J Jill: IKAT Textile Celebrates Culture...Plus A Scarf Giveaway!!:



My dear friend, Kerry,said, "Let's go eat Thai food for your birthday!"  And, of course, I replied...I AM SO THERE.  When planning what to wear, I immediately turned to J JILL'S BIG IKAT PRINTED SHIRT!! 

Since we were visiting another culture for food, this J Jill collection was perfect to visit another culture for style. IKAT is one of the world's oldest traditions in textile decoration and is traced back to 15th Century South America.  And I do believe J Jill has the softest linen and it wrinkles less than any I have worn.

So, off we go to eat Thai food at THAI TOPAZ!




Delicious food...great atmosphere...sweet company...and beautiful clothes...who could ask for anything more!  Thanks to Kerry and J Jill!





Now, here is the really exciting part!  One of you is going to win an  IKAT INFINITY SCARF FROM J JILL!!

Just follow the Rafflecopter...I cannot wait to see who wins!!  Today, I am linking with the fabulous ladies of MONDAY MINGLE!!  Check them out!


Happy Saturday everyone!
