I live in these J. Jill Linen Big Shirts all summer long!
I am pretty particular when it comes to food, coffee, and temperature. The food and coffee is self explanatory – the temperature maybe not so much. I like to joke that I am only comfortable temperature wise about 2 weeks in March and 2 weeks in October. I hate hot weather and I’m not too fond of really cold weather, though I would much rather be cold than hot. I do all my gardening and outdoor activities first thing in the morning if possible, and if not, then they usually just don’t get done. The odd thing is that for someone who hates hot weather so much, I get cold really easily. I am the one you see wearing a sweater in air conditioned buildings. We keep our house at 76/77 in the summer – that is plenty cool enough for me.
This makes deciding what to wear to go out to eat in the summer tricky. Too much and I am burning up in the car and going in and out of the restaurant. Not enough and I freeze all through the meal. Enter my favorite compromise – J. Jill’s Linen Big Shirt. I love these shirts and have them in three different colors – would love to have them in even more colors! My newest addition is the yarn-died version which is gorgeous! It looks like chambray, but is light and breathable. The long sleeves can be rolled up for the drive to the restaurant and rolled down when I get inside.
Worn with jeans, it’s casual, yet not too casual. It can be worn open over a tank top, where it acts more like a light jacket. Worn with white jeans, it dresses up even more. I love it!
