I am excited to bring you my first sponsored post by a national brand, JJill. What that means is that JJill gave me the clothes (winning) and asked me to promote my selections on my blog and social media. And I said, oh YES!!! First off JJill is a brand that works for me as a petite (5’1, size 12/14). They have a huge selection of clothes in the petite range from 0P-18P. That means that I can find clothes that are comfortable and made for my body’s proportions. They also have Women’s/Tall/and Plus sizing. JJill’s style is a casual, relaxed look that is perfect for our more laid-back lifestyle. Most of their pants are made from a cotton/rayon blend with lycra thrown in for stretch and to accommodate many body types. Tops are the same which makes them easy to care for a wash. Many pieces are perfect for travel as they pack well and can serve multiple purposes.
I chose the Mixed-Media Shirttail Dress to share with you. This dress has a denim look to it and pairs perfectly with simple canvas shoes or sandals. The fabric in this dress is a bit thicker which makes it a great choice for transitional wear as we move from the hot summer to the cooler fall. I can see this dress with a denim vest and cute booties for a great fall look. For me in the South, I could wear this into the winter months. Oh, and before you ask, I am reading Nancy Thayer’s Nantucket Sisters.
Perfect Dress For Running Errands
I like this dress for running errands because you still look stylish but are super comfortable. Trying to move away from the “yoga pant look” and take my style game up a notch, a simple dress like this with some jewelry helps make you feel more stylish and put together. Don’t look like you came from the gym (when you really didn’t).
Did I Tell You It Has POCKETS?
Usually, this would not be a bonus, but the way JJill has placed the pockets it does not add any visual weight. Due to the heavier fabric, the lines of the dress are still slimming so the pockets are definitely a plus. I found myself playing with the pockets constantly. The petite version of this dress hits right above my knee so I don’t have to helm it. The dress has denim details at the neck and the bottom for a more stylish look.
I Feel A Bit Sassy
JJill brand philosophy is to help you look great and feel good in what you do. They offer you a versatile, always-in-style wardrobe that works with whatever you’re doing and wherever you’re going. J.Jill is easy, relaxed, an inspired style that reflects the confidence of a woman with a rich, full life. Okay, I can get into that! I have to admit, I don’t know about confidence, but I do feel a bit sassy in this JJill Mixed Media Dress.
The Mixed Media Dress Is Offered In Many Sizes
The sizing of JJill is a bit different. I found I was able to go down a size than I normally would have worn. This dress is a Petite Medium and I would normally wear a Petite Large. Most of that comes from the fabric that they make the dresses from (more stretch). Also, we women tend to wear our clothes too big and baggie. At a PM this dress skims my body nicely, giving me curves. If I had ordered it larger, it would not be as flattering.
JJill For Casual, Relaxed Style
JJill has over 200 stores nationwide in malls and shopping centers. And of course, the online store is open 24/7. Check out the many different collections JJill has to offer. Currently, they have a 40% off summer sale items (this dress is brand new and not included). Some of my favorite JJill pieces are the sweaters. As a petite, it is hard to find stylish well made, quality clothes. JJill clothes are made for my lifestyle, casual, on the go, not fussy, but still stylish.
