the building blocks of a wardrobe start with the basics. what better choice than a black jacket or white tee? versatile and practical each item can easily stand alone. but when you pair the two together? i guarantee you’ll always look great. this time of year lightweight knits is a practical choice. not only are they a dream to wear but they’re practically wrinkle-free. i’ve tossed mine over a pair of skinny black jeans (yes, skinny jeans are still on-trend) for a casual chic look. but a skirt would dress-up this duo if needed.
have you noticed the medallion bracelet yet? it’s paired with a few bangles. not only is this wrap bracelet beautiful but it helps fund a cause. J.Jill donates 100% of the proceeds from the Compassion Fund bracelets to help disadvantaged women become self-sufficient. now that’s a cause i can get on board with – women helping women. i thought this bracelet was so sweet that i’ve decided to give one to a special friend. or maybe two. don’t you think these bracelets will make nifty gifts for the holidays?

I like color and usually wear it. Black and white is not a usual option, although it looks great (always I know). Love the look and love the bag – that is one of my favourite type of bags.
Black and white’s always sophisticated. When in doubt…they always “suit.”
Nicely done – everything fits perfect and i proportion plus the accessories are right on. Very chic-
