The #NSale and a Giveaway

Happy Thursday, ladies! I’m excited to share some of the items I recently tried on for the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale. In case you don’t know if you’re an icon or ambassador cardholder, you can shop online today.

Beginning tomorrow through July 18th, all cardholders can shop. Finally, public access for everyone is July 19th through August 4th.

Now, a few things I noticed in the store..lots of plaids, animal print (especially snake print) and a lot of camo. Camo doesn’t seem to be going anywhere anytime soon. Some of you are thrilled and others not so much.

I’m only sharing some of what I tried on, tomorrow I will share more, and Monday, I have a post on boots. I also have a giveaway today, so make sure you read to the end.

I saw a lot of plaid blazers, so I tried on several cute ones. I think the blue Vince Camuto (and of course, the most expensive one) below was my favorite. I did buy the AG jeans, this is when I get mine every year. I have every pair I have purchased, they don’t fade and they hold their shape. Hands down my favorites!

Treasure and Bond Blazer (I’m wearing a size 4)//AG Jeans (I’m wearing a size 28)//BP Black Tee (I’m wearing an XS, not online yet)//Earrings//Necklace

For a less expensive option, I purchased the Kut From The Kloth jeans. I really like these too and they are a much better price point.

  6. I would buy the Barefoot dreams cardigan. I’ve always wanted one! Love the blue camo jacket also.

  9. You would look great wearing a garbage bag! 😂
    You are just perfection!
    I think I will order the camo blazer.
    Thank you for your blog. I love it!

  10. The give away didn’t work for the comment.
    I can’t get excited over jackets and blazers in this Texas Heat. You look cute in all of them, but not for me just yet!

  11. When you enter the contest it says leave a blog comment , but it won’t let you but I see there is already one comment but you can’t actually read the blog comment. Hmmmm‼️

  12. I love all your pets! Norstrom is my favorite store to shop. You look fabulous in all the outfits.From head to toe!! Love all the blazers on you!

    1. Love your ideas and your blog Cyndi! I would like to try the AG jeans, especially since they are supposed to keep their shape. I’m tired of having a baggy butt after wearing jeans/pants for a few hours. I’ve come to realize what middle age is… It’s when your butt moves to your front and becomes part of your belly. haha!

  13. I would love the camp jacket and zebra coat. Love animal prints. I’m allergic to most of them so it’s the only way I get to enjoy them 😂 thank you for sharing great classy styles for mature women along with your faith in God with us!

  15. I’d like to buy some fall and winter clothes at the Nordstrom sale for me and back to school clothes for the kids.

  16. Love the zebra print and the white “shaggy” one. I actually bought a black “shaggy” lounge cardigan at Wal-Mart last year. I love it! Keeps me warm on cold winter nights. Then I saw a friend wearing a white one while out shopping!! She looked so chic!

  17. I would love to buy some jeans and sweaters for the fall. I’m looking to update my wardrobe since I have lost weight since last year and my clothes are starting to hang on me. I love your taste in clothes! Thank you!

  18. I love the Barefoot Dreams Cardigans and also the camo jacket. I am also thinking abut the premium denim. Love your coverage of the sale.

  19. That plaid blazer is gorgeous…..always enjoy your jean recommendations as well. Thank you for all that you are and all that you do!! xo

  20. Cyndi, I love the red split neck top in the photo at the top of this post! I believe maybe you’ve shared it before, but I can’t find it. Would you mind sharing info on that? Thanks so much!

  21. I love the Kenneth Cole jacket, and the AG jeans have been my favorite too. Thanks for sharing all your styles and comments, it helps someone like me who can’t figure out what might be a good outfit! I also appreciate your personal and faith sharing!

  22. Last year during the Nordstrom anniversary sale I bought 3 pairs of Dolce Vita flip flops in blush, black and grey with metal edging. They’re easy to dress up or down. I also got a really cute shirt for myself and I bought some cool pants and jersey shirts for my son who was starting a new job teaching at a high school. It was cool comfortable clothing but still professional. Super cute! Love great quality at Wallyworld prices. Teehee! Looks like this year is going to be just as great.

