Pearls + Etsy = Cute!

Diamonds are a girls best friend? No way! This girl loves her pearls! Thanks to the beautiful high quality Chinese freshwater pearls that are available now, I've managed to amass a nice little collection of pearl jewelry.

I have a lovely opera length strand of pearls, but I sometimes find it too dressy for every day wear. What's a girl to do? Double it up & add a fun crotchet brooch!



I love how this instantly makes the strand look casual & vintage-y.

It's easy to hear the word "brooch" & immediately think "grandma", but they are really versatile & a lot of fun to play around with. There is so much more to do with brooches than just pinning them to your lapel. I got the snazzy little number in my pictures from missindie on etsy. Check out all the adorable styles she has.

Have a wonderful Friday & enjoy your weekend!

My friend Amanda used to wear pearls a lot, she could dress just a regular strand down some how...she would wear them with everything.
