Pearls & Playsuits – The Beach Edition

Pearls & Playsuits – The Beach Edition

Byron Bay Spell Beach-8764

Think pearls are just for Sunday Best? Well it’s time to think again because I’m a huge advocate of teaming our most precious jewellery with everyday favourites.

Precious Pearls.

My most beloved pearls, the ones I’m wearing here, (yes, I have multiple sets of pearls – it’s a bit of an obsession!) are mala prayer beads that were given to me by my beautiful Mama after she travelled to India.

Originally the beads were knotted together by red cotton thread in the traditional Hindu style and when the thread eventually gave way they were repaired by a Tibetan Buddhist monk, here in Australia, who incorporated some of his own blessed beads (the black ones) into the design. They are one of my most precious possessions.

But no matter whether your pearls are a family heirloom, an online splurge or a flea market find – I say it’s time to wear them

SHOP THE LOOK: Look at this beautiful vintage Chanel set and tell me you’re not drooling.

Playful Playsuits.

This Route 66 chambray playsuit by Spell is my current go-to when I can’t decide on what to wear. These are already sold out unfortunately but no matter what you call them – rompers, jumpsuits, playsuits or overalls – I hope you have a pair.

SHOPPING TIP : This chambray set by Phillip Lim is très chic, and I have one very similar to this cotton one by Spell that you might like if you haven’t already turned to the playful side!

Sunshine Days.

Ahhhh, our late Australian Summer is too perfect right now, the water is still warm enough to swim and the sun is shining. We’re spoilt and I am so grateful for it. No matter where in the world you are, I hope you’re taking some time to frolic and play and lose yourself. Which is always better done with a mix of pearls and playsuits, wouldn’t you agree?

love, XO
