Pearls – classic timeless style. They go with everything.

Looking into the jewellery trays that I bought for the room renovation, I love looking at my collection of pearls. They go with literally anything I wear, even on a dress down day. In fact, I think pearls can look at their best worn with just a plain T and jeans.

The weather has been really mild for January here in Essex. Windy and wet but the temperatures have reached double figures! I’d much rather be wearing a blazer than a heavy coat any day.

Plus I’m really enjoying wearing the bargain trousers from Reiss that I scooped up quickly before they all sold out. You have to keep your finger on the pulse for the Reiss sale. It’s one of my favourite brands at the moment and a little pricey for me so I wait for the sales, There are still some great items on their now and I’m so tempted! But I have to be a good girl. I have a house to renovate.

enough about the outfit. I’m excited to share my new pearls!

I’m sharing my new addition to my pearl collection. The Cirque silver and pearl Lariat necklace is a really stunning piece of jewellery. The clever design means you can wear it many ways, and you can see on the website all the how too’s. I’ve chosen to wear mine with the pearl drop just through the hoop.

Pearls, the classic kind, a string of pearls should be in every woman’s wardrobe in my book, but what I love about Claudia’s brand are the modern designs. Pearls brought right up to date that will pair alongside the most fashionable of us all.

The Abacus Silver Pearl Friendship Bracelet

I have featured these Abacus Friendship bracelets on the blog before, in one of my weekly edits. I’m wearing these a lot. The two paired together look great I think.

I’d like to also give a mention to the blazer. I’ve worn this one so much. It’s from Sumissura. A brand where you can have all your clothing made to measure. The cut and finish of this blazer are brilliant and it’s not expensive either. You can catch the post about the Sumissura brand here

There are some beautiful summer coloured friendship bracelets over on Claudia’s site on sale for a mere £28.00 at the moment. I love the Blue and Silver!

It’s not long until the sky blackens and the winds roar!

Just look at that Black sky rolling in! The unforgivable winds make it so hard to get any good photos! We have to quickly pack away before we get a soaking.

Not before I share my most worn pearl earrings though. I love these Ear Jackets. You can wear them just as pearl studs too. I’m wearing the Pink pearl to match the Lariat necklace. I don’t know why but I always go for the pink pearl over the white? I just love the softness of the colour.

I’d like to thank Claudia for kindly gifting me the gorgeous Lariat necklace. Do pop over and have a look at all the gorgeous pearls. Valentine’s day is coming up! Oh, and there’s a great sale on too!

    I love pearls every now and then. This necklace is so pretty, I love the design of it and it really could work dressed up or down. I am loving those tie waist trousers you have on!

    That next to last picture with the stormy sky… I love it. I have few items with fresh water pearls that I wear but should pull out the pieces that were my grandmothers.

      Definitely pull them out! Your grandmother would want you to wear them and they are most probably gorgeous! xx

    This is such a classically beautiful outfit, Laurie! I love the all the neutral shades together with the subtle plaid of your blazer. And your pearls are gorgeous. The lariat style necklace is a really unique spin on pearls. Thanks for linking up.

      I’m with you on that Gail. I wear my pearls so often and I feel mixing them with other jewellery works well today now too. Frowned upon years ago! xx

    We had temps in the double figures, but with rain and wind, as well. Now it’s a lot colder, but with some sunshine, and I know which one I prefer! That pearl necklace is gorgeously understated yet chic. The blazer is gorgeous too, and I’m swooning over that bag! xxx

      I can’t wait for lighter days and nicer weather Ann. The bag was a bargain find from Top Shop xx

  14. January 21, 2020 / 4:45 pm

    Gorgeous neutral look Laurie! I did check ou the Reiss sale and loved the clothes! I am saving for a few things for the house, so had to pass, but I love your trousers! The pearl necklace is so elegant and pretty! Apparently Harry Styles has been in the limelight showing off his pearls with all his looks, hahah!
    I do love pearls even more when worn in a nontraditional fashion. Your bag is fab!!
    thanks for linking!

      Thanks Jess. I’ve been wearing the necklace a lot. It works with so much. Keep your eyes peeled on the Reiss site! xx

    Laurie, you look absolutely gorgeous in this outfit. The blazer is utter perfection and the colour is so you! The trousers too. But it’s the pearls that are the star, right? I love pearls, although I don’t wear them that often. I really ought to start wearing them a bit more!

    I love this necklace Laurie. I am a huge fan of Claudia’s range too, and have a few bits. Not this necklace though so may have to have a little peruse……
