All In This Together

Alright...who’s ready for the preview of another BRAND NEW item going in our shop on 11.21.16? It’s the “all in this TOGETHER” gray t-shirt!

We all need go-to shirts that we can grab out of our closets and just GO. This shirt embodies the message that we try and live by. This is the reason we write songs, and share stories on stage and in our blogs...because we need to be reminded that we are all in this together and we’re not alone. We think loneliness is the worst disease and that’s why we want to help you share and wear the message that everyone has a place. That we are more similar than we are different and that we really are all in this together.

This is our more classic t-shirt style. It’s unbelievably soft, a great color gray tri blend and fits true to size. It’s doesn’t hug through your mid-section (praise hands) and is not a crop top (more praise hands.) This shirt is adorable with jeans, leggings and soft enough to sleep in.

We hope you are excited for the launch of our new shop...cause we sure are! There will also be other items available...so don’t forget. Mark your calendars. 11.21.16 the shop goes live.

Much love,

How Cute Are Kangaroo Pockets?

YES! Time for another NEW shop item preview. Our next item that will be available 11.21.16 is this amazing, heather black, raw neckline “Quit Worrying” sweatshirt with a kangaroo pocket.

The best thing about this piece is just exactly how versatile it is. You can pair this with jeans or leggings or workout pants. Who doesn’t love clothes that you can work out in and then also go to grocery store in and feel good about yourself? YESSSS!   

The words are the title to a song we wrote when we were deep in the cycle of worrying & doubt. We were in a tough season and made a list of all of the things we were worrying about and decided (kind of jokingly) that we were just going to quit it. We started writing a song, with the list of things we had just quit and it slowly became our new anthem. It was the message we needed to be reminded of DAILY...ok, sometimes hourly. Can you relate? If you want to read more details about the message or hear the song click here.

This was our best-selling design that we launched last year and completely sold out of...so we knew it was a message you were excited about wearing and sharing :)

Let’s talk about the actual fit. We promise you will LOVE this one. Not only is it super cute & comfortable, the neckline brings it back to being stylish and kinda sexy. It’s eco-fleece on the inside which makes it soft and cozy without bulking. It fits true to size and works well with a tank underneath or sports bra.

Don’t forget. Mark your calendars. 11.21.16 the shop goes live.

Much love,

Alive & Showing Up (Best EVER) Tee

Time for another NEW shop item preview. Woop woop! Our next item that will be available 11.21.16 is this adorable, slouchy scoop neck  “Alive & Showing Up” t-shirt.  

We are SO EXCITED about this shirt. The words are lyrics from our song “Quit Worrying” and it is a reminder that each day is a gift. Life is hard you guys. Full of ups and downs...hard times and good times but each day we have a choice to say, yes. Today, I’m alive and showing up. It’s a reminder to take inventory of all of the wonderful things you have in your life and shift your mindset to gratitude.

Let’s talk about the fit of the shirt. Who loves shirts that do not utterly and completely hug your body? (both our hands are raised!) This shirt is a dream for so many reasons. One, it’s a scoop next which is sleek and feminine without showing too much cleavage. You can wear it as a traditional scoop neck or off one shoulder. This t-shirt is in Charcoal (aka a heather black) which just happens to be this season’s HOTTEST color trend. The sleeves are a little longer than the traditional t-shirt length (which who doesn’t love that?) It’s more of a square fit in the body instead of form fitting.

This is the shirt to wear with leggings, a long tank and boots or with jeans and converse. Or throw it on to go to your favorite workout or yoga class. It will make you feel confident, while being comfortable all while spreading a message that you are a part of a vital community...no matter where you find yourself.

Don’t forget. Mark your calendars. 11.21.16 the ENTIRE shop goes live.

MORE LOVE sweatshirt!

It’s finally here and time to show you what we’ve been working on. 

Our plan was to just reveal the design of this sweatshirt today. But, we've decided to make it available for pre-order today because we feel like this is a message we all need right now. It's been a crazy 48 hours and no matter what, we all need MORE LOVE to beat the hate. 

