Y’all know I’m generally a mules and loafers kinda girl, but after scooping up these GORGEOUS taupe suede sneakers, it’s safe to say I’ve been converted to a sneaker person. (…Is that a thing? Going to make a it a thing haha)…

Snap-Up Fleece Pullover

livvyland-blog-olivia-watson-austin-texas-fashion-style-lifestyle-blog-kirkwall-orkney-islands-scotland-abercrombie-pullover-outfit-3livvyland-blog-olivia-watson-austin-texas-fashion-style-lifestyle-blog-kirkwall-orkney-islands-scotland-abercrombie-pullover-outfit-5My foolproof go-to when it comes to dressing comfortably for those cool, crisp days: simple layers. Striped tee, a snap-up pullover, classic skinny jeans and ankle booties. It’s an outfit that I feel really good in – it’s casual yet put together and the color + texture combination is just so perfect together. Cozy fleece, a hint of stripes, a pop of red and my forever favorite cognac accessories…all the ‘yes’ to this outfit!

But also kind of serious…like…what?! This week Blake and I had the pleasure of visiting the Blarney Castle in Ireland for the second the time within a year (which is something we certainly thought we’d never get to do!) – and it also made for a perfect excuse to soak up the crisp 60 degree weather and layer up with one of my favorite pullovers! Y’all know I am obsessed (is that too weak a word to describe my affinity for Patagonia?) with Patagonia and Backcountry…and today I’m excited to share an outfit that’s extra warm and cozy…AND a 15% off site-wide at Backcountry code for LL readers!!

Feelin’ Cozy

livvyland-blog-olivia-watson-austin-texas-lifestyle-blogger-jockey-loungewear-3
livvyland-blog-olivia-watson-austin-texas-lifestyle-blogger-jockey-loungewear-5Hey there! How was your weekend? We took ours nice and slowwww…and it was SO WONDERFUL. Worthy of all caps because I’ve been in hustle mode leading up to our trip and I finally carved out some time to r-e-l-a-x and it was fabulous. I forget how much I enjoy simply lounging around the house without a to-do list floating through my brain. Now that’s livin’, I tell ya! Saturday I had planned to hit the mall and do some last minute shopping for our cruise, but after I got ready to venture out for the day, I made it to my car and then realized I needed some “me time” more than I thought I did…my body and mind were telling me nix to shopping list, grab a book and go lay down! I turned back around, swapped my denim cutoffs for some ultra soft joggers (*insert immediate sigh of relief here*) and suddenly the day went from “meh” (albeit productive) to pure, restful bliss (#worthit).

Sporty Staples

livvyland-blog-olivia-watson-russell-athletic-shirt-urban-outfitters-6livvyland-blog-olivia-watson-russell-athletic-shirt-urban-outfitters-2 Two things I reaaaaally love: a midday coffee break and a cute, comfortable outfit. Combine the two and it’s a recipe that can truly turn my day around. Yesterday morning was quite hectic as I have been trying to prepare for our two week trip abroad (we leave Monday), and when my sister asked to grab a cup, pastry and relax for a bit at one of our favorite spots in town (Tom’s Coffee never fails us!), I immediately jumped at the invitation. By 1pm I realized I had yet to get out of my loungewear and was fading quickly. Caffeine (well…”half caff” given Baby P 😉 ), quality sister time, and a colorful tee + denim shorts combo to the rescue!

The Skincare That Makes Me Glow

livvyland-blog-olivia-watson-austin-texas-lifestyle-beauty-blogger-colleen-rothschild-sheer-renewal-cream-1livvyland-blog-olivia-watson-austin-texas-lifestyle-beauty-blogger-colleen-rothschild-skincare-reviewDo you ever get home from a long day at work and want nothing more than a mini spa sesh in your own bathroom? My sister and I have been talking about this feeling more and more…the older we get, the more we appreciate a solid skincare routine that both works and feels like pampering – I mean, is that too much to ask? There’s not a whole lot a hot bath, face mask and glass of wine can’t fix…at least in the short term. 😉 Apparently the fine folks over at Colleen Rothschild heard our woes because their line of best sellers (…and now I totally know why they’re listed under that tab!!) are actual magic-luxurious-skincare-yummy-goodness. (Turning that into a thing, btw…). My old skincare routine was just that – a routine…and it’s been SO…dare I say, fun?…and refreshing to discover five special products that truly make me feel amazing. My skin is glowing and hydrated, my cabinet is no longer filled with dozens of random skincare samples and that incredible pampering thing? Yep, it’s here to stay!

Sharing my step-by-step skincare must-haves with y’all – trust me, five simple steps goes a long way!! PS. All of these are currently 25% off! Look for the discount code at the end of this post.

Comfy Festival Outfit Idea

livvyland-blog-olivia-watson-austin-texas-fashion-lifestyle-blog-what-to-wear-acl-festival-1livvyland-blog-olivia-watson-austin-texas-fashion-lifestyle-blog-what-to-wear-acl-festival-8Anyone else counting down the days to Austin City Limits music festival this year? While I love the bands, scene and food trucks (obviously…haha), half the fun is figuring out what to wear. ACL is a lot more relaxed than Coachella – the two aren’t really comparable in the style category… it’s doubtful you’ll see anyone with glittery tattoos on their faces or designer handbags around their waists. Which is all the more reason why I love this wonderful weekend in Austin… you can still have fun dressing in your festival best, but the outfits are also 100% wearable off the festival grounds… which is totally a win/win in my book!

Weekend Hike: 360 Overlook

livvyland-blog-olivia-watson-backcountry-free-people-take-me-tee-fjallraven-kanken-mini-green-backpack-360-overlook-bridge-5livvyland-blog-olivia-watson-backcountry-free-people-take-me-tee-fjallraven-kanken-mini-green-backpack-360-overlook-bridge-4Early bird gets the worm…and the best view without the crowd! Blake and I both had intense work weeks, so the first thing on our minds for the weekend was to get outside and soak in some fresh air. We’ve been glued to our computers lately, so it was a very welcome break to swap my jeans for ultra comfy leggings + a breezy oversized tee and enjoy time at the 360 Overlook, a hike that overlooks the beloved 360 Bridge and Lake Austin here in town. Now that this city has an ever-expanding population, we’ve realized to soak up our old stomping grounds without a crowd of people, you’ve got to get up early…which also kind of kicks us into high gear to seize the day just as the sun comes out! One of my favorite things about Austin is how outdoor friendly the city is…there’s always a nature-filled place you can go to clear your head and reset – and this weekend is all about hitting that reset button!
