The Perfect Everyday Tote

If there’s one brand that continues to produce beautiful products season after season (…and that happen to be exactly my style!), it’s Brahmin. (See that gorgeous tote? Mhmm, that’s it!). Their new Southcoast collection is filled with soft leathers, classic silhouettes and functional purpose…I traveled to Barcelona with this same tote a few weeks back and I received SO many compliments! It’s definitely a great bag for both work and play (fits a laptop, camera…all my essentials!) – I can’t tell you how many people stopped me at the airport to ask for tote details, ha. Needless to say, this beauty will definitely be sticking around my handbag closet!

Floral Wrap Maxi Skirt

If there was ever a skirt that screams summer date night (…or rather, “hey Blake! Let’s go get margaritas!”), it’s 100% this beauty of a wrap skirt! From the flirty floral print, to the sexy slit and the ultra flattering wrap-waistline, this skirt is a total knockout addition to your wardrobe.

From grabbing cocktails by the pool and trying out the delicious specialty restaurants, to watching movies under the stars on the top deck or penciling in gelato dates…our ship had plenty of entertainment and r&r options!

Nordstrom Anniversary Sale Public Access!

It’s HERE! The public portion of the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale has finally arrived and oooh girls are the deals still ahh-mazing! (Public Access = you don’t have to have a Nordstrom card to shop the sale). Given that the “early access” week had items selling out quick, I scoured the rest of the sale to bring you THE best of the best. (Well…in my opinion, that is! 😉 ). Time to stock up on gorgeous jackets (moto, drape-front, leather – you name it, it’s in the sale and SO CUTE + affordable!), cozy sweaters, loungewear, jeans, shoes and of course, handbags. I’m pretty sure I spent about half my bank account on this sale (oops! Oh well, I’ll be so proud of myself come fall, ha!), sooo all I have to say is – enjoy, and may the Nordies forces be with you!

Cropped High Rise Denim in NYC

livvyland-blog-olivia-watson-urban-outfitters-open-back-bow-tie-top-mom-jeans-brooklyn-bridge-5Open back crop-top, flared + high-rise denim, that view…thinking this is the recipe for a fabulous day in NYC! I never thought I could pull off a pair of denim like these, but I am SO in love with the fit and am excited to rock these from summer and into fall! (Just swap the sandals for a pair of slip-on mules or slides and pair with a slouchy sweater – complete with a front tuck and you’re cozy-chic + cool-weather-ready!).

The Perfect Summer Handbag

 If there’s one accessory that I adore for summer, it’s a wicker handbag. There’s something about the texture and overall feel of a wicker bag that has such a classic, vintage vibe about it. The word “darling” is a pretty spot-on description for it if you ask me! Often when I am adding pieces to my wardrobe I’ll think about what items my grandmother would have loved (her taste was impeccable!), and this round rattan bag certainly would have her approval. (Oh, and did I mention it’s super affordable? Win/win!).

My Go-To Travel Outfit (And Some News!)

Hey gals, hope you had a wonderful weekend! I’ve been in hustle mode as we prep for another big trip…aaand surprise, we leave today! Headed on a two-week vacay with Blake’s fam (aunts, uncles, cousins…the works) through the UK, Ireland and Scotland…I am SO excited!!

As I’ve been traveling more frequently this year, I’ve gotten pretty darn good (…if I do say so myself!) at finding looks that are both comfortable for a 9+ hour flight and stylish. Give me joggers, a cozy tank + slip-on sneakers and I’m a happy camper at the airport!

Today is the first day of Early Access (which means only Nordstrom credit/debit card holders have access to all the new products at suuuuper sale prices – trust me, it’s worth getting a card for + super easy to sign up online!!) and I am SO excited to share my favorite picks from the sale!
