Coral & Stripes (& Link Up)

May 31, 2018

Crisp black and white stripes with a bright bold coral are a summertime favorite combination of mine!

Chico’s asked me to try out their new Comfort Waist Luxe Utility Pants and I couldn’t say no to this fun Malibu Punch color or the comfy waistline!


Comfort Waist Luxe Utility Pants

Lightweight and comfortable, these ankle pants will be a summer favorite.  The waist looks like a tailored fit pant waist, but feels like a stretchy elastic waist band. Win/Win!  Pick your normal Chico’s size for a relaxed fit or go down one size if you prefer a more fitted look.  I’m wearing Chico’s size 00. Made of cotton, rayon, and spandex. Available in six colors.

Striped Sleeve-Detail Top

I’m all about stripes and we can’t go wrong with classic black and white. This pretty top adds fun circle cutout details on the sleeves.  Made of polyester and rayon, it won’t wrinkle and will be easy to wash.


Bold Silver-tone Necklace and Earrings

Loving this chunky modern-art inspired necklace and earrings.  You know Chico’s always has the best bold jewelry around!

Rounding out the look, my classic Rebecca Minkoff Mab tote, ASOS square sunglasses, and heeled gladiator sandals.




My fav photo from last week has to be this one …

    Such a great outfit, Dawn Lucy! I love this color combination, too. Those pants are darling and ever so cheerful!

    Dawn, I love these pants. I read your post about your dislike of shorts and I’m with you. I’m always looking for other options and I lean more towards pants than dresses due to the fact that pregnancies left my legs as road maps to I don’t know where! Anyway, thank you for hosting another great link up!
