Summer Style Series Vol 1.3: Natalie Watkins

I've wanted to do style interviews on my blog for awhile now, and I've been bothering Natalie about participating. She's been one of my best friends for 13 years now! So I can text her and bother her as much as I'd like muahaha. But really I wanted to feature her for a very specific reason. We have such different styles. Natalie is very boho and adventurous. She wear stunning pieces that I could never pull off. At the same time, she has this sense of timelessness (a word? you get the gist) she inherited from her Mom's wonderful advice and closet. Check out her blog HERE! because I swear on my life she actually IS living a real fairytale. Go read about it later, I vow that it's true!

Hollie: Why did you start blogging?
Natalie: I originally started my blog as a travel blog. Recently I decided to expand on that and include everything that interests me.

Hollie: What's something your readers don't know about you?
Natalie: I am currently living in Switzerland with the love of my life and our new kitten Miko, I am in heaven.

Hollie: Describe your personal style in five words.
Natalie: classic yet trendy, simple yet sexy, but most importantly comfortable!

Hollie: What inspires your style?
Natalie: Everything inspires my style. From walking down the street and seeing something interesting on someone else, to photos online or in magazines, my fashion eye is always open.

Hollie: What items can't you live without?
Natalie: My mac lingering eyebrow pencil, if I had no make up but that I would be okay.
My nude flats from Urban, I wear them with everything.
My black Marc by Marc Jacobs cross body bag, it's small and only fits the essentials, but it's turned me into a minimalist. 

Hollie: Where are your favorite places to shop?
Natalie: Nordstrom, Urban Outfitters and random San Diego boutiques

Hollie: What's the best deal you've gotten lately?
Natalie: I got an Aqua maxi dress from Bloomingdales for sale online. I think the original price was around $150 and with shipping I got it for about $80. It fits like a dream, hugs in all the right places and just skims the ground, making it wearable with wedges or flats.

Hollie: You can buy any three things. What would you pick?
Natalie: ANY three things? I would go for the obvious: louboutin pumps, louis purse, ect. but thats unrealistic.
Realistically, I would get a pair of black ballet flats, boring I know but my current black flats have been worn to death.
I have been looking everywhere for a leather, tobacco colored, cross body, messenger bag for summer but have not been able to find the ideal one.
Finally, a perfect fitting pair of jeans because that seems to be impossible for me.

Hollie: What would the fashion police catch you on?
Natalie: Last week I wore black tights under a maxi skirt. It looked ridiculous when I lifted the skirt up, but it was cold and I wanted to wear it so bad.

Hollie: Last but not least! What blogs inspire you?
Natalie: The first blog I really started reading was popsugar. Now they have a section called fabsugar, which I love.
I also love hollie takes notes for a fun informative read.

Such a suck up :) Thank you, thank you Natalie!!
