The Modern Holly Golightly

Dress:  Forever 21 ~ Shoes:  DSW ~ Braceletes:  Forever 21
Earrings:  Clair's ~ Bag:  Kate Spade New York

This blog post is kind of special because it falls on the same week as my birthday!  I turned 19 on Tuesday and had the most amazing day!  Breakfast at Tiffany's is my favorite movie and Audrey Hepburn is my all time idol, so I decided to throw a Breakfast a Tiffany's brunch with six of my closest friends.  The decorations came together perfectly, the cake came out beautifully, but what made the day so great was that I was surrounded by six beautiful women that each mean so much to me!  I can't even express how grateful I am to have found such wonderful friends!   We have always been there for each other as we've gone through this crazy thing called life!  The have been there to make me laugh when all I want to do is cry,  give me the truth when I all want to hear is lies, and have encouraged me to always stay true to myself.  No matter where we are 19 years from now I will always remember these girls and the impact they have made on my life!

With this look I mimicked Holly Golightly's classic black dress and pearls (of course!).  This is one of my favorite dresses because its kind of sexy with it's fitted style, but the pearl collar adds a classy flair!  I then added my favorite nude pumps for a little sass!  My parents were so incredibly sweet and gave me a Kate Spade (my favorite designer) bag for my birthday!  So of course I had to carry my new prize on my special day!  I topped the outfit off with my pearls and voilà!  The modern Holly Golightly!

If you have been blessed with wonderful friends like I have, then hold on to them.  Don't take people like that for granted!  I hope all of you have a wonderful and blessed week!
