Pretty in Pearls

Shirt, Skirt, Vest, Pearls: BCBG; Shoes: Marc Fisher; Bag: H&M; Belt; Target; Tights: Hue; Earrings: Faux Chanel found at a local boutique; Ring: Gifted (Judith Jack)
If diamonds are a girl's best friend, pearls are like your great grandmother; timeless and wise.  They epitomize the essence of class and beauty when it comes to style.  Women have adorned themselves with these rare jewels found deep in the ocean for thousands of years.  Audrey Hepburn, Jackie O., Grace Kelley, Marilyn Monroe and Carrie Bradshaw all made the pearl necklace iconic in the 20th Century.  And the pearl's timelessness has carried on to the 21st century to be just as meaningful.  Every time I slip a strand around my neck, I can't help but to accessorize it with my favorite pink lipstick.  Pearls just make me feel pretty.  So pretty, that I don't want to take them off.  I may just sleep in them tonight.

Pretty pretty pretty! I never really liked pearls, not for myself at least. But that doesn't mean that I can't admire how they complete an outfit. Looks great!

I love this outfit.
I agree with you 100% about pearls, but I just never seem to be able to pull them off.
Guess I will have to stick with diamonds... oh and win the lottery.

I agree pearls are timeless pieces that will NEVER go out of style, when I turned 15 my father gave me a gorgeous pearls necklace and it's been my favorite, they are magical once I put it on, I feel so ladylike! ... The whole outfit is so divine, you look so sophisticated and chic! Love it!
