It’s funny, I probably wouldn’t look twice at this on a website. Nothing about it really pops out at me, but since Kat has featured it, I can definitely see some nice possibilities with this. Unfortunately, I usually go for black cardigans, so this would be a nice alternative that is basically a neutral and could look great with a lot of colors.
I typically am not a fan of cardigans without buttons or some sort of closures, but I think that this would probably look a little strange with buttons, so it wouldn’t be a deal breaker for me.
The styling in the pictures makes me think that it could look a little too casual, so I think it would be important to wear it with something structured on the bottom, i.e. a pencil skirt or straight leg pants, lest it look a little too hippie-dippie.
Agree about it needing some structure to ground it — interesting – would have to try it on to see if it was sheer at all (which would make it useless over anything but white), and if it hung well — In the past I hae tried on J. Jill clothes in their store and found them to be very dowdy/aging on (lovely on the rack, horrible on me) .
Flowy cardigans like these are in now, and I see women wearing them in the workplace all the time. I have a white one I wear with a pencil skirt or tailored pants and it looks great. This one would add a nice feminine touch to a business outfit.
I like cardigans like this, but I do wind up getting some kind of hidden snap put in. I’m wearing this lemonade yellow cardigan now from http://www.twostardog.com/ (look at the Ooh-La-La collection, the model is wearing it with a white tee and brown / white skirt) but I had a snap put in to close it higher up versus closing only at my waist. For someone with a fuller bust such as myself, it’s more flattering to close it up higher.
Lovely! Very pretty, and it looks like something you could wear year-round.
I love the cut and I love the fabric, but I’m not sure about the batik. I think I’d have to see it in person.
I think this is beautiful. Shayna, I agree that some items at J. Jill are dowdy. But I’ve tried on their jeans before and found that they are perfect for my curvy hips and waist, and their petite tops hit at exactly the right place on my shoulder, so I’m not writing it off yet!
I will have to revisit the next time I’m in the mall where they’re located – thanks for the heads up on the jeans (Is there any more frustratingly-hard-to-find ‘basic’ than a pair of jeans that fit fabulously ??)
I hear you! I recently found some trouser-jeans by Dockers that fit me perfectly and bought three pairs. Now I’ve lost just a little weight and they are baggy enough to be annoying.
While it’s great to have lost a few inches, it is sooooo frustrating to also lose these perfect pants! Of course, one size down is still too tight. Sigh.
I love J. Jill’s fabrics and designs, but agree that their looser fit doesn’t work on everyone.
I’d absolutely have to belt it… I’ve tried on some J.Jill cardigans and have found them to be on the shorter side and the boxy side. I love the color scheme, though.
Thread hijack: I was curious as to people’s perspectives on sharing Major Life Events, as I like to call them, on Facebook. I’ve learned of acquaintances’ engagements, marriages, babies, etc. on Facebook, and I’ve always thought the play-by-play seemed like a bit much. (One friend has a 65-photo album that recounts every moment of his proposal, her acceptance, their celebration.) But I got engaged this past weekend and now feel somewhat torn. To announce via Facebook, or not to announce?
For context, my profile is minimal and includes nothing about work, interests, relationship, etc. In this day and age, is it more odd NOT to make such an update on Facebook? Since my fiance doesn’t have a Facebook account, will it be gauche that some of *his* friends will find out via my update?
I realize I’m probably taking this WAAAAY too seriously, but with all the news reporting on Facebook and how your profile can be perceived by others, I figured it was worth asking.
No one important to you or your fiance should find out big news via facebook. For casual acquaintances, it’s fine, but make sure he’s told all his good friends and family members before you post.
I see nothing wrong with announcing a happy event via Facebook. However, I would only post the announcement AFTER you have spoken to immediate family members and friends who you expect to participate in the wedding.
Agree — No parent should find out that they’re going to be a grandparent via Facebook…
And, honestly, I would prefer not to see a zillion naked pregnant belly shots from friends/acquaintances/etc. who are pregnant… there is such a thing as overshare, and the play by play updates on your gas/bloating/etc. is definitely an overshare
THANK YOU!!! I love kids but I am really annoyed by all of the naked belly pictures. WAY too much information. I know pregnancy is all consuming but I don’t need the play by play. I have actually hidden the status updates from those people because I am so tired of their constant updates.
