26 Days of Summer Fashion (Day 13)

Welcome to Summer Fashion! It’s Day 13 and our weather is hot so it’s a shorts kind of day. I’m also giving away A $50 gift card so read the whole post!

We are having some steamy hot weather and I’m keeping cool with this short sleeve top from LOFT and of course shorts.

26 Days of Summer Fashion (Day 13)
I did a front tuck, I know not everyone likes a front tuck. ๐Ÿ™‚ This top is more coral than the pinkish color in these pictures. Coral and green seem to be popular colors to mix together this summer.

Beauty for the Heart~~I thought it would be appropriate to share an Elisabeth Elliot quote today since she passed away on Sunday. Heaven gained a beautiful soul!

The will of God is not something you add to your life. Itโ€™s a course you choose. You either line yourself up with the Son of God . . . or you capitulate to the principle which governs the rest of the world. -Elisabeth Elliot

Have a blessed day!

  1. I love the necklace. I am so conscience about my stomach and my weight that I would be too nervous about wearing the necklace. But give me some time. I’ll be all over it! Even if it is out of style.

  2. I haven’t styled a Y necklace yet. I do have a long tassel necklace that I love, but with a 2 year old climbing all over my lap, I haven’t worn it as much as I would like for fear she will break it.

  3. I don’t have a Y necklace but if I win this gift card, I’m going to buy one! I love your shorts!!!

  4. I like the outfit but I can’t wear heeled shoes…not even wedges except for to church..(just a short time)…but regular flat brown sandals would be good as well.. Always love to read your posts! God Bless you for inspiring and sharing with ladies everywhere…

  5. I love those shoes but they look so high. 3 1/2 in? I usually don’t go past 2 3/4 inches. Are they hard to walk in? I sent you a message about what eyeliner you suggested early on. Now I can’t find it or remember it. Please let me know. Thanks. You look so cute.

  6. Hi Cyndi. I’ve not seen any of these necklaces, but I will start looking. I need a versatile long necklace that can go with everything. Have a beautiful day & stay cool ๐Ÿ™‚

  7. I read your blog every day and love your daily style inspirations plus sweet encouragement. The necklaces are gorgeous! Thank you for the contest, and thank you for what you do every day.

  8. I haven’t found any y necklaces but I’m still looking! I love the length of those shorts. Conservative but cute and stylish! Have a great day!!!!????

  9. I look forward to reading your blog every day. I find that I am noticing fashion trends more since I have been following your posts. I also love that you include inspirational and scripture quotes, because I believe that true beauty comes from the inside. Thanks for sharing your inner and outer beauty with us!

  10. Love the necklace – would be so fun to win something! Love the classy styles you wear – perfect for this 40ish y/o girl in TX!

  11. I love the Y necklace – my daughter gave me a bright, colored one for mother’s day. It’s been a fun new accessory. I love that these will go with anything!

  12. I do not own a tassel necklace and would love to win! Thanks for keeping me in touch with what is fashionable for over 40!

  13. I absolutely LOVE this outfit! I’ve said it before, but your adorable outfits aren’t just for women over 40. I’m a twenty something gal and plan to replicate this outfit asap! Haven’t tried the Y necklaces, but I think it would elongate my short torso!

  14. Oh Cindy ~ I just love reading your posts, you’re so encouraging and I learn something new about Jesus every day ๐Ÿ˜€ It’s like devotions and fashion fun all at the same time ๐Ÿ˜€ Love the new Y necklace!!

  15. I love that necklace on you! I have one from the 90s, which I have always loved–would love to have an updated 2015 one!

  16. I DO have a Y necklace but I honestly never even thought of layering it. I have always worn it as a stand-alone. Since reading this, I will definitely try it- I like the way it looks. Love your outfit, by the way. This blog is such a day-brightener for me, keep up the good work!!

  17. If I win the gift card, I will definitely use it to purchase a Y necklace since it’s something my husband cannot make. It’s really hit in GA now also! Your love for Christ shines through! Have a blessed day!

  18. I love the cross necklace. I haven’t tried the Y necklace but will look for one. I love the shorts length. Shirt looks cute too!

