This look would be perfect for a first date. It isn't too casual and it isn't too dressed up either. My friends over at Laguna Pearl sent me this white akoya pearl necklace and it is absolutely beautiful. If you've been following my blog for a while you know how much I love pearl jewelry, including necklaces and earrings. I wanted to show you that you can wear pearls with jeans in order to dress them up a bit. You don't have to save your pearl necklace for a fancy occasion with a little black dress. Pearl necklaces work with casual looks just as well. This Laguna Pearl necklace is a steal at under $250. It would be the perfect Valentine's Day gift for any woman. That's a hint to all the men out there who read my blog. Get your lady something special this year. No woman can resist a pearl necklace.
I paired the necklace with a silk sleeveless blouse that has an airy feel to it. I snagged this Joie blouse off The Outnet for under $100. It was quite the steal if I do say so myself. It really goes well with any skinny bottoms and will also work with shorts in the spring and summer. I am wearing a size small in the top. I could have went for an extra small, but I really like the loose and oversized feel of the silk. I found the same top in gray for under $60 here. This top is a classic piece that you will have in your closet for years.
On my legs are the best skinny jeans ever! I really thought I was over skinny jeans until I found these Stella McCartney jeans. They have the best fit. I don't know what it is, but her jeans are amazing. These fit like a glove and they have very little stretch. They make your butt look amazing and your ankles look skinnier. I love the detail in the denim around the ankle and the whiskering. I would say these jeans run true to size. I am wearing a size 26 if you are interested in purchasing them. That is my usual jean size.
I am carrying an old Givenchy clutch. They still sell this clutch in regular black leather as well as python. Mine is croc-embossed leather. I love a large envelope clutch for an evening look. It dresses up the jeans along with the pumps and pearls. I also don't think you need to carry quite as much at night so this clutch is the perfect size for a few essentials. See how I styled the clutch with an Alexander Wang skirt here. On my feet are my Prada patent pumps. These pumps are definitely a classic pair to have in your closet. They don't have a platform, but they are still very comfortable. I always think pointy pumps without a platform look best with skinny jeans and boyfriend jeans. You can see me wearing them with boyfriend jeans and a crop top here. The pumps run true to size.
