Rose Quartz April + Link-Up

Happy Monday, friends!  Before I launch into my post for today, don't forget that you have an opportunity to win a super cool, custom fashion sketch by my good high school friend, Kristine!  Enter the giveaway here and take a look at a few of her pieces (including a sketch she made of me).  A custom illustration would make for a fun gift or personal gallery wall piece!

I am back today with the fourth installment of my series about how to wear Rose Quartz (Pantone's color of the year) all year long!  For a quick review, in January I suggested a pretty top with Rose Quartz detailing for a simple look.  I used this pretty pink hue to create a romantic and feminine outfit in February.  And in March I paired Rose Quartz with pops of bright colors for a fun spring look!

This month, I'm actually wearing rose quartz...as in the stone!  I received these dangly Kendra Scott earrings in my most recent Rocks Box and knew that they would be perfect for this month's RQ feature!  So for April, I challenge you to wear Rose Quartz jewelry!

I wore this outfit for a fun day out!  I went to brunch and saw My Big Fat Greek Wedding 2 with my parents.  The first film is one of my all-time favorites so it was so fun to revisit all of the characters in the second movie.  I think it is so cool that all of the actors from the first one were on board for the second project.  What a fun group of people!  After the movie, I spent the afternoon and evening with one of my best friends.  I swear we laughed the entire time.  Have you ever eaten such a terrible meal at a restaurant that you had to leave and go to another restaurant for a second try at dinner?  We did and we had the best time cracking-up about it!

I really wanted it to be spring-like for my day of fun but alas, there was snow on the ground.  As usual lately, I went with light and bright colors so that I could at least channel the more cheerful weather!

But let's get back to those earrings for a minute!  I don't usually wear dangly earrings because I don't feel like they are very "me."  But one of the joys of Rocks Box is that you can borrow jewelry you wouldn't usually purchase, wear it for a little while and then send it back!  If you are interested in trying Rocks Box, use my code, whitneybff3, to receive a free month!  I've been using this service for about two years and I couldn't speak more highly of it!

What I'm Wearing:
Sweater: Gap (similar, similar)
Earrings: Kendra Scott (exact)
Jeans: LOFT (exact)
Converse: DSW (exact)

Now it's time for the Lovely à la Mode Link-Up!
