Are You Sassy?: My favorite LBD, family photos, and how my blog got it's name

We took family photos on Friday, and I used it as an excuse to take blog photos, as well.  Taking blog photos tends to be a nightmare - the logistics wear me out, and then when I finally get all of that handled, I get nervous and shy and don't want my photo taken.

My brother and I had planned on taking blog photos downtown, but the second we got in the car, it started raining.  So we made a Starbucks run to kill time, and when we arrived at the photography studio, the sun was out.  So we shot blog photos directly across the street from his studio.  There was a brick wall and a painted white brick wall... what more could a blogger want?!

Following our impromptu blog shoot, we had family photos taken.  If you are in Northeast Tennessee and looking for a photographer, I highly recommend David J. Clapp - The Art of Photography.  His studio is gorgeous and very relaxing, and I've never felt more at ease having my photo taken than I did with David, his adorable daughter, and Logan.

When we started taking photos separately, David asked if I was sassy, and my mom said,"Of course she's sassy! That's where her blog name came from!"  And that's what inspired today's post :)
















 





Dress:  Cynthia Rowley  •  Shoes:  Nordstrom (similar)
Watch:  Gucci  •  Bracelet:  David Yurman
Black & Silver Bracelet:  Boutique in Spain  •  Lip Color:  Naturally Flushed

When I started the Twitter account that turned into this blog, my style was extremely preppy, as it had been my whole life.  At the time, I was going through a seersucker phase, and that's how the seersucker part of the name was born!  My style isn't nearly as preppy as it was when I started this blog, but I don't plan on changing my blog name.  When I think of seersucker, I think of sweet tea, grass under my barefeet in the summertime, and the South.  No matter where I go or how my style evolves, I know those are things I'll always think of and smile.

And if you've read my blog for any amount of time, you can probably guess where the sass comes from ;)  Sometimes I don't know how my parents didn't just send me off, and I'm so thankful that they never tried to subdue my personality.

Speaking of sass, how sassy is this little black dress?!  I love that the lining layer is shorter than the sheer panel of fabric that hits right above my knee.  I picked this up while I was in Charleston, and I haven't been able to find it online, so I've linked some of my other favorite LBD's in the widget at the bottom.

Happy Wednesday, y'all!  I want to hear from you - where did your blog name come from?!

  2. Love that dress on you! I had an old blog, but I outgrew it. My new bag name represents two of my favorite things: stripes (currently overtaking my closet) and sangria, which is one of my favorite drinks!

  3. Yay I'm so glad your family photos went well. I can relate to dreading the logistics of setting up blog photos. I love your sassiness and this super cute black dress. My Mom always called me sassy growing up, maybe that's why you and I get along so well?

  17. Girl, I can totally relate! The fact that my parents and I survived my childhood and teen years is a freaking miracle. So much sass! But it adds such personality. I love your association of seersucker and the south. That's what I always think of as well. Stay sassy! ❤️

  22. That dress is so pretty! Love it. Oh, and kind of weird, but when my husband strolls through my Snapchat stories (because he doesn't have one but likes looking at them), he ALWAYS says out loud - almost yelling -"seersucker sass!" Haha, it makes me laugh every time. I think he is fond of your name!
