JJill hits and misses on Over 50 Feeling 40

Join me today at JJill and see my hits and misses for this shopping trip.

For Christmas, my youngest son gave me a gift card, so with sales underway, last week was the perfect time to shop.

I headed over to The Shops at La Cantera, and went in with my style adjectives: Approachable, confident, current, creative, and respectable (my way of saying elegance).

The first look includes a Relaxed V-Neck Pullover I got on the sale rack for 50% off the clearance price…I thought starting off with a hit was a great way to go!!

What worked and didn't work shopping at JJill

JJill Plaid tunic is a miss for Over 50 Feeling 40

Both the plaid tunic and the Wearever Mixed Media Top were on a sale rack with 50% off the sale price that day.  I liked both tops……but, both were misses for me.  Why?

  1. The Wearever top is awesome, but I currently own two tops in that same color, so I could not justify bringing it home…though it met my style adjectives.
  2. The plaid tunic was fun, but too sloppy for me and I have no need in my wardrobe for a piece like this.

If you like one of the sale pieces I link to and your size is not online, then I recommend calling your nearest location to see if your size is on the racks.  I am sure they will ship it!

A hit at JJill for over 50 feeling 40

This Soft Tab Sleeve Pull Over Shirt is a definite hit!  As I wrote yesterday, I am looking most for tops I can wear all year long.  This one has the tabs to pull sleeves up and down and it is a light fabric.  I purchased it in both colors!

A shopping hit at JJill on Over 50 Feeling 40

Depends on how you look at this one…I loved it and it is a hit for my creative side.  But, I did not need another jacket like this one.  It is fun though and on sale.  Pure Jill Shibori-Print Velvet Jacket. 

A miss at JJill for Over 50 Feeling 40

The new Soft Safari Jacket was the reason I went into the store last week.  I say it online, in a catalog, and on a mannequin and thought…that is mine!

But, as you can see, it was a total miss for me and I tried two sizes.  It does nothing for my rounded figure in the middle but make it worse.

The neckline doesn’t work for me and the pockets on my head lights are just not good.  It is a cute jacket…just a miss on me.

I do like the new green they are featuring in this collection called Eucalyptus. 

Relaxed Knit Pants at JJill are a miss on Over 50 Feeling 40

Speaking of green, here are the Relaxed Knit Pants and the print is lovely.

I also tried two sizes of these, but they are too relaxed for me.  Fit was the reason they were a miss, but they are very comfy!

Tomorrow, I am going to style for you my favorite JJill pant and discuss how they have a new version of it about to hit the stores. 

JJill Textured Hooded Sweater is a hit on over 50 Feeling 40

I do not know why I suddenly like hoodies, but I do!  This is really new for me.  This is the Striped Hooded Tunic.  

I think a wardrobe goal for me next fall will be to get a hoodie for cooler weather.  I just would not wear it very long this year, but it is a great Gigi-piece for playing with my “Beast Squad of six!”  And…I might be watching sales for one!!

it is always difficult to walk away from garments I like on sale, but with a new semi-retired lifestyle, and new style adjectives, I was able to leave some cute pieces behind and purchase a few I am excited about.

This shopping trip happened with a wonderful gift card, but I am able to shop right now from selling most of my professional clothes on ebay!  That has been important for my wardrobe transition.

A NOTE ABOUT THIS WEEK

Restand Relaxation is a hit on over 50 feeling 40

I have a variety of fun topics for you this week.  I also have been “studying”….seriously, studying…about a cozy lifestyle and will speak more to that later. 

Remember to “choose” joy this week!  

Thank you for reading…supporting…and encouraging.  You are the best!

KEEP SMILING!!
