For more than twenty years, I’ve been a devoted fan of J.Jill clothing. My favorite gray cashmere cardigan, white linen cardigan, navy casual jacket, nude sandals, gray sneakers, and three pairs of jeans are from J.Jill. We have a new J.Jill store here in Johnson City, so I decided to stop by to check out some of the latest trends for spring 2019.
Several people have emailed me to ask if I would be buying the new cropped flare leg pants. I always try to keep an open mind about new things, but my first instinct was that this style would not flatter my shape. As you can see, it is a great look when it is styled to elongate my torso above.
The tops above and below didn’t serve me well because they pull across the bust and the neckline is too high.
The pants are not a style or pattern I would wear often, but they are cute and very comfortable. I like the black knit top below with them more than the top above.
It was great fun visiting with the gals in the store. They were very helpful, but never overbearing. Lisa brought many things for me to try on and suggested accessories and sizes. The store was impeccably clean and bright. Even the other customers were friendly and in a good mood. It was such a pleasure shopping there. The Johnson City store is in the Peerless Center on North Roan Street.
The Wearever Ultrafine V-Neck Jacket (above and below) will be the perfect piece for cool summer evenings — the soft pale pink (blossom) works with almost every pant, and tank I own including my two basic tank dresses. The Emilie Full-Leg Crops (above) surprised me the most. I didn’t think I could wear that style at all, but I like the way they look with block heel slingback shoes. If you guessed that I bought the jacket in blossom and the black linen full-leg cropped pants (shown above in olive), you guessed right. I am wearing an extra-small in all the pieces from J.Jill.

Visit the J.Jill website here or drop in to visit one of their stores. They have more than 270 of them now! There is no (pending or past) compensation to me for this post. My only purpose in sharing these images is to show you the spring trends I wanted to try on.
In the image above, I am showing you my own clothes (all more than a year old) which I wore shopping and running errands. It is still cool and breezy here.
