Fresh Ways to Wear Pearls

Purse and Pearls

Dressing Up with Pearls

Both Kristin and I love dressing up and accessorizing. And whether it’s for a formal evening event, or daytime casual, pearls can be the perfect finishing touch. We thought it would be fun to show you how we each style pearls with two different ways to wear pearls.

For my outfit, I decided to go the dressy route. My husband has an upcoming awards gala that will feature some of his work and I am so proud and excited that I get to be his date. Wanting to look the part, I decided it was time for some new formal wear and found this cocktail dress. I love its flirty length. It’s so fabulous for a night filled with dancing and fun. This freshwater pearl bracelet from The Pearl Source was a great way to complete my classic look, along with some red nails of course. I can never resist a flaming red mani!

And the pearls look lovely right alongside one of my favorite gold clutches. I definitely felt pulled together in this ensemble and ready to celebrate!

Daytime Outfit with Pearls

For Kristin’s fun, yet decidedly more casual daytime look, she paired a pair of  freshwater pearl stud earrings with a graphic print sheath dress, metallic sandals and bangles. As you can see, pearls can be so versatile. Whether you’re going for full on cocktail attire like me or brunch with the girls, you can count on pearls to add a touch of elegance to your style!

    I like pearls. They give you that classic beauty edge. My sister got married in Hawaii, and she wore pearls for her wedding. Great post.

    The Dresses are really nice. I especially liked the printed Coral Dress and the way you mixed things up with the Pearls

    They’re sure pretty. I haven’t had a pair of pearls in my whole life. I should really fix that… yes? I can’t decide which I’d like most, I think the bracelet. 🙂
