A Look Back At June 2013

I cannot believe it’s the last day of June 2013! Where is the summer going? Pretty soon I’m going to be sharing fall fashion. What??

Oh well, June has been a great month so in case you missed anything here’s some of my most popular posts.

Thank you so much for stopping by here! You all are such a blessing! I wish we could sit some time and have coffee and share stories about our children (and grandchildren if you have any). Wouldn’t that be fun!

Beauty for the Heart~~ Every time I listen to this song, I get chill bumps and tears flow. Oh how thankful I am to have a Savior who loves me in spite of my failures and mistakes!

Happy Saturday! Today I’m sharing my Favorite Fashion PINS. The theme is summer dresses! I love to wear comfortable and casual dresses or skirts this time of the year. They’re pretty and perfect to wear in warm weather.

White Heels Are Back!

It’s hard to believe, but white heels are back in again! And they’re back in a big way, at least for summer. I’ve steered clear from white heels for quite a while but the cute new styles have me rethinking my decision.

I know what you all are thinking about these heels! You would break your neck if you wore them, but they are cute! :-)

Maxi Skirt Fashion For Women Over 40

You’ve probably noticed all the maxi skirt fashion for spring and summer. Some of you have emailed me and asked if women over 40 can wear them. Can I just say “Yes!” This is a great trend for women over 40!

The key is knowing how to style them for your body type. If you are thin with slender hips you can wear them with your shirts tucked in or tied at the waist.

But if you’re like me, and you’re curvy in your hip area then it’s better to leave your shirt out (this is my opinion). If I tied a knot at my waist, it would accentuate my hips and they don’t need any accentuating!

You can’t see my shoes but I wore black sandles. I also added my jean jacket because I wore this to church and I felt I needed to cover up a little.

Lastly, if you have some extra weight in your stomach area, you can wear a looser fitting blouse over your maxi skirt.

Have you tried wearing a maxi skirt this spring? How do you wear your skirt?

Mixing Fashion & Faith

Over a year ago I wrote a post titled, Can you Mix Fashion & Jesus? I wasn’t sure how well it would go over but the response was incredibly positive. I decided to start moving my blog in the direction of fashion & faith and it has been quite a journey!

I’ve even gotten a little more specific with sharing tips for women over 40. Blogland is full of young fashion bloggers, but everything they wear and use isn’t always appropriate for my age group.

I love blogging about fashion & faith and this past Friday, I was blessed to get to share with a group of young Moms, called MOPS (mothers of preschoolers) about Fashion & Faith. It was so much fun!

Fashion & Faith

This was the only picture I took and it was of the beginning of my power point presentation. I shared about fashion and makeup tips. We also talked about the spring trends and the spring colors.

These are the colors to wear for Spring/Summer 2013. Emerald green is going to be the most popular color of the season.

Fashion & Faith

After we talked about fashion, I was able to talk about the most important part, and that’s about my faith. I shared that true beauty is found in having a personal relationship with Jesus. I love this quote and shared it too.

Lastly, I wanted to let you know that I’m putting together a Faq page. I get a lot of questions about the products I use in my hair, makeup I use, etc. So I thought I would keep an updated page on my blog with all those questions answered. So look for that coming soon!

If you have a question you would like for me to add, please let me know in the comments or you can email me at cyndispivey(at)gmail(dot)com.

Thanks so much for stopping by!

Have a blessed day!

I’m Ready For Spring Fashion

Happy Monday friends! I hope you had a wonderful weekend. I don’t know about you all, but I can’t help but think of Spring. The weather isn’t showing any signs of it yet but that doesn’t mean I can’t start taking a look at some spring fashion.

Here’s a few of my favorite things:

I'm Thinking Spring

1.1969 always skinny skimmer jeans in mint green from Gap - Oh I love these jeans especially in the mint color. I want to add these to my spring wardrobe.

2. Women’s Prabal Gurung from Target Wedge Sandal with Ankle Strap - Can’t wait to start wearing sandals. I love these in black and white.

3. INC International Concepts Top, Three – Quarter-Sleeve Striped Boat Neck Tunic – Stripes are a spring trend and so is black and white. This top has both!

4. Blazer from Banana Republic - I love a blazer and this yellow one from Banana Republic would be perfect for spring.

5. Beaded Teardrop Necklace from Groopdealz - I snagged this necklace from Groopdealz. It’s only 8.95 (regular price is $34.99) and comes in 6 colors. I ordered the mint green. There’s only 2 days remaining on this daily deal so if you want one grab it quick!

Although I love Spring fashion, I sometimes struggle this time of the year with what to wear. One day it’s freezing cold and the next day it’s warmer. I need more transitional pieces.

Are you ready for Spring? Do you have a hard time dressing in the in-between season?

Beauty For the Heart~~Sometimes life can be difficult but remember that Jesus is our source of strength and power. “You then, my child, be strengthened by the grace that is in Christ Jesus.” 2 Timothy 2:1

Have a blessed day!
