J. Jill OOTD

J. Jill Gingham Rayon Twill Shirtdress, Spanx tights, Sam Edelman booties

Over the last few years I have had a harder time finding styles that I like in stores and from my former go-to brands. I just don't like many of the recent trends. But I still wanted to shop for new clothes. To do so, I decided to expand my shopping horizon.

I wound up checking out J. Jill because someone recommended that I try their cropped and ankle length leggings. Due to their high waist, they worked really well for me during my pregnancy with Rosie. I became so attached to them that I wound up grabbing a few pairs in smaller sizes for postpartum. Those leggings were my foray into J. Jill. Over the last few months I have also found a number of cute dresses in their sale section.

I am not sure if I am yet in their target demographic, age-wise. From their own website, they aim to attract a baby boomer customer base. But I find the fabrics to be of good quality and the styles to be appealing while remaining professional and modest.

The above pictured dress is one of the items I bought from them last fall. I already had a checked shirt dress very similar to this from Old Navy but the fabric was starting to show wear. It definitely was becoming too shabby for work. I was happy to grab this Gingham Rayon-Twill Shirtdress during a very good sale (I paid less than it is selling for right now). It has side pockets and a buttonless placket. It is nursing friendly though not as easily pumping friendly. The fabric is substantial without being stiff. I'm wearing it with Sam Edelman booties and Spanx tights.
