Heidi Grippo from Bella Bambino Photography took my senior pictures and I just love them! She does such a phenomenal job and completely exceeded my expectations! I wanted my pictures to look similar to something you would see in a magazine and I thought we really achieved that! literally just showed up to the shoot with clothes and Heidi did everything else…. Poses, locations, editing, I mean she literally did it all. Since I only had one job, I made sure to do it well. I brought sooooooo many clothes. Probably too many. I made sure to bring things that could all be mixed and matched together and we threw the outfits together on the spot. Several of the outfits I would never wear in public but they turned out to be some of my favorites on camera. For example, what appears to be a crop top in the overalls outfit is a black tee shirt tucked in so it looks like a crop top. The hats were my favorite items of the entire shoot. I thought they added a vintage vibe, and really pulled it all together. She had me wear at least one piece in each outfit that had a pop of color too. I had an absolute blast shooting these! Be sure to check out Heidi’s website to see some of her other work, she rocks!

Thanks again Heidi!

This floral printed dress is another adorable find from Stash in Cape Girardeau MO. It is so cute and the print is perfect for spring and summer. I love wearing dresses because they are so comfy, and it appears that you’re trying way harder than you actually are. They are so effortless and I love the movement of this one when I walk.  This one looks so cute with a floppy hat and some simple gold jewelry to dress it up a little. Lace up shoes are so trendy this season and I love these nude ones.

Happy Wednesday, xoxo, Sam

Lately I have been obsessed with denim… Shirts, jackets, dresses. You just can’t go wrong! I snagged this denim dress off the Old Navy clearance rack for about $10 (whoo). I love the two different blues and the effortless vibe it gives off. Color blocking is so trendy right now and I love that this dress embodies that trend with denim. I have been seeing lace up flats all over Pinterest and Instagram and knew I had to get a pair. They are so versatile and go with so many different outfits (check out this sandals version). I’m on the hunt for a black pair too, I just can’t get enough!

Today is my first day back at school from spring break! Only 29 more school days until graduation… Crazy! I have been praying a lot about my future after high school and I am so excited for the plan God has for me!

Talk to ya Wednesday! Xoxo, Sam

OH MY GOSH! This statement jacket is so adorable. It is from the cutest boutique in downtown Cape Girardeau, Missouri, called Stash. They do not have a website but here is their Facebook if you would like to check them out, I absolutely love their clothes and they are always getting new stuff in stock!

This crazy So. Il. weather is keeping me on my toes. Does anyone else struggle getting dressed because it is freezing in the morning and warm enough for shorts by noon? Girl, I feel your pain! If you have the same issues as me, this jacket is for you. It is super lightweight and so adorable. You can totally dress it up with some heels and a dress, or go for a more casual look with some jeans and flats like I did. Either way, you will definitely stand out with this coat.
