This post is part of my weekly Q&A series “30 Questions on 30A” where I interview friends, blogger babes and girl bosses to learn what makes them tick and find out their 30A favorites!
Have you ever stumbled upon one of those Pinterest images with side by side outfits – one a fabulous celebrity wearing a cute outfit and the other is a girl wearing the totally attainable everyday version? Chances are the girl wearing the everyday outfit was Jeanette Johnson. Jeanette is the blogger behind J’s Everyday Fashion and makes it her mission to help women find affordable fashion to recreate their favorite looks using budget friendly items and clothes already in the closet. She does it all with panache and a healthy dose of color – which I love! Maybe there’s something about being a Florida girl that draws us to brights. Read on to get to know J in this fun Q&A.
