Linen Dress Revisited

I wanted to add a little something to this J.Jill linen dress after styling it a couple of weeks ago (More Linen).  The addition of a jean jacket is such a simple thing but it creates a really different effect. It also helps that my neck is back to normal so I can move around.… Read More Linen Dress Revisited

More Linen!

Needing something easy for summer?  Go for more linen!  You know how much I love “convenient clothing” and this J.Jill linen dress certainly passes muster. It’s one you can throw over your head and run out the door for all types of occasions all summer long.  I also added this cute J.Jill bag and these slip-on… Read More More Linen!

J.Jill Life in Linen

If you like your clothes crisp and pressed you probably haven’t considered linen as a warm-weather fabric choice.  I’ve been one of those people.  I’ve used sizing to get a slightly starched look and feel to clothing in the past.  That’s caused me to overlook linen as a summer staple, which is too bad.  It… Read More J.Jill Life in Linen

Spring Blues

Classic blue and white takes a decidedly spring-like turn with these J.Jill separates. Don’t you just love this sweater’s shade of blue? The weight is perfect for this time of year. In most areas (probably not Yuma) you’ll be able to wear it well into summer, especially those evenings when there’s a little chill in… Read More Spring Blues

Lace-Back LBD

How pretty is this J.Jill Lace-Back LBD?  From the sheer-lace arms to the pleated lace overlay covering the back, the details of this unique dress make it special and party-worthy.  Lace is prefect for those occasions where sequins and sparkle are a bit too much, yet you still want a little embellishment.  This dress hits… Read More Lace-Back LBD

Red Check

Give me all the red for the holidays!  I always love red, but this time of year it seems especially appropriate.  Maybe because we equate it with Santa’s outfit?  Who knows?  But it’s definiately the most prevalent color this time of year. Red takes on a more “everyday” look as gingham, and I love it… Read More Red Check

Think Pink

Now that fall is here, what do you think about pink? True, I’ve waited for months to bring out the darker autumn colors, and I’m relishing that fact, but there’s just something about pink.  In its lighter tones its flattering to just about every skin tone.  It can soften an edgier look without seeming frilly… Read More Think Pink

Cowl-Neck Dress

I have to admit, when I first saw this Pure Jill Fit cowl-neck dress, “workout” was not the word that came to mind.  Although the stylists at J.Jill show this with leggings and sneakers, my mind went to leather and heels.  Go figure.  I’d say that’s versatility at its best.  Although I can’t see working… Read More Cowl-Neck Dress

Velvet

I’m sure you don’t need me to tell you velvet is such a hot trend this fall.  It’s such a luxurious fabric, so soft yet so elegant, you wonder why it took so long to reclaim its status as a fashion favorite. I used to sew a lot growing up, and I remember choosing velvet… Read More Velvet
