A Little About Me | Seersucker Sass

A Little About Me

I was recently nominated for the Liebster Award by Cristina of Cristina on Campus!  I really loved the questions she chose, so I wanted to take a moment to answer them and give y'all a chance to get to know me, as well as give y'all the opportunity to answer them so that I can get to know you a little better.


1. How did you decide on the title of your blog?
When I chose to start blogging, I wanted to build a brand for myself, so I went with A Little Seersucker Sass because it's based off of my twitter name - @seersuckersass.  I chose Seersucker Sass because seersucker embodies summer to me, and who doesn't love summer time?  Sass is appropriate because my childhood nickname from my dad was "sassy."  I have found that blogging semi-anonymously works best for me because I can be hesitant to share my writings with people that I know. 

2. What made you decide to start your blog?
I've always loved writing, and I even had "fashion xangas" in high school.  (How much did I just age myself?!)  My blog seemed like the natural extension from my Twitter account, for when I had things to say that took more than 140 characters.

3. What is your favorite food?
Stiry Fry Combo from a local restaurant and my momma's Italian burgers.  I can be as sick as a dog, but I will still be able to stomach either of those.  I also really love Demo's in Nashville.

4. Where is your favorite place to shop?
My style "secret" is that I buy what I like, regardless of if it comes from a big name retailer or a teeny tiny boutique a mile from my apartment.  I'm a huge Lilly Pulitzer lover, and I buy most of my work clothes at either White House | Black Market, J.Crew, and Banana Republic.  I also really love TJ Maxx because I can find anything and everything there - clothing, shoes, housewares, stationery, you name it!

5. If you could travel anywhere in the world where would it be and why?
Right now, I have Mexico on my mind.  I think that I would move there if I could.  I went over Christmas break, and I fell in love with the culture.  I also have plans to go to Chicago this year for the first time!

6. What's your favorite pastime other than blogging?
I work full time in marketing and events, so when I'm not working or blogging, I'm usually at someone else's event, or spending time with my boyfriend and our dog, Francis.  I really like to craft on occasion!

7. What's your favorite post you've written and why?
My personal favorite is Life Lessons from Dad, that I wrote for my dad on his birthday.  I'm pretty quiet about my blogging, but my dad has been one of my biggest supporters in this adventure!  He still talks about that blog post months later.

8. A long lost relative gives you a large sum of money, what do you do with it?
A new Louis bag & law school!

9. What is your all time favorite movie?
It's super cliche, but I love Breakfast at Tiffany's.  I've loved it forever, but I wrote about it once for comp class, and I think that made me love it even more.  I also really love Uptown Girls! It's so corny, but I can't help but to watch it every time it's on TV.  And I love to quote Clueless.

10. Where do you see your blog going in the next year?
I have quite a few projects in the works right now, so I'm really excited to see them come into fruition!  I'm also going to reveal a new blog layout!!  And my personal goal is to do more fashion posts.

11. Where does your blog inspiration come from?
Everywhere - events, people I encounter, real life experiences!  When I'm looking for inspiration, I usually peruse Pinterest, other blogs, or read a magazine.


Unlike the traditional Liebster Award protocol, I'm not going to assign anyone to answer the questions.  If you'd like to answer them, feel free to answer in the comments, or create a blog post where you answer the questions here.  Be sure to link back to this post!

Thanks for reading and taking a little time to get to know me!  I hope you have an amazing weekend :)

XX,

SS