  23. I love the TopShop blazer. It looks slenderizing and could be dressed up or down. Everything you featured looks amazing on you! Love your Blog and your heart!

  24. I love following a blogger closer to my age. You keep me inspired to dress fashionable but not like I’m still 20:) I enjoy your home decor stories as well. We are in the middle of a remodel. Thanks

  25. Thank you Cyndi for all of your hard work! I get so many great ideas from you. I especially enjoy the 25 days of fashion for each season!

  26. I’m hoping to find some denim and maybe a moto jacket! Thanks for sharing your faith along with your fashion Cyndi!

  27. i love your sense of style! You make it easy for me to shop up to date and stay stylish! Camo jacket is a must have for me, may also splurge for blue plaid blazer. Thanks for all your encouraging words!!!

  28. Thank you for all of your hard work. I love starting my day with a note from you.
    I would definitely try the AG jeans that are your favorite!

  29. I love fashion too and wonder how to justify it with my faith. You do a great job of it. I’m feeling olive and camel for fall. I like the drapery olive coat and am looking at cognac boots. Can’t decide between boots and booties. Thanks for the outfit pics.

  30. I would buy a barefoot dreams cardigan! Thank you for this giveaway – I am a fellow Kentucky girl and I love your blog!

  32. Thank you for doing this! I love that you don’t have to like a bunch of people etc. Truly, a gracious gesture! I had not seen the coat yet and I love the simplicity! I am hoping to get a blazer and some jeans. I may even fall victim to the leopard print sweater!

  33. You are amazing! You always uplift me and others. I enjoy looking at all your clothes and love getting to buy a few. Thanks for being you.
    P.S. I think your fireplace is going to be beautiful.

  38. Thanks for always keeping it real. Enjoy your post. I actually remember you from when you lived in Glasgow, KY.

  39. Thanks Cyndi for all you do! I have learned so much from you during the few years I have been following your blog!

  40. i love the Kenneth Cole coat. I entered the giveaway, but my device is acting crazy and not let me comment.

  43. I love the blazers for Fall/Winter…they really make an outfit look polished AND cover a multitude of sins (too much pie, ice cream, chocolate, fries)!

  44. Hard to believe, I know, but I’ve never been to Nordstrom. Love all the longer length cardigans. Love the pink pajamas too!

  45. What I really need is an all purpose handbag for fall/winter, what I would like to have is a whole different matter:). Thanks for the generous give away!

      Thanks for sharing your style!

  121. The Kenneth Cole coat is lovely! And the lounge set is very cute. Haven’t most of us hit ‘send’ just a moment too soon? Haha. Gmail has an ‘unsend’ option, so you can stop a message seconds after you’ve sent it.

  123. I’d love to buy the olive coat and the barefoot dream cozy cardigan. Thank you for showing us so many choices.

  124. I especially like the green coat/cardigan and the leopard one. I am also stalking a Barefoot Dreams cardigan.

  125. I would buy shoes…..I love shoes. Maybe a cute dress or two as I am trying to wear more since it is hot in South Texas.

  126. I love the BP pajama clothes. So much good stuff in blogland today and I’ve been stressing over who to order through to get my commission and and decided earlier today that it will be you because overall, I get best inspiration right here. I really also appreciate that you don’t push $200 sweaters and $350 shoes on us. Thank you!

  127. I LOVE the camo jacket! And I may order the leopard print sweater for my daughter-in-law for Christmas! #shoppingearly

  128. Love the BP leopard lounge set😉. With our current heat, it is a little hard to look at sleeves, coats and cardis….. 😁
    Thank you for your Beauty for the Heart, so often perfectly-timed truths that our Lord uses to speak to me.

    1. I would use the giveaway to buy some maternity clothes, maybe some baby clothes, and some new summer/fall clothes for my husband.

  129. I love these cardigans. With the gift card I would buy some new pieces to wear to my son’s bootcamp graduation in September. The weather in Dan Diego is warm in the day and a bit chilly in the eve. Light weight cardigans would be perfect!

