The Big 16

Happy Easter Sunday, lovelies! This weekend was full of busy, adventure, and fun as I celebrated my seventeenth birthday. I thought I’d just share a quick recap of how the weekend went down.

If there’s one thing I learned as a sixteen year old, it’s that quality trumps quantity any day- in possession, in talents, and definitely in friends. That’s why I opted to spend my day with just a few of my closest friends (from left to right: Alec, me, Emily, and Emma). After picking up my new iPhone 6, a birthday gift from my parents, we headed out for a day of pretending we were still little kids. Growing up in a city where kids act like adults way too soon, if you know what I mean, it’s all too easy to forget that 17 is still so young. That’s why we decided to rewind a year or nine and took a trip to Adventure Landing. After an afternoon of Go-Karts, Laser Tag (we totally got destroyed by a couple of scary 11 year olds), and Putt-Putt and our childish desires were fulfilled, we grabbed dinner at Casa Rita’s and called it a night.

Of course such a wonderful day would not be complete without a fabulous new outfit. Yes, I realize these green shorts were also featured in my Concert Daze post last Thursday, but I can’t help it. They’re so comfortable yet so, so adorable. You can’t tell in the iPhone pictures above but I’m also wearing a black lace tank with my trusty bralette layered underneath. I’ve also been super into the layered necklace boho look. For a high school student like yours truly, Forever 21 is the best place for inexpensive yet unique pieces, plus they sell sets 3 or 4 pre-matched for less than $10 (?!?!) like the ones pictured above. My lovely best friend Emily gifted me my first Kendra Scott piece, a simple black stone on a gold chain, which I could not wait to put on as well! Links to everything, per usual, will be down below.

All in all it was a blast of a day and I’m so blessed with the best friends ever. Sorry for the iPhone quality pictures, I hope the memory and the meaning behind them make up for it. Do y’all like these more personal posts? Let me know in the comments if you want me to keep doing these types of updates!
