So, it's mid-March, and I never showed you my IRLs from the second MJ release! Mostly because the pictures I took were bad. The lighting was even worse than normal, and my mirror-selfies were looking awfully shabby. I suddenly decided I didn't care, and I'd like to show you ;)
Stay tuned until the end, though, because my little models, however, look adorable in my fav girls' pieces.
All Women's items are available in XS - XL, and you can find them all by shopping my website, HERE! I am 5'5" and typically wear a size 4-6, or a small in Matilda Jane.
Some of the biggest hype this release revolved around this green maxi:
Gorgeous, Grecian looking dress - the best part being the lace cut out at the bottom, I think. The only warning here, is that this is very long, and suited best for tall ladies, especially since the lace cut out makes for tricky hemming. I think it also looks best belted. Here's a picture of my mom in it (matching my cute little niece in her coordinating Backyard Oasis Dress):
There's for sure a lot of fabric there, and also - this sample was a Medium so my mom and I both had it pinned and it was still a little large.

My personal favorite from this release is this cozy, lace-trimmed sweater:
The detail in the lace is so gorgeous! I decided to order mine a size larger than I usually would because I wanted it to fit a little loose and cozy. I think it runs slightly on the small size, anyway.
Isn't it beautiful?? I love all of the lace detailing so much!!

My next favorite piece was a pleasant surprise - I don't normally grab for this style of top, but I loved it immediately, and could tell that its coloring would work on virtually any skin tone. My mom has much lighter features, than me, and she looked great in it, too.
So pretty, right? It looks great with jeans, dark dress pants, and even our leggings. It's a perfect halfway-dressy Easter top if a dress isn't really your thing!

This next top was also a bit of a surprise. It didn't seem very grown up to me when I first saw it in the lookbook, but when I got to try it on, I realized that the cuts looked really slimming and flattering, and I loved the girly, springy feel to it.

The final top from this release matches the tween top from February, but its hem ruffle is made from the same material as the In Full Bloom Dress. It's a very silky, light, comfy top, and looks really cute paired with the tween top!

Next up is a vest! I didn't match this as well as I could have in the short amount of time I had for this little Jane Parade, but for the sake of the picture, I paired it with the Kettle Tee from last season.
It's a simple, marled-looking sage green vest that will pair with a lot for spring!

And finally, the Easter dresses! This first one's fabric is gorgeous - I love these pink and orange roses SO much! It has a really interesting neckline, with almost a built-in choker for a collar.
To give this dress more shape, most people have been belting it. I'd also suggest wearing our Spoonful of Sugar Dress Extender under this one to make it a little more modest.

Finally, was this dress...and I'm showing it to you simply because it was pretty beautiful, but it's actually already sold out! It went really quickly, along with the tween sizing of the same dress. I DO still have my sample available (which is a Large), so if you happen to be interested in that, do let me know!
I can't direct you to it since it has sold out, but it is called the Where the Grass Grows Dress, and I do have my Large available if you'd like it!
To give you an idea of all of the Easter pieces put together, here's a group shot of my pretty models:
I love how it all goes together so gorgeously! Check out this little sweetie pie on her full-on Easter get up! How cute is she??
She's wearing the Tiddlywinks Dress and diaper cover with the Neighborhood Garden Socks.
My very favorite girls piece from this release is the Simon Says Tank. It's one of those versatile pieces that can start as a dress, and grow into a tunic, and eventually, the tank it's meant to be. It has already started to sell out in the bigger sizes, but there's plenty left for little ones - a 4 or 6 will grow with your toddler for years!
She's wearing a size 2 as a dress - how cute, right?? This also looks adorable with white tights, or with our Start Here Straightees.
This is another one of my favorite girls' outfits...it's so springy, so cute, and a little bit vintage looking!
This was such a popular outfit, that the top is almost totally sold out! It's called the Front Porch Top and it's now only available in a 2, 12, or 14. The pants are our Skipping Along Leggings, and the matching headband is the Follow Your Heart Headband.
Along those same mod lines, are these adorable polka dot bennys:
I LOVE the lacy layers on these bennys! And they match the jacket from February, which makes this really retro looking outfit. They look just as adorable with a simple pink or white top, though, and that combo is another fav of mine from this line!
Find them here: Balance Beam Bennys
If you're already familiar with Matilda Jane and love a good classic MJ piece, this pearl is so gorgeous! We paired it with the Leapfrog Shorties (I LOVE the color combo on those!) and the Heritage Rose Headband for the cutest little outfit!

And finally, the sweetest little knot-toppy overalls, trimmed with lace on the hems and the bib pocket:
It looked so perfectly adorable with just a pink little tee! You can dress these up or down, and they look adorable either way! Another fav piece!
