One sometimes that, even if she cannot seem to do anything with her hair, a nice pair of earrings really pulls a look together. Throw in a jaunty scarf and subtle little frock and voila.
It would be unkind to mention her lighter colored roots; she was going for a frosted highlights sort of thing to cover the gray.

The Physalis alkekengi seed pods are from my garden.
