Summer Wedding Season

Jun 28, 2018

With the 4th of July right around the corner, summer wedding season is in full swing. I have always found there to be so much more variety in dressing for a summer wedding than a winter wedding. In the fall and winter I almost always opt for a black or jeweled tone dress in emerald or navy with costume jewelry to complete the look.  In the summer, dress options are endless.

Welcome Home

Jun 21, 2018
Welcome to the new and improved Classy Girls Wear Pearls — RIP Blogger. I finally made the switch to WordPress. This transition comes at a very different stage of my life from when I first started blogging over 6 years ago. My family has grown, our company has grown, and life has become a whole lot busier. 

Friday Finds: New England Edition

1. Earrings 2. Sweater 3. Belt // 4. Shorts 5. Bag 6. Book // 7. Sailor Bracelet 8. Dress 9. Rope Sandals

Later today Kiel, Harry, and I  are heading to Kennebunkport for the weekend.  I’m really excited to return — it’s been a couple of years since our last visit. As I was putting together this Friday Finds edition I was inspired by our destination. Preppy nautical clothing will always hold a special place in my heart. If it has an anchor, lobster, stripes, or a sailboat I can’t resist it.

Weekend on the Lake

Jun 7, 2018

I live for our our weekends on the lake. It’s become a habit to keep my phone on the charger in my bedroom while we are relaxing outdoors. For me it’s the best way to slow down time and live fully in the moment. There are very few opportunities during the week to do this and I cherish these simpler times watching Bennie swim (she loves the water more than anything), enjoying a glass of wine at sunset, or seeing Harry laugh at a funny face his dad made.

Weekend Reading

Book: Love and Ruin by Paula McLain

Ernest Hemingway and his third wife Martha Gellhorn will be on my mind for weeks to come. Over the weekend I finished reading Love & Ruin by Paula McLain and I haven’t been able to stop thinking about the extraordinary characters and events she has brought to life in this latest novel. I’ve spent the past couple of weeks obsessively googling Hemingway, Gellhorn, and WWII. 

While Hemingway’s exploits and literary fame are legendary, I knew very little about Martha Gellhorn before starting this book.
