Dressing for the Season with J.Jill

Advertisement (be sure to scroll to the end of the post for a J.Jill $100 giveaway!) jjill 1Fall is hands down my absolute favorite season of all.  There’s so much nostalgia and fond memories that come along with this time of year.  The way the air smells–so crisp and cool!–reminds me of my high school soccer days and our late night practice sessions.  The sound of football on television in the morning reminds me of my mom’s weekend tradition of homemade fried chicken and ranch dressing while we watched the Jets.  The soups and chilis and scones and pasta and stews that seem to taste oh-so-much-more delicious when leaves are falling outside. The first trick-or-treaters to ring our door bell, that first bite of pumpkin pie, the first Christmas lights to go up–every year the excitement rushes back as I get to re-live my favorite memories through the eyes of my children.

With my seemingly endless list of “favorite things” about fall and winter, I must say the clothes of the season are up there toward the very top. I love me a good sweater. I can never have too many boots and booties.  And I especially love dressing in cozy layers.

Layers are so necessary in California because even in the middle of December the day can begin as winter and end as spring and shedding those layers is the only way to make it through. My love of all things J.Jill isn’t exactly a secret.  I’ve gushed about my obsession for their linen line for every day wear and about how much I adore their Ponte collection for my church wardrobe.  This time I got to try out some of their sweaters and a pair of super rad black pants that Ben has requested I wear on date night. Here are two different looks styled using many of the same pieces in both of the outfits.jjill 2This sweater is the J.Jill Mixed Texture Open Cardigan Sweater in wheat heather. I’m wearing a P XS.  It’s suuuuper versatile, soft, comfy and warm while not being the least bit bulky–the perfect piece for layering. It’s the perfect mom-uniform/ready-for-anything sweater so you can bet you’ll be seeing me in it all season.jjill sweaterJewelry from here. Bag from here. Glasses here.

Because I’m pretty short (4-11) and I have “muscular” legs, it can be pretty tough for me to find pants that work.  I discovered these J.Jill black Ponte knit zip-pocket leggings and I was so excited about how they fit.  They’re great! And stretchy! Veeery stretchy!  Like the hug-your-legs-perfectly-without-making-you-feel-suffocated kind of stretchy–and I like that. Just like my previous outfit, I paired them with my “everyday” flannel, white tee shirt and black booties.  For an added layer I added this moto jacket.jjill black pants sitting black jjill outfit
