I’ve been quite addicted to pearls lately. Not the classic strand style of course, but the more ornate, regal-inspired kind. I know a lot of people think pearls will make them look older and boring but that’s not necessarily so. Take a look at some of my personal favorite pieces above for example.
You might recognize some of them from previous outfit posts. I borrowed my mom’s vintage 80’s black and white clip-on earrings for my cousin’s wedding and I secretly kept them. Even if they’re just black and white, I love how they can go with any night or day look; and they really do make a statement. I recently wore them to another cousin’s wedding with a simple black dress and that was really all I needed. I’ve also been religiously (no pun intended) wearing the cross necklace by Kenneth Jay Lane because as I’ve mentioned before I’m having an Elizabethan moment, which brings me to that ruby and pearl ring (another one of my favorite combos). I found it yesterday at Forever 21; it came in a pack of other royal-inspired rings, and I’m obsessed.
Add a little pomp and regalness to your daily and evening outfits also. Be pearly with some of my top picks below.