I much prefer the pregnant belly pics to the toilet training updates and pics (no, I am not kidding).
All of this is only reinforcing my belief that Facebook can’t offer me anything that will enhance my life in any way.
I avoid facebook like the plague, but I don’t think there’s anything wrong with updating your status. Saying you’re engaged is not the same as posting a 65-photo album sharing the event with every stranger who cares to look.
If anything, this is much more like the old tradition of printing engagement notices in the newspaper. I say go for it. And, congrats on the engagement!
No one who really matters to you should hear your news on Facebook. I know that I would be hurt if one of my best friends or close relatives didn’t bother emailing me or calling me before posting the info on FB. If you feel that you would like to convey the news to a larger circle of acquaintances then that’s fine, but make sure you tell the important people in your life first. When I got engaged, I made it a point to call everyone who mattered to me. I wasn’t on FB back then, so posting that info was a non-issue.
I agree with everyone else; post on Facebook, but only after you have told your closest friends and family. For casual friends and acquaintances, it’s a great way to disseminate the happy news quickly.
I’m not on Facebook, and I can’t tell you how disappointing it is that so many people choose to ONLY share big news, photographs of children, etc., via Facebook. It seems really impersonal.
Congratulations!!! Post it. It is something fun to celebrate and to share with others. I personally love reading other people’s posts re: engagement (and I certainly peruse pics posted. Didn’t you look at at least some of the 65 photo album? The couple is cleary happy and excited, as they should be. Share in that with them, don’t judge).
I am generally a private person, and am not a, “Having Breakfast.” “Getting ready!” “Driving to work.” “At my desk.” “Cant wait for lunch!” kind of poster, but my fiance and I posted our engagement along with a few pictures. People were thrilled to share in our news and sent so many well wishes.
I agree with the others that everyone close to you should find out directly, but after all of the calls are made (and probably already have been) announce it to the FB world!
I would definitely post it, but avoid the play by play. I have several friends who recently became new moms and it seems like there are daily posts of what their babies did today. My kids are older and I remember the new parent excitement, but it gets a bit boring on a daily basis. Not as boring as the 5 generic replies to baby photos, “beautiful”, “so cute” etc. More creativity would be great!
I agree that telling your close friends personally first then posting is the best way.
I think FB usage is very generational — most users in their 20s generally don’t have a problem with finding out major life events on it, whereas older users remember the pre-FB method of telling people in person or on the phone (or even email). FWIW, my profile does not include relationship information and I did not announce my engagement on FB — those I wanted to tell, I told individually, and my casual “Facebook friends” don’t need to know. On the other hand, my fiance told most of his casual friends via mass text, so to each her/his own!
OTOH, I’ve had fun reconnecting with college friends and we’ve shared graduation, prom, etc. pictures of our kids on FB and enjoyed doing so. No one forces you to look at the 65 pictures of someone’s baby. Look at one, put a “like” next to it if you’re so inclined and move on!
I second this sentiment. Though definitely not old enough myself to have kids going to proms and graduating, it has been neat to hear about old friends from high school and college experience major life events – weddings, first babies, landing a kick-ass job, etc. Really, unless it’s close family/friends who should find out in person, what harm is your FB friends finding out that you’re engaged going to do? You’ll get some congratulations, well wishes, and maybe a few questions (how did he do it, have you set the date, etc.) which is entirely up to you to answer or ignore.
If you don’t like the play-by-play updates, there’s no reason that you can’t just announce your engagement and leave it at that. Constant updates as to stages of your engagement and wedding planning are not a requirement – share as much or as little as you’re comfortable with.
And don’t forget that (1) there’s no reason that you have to “friend” every single person who requests you to (honestly, if you don’t want a certain person to know that you’re engaged, why are you FB friends with them to begin with?) and (2) you can play with the privacy settings so that certain groups of people can see all, some, or none of your information.
I like reading about other people’s doings also. And I don’t care if casual friends know I’m engaged. I just don’t feel like announcing it en masse in a semi-public forum. To each her own.
What SUCL 3L said.
I don’t have FB and get really annoyed when I have to find out about friends’ life events from third parties who saw it on FB. If everyone in your circle uses FB regularly, then it’s fine to announce that way. I am in my 30s and it’s not the norm in my age group for everyone to be regular users. Even among my twentysomething friends/relatives, some use it only minimally.
