Happy 90th birthday Barbara Bush! I am loving Barbara Bush’s Secret … Pearls! As if we didn’t know, right? Granddaughter Jenna Bush Hager interviewed Barbara in honor of her birthday today and asked her about her two most noticeable assets… pearls and white hair.
Barbara said that she quit dying her hair because she wanted to stay active swimming and playing golf and tennis and it was hard to keep her hair from turning funny colors. As for the pearls, she said, “The pearls are to cover the wrinkles… which they no longer do! You can’t wear pearls all over your face.” So now we know her secret! I was happy to see her still decked out in her pearls in the interview:
And by 90 shall we all vow to show off our wrinkles! The interview showed some amazing images of Barbara from over the years. These are images I took directly from the Today show feature:

I love this one! Two Pearl Girls…
And because I am a Mamma, I love pearls on Sesame Street!
People online, who reported on the interview, wrote an article Barbara Bush Turns 90: Her Secret to Aging Gracefully? Pearls. I love what an icon Barbara Bush is for pearls. Politics aside, I love a woman in pearls. And learning more about Barbara Bush in this article was pretty inspiring for me. Former President George W. Bush describes her as fearless and quick-witted, a woman who is not afraid to speak her mind. Now that is someone I can truly look up to.
Happy 90th Barbara Bush! May you always look good in your pearls!
