When this post goes live, I will be in Florida with the brand Chico's. We're celebrating the brand's 35th anniversary and I am so honored to have been invited. Be sure to follow my Instagram Stories to see the behind the scenes from the event. There's a very good chance you will see this pinstriped ponte coordinated set on me!
Top: Pinstriped Ponte Tee c/o Chico's (size 2) | Pants: Pinstriped Ponte Tapered Ankle Pants c/o Chico's (size 2) | Scarf: Leopard Scarf c/o cabi | Earrings: Zara (sold out; similar concept) | Bag: Clare V (same bag in other colors, another green clutch) | Shoes: ComfortView
When I was invited, I asked if I could receive some of Chico's New Arrivals to wear to the event. I have Chico's in my closet, but nothing brand spanking new. I asked for the red outfit seen in this post, and this coordinated set. Clearly, I have a thing for coordinated sets this season! At the time when I ordered this set, the pants weren't available in petite. I would have done better with petite, and if I want to wear the top untucked, maybe a size smaller in the pants. But I like this look, it's like a jumpsuit but since it's two pieces it's a more custom fit.
And hello ponte! Super comfy, stretchy, but polished enough for the workplace. The pants have real pockets, the top looks cute tucked in or untucked. I may get the pants in the smaller petite size because I think I'd wear the heck out of this look with an untucked top and a pair of pointed toe flats and a long pendant necklace!
The scarf looks familiar, doesn't it? It's the same one I wore in yesterday's post! It's such a neutral – not too warm, not too cool, and not too bright that it goes with everything. This look needed something at the waist and I love the mixing of patterns (leopard print is a neutral!).
These earrings I bought from Zara a couple months ago. I didn't love them or love a dress I ordered and packed everything up to return… and somehow the return box got lost in the shuffle and when cleaning out my trunk I found it under a blanket. Ugh. I still don't like the dress and will be likely putting it on Poshmark soon, but the earrings I liked far better the second time around. In fact, I think they're the perfect finishing touch for this ensemble!