  19. I loved the Kendra Scott tassel necklace you wore so much that I had to go out and get one! The Y necklace is super cute, too. Of course, I had to hop over to their website and check it out and now I want one! Thanks for all your fashion advice, I certainly do use it quite often ๐Ÿ™‚

  20. Bauble Bar is a great place to get your fix on fashionable and trendy jewelry but with super prices. Check out their sale items. I also find that the Loft is a great place for great clothes for us fashionable women! Thanks,

  21. Love the necklace but have not purchased one as of yet. Just purchased a animal print belt yesterday. Thought I was going have to wait until the fall…guess I was wrong!

  22. Oops, my first comment didn’t work! Anyway, I like the layered necklace look, but would have to see the Y necklace on…just wondering where it would end on my torso. Don’t want to emphasize that tummy ๐Ÿ˜‰

  23. I loved that you used the leopard belt with this look. It reminds me that the leopard print has become a neutral fixture both in cold and hot months in our wardrobe.

  24. Hi cyndi, love your outfit. Wish I could wear shorts. Love Y necklaces. I have a tassel necklace but not a Y. Thanks for the chance to win!

  25. I haven’t tried a “Y” necklace yet ๐Ÿ™‚
    Necklaces are my new obsession though…everywhere I go I’m looking for cute new ones, particularly long necklaces.
    I’d LOVE to try Bauble Bar!!!
    Thanks for the opportunity Cyndiโ™ฅ (Love reading your blog…everyday!!!)

  26. I love the tassel Y necklace. That’s what I’d use my card for. I look forward to your posts everyday. You have wonderful taste!

  27. I have not purchased a Y necklace. But I really like the peach/green combination!! And the belt sets it all off!

  28. Hi Cyndi, love your outfit. Wish I could wear shorts. I love Y necklaces. I have a tassel necklace but not a Y. Thanks so much for the chance to win!

  29. I just love seeing all the great things you find and wear. You have me buying from places I never did and loving the new stuff! Thanks!

  30. I just bought a bar necklace from BaubleBar that has 3 layers. As a matter of fact, I wore it yesterday. I discovered BaubleBar a few months ago and have purchased a few things. I can tell you from experience that their Customer Service is great! Solved an issue via email in a very timely manner!

  31. I haven’t tried the Y necklace yet but I sure will if I win this gift card! Thanks for offering it to us.

  32. Great outfit! I work in a classroom where necklaces can be a hazard. Now that school is out, I’ve been eyeing the longer necklaces and thinking about updating my “non work” clothes with a fun accessory.

  33. Hi Cyndi. You look fab and I do like the Y necklace too. I have just been and bought 2 pair of shorts same length and style as yours, I tried them in the changing room which I hate and had a wedge on at the time and they looked great, well my daughter passed them. I’m 51 now and think everything is achievable if you try.
    Have a lovely hot steamy day. Still chilly here in the UK.

  34. I have not styled a Y necklace yet but I am adding to my list to try on vacation. Love Loft clothes, they fit so well and their t-shirts seem to last forever. Our weather has been sultry also so am wearing more shorts after work in the evenings.

  35. I do have a Y Necklace I received in my May Popsugar Box…I love it…it is perfect for layering…I love Baublebar and would love to win the giveaway. You are in inspiration Cyndi–beautiful on the outside as well as a beautiful Godly Spirit!

  36. I love the whole outfit and definitely am going to look for a y necklace. It is a nice delicate, not over the top touch.

  37. Love the look posted today. I have not tried a Y necklace, but my goal this year is to accessorize more with my outfits.

  38. I like the look of layering with a y necklace. Haven’t tried them, but, considering getting one to try.

  39. I absolutely love and look forward to reading your blog daily! You are such an inspiration in both fashion and faith! Thank you????????

  40. Very cute outfit and I love the necklaces. I too, more favor the tassel Y necklace but all are classy! Thank you Cyndi for the chance to win a Baublebar gift card! Good luck to everyone!

  41. Love the Y necklace look…..dainty, yet long and stylish! AND…..PS…..I also love the “front tuck” ๐Ÿ™‚

  42. I do like to layer necklaces but don’t have may work. These Y necklaces are great!

    Love this casual look today too! This outfit is right up my alley!

  43. Absolutely love everything about your style. I look forward to my daily emails to see what you are wearing next ๐Ÿ™‚

  44. Love the necklaces! I have seen a lot of this style of necklace and have been thinking of purchasing one but have not specifically come across one yet. The outfit is beautiful on you, as always, but unfortunately my shorts days are over so I have been enjoying ankle pants and the long skirts instead.