I think it depends on how you use Facebook. I love FB, but I only friend people on FB who are good friends in real life, or were good friends at a particular stage in life – so not all friends from elementary school, but certainly those I’ve remained frineds with etc… and no casual aquaintances etc…
I also don’t ‘friend’ people from work, even though I have a couple of friends at work who are definitely out of the office friends. I just don’t want to risk a work vent finding its way into the office. And only my friends can see my wall, so I have no problem announcing things on FB, because my status update is no real difference than sending a mass email to my friends.
Congratulations! I agree with the general sentiment expressed above — post, but only after informing all the important folks in your life via phone or (personal) email.
I will also cosign the sentiment that every craving, gas bubble, and doctor’s appointment during your pregnancy does not need a status update.
I called close family, e-mailed close friends (there were too many to call, and I wanted to share the night with my fiance!), and posted on Facebook for everyone else who might care. If I had to do it again, that’s how I would do it. Having said that, LOTS of people were offended that they found out through Facebook, and it was just something I had to deal with. People I don’t even have contact information for were offended they didn’t find out in person. I don’t know what to say – do what you’re going to do, but realize that someone will be offended any way you do it.
As a college student who is routinely stereotyped by her elders (however few years elder) about, I’d like to take the opposite approach.
Of course you should not post this info on FB without informing your nearest and dearest first, but please please do post such life-changing information on FB if you regularly maintain a profile, or if some of your nearest/dearest do as well.
Using FB or any other social media is definitely a choice and should never be treated as otherwise. Yes, I have friends in college who lead happy and healthy social lives without FB, and some ascetics even survive without daily email checks(!!). On the other hand, if you have chosen to use it, although you needn’t use it to its fullest extent (being an early adopter is a silly status symbol I happily do without), please do use it as it is currently used: to update and inform friends and family about your social status/news.
My friends and I readily post pictures and links of all kinds of silly things (nothing salacious, even under privacy settings), because we prefer it to email chains. But I know that not all of my friends enjoy reading that, nor do I want all of my Facebook Friends (absolutely a different category) to do so, so we restrict viewing to certain people.
To me, a frequent-but-careful FB user, if you refused to post your engagement on FB but continued to update regularly and I found out about it later, I would perceive it as a snub. (Why doesn’t she want me to know?? Does she think I would hate them for it??) Obviously let the important people know first and send out your save-the-date cards, etc, but as soon as you want the news to be public — go ahead and make it PUBLIC.
In (rambly) conclusion, social media is not useless. 90% of people who use social media are useless. ;)
PS the NYTimes did an article a few weeks ago about generational attitudes towards privacy which upendscommon sense:
Interesting — I had not thought of that scenario (a user that updates regularly but that doesn’t post his/her engagement). I’d probably feel the same way — that it was out of character for a frequent user not to share a major life event. For non-frequent updaters/users, I don’t think it’s odd to abstain from posting about an engagement. Then again, my Personal Life Privacy Settings are set really high.
I’m only Facebook friends with people who I actually consider to be friends. Not acquaintances, etc. Cuts down on a lot of the issues. For these people, I do care about how their children’s toilet training is going (but pics may be a bit much), how their pregnancies are progressing, and what they had for breakfast. If you don’t like it, just de-friend people. As to the OP, I agree– tell close friends before announcing it on FB.
I am not a fan of this, but it could be because I’ve never found anything I like at J. Jill. Every time I stop in, there are some things I like on the hanger, but nothing there is made for my body type.
I really like this cardigan, but I have been burned at JJill before in that their things look work appropriate on the website or in the catalog, but then once I get them, they are too casual for work.
Love it :) Would work great for my casual office, both with my casual and semi-formal outfits.
I can’t see wanting to wear a cashmere cardigan in summer since I’d just be wearing it in the office if it is too cool. It just doesn’t seem at all practical for warmer climates.
To me, it would be more appropriate, since those warmer climates are usually air conditioned to extremes (My major worry when I go to Florida, for example, is whether I have enough cardigans/pants/sweaters to wear indoors)
Most places are air conditioned to 70-72 and people tend to wear sweaters/jackets that can be left at the desk and are easy to wash/dry. I don’t want to have anything for that purpose that needs to be dry cleaned, and you definitely don’t need cashmere in 70 degrees.