Our first new item available for pre-order is this super soft, eco-fleece “we need MORE LOVE to beat the hate” sweatshirt & you can pre-order it RIGHT NOW here. (It's the only item from our shop that's available for pre-order.)

First, let’s talk about the message. The words. We wrote the song “Same Side” after the tragic Orlando shooting earlier this year. Our hearts broke with the weight of all the hatred in the world. We prayed, we wept and we wanted to respond in some way. We wanted to do more. So, being songwriters, we wrote a song. You can listen to it here and we hope that it resonates with you and reminds you that we are ALL on the same side. The response was so overwhelming because you guys felt it too. We all felt the weight of the sadness but the hope was palpable. The line that everyone kept re-tweeting and sharing was “we need MORE LOVE to beat the hate” and that’s what lead us to putting it on this sweatshirt.

We want to mobilize YOU with the message of releasing MORE LOVE into the world. 

Go the extra mile for a friend. Buy coffee for a stranger. Small acts of great kindness will change us.

Now let’s talk about the actual material & fit of the sweatshirt. It’s so soft people think it’s cashmere. No really, it even looks that good. It is a more traditional sweatshirt with a crew neck but not a tight (feels like you’re being choked.). It has detail stitching that makes it look classy. It’s warm but not bulky. It can be worn on it’s own or with a button up underneath (more like a sweater), with a tee under it or a long tank with leggings.

We let a friend try on the sweatshirt before we had it printed and she wore it that evening and then asked if she had to give it back...haha...we promise you’re going to love this sweatshirt. We want it to give you confidence, comfort and be a part of our community.

Pre-order NOW.

Don’t forget. Mark your calendars. 11/21/16 the ENTIRE shop goes live.

Much love,

J&K

When The Doorbell Rings

We think you deserve to feel confident ALL the time. Even if you’re lounging on the couch at home or walking into your favorite yoga class--your clothing should always make you feel confident. 

Ever been watching TV and someone rings the doorbell and you think crap--I’m in my “comfortable” clothes...I can’t answer the door like this! HA! Well, you’re not alone. We’ve definitely been there. That’s why we love these new items in our shop: they are comfortable enough to be your “comfortable” clothes and cute enough to answer the doorbell in. Win, win. 

Also, they’re not just for lounging. You can pair any of our items with leggings, boots and a flannel and have a perfect fall outfit. Or skinny jeans & converse...or yoga pants. Which brings up another good point. Spend money on one item, but that one item can be worn multiple ways and have multiple uses. Can you say cha-ching! Saving money on a versatile piece in your wardrobe. Another win, win. 

We can’t wait to show you guys the ACTUAL items. Stay tuned. Shop goes live 11/21/16. Our email subscribers get early access to the shop, so make sure you’re signed up. www.jillandkate.com/signup or text JKJK to 444999.

PS. Here's another sneak peek of the an item below...

Comfort, Confidence & Community

As a lot of you know, we love comfortable clothes. :) It doesn’t matter if we are on a red carpet, standing in line at the post office or on a 15 hour plane ride...comfort is soooooo important to us. At a fancy event it can be a bit more difficult, but for everyday life, comfort is always possible. Yet, we don’t want to sacrifice looking cute & stylish for comfort, and sometimes that’s a hard balance to find.

For years we’ve wanted to create items that are comfortable, make us feel confident, and clothes that we would actually love wearing. We’ve never really done that before. Yes, we’ve had different merchandise for tours or specific albums, but we’ve never had a line of clothing that’s for anyone and for everyday. Until now.

On Nov 21st we are going to be launching our brand new Jill and Kate SHOP--and the items that will be housed in this collection are all items that we have worn and are wearing. We tested out each item. Literally. We wanted all the items to be the best in quality, be super comfortable and there was one more important component we wanted in our items: We wanted the items to be community building. The messaging on these items comes from our song lyrics and life mottos we try to live by.

We might not know about hout couture, but we do know about wanting to feel confident all the time. We wanted these items to make YOU feel confident, while not sacrificing comfort...all the while spreading a positive message in your community.

We think you are going to love the collection and we hope it makes you feel confident, comfortable and a part of our community. Shop goes live 11/21/16. Mark your calendars.

Much love,

J&K
