pretty things volume 01

Fri-yay friends! I am so ready! Had such a great week though, Martin & I attended the men's Adidas Originals / Wings & Horns SS17 launch (you can see a photo of us here). Then I'm hosting my in-laws for dinner later today. Yay! As for today's post? Lately, my Pinterest / desktop is filled with pretty things, and so naturally, I thought I'd share bits of what's inspiring me and start a new monthly feature. I've been tossing around a few more ideas for new content and I'm excited to start sharing + hearing your feedback! Also, I've included a high & low link for each item, because while splurges are fun, staying on budget is important too!

NO. 1 Is there anything prettier than a scalloped suit?! Our pool is opening in less than a month, and you can bet, I'll be poolside all summer long! The suit I've featured above is from Mott Maillot (high) and I found a near identical one from Rosegal (low) for a killer deal! 

NO. 2 I'm such a huge fan of Aerin Lauder and can't wait to pick up her body cream as well as the Regent Garden candle. Interestingly it's inspired by Regent Park, in London, formerly the hunting ground of Henry VIII and now one of the most famous Royal Parks in the city. Love!

NO. 3 I can never say no to an adorable summer tote, the one above is from Hat Attack (high) and I also found this adorable one (low) from TJ Maxx.

NO. 4 Oooh, pom-pom sandals (high), SO have my heart. I'd love to wear mine with a chignon, breezy peplum tank and cropped skinny jeans for a patio dinner / date night! So darn pretty!! Plus, here's a slightly more affordable pair (low) too! 

NO. 5 My goal for this spring & summer? Wear more accessories! I have so many beautiful pieces and I NEVER wear them. Really hoping to change that! Plus love these mini drops from Bauble Bar and the price point is fab!