  130. Love your style and attitude! You inspire me and my sister too in many way! Thanks for all you do for us!! I love the blazers and the black suede boots! The Kenneth Cole coat so classy! Gotta have the cute PJ’s too!! ❤️

  131. I will definitely be buying some denim, probably a cardigan, some new underwear, and probably a pair of booties.

  132. I’m more of a minimalist when it comes to the animal prints. I have it a pair of leopard print loafers and that’s it. But I have to say that leopard print cardigan is pretty cute.

  133. Thank you for sharing all the seasonal trends with us as well as your Faith each day. I always love to read the verses or inspirational quotes.

  134. Thanks for all the posting and great tips. Can’t wait to shop! Will definitely be getting Kut from the Kloth jeans.

      1. Cyndi,
        I’ve been following your blog for about 6 months. I love your style! I want to try the AG jeans.

  135. Thank you Cyndi! I have early access and ordered the Kenneth Cole coat in the olive color and the AG jeans. I also ordered the cute pj short set.

  136. I LOVE that Kenneth Cole coat!! That just looks neat. I love that you always look put together and I strive to be like that everyday (some days I just can’t seem to get past the jammies). Maybe I would get the jammies that you have on in this post. You just never know with me. I seem to always change my mind at the last minute. FOBO is REAL!!!

  137. Love to see the items you model! Love the snake n animal prints! Skinny jeans are my favorite! Thank you for information n inspiration!

  138. So many cute things!!! I have gone through my closet and donated so many things, I’m lost!!! What I really need now are some decent sandals that I can walk in, and some also nice enough to wear with something a little more dressy than shorts or leggings! I look on Nordstrom all the time, and keep putting things in my cart, and they get sold while I’m waiting on them.

  139. Your BFTH always seems to address what is going on in my life! Thank you for sharing these thoughts every day. Love all those cardigans. I used to wear blazers all the time(I am a special ed teacher at an elementary school) but the dress has gotten a little more casual. Maybe I will bring the blazer back!😉

  140. I tease my husband about wearing camo all the time (the kind from the the hunting supply stores;), but that camo jacket is awfully cute!

  141. My comment seems to have disappeared! I wanted to thank you for all the new fall clothes that you modeled. I think the animal print cardigan is my favorite!

  142. I love all of your choices but that cameo jacket is calling my name. Of course I’m in Florida so it’s not like I need it but still……

  143. Thank you for the new fall line up of clothes! I think the animal print cardigan is my favorite item you modeled! And the AG jeans look so cute on you.

  144. Thanks for all the work doing to pre-shopping for all of us! I love your taste and you inspire me to try new looks.

  145. You are so adorable! You give me confidence that although more mature, I can still dress stylish without trying to look like a teenager.

    I would love to buy something I wouldn’t normally be able to buy for myself.

  146. I would love to purchase one of the cardigans, some Kut from the Cloth jeans, and some pajamas. This teacher would feel super spoiled!!!

  147. The Kenneth Cole coat and the camo jacket would be such great additions to my fall wardrobe. I’m really looking forward to seeing what else you will be styling for the upcoming season. Thanks for all you do to keep us up to date with current fashion.

  148. Thank you for all the sneak previews of the fall line. Love the cardigans and the booties. Read your posts every day , love the scriptures, words of wisdom and the clothes!!

  149. I loved a lot of the items you modeled from Nordstrom. I can’t wait to purchase some of them…a couple of the jeans, especially!

  150. Thank you for doing all the legwork. Now I can search all the great things you’ve shown me first thing in the morning! Can’t wait to get started!

  151. Cyndi,
    I loved your choices in the Nordstrom Post today! My favorite is the Kenneth Cole Coat. Thank you for giving us these great ideas for picks from the sale! Tricia

  152. I look forward to your blog everyday. You have inspired me with your styles and your encouraging words!! I love the animal prints!🙂

  153. This will be my first time shopping the sale! I’m so excited! I’m looking for wedge booties for fall/winter and a few cardigans. Thank you for keeping us all “in the know!”

