Pretty Girls Wear Pearls

With Summer days ticking away we must make sure that we take advantage of all the fun runway summer trends. A runway trend this summer are pearls. Yes I said pearls! Pearls are not normally associated with the runway but often linked to weddings or grandmothers. I have even been guilty of saving my good pearls for business meetings, church, or weddings. Jason Wu add pearl accents stiletto's at his runway show and showed that pearls can also bee worn with a look that has both edge and sex appeal.

This runway trend inspired me to find ways I would be able to incorporate pearls into some everyday looks that would be both edgy and sexy.

Ear Par-taaaayyyy!

So I have been MIA but for a good reason! In my last post I mentioned not feeling well and it turns out that I have since battled my way through 9 months of sickness and welcomed my first child into the world! It has been the best life changing experience that I wouldn't change for the world. That being said, my blogging had to take a back seat while I got use to my new life and while everyday is something new I think that I am ready to get back to a few passions of mine jewels, fashion, and writing.
   My new obsession has to be the ear cuff. While I have been stock piling different cuffs for over a year now the trend has grown and there are so many more options to choose from. This is a relief for me because a year ago when I decided to get a couple they were hard to find and the options were limited once you found a place to purchase them. Here are a few of my favorites finds!

For my jewels where less is more:

Gold Ear Cuff
Flower Chain Rhinestone Ear Cuff

And now for my jewels were more is more!
