My Sunday Best With J.Jill

Advertisement(be sure to scroll to the end of the post for a J.Jill $100 giveaway)

jjill ponte dress petite I remember one day over the summer being particularly tough on me.  My heart had cracked open a little bit and I was doing my absolute best to hold everything together.  To appear brave.  To be strong for my boys.  I wouldn’t let myself cry. Instead, I cleaned.  Because that’s what I do when I’m trying not to cry.  And when I chatted with my mom on the phone, I made sure to tell her just how “fine” I was.

But mom’s know better. What I didn’t say with words she could hear in my voice–I needed her. We hung up the phone and soon after there was a knock at my door. It was her. We hugged. Then we hugged some more. And then I finally cried. After the last tear fell, she gave me one more squeeze and told me to go take a shower and get ready, she would watch the boys. Even though I had no plans of leaving the house, she promised that if I would just “put myself together” my day would start to go much better.  So I peeled myself out of my paint stained sweats and oversized t-shirt and I got ready–like, really got ready. Mascara too, you guys.

And you know what?
She was right.
I felt better.
I felt like myself again.
I felt encouraged.

And it got me thinking about the role “putting ourselves together” plays in our productivity and confidence level.

Once upon a time (long, long ago), I used to get dressed up for work 5 days a week.  I wore high heals EVERY single day. Skirts, collared shirts, slacks, blazers…nylons even.

And then I became a mom.

Oh how quickly I traded those high heals and dress pants for flip flops and denim.  The space in my closet once filled with tweed and houndstooth and gingham eventually got packed away into a tub out in the garage.  And while I was ever so grateful to be home with my babes (and wearing my favorite hole filled jeans), a part of me missed feeling tailored–dressed up–professional.  I missed feeling the confidence that came along with those blazers and briefcases.

Lucky for me, I have church every Sunday. Which gives me one day a week to dress like the old “tailored Ashley”.  And “tailored Ashley” keeps me balanced. But I’m a mom now.  And comfort is vital to my sanity (as I mentioned to y’all in my previous post about my mom uniform).  I’m chasing kids, lugging a diaper bag, wrangling toddlers–all of which require me to be comfortable in my church clothes.  When I had the opportunity to try out the latest J.Jill Ponte collection, I knew it would be the perfect fit for my Sunday wardrobe.  Here’s a quick bit about what J.Jill has to say about their fabulous new collection:

Ponte Features and Benefits:

  • Rayon-blended fabric creates durability in addition to flexibility and softness
  • Ponte is machine washable
  • The unique fabric resists wrinkles and creases, making ponte extremely travel friendly
  • Our ponte knit bottoms feature wide elastic waistbands with a clean finish for a smooth fit around the waist and a refined appearance
  • The weight, drape and finish of our ponte collection lends a more dressed-up feel to any outfit
  • Together, the new lightweight fabric mixture of rayon, nylon, and spandex invents great coverage and fit while also creating drape and movement.

I wholeheartedly second everything stated above! jjill ponte skirt Here’s what I grabbed from the Ponte Collection: The Ponte Knit with pockets (size XSP). The Ponte Knit Houndstooth Cropped Top (size XSP). The Ponte Knit A-line Skirt in Heather Gray (size XSP).  The Perfect Striped Shirt in Pewter (size XSP). Each of these pieces is so incredibly versatile and classic.  Dress them up, dress them down.  Mix in some patterns and color. There are so many options.  These are a few of the ways I styled my pieces:accessories fossil watchponte gray dressjjill ponte cotton skirtskirtSay hello to the most comfortable skirt of ALL time!

    I really love to wear a pair of jeans (my go-to pair is a boyfriend pair from the GAP when I lived in NYC), a tunic (the one I’m thinking of is gray and made out of sweatshirt material), my Minnetonka moccasins, and my army green “army” jacket from Old Navy. The tunic covers, the jeans fit (in the waist and in the legs–I’m short and petite), the jacket keeps me warm, and I just really love my moccasins!

They are both so effortlessly stylish and can be easily dressed up or down depending on how you accessorize. I NEED them in my closet!! My go-to fall look usually consists of skinny jeans, boots, and a scarf. With these three elements, you can make anything in your closet look put together and stylish (and you’ll be warm and cozy too)!!

My favorite fall look is a knee-lengh skirt with tights, rain boots, a cardigan or flannel with a peacoat and a scarf if it’s cold enough! Cannot forget to accessorize with a necklace and a watch with a few bracelets. I like to keep my hair down and let it blow in the cool fall breeze!

I’ll pair both with a loose BF tee (in white, black or gray) and then accessorize with a cute patterned scarf and some layered bracelets. Then, obviously booties to keep my feet warm. 🙂

J.Jill has it all. Really love the grey pointe dress!! Ordering the jeans, everything I’ve read they’re great, also the white tunic shirt. Can’t wait to wear them with leggings.

    I really wish I could embrace stylish dresses for fall, but when the weather starts cooling down my body temperature drops even more I think. Our office area is so cold everyone wears thick sweaters, sometimes with a jacket and blankets are the norm in every chair so we can wrap up when we have to sit too long.
    So my favorite fall fashion is a nice thick turtleneck, wool slacks (with thermals underneath) and an attractive pair of gloves when my fingers just can’t handle being bare.

    I love boots. Tall ones, short ones, no matter. Add in a thick cardi and I’m in heaven.
