J. Jill Striped Casual Dress

This winter has been a strange one in Maryland. I know the West Coast has had epic snow. The kind of snow that is so much snow that even snowboarders are all like, “whoa dude, that’s a lot of snow!” But here on the East Coast it has been extremely mild. While that does make getting dressed and paying that heating bill a little easier, my kids are just itching for a good snow day. It’s tough when you have the best sledding hill right in your own backyard! For me, it means I’ve been moving on to having spring like fashion on the brain. We barely even need tights anymore! This J. Jill striped casual dress is an easy style for those transitional days.

I love stripes (if you know me please stop rolling your eyes, I know I wear a lot of stripes, ha!) and having a dress with long sleeves is really nice. The shape of this knit dress can be a little loose rather than hugging curves. I like that style but it does mean not having a waistline. To avoid it looking too loose, I added my light green rain jacket as a fun and practical layer that gives some definition to my waist.

This star pin came in my last Fab, Fit, Fun box to support the Starlight Children’s Foundation. I love the cause and also think it adds a little something to this jacket. These gold dangle earrings are from my most recent Stitch Fix box. I’ll be sharing an unboxing video on that later this week.

You know spring is in the air, yes even in January, when I break out my Converse Shoreline sneakers. I just got them in white in anticipation of all the spring sports I’ll be sidelining in the coming months. If you don’t have a pair, you are missing out. They slip on, are really comfortable and go with everything!

Have you moved on to spring looks or are you still straddled with snow? I think we still have another month or two to go but I’m guessing that groundhog doesn’t see his shadow later this week!

    Love this casual look. I particularly like the Starlight Children’s Foundation pin, too. Also a cause near and dear to me and I agree – it is the perfect touch to the jacket.

    I wish I had the body shape to pull off that look. Yes crazy weather all around. Lots of rain here in the valley in CA which is what we need

    I love that jacket! You look very stylish but not like you tried too hard. I got that pin in my Fit Fab Fun too and I absolutely love it and what it represents.

    Such a classic style. The stripe is fun all through summer. We still have more winter to get through so I’ll just pin for later!

    this is a total me outfit. I already own the shoes and a similar jacket and I wouldn’t have thought to pair it with a striped dress. looks like this is my next purchase for spring

    I LOVE how you paired it with the green bomber and converse. I love the combo! I have a shirt with a similar pattern and love pairing with similar pieces. The dress looks super comfy!
