Friday Fashion For Women Over 40

Well, I was overwhelmed by your comments yesterday. Truthfully, I’m thankful there are women in the same boat that I’m in with menopause, peri-menopause and hormones. We’re in this together ladies!

I’m also excited that I can share some things that have worked for me. I would love to interview my husband and let him share with you all the difference that my essential oils have made in my overall physical health. He can tell a difference!

Let’s be clear, I’m not a doctor but I think most OBGYN’s agree that there are risks with hormone supplements. That’s why it’s important you do the research and do what’s best for YOU. Essential oils have worked for me and the great thing is, there are NO bad side effects. Yay!

More about my crazy hormones and what I’m doing to control them next week! Now let’s get on with Friday Fashion for Women over 40. 

This green blouse from Stitch Fix is probably my favorite top that I’ve worn all summer. It’s comfortable and I love the color.

I recently purchased these leopard print flats from Zappo’s and they’re my favorite pair ever!!!! I love them!! The brand is Roper and they run about 1/2 size big. I usually wear a 7 1/2 but I ordered a 7 and they fit perfectly.

 Do you have an outfit or top that has been your favorite item this summer?

Beauty For the Heart~~I was thinking about how important it is for us to encourage each other. Whether it’s encouraging each other in our faith, our health, parenting etc. We all need encouragement!

Proverbs 12:25 (NLT) says, Worry weighs a person down; an encouraging word cheers a person up. 

Encourage someone today!!

Have a blessed day!

Stitch Fix For Women Over 40

Every time I get a “fix” from Stitch Fix, I question whether I should share it or not? There are lots of bloggers that share about Stitch Fix these days. But I started with them in the early days so they’re kind of like family to me.

Truthfully, I’m passionate about their service because I’ve met the people behind the scenes. I shared about my Stitch Fix trip here, in case some of you missed it. They love what they do!

If I lived in San Francisco, I would be applying for a job at Stitch Fix, even if they hired me to clean the office, I would want to be a part of their team. :-)

Building Your Fall Wardrobe {Jeans}

**This post is from last fall but it’s a good reminder as you start looking at your fall wardrobe. Make sure you have a great pair of jeans!

31 Days of Fall Fashion & Beauty Tips
Hi there! If you’re joining me for the first time, you can catch up with all my 31 Days of Fall Fashion & Beauty Tips here. We’re on Day 11 and we’re Building Your Fall Wardrobe. Today it’s all about a great fitting pair of jeans!

Building Your Fall Wardrobe {little black dress}

We all need a pair of great fitting jeans. I recommend having jeans you can wear with high heels and another pair to wear with flats.

Also, make sure they are flattering for your body type. If you find a pair you like that fits you well, you can buy them in two lengths to wear with flats and heels.

You can also have different styles, boot cut, skinny, straight leg or trousers. It’s important to find the style you like and you feel your best in.

Here’s how to find the right pair of  jeans for you:

  • Focus on the fit.
  • Look for dark wash denim-darker jeans are more slimming.
  • Avoid mommy jeans-mommy jeans are high-waisted, light-washed, with tapered-legs.
  • Don’t wear your daughter’s jeans either!  Clinton Kelly from TLC’s What Not to Wear says, “Anytime you wear something that’s meant for a teen or tween, it says that you don’t know who you are and you’re trying to hold onto your youth. The opposite is actually true: Wearing jeans for younger girls makes you look older. Keep in mind you don’t have to wear the trendiest jean. Find a style you like that’s modern, sleek, and sophisticated. It’s your time to be you!”

Some of my favorite brands of jeans are INC, Calvin Klein, Ralph Lauren, and Banana Republic.

Do you have a great pair jeans? What’s your favorite brand of jeans?

Friday Fashion-Cypress Color

One of the things I thought we’d talk about next week is the Fall 2014 Pantone colors. If you’re picking up some fall accessories or fall fashion, it’s good to know what colors will be popular this fall and the coordinating colors that look good with them.

Cypress is going to be popular for the fall/winter season. Some of the colors cypress can be paired with are coral, white, off white, yellow, and navy.

I recently purchased these pants at The Limited. They’re a little bit lighter than Cypress but they’re definitely close.

Friday Fashion-Cypress Color As the weather gets cooler, I can pair these pants with boots and a sweater.

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!
