Everyday Style - What I Wore

Hope all of the Mom's out there had a wonderful Mother's Day and were able to do something special for yourself or with your family!  We had beautiful weather and I had the perfect weekend. On Friday I had to go into one of our stores for work so I wore the outfit on the left in the morning. I picked up my daughter from a school trip in the afternoon and we went out for dinner so I added a tee and converse for the more casual look on the right.  I love that this skirt has pockets!

On Saturday I met friends for shopping, dinner and a movie.  It was such a relaxing day not having to worry about any other obligations.  I am still holding myself to a shopping ban and I'm happy to report that I didn't buy anything!  


Sweater: JCrew Factory
Jeans: Gap
Necklaces: Stella & DotStella & Dot
Flats: Similar

Nothing says it's summer more than bright shorts and sandals. I had to get up at the crack of dawn to help with my daughter's swim meet. I don't like getting up early on weekends, especially on Mother's Day, but we were home by noon and spent the day on the patio while my husband smoked prime rib on the smoker. It was the best meal I have had all year!

I put today's outfit together according to the Instagram style themes (Minty Fresh and I've Had This More Than 5 Years). The morning was warm but then the temperature dropped 20 degrees and I had to change into jeans and a scarf.

A friend had bought this sweater and decided she didn't like it, so she gave it to me.  I really like the lace detail and how it cinches at the waist.  A rainy, cold day gave me another chance to wear my Hunter's.

On Wednesday, Ada from Elegance and Mommyhood featured my floral outfit that I posted last week on her blog along with some other stylish bloggers for her Summer Must Have series. Be sure to check out her blog for casual, elegant outfit inspiration!

  2. You look divine (as usual). Loving the first two outfits with the full skirt and the pink shorts with striped shirt. I must have missed it that you live in Chicago - one of the greatest cities there are. I love it so much. Where about? We were/are neighbors since I lived in Michigan for 15 years (have you been)? Also, how old is your daughter? How cool that you are the official of your daughter's swim team and you get to go to dinner with her. I cannot wait till Vivian is a little older so I can do things with her. =)

    And thanks for the nice words about my blog. Aww, just made my Friday.

    1. Thanks Susan! I'm still in the stage where I'm trying to remix my closet so even though I see things on other bloggers that I would love to have, I've been able to stick to it!

  8. Great looks, Jill. My favorite? I'm torn between the gray sweater (gorgeous!) with the pink scarf and the pink shorts and striped top. It's interesting to see how you have to dress for various seasons right now. Chicago weather is crazy!

  9. I love seeing your style diary of sorts...what you wore, where you wore it. It's the epitome of what originally drew me to fashion blogs and I wish there were more like yours! All of your outfits are polished and realistic- lots of great pieces and outfit inspiration.
