What do you think about this season’s favorite fashion statement?  I’m speaking of ruffles, and I’m seeing them on everything.  It seems the darling fabric for this look is the blue and white pinstripe, but I like something a bit different just to be, well, different.  This bright orange number from Chico’s answers the call.  It reminds me a bit of those peasant tops we wore in the 70s.  Remember those?  Although it wasn’t specifcally designed to be worn off the shoulder, I really like it that way.  It added a touch of elegance and somehow reduced the fullness of the top, which suits my shorter body better.  Orange is such a great summer color as well – a bit more sophisticated than its cousin yellow, but every bit as suited to the season.

I’ve found cargo pants are a great casual option for summer.  They’re a nice alternative to shorts, and in this light stone color they go with just about every summer top.  This pair from Chico’s is very soft, with a relaxed, comfortable fit.  I’ve dressed them up a bit with the ruffled top, and I suppose they could be dressed up even more, as counterintuitive as that may seem.  Maybe I’ll give that a try just to see.  🙂  Whenever a piece in my closet can do double- (or triple-) duty , I find it even more appealing.  It’s also an opportunity to be a bit more creative.

I’ve been talking a lot about Chico’s lately.  They’ve been wonderful to our Fierce 50 Revolution and they have some truly beautiful pieces in store.  They are also having an excellent sale in stores and online, featuring discounts up to 70%!  The sale is definitely worth checking out!
