Pearls of Wisdom

My Mom always said that it is important to have a nice set of pearls in your accessory wardrobe, because they are classic and can make any outfit classy and sophisticated. My Mom and sister look great it pearls! It is almost as if pearls were made for them, me on the other hand not so much.

Outfit Details:

coat: Lands' End
sweater: H&M
pants: Forever 21
boots: ALDO
long gold necklace: Charming Charlie
clutch: vintage
bracelets: vintage & Bauble Bar
ring: Nordstrom
pearls: gift (Similar earrings) (Similar necklace)

Generally I am not a fan of wearing pearls. I have a beautiful set, but every time I go to wear them I look like a 50s housewife, which is not the end goal that I was aiming for. 

So finally I challenged myself to pair my pearls in a way that I would love wearing them! And I accomplished it! Instead of just wearing them by themselves I used them as layering pieces with my long gold chain from Charming Charlie and then paired the pearl earrings with some others to edge it up a bit. 

I kept the outfit pretty simple with a dash of edginess with my awesome boots from ALDO.
