TUESDAY INSIDE THE DRESSING ROOM TRY-ON HAUL WITH CHICOS

Over 40 Fashion Blogger, Tania Stephens is doing a Tuesday Try-On Haul from Chicos for May 20

My daughter and I went shopping last Friday, and we decided to do a try-on haul from Chicos. The weather was nasty, so we couldn’t take photos outside, and we opted for the next best thing. When I say the weather was terrible, I am not joking. On our way home, we were going to stop at Sam’s Club to grab some groceries, but a Tornado Warning Alert hit our phones, so we turned around and headed home. We were lucky that a tornado didn’t happen, but we did get hail.

This is what the sky looked like as we started home. We were hoping that the blue skies would stick around since that was the direction we were heading.

That didn’t happen, and this was what the sky looked like when we were a couple of miles from the house. I was happy that we made it back before the rain and hail started!

I think everything that I picked for this post is casual and relaxed. Fashion that looks great but is casual and perfect to be worn every day. These outfits will look great for shopping, having coffee with a neighbor, or having lunch with a friend.

As soon as I walked into the store, this No-Iron Linen Confetti Print Shirt caught my eye. The bright colors speak my language, but the print is not overwhelming. This shirt is 100% linen, but it is in a no-iron linen fabric, so it won’t wrinkle like the linen we used to wear. I’m wearing a size 1, which is perfect for me. I stacked two Warm Multi-Seed Bead Stretch Bracelets for extra color, and I wore a Mother’s Day Neutral Bracelet Set c/o Chicos to match the shirt’s background.

I loved the mirror in the background. That gives you an idea of how the outfit looks and the length of the items. The Button Hem Crop Jeggings have a great button detail to stand out. These jeggings will catch people’s eye; they’ll notice that you are a fashion-oriented person. Details make all of the difference in making a blah outfit look stylish. I’m wearing a size .5, which I was afraid would be too tight, but they fit me great.

I loved the jeggings, and I thought I would style them with another shirt. The Confetti Shirt was worn loose and untucked, but I decided to do a front tie with this shirt to show the jeggings better.

The Hummingbird Striped Linen Shirt is whimsical and so adorable. I love the pale pink and white stripe, but the tiny hummingbirds make this shirt. The fabric is the same no-iron linen, and I am giving this a huge thumbs up since ironing isn’t on my agenda. I’m wearing a size 1, and the fit is great with no gaping buttons.

I was so busy showing you the button detail of the Button Hem Crop Jeggings that I forgot to tell you that these are pull-on. Like linen fabric, pull-on pants have improved over the years. Used to, you would have puckers all around the jeans, and they made you look frumpy and older. The pull-on styles now can even fool you into thinking they button. These are comfortable, and they look great.

I love this casual outfit. It is a perfect beach outfit, but it will be great for all spring and summer. This outfit would look great for a post I’m working on about Coastal Grandma style. I’ve ordered the clothing, so I’ll share that with you as soon as I can take photos. All you have to add to this outfit is a bucket hat, and you will be Coastal Grandma approved, which is a good thing.

This navy Tassel Trim Pullover is adorable, and I love the unique detail of the tassels. I’ve seen tops with tassels at the hem, but this top has tassels at the neckline, the hem, and up the sides. Plus, just for good measure, the sleeves have an eyelet trim. I’m wearing a size 1, and it is perfect.

I can’t tell you how much I love these Striped Pull-On Button Hem Crops! These are 100% lightweight linen, so you will stay cool and comfortable this summer. Everyone who doesn’t like wearing shorts needs to look at these crops. They will keep you cool and cover your legs at the same time. I wore these with navy, but they would also look great with a bright color, like pink, red, or green. I’m wearing a size .5, and they fit great.

I love wearing yellow and navy together, so I added this Lemon Stretch Bracelet Set. Chico’s jewelry is gorgeous this spring, and I kept grabbing lots of pieces to wear. I also added the matching Lemon Drop Earrings, which give movement as I walk.

I couldn’t show you the bracelet and earrings without showing you the matching Lemon Necklace. This collection has wooden and Mother of Pearl Beads, and all of Chico’s jewelry is nickel-free.

I wanted to style a pair of Bermuda Shorts, so I’ve got three different tops to style with them.

The Calypso Coral Stand Neck Blouse is a beautiful color. This lightweight blouse is one you could wear with jeans, or to the office with dress pants. The smocked stand-up collar doesn’t show in my photos because I added a necklace and turned it down, but you can see it on the website. I also like the bracelet elastic sleeves, I was afraid they would be tight, but they were loose and not tight. I’m wearing a size 1, and it is a great fit.

The Adjustable Wood Bead Necklace makes a huge statement but is lightweight. The beads are resin, so they didn’t weigh a lot. I love that you can adjust the necklace longer if you want, or wear it short as I have it here. Here are a couple more necklaces that include the same colors.

When I grabbed the two blouses, I thought they were the same, only in different colors.

This Textured Stitch Blouse is entirely different, and I think I like it the best. I love the stitching on the shoulders, and I like that this blouse doesn’t have a tie at the neckline. It is the same lightweight fabric, so it can be dressed up or down.

