Let’s talk about beets shall we? Do you like beets? I LOVE them. Have you ever had pickled beets? MMMMMmmmmmm!!! When I saw this “Beet it” tote on Modcloth I had to have it. It is the perfect mix of tote and nice purse. I have been wearing it around doing errands and thinking of beets ever since.

I got this dress from Forever 21 last summer and all winter I’ve wondered whether it was a good purchase or not. I tired it on the other day again and decided I love it. So easy and comfortable. Come on warm weather, I am rooting for you.


Dress: Forever 21 (similar)
Jean Jacket: J.Crew (similar)

Beet Tote: c/o Modcloth

  1. you look so so adorable! and i love that bag!

  2. Not used to seeing you in a full length dress or skirt, it really suits you Jen. You look like you’re 10 feet tall – that’s a good thing. πŸ™‚


  3. I love this outfit!!

  4. I live (and teach) right on the edge of Amish country….which means BULK FOOD STORES. You can get huuuge jars of pickled beets for super cheap and they are amazing.

  5. You look so pretty in this outfit. The earrings add a feminine touch, the jacket add a casual feel, and the tote is cute and practical. Very chic!

  6. Ok, beets are the best! I’m a huge fan and just bought my first jar of pickled ones today (I usually have then on Christmas or at the sugar shack!). Then I also started jogging today and thought: I’m having a very Jenlovekev day today!

    I adore maxi dresses on you, you look so statuesque and beautiful πŸ™‚

    Have a nice long week-end Jen!

    beets have become a joke around my house because i insist i don’t care for them even though i’ve never really tried one. haha.

  14. You look great. πŸ™‚ What a great backdrop! I’ve never tried beets. I haven’t a clue what they even taste like!

  15. I love beets and beets in JUICE! And i love your outfit. I so love the denim jacket. So here’s my question!: Are denim vests in style right now? I have been missing them since the last one I wore about 16 years ago! πŸ™‚
    I hope they are backÒ€¦or coming back! πŸ™‚ heheÒ€¦(Did I just date myself terrribly?)

  16. your bag is soo fun!!

  17. You know this is my jam, and I’ll have you know that this post caused an uncontrolled order from F21 (something that never happens). You look LOVELY, so statuesque and understated in the best way. Miss you! xo

  18. Jen if you love pickled beets I have to suggest you try them from McCutheon’s Apple Products:

    Our family owned buisness is based out of Maryland but sold nationwide, if you call they can tell you places in your area that carry the products. People RAVE about these beets (I haven’t been able to bring myself to try them yet…) and thought you might be interested.

    PS-love the outfit πŸ™‚
