One of my wonderful sons gave me a JJill gift card for my birthday, so I was excited to head to The Shops of La Cantera for a birthday shopping spree. In the picture above, you are looking at the new Quinn pant.  I needed some new pants which fit my changing body better.  I have lost a few pounds and done some toning in the gym…so it is time to retire the baggy pants and bring on the fit.

While I was there, I decided to also try on some pieces from the August collection just released.  August is when clothing retailers begin to nudge us gently toward fall with some lightweight autumn-like garments which will transition easily.

You can see why I am not going to wear this vest sleeveless!  However, the vest and the pants did come home with me.  I actually purchased the petite version of this vest (not picture here) so that I got a slightly shorter length.  It is going to be a great transition piece for me.  And, the pants are lots of fun and I can do a lot of different styling with them….also the Quinn.

I also wanted to show you this top.  I really like it, but I did not purchase it because I already own one very similar to this style.  But, for those who don’t have a similar one,  this is worth the consideration.

I think this outfit would look so good with a black scarf and be perfect for work.  If there are any teachers out there…JJill does offer a discount to teachers.

They had some beautiful jewelry pieces.  The store manager said she cannot keep this necklace in stock.  As soon as it arrives, it sells.  The beads are lovely.  I love this blue & White bead with brown.  Ladies began looking at it while I was there and I cannot find it online.  So you might want to check your local JJill if you are interested to see if they have one.

However, I also liked the beading on this necklace as well…

This is not a sponsored post, but I do wear a lot of JJill items, and since my son provided the gift…I wanted to share the journey with you.  All of these things are featured in the slideshow below.  Thanks to my son for bringing this post and some new items my way.  He is really a fashionista himself…but maybe he won’t read this!  It’s our secret.

KEEP SMILING!!
