J.Jill Printed Rayon Full-Leg Crops & Link Up!

July 6, 2017

I’ve always loved paisley! It’s such a  fun, colorful, and groovy print!  And I’m wild about this Black Artisan Paisley print on these new J. Jill Printed Rayon Full-Leg Crops!

Black Artisan Paisley Print, style over 40



I just caught a bit of a travel special about Marrakech recently and it gave me some inspiration for this look … the rich colors and patterns, the dangly gold earrings, the straw hat … Has anyone ever been to Morocco? I think I need to go!

The Star – J.Jill Rayon Full-Leg Crops

J. Jill does it again with a July collection full  of flattering, high quality, and easy-to-wear pieces.  I’m already a big fan of their cropped pants (love these) and this new print is just luscious!  Also, I sized down this time around, from a S to a XS, and they still are plenty comfy. J.Jill tends to run large, so I’d suggest going at least one size down. Oh, and won’t this print transition nicely into fall when the time comes?!

Supporting Cast

I paired my fab new pants with a plain black tank, Jambu sandals, a vintage bag, and all my pretty new Kendra Scott jewelry from their dreamy summer collection!  And again, I’m wearing my Desert Rose Winkwood sunnies (use code FASHIONSHOULDBEFUN for 30% off!)

    These crops are so fun!!

    You look fantastic. I think that wide-leg crops are a fabulous option to shorts in warmer weather. They offer the ease of a skirt and the comfort of sweats while still being chic and stylish. Thanks for sharing your styling insights and for the link up. Have a great weekend!

    I love those pants!! And I share your love of paisley! I may need a pair of my own!!

    I adore paisley too, Dawn Lucy! I think for me it’s the memories it evokes of my mum wearing it in the 70s when I was little… bring back happy memories 🙂

    I love me a cropped trouser too so these are perfect in my eyes. Love how you’ve channelled your inner Moroccan… love, love, love it all!!

    Thank you for hosting, have a great weekend

    You always wear culottes and palazzo pants so well and always find great things at J. Jill. Love your pants and the edgy sandals with them. Also, all your Kendra pieces are stunning.

    Hope you had a great 4th!

    I love those cropped paisley trousers…they’re perfect for showing off those fabulous shoes! I went to Agadir in Morocco a few years ago but to be honest we stayed in the hotel complex most of the time. When we did venture out we hired bicycles and I managed to find a Zara…no surprise there!
