Links + Sales + Amazon Finds
Today it’s all about sales, links to items that I am loving, Amazon Tees and blouses try-on haul, and the cutest neutral outfit that has moved its way up to the front of the rotation list. This is a fall outfit, but you can ditch the jacket and wear it now or even style it with a cardigan for casual workwear. It’s all about the beige tones, a classic color that can easily be styled with different earth tones that will level up an outfit super easy!
My jacket is from Nordstrom and one of the softest moto-jackets I have worn. This jacket s by BLANKNYC and I am wearing the Sand Dune color. This is a jacket that I know I am going to get a lot of wear out of, and although it is around $80, I know it will last because it is a quality piece. This fits TTS and I am wearing a large for reference. The pictures online DO NOT do it justice, it is so much cuter in person. A taupe jacket is a must-have for fall and winter, because you can style it with nearly anything- from jeans to dresses, it’s an item you will grab often. See the jacket here.
I get asked a lot about my Loopy Phone Case on social media, so when Loopy Cases reached out to me to offer a new case, I jumped on that! As we were talking, I asked if I could get a coupon code for all of you and they readily offered one up. Shop Loopy Cases here, and use code BEVERLYH10 and get 10% off your case and loopy holder.
Since we are talking about phones, let me share a new Amazon Find. We ride our bikes on occasion and my phone is constantly going dead if I play music or run my Biking App. I bought this set of two portable chargers from Amazon, and can you believe Brooklyn was the first one to use it, she’s always the first, HA! It works with my Fire Tablet when I’m reading, our phones, the iPad, and all Samsung items. It’s lightweight, compact, and will charge my phone over 3 times before I need to recharge it. It also helped that it has almost 41K positive reviews! A set of two charges that are under $20, see the charger here.
Macy’s is having their Big Home Sale and these Yankee Candle Outdoor Collection candles are on Closeout! These are on sale for $20 -$30, and Fresh Rain is one fo my favorites! See the candles here.
This gilded leopard tunic from Cato Fashions caught my eye. Have you seen their new fall line? Check out all their new items here.
What I’ve Been Reading…
I shared this book on my Instagram stories because I was enjoying it so much. I love thrillers, love stories, and I absolutely love reading true stories and what people have went through and overcame. Christy (a follower on IG) messaged me and suggested I read The Alice Network, she says it is very similar (but fiction) and totally worth the read! A Woman Of No Importance is about a spy, and it’s true!
Here is an excerpt just to get your engines running! “In 1942, the Gestapo sent out an urgent transmission: “She is the most dangerous of all Allied spies. We must find and destroy her.” … She became the first Allied woman deployed behind enemy lines and–despite her prosthetic leg–helped to light the flame of the French Resistance, revolutionizing secret warfare as we know it.” Who doesn’t love a great true story and a woman is the hero! See the book here.
Devoted is a thriller, and I love a great thriller! This one has a dog as a character who comes to love a little boy who hasn’t spoken in 11 years. It’s a page turner for sure! Not to give it all away, but there is an evil killer in this book and the story will have you sitting up swiping your Kindle! It’s a free book for Kindle also! See this book here.

If you have shopped on Amazon, I am sure you have sen some of the best sellers pop up and wonder if they would be a score or an epic fail. I decoded to try out some of the tees and blouses that keep popping up on my feed and put them to the test. I was surprised to find out that they were better than I expected! These were some of my faves.
This is definitely a tee to check out, it is one of my favorite tees I have found from Amazon. I love the colors, the camo and the stripes make it stand out from a normal tee. This comes in multiple color options and it fits TTS. It has some stretch in it, so it’s super comfortable and breathable for the hotter months. I am wearing a large in the baby blue for reference. It’s only $16 and totally worth trying. See the tee here.
I love the sleeve detail on this v-neck casual tee! I have been eyeing this the entire summer and finally ordered it. This fits TTS ( I am wearing a large) and comes in multiple color options. This hits below the waist and easy to tuck or untuck, the sleeves are not scratchy, and are as soft as the tee. Overall it is a great tee to style on the weekend or for work. I’m wearing the light blue, see it here.
This sweater was better than I expected as well. This is a loose v-neck color block style sweater and I loved the neutral stripes that really stand out with the black skinny jeans from Target. This sweater has nearly 2k positive reviews, so I jumped on it. It fits true to size and comes in a ton of colors and patterns. This looks really cute with denim shorts and sneakers on cooler nights. See the sweater here.
This striped-leopard twist knot side tee is as cute in person as it is in the pictures. I would size up in this for a better fit. I ordered a large and it fit like a medium, so I returned for a larger size. This comes in different colors and patterns also. it’s a cute tee for the weekend or to wear on a business casual day. See the tee here, it’s only $17 and I am wearing the grey.
This split v-neck chiffon tunic is supposed to fit looser than what I am wearing, so I would size up unless you want it to fit slimmer. This is a tunic and hits below the hips; I decided to tie it at the waist since long lines will make me appear very tall, lol. Overall, I like this top, however, I would have liked it much more if I had sized up and went with the oasis leaf print. See all the prints here.

