April Jane Parade of The Adventure Begins! (Release 3)

Hellooooo pretty-pretties, it's already APRIL!

I dunno how that happened, but it means that I have another gorgeous Matilda Jane release to share with you, owwww! And I'm pretty sure.....this is my favorite release of spring so far. It is GORGEOUS! You must, must see this.

So let's do this thang.

Just to remind you, 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.

I didn't expect this first piece to hop to the top of my favorite's list, but somehow it did!

Matilda Jane In The Maze Top MJC Women's In The Maze

It's called the In The Maze Top, and it's gorgeously flowy and comfy. My very favorite part of it is the back, with its V-neck, and girly off-the shoulder style:

On the right you can see it with leggings & my hair's wildly cute both ways! Also, siiiiigh, I swear I will have better pictures someday. These past few months have not been generous with lighting.

Aaaaanyways. I'm wearing it in a small - it runs maybe slightly big, but I think I like it this size.

Next up is a crowd fav - the Picket Fences Top. This one caught my eye immediately (florals! stripes! polka dots! my fashion love languages), and in person it is soft and flowy and sweet.

In these pictures, I'm wearing the sample size which is a Large, so I have it pinned both times. I'm ordering this one in a small, so hopefully the fit works the way I expect it will. PS, don't miss the closeup of the floral in the lower right gorge!

Ooh, ooh! Another very-very fav is the vault dress, Always Flowers. It is sooooo pretty! The structured lower skirt, and the stretchy, flattering fitted pink stripes on top make for a perfectly girly, comfortable dress. I still can't get over the price on this one - it's like half of what MJ dresses usually go for! PLUS - the skirt fabric perfectly matches the vest from Friends Forever if you happen to have it ;)

LOVE! As of this writing, it's only available in XS, S & M so if that's you, don't wait! I'm wearing a small above.

My next favorite is actually a tween top - I haven't ordered it yet because I'm still debating on sizing - this is a 12 in the pictures, and it fits everywhere except the arm holes (so I'd say this runs large, and works really well as women's top!)

Matilda Jane Tween Trampolining Top

So cute, right? It's called the Trampolining Top, and it's available in sizes 8-16 (14 usually runs like a women's XS, and 16 like a women's S...but this one may even fit a medium in the 16.)

I really like this other tween tank, too, but I think this one is running a little more true to size:

Matilda Jane Tween Three Legged Race Tank

It's a little more sporty, and the tags that came with it said that the trim will intentionally fray a little to look a little vintage. Love that! This is called the Three Legged Race Tank, and if you love it in a women's size, I'd say grab a 16 for a size small! This sample I'm wearing is a 12.

Here's another beautiful girly top that's perfect for summer:

Matilda Jane Bocce Ball Top MJ Women's Yellow Shirt

The back though, right? (Heart eyes.) I love the color of this top with dark jeans and shorts. This one is called the Bocce Ball Top, and it runs a little large. I'm wearing an XS in this picture and I like the way this one fits, which is a size smaller than I normally get. If you're normally an XS and think this would be too big for you - no fear.

There's a tween version that's exactly the same except it's a lighter shade of yellow, and the size 16 also fits me perfectly! It's called the Tether Ball Top. Just...don't be like me and try it on with a black bra ;)

Here's a top that has surprised can even see in this picture, I've got my "oh, this is pretty cute," face on - ha! It feels very airy, girly, and summery. My friend said that it has a Lilly Pulitzer vibe to it - totally. Love that.

Matilda Jane Wandering Waters Top

It's called the Wandering Waters Top, and there's an almost identical tween version if you want to get matchy-matchy with this one. In the photo, I'm wearing a medium, but it's clipped in the back.

Next up (I know, can you believe how much there is for women in this release?!) is a very girly summery top, that can totally be worn in many different styles. I feel like this fits anything from boho chic, to casual...sort of country, to girly and dressy. It's super versatile and feminine!

There are a lot of lacy peekabo areas, and the fabric itself is a bit sheer, so it's a must-layer - I had a nude cami on under it in this picture.

Matilda Jane Morning Dew Top White

This one is called the Morning Dew Top, and I'm wearing a medium in the picture that I've pinned in the back.

Okay, who is ready for a summer maxi?

I give you, The Road Ahead Maxi Dress:

Matilda Jane The Road Ahead Maxi Dress

Warning for the short ladies: this puppy is loooong. I've seen pictures of people who have had it shortened and it looks great, so if you are willing to have it hemmed, you may be in luck! Here, I tied the bottom corner to take off some of the length, and it gave it a little something extra, too. I'm wearing this with a wedge heel...flat-footed or with flip flops, it's quiiiiite long.

This fabric is cool and stretchy and soft, and quite possibly one of the most comfortable things I've ever put on my body. It is, however, a bit clingy, so know that if you're hoping to hide lumps and bumps in this one, it'll be a little tricky. I've been told that this dress is very similar to the lularoe Julia (if that's your thing.........)

To really get the summer vibes going here, let me show you this dress paired with....the cutest MJ tote of all time.

MJ Blue Maxi Dress with Promo Tote


I squealed for hours when I first saw this tote and the ADORABLE POUCHES IT COMES WITH. OH YES.


Do you seeeeee those Kate Spade-y leather tassles on them?! They're also lined with water resistant fabric, which makes them perfect little makeup totes, or for stuffing wet bathing suits into on summer excursions. The interior of the tote is lined in the adorable summery flamingo fabric you see on the bottom right, and the exterior of both the tote and the pouches are made from an easy to clean coated canvas. Perfect for beach days, picnics, theme parks, playground outings, weekend trips - you name it, it'll serve you this summer.

The tote + pouches come together as a set for only $25 when you spend $175. Did you seeeee all that goodness up above?! That is not hard to achieve, belieeeeve me ;)

One last thing before I being totally bonkers with the girls hair accessories.


MJ really stepped up their hair accessory game this season! My younger sister suggested that this Bow You Over Knit Bow headband would look cute on anyone, and one of my friends said it would look cute and artsy and so....on it went. And I didn't hate it.

In fact, that picture above is a very good snippet of me, in a nutshell. The flowers, the pink, the bow, the curls, the girly-girly-girly everywhere. Someone tell me how I ended up with 3 sons? ;)
