Summer Embroidered Tunic/Poncho

May 21, 2019

It’s almost summer! Oh okay, maybe we have another month until it officially starts … and we’ve been having unusually cold weather lately in San Jose… BUT I know summer is just around the corner and I’m getting my wardrobe ready for it!

I think every summer wardrobe needs a lightweight tunic top. This one from Chico’s is the perfect length and even cover my elbows, which I always appreciate! The linen and cotton fabric feels luxe and cool. It comes in a lovely orchid shade, as well as versatile white. It is a bit sheer, so I’m wearing a tank underneath. This tunic would make a cute swim cover up too. Hand washing is recommended.

I’m also wearing my Frame cropped flare jeans, favorites for every season this year. I added these clogs, which are as old as can be. I still love them, though they’re starting to look a little worse for the wear. I need to keep an eye out for some fabulous replacements,

I’m wearing my new “gyspy” earrings from Chico’s and the necklace is also Chico’s though no longer available. I’m carrying my raffia tote bag, Soft Surroundings from two seasons ago.

Are you getting any summer weather yet? I can’t believe that I’m preparing my finals for the school year … and wearing rain boots and a thick sweater while I’m doing it! No matter what the weather though, this teacher is on the final stretch of the school year and is super excited for summer!

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!