  154. I love the Barefoot Dreams cardigans. I have one I got a few years ago, and it is so comfy! Love your blog!

  155. I’m thinking new jeans and snakeskin shoes are calling my name 🤔🥰
    Thanks for all of your ideas!

  156. No worries, Cyndi! I knew right away that you were having a very busy day and accidentally sent the wrong email! Knew if I waited you would come back with the correct one! Never thought you were “losing it”! As I have faith in God, I also have faith in you! Because of you, I’m going to not only online shop at Nordstrom’s tomorrow but also brave our local store! I’m sure it will be like that old Jerry Lewis movie! Wish me luck! I’m hunting for some new earrings! 😀😁

  157. Bless your heart! When I saw your first email this morning, I wondered what was going on. I have numerous pairs of Wit And Wisdom jeans that I am very pleased with. I can’t wait to participate in the sale tomorrow. Fabulous BFTH!

  158. I love the barefoot dream cardigan and the Kenneth Cole coat. I really like the pajamas too! Looking forward to tomorrow’s post. Thanks, Cyndi!

  159. Oops, I tried to leave a comment but it accept it before I wrote it. I hope I’m still entered!I would love to sport the camo jacket with black tee and jeans!

  160. You’ve inspired me to look at jeans as an investment! I usually buy jeans under 50$ at the same store and they always wear out and fade quickly. At first I was shocked at the price tag of 200$ On sale but I talked to my husband and he thinks it’s worth it…I’m worth it! 😊 especially if they last as you say. So I will be checking out the ag jeans at Nordstrom to find my size! Can’t wait!!

  161. I would purchase the cozy chic cardigan. I love drinking my morning coffee in my pajamas and the cardigan would be perfect for chilly mornings.

  162. I love the gray Barefoot Dreams Cardigan like you have…looks so cozy for a chilly fall evening! So fun to see all your finds. Thanks for the giveaway.

    1. Don’t worry about appearing to have lost it – we’re just honored to have you in our group!!! I’ve been thinking that about myself for a while now, don’t worry, it gets worse! Lol I love your posts, they always lift my spirit! I love the Camo Jacket, all the long coats, and the pj’s! They’re all so cute & look so cute on you! Keep the posts coming!

  163. Thanks for putting all this together! It is so helpful! Really hope I can get that leopard print cardigan tomorrow!

  164. Some great picks here, especially love the gray barefoot dreams cardigan! It looks so soft and cozy! And the PJ’s look so comfy too!
    Thanks for making it easy to pick favorites and thank youfor a chance to win this wonderful prize!

  165. Thanks for putting all this together! It is so helpful! Really hope I can get that leopard print cardigan tomorrow!

  166. I Love the Kenneth Cole Coat which looks great on you! Hard to think about Fall in this heat but Thanks for doing this so we know what is out there for the next season Cindy! Love your style and your hair!

  167. I love the leopard print and the camo jacket. Looks so cute on you!! Thanks for showing us different pieces! 🙂

  168. Sorry you’re sore from shopping! That’s MY kind of exercise!! Love the jeans, booties, and the Vince blazer!

  169. My wardrobe has greatly improved since I started following you. I already have a shopping list for the #NSale thanks to you. Can’t wait!

  170. Love the leopard print items. All things look wonderful on you Cyndi! You are truly so classy and beautiful!!! God bless you 😄

  171. Hi Cyndi,
    Thanks for the great coverage of the NSale! I really need some new denim which will last me a while – in other words, better quality than I usually buy. Looks like there are some great options available.

  172. Thank you for all of the work you do to keep us in the know. I’m really thinking of getting the Barefoot Dreams Cardigan for my daughter in laws and one for myself.

  173. Nordstrom’s used be an anchor store at our nearest mall but sadly pulled out. Thankfully with a little further driving I can get to one! I’ve never considered Camo to be something I’d like but I LOVE the Camo jacket you styled! I would definitely add that to my wardrobe! Thanks for helping us think outside the box! I also love the booties!

  174. You look good as always in everything! I’m petite. I hope some of the longer sweaters are petite. Loved all the new trends. Thanks for sharing .

  175. Thank you Cyndi…..
    Love anything Leopard, cute cardigan, pajamas and the black/gray cardigan! Also in love with the booties! Super cute this year again (hasn’t changed much in a couple years).

    All the best to you and your family!

  176. I will definitely be trying to snag one of the Barefoot Dreams cardigans! Thank you for doing the shopping for us – I feel like you are my very own personal stylist!
