Hi ladies! I’m doing it again. I’m putting together multiple outfits for summer, and they’re all straight from my closet. This time I’m sticking with the 5 outfits and not going all wild like I did in yesterday’s summer workwear post. Ha! AND these are outfits we all can wear for most any fun, casual summer day. PLUS these super versatile cargo crop chinos are part of Talbots’ Red Hanger Sale. But maybe you have some similar to these in your closet…
Oh! And I’ve got a little treat for you at the end of the post…so stay with me!!!

I purchased these cargo crop pants early in the spring and shared them in this post. In fact, let’s start there. This first outfit is very similar to the one I shared in that post. I just love the juxtaposition of a feminine sweatshirt over these cargo crop pants. (I apologize for the photos. I’m still learning how best to use my new camera/phone to get these indoor shots. It’s hit or miss right now!)
This is probably the most colorful look I’m showing. I forgot to take a photo with just the white tee, but you’ll see it below. In fact, I combined a lot of colors in this look. There’s the dusty pink in the sweatshirt, the bronze veined teal magnesite customized pendant necklace, the colorful earrings (which are no longer available) and my lemon citrine platform flip flops. But I think the reason all these colors work together so nicely is because the canyon camel cargo crop pants are at the center of it all.
The cargo crop pants also come in yellow, navy, olive green and white, by the way. I have them in the white, as well. They run true to size; I’m wearing an 8.
Next up, let’s check out my black and camel look. If you’ve been around here long, it won’t surprise you that this is perhaps my favorite look. I love my neutrals!
I think you can’t go wrong with camel and black. Throw in just a touch of animal print and you’ve got a winner! I’ve worn these leopard print sandals for three summers now. They’ve just recently been marked down 30%.
I knew when I put this outfit together that the leopard tee was no longer available, but I figure most of us have one in our wardrobe by now. If not, this one at Banana Republic is pretty similar. My bedazzled black flip flops were gifted to me from Brighton to share with you, but you could swap in any black sandals for this same look.
Next up, another neutrals look, but this time we’re going to lighten things up. This Henley tee is from Banana Republic, too. I’m wearing the almond color. It’s marked down and you’ll get an extra 50% off at the register. It’s proven to be so versatile in my summer wardrobe.
And I love the Henley tee paired with the striped linen shirt. The linen shirt is one of Chico’s no-iron shirts and it’s finally been marked down. Hurry. This one will go fast! It’s dreamy. I’m wearing the size 1.
And finally, we’ll end on a little more color. I just love how blue pairs with this dark camel.
I wish so badly my embroidered chambray top were marked down.
Alas, it is not. But watch for it to be discounted later this week. I’ve got the intel! Yay! It’s 30% off today! In fact, Talbots is giving 30% off all full price tees, sweaters, blouses and more. My shoes are no longer available, but these espadrilles are probably better anyhow, and they’re part of the Red Hanger Sale.
Well, I hope you got a little style inspiration for your mid summer days. And now for that little surprise I promised. Cue the music! (and hit play!)
My daughter Abigail, who I recently hired as my virtual assistant, has been teaching me how to do these Instagram reels. We’re really trying to increase my interaction on Instagram. I want to be able to provide you value there, too. I’d absolutely LOVE IT if you would follow me on Instagram. And you could also encourage some of your friends to join me there, too. I’d love, love, love that!

Bewildered. Have you ever felt that way? Boy, I have. Flummoxed. Ha! I love the word, hate the feeling. There are certainly situations in which we just don’t know what to do. And even if we have an inkling of what might be a good course of action, we’re not sure how we can carry it out. Our resources are slim, our know-how is limited, our power is insufficient and our hope is waning.
Here’s what ya do. Ready for it? You simply focus your eyes on the Lord and confess to Him your helplessness. Sometimes that’s all He’s waiting for. He’s waiting for us to come to the end of ourselves so that He can step in and do what only He can do. I love 2 Chronicles 20:12 for this reason. It’s a good one to commit to memory, dear sister. And sometimes I just say it over and over through the day. “I’m powerless here, Lord. And I don’t know what to do. But my eyes are on You.”
“Our God, will You not judge them? For we are powerless before this great multitude that is coming against us; nor do we know what to do, but our eyes are on You.” ~ 2 Chronicles 20:12
