Dress: Ann Taylor (bought last spring)
Pearls: Nordstrom Anniversary Sale (two different necklaces)
I had a major pearl kick a couple years ago (seen here and through much of '06 and '07). Lately I haven't felt like a pearl sort of person. Seemed too… obvious. Almost like a costume. Then I saw these champagne-colored pearls at the Nordstrom sale and though it was a nice alternative to the brighter pearls in my stash. I thought they would also look lovely mixed with gold chains, and would really go well with the camel, tweed, and warm feminine looks that are showing up for this fall. Almost makes me yearn for days where I can wear a fuzzy sweater!