I’m guessing this doesn’t need to be dry cleaned, considering the fact that it’s a cotton/silk/cashmere blend. Handwashing would probably do the trick. Additionally, I can’t find the exact percentages of each material used, but I’m guessing it’s mostly silk, followed by cotton, with cashmere bringing up the rear (since that’s the order in which the materials are listed), so it might not be as warm as you’re thinking.
I’ve been disappointed with J. Jill. I always like things in the catalog or on the rack, but on me and in person they don’t work. The few things I have purchased I have been very disappointed in quality and durability. I like this in the photo and as styled by Kat, but I don’t think it’s enough to overcome what’s become a strong dislike of J.Jill on my part.
Thread hijack: does anyone have recommendation for work appropriate skirts that flatter those of us with a slight pot belly problem? I am tall and fairly thin, but I have a gut and cannot seem to find skirts that minimize, rather than hide, my tummy. Because of this, I only wear pants to work and am getting bored. Any suggestions appreciated. Thanks.
I have a belly as well (by belly I mean the area between my chest and my belly button, fyi), and wear a lot of pencil skirts that sit at my waist (belly button), and wear a top that doesn’t cling to my stomach, and that works for me.
My belly is more belly button to navel. I find that pencil skirts make it really visible from certain angles – as if the skirt hugs it. I guess thats life. Thanks though!
I have a tiny one post baby and i wear fitted untucked tops that hit at hipbone or higher – but being curvy & short waisted, I’d probably do that anyway!
I have one killer black wool pencil skirt (from DvF) that hides the pooch entirely even when shirts are tucked – I bought it a year ago, and I have no clue what it’s called as I snip off labels (sorry).
It’s the one featured on the cover of Instyle’s latest “what to wear” book – styled with a white shirt & red belt on the cover.
I have a belly from slightly above belly button to navel. I am a pear shape with a small bust and large hips. I tend to wear A line skirts wherever possible since they flatter. It needn’t be totally A line but even a very slight flair starting at the hips are good so that they skim the hips and flare out from there rather than curving back in. Pencil skirts are ok if they hang straight down from the hips.
I also find that pants can be dicey especially if the waist is higher. If the waist starts at the belly button and I wear a top thats not too clingy at the waist, it can work beautifully.
In general skirts flatter me more, but I tend to wear pants when (TMI alert!!) I’ve been too lazy to shave. :)
On a side note, wonder how when I lose weight, it goes from the bust (small enough as it is!), and when I gain it back, it comes back to my tummy and hips! :D
Kinda like murphy’s law – I’ll call it Sam’s law.
I have a similar body shape and totally agree that when I lose weight, the first place that I notice it is my bust. I’m at the smallest I’ve been in a long time, and my bust went from a 34B to a small 32B. Boo!
Lucky you! I wish I could lose from my chest:)
Confused — isn’t a belly button a navel? Confused, and suddenly flashing back on a lifetime of “navel” misuse…
You took the words out of my mouth. Belly button = navel here.
Yeah, belly button and navel are definitely the same thing. I have no idea what the above posters are talking about.
Yes! I just wikipedia’d “navel” in case a lifetime of correlating the two was incorrect… and in fact, yes, belly button = navel !
Ah. I think I was – incorrectly – using navel as a euphemism for, ahem.
Lets say belly button to below the belly button, shall we.
Don’t tuck in your shirts and wear your shells, etc. barely loose and long enough to hit juuust below the “pokey-outey” part. It’ll minimize it as long as your skirt and top aren’t tight/pulling across the tummy. And you could also try some light shapewear underneath for streamlining.
Just my $0.02, but I think that wearing a loose shirt hitting just below the belly is the number one way to start a pregnancy rumor.
Yes, a woman in my office does this, I think to try to minimize her own stomach area. It just made me wonder for months if she was pregnant (at this point, I assume she’s not or it would be the longest pregnancy ever). Loose, flowing clothing does not always have the intended effect.
I don’t mean empire waist loose fitting. Just one that instead of touching all the way around, the shirt should rest near your body. I’m thinking the way a shell or a sweater that fits close to the body but not Joan on Mad Men tight. Does that make sense? An empire-waist or other could pass for maternity wear style top would accentuate the little pooch.