  45. I have never worn the “Y” necklaces yet, but love the way they look. They delicate enough that you can wear them with a t-shirt or light weight top. Will be my go to jewerly for the summer, since I live where it is hot too.

  46. Love the color combination of your outfit! I haven’t tried a Y necklace yet, would be great for hot days when you don’t want anything heavy. I need to look at the T-shirts at Loft the next time I’m in Sevierville! Thanks for your inspiration! ๐Ÿ™‚

  47. Love the front tuck look, but it’s not flattering on me, so I choose the tops which are shorter in front than back as a compromise. Love everything about your blog and look forward to it daily!

  48. Cyndi, Love the outfit. I think I have the clothes that I could actually copy it. I will give it a try soon. I do love the front tuck it is the only way I tuck things in now. I have tried layering necklaces but do not have a y necklace. Would love to experiment with one of the Baublebar ones they are really cute. I also may have to check out the Loft t-shirts you look great! Thanks for the giveaway and for the summer ideas. I always follow but don’t always post!

  49. I keep seeing these necklaces, but haven’t taken the plunge. Might have to try one! (And cute outfit! I have those pieces too, so will copy this one!)

  50. Love the olive with a bright tee! The front tuck is funny…I like the look but when I try it it feels so contrived. And I don’t know that I’ve seen it much at all in real life, just in advertising and on fashion blogs. Keep encouraging us to try things!

  51. I just love you Cyndi! I love your style, your heart, and your town! Harrodsburg is mine and my best friend, Kim’s, home away from home. I sent her an invite to your blog on Facebook this morning. Were your ears burning? We were talking about you. Oh…I also love your hair! Have a wonderful day and thank you for your inspiration to us….forty something women ๐Ÿ™‚

  52. I do like the layering technique with necklaces…it adds a little more interest! I also think the front tuck is somewhat better than just leaving the shirt hanging out. Sometimes leaving the shirt totally untucked appears sloppy, whereas the half tuck shows you put some thought into it! jodie

  53. I like the lighter jewelry pieces for summer. I’ve heard of Baublebar, but haven’t tried them yet.

  54. I love a front tuck. I wore a blouse with a front tuck to church the other day and a woman came up behind me and said “you need to either tuck that blouse in or pull it out. One way or the other.” LOL. I explained the front tuck. She didn’t get it. SMH We, my husband and I, laughed about it later. When you work at the church, you are just open to folks comments about your attire. I love the tassel necklace as well. Cute outfit too!

  55. I started reading your blog about a month ago. I’ve so enjoyed the way you share your faith as well as your tips on fashion! I look forward to your blog each day. As far as the necklaces go, I do not have a Y necklace, but they are really pretty.

  56. Love the necklace. It is the first time I remember seeing a Y necklace. I tried to sign up for gift card. It did not work. I received verbage about leaving comments, but when I clicked on it nothing would allow me to actually post a message. I was using my email which was an option and what I prefer. Very disappointing.

    1. Hey Fonda, If you use your email, click the leave a comment box and then just click the I COMMENTED button. You should be entered!
      Hope that helps!
      Cyndi

  57. Love this!! I bought some olive green shorts at JCPenney & have worn a black tee and a white tee with them, now I’ll have to try coral or pink! I’m so glad I found you on Pinterest, I literally follow these posts everyday, yours is the first I read after my SheReadsTruth & P31 devotionals!!
    Thank you for being such a blessing!!

  58. I do not own a Y necklace but will put it on my shopping list while I am in Chicago this week. I just bought a coral top so looking forward to wearing it.

  59. Coral and green are two of my favorite colors together. This look is simple yet classy.
    Loving your summer outfits!

  60. Such a cute outfit! love the leopard belt – makes the outfit “not just shorts and a tee” :). Do you like the shirt? I looked at that same shirt at Loft last week but couldn’t decide if I liked the fabric so I didn’t buy. Love the color though, and the necklaces dress it up too. It’s steamy in Knoxville, TN too and we are melting here – hopefully relief is coming this weekend.

