ACCESSORIES REPORT: Grandma’s Pearls

Every girl knows the saying “diamonds are a girl’s best friend,” but recently I have seen diamonds being replaced with pearls galore. Pearl accessories and clothing being incrusted with pearl beads are just a few pieces I’ve seen this summer. The classic pearl stud earring is now becoming some college girl’s everyday go-to earrings. The pearl adds a bit of class to every outfit and can give an allusion of an outfit being dressier than it really is.

I am loving this printed romper this Fashionista is wearing. It is an easy way to look dressy and feel extremely comfortable. Every Fashionista should own a romper for those days when you don’t want to get dressed up but you have to. This Fashionista pairs the perfect closed toed TOMS-looking shoe with this romper. TOMS are a versatile shoe that can be worn in any season with jeans, shorts or dressy attire.

This adorable fabric-chained pearl necklace is the main accessory that ties the whole outfit together. The fabric in the necklace matches perfectly with the floral print in the romper and adds a little pop of pearls. When wearing a print try and accessorize with the color that there is less of in the print. For example in this case the off white or cream color is the underlying color so you would accessorize with that, not the blue. That way your outfit doesn’t look so matchy matchy.

These subtle pearls are the perfect everyday earrings. They are the perfect size to go along with this chunky necklace. When wearing a big piece like this necklace you always want to go with more of a smaller earring or something subtle. You can even go with no earrings, but in my case I cannot walk out of the house without a pair in my ears. You can say I have an accessorizing addiction.

These stackable bracelets add a little color pop to this outfit as well with the pastel pink that is in the romper. Adding a couple of bracelets to any outfit is always a good idea if you don’t wear a watch or you need a small accessory to tie into other bigger pieces.

This summer you may not necessarily want to wear your grandma’s pearls but pearls are IN! Don’t be afraid to trade in your diamonds for the season and rock the pearls.

Spotted: The camilla and marc resort 2014 collection has some bold floral prints that would go perfectly with some pearls.