I didn’t tuck either of these blouses in, but I could have easily. Here is a look from the back so you can see the length and how the stitching extends down the back. I’m wearing a size 1, and it fits great.

Here is the last look for the post. This is a Linen Paisley Tunic Top in a gorgeous yellow color. I love the color, and the length is perfect for the Bermuda Shorts. I’m wearing a size 1, and the top isn’t tight.

These are the No-Stain Pull-On Shorts in Alabastor. These are powered by Stain-Repel, Bright-White™ technology, they offer a stay-true hue that stays white longer and repels water-based spills. They have an 11″ inseam, and I love this length when worn with heels. I’m wearing a .5 in the shorts, and they fit great. If an 11″ inseam is too long for you, there is a 10″ version that has several colors to choose from.

  1. I was just thinking about shopping at Chicos when I saw your post. We have the same coloring and hair color, and I think everyone of your outfits looks amazing! Must head to Chico’s soon!
    Thanks for the inspo!

  2. I loved the try on session! You look great in everything! You are so slim! Obviously whatever you are doing agrees with you!

  3. I love the button trim jeggings and the cute hummingbird top. You are looking good in everything. The area looks so nice and green in your travel pictures.

  4. I just recently placed an online Chico’s order and didn’t order the button jeggings …. dang! I guess I’ll need to place another order. I love the fit of all their clothes.

  5. Wow! Love the outfits. You look great! May I ask if you still follow the healthy eating plan you referenced a while back?

  6. Love the try- on and love Chico’s. I already have the Calypso Coral Blouse and love it! Keep trying on 🙂 Thanks so much.

  7. I loved this try-on haul and would enjoy seeing them again, as it fits into your schedule. While all of the outfits are fabulous, my eye was really drawn to the colorful no iron linen blouse. Since I don’t need any more clothes in my closet, I am going to have to not let myself get on the Chico’s site 😉. Those skies looked very wicked. I’m glad y’all made it home safely.

  8. The bright colored blouses are beautiful. But, the style of the lemon yellow works best for your body shape, IMHO. Chico’s has lovely jewelry.

  9. Love the try-on posts. Especially when you describe how to pair them to come up with a great-looking outfit.

  10. Thank you so much for what you do! I love your style, and you inspire me to keep going on my weight-loss journey. You look great, and we share our love of classic style with lots of color.

  11. I like seeing try on hauls. I so appreciate you sharing your thoughts on each piece. For example feel of fabric, if it’s fit is true to size or not, and why you like it or not. Thanks. My Chico’s store near me is so small I order most things on line and it is harder to know texture and true to size.

  12. What a great try on, thank you and your daughter for doing this. Loved everything and lots of versatility with everything.

  13. I really like the sherbet colored poet blouse. I also like the navy fringe shirt and striped jegging. Thank You

  14. I loved all of the outfits from Chico. Not sure I would wear the bermuda shorts. I just can’t afford Chico’s on a retirees pocketbook.

  15. Your try on sessions are great!! I would wear everything you tried on but I think I need to stop at our store. The linen has too many wrinkles for me. Curious if our store inventory is the same. Thanks your posts make my day.

  16. Since I have been following your styles I am loving eco you try on and have started switching my own style

  17. Love the outfits… and the Wedge sandals!! Where did you find them ? Thank you so much for your time…

  18. Yes, please do more try on hauls!
    I love Chicos, but would enjoy seeing hauls from other retailers, too.

  19. I love the colors and print on that No Iron Confetti print shirt but it’s pretty wrinkled. I’ve hesitated buying their linen shirts for that very reason.

  20. Love the Tuesday Try-on and the No iron linen. I bought most clothes ff Chico’s before I retired and never had a bad experience.

  21. Bermudas were a great look on you! I am envious you are so trim! I know you are enjoying your daughter. She looked beautiful on Mother’s Day.

  22. Love, love, love the try on hauls! The colors are gorgeous. I’m iffy on the shorts. I’m not sure about the slim long length.

  23. I absolutely love this haul from Chico’s. I wish I had a store near me. I have a few pieces of their jewelry that are timeless and always get compliments when I wear them.

  24. Love the first two outfits with the shirts especially. All look good though.
    Glad the Tornado didn’t hit.

  25. I love Tuesday try-on! I wish you had tried these on for us before I did my cruise clothes shopping! I’m all packed and it’s countdown time! I look forward to the Coastal Grandma look. I’m from the Maine coast so I’m intrigued to see what this is all about! Thanks, Tania!

  26. You can really see your weight loss in these pictures!! You are looking almost skinny. You look great ! Joe must be very proud. You always looked great, but this is so good for your health & you are an inspiration & great role model for all of us. I am getting inspired to get back on track, I have gained lately & needed some inspiration to get back on track. Thank you

  27. Tania! You look great! You are an inspiration for sure!!

    You make me excited to go shopping again!! I will be making a trip to Chicos tomorrow!!

    Thanks for keeping up the enthusiasm and energy!!
