Today, I’ve only got one outfit to share and I’ve share the top before, but it’s always nice to have another look at styling an outfit. This time I paired this top from Steinmart with black skinny pants that I found at Costco, by Calvin Klein. This long tunic is perfect for skimming over the black pants and I added those black wedge shoes from Target as an accent.
The top is gauzy material and so comfortable. This type material washes up so well and I love the Bohemian print with all those colors.

I added some chunky jewelry and that brings out the rusty red tones.
It makes for a great little outdoor for so many things. I wore it to church last Sunday.
On Saturday, I had a fun surprise.
I love hearing from my readers and this sweet lady, Mary Ann, has been reading my blog for several years. She lives in Texas and has emailed me a number of times over the years. She and 2 of her girlfriends planned a trip around some of my travel ideas I’ve shared on the blog. She wrote me and told me they were coming to Marietta and I hoped that they wouldn’t be disappointed after they got here. Since they would be in town for one night, I told her to come over and meet me so they did! It was such fun to get to meet a some of my readers in person and we chatted like old friends. I told her when she came in that she knows everything about my life, but I didn’t know anything about hers. We had a nice visit and then they were on their way to Madison, GA, then on to the coastal areas. So, Mary Ann, it was great to meet you and your friends! It made my weekend to have them stop by to see me. She is such a pretty lady!
In other news, from what I hear in blogland, the Nordstrom Anniversary sale is gearing up this week and goes from July 22 through August 7 and Nordstrom cardholders can shop the Early Bird sale first. I found some cute things that are on sale, so thought I’d share my picks with you. (affiliate links used)
Below are some clothes I thought were really cute and I can see myself wearing any of these. The shorter dresses, I would wear with skinny pants or leggings for a fun look.
And a few shoes caught my eye too! These are similar to a few pair that I have and enjoy, so thought I’d pass these along. The sale is a great way to get some early Fall things and also summer items.

Rhoda, love the gauzy top and you styled it beautifully! Meeting readers is so much fun! Happy Wednesday! Pam @ Everyday Living
Rhoda,I love the top the and the first thing I noticed was the jewelry and how it brought out those touches of the red. I love the Wednesday fashion feature. I have used your ideas several times and especially putting leggings under some the shorter dresses. They are some really fun ones that are just too short for a women of my age and wearing leggings has been great for me. Thank you for that tip!!

Cute outfit! I had wondered about that fabric at Stein Mart. I am Boutique Lady in Stein Mart once a week so. 🙂 Glad to know it washes well. So hot here maxi dresses and flat sandals with front hair braided off my face has been my usual attire……especially since we had power in neighborhood go off for a day after storm. You look cool in your pretty outfit………great choice!

I am closer to 70 than I am 50 but have used some of your wonderful ideas. Look forward to it every week.
I have been having problems reading your blog. I tried to contact you by email but that page cuts off your email address. When I open up your blog it displays correctly for a second and then everything moves to the left and is in a column. Sometimes it cuts off the right side of the words also as it does with your email. Is anyone else having this problem? I find it difficult to read your blog this way. The pictures are smaller also when displayed this way. Please let me know if you have a suggestion for this. I haven’t found this problem on any other blogs I subscribe to. I can’t rate you post either.
HI, Rosalind, I’ve talked about this on my blog several weeks ago. It seems to be that people who are running ad blockers are having the problem.Are you running one? There seems to be an incompatibility with my ad plugin I need to have on my sidebar with ad blockers on Chrome and Firefox. Several told me when they turned off their ad blocker, it went back to normal. That’s all I know at this point!
I also noticed your chunky jewelry right away. It really complements your outfit nicely!
I love your lipstick color. Can you share the make and color? I will search through your blog, also.
HI Lindy, it’s a Calvin Klein color that I’ve shared before, but when I went to find it online again, it looks like it’s no longer available. I found a few on Ebay. It’s in a rounded at both end tube and the color is Alarm.
