I love this great light weight jacket from Chico's.
Mr. Mickey and I stopped at the Asheville Chico's a few weeks ago so that I could look through their sale racks. When I saw this jacket it took my breath away. It is the lightest nothing weight fabric ever! I knew immediately it was for me since I can wear it out to dinner even on the hottest summer night. The silver, gold and black colors along with the bamboo shaped black buttons and the Asian influence in the styling made it different enough to stand out. It was also more than 50% off with a store wide sale including already marked down items.
The tank is from the Chico's outlet in Blowing Rock. The brocade pants and the necklace were found on the sale rack in my local Chico's last year. The shoes are from Ross. The handbag is so old I am not certain where I found it but it was likely T.J.Maxx.
At this stage of life I have most of the pieces I need in my closet so shopping has become an occasional sport. When I visit a store it is because I know it is time for the end of season sales. If something catches my eye and I know it will go with many of the other items in my closet it might get to come home with me. Many times I walk away with nothing.
This jacket was also my reward for losing the weight I gained over Christmas. I never reward myself with the food that caused the problem in the first place. I have a friend who recently told me "As soon as I lose this last five pounds I'm going to eat at (her favorite fast food place)." My response was "Why start over? Buy yourself a great fitting pair of jeans that you love instead."
Happy summer sale shopping to you!
Thank you for joining Mr. Mickey and me on this fun journey through midlife and beyond.
