Who is ready for more early 1900's goodness? I love it all.
Often on the show (and in that time period) you would see a nice, long strand of pearls. We're talking super long- the longer the better. I went to Goodwill and got this massive strand for $1.99, which I thought was extremely reasonable. Based on the massive quantity available, it's safe to say that you would have luck getting a long strand at a second hand shop as well, but these are also available online.
Looking at these pictures, I'm suddenly reminded of playing 'dress up' as a girl. Did anyone else wear excessively over sized clothes, heels + jewelry? I don't know if the necklaces were this long in those days or if they just *seemed* that long on my 6 year old frame. Who knows. On to the tutorial! If you've got a strand like this (or will be picking one up), here are 7 different ways to wear it and channel your inner DAS (Downton Abbey Style). Some are a few decades more modern than others.

I love pearls. Lets just get it out there. My mom has been giving me lovely strands (and my grandma, too!) since I was a little girl, but I rarely have the opportunity to wear them. I need to make more of a habit out of it. To be honest, I often skip jewelry in general (including my wedding band- which is why I dig the tattoo). I love jewelry, it's just a matter of laziness.
Anyway- what's up with September weather? In the morning... frigid. In the afternoon... sweltering hot lava raining from the sky. I do not understand.
I hope you're having a good week, all the best and as always, thanks for reading!
