Barcelona & Sitges, Spain

livvyland-blog-olivia-watson-mediterranean-princess-cruise-barcelona-le-sitges-spain-6Hello there, gals! Long time coming, buuut I am so excited to finally share a little photo diary from our stop in Sitges & Barcelona, Spain during our Mediterranean getaway in June! For those new to LL, Blake and I had the absolute pleasure (…more like vacation miracle of a lifetime…it was magical!) of going on a Princess Cruise through the Mediterranean – starting in Spain then venturing to France and Italy (if you haven’t seen my wrap-up posts for those stops, you muuuust! I swoon and simultaneously get depressed every time I go back and read through them…ha! Depressed because it’s over, obviously..! ūüėČ ).

Today I’m sharing a little glimpse at our time in Barcelona (towards the end of this post) and the little seaside town southwest of Barcelona called Sitges, where we stayed the night before boarding the ship. We flew from Austin to Barcelona and were able to explore for two days (one night) before hopping on the boat to officially start our cruise. What a treat it was to have a couple of days to see these beautiful places¬†– we were in heaven!

Happy weekend, ladies! I am SO EXCITED to finally share the Italy portion of our Princess Cruise through the Mediterranean coast! These pictures never fail to make me swoon (…and also never fail to make me thoroughly depressed because I miss this trip so much, ha!). We spent our first day in Italy visiting Portofino¬†(which as you can see is the definition of magical) and the second day we ventured to Cinque Terre…and did not quite encounter the stunning cliffside views I had imagined because we got caught in a caa-razy torrential downpour that ended up being a TON of fun with an incredible group of people…but more on that further into this post! ūüėČ

Ps. If you’re on the hunt for a¬†vacation¬†that exceeds all of your wildest Pinterest level expectations, you muuuust go to Italy! It truly was heaven on earth!

Travel Diary: Aix-en-Provence, France

Processed with VSCO with a6 presetHappy weekend, ladies! Oohh I am SO excited to finally share this travel diary post with you! One of my absolute favorite stops we made on our Princess Cruise through the Mediterranean Coast was to southern France and the city of Aix-en-Provence, in particular. As y’all know, I’m a big fan of french culture (…and I even got to brush up on my french speaking here!) so visiting this precious, beautiful city made my heart very happy! Not to mention, getting to explore this city with Blake by my side…it was romantic and so much fun. Between strolling¬†through cobblestone streets holding hands (hey, y’all know me…I’m a total sucker for those rom-com-real-life-moments) and eating and drinking our way through the city (the macaroons were out of this world!), we had a magical day in Aix-en-Provence! Read on to hear more about this lovely city and see more photos from our time there…

Travel Diary: Cartagena, Spain

livvyland-blog-olivia-watson-fashion-blogger-austin-texas-cartagena-spain-princess-cruises-mediterranean-madewell-off-shoulder-top-17Hello sweet friends! Once again, please forgive my delay in posting on my blog this week – I just got back from my bachelorette trip last night (we went to Costa Rica, it was magical!!), so after 10 loads of laundry and numerous espresso shots today (ah!) I am so happy to sit down and share this much anticipated post with y’all! Though we stopped at quite a few places on our Princess Cruise through the Mediterranean coast (so crazy that I just hopped off the ship roughly a week ago!), I thought I’d start with Cartagena, Spain – the cutest little coastal town that had such an old, vintage charm about it. (Oh, and very good beer, too! ūüėČ )…

Mediterranean Cruise: What I Wore & What To Pack

livvyland-blog-mediterranean-cruise-what-to-wear-pack-instagram-roundupAs y’all know if you follow me on Instagram, Blake & I just¬†got back from a 10 day Mediterranean getaway with Princess Cruises to Spain, France and Italy! And while I have been living in a wanderlust depression ever since we returned back home (…y’all, it was truly magical!), going through these photos makes my heart so happy because each and every day was absolutely¬†incredible. Every setting was stunning, inspiring and super romantic¬†– if you ever have the chance to tour the Mediterranean, 100% jump on it and prepare for the most amazing and beautiful experience! I have a ton of other photos and blog posts about our trip to come, but first I wanted to make sure you had the chance to shop everything I wore throughout our vacation! I did some serious shopping damage before our trip (hey, it’s not everyday I get to have Italy as a photo backdrop ūüėČ ) and I am so obsessed with all¬†of these looks and excited to tell you more about each¬†outfit..
