Chilly Jilly Review
I was not financially compensated for this post. I received a sample of the product for review purposes. The opinions are my own, based on my personal experience with the product.
We have been experiencing a long-lasting heat wave here in NY this summer. Usually our heat waves come and go, but currently we’re in some weird weather pattern where it’s been hazy, hot and humid for two straight weeks now. I can’t wait for it to break! The hot weather means wearing less clothes when we’re out, which can sometimes pose a problem when we go to heavily air-conditioned places. I usually keep a light jacket in the diaper bag for the boys, but never really carried anything for me because I didn’t want to weigh myself down any more. Now I have a solution for that thanks to Chilly Jilly.
I received a Chilly Jilly Elite Wrap for review in the color spring green. The color of this is fantastic – I think it works well for all seasons, and would look especially nice against a little black dress. The microfiber and spandex material is lightweight, yet heavy enough to keep you warm. I really noticed a difference in this wrap compared to others I have that really don’t provide much of a barrier from the cold. I like that this style works for dressy occasions as well as casual ones. Another plus, it comes in it’s own carry bag, so when you’re not wearing it you can just fold it up into its bag and throw it in your diaper bag, purse, carry-on, etc. The material is wrinkle-resistant so you don’t have to worry about looking messy when you pull it out of its bag. The Chilly Jilly Wrap sells for $35 on their site.
Chilly Jilly offers the warmth and comfort of a lightweight wrap that has so many uses. The wrap, the oversized wrap and the blanket they offer all have so many uses – from a traditional shoulder wrap, to a beach coverup, to a blanket for the kiddos. They all come packed in their own carry bag, making it easy to throw one in your car, your purse, or in your beach bag. Jill Boehler, the designer and founder of Chilly Jilly, set out to create the perfect lightweight, wrinkle-resistant wrap that did the job of “keeping the chill out” while also being small enough to be kept in a woman’s purse at all times so that it could come to the rescue at those unexpected times. She wanted it to be casual and dressy as well as attractive and affordable to most women. I think she did a fantastic job! These wraps would make a great gift for any woman in your life.
