SHOP MORE SUNDRESSES
We made it to FRIDAY! …Which means you’ll find me in comfy clothes, like light layers in the prettiest color palette. I’m a sucker for earth tones and when I saw this rust colored cardigan (currently 30% off!), I knew it would be SO perfect layered over an ultra soft v-neck tee (…and ohh that olive green is just perfection!). (Ps. You can see how I styled my cardi with a halter top on my Insta-feed here).

When I was 10-years-old, my grand life plan was to be a professional ballerina AND an OBGYN…(because clearly those two careers goes hand-in-hand). I’ve always loved kids (hence the helping birth babies thing…I just failed to understand what that actually entailed) and who doesn’t watch ballerinas in awe and adoration? Over time, I learned I had a passion for writing and said so long to my previous life plans. I was about 13 when I changed my mind and was stuck on the idea of becoming a fashion magazine writer.read more
Hey gals! I’m currently en route to Palm Beach, Florida for a fun collaboration with the Lilly Pulitzer team – actually writing this from the airplane! I grabbed my mom and we’re ready for a couple days of r&r and hopefully a few margaritas by the pool. I am in desperate need of a relaxing getaway right about now! You can follow the fun over on my Instagram feed (trust me, their spring/summer collections are SO cute!!). Can’t wait to share more as we get settled in and hit the beach!
If you’ve followed me for a while, you may have noticed that I wear a lot of J.O.A. clothing (this brand is sold at Nordstrom and Shopbop, which is where I discovered it!). There’s a reason I keep coming back for more of their beautiful products, and when I saw this adorable ruffled maxi dress, I knew right away I needed to share it with y’all! It would SO perfect worn to a spring (…or summer!) wedding.

It’s been a doozy of week in the Watson/Printy house – so fiiiiinally taking some time to curl my hair, shave my legs (ahh, necessary to feel refreshed), and throw on a sexy and seriously GORGEOUS mini skirt was what I needed to feel oh so pretty (…and clean! and confident!). I’ve been a sweaty mess in moving-mode for the last five days, so stepping out to shoot this post kinda revived my spirit. Always feels so nice to have one of those “Oh! So this is what I couuuuuld look like if I changed out of track shorts today…” moments, ha!
A few days left to shop the amazing Shopbop Event Of The Season Sale! Take up to 25% off site-wide – brands like Tory Burch, Soludous (those shoes!), Madwell, Levi’s and SO many more! Seriously…if there’s any time to scoop up those swimsuits or shoes you’ve been eyeing for spring and summer, today is THE day! Going to leave it at that & let y’all get to shopping!

Our big secret is finally out: we bought a house!!! Ah! We are all moved in and I can OFFICIALLY share the wonderful news!! We know the home buying process can get tricky, so I wanted to wait until it was 100% ours before I shared the news on my blog. We are beyond elated and so happy to be in the home of our dreams!
Let’s start the week on a high note because….LOFT is having a 40% off site-wide ‘Friends & Family’ SALE! And y’all, their new spring pieces are SO. CUTE. Not to mention, when everything is nearly half off, that is reason enough to add some seasonal updates to your wardrobe! I am always so thrilled to partner with LOFT because I adore their clothing and brand aesthetic, but today is extra special because I grabbed one of my very best friends, Veronica, (who is also a petite section shopper – she’s 4’11, so all my petite readers, take note of her look! 😉 ) and we had ourselves a galpal date over the weekend to share a few of our favorite pieces from the sale. The best part? Both of our outfits come in regular and petite sizes. Yep…the good news just keeps getting better.

Hope your weekend is off to a wonderful start! I’m excited to share a few of my favorite spring pieces in today’s post – and in particular, those GORG shoes! Ohh how I swooned when I first put them on…lace-up, a higher heel (hello, longer legs!), peep-toe…these are magical shoes that make you feel extra confident and fabulous. Not to mention, they’re casual yet statement-worthy enough to rock to the cutest, low-key brunch/coffee spot in town – Hillside Farmacy. (…I mean really, how cute is their patio?!).

A question I receive often from readers and new bloggers is: how do you build your brand? It’s a question that comes with a loaded response (…and time, of course), but I feel there are a few key components that are the building blocks to creating a brand that speaks to a sense of style, written voice, and photo aesthetic that is authentic to you.