  61. I didn’t even know what a Y necklace was until I scrolled down and looked at yours in the pic. very cute look. I have several long necklaces but just might need to add a Y necklace to my collection

  62. Thanks for such a lovely, inspiring blog. I have been following you for a few months and look forward to your posts every morning. I have a very similar classic style like you. I haven’t tried layering necklaces but it would be fun to try. Thanks for the giveaway and your beautiful heart.

  63. Love the whole ensemble, especially the necklace! I don’t currently own a Y necklace, but I need one!

  64. I’m missing the Y necklace but other than that I’m wearing almost the same outfit! Lol! (Btw I love a front tuck!)

  65. I so appreciate your blog and having a place to go to for ideas for dressing a slightly more mature body ๐Ÿ™‚

  66. I do not have a Y necklace, but I love longer necklaces, especially in the summer. I would wear it with my various tanks & shorts.

  67. Love all of the jewelry that you style. I am so excited. I loved the little black and white summer dress you styled recently from Target. I had to have one! I had to go to 3 yes 3 Targets before I found one in my size! Looke forward every day to seeing your posts. You are such an inspiration to me!

  68. Each day/week when you post, I try to put together an outfit based on your recommendations. But I’ve also purchased a few of the things you have worn. I LOVE the pink dress you wore for Easter (or some spring thing) from Macy’s, so I did get that one. I just love it! Thanks for all you do! ๐Ÿ™‚

  69. I don’t have a Y necklace but would love one! I have gotten so many great ideas from your blog. Rarely do you have anything that I don’t like.

  70. Beautiful day, gorgeous lady and pretty color combo on the outfit. I had just returned from a family reunion and also wore olive green and coral. Thank for your devotion to inspiring others. I’m so glad to have found your blog.

  71. I just love your blog ๐Ÿ™‚ You have given me so much “fashion inspiration” I have even bought a few things after I have seen them on you. Your my first stop every morning and I look forward to each and every post ๐Ÿ™‚

  72. I do not have a Y necklace and know very little about them, and that is “Y” I follow you so that I can learn. Keep up the good job!

  73. I do not have a Y necklace and would love one. I don’t have a tassel necklace either because I haven’t found one that I really like. But I haven’t given up the search just yet! I really enjoy your blog and look forward to seeing it each day! Thank you!

  74. I like this outfit – very cute ๐Ÿ™‚

    I like the tassel and leaf necklaces, but I don’t do well with jewelry; I I buy it, but then I always think I look silly, so I stick to my safe, boring old silver chain.

  75. I have not sprung for a Y necklace, but that may be the one piece I buy this season. (I think I have too much costume jewelry and am trying to lay off.). I wish I looked as good in shorts as you do, Cyndi. Great outfit today, and it is humid and hot here in Texas, too–with the tropical storm headed our way. Loving this series; I know it must be a ton of work.

  76. I love necklaces and this one is so stylish! Thanks for all of your fashion advice and great outfit combinations!

  77. I enjoy reading your blog every day! You have inspired me to try some different styles that are a bit out of my comfort zone, but I am enjoying some “new looks” and have even gotten positive comments from friends about what I was wearing. Thanks for the inspiration! I like the look of the Y necklace, but do not own one……yet!????

  78. I like the look of the Y necklace. Adding accessories is an area I am trying to do more as I donโ€˜t have many. Enjoy your blog.

  79. Cyndi, Thank you so much for your blog, you are truly beautiful and inspirational!
    I have never had a Baublebar necklace but they are gorgeous and I would love one!

  80. I look forward to reading your post every day. You’re one classy lady….love your style!

    Blessings,
    Kathy

  81. You look SO good in deep, bright colors!! Coral is a great color for you, as is the bright blue you wore yesterday ????. Glad you finally got some warm weather, I know you’re not a fan of cold – we’ve been having some nice mild weather here in Minnesota, which I REALLY appreciate, since my daughter and I run every day – so far so good!!! Enjoy your day Cyndi!!!

  82. I LOVE long necklaces and would love to have a Long Y Necklace. This is another cute outfit…and so simple!

  83. Love the necklace, I have not yet tried the y necklace. I love your style too so nice! ๐Ÿ™‚

  84. Oh…..I want to win this!!!!!! How thoughtful of you to share with others! BTW – I love the outfit you are wearing in this write-up today! ๐Ÿ™‚

  85. Love this outfit ! I find myself doing the front tuck more than not, it saves my tee’s from getting little holes from my belts. I think I need to try the necklace !!

