This weekend Andy and I had the opportunity to attend a baby shower with friends and family in the San Diego area. We had so much fun. We’ve gone to a few coed showers and I think the idea is brilliant. Including Dad is the celebration makes sense. After all, both parents are involved raising… Read More The Versatile Shirtdress

Summer hit with a vengeance this week. Heading to a lunch meeting Wednesday my car, hot enough to fry an egg, informed me the outside temp was 113. Ugh. According to the calendar it’s still Spring. For the rest of the country. June-September is the penance we pay for our amazing weather October – May.… Read More Summer Skirt
Like the saying goes, “when life hands you lemons, make lemonade.” Or maybe a glass of champagne with a little fresh-squeezed lemon juice. 🙂 And these cute shoes. About the time I got this great striped linen J.Jill shirt, my daughters gave me these adorable Soludos shoes. I just had to put them together! My J.Jill… Read More When Life Gives You Lemons. . .
Eliminate, Donate, Participate Recycling has become a part of our daily routine. Glass, plastic, aluminum – these are all commonly recycled materials, but have you thought about fabric or, more specifically, clothing?

I love the embroidery which includes just about any color you might want to use… Read More Feeling (Slightly) Boho
When the summer heat hits, I prefer dresses over shorts. Summer dresses feel cooler and less binding than other clothing options. Since our little corner of the world hit 109 degrees yesterday little details like that become really important! I want a dress that is loose and comfortable but still has shape to it. Otherwise… Read More Easy Summer Dress
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
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!
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
