livvyland-blog-olivia-watson-austin-texas-fashion-blogger-toms-coffee-roasters-silver-jeans-tuesday-skinny-jeans-vans-slip-on-black-sneakers-10Hello friends! I’m currently writing this post from a coffeehouse in Austin…it’s rainy and cold outside but there’s Christmas music playing and I’m nice and bundled up at my little table…Ohh how I love the holidays! We got back from Mexico last night and after sleeping like a rock, I woke up ready to take on the week (…with the help of a double latte, obvs..! 😉 ).

If you’ve been following me for over a year, you’ll remember my last post with Silver Jeans (you can see that post here) – one of my favorite denim brands, for more reason than one! 1. Adorable 2. Affordable 3. THE nicest team EVER! Seriously, I love the folks behind the brand as much as I love their denim… and that’s saying a lot! 😉

Dusty Pink Cardigan & Ankle Booties

livvyland-blog-olivia-watson-blush-pink-dusty-rose-cardigan-sweater-free-people-thermal-top-cozy-light-layers-nordstrom-fall-outfit-4 Happy Sunday, ladies! I hope you’ve had a wonderful, relaxing weekend thus far! We’re still in Mexico but headed home this evening…I thought I’d squeeze in a blog post while Blake is still sleeping…coffee in hand and a view of palm trees swaying in the breeze from our balcony. No complaints here! 😉 Though I’ve been in “warm weather mode” this weekend, I’ve been told it’s quite cold back in Austin…thus as soon as we touch down tonight, it’s goodbye cutoff shorts and hello cozy knits, jeans and ankle booties!

Not to mention, after thoroughly enjoying stuffing my face over the Thanksgiving holiday, let’s just say my body has been telling me to get up and mooooove, even if the sweatpants in my closet are calling my name. 😉

Cozy Coffee Date & A BIG Cyber Monday Sale!

livvyland-blog-olivia-watson-express-cyber-monday-sweater-sale-lauren-vandiver-vandi-fair-cozy-outfit-friend-date-elizabeth-street-cafe-4If there’s one thing I love about the holidays, it’s that I get to spend more time with my out-of-town friends! It has sort of become one of those unexpected holiday traditions I look forward to each year. (When you’re younger, you don’t exactly look ahead and think half of your friend crew will move away one day!). Thus, this particular time of year is dear to my heart given that we get to spend some quality time together! One of my very best friends, Lauren of Vandi Fair, came into town last week with our fellow galpal and photographer, Angie, so we all met for a coffee & pastry date at the darling Elizabeth Street Cafe. I’d been dying to go here for quite some time, and after picking out some cozy sweaters in the prettiest pink hues from Express, we knew a powder pink and teal coffeehouse was the perfect spot for a catchup sesh…and of course some photo opps while we were at it! 😉

Psst…both our outfits are on MAJOR sale this weekend because Express is having an awesome Cyber Monday Sale (…that’s already in full swing!)…Y’all, 50% off everything!! If there’s any time to load up on cozy sweaters and knits, it’s most definitely today!