  86. New subscriber but long time lurker. I love your style. Trying to pump up my own frumpy look thanks for inspiration. I like the front tuck!!

  87. Love your colors today! Just ordered some new shorts for my upcoming Florida vacation. I will also wear shorts as long as I can! And I love sandal weather! Need to take more of a cue from you on accessories, especially jewelry.

  88. I don’t have a Y necklace, yet! Love Bauble Bar, my honey got me a tassle necklace from them for Mother’s Day ???? I look forward to your blog everyday!

  89. Thank you so much for this giveaway. I have not styled these necklaces yet but would love to. You always look so put together and stylish. I always enjoy your looks.

  90. I love this color combo! I have the same shorts too. I am wondering, besides white and this coral pink, what other colors would work with this color? (I LOVE the necklace!!)

  91. I have those exact same shorts and the shirt…..would have never thought to put the two together! I can’t wait to put my own outfit together! I do not have the Y necklace; fingers crossed ๐Ÿ˜‰

  92. I would wear a long necklace just like you did…with a Tshirt. I love that simple look. I already subscribe! Thanks for the chance at a win.

  93. I love the Y necklace will have to get one soon! Also love your blog, always like your outfit ideas!

  95. Love this look! I can’t wait to try it, thank you for being such an inspiration to women over 40 everywhere

  96. I’m going to raid my 19 year old daughters room for a Y necklace! She has one that’s adorable! Love the color combo too!

  100. I love the look of the Y layering necklace but I don’t have one of my own yet. It would be fun to win this! ๐Ÿ™‚

  101. Such a cute outfit.. I have not tried the Y necklace but have liked them for a long time. I just may need to find myself one.
    Blessings, -Tina

  102. Wow! That’s a lot of comments! I haven’t tried a y necklace but I would like too….as I am guessing A Lot of others would too:)!

    1. Ladies: if you’re interested in the Y necklaces, new customers can enter their email address for a coupon code to be emailed to you and get 15% off your first order!!

  103. I will have to take a closer look at those “y” necklaces, they are very feminine looking. My first thought was that I would catch them on something – I can be a bit of a klutz.

  104. Love the Y necklace! Versatile for lots of outfits/ensembles. Love it layered with the shorter necklace also! Your posts have me itching to buy the spike-y bracelet from Stella & Dot – next on my “wish list”!

  105. I haven’t tried a Y necklace yet but agree, they are super cute. I do see that Baublebar has 25% off necklaces today with code summerstatement. Bonus! I look forward to your posts each day. Thank you!

  106. Love the outfit and the Y-necklace is so feminine and I will have to invest in one…or maybe I’ll be lucky enough to win!

  107. I need to explore adding beautiful necklaces to my wardrobe. I travel for work, so this would be a good way to add a bit of pizzaz to my traditionally boring black travel wear.

  108. I haven’t tried the Y necklaces yet. But I do like the way they look. Thanks for sharing that idea!

  109. I love the Y necklaces you show, especially the one with the feather on the end. Not a big fan of the front tuck, though. Sorry. ๐Ÿ™‚

  110. Yea!!!
    Today was the last day of school for those of us in Greensboro NC!
    I will miss my first graders.
    Cyndi you look so cute and cool.

  111. That necklace is so cute!! I love layering necklaces and Stella & Dot is one of my favorites!! Have a blessed day!!!

  112. Love to see your posts daily…they give me ideas and inspiration to keep the forties fabulous and not frumpy.
    I haven’t tried the Y necklace yet, but it’s on my list of things to buy.

  113. Thank you for your blog! I look forward to it every day!! ๐Ÿ™‚ I’m glad you mentioned Elisabeth Elliot’s home going. I hadn’t heard. She was such a godly woman of God!!

  114. I love the layering of the necklaces-the belt is cute with the shorts! I enjoy your blog and am always inspired by your words of encouragement!! Thank you!!

  115. I enjoy reading your blog each day! Love your style! Thank you so much!
    My sister and I are both pastor’s wives and we are your biggest fans! ????

  116. I am blessed to have found your website. You set a good example to many women in many places. Thank you.

  117. I really like the look of the Y-necklaces, just havenโ€™t found one Iโ€™m willing to spend money on yet ๐Ÿ™‚ Thanks for the inspiration!

