What I Wore-Easter 2013

Hi there! I’m glad you’ve stopped by. Every Wednesday I share What I Wore. It’s basically fashion for women over 40. Just because we’re a little older doesn’t mean we can’t be fashionable, right?

Today I’m sharing what I wore to church on Sunday. I love dresses and so I enjoy finding a new dress for Easter that I can wear through spring and summer.

What I Wore-Easter 2013

Green seems to be my color choice this spring. Maybe it’s because it’s the Pantone color choice for the year and it’s everywhere!

What I Wore-Easter 2013

Everything I wore, I purchased recently except for my nude wedge heels. I bought them at Payless Shoe Source last fall.

I added some more color with my bracelet and I love the gold cross bracelet too……..

What I Wore-Easter 2013

Here are some other things I used: Sun Labs tanning lotion on my legs and OPI nail color on my toes.

What I Wore-Easter 2013

I think spring is finally going to come to Kentucky this weekend! What’s your favorite color to wear this spring? 

Beauty for the Heart~~I’m working on memorizing scripture and this is the verse I’m working on this week. Philippians 4:8, “Finally, brothers and sisters, whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable—if anything is excellent or praiseworthy—think about such things.”

Have a blessed day!

      Love you outfit! I searched and searched for a dress, but came up empty. I don’t shop often for myself, but could see that a major change has occurred at JCP and Sears. I didn’t make it to our next biggest city that had Marshall’s- maybe this month. Love you, your faith and all that you share to make our world more beautiful.

        Love, love, love! You inspire me to put together real clothes, not just throw on yoga pants like I prefer to every day:) Running by Marshall’s today if I get a chance. Absolutely love the color on you!

          Thank you Amanda!! We have a new Marshall’s and it’s so nice.

          Hi Cyndi!
          Your dress is adorable on you! Thank you for your verse today. My wonderful dad who passed away April 2, 2000 gave me a Bible when I left for college with my name and that verse engraved on the front. This year my oldest will graduate from high school. So today, you brought my dad to me and reminded me that this would make a nice gift for my daughter as well! Thank you so very much!!!!

              Love the color of your dress and accessories! Thanks for reminding me that I should be starting “self tanning” lotion on my legs and arms….I’m winter white!

                I was winter white too! :-)

                Cyndi, I love your dress! You have inspired me too, to put a little fashion & style in my day! Really love your cross bracelet too — I wear mine all the time and have bought 10 of them and given to friends or those going thru some hard times. Just a way to remind them — God loves you (and so do I!)
                Thanks for sharing!

                  Love this and see so much potential for versatility by changing the white top underneath for pops of color.

                            I love the shoes. I think I saw the same style in coral. Do you know if they had them in coral? How do they fit? You are pretty as a picture!

                            Cyndi, where do you buy your self tanner?? I do not recognize that brand. I had my first ever spray tan Friday before Easter. I wore a white skirt and my daughter told me that my legs were as white as my white when I was buying the skirt, so I got a spray tan. LOVE it but it does not last long. Need to start my self-tanning now. Love your dress and I did notice that your legs were tan. lol. I wondered if you tanned in a bed or if it was a self tanner or if you too got a spray tan.

                            • At 2013.04.03 14:46, Cyndi Spivey said:

                              I ordered it from Amazon. If you click on the Sun Tan Labs in my post it will take you there. I love this stuff!! Very forgiving and its not orangey at all.
                              Hope that helps,

                              I love your dress, you are my inspiration. I always look to you, on how to dress for my age. Question, I want to wear colored jeans this spring, but don’t know which kind to get, straight leg, skinny, or what? Please help with your advice.

                              • At 2013.04.03 14:47, Cyndi Spivey said:

                                Straight leg or skinny would be fine. The skinny leg seems to be really popular and the length is above the ankles. I hope that helps!

                                LOVE the dress, Cyndi!! I want one too…. till I saw it’s from Marshall’s :( haha. Love that store but none nowhere near me! :) Have a blessed day Cyndi!

                                  Green is definitely your colour and you’re so cute in that dress. I think you should wear more styles that highlight your waist as the exercise seems to be working.
                                  I was wondering if you were naturally olive or if it was a tanner. I knew you probably wouldn’t go to a tanning bed as you’re trying to look younger, not age yourself permanently.
                                  Everything about this one is great, especially the choice of shoe and bracelet.

                                    Yes my skin is very olive! I never ever go to a tanning bed, I wish they would outlaw them!! I love the Sun Labs tanning lotion. It’s really good!

                                    Love the dress. I was wondering if you can tell me where I can purchase the SUN self tanning lotion. Do you use the tanning lotion often and do you like it? I have used some different ones before but I have trouble with them turning me orange in areas,

                                      Thank you for sharing. Your blog is inspiring and fun to read.

Would you be able to tell me where you bought the plaque that you stand in front of when you take your pictures “Trust in the Lord…”? You give me inspiration and I appreciate you!

I, too, am over 40 and realize that I need to be really observant and intentional while shopping for clothes. Thanks for all the great ideas and tips. I’m a little jealous that you can wear self tanner, though… It gives me the hives! Oh, bother… I’ve decided to just embrace my snowy white skin. In some countries, it’s considered very beautiful! Ha!;)

                                                            So pretty! Plus I adore this style of dress. It always looks great and you don’t have to iron it :)
