Linen-Knit Draped-Front Sleeveless Top & Cotton Essential Pants

May 20, 2018

Nothing says summer like blue and white, and cotton and linen.

Linen-Knit Draped-Front Sleeveless Top

J.Jill gave me these items to review. All opinions are all my own.

Linen-Knit Front-Draped Sleeveless Top

This cute little top in linen knit and feels cool and fabulous against the skin.  The draped front is a nice feminine detail and covers a bit of a midlife tummy.  Available in many pretty colors.  It’s 100% linen knit so hand wash cold. Size down TWO sizes!  (I’m wearing the XS and it’s too big.)


Essential Cotton-Stretch Ankle Pant

Soft slim pants with a bit of stretch for comfortable and fit.  A mix of cotton, rayon and spandex allows for machine washing in cold. I’m wearing a Misses size 4 and they fit well.  I’m usually a 4 or 6, so I’d say they run true to size.  If you’re between sizes, go down to the smaller size.

Hope all my fun fashionistas had a great weekend!  I can’t believe that next week is my last week of the school year.  It’s going to be a super busy and happy week, but also bittersweet. I’ve had such sweet kids this year and it will be sad to say good-bye to them … well, you know … a little sad.  But I’m SO ready to live and blog on my own schedule for the summer.  A day of teaching is so regimented that teachers get excited just thinking about going to the bathroom on their own schedule!

In case you missed it, be sure to check out this funky outfit I bought for myself!  (My new FAV fun jeans!)

    That is such a fun wrap top! It’s beautiful, and I like the slouchy style on you! 🙂 It’s really good with the white pants also.

    Hope that you are having a nice weekend 🙂
