When Style Meets Comfort | What I Wore #ootd

MidLife Mom Style - Great Style at J Jill

I love fashion and I think I have a decent sense of style. But I also love comfort. Over the years, I have taken my love of fashion and style and tried to combine it with my yearning for comfort. The result is a casual and simple wardrobe that both looks good and feels great. It takes time to find stylish pieces that fit you well AND feel good to wear (let's not even mention age-appropriate).

It's been a while since I've shopped at J Jill, so when The Motherhood asked if I was interested in working on a J Jill campaign with them, I said of course! J Jill is known for clothing that is both stylish and comfortable, as well as having great choices for a Mid-Life Mom to look on-trend without trying "too hard".  J. Jill is easy, relaxed and inspired style - and that is perfect for your fall wardrobe! (Be sure to scroll down to the bottom of the post for savings on your own piece from the Pure Jill collection!)

Are you a J Jill shopper? Have you heard of the Pure Jill line? The Pure Jill line is clean, simple and timeless, all qualities that I look for in adding pieces to my wardrobe. The Pure Jill Collection provides an uncomplicated way of dressing - because, really, who needs complicated? I pulled out several great pieces from the collection to try on:

This season, straight off the runways, the Pure Jill Plush Collection is featuring an ultra soft new boucle texture. You can wear this texture in a fabulous infinity scarf, comfy pullover or even a cardigan or coat! There's a piece for every sense of style.

I loved the relaxed Cascading Hoodie with an open front knit style. This piece would look great with jeans or cords for running errands, school events or lunch with friends! It looked great on too, you can see the great drape, despite the not so lovely dressing room picture!

I spied these V-Neck Crinkle Tunics and scarves too. I love the combination of Navy and Grey. These tunics would work great with leggings and flats or boots. Add a scarf and you're all set! Did I mention J Jill has a great selection of jewelry and scarves?

There were so many great pieces and so many outfit ideas swirling in my head. In the end, I settled on three great pieces from all that I tried on: The Pure Jill Plush Pullover, Pure Jill Plush Infinity Scarf and the Pure Jill Crinkle V-Neck Tunic.

I fell in love with the pullover and the scarf. They just screamed "fall" to me, and I pictured them with skinnies and boots for a fall outing with my boys, and that's exactly what I did on Saturday! This outfit was perfect for a crisp fall day at an outdoor neighborhood market.

Jeans - Ann Taylor Black Skinnies
T-shirt - Lord and Taylor
Boots - Aerosoles (old and re-soled)

The three pieces that I bought from J Jill, fit perfectly in with the Fall staples I already have in my closet. The ladies working at my local J Jill were a big help in pulling sizes and putting outfits together. We had a lot of fun talking clothes and comfort.
