ZOE CHICCO 14K Gold Pearl & Diamond Bypass Ring

Like Prince sang, “If I gave you diamonds and pearls, would you be a happy boy or a girl??”—the answer to that question is a resounding YES! Growing up, I always saw my grandmother in her statement pearls. Whether it was a pair of stud earrings, a doubled up strand around her neck, or a dainty ring, she made sure to regularly incorporate them into her accessory rotation.

 Back in the day women used to reserve their pearls for a special occasion or when they wanted to feel pulled together and proper. But now, pearls seem to be popping up in a casual, louche way that screams Jane Birkin cool and preppy all at the same time. There are pearl adorned hair clips, bags, shoes, even this sexy 70s-esque tank from Donni.

Designers like Pearl Collective and State Property have modernized an otherwise staid classic by adding spikes and unique settings to toughen it up. Maya Brenner and Zoe Chicco have added their own twists too and I love these feminine earrings and rings that can be worn everyday. 

STATE PROPERTY Inversion Earrings

Pearls add texture and depth to that stack of fine gold chains that I know you wear everyday so I encourage you to look in your jewelry box, find your strand from 8thgrade, and give it a whirl!

Knock Around Togs

Even if I am spending most of my time at home and on the couch (nursing my hip back to health after surgery), I still like to feel like I have a modicum of style. It may sound super basic, but it definitely lifts my spirits to wear things that are cheerful and chic. That said, I have found a few good bets that help elevate my casual and take my “knock around togs” (what I call my weekend wardrobe) to a new level. For my knock-around wear during the fall I find myself sticking to a sportier (Spice) theme and find that playful and color-centric separates work best.

Chatting with Erin Sachse of Eriness Jewelry

Throughout her career, Erin Sachse of Eriness jewelry has imbued her work with meaning vis-à-vis symbols and small icons. Her most recent symbolic iterations include her “Resist” and “Ladybug” collections. Eriness’ “Resist” is most definitely a range that is inspired-by and tailor-made for these times, and the Ladybug collection is an homage to Erin’s late mother and its path into existence includes a vivid dream and real touchstones from the sky and beyond.

Matchy Matchy

With very few places to go, it’s difficult to commit the brain power and big styling energy into figuring out a legit ensemble. However, on the flip side, it is also a drag to feel and look sloppy—I am really trying to find that balance. A solution to this conundrum is embracing the matching set. It goes beyond simply wearing a monochromatic look.
