When you have family pictures taken on a horse farm, you use that opportunity to take some truly incredible blog photos.
Once again, JHillis Photography has captured some truly stunning photos. He may be family, but his talent is undeniable!
For the family pictures, my Mom wanted us all to wear chambray and pearls. Other than that, we could decide how we styled our outfit. I was feeling the Spring weather and decided to go with a floral vibe. My blazer is from J.Crew Factory and it was a total steal. After the sale price, a coupon and my teacher discount, I only paid around $20! This is an amazing price for something that retailed well over $100!
I had a lot of fun with my accessories by piling on the pearls. This brought a touch of girlishness to my outfit and keep me true to my Southern roots. Southern girls love their pearls! My clutch is real leather and is an oldie, but a goodie. It is from my days of working at Nine West in college and, thanks to a sale price and a great employee discount, I only paid around $30. I really miss that discount!
Would you believe that my chambray is maternity??!! I absolutely loved the color and length of this chambray and hated to pack it away with my maternity clothes. It may be a little big, but the blazer helped to hide the extra bulk! And if I hadn’t told you, you probably never would have known!
It was a beutiful day and Jordan really did capture some special moments between all the girls in our family. Three generations in one photo! If you want to check out all of the photos from the shoot, the head on over to his blog and see some of the pictures from the day! And while you are at it, contact him about doing your own family photo shoot!

Sometimes I forgot how lucky I am to live in a city as beautiful Savannah. There is history around every corner and so many amazing photo opportunities. One minute you could be standing in the middle of a lush, green park and the next you could be standing in a square surrounded by beautiful Victorian buildings with pink walls.
That pink wall is exactly where I found myself for these pictures.
This pretty, pink wall belongs to The Pink House. This Georgian mansion, which is now a fine dining restaurant, was built in 1771 for James Habersham Jr., one of Savannah’s most important early cotton factors and founding-family members. The Pink House is a popular destination for Savannah ghost hunters.Patrons of the restaurant claim to have found themselves in conversation with James Habersham Jr., who supposedly hanged himself in the basement in 1799. It is said that his restless spirit frequently wanders around his old home on quiet nights.
This beautiful pink wall was the perfect backdrop for one of my favorite purchases of all time! This H&M coat is truly amazing and is the perfect piece for Spring. After seeing on my sweet friend Emily of The Style Hunt, I knew that it needed to be a part of my collection.
I paired it with a pair of classic white skinnies, a textured white blouse and some fun yellow accessories. I felt that the all white outfit really helped the coat to stand out and the pops of yellow brought out the yellow details in my coat.
One of my yellow accessories was these fun tassel earrings. They are such a standout piece and I know that I will be able to do a lot with them this Spring.
If you are ever in Savannah, I encourage you to stop by The Pink House. The food is exceptional, the atmosphere is unique and, who knows, maybe you will even be able to have a conversation with the ghost of James Habersham Jr.!

I recently purchased the most perfect Spring Coat from H&M. I mean seriously, this thing is fabulous. Oversized, pink and covered with birds!! I could not wait to wear this beauty so my Sis-In-Law’s Bridal Shower was the perfect oppurtunity. I paired it with a simple black, fitted dress from TJ Maxx. I bought the dress for less than $20 so if you are not current TJ Maxx shopper, then you really need to change that!! The dress has some stretch to it so it was perfect for my growing baby belly. For shoes, I went with my classic, comfy wedged faux booties. This shoes are seriously comfy which is super important for my back and belly, plus makes walking on Savannah cobblestones a lot easier. The large, thick heel keeps me from slipping in cracks and gives me a little extra support. The shoes were also purchased at a discount store, Ross, and… wait for… cost me a total of… $15!! They are Steve Madden so you know they are good quality!!
But let’s get back to this coat…
I mean look at this beauty…
The price also did not break the bank!! I paid less than $50 for this beauty!! I keep my jewelry simple and classic to let the coat do all of the talking and I got more than enough compliments!!
I really love how these pictures turned out. It helps that I live in such a beautiful city!! Here are a few more from the shoot! Oh, and if you want to purchase this coat on your own, just click on this link!! Happy Shopping Friends!!
