Tell me if this sounds familiar. Earlier this month, my family and I went to a restaurant for dinner. It was warm and sunny outside (not hot, just pleasant). Inside the restaurant, there was a very noticeable temperature difference. The air conditioning was turned down way too cold. I had goosebumps the entire time I was there. I even ordered coffee to try to warm up. As we ate our meal, I noticed that several women left the restaurant and returned with jackets, sweatshirts, and even men’s sweatshirts to try to keep warm.
Another women named Jill Boehler experienced the same thing and created a solution — the Chilly Jilly. She came up with the the perfect wrap — lightweight, wrinkle-resistant, and it “keeps the chill out.” She wanted it to be small enough to be kept in a woman’s purse at all times so it could come to the rescue when it was needed. And, she wanted it to be casual and dressy as well as attractive and affordable to most women.
I was sent a Chilly Jilly to review, and I can tell you Jill has succeeded in everything she set out to do.
When I got mine, I immediately put in in my purse, so it would be there the next time I needed it. When we went out again, I was ready. I took my Chilly Jilly out from it’s little pouch, and although it had been folded, it was wrinkle-free. Somehow, this very soft, lightweight fabric is dense enough that the cold air conditioning does not blow through it. It kept me nice and warm, and it’ll be staying in my purse from now on.
It can even go in your beach bag and work as a sarong at the pool or beach!
