Weekend Wear: It's for the Cup!

If you haven't noticed... It's World Cup season! Whether you're attending a party, headed to your local sports bar or hanging out at home to watch a game or two, the perfect outfit is essential.

Pair a graphic tank with a casual boyfriend denim and cute flats to bring it all together. An adorable kate spade clutch doesn't hurt either!

The key to sporting event outfits is casual chic - think "oh, this old thing?".

What are you wearing to catch a world cup game?

31 Things Friday: What to Wear to a Wedding

Happy Wedding Season! I'm at a point in life where it seems that every weekend there's someone getting married. Just last weekend I attended a lovely celebration and was inspired to do a post on what to wear. It can be super tricky to decide what to wear, especially sans a dress code on the invite!

There are a few rules to follow no matter how dressy the occasion: no white, when in doubt go modest and accessories are key! You can dress up or dress down with accessories. Black is okay - just pair it with some color in either your jewelry or shoes so you don't look like you're headed to a funeral.

Clockwise from top left: wine, royal (also available in black), floral, teal, blue, orange (also available in black), pink, lime (also available in coral), cobalt

Clockwise from top left: navy, red, black & pink, red (also available in blue), purple, mint, black, pink, red, cream, blue (also available in purple), pink (also available in bright pink, black, coral, mint, orange & yellow)

Clockwise from top left: navy, magenta, blue, coral, pink, green (also available in black), blue, olive, blue, ocean

Are you headed to any special events this summer? What will you be wearing?

P.S. The missing links are asos dresses. The site was down at the time of writing/publishing (I'm a procrastinator, what can I say?) but will be updated as soon as possible!

Summer Playlist

One of my summer essentials is the perfect playlist. To me, a summer playlist should be perfectly curated to be versatile - fit for drives, parties and hanging by the pool.

Take a listen.

This playlist is currently just over an hour, so expect some additions as the summer goes on. I have lots of drives to and from East Lansing in my future.

Any song suggestions are welcome! What's your favorite jam this summer?

Weekend Wear: Fitness Frenzy

I'm finally back in the USA! This week has been some adjustment getting back into the swing of things - lots of to do lists & goal setting. No surprises there! One of my largest goals for the rest of the summer is getting into a fitness routine.

To play the part, you have to dress the part! I've been reaching for shorts and t-shirts to beat the summer heat.

Work it Out

This has been my go-to outfit whether I'm running, cross-training or doing ballet. More on my new fitness plans later.

For now, I want to know - do you prefer neutral sneakers or bright neon, colorful ones? Also, do you have a favorite brand?

The Coffee's Gone Cold

You may have noticed that it's been very quiet around here recently. If you're following me on any form of social media you've probably noticed that I'm gallivanting around Europe! I'm having a wonderful time, but it means Lattes with Liv has gotten a little neglected. I'm starting to bring myself to reality, but not fully joining until after my weekend trip to Paris with my dad. 

The blog will be up and running again next week, promise! There are lots of posts swimming around my head. 

Not all who wander are lost

In the meantime, I want to know what adventures you have planned for the summer!
