My Happy Place


Fresh coffee in hand, Watson to my right, a good book on the agenda and the comfiest dress you can imagine – this, my friends, is my happy place. Insert Blake onto the sofa next to me (…he’s behind the camera) and I’ve got myself an absolutely perfect morning (…or interchange coffee for wine and there’s one heck of an evening!). As I get older and we settle into our home, I find that I LOVE to live in this space we’ve created. I used to be the kind of person who got restless and would never consider myself a homebody…but as time has gone on, this is where I am happiest. It’s funny how much things can change within even just a year. A house, a dog, a new patio – we’re growing our roots here and it feels so good. Lots of love in this place!

Be More Human – Join The Movement

livvyland-blog-olivia-watson-workout-outfit-be-more-human-reebok-joggers-6livvyland-blog-olivia-watson-workout-outfit-be-more-human-reebok-joggers-7
If there’s one thing that makes me stronger and mentally prepares me to tackle any challenge ahead, it’s routinely doing something active. Makeup off, hair pulled back, sneakers tied and ready to break a sweat! Whether I’m jamming to music that gets me pumped up, listening to a podcast that resonates and gives me a boost of positive energy, or simply brainstorming goals and feeling extra motivated work towards them (anyone else love that “me time” thinking when exercising?)…there’s just something about getting physical that brings out our best self. Feeling good starts from the inside out, and I’m loving Reebok’s new Be More Human movement to support that sentiment. Once laced up, where will these shoes take me? Both mentally and physically – the possibilities are endless when we stay inspired!

Summer Staple: White Denim

How’s your week going? I know it’s been on the quieter side around here…lots of personal stuff taking place in our world lately, and I’ve needed to step away from social media + blogging and tend that for the last couple of weeks. I appreciate your patience with me – and as always, thanks for stopping by!! I feel like things are slowly but surely calming down on my end, which means more content headed your way – home decor, that Japan travel diary (…I promise I haven’t forgotten about that one, ha!), more Nordies sale posts and of course, some adorable summer outfits…like this one! If there’s one item that just screams summer but is also extremely flattering with a tan (…and tan accessories), it’s 100% a fab pair of white denim…

Relaxed High Rise Jeans (Under $100!)

I hope you’ve had a great week – can’t believe how quickly this one flew by…but definitely not complaining that we get to sleep in tomorrow. 😉 It’s a rarity you’ll find me in a dress on any given day (love them but for some reason I can’t stop/won’t stop with my crazy denim obsession), and even in the summer, jeans are one of my go-to outfit staples. Madewell is a brand I continue to spend aaaall my pennies on (…but hey, building a wardrobe you LOVE is totally worth it, right? Oh ya know, always rationalizing my shopping habits over here….), and their denim selection is one of my very favorites. When I saw this particular pair (called the “Perfect Summer Jeans“) hit the websites of numerous retailers, I immediately snatched up a pair. High rise, flattering on the backside (…no pancake butt with these!) and overall just such a great fit – can’t recommend them enough!

TEE. It’s the softest thing and the colors + stripes are so fun and retro. Kinda has a 70s vibe to it and I am all about it! Aaand the best part? It’s just $24 (yaaas!). Y’all know I love me a good coffeehouse, and Tom’s Coffee Roasters (yep, owned by Tom’s shoes) is always a solid go-to for a yummy latte and minimal people around so I don’t have to feel completely ridiculous while I snap some quick outfit photos… 😉 (Ohh the weird life of a blogger! haha).

Ohh that perfect yellow color…how stinkin’ cute is this for summer?! I love the updated take on a classic romper – that knot-front is adorable and the ruffle trim adds such a flirty vibe. I don’t feature “occasion” looks that often, but when I spotted this romper I knew it would be such a fun look for anything from a date night to a bright and airy wedding guest outfit. Spilling all the details below!

Urban Outfitters AfterPay

I come bearing some reaaaally great news: Urban Outfitters recently added AfterPay to their site, which means you pay only 25% up front, then pay the rest in four easy equal payments. OMG game changer because online shopping can add up (trust me…I know this all too well haha) and let’s just say when you really want that pair of Jeffrey Campbell flats (I’m talkin’ about these) but the price tag seems a little scary upfront aaand you’ve got a shopping cart filled with 10 other items (hi, that’s me!), AfterPay is the way to go.
