Finally necessary! Well then, let’s get to the good stuff, shall we? 😉

ig_sqaure
Happy Monday, friends! I’m SO excited to share that I’ve been chosen as this week’s Guest Editor of the Week over at Brickyard Buffalo! I have been a big fan of this site (and the amazing deals they provide each week) for quite some time, so when they reached out to collaborate, I immediately jumped at the opportunity! For one, their clothing is adorable (I’ll share more outfits from my BB picks on my Instagram this week) and two, I get to feature some of my absolute FAVORITE small business brands with y’all – oh, and you get major discounts all week long, wahoo! 😉

Just in time for the holidays (hey, we’re one day away from November, it’s officially holiday shopping season in my book!), I am so thrilled to showcase a few online shops that will either help make your holiday snail mail a lot easier (…and cuter, obvi! 😉 gotta have fun with those family photo cards!) by way personalized address stamps by Exquisite Squid, or the prettiest trendy blush pink choker necklace by CJK Designs, and lastly, a custom watercolor painted home (trust me, these make for THE sweetest gifts to parents, siblings, grandparents!) by Kimberlee Artworks.

So! Without further ado, I’m giving you a closer look at the vendors that I love dearly (and a few favorite clothing picks on major sale) currently featured in my BB picks of the week! Enjoy!!

Sporty Chic For Fall

livvyland-blog-olivia-watson-sporty-chic-outfit-idea
Happy Friday, ladies! I’m excited to partner with Nordstrom today and share another fabulous outdoors-y outfit option with y’all…and in particular, this gorgeous vest + leggings (trust me, these are a must), sneakers combo!

Given that fall weather is still making its way to Austin (…please hurry up! 😉 ), opting for light layers that you can easily take on and off and re-wear time and time again is a definite do in my book! I’ve never met anyone who isn’t into the “sporty-chic” look (…I mean, who wouldn’t be? It’s cute and SO comfy!), so I knew this would be a fun one to share today! Plus, perfect timing as we mosey on into the weekend…I kind of feel like this is the perfect Saturday outfit, anyone else? 😉

Ps. I made a collage of my go-to activewear favorites and included a few fun accessories to add that fashionable touch. The vest I’m sporting in this post is actually closer in color to the product image (more of a “dusty rose” and less a vibrant pink). Scroll to the end of this post for all my product links!

Nordstrom Anniversary Sale Roundup – Best Of The Sale!

The Nordstrom Anniversary Sale is officially here! Today through July 22nd, only Nordstrom cardholders can shop the pre-sale (…and y’all, you’re going to want to shop early…this sale is AMAZING!). Every year, Nordstrom hosts their Anniversary Sale where they have a killer sale on NEW fall products! I’m talking up to 50% on amazing finds like sweaters, jackets, boots, makeup and a TON more! After the sale, items go back up to full price and stay there… so it’s time to scoop up your fall fashion items + gifts to last throughout the year! (…I love stocking up on candles and accessories to give as gifts, you seriously can’t beat these prices for such pretty and nice pieces!).

**Scroll over the images above and click to shop! 

The sale can be a little overwhelming, so I woke up briiiiight and early to scope out my favorites and the best deals for you to shop!! Ps. I know it’s 100 degrees in Texas at the moment, but think ahead to fall weather and stock up on those perfect layerables and accessories to keep you cute, cozy and warm! Shop more from the sale here!

If you’ve been thinking of splurging on a new pair of OTK boots, a designer handbag or sunglasses, or a leather jacket – I highly recommend investing during this sale! I treated myself to a a new handbag (love this pretty wine color & can’t beat the price!) and a real leather jacket… Blake and I are tentatively thinking of visiting Paris for our honeymoon, so I’ll need a quality jacket while we’re there! …Not to mention I’ve been eying a real leather jacket for nearly a year now…how gorgeous is this one?! Can’t wait for it to arrive in the mail!

One last thing! Items during this sale pretty much go like hot cakes, so I recommend ordering a couple size options if you’re unsure of the fit and then returning the ones that don’t work out. You can return items to Nordstrom at any time, so this way you know you can get the exact pieces you want and not have to wish you’d ordered a different size from the start! (…Can you tell all my online shopping experience is paying off? 😉 Ha!).
