Polished pearls

This is the outfit I wore to my Thanksgiving feast, which my Brother and his wife hosted at their house in Massachusetts. I ventured out into the freezing cold to check out the lake at the end of their street and snap some outfit photos before I was too full to move.

LydellNYC has a fabulous new holiday collection, and they were kind enough to share a few pieces with me. I decided on pearl baubles, but there are plenty of other gems; take a look if you have a chance. You don't have to be an accessory addict like me to appreciate how a statement earring can totally elevate a look!

Plus everything at LydellNYC is 40% off today!

P.S. I would also like to invite you all to participate in my Holiday Card exchange! I love buying cards but don't have too many people to send to, so I started the exchange a couple years ago and I just love it. If you would like to participate, simply send me an email [chiclyddie@gmail.com] with your mailing address, I'll reply with mine, and we will send each other cards!

What a beautiful set of earrings you have there Miss Lydia. I love the dress and cardigan as well. Glad it wasn't too freezing yet to take these pretty photos by the lake!

Cee said...

What a stunnnig place your brother and sister-in-law live! I haven't visited much of the eastern US and seeing the locations of your photos always makes me want to change that. And speaking of change - you wore a belt to a Thanksgiving meal? You brave, brave woman. I know for a fact I would have been taking this outfit apart after dinner to make room for everything I had eaten. You do look absolutely lovely, though. Your gingham dress is too pretty! I'm having visions of wearing it in Paris :)
xox,

Elegance and Mommyhood said...

Your gingham dress and cardigan are both awesome, so girly and perfect for you. They would be in my liking, too. All those jewels are so pretty too. Love the earrings & bracelet. They remind me so much of the pretty pearl & black beaded jewelry by White House Black Market. You certainly looked Lovely for Thanksgiving.

I would love to hear your thoughts on my latest outfits. Especially today I got on a Fancy LBD. Since you love Dressy Looks I'd love to see what you think of it. Thank you.

What a beautiful dress, it has a Kate Spade vibe.
The pearl earrings are so vintage like, that i like them.
I have to pass on the cards... here the mail does not work. I had a postal box a few years ago but then just stopped paying for it as everything got lost or arrived late.
