Beauty & Style with Jill {week 9}

Welcome back to my weekly fashion column, where I share my favorite ensembles from the prior week to help you create new looks with all the clothes you already own.

First, it would really bless me if you shared this graphic and my #stylebyjill posts with your friends.   If you share it and tag me on Instagram with my tags at the end of this post, then you might be my lucky winner to receive a special beauty gift.  I will be selecting one winner each month. 


Last month I went to two of my favorite stores during a huge sale day and found these pretty pieces that I can’t wait to start wearing now that the weather is finally warming up again!

Here is my other new necklace from Francesca’s that I love and can’t wait to wear all spring and summer!

I found this bracelet the other day on their site that is just like my necklace!



Fashion Tips:

#1  Black and Blush the Perfect Spring Combo:

blackjeansw-blushpumps You can find this look on

Rock a black button front blouse with black slim jeans and you'll look like a total babe. Elevate this ensemble with beige leather pumps.  Shop this look for $65:  — Black Button Down Blouse  — Black Skinny Jeans  — Dark Brown Leather Crossbody Bag  — Beige Leather Pumps

love the shoes + bag, can wear them separately or together... And they also look great with the black dress in this photo!

Easy-going nude jacket with black top and matching leather skinnies. Nice touch on the shoe with ankle strap detail

#2 Let’s Hear it for Polka-Dots and Flower Patterns
