Earring Exchange Link Up!

For the earring exchange, I was lucky enough to be paired with Mariel from The Preppy Student—the host of the giveaway! Her blog is so much fun and as a fellow Panhellenic woman, I love her pride for her sorority, Pi Beta Phi! I knew we would be a great pair.

With Mariel being the host,  I looked forward to picking out earrings that were extra special! I found these great House of Harlow earrings and knew they would fit this Pi Phi angel PERFECTLY! I was so glad to see that she liked them! You can check out her post on the earrings HERE.

I received my package from Mariel over the weekend and was so excited/ surprised to find not just one, but TWO pairs of earrings! I didn’t quite know how to describe my earring style so I said “Southern Belle goes to the beach” was the best way to describe me! I love big earrings and she surely did not disappoint!

The first pair of earrings really fits in with my bold but preppy side. They are big, double flower dangle earrings made from pink and orange enamel. They are fun and girly and I threw them on with my chambray shirt yesterday when I made a quick run to the grocery store. If I had looked a little cute, I would’ve taken a picture, so for now, this will have to do!

The second pair fits in with my beachy side! They are little silver starfish dangles that feature a pearl in the center! What I love about these earrings is that they also remind me of my sorority, Sigma Kappa. With the pearl being our official jewel/symbol, you will often find us Sigma girls in our pearls. I try my best to wear pearls in some way each day, so these earrings fit in with more than half of my jewelry collection!

Thank you SO much, Mariel! Y'all should go check out her page and the rest of the participants in the exchange!
