As a J.Jill Life Styler I couldn’t be more excited about the Pure Jill collection for fall. The clothing is stylish, unique and on-trend. The Pure Jill line uses unstructured silhouettes, interesting textures and natural fabrics, and its style approach gives you the feeling of ease and comfort while still being unique. The clothing is perfect for me – a busy mom of two boys – who runs from school drop off to soccer practice with a lunch with friends in between.
I recently spent a long weekend in my hometown of Chicago. Oh, how I miss the fall in Chicago. The Pure Jill Crinkle Dress was the perfect item for my trip. It is incredibly versatile, packs well, and can be dressed up for a night out or paired with leggings for a daytime look. Here I’m wearing the lightweight dress with a pair of ankle-length leggings and booties for a polished autumn look perfect for brunching in the city. I’m wearing my favorite oversized Ray Ban sunnies and a classic mama topknot.
The booming West Loop has always been known as the hot spot for restaurants, but one of my favorite parts of the West Loop is the view of the city. No matter how long I lived in Chicago, I never grew tired of getting a peek at the Willis Tower. (OK, pause. That is the first time I’ve called it by its new name. As a born and raised Chicagoan, it’ll always be the Sears Tower to me). I love the look of this mixed-metal necklace that I’m pairing with the Pure Jill Crinkle Dress, it adds a little edge and a good contrast to the soft crinkle material. The Pure Jill collection is defined by simple shapes, artful details and soft finishes and so easy to make your own with accessories.
My other favorite piece in the Pure Jill collection is this ultra-soft plush infinity scarf. The boucle texture of this piece from the Pure Jill Plush Collection was seen all over the runway. I love the elegant drape of this scarf and the feel of it immediately conjures up that cozy fall feeling.
Barbara Patin, the designer of Pure Jill says, “fabric is so important to the collection, it’s how we feel when we wear it and touch it. It’s a key element in the design and often where we start from.”
