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!

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.

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!

Summer Fashion-Day 31!!!!

Well, it’s Day 31 of my 31 Days of Summer Fashion! Where did this month go? It’s been a fun month but I’m always ready for some change and I can’t wait to start gearing up for fall trends.

You would think I’d save the best for last but I’m actually sharing some outfits that I didn’t love. This dress is from Stitch Fix and I thought I liked it, but after taking pictures, I’m not in love with it. It’s a little snug.

I couldn’t decide if I liked the necklace with this outfit. Here’s the outfit with the necklace.

I usually do 31 days in October so it looks like it’s going to be 31 days of fall and winter fashion. :-) Thank you all for being so kind and thank you for telling your friends and family about my blog. I’m glad there’s a need for fashion for women over 40!

Summer Fashion-Pop Of Leopard Print

It’s day 30 of my 31 days of summer fashion. I could not let 31 days go by without sharing a little bit of leopard print. That might be considered a sin in the fashion world. Who doesn’t love a pop of leopard print? If I’m not wearing a statement necklace, I like to wear big earrings. Can you tell?

This is where I like to sit when I’m outside. I wish you could come and join me! We could sit out here for hours and talk about “life.”

Summer Fashion-Pop Of Leopard Print
You’re probably wondering why I didn’t take the bandaid off my finger before I took my pictures. Yes, well I’m wondering the same thing. Maybe because it’s Day 30….

These white jeans just came in the mail. They’re The Limited white jeans I wear all the time. My other pair was a few years old and starting to not look so good. I like them so much I ordered another pair plus they were on sale ($29.99).

 Do you like to pop some leopard print into your outfits?

Beauty For the Heart~~I was recently talking to someone who wasn’t sure about her future. I reminded her that God’s plan is good. I told her to always ask herself, “Is this God’s best for me?” Oh how he wants to give us his best, sometimes we just need to ask!

For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the LORD, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future. Jeremiah 29:11

Have a blessed day!
