Last month I did a roundup of business casual looks with J.Jill, so this month I’m doing a roundup of transitional fall looks. If you missed the first post, be sure to check it out before your prep for fall!
Please note that J.Jill did gift me some of the clothes in today’s post but all opinions are my own.
Transition to Fall with J.Jill
My latest box is all about fall; think camel and black hues, cozy knits, and classic shirts. My favorite piece that I received was the controversial embroidered denim. When I pulled them out of the box my husband said, “is that trend back?”. Oh brother! How do you guys feel about the reprise of embroidered denim? This might be a loaded question but I’d love to hear your thoughts. I kinda like the trend and think it’s sweet. At the same time, I’m surprised by how much they’re popping up in stores. They’re cute but are they really for everyone?! I must admit though, this pair is nicer than the flares I had in my teens. The layered-hem pullover is also very cute and super versatile. Totally my style!
Another fun piece that I got was this super easy gingham knit top. It’s definitely a nicer material than the traditional tee and super soft. Since I’m not much of a t-shirt girl, I added this cashmere cardigan and cute pineapple brooch. I love brooches and have so many, I really should start wearing them more often. The distressed black denim was another way for me to keep things on-trend and stylish.

These ponte knit pleated crop pants are not a cut I would usually wear, but I did receive a similar style last month and opted to get this winter version. The stretchy material and elastic waist is something that dreams are made of! Whoever thought of this trend was onto something. They are so comfortable and also work for the office when worn with a dressy shoe.
The white a-line tunic was my least favorite. It’s a cute top but because I am petite and have broad shoulders and a large chest it was a bit much. The blouse is also super billowy, so much so that I tucked it in the back to make it more flattering for the photo. If you’re someone who enjoys wearing tunics then you’ll like the nice fabric and fun wide cuff. To balance things out I paired the tunic with my black skinny jeans and some snakeskin heels I borrowed from Ana Luzia. The necklace is also Ana’s. Thanks for letting me borrow mid-shoot!
Which trend will you be wearing this fall? Let me know your favorite look in the comments.
