Girl with a Pearl Shirt

Pearl jewelry is classy and timeless, but beyond accessories, pearl embellishments anywhere and everywhere have definitely been a front-and-center trend this season! I like that this modernized oxford shirt has one large pearl detail on each sleeve cuff.

I was in Washington D.C. a couple weekends ago and wore this outfit for a day of visiting museums, memorials, and monuments. We walked over 8 miles this day, so comfortable footwear was a must. I like the low-profile, slip-on version of these classic Converse sneakers as they're sleeker. Yet, they can also make something more formal, like a slip dress, look cooler and more daytime appropriate.

We got to D.C. about a week or two too late for peak cherry blossom season. The plus side is that Tidal Basin, where people typically go to admire the pink blooms, was completely empty. We were able to find some trees that still had cherry blossoms though, so we rested in the park for a little bit from all our walking!
