(ABOVE) I love interesting crossbodies.  This one, from J. McLaughlin several seasons ago, doubles as a petite and ladylike top-handle bag.

I love how just tossing a sweater over my shoulders, wearing a more slim rather than loose-fitting tee, and slipping on flats with pointed, instead of rounded, toes dresses up this fairly casual outfit.  Little touches say so much. ~Janis Lyn Johnson

    A beautiful look. Thank you for all the ideas on this blog. I shop at Talbots in Toronto, Canada and you help me put various items in a much better style.
