OOTD: My favorite fashion post *ever*

     I have been literally dying with anticipation of this blog post!! I don't think I have ever been so excited to share an outfit post before. :-) When my photographer friends Shara and Meredith visited me in Charlotte a couple weeks ago, we had a little photoshoot in Uptown Charlotte! I got to model for both of them, and I'm about to show you the pictures from the first outfit that I wore. I loved both Shara and Meredith's pictures so much that I've decided to show five pictures from each photographer!! Ready to see?

Next five pictures are credit of Shara Lynn Photography

My favorite picture of all!!

Dress, Coat, Purse & Necklace: H&M || Sunglasses: Kohl's || Shoes: Nine West (purchased at TJ Maxx) || Bracelets (Left hand): c/o Urban Peach Boutique || Bracelet (Right hand): Christmas gift (from one of the photographers :-)) 

     I am IN LOVE with these pictures!! I feel like I can't even recognize myself (in a good way). :-) These two ladies did an excellent job with capturing both me and my style! If you are located in Maine or Virginia and are ever in need of photography services, I would highly recommend both Shara and Meredith! If you would like to read more about the adventures that we had in Charlotte (how I met and became friends with both of these girls in the first place!) read this post. 

     As far as my outfit, you will see that majority of it came from H&M. This is because it was the outfit that I got to take home when Shara and I won the H&M store opening contest (which was hosted by NC fashion blogger Emily from Life with Emily)! I still cannot believe that I got to get this complete beautiful outfit for free! The H&M contest was probably the coolest thing I've ever won. 

     I still have one more outfit to share that Shara and Meredith to pictures of- so stay tuned for that later in the week! And next week will be filled with re-caps and OOTDs from my Spring Break trip to the Dominican Republic!
