Summa Time Shoes

I live in sandals for 90% of the summer, but there comes a time when say, it rains, or you just don't want someone stepping on your toes. What's a girl to do? Wear flat espadrilles!! They're summery and comfortable, and frankly, they can't get any cuter!! 

Clockwise from top:
Tory Burch Striped Espadrille, $57,
Toms Blue Leopard Vegan Classics, $54,
Michael Kors Med Closed Toe Espadrille, $69,
Etienne Aigner Urban Striped Espadrille, $30,
Old Navy Espadrilles, $20,
Diane Von Furstenberg Cadence Espadrille, $49,

Take Me Away

I've always had a soft spot for Moroccan inspired design so naturally I fell in love with KiraKira by Suzanne Somersall's jewelry. There is a ton of other items I really like on her website, namely the druzy quartz rings, and Mykonos cuff bracelet, so I urge you to check it out here. But can we just take a second and talk about how amazing the Marrakech diamond ring is?? LOVE.

Smile, Sparkle, Shine

I'm sick of the ho-hum, same old colored eggs where the only way to spice it up is to dip the egg from one color to the next to create something outside of the primary color spectrum ... So I started to think, why not make them really sparkle? When I stumbled upon this DIY on Martha Stewart's website I was sold. What do you think? 

poke a hole in the top and bottom of each 
egg and blow out the contents of the egg

paint with glue, then roll in glitter

find a unique way to display your beautiful, sparkly eggs!

Option 2- Gold Leaf Eggs

Happy Monday!

Hi Loves! This past weekend was so amazing, it was beyond fabulous to see my friends from college and reminisce about our silly inside jokes over pitches of sangria and tapas. Yesterday my beau and I took a scenic drive up the Hudson River into NY and drove around fancy neighborhoods drooling over mansions far beyond our reach.  

I really love this quote and think it's perfect for kicking off a (fingers crossed) sunny week leading to Easter weekend at our shore house in southern NJ.

Google's header today- love!

Friday Favorites

I'm so excited it's Friday. Tonight I'm getting a MUCH NEEDED haircut -I'm so tempted to chop it off, although I'm afraid I'll miss having Marsha Brady moments, swinging it back and forth or brushing it over and over. Tomorrow night I'm meeting up with friends from college that I haven't seen in about 2 years! How time flies! I say bring on the wine and walks down memory lane =)

I digress -Today instead of sharing my favorite things from the week, I'm sharing my favorite blogs- some big, some small. I originally started mine purely as an outlet for my own creativity, but soon found myself addicted to creating content and trying to reach new people! Thanks to all of you who have started following Pretty Little Things, spread the word!

Leather is a girls best friend...

I think I almost cried when I stupidly yanked my FAVORITE black leather jacket from the back of a seat chair and ripped it. DOH!! Clearly I had a brain fart and for a split second thought that the soft, supple leather could handle being roughed around due to my lack of patience (which happens to be on my list of things to work on)

SO although I am going to try to have it repaired by one of NYC's finest, I think it's time for a new one. I would give my right arm, no, maybe a finger? for a Rick Owens fitted leather jacket. Sigh...unfortunately fashion magazines do not pay enough money for one of those, perhaps if I found myself a rich husband HE could buy me one. A girl can dream. 

Here are my top picks (if I had that rich husband), although that Max Azria isn't too far out of my budget... hmm. Thoughts? Suggestions?
