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!
there are two exciting events on television this weekend. so we broke out the Pimm’s cup, scones, and jelly, and a few yummy sammies to celebrate the Wimbledon finals. Williams vs. Halep are the finalists for the women’s match. Federer vs. Djokovic are the finalists for the men’s.

oscar was so not into taking photos this week. the photoshoot was late in the day, and he wanted to snooze instead of strike a pose. treats come in handy!

Beth, so glad to get your post today! Was so worried about what may have been. It sounds like you and your DIL have a good relationship. I hope you enjoy your day in Atlanta with her! Please know you are in my thoughts and prayers!
I do enjoy a Pimms cup, thanks for the reminder. Enjoy your weekend.
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.
Hello Beth, You didn’t mention it, but looks like you’ve had your hair cut. It is lovely and most becoming! Enjoy shopping with your daughter in law and have a great weekend.
I enjoy your blog so much. I see your cat in that last pic! Love your new haircut and I love those glasses!
your hair is shorter–is that for summer? it looks “refreshing”
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.
New fan here. I love your hair. Drinks are good too. Thanks, Mary in Maryland
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!
You and your furry friends look beautiful. thanks for still coming into our homes via style at a certain age at this most difficult time. My prayers and thoughts continue for you and Mr style and your family.
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…
My heart! That Sam Endelman blue coat !Dare I buy it all the way from New Zealand?!!
PS I loved the little video with your daughter-in-law!
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😃
We missed you two Friday! Let me add my comments on you stunning new cut! You also know how to celebrate. Would be delighted to nosh on your snacks! Looks like Ollie is taking in who’s getting treats! 😉
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.
What breed of cat is Ollie
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! ❤️
