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 🙂
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?!
