Happy Friday ladies. I haven’t fallen off the map but we skirted the edges for a few days. The drive home meant 4 days out of internet range and a surprise 10-hour road diversion because of grass fires. We finally dragged ourselves home Wednesday evening to 104 degrees and a broken air conditioner. I had plenty I wanted to share with you but didn’t have the energy to even look for my laptop.!
Yesterday was also crazy busy but I was anxious to see what I have missed. Note to self…don’t travel for this long during some of the biggest sales of the year.
I missed the Chico’s big semi-annual sale but they are giving a 40% discount on your entire purchase, including some new fall things that are trickling in. Sorry to report I am out of practice because my pictures are very blurry.
This new fall utility jacket is a gorgeous paprika shade with zip front and drawstring detailing at the elastic waist. I love the fit and fabric. The color is warm toned and not my best but would flatter a woman with warm coloring. I’m wearing it over this cotton slub V-neck tee and Zenergy So Slimming Ankle Jeggings. This knit denim jegging has lots of stretch and is super comfy. I like the tummy smoothing technology and they would travel beautifully.
Here are these jeggings again topped with the Splice Striped Tunic. I love the angles of the stripes and the soft Tencel fabric which will be very cool in hot weather. The jeggings come in petite but the regular fit me perfectly.
Here’s the V-neck slub top again, worn with the Scattered Stone Boyfriend jeans which I loved! They come in regular and petite. I am wearing the regular length which I like for the higher rise but they are 2 sizes too large for me. These would have gone home if they had had my size! The fabric is stretchy and soft without bagging out.
This is the Drama Sleeve Shirt in a soft pink stripe. The balloon sleeve tapers in at the wrist so it will stay out of the salad bar. I tied it at the waist because the jeans have a fuller leg. These are the Platinum Barely Bootcut in Indigo. Sadly they are a size too large for me so look fuller through the thigh than they should.
The colors are way off in this picture and the pants are huge, but you get the idea. Crisp Alabaster So Slimming Jeans embellished with clusters of jewels. The jeans are 3 sizes too large for me but I just had to try them on! I paired them with this teal (yes it’s really a stunning teal color) striped tie front Tee. I love how the stripes angled at the waist to give a slimming effect. I needed the petite version so the shaping would hit right at my waist. It also comes in 2 other colors and is a great twist on the classic.
This is the V-neck Slub Tin white and regular length Cotton Slub Cardigan worn over the Travelers Collection Striped Crepe Pants. These pants are called travelers for good reason…this fabric will never wrinkle and folds up small to pack. The slimming stripes and pull on waistband make this a sophisticated pant to wear for long trips or running around town. The cardigan comes in 9 colors, in both petite and regular. I needed the petite in this.
This Kimono Maxi dress caught my attention from the front window and didn’t disappoint. I love it’s short kimono sleeves. The pattern matches perfectly at the front seam which is a sign of quality. It’s a very lightweight fabric so although polyester, it will feel airy on hot days. I am wearing the regular length and need the petite which wasn’t in my store yet.
I have linked some new things coming into Chico’s you might like to get a peek at while they still have the 40% off sale.
I have lots unpacking and catching up to do. My laundry pile is epic and the mail pile isn’t much smaller. I’m excited to share several new brands with you plus some important new products that will help many of us lead more confident lives.
What have you been up to?
Thanks for reading ladies and have a great day!
