"Jess arrives wearing a bright, breezy travel outfit: an embroidered halter top, tie-dye-print skirt, underwear with a screen-printed butterfly, and braided sandals."
Beautiful outfit for Jess! The tiny embroidery on the halter top is great. The back and the neck closes with velcro. Her skirt has a tan lining so you cannot see through it. The sandals have a clearish strap that goes across the heal so that they stay on pretty well.
I really like the style of this halter top. It's nicer than the usual Velcro in back style of most AG tops. Her sandals are also great - I like them a lot better than Kailey's for sure! Looking at Jess, you'd imagine orange looking bad on her, but it looks great. I give it an A minus, only because the high waistline of the skirt bugs me. I always have to tug the halter top down a little bit to cover it, and Jess ends up flashing cleavage.
I actually wanted Jess and her world as soon as I saw her because of the bright summery and fun colors! I love Jess's meet set. The pieces are so versatile. The top goes great with jeans or shorts and I like matching tanktops with the skirt. And I have to say it- those underwear are too cute!
I wasn't a fan of Jess' meet outfit until I saw it in person. I purchased the complete meet outfit from a board member because my daughter likes it so much, and I'm so glad that I did!
The skirt is gorgeous - much nicer than I had imagined. Even the halter is cute although I don't usually love seeing the arm sockets. Unlike everyone else, I have to say I'm kinda meh about the sandals. It's a pain to get the strap lined up between the right toes. I'm not sure how my daughter will feel about them, but I think they're overrated.
The undies are cute and I love how the LE ones always have some sort of patterned tie in to the meet outfit.
I really love her meet outfit. The skirt is made with a really nice fabric. Not too thick and not too thin, lined with fabric and falls nicely on Jess. The halter top is embroidered with pretty flowers and closes with velcro. Again the fabric is really nice. I wasn't fond of the colour combination at first but it has grown on me. Bright and breezy it is. I like her sandals very much. They fit well and stay on because of a strap in the back. Her underwear fits well and has a pretty butterfly printed on one side. A+
