandals (…in particular, who makes the ones I’m wearing above). Thus, today I’m excited share my go-to summer sandals for traveling (and everyday wear!). Though I normally share five faves, I narrowed my list down to just three because I’m pretty particular about my travel sandals…gotta make sure you can walk for miles in these! (…and I swear by each one below!).

Poppy Floral Mini Dress

View More:’s something about poppy red that has me swooning these days. It’s such a fun, happy color and it goes great with cognac accessories + shoes (which y’all know is a must for me! 😉 ). This little floral number is certain to be one of those adorable dresses on repeat this summer – my galpal Elissa and I rotated wearing it in Barcelona, ha! Such a breezy material and just makes you feel ultra good and feminine. It’s really the perfect dress from day to night and work to play!
