Jill & Myriam


You may remember Jill and Myriam from a StitchUp last August. Well, they’re back in town again for another short visit with family.

I met Jill seven or eight years ago, and have admired her style since day one. She’s always put together great outfits and it’s been interesting to see her style shift over the years. And since Myriam came along, it’s also been fun to see how Jill dresses her.

I am really enjoying that the outfits seem basic, but have careful layers of interest. Jill’s got that ultra vibrant dress that is balanced with the black tights and exceptional leather jacket. At first glance the dress looks to be pretty standard, but there’s a lot of texture and pattern at play — the contrast of texture between the leather and soft lace-like fabric of the dress is a really smart touch.

One thing that Jill has always been good at is attention to detail and flourishes; little additional pieces that kick her outfits into high gear. It’s no different here with the scarves chosen for Myriam and herself — both tie into the looks so well, and lend that little something extra.

Little Myriam has on a pair of really awesome slip-ons with that frilly dress with the fantastic filigree pattern under the crisp denim jacket. Cute!
