First things first when it comes to a peaceful weekend: dress the part! Casual graphic tee (loving art print tees lately), go-to distressed denim and the coziest cardigan. Hand me a good book and a big ‘ol cup of coffee and I’ll be one happy lady…

Coffee Talk With Nespresso

nespresso-7 “Dear caffeine, please give me the strength to get through the day!” ūüėČ Anyone else feel like this is the go-to, half-asleep conversation with their espresso machine in the morning? As soon as I see those blinking lights and the capsule producing that smooth, perfect espresso shot, I know it’s aaaaall going to be okay! Alright, perhaps¬†I’m over-sharing when it comes to my love for coffee. But then again, coffee is not just a beverage to me, it’s a lifestyle that provides energy (gotta tackle those photo edits!), peace (it’s my favorite way to spend “me time”) and often a way to enjoy a catch-up sesh with friends or family at home. Without a doubt, sipping coffee is my favorite daily ritual.

The Perfect Fall Floral Dress (40% Off!)

Happy Saturday, friends! Hope your weekend is off to a great start. ūüôā Blake and I are enjoying ACL festival this weekend (Jay-Z killed it last night!) and excited to take on day two today. I am a granny so am only going Friday/Saturday…can’t hang like I used to…ha! This year has been particularly special for a couple of¬†reasons…reason one is that I’m partnering with¬†TicketCity¬†for the fest and living the VIP life (first time for me…free food + drinks/swag bags, beauty stations (how cool is that?!) and lots of shade and air conditioning…no complaints here! ūüėČ Reason two is that I’ve realized¬†I’m not quite the festival gal I thought I was and am now hanging with the parents that bring lawn chairs and sit waaaay in the back haha. It was 8pm last night and I legit thought it was 11pm…who have I become?! I watched all the college kids dancing their butts off to DJ sets (glitter in their hair, on their faces) and I slowly but surely came to terms with¬†the fact that I am getting older…and I fully embrace it. I got home completely sober and watched an episode of RHONY (current guilty pleasure). ACL by day, sweatpants and fully hydrated + catching up on my shows by night…life is good at age 27!

Cozy In Cashmere

livvyland-blog-olivia-watson-free-people-vegan-leather-mini-skirt-cashmere-tan-sweater-sezane-studded-bucket-bag-9A cold front hit Austin this morning and ohhh my goodness I could not be more grateful! I went for a long walk this morning to clear my head and soak up the gorgeous, crisp weather and felt revived as soon as I got home. Nothing like a true season change to bring some positive juju and make me feel inspired and motivated. I hope y’all are having a great start to your week, too!

One of my favorite color combinations at the moment is black and tan. I know I know, 2016 Olivia would have been terrified to wear so much black (always been my constant struggle!), but 2017 Olivia has finally gotten into a rhythm of incorporating more black pieces…and I must admit, I am LOVING it! Chic and timeless, you can’t go wrong investing in black staples to build your wardrobe. Aaand speaking of fall staples: this ultra cozy cashmere sweater (under $100!).

Floral Jumpsuit

livvyland-blog-olivia-watson-austin-texas-fashion-blogger-floral-jumpsuit-free-people-black-leather-jacket-8Happy weekend, loves! Any big plans on the agenda? Blake and I celebrated his cousin’s 50th birthday with a giant shindig last night and we had so much fun! It was “decade” themed – so guests¬†wore costumes¬†from any decade between the 70s-90s…everyone got decked out! Blake went as 1970s John McEnroe and I dressed as 70s tennis pro Chrissie Evert…wigs, sweatbands, tube socks…we went full-on major dork mode (…the best!). Anyhoo, it’s currently 6pm and I am still recovering from my hangover (…if that’s any indication of a reaaaally solid night haha) and sore from all the dancing! Blake literally had to drag me off the dance floor and to our car…get some tequila in me and apparently I go from calm granny to crazy party girl…ha!

Chic In Neutrals


Hey gals! How’s your week going? I’ve been battling a serious case of the flu the last couple of days and thus, been in a bit of zombie-mode. Sleeping a lot, drinking tons of fluids and watching too much Real Housewives (…seriously someone stop me….it’s getting out of hand, ha!). This morning I felt well enough to edit some outfit photos from the weekend and I’m excited to share a go-to fall uniform (…and head-to-toe neutrals look) featuring a killer pair of ankle booties (and a fun red pair further into this post…).

Coziest Fall Sweater

livvyland-blog-olivia-watson-austin-texas-fashion-blogger-free-people-oversize-striped-sweater-boho-chic-3
Happy first day of October! Hope y’all are soaking up some lovely weather (it is absolutely stunning today in Austin!) and relaxing this weekend. After a crazy few weeks of travel (Amsterdam, Iceland, New York & Los Angeles…wowza!), I am so thankful to be home and¬†resting. I had an absolute blast visiting friends and creating some amazing memories, but I can definitely tell my body needs some sleep and lounge time without an agenda. Thus, this weekend was spent being a complete couch potato and I have zero complaints about it! ūüėČ

That said, I’m keeping it extra short & sweet today! Sharing all my outfit details below…(this sweater = magical!!).
