Platinum and Pearl continues to dominate my thoughts this week.
This interior shot has nothing to do with what I want to chat about today except that the shades of this bedroom felt right and illustrated the feel of where I’m going.
Grey, platinum, pearl, simple, elegant, stylish and of today. Words that can not only describe this beautiful space but also my current accessories crush.
I realise that it’s not only my hair and wardrobe that have taken on the platinum and pearl hues, but also my accessories.
For the last month or so I have been wearing 50 shades of grey on my nails.
How nails, like hair, can give you a lift and make you feel well groomed. I am crazy about Playa del Platinum and Power Clutch from Essie. I don’t use gels as these really play havoc with my nails and with Essie polish, my manicure lasts a good week.
The other accessory I am really having fun with is the bar earring. One of those tiny little accessories that give you an up-to-date look, whatever your age. Like the Mise-en-Dior style pearls they are perfect for every day and especially for travelling.
I have been alternating the pearls with the bar earrings, to change things up just a little. The bar earrings are less obvious than the pearls, an almost invisible nod to jewellery and yet I really love them. It means that when I wear a larger drop style earring I really do feel all dressed up.
Nails and earrings; it’s the little things that make all the difference… xv
