I’ve recently taken to wearing a strand of pearls that used to belong to my mother. I believe my sister and I lifted them from her jewelry box when we were just little girls and she never got them back.
I’m not really sure why I’m so taken with them now but they seem to go with everything I want to wear.
From the first time I put them on they made me feel more confident somehow, more sophisticated, like I can take on the world! Kind of like wearing my own personal super-hero cape…only super-hero pearls?? It only makes sense when you think about seeing these timeless gems gracing the necks of affluent women like Margaret Thatcher and Jackie Onassis. The pearl is powerful.
Luckily for us pearls are not just for evening wear and 2 piece suits any more pearls can be worn with a t-shirt and jeans or my personal favourite a button up collar under a sweater or cardigan. I feel that a simple single strand is all a girl needs but some people love to layer ’em up!
Here are some of my favourite pearlesque looks!
