Neutrals in classic shapes allow me to personalize my looks with my favorite accessories, but they also work well with each other. About 90% of my wardrobe consisted of solid classic shapes in navy, black, white, denim, and gray until I recently added a new color.
Coral and turquoise are universal bright colors that work well with every skin tone, but they also work well with neutrals. When I saw that Chico’s had come out with a group of new items featuring a coral color they call “Malibu Punch,” I made my first purchase from them in a long while. It is great to see some classic shapes in solid colors offered again. The sizing at Chico’s works for me, but their styles have been too trendy or memorable for my taste in the past few seasons. (Please note that I have no professional affiliation with Chico’s, but I have shopped with them for many years.)
This week, I will show you some of the ways I have styled the new pieces I added for Spring and Summer. Today it’s the girlfriend ankle pants in Malibu Punch. The white Microfiber Contemporary tank top is also from Chico’s. The Ruby Rd stretch denim jacket is from Belk. The shoes are by Sam Edelman. The bag is several years old by BCBG via T.J.Maxx.
Beautycounter added a beautiful new red lip color this month. It is the perfect color to wear with Malibu Punch! The lipstick is called Beautycounter Red, and you can find it here (I am a Manager for Beautycounter, so I will receive a small commission if you purchase from this link).
The weather on Saturday was beautiful, so Mr. Mickey and I drove across the mountains to Asheville to do some shopping for him and have dinner at The Lobster Trap. After riding around town in a convertible, my hair was wilting.
