Hi gals! I don’t know why, but I keep thinking we’re one day further along with the week than we are. Alas, it is Thursday! I think I’m thrown off a little because I am preparing to go out of town to see family next weekend, and it just can’t get here soon enough. But instead of rushing along I thought I’d share with you two final end of summer styles.
I’ll be turning my focus completely to preparing for fall next week. So let’s enjoy these last two summer styles first. They’re both from Christopher and Banks, and I know many of my readers enjoy that retailer.
The products in today’s post were gifted to me by Christopher and Banks but only for the purposes of showing them on Instagram. I am under no obligation to share them here. All opinions expressed are genuine and unsolicited. I value your trust more than anything.
Isn’t this ombre printed stripe top fun? And it comes in two other pretty color combinations, too. I’m wearing a size small, and it’s a nice but tailored fit.
I’m wearing the Signature Slimming ankle jean in the Shaped fit. And I’m wearing a size 6, which is what I usually wear in Christopher and Banks jeans. They’re a very comfortable fit and the length is a true ankle length on my 5’8″ frame. They’re also available in petite and women’s sizes.
Right now Christopher and Banks is offering 50% off one full-price item with code 73511. This deal ends September 3.
I wore my Tory Burch Miller sandals with this look. I definitely like the nude sandals here. They keep the outfit pared down and modern. (Remember yesterday’s video???) But if you like the sandals, but not the price, you might want to check out these more economical sandals with similar styling.
You could certainly wear this outfit into the early fall. And the same could be said of my next end of summer style, too.
These are the same ankle jeans as in the last outfit. While Christopher and Banks jeans are sized generously, I do find them to be quite comfortable and wearable.
I decided to put this outfit together really based on this pretty floral print ruana. I think it’s a great summer into fall topper. It’s 40% off.
My silver flip flops are from a couple of seasons ago, but similar metallic flip flops are still available for a song. Remember, I pointed out in this post that adding metallic shoes is a great way to lighten an outfit up.
By the way, do you ever shop the LiketoKnow.it app? Did you know that I sometimes post shoppable outfits there that I don’t necessarily share anywhere else? You can download the app on your phone and use it when you’re looking for something particular or when you just want to browse your favorite influencers’ styles. It’s a great way to shop without having to read through blog posts to find the look you wanted. I invite you to follow me on the LiketoKnow.it app.

Blessed for My Day
I eat lunch alone most days. I fix myself something simple and nutritious to eat and sit down with my phone tuned into YouTube videos or my television tuned to some British show I’ve recorded. I try to get my mind off of work as much as possible and take a true break.
But I always pause to pray before I eat. Not out of habit or compulsion, but because that seems like such a nice time to pray for the people in my life. I think about what they may be doing, the challenges their facing and the patterns of their unique days. And I pray for them.
But I wanted you to know that quite frequently I pray for you, too. Indeed, I do. I don’t know a whole lot about you, other than you show up here quite frequently…or maybe just once in a while. And I know that you’re probably a woman like me who has some weighty things on your mind, some people you’re trying to love well and some questions about life. And so, based on that little bit of information, I lift you up to the Father and ask Him to bless you mightily.
I do not cease to give thanks for you, remembering you in my prayers, that the God of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of glory, may give you the Spirit of wisdom and of revelation in the knowledge of him, having the eyes of your hearts enlightened, that you may know what is the hope to which he has called you, what are the riches of his glorious inheritance in the saints, and what is the immeasurable greatness of his power toward us who believe, according to the working of his great might that he worked in Christ when he raised him from the dead and seated him at his right hand in the heavenly places… ~ Ephesians 1:16-20
