Spring via Instagram.

     This was my last full week of classes for this semester. I can't believe that my sophomore year of college has almost come to a close! It's been a stressful past few weeks for me: both with the amount of things that I've had to do, and some things that have been going on for me personally. I will be sharing more about that next week! But I wanted a fun and light post since it's Friday, and I realized that I haven't shared a recap of what's been happening on my Instagram account in awhile!

     I was challenged by a friend in the Delight and Be Facebook group that I'm apart of to share a make-up free picture of myself on social media... so of course I had to pick one of my favorite pictures from my recent trip to the Dominican Republic!! :-) Aren't these guys just too handsome?!

     Greek Week at my college was a couple of weeks ago, so I tried to wear letters as many days as I could to be festive and show Greek pride! This is one of my favorite ADPi letter shirts. The letters are from the Lilly Pulitzer Hearts a Flutter print, and they were bought from Greek apparel company Jenna Benna.

     A close-up of some of the jewelry pieces that I wore to my sorority's Black Diamond formal! My two beloved Alex & Ani bracelets (that I wear in many of my OOTD posts and almost every single day!) and a dainty gold pendant. But the special thing about these jewelry pieces is that they were all Christmas gifts from my three best friends in Maine. The silver bangle is from Jules, my best friend from high school, the gold bangle is from Shara, my Maine bestie who I actually originally met online, and the necklace is from Katie, my childhood best friend from home!! In the weeks leading up to formal I was feeling really homesick and especially missing my best girlfriends from home, so I loved being able to incorporate gifts of theirs into my outfit!

     Recently Charlotte had some wonderfully warm weather! Last Saturday I was able to head to a lake for the day with one of the sweet girls that I intern with at the Ryan Seacrest Foundation. Once we got back to Charlotte we stopped for fro-yo! Charlotte has tons of fro-yo places so we decided to try one that was new to both of us: Cherry Berry. I thought it was delicious and would definitely go back!

     Lastly, sorority gals, have you entered my giveaway for a Greek lavalier necklace with The Collegiate Standard yet? You still have plenty of time to enter!! Here is my Instagram picture of my adorable lavalier. I paired it with a favorite Lilly dress (and the nails that came in my latest Influenster VoxBox)!

     Hope that all of y'all will be having a wonderful Easter weekend! I'm looking forward to spending some time with my wonderful Big, Jess, and then heading off to my friend Ciera's house for Easter! Easter is my favorite holiday so I always look forward to this time of year. :-)

     xoxo Miss ALK
