The whole entire point behind this outfit was the beautiful set of earrings 
I recieved as a surprise gift (you have to see the most adorable little package here)
from my friend Katie (dubbed "Firstie" circa 11th grade).

The real story behind them is: I saw them in a boutique we always visit together,
and commented how I adored them.
Katie said "Very you." 
Ok, does everyone know that my favorite color is purple? Just checking. Moving on.
A few weeks after we spent that day together, I came home from work and found them waiting!
I was so so excited, first because they are the best ever,
second they are a wonderful reminder of the sweet & thoughtful friends I have.
I called Katie that night (she was in Hawaii...her life is really hard) but once again:
THANK YOU Katie! I love them!

I wanted to keep the rest of the look very simple to showcase the earrings, 
sock bun, white button-up (though the lighting is a bit weird, I promise it's white)
and the cutest little black shorts I borrowed from my housemate, Taylor.
How lucky am I to have two super stylish girls to live with! 

To be perfectly (as is the theme with this blog) honest,
Hunter told me if I didn't wear lipstick when we went out, he would buy me a snack. 
HE SAYS I have a really nice natural lip color,
I THINK he still hasn't forgiven me for getting lipstick on his collar once in a hug gone awry.
Needless to say I went with the snack. 
And eating a soft preztel is SO MUCH easier without red lips!

Hope everyone is enjoying a beautiful weekend!
Thanks for sharing mine.

those earrings are gorgeous, I LOVE the color and how it's a statement necklace:) So cute with a classic black and white outfit. But love how you added the leopard print flats, it goes great with the pop of color from your earrings. Ahhhh obsessed with this outfit! So nice of Katie to get them for you, hope she is having fun in Hawaii!
