Prior to the event, the Ann Taylor x Birchbox team asked me to stop by and try on AT’s latest collection and experiment with some beauty favorites…

First stop was at the Escape Aveda Boston salon, where the Birchbox team had sent a package of their top user-rated products. This was their “Daytime Chic” look, which consisted of clean, fresh skin, light lip gloss, and defined lashes.
One happy discovery from the makeup session was Benefit’s they’re real mascara. My lashes have gotten more and more sparse over the years, but a few light coats of this added noticeable length and thickness.

AnnTaylor_Birchbox_Store EP6I was thrilled to discover that my local AT stores started carrying extended petite sizing again. Even though the items may still need some tailoring, it’s great to be able to try on pieces without waiting and paying for shipping. Now if only we could get a bigger selection, and some extended shoe sizes too! For anyone interested in the items in my final outfit, I have a more detailed review coming this weekend.

    Hi Jean, I've been following your blog for over a year now and have been so grateful for your posts! I've always struggled to find clothes that flatter my petite figure, and since discovering your blog I've revamped my wardrobe with many outfits inspired by you and items that fit me so well!

    I absolutely LOVE this outfit posted above. I was able to find the same skirt, lightly used, on eBay (in 00P which was so exciting)! I've also purchased the necklace, which I can't get enough of. Unfortunately, I haven't been able to find the same top and have been looking for something else to pair with the skirt.

    I am wondering if you have any suggestions?

    Thank you!
