Spring has arrived. Well, sort of. It doesn't officially feel like birds are chirping and spring breezes are blowing, but Spring has officially (according to the calendar that runs the world) has arrived. As a kid, I used to love Spring because it meant Easter and Easter meant a new, fancy, frilly dress for Easter Sunday!

Keep reading for all the details on this look, more about J.Jill and why I think they are a secret weapon in the plus industry and some style tips and tricks (per the usual).
Listen, this crazy NY (read: unfortunate global warming) weather is wild. And while some people are looking for snow and winter wonderlands, I'm over here leaving my legs bare and rocking tunic dresses with no jackets/layers or anything! I'll take it (for now at least).

A few weeks ago I spent a whole day with this crew (and a whole bunch of others) filming a holiday promotional #OwnYourCurves video for Full Beauty.
