J. Jill Shirred-Waist Maxi Dress Review

March 26, 2017

Do I look happy and relaxed in these photos? I think it’s because this dress is soooo comfortable!

J Jill Shirred-Waist Maxi Dress review, style over 50

 I’ve always been a fan of J. Jill’s high quality and upscale vibe, so I’m excited to review their April collection. This pretty blue floral dress is the Shirred-Waist Maxi Dress in Clear Blue Botanical Whimsy print. This dress is so versatile, comfortable, and wrinkle-free. I can see myself wearing it for teaching, for a weekend outing, or even just around the house because it’s as comfy as pajamas! I’m wearing a small and love the fit, though I could’ve gone for an XS if I wanted a more form-fitting look (for reference I’m a 4/6 – 4 on top, 6 on the bottom). The dress comes in a black and white print, as well as navy and black.  It would be a good dress for traveling too.
