At seven months pregnant, I’m doing my best to get in those daily steps! I am currently walking a 23 minute mile (…at my fastest, ha!), so leisurely strolling has become my specialty these days. I take daily walks around my neighborhood, but that can get monotonous (…especially given my snail pace!), so on weekends when Blake is free, we’ll go do something active but light enough for me to handle at this stage in my pregnancy. Last weekend it was SO cold out, but it was honestly the best day to hike up to Mount Bonnell because there were no tourists around, ha! We had the view to ourselves and had so much fun walking and talking about how different life will be in just two short months…this time next year Blake will be carrying our little guy in a backpack as we hike this same area! Still surreal (and so exciting!) for us to imagine.

How’s your week going? Can you believe we are just over 10 days away from Christmas?! I don’t know about y’all, but I’ve still got half my list to shop for…ah! Thankfully, this time crunch can be solved by two things: coffee (first and foremost) and online shopping…! Over the weekend, Blake and I tried to brave the mall and man…it was a ZOO. We ended up leaving shortly after, feeling overwhelmed by crowds in every store. So, what to give the gals left on your list (or yourself… 😉 ) that will arrive on your doorstep in time? Shoes!

Holiday Jammies!

livvyland-blog-olivia-watson-austin-texas-fashion-lifestyle-blogger-maternity-christmas-holiday-striped-pajamas-jockey-8livvyland-blog-olivia-watson-austin-texas-fashion-lifestyle-blogger-maternity-christmas-holiday-striped-pajamas-jockey-5If there’s one topic I have become an expert in at this point, it’s most certainly loungewear and pajamas! I was so darn excited to work on this post because a big pregnant belly this year means that next year I’ll have a little mini me dressed to match! I don’t know about you, but when I think of motherhood, matching holiday pajamas is #familygoals in my head, ha. I tried my hardest to wrangle my pups for this shoot, but alas, they preferred to go play outside in the mud…go figure, huh? 😉

If you’re looking for matching PJ’s for you and your friends, husband (…apparently Blake’s not into matching pajamas for photos…THIS year! 😉 ), family or ya know, you just want to feel extra festive and adorable on your own (…hi, that’s me!), then look no further than Jockey for all of your holiday pajama needs!

Holiday Maternity Style

Hello, third trimester! Me oh my things are different around here…ha! Not only has our little guy increased in size (my pregnancy app compared him to the size of an acorn squash this week), but my body has been hard at work and changing daily…not to mention, dressing a big ‘ol bump has been more fun than ever. I used to be able to hide the bump (not intentionally, it just wasn’t quite as prominent in clothing) even just two weeks ago if I wore an oversize tee and leggings…but alas, those days are long gone and thus, I’m ready to display this belly proudly! With the holidays and baby showers fast approaching (I wore this adorable striped dress to my first shower last weekend!) and anything occasion where you’ll want to look and feel pulled together, I’ve been looking to Motherhood Maternity for aaaall my pregnancy outfits! I have been shopping there since I found out I was pregnant, and it’s proven to be my “safe haven” for clothes that make me feel really beautiful, even on days when I don’t necessarily feel my best!

**Fellow mama-to-bes! Motherhood is offering 40% off one full-priced item with code LIVVY40, time to get your holiday outfits ready!! (Valid through Dec. 10th, 2018).

Cozy At Home With Bobeau

I always gravitate towards pieces that make me feel good and that also feel true to my sense of style. Casual, comfortable, versatile…those are all words that describe the vast majority of my wardrobe, and Bobeau’s new collection of ultra soft everyday pieces and loungewear is totally speakin’ my style language! You’ve likely seen me wear this brand if you’ve followed me for a long time – they recently launched a few new collections exclusive to Nordstrom that are SO cute and cozy! Today I’m excited to style a few key pieces I am gushing over (…just wait to you get to the end of this post…that last loungewear set is SO magical I scooped a couple up as gifts for my mom and sister!).

The Best Thermal Top

If you follow me on Instagram, you’ve likely seen me share this top a gazillion times (for instance herehere & here)…and on that note, have you scooped up one for yourself yet?! 😉 In all seriousness, there aren’t a ton of non-maternity tops I’ve found that provide full coverage and have a relaxed enough fit that still feels comfortable – especially six months into pregnancy. This one is from Urban Outfitters and I now own it in four colors…y’all know me, when the top fits, get aaaall the colors!

What To Wear: Fall Hike

livvyland-blog-olivia-watson-austin-texas-fashion-lifestyle-blogger-greenbelt-fall-patagonia-radalie-parka-sorel-ainsley-boots-hiking-outfit-backcountry-6Crisp air, colorful leaves, hot chocolate in hand and the coziest outfit…my idea of the perfect weekend hike! Last Sunday Blake and I snuck away from the pups and enjoyed a hike through our old stomping grounds – the Greenbelt. Before buying a house, our old apartment balcony overlooked the Austin Greenbelt and it was nothing but vast trees as far as the eye could see! While we reminisced about our days living in central Austin, before we had dogs, a house note or a baby on the way (…ohh the days of zero responsibility ha!), we trekked along the beautiful Barton Creek and stopped for some photos as the sun was setting. I know I talk a lot about the importance of getting outdoors on my blog and IG, but I really do believe fresh air and nature can cure a lot things, namely stress and anxiety. When the world seems really heavy, sometimes the best remedy is a peaceful walk amongst the trees, the sound of a nearby stream and the crinkling of leaves beneath your feet.

My Pregnancy Workout Routine

If there’s one thing that makes me feel less bloated and provides an extra boost of energy these days, it’s getting in my daily workout. Though I can’t “go hard” like I used to pre-pregnancy, I have discovered one thing that makes me feel confident and strong…

PS. Hey cutie Watson in this post! As soon as he hears me grab the leash, he is sprinting to get out the door, ha!
