Holiday Inspired Try-On Session: Amazon, Old Navy, and Express

Happy hump day and, most importantly, Veteran’s Day. I am beyond grateful for all the men and women who have served and protected us.

Today I’ve got a Holiday Inspired Try-On Session. Whether it’s Thanksgiving, or Christmas, casual or dressing up, I have a little bit of everything.

This mock neck sweater from Old Navy in crimson cranberry, and I paired it with snakeskin print loafers from Express.

I can’t get enough red buffalo plaid during the holiday season! This sherpa pullover is comfy and on sale for under $25.

Wouldn’t this be pretty for a family photo for Christmas? I love this puff sleeve top, and I paired it with coated black jeans.

This plaid top is from Express and sold out, but this one from Old Navy in red plaid is similar. I added a black puffer vest from Amazon.

This isn’t a holiday outfit, but if you’re running errands, this is a lightweight, water-resistant puffer coat from Amazon that’s perfect for a cold day.

I love a tie-neck blouse, this one comes in several colors, but of course, I love this ‘desire red’ color.

This blouse is from Amazon, and I love the high collar and the animal print pattern.

I love wearing green this time of year, and this is a cozy chunky knit sweater from Amazon.

While the holidays may look different this year, I still want to wear some holiday inspired clothes.

What is your family doing for Thanksgiving this year?

Thank you for taking the time out of your day to stop by my blog. I’m also on FacebookPinterest, and Instagram.

Beauty For the Heart~~ This morning, I went to my workout class. When we’re doing our cool down at the end of the class, they usually play a Christian song. This morning they played, I Know That You Are Good by Big Daddy Weave.

The lyrics encouraged me, I hope they encourage you.

You don’t answer all my questions
But You hear me when I speak
You don’t keep my heart from breakin’
But when it does, You weep with me
You’re so close that I can feel You
When I’ve lost the words to pray
And though my eyes have never seen You
I’ve seen enough to say

I know that You are good
I know that You are kind
I know that You are so much more
Than what I leave behind
I know that I am loved
I know that I am safe
‘Cause even in the fire to live is Christ, to die is gain
I know that You are good

Have a blessed day!

  1. Cyndi,
    Thanks for all the cute holiday outfit ideas! I am going to pick up a couple of these tops. I look forward to your posts and especially your beauty for the heart- so encouraging and that song is one of my favorites! And from a proud military wife thanks for honoring our veterans too 🇺🇸

  2. I bought that cute plaid blouse from J Crew Factory that you posted in Ladies XXS and the elastic on one sleeve is sewn in wrong as to not puff as the other one. I love it & it fits so I’m gonna take to a seamtress today and see if she can add elastic to one wrist opening. I love all these too. Especially those last pair of booties! Thanks for sharing all of your great finds ! You should be a ladies model as you look great in everything!

  3. I enjoy seeing such a variety of outfits for various occasions. I can duplicate many of these from shopping my closet.. I really like the chunky sweater from amazon I’ll need to look that up! Today is our Remembrance Day 🇨🇦 and we honor and say thank you to all who proudly served…

  4. Everything you style looks great on you. Even though I really like the things you style, I love your Beauty For The Heart and your love for the Lord.

  5. Thank you so much for sharing so many different items from Amazon, as well as retailers that are more budget friendly! Because Larry is a very high risk cancer patient, it will just be the two of us for Thanksgiving and Christmas. But, we are so very blessed that he is doing good battling the incurable cancer, we can accept keeping him safe by not being with family. Beautiful words in the song.

  6. I love the buffalo plaid pullover and the beautiful red blouse. You’re right, it would be perfect to wear for Christmas family photos. Thanks for all you do to keep us current on fashion. Thanks, too, for honoring our veterans. I am a former Navy Wave and my husband served in the U.S. Air Force.

  7. Thank you for the BFTH song lyrics. Needed that. Been a rough month with so many things. Trying to count my blessings. Love all that you styled today. I know you say you can’t keep everything, so I’d love if you’d tell us what you do keep. Also could you do a Week recap sometime of what you actually wore for the week? Those are fun when Jo-Lynne does them. Anyway, this Thanksgiving will be just my husband and I at my middle daughters house with her husband and baby girl. My other kids go to their spouses side. I’m just glad I’m not hosting this year. Just can’t get into it. Trying to get ready for Christmas. Lots of meal planning to do with multiple family food allergies. I do have all my Christmas shopping done but one gift. So that feels good. Didn’t want to mess with delayed shipping and empty covid shelves.

  8. Beautiful outfits today, Cyndi – love them all. I especially appreciate the budget friendly items. I follow several bloggers, and one of them posted a very casual travel outfit today that cost over $2000. Sorry that is way over the top and I could never justify that. So thank you for giving us common folk some trendy fashion we can afford. The BFTH was so good and I love Big Daddy Weave.

  9. Great holiday outfit ideas. Thanks for sharing the song; I love that one. I ended up in hospital for a couple days, scary. It was a very bad viral infection but it was a mystery at first, I realized I really wasn’t alone. Jesus is always there. Prayers for my sweet long time friend and her family; she is entering Hospice after a 7 year battle with stage 4 ovarian cancer. She will be going Home to be with Jesus soon.

  10. I love love love these Holiday outfit posts! That red blouse is beautiful & looks stunning on you! Also love that green & white sweater. It’s so fun to be festive-and we all need more of it this year!

    My extended family recently tested positive for CoVid, so we’ll be staying home this Thanksgiving, unfortunately. They’re all 4 hours away and I hate missing Holidays. But being sick would be worse. -I hate that they’re suffering!

    Your Beauty for the Heart is always SO appreciated! I love that song- how can you not just praise Jesus with those words?! 😍