  118. I like the tassel one too! And I love your coral top today. Great summer color! I’m still in my early thirties but try to dress modestly yet still stylish, so I love your blog.

  119. I love your style. I look forward to seeing what new pieces you are wearing and how you have styled them. Keep up the great inspiration looks.

  120. Love the layered necklaces, I have a couple of them!
    Cute shorts. I like the color and style of them. I would tuck the top in all around, with my luck someone would tell me my shirts untucked if I didn’t. Lol!

  121. Like the outfit and jewelry. I am not a fan of the partial tuck. It reminds me of being in a hurry and not finishing tucking my shirt in after using the bathroom. I know a lot of people are showing that look but some things just make me fell like I am trying too hard.

  122. Cyndi, that outfit color combo is one of my faves. I especially love how you’ve accented it with the leopard print belt. What a great idea… I’m stealing it!! Also wanted to ask you about your nails. Can you show us a close up? They look beautiful. Do you do them yourself?
    Stay cool in this hot weather!

  123. I love this necklace. Simple yet elegant. Mostly, I loved the life and teaching of Elisabeth Elliott and felt compelled to add to your comment about Heaven gaining such a precious saint! ๐Ÿ™‚ A life well lived for Jesus Christ! May we as women finish well, just as she did!

  124. This is exactly how I would like to look — casually well put together. I never know how to wear necklaces with the scoop or V-neck shirts. Really cute!

  125. Love the Y necklaces, I want one, and I have been looking for bar necklace. I look forward to seeing your post everyday, it has giving many helpful ideas. Have a great day!!! :))

  126. I love the way you style everything in such a simple way. Yet it is always so cute! Love the necklace layering to add a little something to a casual outfit. The wedges are a great touch too to add some oomph.

  127. I am thrilled to see your shorts! That is the length I like to wear and I keep wondering if I’m too old! I just don’t like the longer style on me. You look great!

  128. I always think that you need a short necklace with a scoop neck – so I like the layering you did with the short and long. Thanks for helping me think out side my box.

  129. This is such a cute outfit! Makes me want to put on the same if only we have such weather here in the San Francisco Bay Area.

  130. Love the combination of green and coral. I have the green shorts…now I have to find a nice coral shirt. My daughter talks about “Bauble Bar” jewelry all the time. Keeping my fingers crossed that I am the lucky winner! ๐Ÿ™‚

    1. Oops, I think I signed in with my daughter’s email by accident. I do subscribe and left a comment. – Kathy (olsonsforchrist@msn.com)

  131. I love the Y necklaces because they aren’t so big and overbearing like a lot of the necklaces are today. Thank you for all of your helpful fashion ideas. I’ve learned a lot already since starting to follow your blog.

  132. LOVE the necklace! I would love to try one or several! Thanks for all your great tips and sweet attitude. It is refreshing to read your blog everyday. Love you!

  133. Adorable outfit. I have green shorts and wondered what top to wear. Coral is perfect and maybe a light scarf to pop the colors together. Thank you for reminding us girls to focus on inner beauty. Hugs Cyndi

  134. I’ve been noticing those Y necklaces everywhere this year! I love how they’re light weight for the summer.

  135. I really enjoy reading your blog !! You give me inspiration to feel pretty and stylish even in middle age!!

  136. Even though you mentioned your top is coral, I think it would look nice with a bright pink top with the green shorts also. Love those wedges too! –Anne

  137. Love this outfit. Riviera shorts from Loft are my favorite. I don’t have a y necklace but I think I need one

  138. i have not styled a y necklace, but love the gold and delicate-ness of it. Also I wore a very similar outfit yesterday!

  139. I recently purchased a makeup bag from Bauble Bar that says “Hello Gorgeous” on the front. It’s cute and useful. Would love to have a pretty piece of jewelry from them.

  140. I really enjoy your blog and get so many outfit ideas from you. Thank you for taking the time to share your “grace & beauty” with all of us.

  141. I have one y necklace I got at Lucky brand! It is adorable and would love another one!
    I love your blog! You and I have the same taste and wear a lot of the same things! And I don’t usually read blogs but I love yours so much I am looking for more like yours????

  142. I hadn’t seen the “Y” necklace, until your pictures today. I like the delicate look and the fact it would layer nicely with a shorter length necklace!

