I recently visited the beautifully redesigned J.Jill store at the Houston Galleria. What a gorgeous space! The color and materials of the store feel very organic and soothing. The layout is thoughtful and makes shopping easy to navigate. I especially like how there are distinct sections of the store based on type of clothing. J.Jill is full of different styles and trends to appeal to every type of woman – the one common thread is that it is all uncomplicated. You can get anything from professional work clothes to casual lounge apparel to on-trend accessories all in one place! They offer a variety of sizes, including petite for those of us who don’t reach past the 5′ mark (without heels of course!), and feature a new collection every month to keep their look fresh.
Within minutes of walking in the store, I was instantly drawn to a soft and flowy chambray shirt. Who doesn’t love a great chambray shirt? Chambray is the perfect combo of casual, chic & comfortable. And it is so versatile! Depending on how you wear it, chambray can easily take you from day to night or from the park to dinner. Check out the two ways I styled this fantastic top.
Look 1: I paired the chambray top with the black and white striped Ottoman skirt and a great multi-strand bracelet. This casual and preppy look is perfect for brunch with friends or dinner in the neighborhood. It’s dressed up just enough but still comfortable enough to chase after the kiddos at the park.
Look 2: Pair the chambray top over the incredibly comfortable ankle length leggings. Add a lightweight red scarf for a pop of color and you are good to go! This is the ultimate school drop off look – as easy and cozy as workout gear, but with style and purpose. I’d likely wear this look with a cute flat sandal or pair of converse, and come fall, a short bootie will be darling!
(PS: I’m trying on both of these looks these on in the gold cork heeled shoes I was wearing when I visited the store. They are from Elaine Turner and I wear them constantly. You can find similar styles here).
Thank you so much to J.Jill for hosting me and my fellow Houston blogger friends for a great event! I had wonderful time and love my new clothes! Do you like this look and want it for yourself?
