Pearls and playsuits

Recently, the lovely guys at Jersey Pearl asked me to take part in their ‘rock your pearls’ style challenge. The idea is to rock peals in a unique and interesting way. I actually adore peals and wear two pearl studs in my ears and a single pearl on a necklace every day, I never take them off. Though I love them, I think some people can be a bit hesitant to wear them as they’re quite ‘classic’. That’s why I chose to style them up in a very contemporary way, with a floral printed playsuit, tan platforms and my beloved Alexander Wang bag. The necklace I chose was a long freshwater pearl necklace which can either be worn long or looped around to make it shorter.

    Woo your legs go on for miles here lady! Gorgeous photos. One way I like to wear pearls is to drape them around the neck in a small band and have a longer necklace dropped around your back (I really hope I am explaining this well) – with backless/low back dresses I think this can look fabulous. Great challenge!

    I love pearls. I have a gorgeous pearl bracelet. I love how you wore the necklace. It looks awesome with the playsuit.
