Happy National Girlfriend Day with Chico’s!

July 31, 2019

Here’s to our girlfriends … the ones who lift us up and support us. There’s nothing like a heart-to-heart talk … or a belly-busting laugh … with the girls.  One of my very favorite brands Chico’s reached out to help me celebrate National Girlfriend Day, August 1st.  It couldn’t be a more perfect collaboration because Chico’s is just like a good girlfriend: supportive, flattering, and empowering!  They are a brand that really cares about its customers, employees, bloggers and the community.

National Girlfriend Day with Chico's


This post is sponsored by Chico’s, a brand my readers know I adore!


A Celebration of Girlfriends!

 Chico’s is all about women supporting women, so of course it makes sense that the brand would want to celebrate National Girlfriend Day!  It’s no coincidence that I’ve met some of my favorite fellow bloggers turned girlfriends through Chico’s events.  The Chico’s team knows how to bring women together to share and celebrate!

Readers who know me well, either in real life or through the blog and social media, know that I’m a huge proponent of girl time!  Time to chit chat in the way only good girlfriends can is one of life’s best simple pleasures.  And I’m so grateful to say that the universe has always gifted me with incredible girlfriends.  Yes, there’s an old stereotype about women not getting along with other women, but I think that’s actually rather rare. Most of the women I know love, support and enjoy each other!

It’s also a fun fact that Chico’s has a collection of denim called “Girlfriend Jeans.”  I love that!   Girlfriends treat you well and make you feel great, just like these comfortable and flattering jeans.

Fun & Fashion,

About the blog: Fashion Should Be Fun is me talking to you, other middle aged women like me who are over 40, but not over fashion.  We still want to look beautiful and stylish.  We still want to have fun with trends.  And we don’t need anyone giving us rules, because we’re all different. We all have own shapes and bodies, parts we’d like to cover and parts we still don’t mind showing off a bit.  This is a place for me to share my love of fashion with you, style ideas, tips, trends, and inspiration. I know how liking the way we look can translate into confidence and energy. I know we have so much life left to live and so much adventure ahead of us. Let’s show the world you’re never too old to have fun and be fierce!

    I have never hear of A Girlfriend Day before but I like the idea. We should appreciate our girlfriends who are there for us and those that we could trust. Having said that, I really like all the elements of your outfit, Dawn Lucy. Chico does make lovely clothes that makes us look happier.
