What I Wore Wednesday:: A Date with Dahlia

 On Monday, I got to spend the whole day with my buddy, Dahlia. She is leaving the island on Thursday and I had to snag her for one last hurrah. We spent the day shopping, getting our hairs cut, discussing life and driving around the island. We ate at my very favorite restaurant on Oahu (Crepes No Ka Oi... a party in your mouth.) and also stopped at a pretty awesome spot called the Spitting Cave.

The ocean has been pounding away at this cliff for many years and a cave has formed at the water's edge. When the waves crash into, they get sucked in and spat back out in a huge mist, often forming beautiful rainbows.

We took advantage of the beautiful locale and shot some outfit pictures for What I Wore Wednesday.

I didn't edit these first pictures at all-- the water really is that blue. Also, it was really windy so don't mind our crazy hair.

We saw some huge turtles bobbing around down there too. Love those guys. 

Dahlia is not only one of the most kind, hilarious and Godly women I know, but she's also one of the most stylish. She is always showing up at my house with adorable clothes and accessories that I threaten to steal. 

earrings:: {a gift from her sis from Cuba}
scarf:: {target-- same one I have!}
tank:: {target}
pants:: {gap}
sandals:: {payless}

Isn't she adorable? I'm pretty much in love with her and I am so sad that she is going back to Texas with her husband. Well, I'm happy for them but sad for me. 

necklace:: {oh sweet joy}
white tank:: {forever21}

Oh, what sweet blessings sister-friends are.
