Must-Have Summer Bucket Bag

A breezy top, high rise button-up jeans and a fabulous handbag…I’m ready to take on the day in this outfit! (Look good, feel good, right?). I’m a firm believer in the power of a new handbag – and especially one that’s unique yet timeless, and bonus points if it can effortlessly mix into my daily wardrobe. The Brahmin Southcoast Collection never ceases to impress me, and their latest line has me swooning. Soft leather in relaxed silhouettes with bohemian details (those tassels!)…it’s a tough call to choose just one, but the Isabelle Drawstring Bag caught my eye.

5 Favorites: Button Up Shirts

livvyland-blog-best-button-up-shirts-gingham-madewell-circle-wicker-straw-bag-1Sooo…clearly I’ve got a thing for button up shirts. They’re timeless, classy, easy to style (front-tuck into jeans or full-tuck into shorts with a tan leather belt) and always have that effortlessly pulled together feel. That’s a win in my book – and a closet staple that you can wear for years to come!

livvyland-blog-olivia-watson-black-short-overalls-abercrombie-everlane-black-pointed-toe-flats-summer-outfit-jos-coffee-second-street-austin-texas-fashion-blogger-1Aaaand my love for overalls (…er, “shortalls”..) continues with this stinkin’ adorable black pair. I didn’t know I could love a 90s trend so much in 2017, but seriously, I never want to take these off. When this pair arrived in the mail last week, I am not even joking when I tell you that I wore these overalls three days in a row. They are SO. COMFY. You can rock them with flats, sneakers, sandals…you name it, they look awesome and just bring out the happy vibes! My sister and I did a little shopping on Second Street last week and stopped into Jo’s Coffeehouse for a yummy Iced Turbo on the patio (hazelnut, iced coffee, sweetened milk…mouth watering as I type this haha), I brought my camera along and she rocked at snapping some outfit pics while we cooled off!

Hey gals! How’s your week going? It’s been a busy one in our abode (y’all…this place if finally coming together, ha! Phewwww…furnishing a house is no joke!) and I am very much looking forward to the weekend. We’ve got zero plans and that is exactly how I hope it stays haha.

5 Favorites: Tan Leather Handbags

As y’all know, tan (or cognac) is my go-to color when it comes to handbags. It’s such a warm, inviting color that feels casual yet put together and chic. From cross-body bags, to totes and clutches, I am pretty sure 90% of my handbag shelf is this color, ha! But hey, when you find the thing that feels really “you” when it comes to getting dressed each day, embrace it and spread the goodness around! Thus, today I’m sharing 5 favorite tan leather handbags that I am completely enamored with! (…And one bonus that I am saving all my pennies for, too, ha!).
