My Hat Obsession Continues

It’s small, it’s chic, it can feel dressed up or casual…BIG fan over here. I feel like I’ve been pinning this hat for months (Pinterest is my very favorite for outfit inspiration! You can follow me here), and I had some fun styling this look for a fun, funky  date night outfit. True story: Blake LOVED this outfit! He isn’t always super vocal about what I wear (…let’s just say I got a flatline when I wore my overalls in Japan, haha!), but he was definitely into this one. Atta way! 😉

But it isn’t just any red, it’s poppy red. It’s extra bright and adds a fun energy I didn’t know my wardrobe needed – until I slipped into these shoes

Ohh those darling straw/wicker/rattan (whatever you want to call it 😉 ) basket bags we keep seeing pop up on Pinterest and our Instagram feeds! They are feminine, a fun handbag change for these warmer months ahead and make for the perfect addition to any look, for any occasion (love that seashell clutch for a beach wedding!). I have a few rattan bags on rotation (you know the ones: see here & here), and I’ve scoured the Internet to pick a few more fabulous finds for y’all. Let’s get to it!

Why I’m Loving Trunk Club

Hello, beautiful spring in Austin! We are officially enjoying full-on springtime, which means a little cooler in the morning and warm, sunny skies by the early afternoon. Even as someone who shops constantly (hey, it’s my job! 😉 ), I can definitely get stressed out when figuring out how to transition my wardrobe from season to season. I don’t want to overspend on trendy pieces, but I also want items that are fashion forward yet practical at the same time. This is where my friends over at
Trunk Club come to the rescue!

The Perfect White Blouse

livvyland-blog-olivia-watson-austin-texas-fashion-style-blogger-sezane-white-eyelet-blouse-kick-flare-jeans-simple-spring-outfit-11livvyland-blog-olivia-watson-austin-texas-fashion-style-blogger-sezane-white-eyelet-blouse-kick-flare-jeans-simple-spring-outfit-5Ohh the possibilities when it comes to the perfect white blouse. Dress it up, dress it down, wear it to brunch, wear it to the office…without a doubt, it’s a closet must. Though a plain white button down will do the trick, there are so many beautifully detailed additions to a classic white blouse out these days (like eyelet + ruffles) – and I can’t get enough!

Must-Have Wedges

Blake is sound asleep next to me while I write this post from our hotel room in Tokyo. I woke up early for a conference call with a brand I’ll be working with in May (…4am in Tokyo is 3pm in NYC! …yes, it was brutal, ah!) and I couldn’t fall back to sleep after it was over. Thus, I went downstairs to grab some coffee and figured I’d get in a blog post while I’ve got the time (and energy!). During the call, she let me know that it’s 80 degrees in NYC today (yay for no more snow!) and I’m assuming it’s well over that by now in Austin, haha ah…! Which means time to bust out your cutest tank (this one is just $20!!), a great pair of denim and some gorgeous wedges (that are crazy comfy!). Let’s get to it… 😉

Everyday Breakfast Tacos

By Jessica Lee

Here in Austin, breakfast tacos are king. You can find them everywhere from coffee shops to gas station convenience stores to my office break room where a kind lady comes in and sells her homemade version every morning (how great is that?!).

Sézane Spring

Okay okay, I’ll cut it with the french buuut I am feeling oh so inspired by all the beautiful new spring pieces over at my favorite french brand, Sézane! My bff Elissa (flight attendant) just had an overnight in Paris a few days ago and she sent me a video of a giant line pouring out of the Sezane store and into the street, down an entire block! Now, if that doesn’t tell us something about how special this brand is…then all you have to do is take a look at their website (or Instagram…swoon!), to be completely captivated by the whimsical, feminine styles they carry. I’m excited to share a few of their new pieces that have been adding a major pop to my wardrobe lately…

We’re Headed To…

That feeling when you haven’t slept all week (hello, delirium! Hello, dark circles!), you have crossed nearly every item off your to-do list (and had zero breakdowns…I am so proud of myself, ha!) and you’re bursting with excitement because you and your favorite travel partner are about to spend a full on two weeks exploring and soaking up another culture (and the #1 place on Blake’s bucket list)… Well! That feeling is currently welling up inside me because Blake and I are about to spend the next 14 days in…

Effortless Essentials

If you were to open up the closet in my office, you’ll see lots of pretty blouses to wear out and about (…that mostly get worn when I am taking photos in them, ha!), but if you were to open up the closet in our bedroom, you’d find a row of cotton v-necks in every neutral color imaginable (…I am 100% being serious!). The thing is, I am a jeans and tee girl through and through (…as if y’all didn’t already catch that about me…!) – and as much as I love getting dolled up, when it comes to staple pieces I wear time and time again, a tie-front tee and adorable pair of white cutoffs are no brainers because I know I’ll be wearing these all. the. time. (Ps. I styled this tee a different way on my IG feed, you can check it out here. See what I mean? One tee, so many ways).
