Tara Baril is a stay at home mom of 2 girls, Sadie Marie (4) and Emme Grace (1). She’s been married to her childhood sweetheart, Richard, a Lieutenant with The Orlando Fire Department, for 14 years. Her first memory of a pearl necklace is witnessing her grandmother hand down her pearls to Tara’s older sister when she turned 16! From that moment on Pearls have had a special place in Tara’s heart. She wears them when she’s baking as well as changing diapers- who says you have to be formal when you’re wearing pearls?
Here’s what Tara says about her favorite pearl jewelry and being a pearl girl!
“A traditional pearl necklace and earrings have always been my go to pieces but The Pearl Girls have opened my eyes to fun, stylish ways to wear pearls. Pieces like the Black Tie Necklace and the Persian Delight Necklace are on my wish list (hint to the hubby). My friends call me a Southern Belle and Im proud of that. To me, being a Southern Belle means being a strong yet kind woman. We have good manners, self respect and arms filled with love and of course we love our pearls!”
Thank you Tara for sharing your wonderful pictures and life with us!
