Over recent years, I've developed a tendency to avoid color in my wardrobe. Olive is one of the very few exceptions. It's neutral, subtle, and versatile. Enter in Jamie + the Jones, a Nashville-based clothing studio that embraces the concept of color, crafting unique, one-of-a-kind, wearable works of art.
I discovered Jamie + the Jones through one of my nightly Instagram binges, and the Olive Blank Canvas Top immediately caught my eye. As with many of my purchases lately, I avoided my initial impulse to hit the "Order Now" button right away and gave myself some time to think about it. A few months later, after it had been restocked (yes... my heart sank a little when it sold out), and I was still coveting it, I decided it was time to make my move.
Jamie + the Jones, like many slow fashion studios, produces their garments made to order. While the wait can certainly be hard, I love the idea of owning a piece of clothing that was made just for me. It makes the entire shopping process feel more personal and special than simply grabbing a top off the rack at a department store.
Since its long-awaited arrival, I've been wearing the Olive Blank Canvas Top on repeat, usually pairing it with slouchy boyfriend jeans or a pair of black shorts. I decided to go with the M/L to guarantee a slightly looser, longer silhouette, and it fits like a dream.
And the fabric is amazing! I never thought I would be saying this, but raw silk has quickly become one of my favorite textiles. I was hesitant at first because I typically hate when clothes begin pilling, but when it's done intentionally, this raw texture is quite lovely. Not only is raw silk soft and durable, but it also gets better with age. What's not to love about that? Raw silk is also very easy to dress up or down, which is a must with a lean wardrobe.
Not sure what your color is? You're in luck! Jamie + the Jones recently launched #THECOLORCAMPAIGN to help customers find their J+J color and make better purchase decisions. The kit includes 12 swatches of every color they offer, and it's delivered straight to your mailbox.
