In The Spotlight: Blazers & Sami Girl

If I were to pick one thing I always gravitate to buying when I'm out shopping - it would definitely be a good blazer. Whether they are loose, fitted, solid or striped I'm in love with how effortless they look and how many different styles you can create with them. They are usually my go-to piece when I'm not feeling anything else in my closet simply because you can pair them with so many things.

I've created quite the collection of striped blazers (coral and white, black and white, cream and navy..) over the years and I have to literally say outloud to myself "your wallet is closed", via Confessions of A Shopaholic, when I see others I like. With that being said, I do believe blazers are classic and you can never have enough. ;) I've recently become smitten with bright colored blazers and the hot pink one I found a few months ago has quickly become a favorite of mine.

What is your favorite color for a blazer right now?
Do you love blazers as much as I do?


Just like blazers, this girl I'm about to introduce you to is a favorite of mine.
Her name is Sami and she's got killer style, a killer blog,
anddd she's BFF with Gavin Degraw.
Her precious puppy Lily would definitely be Rocky's girlfriend if they met. For sure.
Sami just wrote a hilarious post "Things Girls Love That Guys Hate"
and it's so great.
You definitely need to get to know her.

Take it away, miss Sami!

Hello fellow Keep Calm & Carry On lovers!
Isn't Katie the sweetest?
If we are being honest here,
I should tell you that reading Katie's blog was one of the reasons I decided to jump into it myself!
Which I did, in December of this past year.
Yes, I've only been blogging for 4 months and I'm still learning everyday..
but I absolutely love it!


Before I get carried away I should probably introduce myself..
Hi, I'm Sami and I blog over @ Sami's Shenanigans!


I was born and raised in Colorado and currently live in Denver,

but I've also spend some time in Oklahoma and Texas.
These places will always hold a special place in my heart!


My blog is a little bit of everything because I write about all of the things I love in my crazy life.
From cooking and fashion, to music and Pinterest, I just about cover it all.
You'll hear me talk about Gavin DeGraw, my favorite TV shows, and my love for Instagram.

Gavin and I are kind of BFF's..nbd.


I will also post wayyy to many pictures of my sweet Chihuahua/Min Pin mix, Lily!


Is she not the sweetest little girl you've ever seen?
I saved her from a not so happy childhood, which you can read about here.

I love sharing my crazy stories and I my hope is that others will enjoy reading them.
Come on over and see for yourself, I would LOVE to have you!


Have a fabulous day :)

  5. I LOVE blazers but for some reason I'm not convinced I can pull off the look. I'm going to have to get past my complex one of these days. They are too cute.
