everlane muscle tank everlane chinos

it’s friday, gang! actually, saturday as this is a special edition of fridays with oscar. but we made it through another week. and today’s not just any day. not only does oscar make an appearance but the Nordstrom Anniversary sale is in full swing for those of us who are card members. if you are not a Nordstrom cardholder and would like to learn more click here. there are lots of benefits that come with a Nordstrom card. early access to their anniversary sale is but one.

i know, i know, we’re not quite ready to think about fall clothes. but one reason i love the Nordstrom Anniversary sale is that it’s a great time to stock up on wardrobe basics and splurge on an item or two that you just LOVE. and you can shop online or in-store. i’ll be doing both this year. today, my daughter in law and i are headed down to atlanta to see what’s available in-store. on monday, i’ll share a dressing room diaries post along with a video. yes, we are headed back to YouTube this month after a long hiatus! plus, i’ll post my first draft picks this morning with a follow-up at some point during this mega-monster sale that lasts until august. phew! lot’s going on around here!

  2. 1 navel orange, cut crosswise into thin slices
  3. 1 lemon, cut crosswise into thin slices
  4. 3/4 cup firmly packed mint leaves and tender stems

Instructions
  1. In a large pitcher, combine the Pimm's, the orange and lemon slices, and the mint. Chill for about 10 minutes. Stir in the ginger ale.
  2. Put two cucumber wedges, standing on end, into each of four 1-pint glasses. Fill halfway with ice. Pour in the Pimm's mixture. Push the mint down into the drinks and divide the orange, lemon, and apple slices among the drinks.

    Love any and all Nordstrom sales. Your hair looks amazing. Is it cut shorter or just styled differently? It is gorgeous! Looking forward to seeing what you find.

    Beth, Oscar is such a handsome devil! I don’t blame him for wanting to snooze. I’ve been doing the same in this very hot weather…even in Wisconsin. Love your outfit. Your table always looks so inviting.

  9. Prayers for you and Mr Style in your time of need. God bless you for8 trekking on. Looking at you in your Fridays with Oscar shows the smiles given were not for your husband who is the rightful person who belongs behind the camera. God bless you both.

    I love the Friday visits with Oscar (and Ollie) and the opportunity to peek into your lovely home! Your Friday outfit is great! I can’t help but notice your hair appears shorter than it has been lately. I’m admiring that new cut! Please share details and view from all angles. Thanks Beth!

    Cute top and pants. I really like the clean lines of Everlane. That’s a perfect casual OOTD. And I’ve been looking for sleeveless Tshirts this summer that go with everything. Someone got a haircut–it looks great, Beth. Happy weekend–hope you all get a chance to relax. We watched the women’s match and I was so happy for her, but my heart also went out to Serena, as I know she wants that 24th win, too, and she worked hard as well…

    Thinking of you and Mr Style…

    I am delighted with the Pimm’s cup recipe. I had heard about this drink but never knew what was in it. Of course Oscar wants his treats – it’s a small price to pay for having this amazing dog participate in Style at a Certain Age😃

    Beth, I’m happy that your DIL is able to spend time with you, and Mr. Style. It seems from previous blogs that you are quite a distance from your boys. I don’t know how long you have lived in Athens, but you mentioned how you chose Athens for your retirement place. I grew up in Elberton, so Athens is dear to my heart, although I have been in Atlanta for a longer time. Hugs and prayers.

    Ollie looks duly unimpressed with handsome Oscar! LOVE your Friday’s with Oscar posts. 💐 I’m not terribly interested in sports, though I do love me a Packer party on a crisp fall day, but tennis is something I think I could be inspired by…must endeavor to learn more. (Plus…the lovely outfits in the stands!)
    Beth, you and your husband continue to be in my prayers and most supportive thoughts. I admire your strength and drive to continue to add value and beauty for your online community. We need more grace and beauty in this world! ❤️
