holding onto summer pieces

As much as I love Fall, there are still a few pieces that I can’t part ways with just yet. And then there are these Club Monaco pants.

About two weeks ago, I picked up these Club Monaco pants, even though I was well aware I wouldn’t be able to get a ton of wear out of them (until next year).  But I loved them so much, and fun pants have been my thing lately on the blog – paisley pants, edgy floral pants, wide legged cropped pants, and striped trousers. I could have easily paired it with a sweater to make it a more seasonally appropriate look, but I just wasn’t ready to let go of my off the shoulder top yet…and it happened to look the best with these pants. And another little added item…

If you haven’t noticed, I’m not the best at accessorizing – actually I’m the worst, which is a major blogger faux pas because I have no #armcandy. But there’s one thing I really do love…earrings.

So when a company called The Pearl Source sent me some new earrings, I put them on and didn’t take them off.

When I was going through my J.Crew phase, I wore a lot of pearl necklaces, but never earrings, even though I’ve always wanted a pair. This pair goes so well with my look – there’s something so feminine about pearls paired with florals! They’re the perfect size for my unusually small ears, and I just know I’ll wear them just as much as I wear my diamond studs, which is huge for me!

 Editor’s Note: I might have ripped the packaging opened so fast like it was Christmas morning. Oops.

If you (or someone you know) are a big fan of pearls, I highly recommend The Pearl Source. The quality of their peals are unbelievable. They sell high quality pearls, but buy directly from the pearls’ country of origin (a.k.a no mark up). Another awesome thing about The Pearl Source? They’re a family business, how cool is that?

    Love the pants! Outfit would look cute with a denim jacket if it gets cooler! Earrings are so simple but stunning.
