Hi everyone! I was super-excited for this opportunity because I personally love J.Jill and their linen looks for April! They have such great and wearable clothing! And they carry the most amazing petite sizes! They fit!!!!! I have a hard time finding clothing sometimes (especially pants) because I’m a shorty mcshort-short at 5’2. Or as my husband likes to refer to it as “fun-size”, but that’s a whole different post :). I always think it’s funny that people say, “You look so much taller on your blog!”. (Deadpan) Really… Really? So I love that I can actually find clothing that fits!
It was fun to shop and I get to play model to show you an outfit I absolutely LOVE. I love linen, It’s so comfortable, and I love natural materials. So here you go in my modeling debut!
I bought the Love linen Yarn died striped linen tunic. It called my name with how comfortable and easy it was. I love that it was longer too so I could put their Capri leggings underneath and the leggings fit perfectly! I will wear this through next fall! You just might see me at a book signing in October wearing it!
Here’s the whole outfit in all of it’s cuteness and comfort. It’s super easy to wear.
I did also get a sweet pair of earrings to complete the look. They have some cute accessories.
I also picked up this scarf while I was there too to wear with jeans and a white T-shirt. They had a great deal if I spent $150 I got $50 off. Hello scarf!
Here I am looking all artsy
Here is what J.Jill has to say about all of their Love Linen collection
No one knows linen like J.Jill knows linen. Our customers Love Linen because of its refined ease, its quality and the way color comes through and lasts.
This spring, we are showcasing Linen in a Whole New Light. We have updated our linen collection with fresh details, blended knits and watercolor effect prints that offer new ways to experience our favorite fabric.
J.Jill has created linen blend fabrics to add versatility and lightness
·Adding rayon (a silky fiber) to linen increases the fabrics softness and also creates a beautiful luster and drape
·Adding cotton to linen ensures softness, a cool touch and minimizes shrinking.
Linen Features and benefits:
·Feels cool to the touch and is consider a summer fabric
·Highly absorbent yet has natural wicking, a perfect choice for hot & humid days
·Linen’s luster comes from its natural wax content
·Linen comes from the stalk of the Flax plant and the fabric of linen is 2-3x the strength of cotton
·Linen can be machine washed, dry cleaned or steamed
·For best results with machine washing, tumble dry on a low temperature and iron while slightly damp
·Our modern finishing techniques have lessened the tendency of linen to wrinkle
The History of Linen
·Linen is one of the oldest fabrics in use today
·Linen was first used in Egypt where it was prized for its purity and cleanliness
Here are a few looks from their April Style guide.
