Jenny and I went for a spot of light shopping and lunch yesterday, to mark the last days of good, sunny weather. I loved Jenny’s outfit; most of it she already owned, but the scarf ($40 at Ann Taylor) and earrings ($7 at Target) were purchased after she got her Make It Real style prescription.
This is a great example of how we can use a lot of the items in our existing wardrobe to transition into a new style. If you have a good eye for the basics like Jenny does, using them in new combinations and investing in interesting, statement-making accessories is a great way to bridge into your new style (let a alone a good way to make that style transition easy on your wallet!) So, before you go out to buy new things, take good stock of your closet – you may be surprised by how much of it is still wearable.
We stopped by Sephora to pick up a couple of things:
Lovely, no? Jenny thinks it’s too much mascara; I think it’s perfect. What say you, internet?
I think Jenny looks terrific. If I can get some results like hers I would be delighted.

Thanks Pat. Well, it’s all about the advice, I must say!
