Coco Chanel aside, pearls have always struck me as prissy and old lady-ish, the kind of jewelry you’d wear with a twin set while watching your boring husband play golf at the snotty country club. In other words, not me at all. Pearls (both faux and real) are having a major comeback, but thankfully these 13 pieces are better suited for a night at a rock show than hitting a sale at Lilly Pulitzer.
Trust me, I am in no rush for fall. I love warm summer days wearing little more than a sundress and a pair of sandals, but it;s impossible to ignore the sultry suede shoes popping up in magazines touting fall trend. So many of our favorite must haves from spring,like lace-up heels, laser cut details, and mules are here to stay. Check out 12 pairs of suede shoes that I can’t afford but are taking over my Pinterest shoe board.
