J.Jill Smocked-Waist Maxi + Light Essential Cardigan

June 24, 2018

I love a maxi skirt in the summer. I’ve already shared how I hate shorts, and I’m never really tan, so a maxi skirt covers my legs and is cool and breezy and feels just right for summer!


The Skirt

This pretty J.Jill skirt is super soft and lightweight.  The smocked waist is flattering. It comes in this pretty “Seaside” blue, along with black.  Machine washable, which is always a plus in my book. (c/o)

The Cardigan

The Light Essential Cardigan is a linen and rayon blend, so the texture feels heavenly.  It comes in 8 pretty colors. Hand wash or dry clean. (c/o)

Top # 1

This easy to wear front-tie tee is currently only avaiable in plus sizes. Grab it if that’s your size!  And if not, take a look at this cotton blend version.(c/o)

Top #2

I also tried the skirt with the linen-knit drape-front top in Seaside and loved the way it looked!  My only complaint is that this XS top is really way too big on me.  It’s a fabulous top, but be sure to size down 2 sizes, Ladies! (c/o)

The Necklace

I accessorized by wearing my pretty mixed metal wildflower pendant. Remember that a portion of the sale of this necklace goes to the J.Jill Compassion Fund, a charity to help women in need. (c/o)

The Bag

This hearty Mixed Striped Jute Tote Bag is quickly becoming my summer go-to.  Made of durable natural fibers and leather straps, it also comes in a pretty version with navy stripes. (c/o)


I’ve had these gladiator sandals for years and they just never seem to go out of style.

    Oh what a beautiful skirt! I love the white top with it particularly!

    Hope that you had a good weekend! We had a relaxing one here, all trying to recover from that winter bug we caught!
