girls who wear pearls

women usually either love or hate pearls, but I personally love to be dripping in pretty girly pearls! 
so this outfit is centered around pretty statement pearls! take a peak and how I wore them.

Mixing mediums can be really fun and add interesting aspects to an outfit.
so when I decided to drape myself in pearls this morning, I made sure I added an unexpected edge to the look... a leather skirt and bright pumps!
pearls are great! they make you feel girlie... and like carrie bradshaw!
also, pilling on the pearls, or any statement necklace can be a really easy way to dress up a basic white button up.
the finishing touch, was bundling up in another key basic: a tan trench
 Trench: H&M (2010) (similar). Top: Basic White Button up, J.Crew. Bag: Kate Spade (Old). Pearls: H&M and My Grandmothers. Belt: Gold Braided, J.Crew. Skirt: Pleated Leather, H&M. Earrings: Gold, My moms from the 80's (similar) Shoes: Medugorje Pumps, John Fluevog. Ring: All Wrapped Up Bow Ring, kate Spade (still available in select stores!)
