I can’t believe we started with hair on Day 2 of Fashion & Beauty For Women Over 40 and today, we’re on shoes! We started at the top and we’ve made it to the bottom.
But we still have a lot to cover in the next 7 days so make sure you don’t miss a day! We’re going to tie it all together.
Before we talk about shoes, I’ll talk about our feet. A pedicure whether done by a professional or done at home is a must. Nothing looks worse than having on a cute pair of sandals or open-toed heels and our toenails and feet looking horrible.
Obviously in the winter time we can hide it better but I still like to have my toes painted. I keep a pumice stone in my shower and use it on my heels every couple of days. I don’t like cracked heels and of course I lotion every day.
Now for our shoes! This is where we get to have fun! I love shoes and I think most women do.
First I’m going to share what Charla Krupp says about shoes in her book, How Not To Look Old. She says, Nothing Ages You Like…..
- Wearing gym sneakers outside the gym
- Boring Classic Pumps (I think I wear these)
- Shoes you can’t walk in
- Out of style shoes
She can be brutally honest, can’t she? Shoes are the accessory that can make us look young and hip or if we’re not careful can make us look really old.
There are 4 styles of shoes she says we shouldn’t wear at our age:
1.Ballet flats with no support.
2. Flip-flops (yikes, I love flip-flops in the summer) unless your at the beach.
3. Espadrilles (shoes that wrap and tie around the calves).
4. Ugg boots (she says save those for your thirteen year old daughter and opt for more sophisticated snow wear.)
I can wear pretty much any kind of shoe (cheap or expensive). Some women have a harder time with their shoes. I recently found a website called Barking Dog Shoes. She shares fashionable shoes for women with fussy feet.
This years trends that I love…..
Do you love shoes as much as I do? Do you love this years fall trends?

Beauty For the Heart~~We’re studying the book of Romans on Wednesday night at church. I loved this verse we studied last night, Romans 2:4, Don’t you see how wonderfully kind, tolerant, and patient God is with you? Does this mean nothing to you? Can’t you see that his kindness is intended to turn you from your sin?
Have a blessed day!
