These colorful, machine washable pieces from Chico’s will add chic, summer charm where ever you go. I love these first two Printed Surplice Tops–which are the same design but different colors–because they’re long sleeved, yet open and airy so you’ll stay cool. I especially love that they’re longer in the back, so they cover part of your bum, and they float when you walk. So fun!

They also come in Regular and Petite!

Pair this turquoise top with some So Slimming Sateen Girlfriend Ankle Jeans in White. They sit on your waist and have Chico’s exclusive “Hidden Fit” technology that slims and smoothes the tummy, plus they come in Regular and Petite. Again, machine washable!

Or here’s the same top in a different color. Wear it with Chico’s Comfort Waist Straight-Leg Pants in Tonga Navy, also in Regular and Petite, with a hidden elastic waistband for extra comfort! Machine washable!! Love that!!

Now all you need are some fun, colorful Beaded Fan Chandelier Earrings.

Or perhaps you’d like to wear simple gold hoops along with this Short Gold-Toned, Textured Pendant Necklace and this Gold-Tone, Textured Circlet Stretch Bracelet. They’re classy, you can wear them with everything, and the prices are too good to pass up.

And what about this fun, summer Beaded Camel Clutch? Perfect for dinner, a date or margaritas on your girlfriend’s patio!

Add some sandals, and you’ll have an elevated casual look perfect for most any occasion!

    • I’m happy you like them, Renee! Nearly every woman I know needs at least part of her bum covered! Thank you for reading and commenting. It helps me feature clothes I think you will like. Brenda

  1. I’ve recently become a convert to Chico’s. With some careful editing, they have some wonderful pieces – not everything, obviously, but great, affordable fashion for baby boomer women.

    • I totally agree with you, Lynda. Chico’s has a lot to offer women over 50. Their clothes are stylish, easy to take care of and we don’t break the bank when we shop there. Love that you stopped by! Thanks so much, Brenda

  2. I love this turquoise top, especially since it’s shorter in front and won’t end up looking like a maternity top on me.
    I also need another black Travelers tank… mine died after 15 years! Great quality clothes, great find, heading that way today. Thank you!

  3. Love the turquoise top (one of my favorite colors) and will pin this post! I’m now following you on FB and visiting you from Thursday Favorite Things, where I shared “Summer Means Time for Reading.”

    • Hi Nancy! I have an injured finger and am barely getting my blog out this week. I’ll make a note to see what you’ve suggested to read. Thanks so much for stopping by, Brenda