Thanks for stopping by the blog today! I hope you enjoyed the post and more importantly…enjoy your weekend! I am going to wrestle with Ziva today and give her a much needed bath. I spent about two hours bathing and trimming up Cooper yesterday and he was jetting around like he was King of the Hoyle house! He shakes like a leaf when you try to trim him up (he’s a Chorkie and has high anxiety), but will stand in our sink as warm water runs over him and let you cut away. Once he starts getting lathered up, he’s putty in your hands, LOL! Ziva on the other hand, sigh…. We will be locked in the shower and I’m sure I will need a bathing suit on to conquer this task! Any tips for bathing this big Goldendoodle? She normally goes to the groomer, but we couldn’t get her in this week. Tips and prayers appreciated, LOL!! Stay safe and be blessed! XOXO

Hi Beverly. Thanks for sharing your life and your style with us. 💞
Love your blogs and try-ons! Also, I’m pinning your posts. Thanks!
Love the Amazon striped sweater! Feels like 100 degrees here in N Y so that’s not going anywhere near my body right now. Lol. Good luck with the bath, I set up a child’s pool in the yard to bathe my 70 lb hound, he’s too big for the shower.
Love your blog. Trying out some of the jeans!
I love your posts they’re the highlight of my mornings.
I’m not sure if it is the excitement of getting your post, or if the first outfit is the hook. I always pine after that first look, lol!
Lol!! That first outfit is a WOW!! I love it!! Thank you so much for that sweet comment!! You girls boost my mood ha!! Have a great day!!❤️❤️
Love, love, love the camo tee! I’m so ordering this to go with the gray ON jeans from last weeks post! Thanks Beverly!
I’m so glad you’re going to fill us in about your family. I’m a fairly new subscriber and have been confused, ha:) Love your blog and your amazing, upbeat attitude. Thank you!
Lol!! I have been getting a lot of emails about who this person is or that person. So I figured I would give you girls the short version of who everyone is, what all I have been through that got me to the blog. My life should be a book lol ( probably wouldn’t be a page turner though 😂) Hope you enjoy!!
Love your posts. Thank you for taking the time to shop for all of us. 💕
Will definitely pin more!! Thanks for the suggestions on a couple books👍 Have been trying to make a little time for myself with a good book!!
Love your blog. I also understand having unruly hair lol.will gladly pin. We have a 50 lb pointer boxer mix who is not in love with bath time. It is always a shower for us both, good luck
I will definitely pin your outfits. I always look forward to your posts and outfit inspirations. I, too, live in NC and these HOT and humid days do force a lot of us girls to put our hair up. Enjoy your weekend!
Love the blog so much! Thanks Beverly!
I will pin, too! I love your style and you definitely inspire my teacher wardrobe! ☺️ Matthew 5:16
Love the earth tones! They are great to mix and match. I’m currently building a capsule wardrobe, so it’s great to have outfit inspiration!! Thank you!!!
I love your style. You have definitely pushed me out of my comfort zone to try new styles.
Lots of goodies, especially love the jacket and the t-shirt with the detailed sleeves. And great books. I read most of them but have to check out “A woman of no importance”. Sounds like good reading. Thanks and will pin away!!
Hi Bev! Loved that you included some book recommendations in the blog today. Will definitely check those out. Loved the link to the Cato Fall line and pinned the leopard sweater. Thank you for your posts…I look forward to reading them not only for the product advice but also for the connection to others through the comments. Good luck with the dog bathing!
I went to Gap and bought a pair of the cigarette jeans you have worn so much. I love them as well! In fact my daughter in law had to go get a pair too. Very comfy. I’ll start pinning as well to help you out.
That portable charger is THE BEST! it holds a charge on its own for a long time! … heading to Pinterest now, hope it all gets worked out!
Love your blog and your style!!! Pinning away😊

Love your blog. The styles I. Not crazy about now. I am not a fan of the loose kind of sloppy look. But this too will pass. Lol. I do like the split neck tunic. Good luck with the dog bath. Hold his nose when he is going to shake. It stops them.
