Friday Favorites

I have been obsessing over these espadrilles since I found them on Pinterest a few days ago.  They are so cute and so perfect for summer.  I'm also thinking that they would be super comfy and that I need to get myself a pair!  They also happen to be on sale right now so I think it's meant to be!

Favorite Sweet Treat Pink and Gold Cactus Cake
The lovely ladies over at Best Friends for Frosting created this ridiculously cute cake that I am loving!  This cake would be great for anyone celebrating a summer birthday (who loves pink of course) or for a summer party, BBQ, etc.  For the instructions on how to make one for yourself check out this post.

Favorite Celebrity Look Lily Donaldson in Dior at Loveless premiere in Cannes, France
I loved this look that Lily Donaldson is wearing at the Cannes Film Festival the minute I saw it.  It's such a feminine look, which is always a favorite of mine.  I'm also really loving how she looks like a chic French ballerina.  I definitely want to find a (less sheer) version of this dress next time I have an event to go to!

This adorable backpack is from Lauren Conrad's latest LC Lauren Conrad Handbag Collection at Kohl's.  I've been seeing cute little backpack handbags like this everywhere recently, which has left me wanting one.  This sweet little backpack also happens to be in my favorite color, which is what really left me swooning! (Bonus: It's also on sale right now too!)

Favorite DIY Abstract Artwork
I have been really big into abstract art lately so it's no surprise that I pinned this tutorial the minute I saw it.  Fran over at Fall for DIY shares how to make your own painting, just like this, here.  I haven't painted in forever, but next time I'm in the mood to I want to make an abstract piece to go with the gallery wall I've been planning for my bedroom!

  1. That cactus cake is so adorable and I really like that art. :)

  2. OH MY WORD, those Tory flats!

  3. That art is gorgeous! I don't know if I can DIY that, but I'm going to check it out for sure! Thanks for sharing!

  4. Omg I really want those Tory espadrilles although I want them in navy (don't even know if that's a thing). I also love the diy art though I'm sure mine wouldn't turn out looking as chic.

  5. So many great picks! I'm loving that cactus cake - so adorable. And those Tory Burch shoes are amazing!

  6. That abstract art is BEAUTIFUL! I need a bigger piece for my stairwell and I'm thinking that might just be a winner :)

  8. While everything is super pretty, those shoes in the first picture are to die for!
