How To Dress Up A Chunky Sweater

livvyland-blog-olivia-watson-austin-texas-fashion-blogger-mauve-blush-sweater-white-denim-peep-toe-booties-fall-outfit-idea-8Hey ladies – happy Halloween! I hope your week is off to a great start and you’re indulging in aaaall the candy today. 😉 Blake and I are excited to go trick or treating with my niece and nephew for a bit, then head home and pass out candy in our neighborhood…it’s our first Halloween in the new house…kind of a milestone, right? Ready to meet some more neighbors and see all the cute kiddos in their costumes – big day ahead!

As y’all know, sweaters are probably my favorite wardrobe piece when it comes to fall and winter wardrobes. They’re ultra cozy, flattering and can be dressed up or down. Normally when you think of a chunky sweater, it’s paired with jeans and cool sneakers or flats…so today I’m excited to style the cuuuutest sweater in a more dressed up way!

Sweater Weather

livvyland-blog-olivia-watson-mauve-mock-neck-sweater-levis-501-jeans-urban-outfitters-fortress-of-inca-tan-leather-slides-5Hey friends! How’s your week going? Things have been busy but good in my world – my best friend Elissa is still in town and so we’ve been spending tons of time together (yay!) and yesterday took my niece and nephew on a little play date to an inflatable jump gym. The place is HUGE and we were literally the only people there…soooo of course Liss and I kicked off our shoes and jumped around (and sweat a LOT…and realized we are old and our bodies aren’t as agile as they once were haha) for over an hour. It was sooo fun! I miss being a kid…so carefree and easy. Adulthood is weird, ha! Anyhoo, after stuffing our faces with concession stand treats (ice cream, Cheetos, candy, gatorade), Elissa and I were pretty much zombies while the kiddos danced to the Trolls soundtrack on the ride home. Needless to say, it was a great day – always so thankful for quality time with my family and friends…social media is cool and all, but it’s the real life stuff that matters!

Aaand now for my outfit details… 😉 I am forever failing at a solid transition from life to “okay let’s talk about this sweater”…ya know? Ha, doing my best over here! (But seriously…this sweater is SO GOOD!).

Coffee Talk With Nespresso

nespresso-7 “Dear caffeine, please give me the strength to get through the day!” 😉 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. 🙂 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! 😉 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!
