The Nordstrom Anniversary Sale is now open for card holders and will be open for the general public on the 19th.  I wanted to show you my Top 10 and some of my other favorite things. Some of these are kinda trendy but others are great basics that you can wear year after year. I do have to say that I was a little disappointed in the sale this year.  The selection of products did not seem that great and things that I really loved sold out super quickly.  But I think there are still some great deals on some basic pieces and a few trendy pieces if you just want to shop or need something. Happy Shopping! My Top 10 Picks These are my…

When you think of trends, what comes to your mind?  Trends to me are things that are popular or “on trend” for the season.  Trends don’t have to be intimidating or scary to try.  There are some intimidating trends out there but we are just going to look at the simple trends that you will see for this coming fall 2020 season. Not complicated or scary; just really fun, cute and super easy to wear. They are also appropriate for ANY age! Don’t think because you are over 40 or 50 that trends are something you need to stay away from. I am over 40 and I know for sure I can wear most of these trends. With the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale approaching I thought…

Yay for the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale! If you have never shopped the sale, I would like to invite you to shop the sale along with me!  I have shopped it the past couple of years and it’s one of my favorite sales of the year. Of course this year will be a little bit different due to the Covid-19 pandemic. BUT I think it is going to be amazing as long as they are prepared for all of the online traffic they are going to get. The coolest thing about this sale is most items that you will shop are new FALL items!  They usually offer discounts of 25% to 50% off regular prices.  You can find great staple pieces and fun trendy pieces to…

Do you wear shorts in the summertime?  I actually have a lot of women tell me they don’t wear shorts. I know, from experience, as we age our legs don’t always look like we would like them to. There were a few years that I did not wear shorts because of spider veins until I finally decided to get rid of them with injections. It was so worth it! I still have some but not as much as I use to. I also use a self tanner on my legs to give them a little color but also to cover some of those small veins. With the heat as bad as it is here in the south I honestly don’t know what I would do…

Things are looking a little bit different for a lot of us right now and this may continue for the next few months.  I hope all of you are staying at home, if it is possible for you to. My husband and I haven’t left the house in over a week and we plan on continuing that lifestyle for a little while.  Not knowing how this virus will affect us gives me enough reason to try my best to stay far away from anyone until this has all calmed down.  What an experience this has been right?! I hope and pray that you and your families are well and stay that way.  I have been clinging to the verse 2 Timothy 1:7 which says “For…

Welcome to the age of 40!  I am now 43 and still feel like I am in my 20’s.  I certainly hope you do too! I wanted to write this post about Style Tips for Women Over 40 because I believe it is partially about what you wear but mostly about how you wear it. I hope you do not think that there should be a drastic change in how you dress when you enter your 40’s, 50’s, or 60 because that is just not true. I wear some of the same things I wore in my 20’s and 30’s, I just wear them differently!  Just because you turn 40 doesn’t mean everything immediately changes. The further you get into your 40’s than we can…

Spring was predicted to come early this year.  Personally, I am looking forward to it and I hope you are too.  Spring Essentials You Need for 2020 will help you create a good foundational wardrobe for the spring season. You may already own what I suggest or you will be able to see what pieces you might be missing. Essential items in your wardrobe are “essential” for you to build a long lasting wardrobe and are the foundation for you to add your own personal style items to.  Essentials will last the longest in your wardrobe and rarely go out of style. Some will even be worn year round.   These essentials are also for any age. They are basic enough that anyone over 40, 50…
