Summer Fashion-Why I Dress The Way I Do

Happy 1st day of August! I’ve had so much fun with you all over the last 31 days sharing summer fashion. To be honest, it felt weird not posting an outfit picture today.

31 Days of Summer Fashion

Here’s a recap of my 31 days of Summer Fashion. Some of the outfits I loved and some were just so-so.

A couple of you mentioned in your comments, you would like to see some more figure flattering pieces. I took note of that and will try to add more of those to my wardrobe. There’s always room for improvement!

I’m not a person that believes I have to cover myself head to toe. I don’t mind showing my legs, my arms, my knees, or my shoulders and I don’t have a problem wearing something that accentuates my waist.

But….I don’t show my cleavage or my stomach and I don’t wear skirts that are extremely short. There are certain things that are for my husband’s eyes only.

To be honest, when I see an older woman showing too much skin, I cringe. I don’t think it’s needed. You can look cute and classy and not show your breasts or your behind. That’s my opinion.

The one person that comes to my mind that dresses elegant and classy, and she’s much younger, is Kate Middleton. I wish I had her figure!

I love this quote:


I hope that gives you some insight into how I like to dress. I always appreciate your honesty and your opinions.

I also wanted to share with you my new Pinterest board. It’s titled, “What To Wear Now & Into Fall.” I’d love for yo to follow along!

Have a blessed day!

Summer Fashion-Day 31!!!!

Well, it’s Day 31 of my 31 Days of Summer Fashion! Where did this month go? It’s been a fun month but I’m always ready for some change and I can’t wait to start gearing up for fall trends.

You would think I’d save the best for last but I’m actually sharing some outfits that I didn’t love. This dress is from Stitch Fix and I thought I liked it, but after taking pictures, I’m not in love with it. It’s a little snug.

I couldn’t decide if I liked the necklace with this outfit. Here’s the outfit with the necklace.

This is kind of plain but it’s comfortable and I wore  it to run errands.

I usually do 31 days in October so it looks like it’s going to be 31 days of fall and winter fashion. :-) Thank you all for being so kind and thank you for telling your friends and family about my blog. I’m glad there’s a need for fashion for women over 40!

Have a blessed day!
