All The Pearls, S’il Vous Plait

While “diamonds are a girl’s best friend”, pearls will forever have a special place in my heart. And this summer season, they reigned supreme on all forms of clothing – from dresses and shorts to tops and even sandals.

I picked up this pearl embellished blouse from Zara. It goes great with blue denim jeans, but I thought I’d dress it up by layering it atop a black slip dress and sandals.

I love this combination, simply because it’s easy for work yet dressy enough to wear to an industry event or dinner in the evening. And the flared sleeves add the finishing touch that’s flirty yet sophisticated.
