mood pearls

this outfit strikes me as something  my grandma would have worn. i love that mixing patterns can put a fresh twist on a vintage look.

speaking of vintage, my mom is the sweetest. she read my post about how i love the look of layered pearls and let me borrow all of hers, as well as my grandma’s and great grandma’s. this bracelet and set of earings were my great grandma’s. i think they’re absolutely gorgeous, but the fact that they’ve been passed down for generations makes them even more special.

it’s funny, but just putting them on changed my mood. do you have pieces of clothing or accessories that make you feel special and beautiful every time you wear them? when this year is over, investing in those types of pieces is what i’ll focus on. no more buying something just because it’s trendy or i want it. too often those buys end up being unflattering and make their way out of my closet before long.

it is definitely hard, but i love the changes this year is bringing about in my mind.

    Ooh, such a pretty bracelet! My mom just brought over several bracelets for me to borrow indefinitely! 4 cuff bracelets and a pearl one :)

      That’s so exciting! Cuff bracelets may be my weakness… :)
