For the past 6 months or so, after seeing photos of everyone on the other side of the world be in summer gear, I have been steadily collecting a lot of white, crocheted or lace pieces. I've mentioned it before, my kind of summer is going to be very white and a little boho. I have never been the type to plan ahead what I'm going to be into for the coming season so this is a little surprising to me, nor have I been so committed to still like a certain style after so long. But I have been slowly accumulating pieces that are not too trendy, yes they have been all white and have some sort of lace or crochet detail to them, but I can certainly still see wearing them for a few years.
I also have to admit that Pearls have taken me aback a bit. It was something I was never drawn to wearing, though I have always admired it. I guess Pearls to me scream out elegance and poise and the first thought that pops into my head are Audrey Hepburn and Stepford Wives with their pearl necklaces and matching pearl studs. Not that there is anything wrong with those looks, I can certainly appreciate different styles, but let's face it, that is just not me. But some amazing jewellery designers out there have incorporated it into contemporary pieces I can see myself wearing. For example these Sarina Suriano Pearl pieces from her Omnis Collection can be worn casually or when you need to be dolled up. Accessories to me need to have that versatility to endure longevity in my wardrobe and let's face it, Pearls will NEVER go out style.
Enjoy your weekend!
