J. Jill Embroidered Mixed Media Shirtdress & Link Up!

April 27, 2017

I’d describe this Embroidered Mixed Media Shirtdress from J. Jill as a the epitome of classic effortless style.

J.Jill Embroidered Mixed Media Dress review


Mixed Media?

My first thought when I picked it out was, why is it called “mixed media” … looks like one “media” to me!  Lol!  But it actually is a mix of fabrics. The back panel and sleeves are cotton jersey to provide stretch and comfort, while the front panel is embroidered linen!

How can I wear it?

I went with a casual look with comfy sandals, but it would certainly look divine more dressed up as well.  I also think it would be cute with leggings or cropped jeans!  I added the skinny silk scarf, which is also from J. Jill, and comes in blue paisley or this fun striped pattern. The proceeds of this smart little accessory will go to helping women in need. How cool is that?  I love when do-gooding and shopping go together!

Can you believe it’s almost May, Dolls? It makes this tired teacher happy to see the light at the end of the tunnel!  Though I have to say, I’ve had especially sweet kids this year and it will be bittersweet to say goodbye.

Have a wonderful weekend, Ladies!

Stay fun & fabulous! The rest of our life is the best of our life!

    That looks like THE perfect dress for a summer holiday. Just add shoes and an accessory! I love it, and I adore the little striped scarf. How wonderful that it does some ‘good’ as well! xx

    I love that this great shirtdress mixes linen and cotton which are the quintessential materials for Summer. That skinny scarf is so cute and I love the wedges. And Grace’s look is super chic, too. Thanks for the linkup my friend. Love your style Dawn Lucy!

  • Reply Jen @ Librarian for Life and Style April 27, 2017 at 9:03 pm

    Very classic! The scarf is my favorite touch 🙂

  • Reply Laurie April 27, 2017 at 10:19 pm

    I’m liking the idea of the material mix up. Linen can be a bit stiff, so I would imagine this is more comfortable. Looks fabulous! Have a great weekend!

      Ha! Thanks, Jennie! 🙂

  • Reply Monika Faulkner April 28, 2017 at 7:07 am

    I get a slightly retro “Jackie O” vibe off this adorable combo, dearest Dawn…and I LOVE it!! Your new shirtdress is going to be sooo versatile through the spring and summer (how about as the perfect swimsuit cover-up?) and that striped scarf adds just the right touch of colour and pattern!! XOXO P.S. Having some serious hair envy right now!! Did you style it yourself, or were you fresh from the salon?? I ask ’cause I can NEVER manage to do this “undone curls” look for myself…maybe you have some pointers?? 😉

    • Reply Dawn Lucy April 28, 2017 at 4:18 pm

      Oh you’re so sweet! I just put my hair haphazardly in hot rollers. I don’t do it too often because in about a half hour, it’s straight again! ;D

    That’s a beautifully classic look. How brilliant that it has stretch jersey panels for comfort. I love the scarf!

    This is such a great shirt dress! Often they are way too short for me but this one looks just perfect! Do you think it’s too short to wear to work? Thanks!

    More to Mrs. E

    • Reply Dawn Lucy April 30, 2017 at 5:38 am

      Hi Virginia! I have the same problem with shirt-dresses being too short. I think the length of this one is good! But if you’d like it a bit longer, you can always order the TALL size! Thanks so much for stopping by the blog! OXOX
