Cropped High Rise Denim in NYC

livvyland-blog-olivia-watson-urban-outfitters-open-back-bow-tie-top-mom-jeans-brooklyn-bridge-5Open back crop-top, flared + high-rise denim, that view…thinking this is the recipe for a fabulous day in NYC! I never thought I could pull off a pair of denim like these, but I am SO in love with the fit and am excited to rock these from summer and into fall! (Just swap the sandals for a pair of slip-on mules or slides and pair with a slouchy sweater – complete with a front tuck and you’re cozy-chic + cool-weather-ready!).

The Perfect Summer Handbag

 If there’s one accessory that I adore for summer, it’s a wicker handbag. There’s something about the texture and overall feel of a wicker bag that has such a classic, vintage vibe about it. The word “darling” is a pretty spot-on description for it if you ask me! Often when I am adding pieces to my wardrobe I’ll think about what items my grandmother would have loved (her taste was impeccable!), and this round rattan bag certainly would have her approval. (Oh, and did I mention it’s super affordable? Win/win!).

My Go-To Travel Outfit (And Some News!)

Hey gals, hope you had a wonderful weekend! I’ve been in hustle mode as we prep for another big trip…aaand surprise, we leave today! Headed on a two-week vacay with Blake’s fam (aunts, uncles, cousins…the works) through the UK, Ireland and Scotland…I am SO excited!!

As I’ve been traveling more frequently this year, I’ve gotten pretty darn good (…if I do say so myself!) at finding looks that are both comfortable for a 9+ hour flight and stylish. Give me joggers, a cozy tank + slip-on sneakers and I’m a happy camper at the airport!

Psst…if you’re headed somewhere sunny, I’ve got ya covered – sharing more darling striped dresses and rompers!

New York City Strolling

livvyland-blog-olivia-watson-nyc-tribeca-mom-jeans-brahmin-tan-charleston-tote-neckerchief-5Sorry for the radio silence on LL this week (…and my Insta feed), I’ve had a bad case of the flu that pretty much kicked my butt! Not going to lie, as awful as I’ve been feeling, I think it’s my body telling me to “cool muhh jets” and literally do a whole lotta  n-o-t-h-i-n-g  for a week straight. So! That’s exactly what I’ve been doing. Movie watching, Netflix and actual chilling (Masters of None is SO GOOD!), going to sleep at 6pm for the past five days straight. Blake has been the best care taker and sweetest husband…I definitely lucked out, he is a true gem!

Switching gears…let’s talk about this look! High rise + cropped flare jeans (omg I am not wearing skinny jeans, it’s a miracle!), the cutest mustard neckerchief and a goooorgeous tote bag in my favorite color…

Poppy Floral Mini Dress

View More: http://brandonhillstories.pass.us/olivia-20There’s something about poppy red that has me swooning these days. It’s such a fun, happy color and it goes great with cognac accessories + shoes (which y’all know is a must for me! 😉 ). This little floral number is certain to be one of those adorable dresses on repeat this summer – my galpal Elissa and I rotated wearing it in Barcelona, ha! Such a breezy material and just makes you feel ultra good and feminine. It’s really the perfect dress from day to night and work to play!

That’s the face of someone who is relaxed, rested, taking it easy and overall…happy. The past 10 days traveling have been overwhelmingly wonderful – I look out at the ocean and am filled with gratitude. To be here in Spain with my closest friends, all of us growing and going through different things yet able to sync up…to take a break from our busy lives and prioritize each others company, it’s something quite special and treasured to me!

Bringing Back The Skort

livvyland-blog-olivia-watson-new-york-city-cobble-hill-brooklyn-modcloth-skort-peter-pan-collar-top-vans-classic-sneakers-summer-outfit-13Yes. You read correctly…I said SKORT! As in, the shorts + skirt hybrid that was the “it” thing to wear in the 90s. At first I was hesitant…but then I tried this cutie on and BAM not only was the fit amazing, it gave me some serious pep in my step! You get the feminine vibe of a skirt, mixed perfectly with the carefree feel of shorts – and that, my friends, is a definite win in my book! Bend, snap, skip, jump…you name it, this outfit lets you (and kind of encourages you) to do it all.

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.
