What I Wore-Fashion Over 40

Happy Wednesday friends! Well if you’re counting, it’s 8 days until Christmas. Yikes! I still have quite a bit to do. But I’m one of those people who work better under pressure.

This past week, I wore several outfits that I have shared before. I wore my vest and scarf again!

I wore this poncho with my tall black boots pictured below.

I did some Christmas shopping and I don’t like to drag around a coat so I wore this checkered open cardigan with my fringe scarf from Target. Perfect for a cold day! (The wind is blowing and my hair is a little wild in these pictures.)

Do you still have some Christmas shopping left to do or are you all done?

Beauty For the Heart~~I had to share this video with you all today. Natalie Hodson is a Healthy Living blogger. She shares recipes and workouts (you do have to pay a monthly fee to get her best recipes and workouts.)

I’ve been thinking lately about the New Year and what I’ll be doing on this blog. I’m so thankful to have my blog and even more thankful that I can now work full time as a blogger. But I’ll be honest, I sometimes wonder how long I can do this?

I’m not getting any younger and does anyone want to look at pictures of an old woman?? I have lots of imperfections and the wrinkles are coming faster and faster. I’m not complaining, I’m just being honest.

This video reminds me that none of us have perfect skin, bodies, hair etc.

We’re not trying to look like we’re teenagers around here. We’re trying to grow old gracefully and more importantly we’re trying to grow in love and self-control, in kindness and gentleness, in goodness and patience, in joy and peace.

 

Therefore we do not lose heart. Though outwardly we are wasting away, yet inwardly we are being renewed day by day. 2 Corinthians 4:16

Thank you so much for joining me here at Walking in Grace & Beauty. I hope you leave here knowing you are ENOUGH and you are loved by God and he made you uniquely YOU!

Have a blessed day!

Christmas Gifts For Young Adult Children

Gone are the days that I get to purchase toys for my children. These days I get Christmas lists emailed to me and the gifts aren’t as fun to buy but at least I know they’ll like them.

I will say, both of our children are single and money is tight (Cory is paying back law school and Courtney is a single Mom)  so they appreciate anything we buy them!

Christmas Gifts For Young Adult Children

Here are some Christmas Gifts For Young Adult Children:

My son Cory is the fashion guru of the family. I know you thought it was me but I like to think I taught him everything he knows! Cory’s an attorney and a stylish one at that.

His favorite places to shop online are Hautelook.com, Nordstrom.comGilt.com, and JackThreads.com

These are some gifts Cory would like. I’m not sure about the French press but if you have a young man who loves coffee, it would make a great gift.

Watch-Macy’s//Jogger pants-Macy’s (I ordered Cory these) //American Crew fiber for hair-Target//Skin care-Art of Shaving//French press coffee-Target

Courtney is also fashion conscious, and she is an amazing decorator. Her home is so cute! She has so much of her Nana (my Mom) in her. She loves TJ Maxx, Marshall’s and Target.

Courtney and Cory have always been very close. They’re 15 months a part (Courtney is the oldest) and I’m proud of both of them. I’m excited to see what God has planned for their future.

Christmas Gifts For Young Adult Children

Do you have any great gift ideas for young adult children?

Beauty For the Heart~~One of the things my children will tell you is I still encourage them in their relationship with the Lord. I say this all the time but If I don’t encourage my kids to walk with the Lord, who will?

Scripture says, “So commit yourselves wholeheartedly to these words of mine. Tie them to your hands and wear them on your forehead as reminders. Teach them to your children. Talk about them when you are at home and when you are on the road, when you are going to bed and when you are getting up.”

It doesn’t say stop after they turn 18 or 21 years old. Continue to share Christ and encourage your children no matter what their age!

Have a blessed day!

What To Wear On New Year’s Eve

Welcome back to our 12 Days of Holiday Outfits! Today it’s What To Wear On New Year’s Eve.

What To Wear On New Year's Eve
So let’s talk about New Year’s Eve. First, we never go to a New Year’s Eve party. I know, we’re lame, I admit it. (For some reason most people don’t invite their pastor and pastor’s wife, hmm…)

We could go out to dinner but we don’t usually do that either. By the time New Year’s Eve rolls around, I’m done and a nice quiet evening sounds perfect to me.