What about spanx? Spanx is especially uncomfortable in the summer. Or a patterned skirt?
I think every tummy is different and the best way to camouflage it depends on your overall body shape. Personally mine looks best in high-waisted, dark-colored, lined pencil skirts with my top tucked in, because emphasizes where the shirt and skirt meet at the narrowest part of my waist and creates a straight, smooth line over my tummy and wobbly parts. Light-colored and unlined pencil skirts tend to cling and show unflattering wobbly parts.
FWIW, I’m an M shape with straight hips, an 8-inch difference between my narrowest and widest measurements (high waist and hip, respectively), and only a 2-inch difference between my bust and hip measurements. If you’re not sure of your measurements, I suggest taking an hour of your day to measure yourself and record them at http://www.myshape.com.
I meant minimize rather than accentuate.
Dont tuck in, and wear tops that camouflage.
Wrap tops would probably be good for this or things that are colorblocked (lighter on top and darker on the stomach).
This looks pretty shapeless – J Jill is not for me. My MIL (apple shaped) wears a lot of that stuff, but it ends up looking silly on me.
I like this, but with J.Jill, I wait for the sales, because they tend to discount a lot.
Slightly off-topic: I’ve read several comments along the lines of, “I keep a sweater or jacket at work to throw on when the air conditioning is too cold.”
Is this common? I can’t imagine one top layer that would go with all my summery outfits. Wouldn’t your co-workers notice you wearing the same thing all the time, since the top layer is the most visible? How do you keep it from looking ratty after a while? It seems to me like having a wardrobe of nice sweaters and bringing in the one that matched best each day would be more professional.
I’m not being critical here, I’m just wondering how it works. What am I missing? Please link to the perfect “goes with everything” office sweater so I can buy one! :-)
To be fair I wear a lot of black in my wardrobe, so I schlep a black cardigan in my work bag every day… Mine is a black v-neck from Ann Taylor that I got last year – to keep them from looking faded (I wash it once a week), I buy a new one each year (or when I find a nice, plain one on sale). The general style I tend to go for is like this one Silk/Cotton blend http://amzn.to/dpzu2m… and for $34, when I retire it in a year, I’m ok with it.
I keep a gray and a black cardigan in my office – while it may not be exactly true in my warped lack-of-fashion-sense brain, I think they go with everything!
I keep a black cardi that is a little thicker in my office and really only wear it when I’m alone in my office so my co-workers never see it
At least half the women in my office have an office sweater or pashmina. They tend to be black, black and white, or grey. My pashmina is tan and my cardigan is black so I figure I am covered!
Your coworkers are probably all wearing the same cardigan/blazer every day too. I’ve worked in so many places where this is commonplace and no one expects you to have 10 coordinating blazers/sweaters. At best people may have 2-3 blazers on a door hook. People typically only wear them when they are at their desks working and will put something more stylish on if they need to meet with other people.
Yep, same in my office. I can picture most of my female co-workers “AC is too high” sweaters off the top of my head and nobody really cares.
I’m probably not the most fashionable person out there (and thankfully, I don’t have to be, I’m surrounded by engineers) but I don’t think the cardigan has to match, per se. In fact, I keep one that deliberately doesn’t match and people always comment “oh, she must be cold,” and they try to turn down the ac. I have a turquoise Old Navy hoodie that matches NOTHING in my wardrobe and I wear it with the hood on sometimes. Also, I have the fortune of sitting DIRECTLY underneath a vent, so I usually wear my sweater at my desk or if I know I’m going to end up in a freezing conference room.
Careful with brightly colored sweatshirt at work! We have a young woman in our office who wears the same bright green hooded sweatshirt every single day. I know she wants to go to law school and hopes the firm will hire her, but the lawyers can’t imagine her in anything but her highly noticeable college wardrobe, and she doesn’t stand a chance. Dress for the job you want, not the job you have…
You should really mention this to her if you think her work is good otherwise.
Thanks for the tip! I’ll definitely keep it in mind, although I typically dress much more formally than the rest of my office (it’s business casual and half the men don’t even wear ties while I’m rocking dresses and heels). I can count the number of times on one hand how many times I’ve wore jeans to the office in the past 2 years. As one of the 4 female engineers in the staff of 50, the men need to know that it’s FREEZING.
