That Go-To Outfit

livvyland-blog-olivia-watson-austin-texas-fashion-blogger-j-crew-striped-turtleneck-outfit-idea-inspiration-4    livvyland-blog-olivia-watson-austin-texas-fashion-blogger-j-crew-striped-turtleneck-outfit-idea-inspiration-8For starters, let’s forgive the humidity hair action going on in this post haha. Austin doesn’t know if it’s hot, cold, extra dry or super humid and my hair is paying the price lately! Second…what’s your “I feel most myself when I’m wearing…” outfit of choice? As you can tell from my blog and IG feed, I am a total jeans girl through and through…and this particular pair of high rise denim is one that gets worn more than the rest! Y’all know my love for stripes runs deep, and I truly can’t tell you how many times I have worn this cozy top in the last few months (…no lie it’s likely an embarrassing amount of times, ha!). Lastly…oh those good ‘ol cognac accessories I can’t seem to shake. I am officially embracing my love for this color everything and will no longer hold myself back from buying aaaaall the (tan) things!

You Know You’re An Adult When…

livvyland-blog-olivia-watson-austin-texas-lifestyle-blogger-dyson-v6-vacuum-ebay-7You know you’ve become a true adult when the day comes that you’re excited…no wait…ecstatic for a vacuum upgrade. When the box for our new Dyson arrived on our doorstep, you’d think I was a wild animal opening up that package…but no, just a regular ‘ol girl who reaaaaally loves her cleaning gadgets! And the absolute best part? This fella was just over $200 (reg. $499)!! I have never seen so many beautiful (…dare I describe a vacuum as such?) Dyson vacuums that are also SO affordable. And where oh where would you find such a deal? Look no further than eBay!

All The Feels

livvyland-blog-olivia-watson-lou-and-grey-best-loungewear-cozy-joggers-stripe-sweatshirt-coffee-bed-bedroom-9What do you do to relax at home? As Blake and I are getting the hang of being dog parents, we’ve both found that lounging in bed has been a solid way to calm Watson down (…he instantly relaxes, it’s kind of amazing!) and gives us a little break from puppy training, too. We grab our books, pour some fresh coffee and soak up time with our cuddly pup! It’s become our weekend ritual lately (…and sometimes part of my daily routine when I need a sanity break, ha! Working from home means it’s tough to turn my brain off…!), and one of my very favorite things we do as a little family.

Transition To Spring

livvyland-blog-olivia-watson-sole-society-spring-transition-shoes-outfit-idea-6
livvyland-blog-olivia-watson-sole-society-spring-transition-shoes-outfit-idea-4Ohh we are SO close to spring! It’s finally sunny in Austin today and I feel like my soul is revived a bit…over a week of miserable, rainy, cold, dark weather did quite a doozy on my mind…I’ve never experienced how deeply weather can effect my mood until this time around…and you can ask Blake, I was not a happy human to be around, haha ah! Anyone else feel the woes of grim weather? I feel like a lot of my friends have been feeling the same way lately.

In other (good!) news, spring fashion is HERE! If you’re an online shopper like me, you may have noticed all the winter goodies going on sale and fresh, spring picks hitting the “new arrivals” tabs. I’m excited to share this easy, season-to-season transitional look with y’all – you know I’m a sucker for mixing up neutrals (…and topping off with a bandana), so let’s get to it!

Under $70 Denim

livvyland-blog-olivia-watson-south-congress-avenue-austin-texas-fashion-life-style-blogger-bdg-high-waist-crop-flare-jeans-3livvyland-blog-olivia-watson-south-congress-avenue-austin-texas-fashion-life-style-blogger-bdg-high-waist-crop-flare-jeans-5Be still my heart. This pair of cropped flare denim is  e v e r y t h i n g . I watched Clueless over the weekend and since then, I’ve been a bit more valley girl-esque than usual. I guess what was “valley girl” in the 90s is now “basic” in the 2000s…either way, sometimes it’s fun to let your brain go to mush for a bit and use terminology that is mainstream girl code. In other words, when I say these jeans are “e v e r y t h i n g” = THESE PANTS ARE FREAKIN’ AMAZING!

The Skincare Products I Can’t Live Without

Hey friends, how was your weekend? Blake and I had an especially relaxing couple of days…watched some Netflix shows (we got sucked into the Dirty Money vortex and it was SO. GOOD. Highly recommend!), enjoyed time with both of our families and spent lots of quality time with Watson. It was one of those much needed, therapeutic weekends over here! When the week feels overwhelming and hectic, it’s always so nice to step back, recenter and focus on what’s important in life…which for me is always my relationships (Blake, family, puppers).

Buuuut just like that, it’s back to Monday. A fresh week filled with a lengthy to-do list and I haven’t even finished my coffee yet…ah! In the midst of all the crazy, there is one thing I can rely on to feel at ease and even a little pampered…and that is my favorite skincare products.

Clogs for Spring

Going back to my roots today! Which means…dressing in an ultra cozy, boho vibe. Growing up in Austin means it’s pretty much in my blood to dress casual for every occasion…and I’ve got no complaints there! It’s one of my favorite things about living here – you never feel pressured to get super dolled up. Barely-there makeup, second day hair (…that’s what hats are for! 😉 ), some free flowing layers and a fabulous pair of clogs…can you tell I am so ready for spring? Side note: it was 75 degrees when we shot this post, which makes me sooo happy! (Warm enough to order an iced beverage…#yaaas). Austin weather, you are totally CRAY but I sure do love you for providing a little sunshine this week.

I wasn’t so sure it’d be put to proper use living in Austin, however, it has proven to become a go-to in my wardrobe (…thanks to a rare, cold Texas winter!). While I am SO over the cold and very ready for spring everything (mostly sunshine…ohh how I miss that Vitamin D fix!), I am secretly still loving getting to wear all these beautiful layers. Needless to say, it’s been fun to enjoy winter styling this season!
