It’s that time of year when Chicos and many other retailers are starting to mark down their summer merchandise.
Most of these items are marked down.
Black and White with a Pop of Red
This look combines my favorites – classic black and white with a pop of red. In this picture I am wearing the tank out. It’s tunic length.
Touch of Cool Leaf Print Tank (size 2) | DeFine Me Denim White Crops (size 2.5) | Beaded Drop Earrings (similar from Amazon) | Beaded Coil Bracelet | Fringe Thong Sandals | Wreath (10% off until 7/31/22)
This picture shows you how long it is in the back – plenty long enough to cover what you want to cover.
You could definitely do a front tuck with this tank. That is not usually my favorite look on me. So instead I use these handy scarf rings from Amazon to cinch up one side. This defines my waist a bit and I like the look.
Then to change it up, I added my trusty denim jacket. Because even when it’s 107 in Houston, the AC blows COLD inside and you need a little something to cover your arms. I have had my denim jackets for several years and they have been the best investment pieces. I wear them year round.
I like this tank especially because you can wear it year round. In the fall, pair it with black pants and a black or red blazer. Black and white is a canvas for so many different looks.
I’m wearing the red beaded earrings I received with my Chico’s order. They must be sold out because I couldn’t find them anywhere on their site. But I found this pair exactly like them (and a lot cheaper) on Amazon.
This Beaded Coil Bracelet is so pretty. It’s all one piece and would go with so many things. For the sale, bracelets are 2/$45 or 3/$49.
These Fringe Thong Sandals in Flame Scarlet will add a pop of color to any summer look.
Flaming Red – Two Ways
For this look, I kept the white crops and and fringe sandals and added the Pima Floral Pocket Tunic in Flame Scarlett.
Added accessories were a Kendra Scott necklace and earrings that were in my closet.

This look keeps the same Pima Floral Top in scarlet and adds the So Slimming Girlfriend Pom Pom Crops.

Here’s a look at the pom pom embroidery detail on the crops. So cute.
The Sea Shell Slide Sandals also come in black. If you’ve read my blog for a while, you know that my shoe size is 8WW. These slides DID NOT fit me well. However, if you wear a regular M width, these will be just fine for you.
The Wicker Braid Hoop Earrings came in this set of 4 from Amazon. One of my favorite purchases of the summer. As of today, this set of 4 earrings is just $12.99. Since this whole wicker/rattan/straw thing is what I consider a TREND, I like that I can add a trendy item to my outfit without breaking the bank.
I’ve worn all three of these earrings all summer. And gave the one with the tassels to my daughter. Everybody wins!