If you’re an engineer, short of wearing bunny slippers to work, I don’t think the way you dress will hurt your career – and the bunny slippers would only hurt b/c wearing them might violate a project safety code.
A jealous lawyer who kicks her painful heels off under her desk
“Dress for the job you want, not the job you have…”
Amazing advice! I bet that can be extended beyond clothing to general behavior too, right?
I keep two cardigans on the back of my door: one ivory, one black. Been meaning to pick up a pashmina, am inclined to live dangerously and get a very bright color (red, hot pink, etc) since much of my wardrobe is dark neutrals.
The sweaters don’t get ratty because I don’t wear them frequently. They are there for the days when I’m unexpectedly cold. If my outfit needs a sweater, I incorporate it. But if I wear a skirt and blouse, then realize the AC is cranked, or I’m PMSing and freezing, then I’ve got back-up. Bringing a sweater daily just on the off chance of being cold is not realistic for me; I would forget.
I don’t worry about what my co-workers think. First, many of them have the same thing on their door. One is known for wrapping herself in her grey pashmina during long meetings in a particularly cool conference room. Second, these are neutral sweaters worn for cold. If they don’t match the outfit perfectly, I’m not worried. I’m sitting in my office working, often with the door shut. If I need to step out and the sweater doesn’t complement that day’s outfit, off it goes. IMO, this is a better option than wearing my windbreaker at my desk. :-)
“live dangerously” – love it =)
It’s nice to have a white summer cardigan to wear over let’s say a sleeveless dress. but I think this particular v-neck blazer slyle is aging for some reason. I think it’s nice to have a summer cardigan in a classic cardigan syle, button – front, high rounded neck, the usual ribbings. It will never look droopy.
That’s so frump. Even my 90 year old grandma would agree.
It looks like it was accidentally washed on the wrong setting and is now very sadly faded.
Thread hijack… I am going to a reception honoring women in diplomacy at an embassy tonight. There will be dinner as well as a speech by the ambassador. I’m very excited to attend this event, because I hope to eventually become a “woman in diplomacy,” so I really want to make a good impression. Has anyone been to an event like this before? Will it be like any other reception in Washington, or are there different expectations at an embassy?
Embassy: people will be dressed in business attire, probably slightly more formal than your average DC reception. There will be some flavor of the country hosting, not a lot. Is the dinner seated or buffet? Full dinner? If it’s buffet, prepare for the place to be pretty crowded so plan on how you’ll juggle plate, drink, purse if you can’t find a seat (I fail miserably at this). If seated, then the level of formality goes up. Focus on your manners, be on the more formal side. And good luck!
I go to things like this a lot. Wear a suit. It doesn’t have to be a boring, conservative interview suit – feel free to wear feminine accessories and/or a pretty color. Open-toed shoes are fine. Wear a top that you’re comfortable showing if you remove your jacket.
Also, be prepared to go through some sort of security.
I’m wearing a tailored black dress with a cardigan, jade necklace and black pumps today. I don’t have time to go home and change, unfortunately, so no suit for me. Thanks to both of you for your advice, though!
Oh, close enough. You’re fine.
I think it would be amazing if it were possible for Kat to “photoshop ” the pieces she finds with the styling she recommends. Like one of the posters above, I wouldn’t have given this a second look online but for Kat’s styling suggestions. i think it would also look great with navy. I don’t know if photoshopping is simply too time consuming or impossible for reasons of copyright or some other reason. I know there are sites where you can upload a photo of yourself and try various hairstyles/clothing colors. I wonder if there is one that allows you to see what this cardi looks like with other colors?
PS- Please forgive rambling/spelling errors. I am having a celebratory drink at the airport on my way to my rising 3L summer internship on the opposite coast (starting in 3 days). Wish me luck!
If you’re engaged but not making it public, do you refuse to wear a ring?
I’m surprized no one has differentiated btn posting/status update and chinging your info. The latter is totally lowkey, but let’s ppl who are paying attn know.
Not mentioning it somehow could easily be seen as a snub, like someone already said or as embarrassment. Change your relationship staid & then if you find yourself snickering or enraged over some service provider, no one wll question the post.