  143. I don’t have one of these long necklaces! I love the daintier look of these, than the ones I have seen in the past (the tassle necklace) I would love to win one! Love your comfy style. I have stole several looks from you ๐Ÿ™‚

  144. Cute Cyndi, and hopefully i’ll win that gift certificate as i haven’t been to the Bauble Bar yet, just trying to stop being so “things” oriented. Lately i feel that visiting a lot of blogs has made me buy mroe and more stuff, and i already a lot of stuff. I’m trying to be more selective. I haven’t bought anything for Allison’s summer challenge, it’s all too casual and none appropriate for work. I’d like to check out the jewelry though to make my clothes work a bit harder! Amy

  145. I love the look! I have 1 short necklace and would love to buy the Y necklace, the look would be complete. I love your style, your so chic!

  146. Cyndi, Love the outfit and the necklace is very pretty too., but then again you always look great

  147. I love the look of these necklaces! I especially like them layered with a shorter necklace, so hopefully I will win this giveaway and be able to try it out for myself!!

  148. I love coral, and it looks so nice with green! I have not tried a Y necklace yet, but would love to.

  149. You are one of my favorite bloggers for realistic fashion choices for gals of a “certain age.” Your faith-filled Sunday blogs are a nice inspiration too!

  150. Love the Y necklaces! I don’t currently have one, but very interested. Also, I love coral and green together. Gives me some good ideas I can use. Thank you!

  151. I found your blog on Pinterest and I just love it! We have very similar style and taste. I love the Y necklace but have yet to purchase one…this would be a great chance! Thanks for sharing your classic, classy style with all of us!!

  152. I hate the privilege to meet Elizabeth Elliot about 20 years ago. It’s was a wonderful experience to hear her speak. Heaven gained a beautiful soul!

    I really love the Y necklaces. You’re killing me with your wedges. I’m so into them this year.

  153. I love your blog and your style. I have not tried a “y” necklace yet. I’m always needing a light little necklace to go with lots of my summer tops. I think this necklace is just what I need. Thanks for the giveaway!!

  154. I’ve just recently found your blog…and I love it! I, too, am 40 something, a wife, and mother of 2 daughters; also a teacher. I’m always trying to figure out what’s best for me (style wise) and yet not embarrass myself or my girls. ๐Ÿ™‚
    I had a Y necklace years ago…I wonder what I did with that.

  155. I have a couple of Y necklaces that sit closer to the neck. I haven’t worn them in a very long time. I had several when they were popular years ago. Love reading your blog. It’s nice to not only be able to follow someone that’s also over 40, but that loves the Lord as well too. Take care!

  156. I haven’t tried the Y style necklace but it looks as though it would fit into my personal style

  157. Thank you for sharing your life with us! You are such an inspiration with all the negative things going on in the world around us. Many blessings to you and your family.

  158. I usually wear a short necklace, dangling necklaces get caught on my clothes but I like others to wear tassels.

  159. Oh would love to win a necklace like yours. I love coming here and seeing your stylish outfits. It is so helpful and also being inspired to love the Lord more.
    Thank you much!

  160. not sure my entry showed up first time so here it goes again. Would love to win this stylish necklace. Love stopping by here and seeing your outfits and getting inspired to love the Lord more. Thank you!

  161. I love your blog, Cindi! I enjoy the fashion tips and love the clothing and accessories that you wear. I don’t own a y necklace, but would enjoy trying one very soon.
    Have a blessed weekend.

  162. Love your blog. I am over 40 and love looking at the style you show.. Would love to win and be able to purchase a neat necklace.. You are such an inspiration . Love your wonderful comments on Sunday…

  163. I don’t have one of the y necklaces, but I love all my tassel necklaces. You are looking so slim these days. What are you doing? I love reading your Beauty From the Heart messages. I need to be reminded of those things, and it’s always right on time! God is so good…..He knows exactly what we need to hear. Even though I’m older than you, I want to be like you when I grow up! ๐Ÿ˜‰

  164. Hi Cyndi! Thanks for the great giveaway:) I haven’t styled a Y necklace yet but love accessories…especially jewelry! Love your blog! Thanks for representing what a woman who seeks to reflect beauty that is not just on the surface but from a joyful heart in the Lord. I truly appreciate what you do!
    Blessings,
    Denise