So if I’m going to be honest, this is probably what I’ll be wearing New Year’s Eve. Wayne and I do stay up and watch the ball drop, we’re not that lame, we can stay up until midnight. :-)

What To Wear On New Year's Eve

But if I did go out, I think I would wear something like this. I’ve been wanting to try some leather pants. These are from INC and have a faux leather trim down the sides. The all leather were a little much for me.

Of course I would have to wear some type of wrap or I would freeze.

Cabi has some cute clothes to choose from and I love this red top. It’s festive and would look great with black pants and some cute accessories.

We have a Cabi giveaway going on and you can go here to enter!

So what do you do on New Year’s Eve? Do you go out or stay home? 

Make sure to visit Jo-Lynne and Kristin to see what they’re styling for What To Wear On Christmas Day.

Beauty For the Heart~~A good verse for the New Year, Colossians 3:15-17 (The Message)

Let the peace of Christ keep you in tune with each other, in step with each other. None of this going off and doing your own thing. And cultivate thankfulness. Let the Word of Christ—the Message—have the run of the house. Give it plenty of room in your lives. Instruct and direct one another using good common sense. And sing, sing your hearts out to God! Let every detail in your lives—words, actions, whatever—be done in the name of the Master, Jesus, thanking God the Father every step of the way.

Have a blessed day!

I Need A Silent Night

Every December I begin the month wanting to prepare. Not for the get-togethers with family and friends, or for all the baking or gift wrapping, but I want to prepare my heart.

I Need A Silent Night

I don’t want to get caught up in all the hustle and bustle and miss the most important part of this holy season.

The world is trying hard to make us forget. To not let us celebrate His birth. But for me, it’s about Jesus’ birth. Scripture says,

For to us a child is born, to us a son is given, and the government will be on his shoulders. And he will be called Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace. Of the increase of his government and peace there will be no end. He will reign on David’s throne and over his kingdom, establishing and upholding it with justice and righteousness from that time on and forever. The zeal of the LORD Almighty will accomplish this. Isaiah 9:6-7

Today, slow down and soak up the gift of Christmas. A baby born to save the world. Maybe you need a Silent Night.

 

Have a blessed Sunday!

The 5 Body Types & How To Dress Them

I’m so excited to be home for a little while on a Saturday. I have been doing some more decorating and some online shopping.

Wayne and I are headed to Shaker Village for dinner. It’s very festive there this time of year and we live close by so we thought we’d go enjoy it.

I’ve been getting some emails on body types. Last January, I wrote about 5 different body types. It’s important to know your body type so when you go shopping you know what styles will look best on you.

Here are the 5 body types that most women fall in to:

The Hourglass body type

How-to-dress-the-hourglass-body-type
The Pear body type

The Banana body type

I hope you have a wonderful Saturday and take some time to enjoy the season. It goes by so fast!

Favorite Fashion PINS Friday

Happy Friday friends! It’s been a while since I did a Favorite Fashion PINS Friday so I thought I’d share some PINS with you. Pinterest is my favorite way to get outfit ideas.

If I have an outfit I want to style, I type it in the search bar on Pinterest and voila! I usually find lots of ideas.

Anyway here’s some of my favorite PINS.

You know I’m loving fair isle sweaters and I love this one.

This vest is everywhere!

Plaid scarf, enough said.

I’m huge fan of basic wardrobe pieces. If you have them, you always have something to wear.

I don’t want to forget to add color during these dreary winter months. I love this pop of color!

I looked everywhere this fall for a vest like this and never found one. I have a military jacket, but I like the vest too.

I’m keeping it pretty short and sweet today. We have lots of things to get done this weekend. It’s hard to believe how quickly the month is flying by!

Do you have a busy weekend planned? Or do you get to stay home and watch some Christmas movies?

I’d love for you to connect with me on your favorite social media platform. I’m on FacebookInstagram and Pinterest!

Beauty For the Heart~~“Fallen man is not simply an imperfect creature who needs improvement. He is a rebel who must lay down his arms.” ~C.S. Lewis

We need Jesus. Every day is a battle and we need to surrender to Him. It’s a daily process.

Have a blessed day!
