Dainty Ruffle Wrap Dress

Ohh my heart…doing some major swooning over this dress! Ruffles, wrap-waist, itty bitty stripes…it is absolutely perfect! I have been extra drawn to feminine, girly dresses and tops lately (more fun frocks headed to LL this week). This one has such a classic feel to it – something to keep in your closet for years to come! From work to play, to summer wedding guest attire, this dress is showstopper!

5 Favorites: Denim Shorts

Happy Wednesday, friends! As we inch closer to summer, the heat in Austin is calling for cutoff shorts and breezy tops! I am such a fan of denim shorts of all kinds: high rise, low rise, tight, loose…you name it, I probably have it sitting in my dresser drawer or in my shopping cart. Whether you’re meeting friends for coffee or running errands on the weekend, you can’t go wrong investing in a gorgeous pair of denim shorts!

Gingham Top & Round Straw Handbag

Ohh the dreaded Tuesday following a holiday weekend…I am absolutely feeling that dark cloud looming over my head! I am on my second coffee of the day, been jamming new Miley quite loudly (…perks of a house, no one bangs on the wall for me to shut up haha!) and am desperately trying to shake this wonky feeling that won’t seem to go away. I’ve got an inbox filled with to-do’s (…maybe if I don’t open them, they’ll just disappear…isn’t that how it works? 😉 ), a sink filled with dishes and lots of content to prep (hooray June posts – I’ve got some fun stuff in the works! …Just need to get to it, ah!). Alas, I reach for my laptop, close out my emails and get started in writing this blog post…my therapy!

I should also mention that this precious top is on major sale, just $35! I figured spreading good news may provide some joy to myself, as well. 🙂

White Boho Sundress

Happy Memorial Day Weekend, friends! I hope you have some plans to get outside and soak up an extra day of relaxation! Blake and I have some friends headed to town, so we’re excited to play “tourist” in our own city and get outside to explore Austin. We are inching thaaat much closer to summer…so it’s time to reach for free-flowing dresses in the prettiest crisp white color. Oh, bonus points if your dress exudes ‘happy vibes’…which I am definitely thinking this number does! (…Just wait until you see the pom-pom details on this cutie!).

5 Favorites: White Leather Sneakers

livvyland-blog-olivia-watson-flat-lay-outfit-striped-tie-front-top-white-greats-royal-sneakers-one-teaspoon-bandit-shortsI received so many questions about my white leather sneakers while in Scandinavia, so today I’m sharing my exact shoes and four other awesome white sneaker options for y’all!

You can’t go wrong investing in a cute pair of neutral sneaks, they go with EVERYTHING! Trust me, I didn’t think I’d end up wearing mine as often as I did on our trip, but I am so glad I brought them along because they quickly became a daily go-to for me. I LOVE that they’re leather, too – it adds a fashion forward update to a standard pair of white sneakers, definitely recommend a pair!
