Friday Glam

Friday glam with classy girls wear pearls, note to self, chocolate truffle tart, big earrings

Just a few little things I’m thinking today to add a little glam to the end of a long week:

Have you escaped into the fun preppy world of Classy Girls Wear Pearls yet? If not, it’s time. If only for these beautiful mint green and gold bow pumps.

What to bake this weekend? Maybe a rich chocolate truffle tart to eat while watching Downton and Girls (both fitting I think).

My friend Sarah launched a fab new print shop! I seriously can’t pick a favorite design. Love them all!

I’m shopping for an inaugural ball dress this weekend, but I can’t forget hair and accessories! I love this combo of big sparkly earrings and a pony with major volume.
