Beauty & Style with Jill {week IV}

Welcome back to my weekly column, where I share my favorite ensembles from the prior week to help you create new looks with all the clothes you already own.

I love putting new pieces together with items I have owned for years.  Like these brown boots!

I am in love with this marsala skirt.  You can see it with another look in the fashion tips below.

I’m also going to show you how one very fun and inexpensive statement necklace can be

worn with several different looks.

Don’t mind the shadows on me. Remember my children are taking these photos. HA! 

It might be time to set up my tripod and use the remote.

#2 Trend Alert – Get Ready to BLUSH!

All of these can be found at Payless Shoes



I might try to pull this next look off.  I love all the color with a classic blush/nude shoe.

However, I will be using this outfit to inspire me to mix patterns and textures.

Animal prints remain a hot item to wear for Spring.
