Erin Cahall's favorite color is turquoise. So the 21-year-old Frederick Community College student perfectly matched her environs on her Valentine's Day date at the National Aquarium Baltimore's "Love Under the Sea Date Night." The Middletown resident displayed her "trendy, comfortable, boho-influenced" style in a turquoise jersey Body Central top with a black stretch grosgrain pencil skirt that featured an asymmetrical ruched seam, also from Body Central. She added a wide black stretch belt from her closet and black leather Bongo ballet flats that she found in her sister's closet. Her brown and turquoise Vera Bradley handbag was a gift, and she doesn't remember where she found her silver wire and turquoise feather earrings. Her turquoise and gold-green woven cashmere shawl was gift from Italy, and she bought her black lava rock seahorse pendant in Hawaii. There's a reason why Cahall gravitates towards the color and to all things sea-themed. "I'm a marine biology major, so I'm always in the ocean or by the ocean. Also, my eyes are blue, so turquoise happens to work [for me]. I love it when girls wear colors that make their eye color pop."
