Closet Staple: Utility Jacket

Any other utility jacket fans out there? It is truly the jacket I wear the most every fall…that gorgeous army green color, the casual, put together shape, and I love that it’s light weight yet warm enough to make for the perfect outer layer! I am a serious sucker for fleet jackets and this one in particular is hands down my go-to. Sharing 3 reasons why you should add one to your fall wardrobe…so let’s get to it! ūüėČ

Cozy Mornings At Home

Happy Sunday, ladies! How is your weekend going? If you follow me on Instagram, you may know that yesterday was a BIG day for me and Blake…we got a dog!!! His name is Watson and he’s an 8 week old Aussie Labradoodle…and we are so in love! We have been patiently waiting for him to be ours (…that’s the “big news” I’ve hinted at in my recent posts), and we were finally able to bring him home and join our little family. (Psst…here’s a glimpse at the sweet angel in case you want to see!).

In other news, cozy mornings at home have always been big in our abode…and now with a pup in tow, enjoying time at home is even more important! While most of the time I am admittedly wearing a mismatching oversized tee and sweatpants that I have likely had since high school (attachment issues, ya know? haha), there are certain days and nights where I want to feel extra beautiful and wear a pretty chemise (omg this thing is the softest piece of lingerie EVER!) and layer up with a cozy cardigan (one of my favorites over the past couple of years) and some ultra plush slippers. Today I’m excited to partner with Nordstrom and¬†share the details on this perfect sexy yet classy and oh so cozy look!

Saltwater Duck Boots

Cooler temps, fall foliage, cozy layers and the perfect pair of waterproof boots! I don’t know about y’all, but I am welcoming both November and autumn with open arms and some new shoes… ūüėČ As I map¬†out my¬†fall travels (…Iceland and NYC next week, eek!), I have been on the hunt for the perfect pair of wet weather boots to keep me warm, dry and allow for plenty of adventure & exploring. Though Austin climate is fairly¬†tame, having a pair of rain boots handy is always a good idea – I’m excited to partner with Sperry and style a pair of their¬†seriously AWESOME¬†Saltwater Duck Boots!

PS. Sperry & I are hosting a giveaway on my IG account (right now!!) where you AND a friend could WIN a pair of these adorable boots! Follow me on Instagram and follow the simple directions in this post to enter! (Official rules of entry here). Good luck!

How To Dress Up A Chunky Sweater

livvyland-blog-olivia-watson-austin-texas-fashion-blogger-mauve-blush-sweater-white-denim-peep-toe-booties-fall-outfit-idea-8Hey ladies – happy Halloween! I hope your week is off to a great start and you’re indulging in aaaall the candy today. ūüėČ Blake and I are excited to go trick or treating with my niece and nephew for a bit, then head home and pass out candy in our neighborhood…it’s our first Halloween in the new house…kind of a milestone, right? Ready to meet some more neighbors and see all the cute kiddos in their costumes – big day ahead!

As y’all know, sweaters are probably my favorite wardrobe piece when it comes to fall and winter wardrobes. They’re ultra cozy, flattering¬†and can be dressed up or down. Normally when you think of a chunky sweater, it’s paired with jeans and cool sneakers or flats…so today I’m excited to style the cuuuutest sweater in a more dressed up way!

Sweater Weather

livvyland-blog-olivia-watson-mauve-mock-neck-sweater-levis-501-jeans-urban-outfitters-fortress-of-inca-tan-leather-slides-5Hey friends! How’s your week going? Things have been busy but good in my world – my best friend Elissa is still in town and so we’ve been spending tons of time together (yay!) and yesterday took my niece and nephew on a little play date to an inflatable jump gym. The place is HUGE and we were literally the only people there…soooo of course Liss and I kicked off our shoes and jumped around (and sweat a LOT…and realized we are old and our bodies aren’t as agile as they once were haha) for over an hour. It was sooo fun! I miss being a kid…so carefree and easy. Adulthood is weird, ha! Anyhoo, after stuffing our faces with concession stand treats (ice cream, Cheetos, candy, gatorade), Elissa and I were pretty much zombies while the kiddos danced to¬†the Trolls¬†soundtrack on the ride home. Needless to say, it was a great day – always so thankful for quality time with my family and friends…social media is cool and all, but it’s the real life stuff that matters!

Aaand now for my outfit details… ūüėČ I am forever failing at a solid transition from life to “okay let’s talk about this sweater”…ya know? Ha, doing my best over here! (But seriously…this sweater is SO GOOD!).

First things first when it comes to a peaceful weekend: dress the part! Casual graphic tee (loving art print tees lately), go-to distressed denim and the coziest cardigan. Hand me a good book and a big ‘ol cup of coffee and I’ll be one happy lady…

The Perfect Fall Floral Dress (40% Off!)

Happy Saturday, friends! Hope your weekend is off to a great start. ūüôā Blake and I are enjoying ACL festival this weekend (Jay-Z killed it last night!) and excited to take on day two today. I am a granny so am only going Friday/Saturday…can’t hang like I used to…ha! This year has been particularly special for a couple of¬†reasons…reason one is that I’m partnering with¬†TicketCity¬†for the fest and living the VIP life (first time for me…free food + drinks/swag bags, beauty stations (how cool is that?!) and lots of shade and air conditioning…no complaints here! ūüėČ Reason two is that I’ve realized¬†I’m not quite the festival gal I thought I was and am now hanging with the parents that bring lawn chairs and sit waaaay in the back haha. It was 8pm last night and I legit thought it was 11pm…who have I become?! I watched all the college kids dancing their butts off to DJ sets (glitter in their hair, on their faces) and I slowly but surely came to terms with¬†the fact that I am getting older…and I fully embrace it. I got home completely sober and watched an episode of RHONY (current guilty pleasure). ACL by day, sweatpants and fully hydrated + catching up on my shows by night…life is good at age 27!

Cozy In Cashmere

livvyland-blog-olivia-watson-free-people-vegan-leather-mini-skirt-cashmere-tan-sweater-sezane-studded-bucket-bag-9A cold front hit Austin this morning and ohhh my goodness I could not be more grateful! I went for a long walk this morning to clear my head and soak up the gorgeous, crisp weather and felt revived as soon as I got home. Nothing like a true season change to bring some positive juju and make me feel inspired and motivated. I hope y’all are having a great start to your week, too!

One of my favorite color combinations at the moment is black and tan. I know I know, 2016 Olivia would have been terrified to wear so much black (always been my constant struggle!), but 2017 Olivia has finally gotten into a rhythm of incorporating more black pieces…and I must admit, I am LOVING it! Chic and timeless, you can’t go wrong investing in black staples to build your wardrobe. Aaand speaking of fall staples: this ultra cozy cashmere sweater (under $100!).
