Bloggers with Class Award!



I am so honored to have been recognized by Kristin of The Dixie Daisy as a recipient of Classy Cathleen's Bloggers With Class Award!  See Kristin's original post here.   All recipients of the award answer the following questions, then must add an additional question.  Here are my answers!



-Who is your role model?
My parents are my role models.  My momma is the epitome of a strong, Southern woman and, like a lot of moms, has basically dedicated her entire life to taking care of my little brother and I.  My dad grew up with nothing and worked his tail off for a better life for himself.  Both of my parents stress the importance of education and are willing to do whatever it takes to get me through law school.  They have always encouraged me to explore, have fun, and be myself - whoever that may be for the time being.

-Who is your style icon?
I love the way that Audrey Hepburn and Jackie Onassis dressed.  I know it sounds cliche, but I try to style my outfits based on outfits they've been photographed in.  I love that their styles are so simple, yet glamorous at the same time.


-Pearls or bows?
Pearls! I have three different strands of classic pearls.  I wear them pretty frequently.

-Favorite color?
Pink, gold, and white {especially when paired together!}

-What makes someone classy?
A quiet confidence, tact, self-respect, and respect for others.

-Why is it important to be classy?
I think it's important to be yourself, and if you just so happen to carry yourself with class, then that's wonderful.  I feel that individuals that exhibit class are more likely to be taken seriously.  Having class opens a lot of doors and provides a lot of opportunities.

-What is your favorite quote?
"We are never defeated unless we give up on God." - Ronald Reagan

-Who/what inspires you?
The Kate Spade brand, strong women, my sorority sisters that will all change the world in their own way, teachers, a glass of sangria

-What is your favorite piece(s) of clothing?
My black Bisou Bisou pencil skirt, black leggings, Jack Rogers Navajos, and my "every day" jewelry - my mom's first engagement ring from dad, my sorority ring, and the diamond watch I received for my 22nd birthday


Each person who receives the award must add a new question, so here's mine- Do you think that class is becoming a thing of the past?


Here are my nominees for Classy Cathleen's Bloggers with Class Award:

Katelyn Carter at Southern Samplings
Whitney at McKenzie Wild
Carly at Chicago Prepster
Miss ALK at Southern Belle in Training 
Abigail Ogden at The Girl in Pink

So remember -- answer the questions, add your own, tag your favorites, and link back to my post and Classy Cathleen's post.  And thank you again for the opportunity, Kristin!


Hope everyone has an amazing Wednesday!  And how do you feel about my question -- do you think that class is becoming a thing of the past?

XX,

SS
