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!

My Favorite Body-Con Dress

livvyland-blog-olivia-watson-austin-texas-fashion-style-blogger-bohemian-maternity-dress-cute-pregnancy-outfit-idea-5livvyland-blog-olivia-watson-austin-texas-fashion-style-blogger-bohemian-maternity-dress-cute-pregnancy-outfit-idea-3Oh ya know, just strutting in the middle of a parking lot to show y’all an outfit…typical day in the life over here! 😉 Since becoming pregnant, I feel like I have really expanded my blue jean horizons and even stepped out of my style comfort zone…insert: A DRESS. I don’t really know why, but over time I basically just stopped wearing dresses…even though they’re comfortable and make me feel great! I think I’d forgotten just how nice it is not to wear pants…ha! Anyhoo…this body-con dress is non-maternity and I’ve scooped it up in three colors already. It’s flattering, extremely comfy and something you can wear before, during and after pregnancy (…and lemme tell ya, those pieces are hard to come by and become wardrobe life savers!!).

Greetings from Austin! After all the rainy insanity we’ve experienced lately, we were lucky enough to get a gorgeous day with bursts of sunshine…and I could not be happier!! I’ve been cooped up inside for too long now, so it felt wonderful to enjoy some fresh air (it was a crisp, magical 65 degrees) and get out and adventure around my very favorite part of town, South Congress Avenue, while wearing a couple of new favorites from the always incredible Patricia Nash Designs (those boots…that backpack…swoon!). Sharing a mini photo diary, plus outfit details (of course!).

Hey there, ladies! How’s your Monday going? I woke up super motivated to knock things off my weekly to-do list, and with a freshly made latte in hand and the pups calmly chewing on their bones, I’m feelin’ great! I have had this post in waiting for a few weeks now and am sooo happy to be able to share it with y’all! For one, overalls (obvi! 😉 ). And two, these extremely gorgeous (and very affordable, just $27) wrap bracelets are stinkin’ ADORABLE and such a great holiday gift idea, too. Let’s get to it!

Black & White Athleisure

Dressing my bump has been such a fun challenge…especially as this little guy just keeps growing! I am officially 6 months pregnant (omg where did the time go?!) and the one thing I will not waiver on is comfort. Hence the sneakers…and the leggings…and the long tank top! 😉 Athleisure is always in style…and lucky for me, I found a few key pieces on eBay that I am excited to put into my fall wardrobe rotation!

Rainy Day Hike

I’m lucky to live somewhere with both a big city and hill country vibe – and to be able to trade the hustle and bustle for trees and cliff-sides within minutes. In the midst of the crazy rainy weather we’ve been getting lately (hope you’re all staying safe & dry!) my sister and I were dying to get outside and enjoy some fresh air! The rain subsided for a few hours while we hiked around Mount Bonnell, then started pouring on us just after we were headed back down. Those few hours of peace and quiet soaking in that view was therapeutic for us…we’ve all been cooped up for weeks now!

Loving The New Adidas Sneakers


Hey gals, how was your weekend? I spent mine outdoors and it was LOVELY! If you’ve been reading my blog entries lately, you’ll have likely seen this one chatting about 9 things I didn’t expect when it came to pregnancy…and my lack of exercise motivation was definitely something I didn’t see coming, especially into the second trimester! I’ve felt like dead weight for the majority of my pregnancy and it wasn’t until last week that I really forced myself to get over the “tired” hurdle, pop in my headphones and listen to a Freakonomics podcast (my favorite), and start MOVING. My goal is nothing rigorous, but rather to keep my heart rate up and go on a 40 minute walk, twice a day. Breathe in the fresh air, leave my to-do list (and the dogs haha) behind, and get in some quality “me time.” Truth be told, my quickest pace is an 18-minute mile (…god bless haha, ah!). I’m definitely waddling along, but I am out there and feeling so proud of myself!! I’ve walked four to five miles per day for the last five days…y’all…that’s BIG in my world right now haha!

Cute & Affordable Maternity Denim

Aaand just like that, I’ve made the transition into maternity clothing! I’m still wearing a lot of non-maternity tops (as you’ve likely noticed on my IG), but when it comes to jeans and overalls, I need that maternity stretch and comfort, especially now that I’m well into my second trimester. Not going to lie, at the moment nothing makes me happier than putting on an outfit that makes me feel reaaaally good (the struggle is real when you’re preggo) – and flattering maternity clothing (especially these overalls!) are making me smile real big and feel a lot more like myself lately!

Snap-Up Fleece Pullover

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!
