Summer sales and a giveaway

summer sales and a giveaway

Happy Monday!  Let my birthday week officially begin!  Today I am beginning to show you my purchases from summer sales and include a giveaway!

July is not only my birthday month, but one of my favorite times to shop because of the incredible summer sales. 

I look at my wardrobe and assess where I would like to make additions.

With my complete change of a color palette last year, there are still areas I am watching.

Summer sales, for me, have been one of the best ways to hone in my style over 60.

Today and tomorrow, I am only going to show you a couple of items…they will trickle in over the remainder of the month.

I think I would have walked on by the Cupro-Blend Utility Jacket on a Chico’s clearance rack if I had not touched it.

On the website, here is what is said about the fabric:

  • Silky-smooth, super lightweight cupro-blend fabric with stretch.

The fabric is so lightweight and feels cool…it is perfect for a third piece in a warm climate.

But if you are looking for a lot of structure, this would not be the jacket. I also touched it up with the iron when I brought it home, but it has worn well.

I can wear it out now and not overheat.  The sand color is perfect since I no longer wear white/white. 

I am thrilled to have a third piece like this for warmer weather which often hangs around until October.

Today, I am wearing it with JJILL Pima Rounded V-Neck Tank in Cape Cod red…though I believe this color is sold out….you might find it in a store.

I am so glad to add this color to my sleeveless tanks specifically for wearing under jackets and cardigans.  It is a perfect color for my wardrobe.

The necklace is from a local consignment shop; the shoes have been with me for years; and the pants are older 

I love an outfit like this and for even more creativity, I can add a scarf!

As always, I have enjoyed shopping and looking over the summer sales.

Now, the celebration commences with one of my gift box giveaways with a summer theme.

This summer box includes:

  1. The summer hit bestseller, One Italian Summer by Rebecca Serle (Chico’s book club selection)
  2. A cute coffee mug which says….I treat shopping like a sport, I only get better with practice…I was shopping with Leigh Ann at Hobby Lobby when I saw this mug and knew it would be perfect for a giveaway.
  3. In honor of our Summer to Flourish list from The Magnolia Journal, here are three cactus molds for homemade ice pops.  Just to remember us in Texas!
  4. The navy and white scarf, and both blue and gold necklaces are Chico’s.  Many of you know that when I changed color palettes, I saved a few items for giveaways.  This is the third one.
  5. (Not Pictured) Eye cream by Chamonix All Natural Skincare…you know it is my favorite so I want you to experience it also.

That is the prize.  So far, we have had one winner in Canada, One in the Northeast, and one in the Southwest!

Of course, if you have been a previous winner, you can enter again.

All you have to do is tell me in the comments that your want you name in the hat!  I will literally draw a name out of a hat…which has been my son’s old football helmet.

The winner will be announced on Saturday after the WYWI display.

Let me know if you have any questions on summer sales or on the giveaway!  I will have something fun tomorrow!  Also, I please tell me if you are looking for a specific item.

Since Connie asked for cardigans at the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale…here is a slideshow for Connie:
