There’s really nothing quite as classic as a string of gorgeous pearls, #amiright? As Jackie O put it, “pearls are always appropriate.” I took that statement to heart, and challenged myself to style this gorgeous Elizabeth lariat necklace from Windsor Avenue in a less conventional way.
Before I break down the look, I want to tell you guys a little bit about the traveling pearls (you can read the full story here.) Inspired by the concept of the famous “Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants,” — only way more chic — Olivia Hollaus, Founder and Creative Director of Windsor Avenue, selected 3 bloggers across the US to wear the same string of pearls. I was lucky enough to be chosen, alongside Holly Boyd from Make Today a Holly Day and Jacyln from Beauty and the Binky.
And — one lucky person can WIN these pearls! Here’s what you have to do…
As I previously mentioned, I wanted to do something less expected, so I decided to start with a no-fail base – a white tee and jeans. The rest of the outfit came together in seconds… I grabbed the pearls, and an extra special piece of outerwear, like this pearl-encrusted navy blazer!
I always like when dressy and casual things are paired together, so instead of dressing it up further with heels, I went with chucks!
Let me know what YOU think of this mix of dressy + casual in the comments and make sure to check out Windsor Avenue for all of your pearl needs 🙂
