Spring Is Right Around the Corner

Hi, everyone!

It’s Valentine’s Day, and we haven’t even experienced our winter weather yet here in Southwest Florida. In clothing stores, however, it’s already looking like spring. So, I recently stopped by Lilly Pulitzer to try on some items. It always feels like summer when I’m in Lilly Land!

It was love at first site with the salmon half-zip popover, and I’m so happy I bought it. It goes with my shorts, jeans, and leggings, and looks great layered or worn on its own. The material is  a soft sweatshirt-like cotton, but the popover is more refined than a typical sweatshirt; it has a collar and a pretty gold, jewelry-quality zipper.

I tried on six other outfits, too. All seven looks are below, along with my own outfit that I wore that day.

Changing to the subject of makeup, 100% Pure was kind enough to send me a new lipstick to sample from their Cocoa Butter Semi-Matte Lipstick line. To see closeups of me wearing it in this post (and details about all my makeup/moisturizers), scroll to the bottom of this page. The lipstick color I’m wearing is sonora. It’s so pretty! It’s an orange-red, opaque, long-wearing formula, and it goes with both pinks and peaches.

Hope you’re having a sweet Tuesday.

P.S. Isn’t the wallpaper in the Lilly Pulitzer dressing room adorable? I love the round rug, too. <3

    Of course, you look beautiful as usual in all of these!
    No Lily P store close to my location but love the look of the beach linen pant. Good for me that I know how to sew a simple pant like these. Thanks for the inspiration and Happy Valentine’s Day!

    Hi, I’m new to your blog but must say that I am really enjoying going back to see the talks that I have missed. I do have a question about your makeup. I too am looking for more natural products, but do you feel like you have to keep the products for a shorter period of time due to the lack of preservatives?

    • JLJ February 23, 2017 at 12:48 pm - Reply

      Hi, Tami! Thank you so much for visiting my blog and for your great question! I’ve been buying only natural cosmetics for the last year and a half, and thus far everything is still the same consistency, color, and smell as when I first bought the items. From what I understand, the natural cosmetics I’ve shown have natural preservatives, rather than synthetic or harmful chemicals. They are more expensive than drugstore cosmetics, but I’m so much happier with the ingredients of the natural brands, and they perform just as well. ~Janis

    This lip and check tint is so red on pictures but not on you,wonderful color on you.About clothes,kelly ankle skinny pant so pretty and cool but some pants patterned show the human legs short isn’t it? especially large patterns.You should definitely buy skipper solid popover top,very beautiful lovely janis,and you should definitely buy grey vandy top,beach pant.Very beautiful on you.Gray color suits you very well.You always very chich lady.Upload more vlog please.Happy days~

      About patterns on pants possibly making legs look shorter….I tend to agree with you if the pattern is too large. But I do love patterns on skinny jeans. They have several different patterns in these jeans at Lilly Pulitzer. I like some better than others. This just happened to be the pair they had in my size in the store that day. About the lip and cheek tint color….It’s interesting how lipsticks and also blushes can look so different in the product photos, isn’t it? It’s why I like to show them on my videos and in my posts, so people can see they aren’t always exactly like they look at the company’s website. The cranberry lip and cheek tint can be more red if you apply more. I just didn’t build it up to be that dark. About the Pullover….I ended up buying the Skipper pullover because I love, love the color! I also liked the gray Vandy top — I do like wearing gray so much! — but I decided I had enough gray t-shirts, so I didn’t get it. Thank you so much for visiting my blog again, Rose! Hugs from Florida ~ Janis

    Sometimes I watched your old videos,if you do not have a new video,I watched the tommy bahama video from you with your pretty lady gail,Oh “Hello Gail youre so sweet like janis” 🙂
    Lovely store but super expensive right?
    I watched great salads and hungered lol , sometimes you’re pouring sauce,you bring it your home? great idea!but wondering why?because places you eat are very good quality,I think that the sauces are great.Happy Days~

    • JLJ February 23, 2017 at 1:28 pm - Reply

      Hi, Rose! Yes, Tommy Bahama clothing is a bit pricey. It’s fun to find pretty things there on sale! I always bring a salad dressing when I eat out, because I never know the ingredients in a restaurant’s dressing, and I stay away from preservatives, dairy, sugar — all of which can be in a restaurant dressing. So I make my own with 3 Tablespoons Organic Olive Oil, 3 Tablespoons Organic Apple Cider Vinegar, 12 Grindings of Black Organic Pepper, and 4 Pinches of Pink Himalayan salt. It’s a simple recipe, but I really like it! Thank you for visiting my blog again and thank you so much for re-watching some of my other videos. You are so sweet!! Hope you’re having a happy day, too!! ~ Janis
