31 Days of Fall Fashion (Day 30)

Good morning! It’s Day 30 of my 31 Days of Fall Fashion and all I can think to say is, Yeehaw!

In case some of you aren’t from the south, yeehaw is an interjection expressing joy or exuberance. And I’m pretty joyful that I’m finishing up this 31 days of fall fashion.

Okay, I feel this post needs some explaining. I pinned this picture because I like it. This lady exudes coolness. Don’t you think?

31 Days of Fall Fashion (Day 30)

Some people can pull that off so easy and then others of us, well, let’s just say we’re not that cool. Ask my kids, they’ll amen that in a heartbeat!

I try to tell them there was a time in my life that I was cool. You know, before kids.

I drove a light blue pinto car in high school for heaven’s sake and it had a big silver foot in the floorboard to change the lights on bright. Seriously, could I have been any cooler??

Well, somewhere along the way I lost the cool gene. I’m okay with that but every once in a while I try to pull it off and that’s where my outfit comes in.

I was trying to copy the picture above, sort of. I’m wearing a black graphic tee. I added my gap boyfriend cardigan and some ankle boots but it’s not working for me.

That’s what I get for trying to copy a picture of a cool girl. No fear, I’m just running some errands today and working at home. I’ll pretend I’m cool. :-)

One of my favorite tips for women over 40 is don’t be so matchy matchy. Matchy matchy ages us. Some times I pull this off better than others.

Today wasn’t great but I’m still okay with it. It’s fun to try new things. Step out of your comfort zone!!

Do you struggle with trying to be matchy matchy?

Beauty For the Heart~~If there’s ever a time of year that I see God’s beauty, it has to be fall. The colors of all the trees here in Kentucky are breathtaking.

I kind of feel God is showing off and it makes me smile. His handiwork is amazing. So today I’ll share a psalm because it just seems appropriate.

Great is the Lord and most worthy of praise; his greatness no one can fathom. Psalm 145:3

Have a blessed day friends!

31 Days of Fall Fashion (Day 29)

Happy Hump Day! It’s Day 29 of my 31 Days of Fall Fashion. Today I’m mixing stripes and polka dots.

There are so many ways to wear a striped shirt but today I’m adding a scarf and boots which is perfect for fall and the much cooler weather we’re having today.

I added a moto flight jacket from LOFT since the weather is cold outside.

Beauty For the Heart~~God’s word is truth. Read it, study it and believe it. Satan tells us lies, it’s time we claim the truth!

“We’re going to have to let truth scream louder to our souls than the lies that have infected us.”  -Beth Moore

Have a blessed day!

31 Days of Fall Fashion (Day 28)

It’s Day 28 of my 31 Days of Fall Fashion. 3 days left!! I’m kind of ready to stop snapping pictures of my outfits everyday. I’ll still share my outfits but I’ll go back to 2 to 3 times a week.

We have lots of things to talk about in November like hair, make up, holiday fashion etc. And of course for those of you wanting to join Alison and I, we’ll be Building Your Wardrobe Basics. Whew! It’s going to be a busy month!

Today I’m wearing some classic pieces.

One of the trends I like is adding some bling to a classic chambray shirt. This necklace is from Rocksbox. I’m trying this service out right now and I’ll share more about it in November.

We’re having some mild weather so I’m enjoying my leopard print flats before the weather changes tonight and turns cold. Then it will be back to boots!

I’m also going to try and add some extra things to my email subscribers. I’ll share some personal family photos or some things we’re doing etc.

Beauty For the Heart~~I wanted to give you an update on Baby Bennett. So many of you have been faithfully praying and I know her family feels the prayers!

Sunday Encouragement-Praying For Bennett

The surgery went very well. The surgeon was able to resect nearly all of the tumor leaving just a small nodule behind.  The nodule that was left was adjacent to areas that, if damaged, would have harmed Bennett.

The next couple of weeks will be dedicated to recovery and getting as strong as possible before the next hurdle – high dose chemotherapy.

They still need our prayers and I will let you know when they start the chemo and have to start removing that tape again. In the meantime please keep praying!

Have a blessed day!

31 Days of Fall Fashion (Day 27) and an Exciting Announcement!

It’s Day 27 of my 31 Days of Fall Fashion and I’m absolutely giddy about my exciting announcement. Yes, you’re seeing it right!

I’m thrilled to be joining the gorgeous Alison of Get Your Pretty On in a Build Your Wardrobe Basics challenge.

Many of you already know Alison because I’ve shared her outfits with you here on Walking in Grace & Beauty. But in case you haven’t met her, Alison is an over 40 blogger (hard to believe) who has fabulous style. I absolutely love her blog!

I also love that Alison and I share a solid foundation in our faith and she and I both believe that true beauty begins on the inside. I’m so honored that we are collaborating together!

Here’s how the Build Your Wardrobe Basics will work: Alison and I will provide a shopping list of wardrobe basics plus 21 days of outfits created from the pieces on that list. You’re free to shop where you want and spend as much or as little as you’d like. A lot of women find that they have some of the pieces in their closets already. It’s an affordable way to make a personal style service accessible to every woman.

Who is the Build Your Wardrobe Basics Challenge for?

Alison and I specifically created this challenge for women over 40 who are either starting a core wardrobe from scratch or are ready to update their basic wardrobe. We will provide 21 days of mix and match outfit options created from the pieces in the core wardrobe shopping list provided. It will be great for women who work outside of the home and those that don’t. There will even be some special occasion outfit options perfect for the upcoming holiday season!

What types of outfits will be in the Build Your Wardrobe Basics Challenge?

The outfits in this challenge will be a mixture of casual and dressier looks incorporating pieces like boot cut jeans, skinny jeans, black dress pants and even a little black dress. Footwear and accessories will also be included. These outfits will work for most seasons.

Here are two sample outfits from the challenge.

Sample-Outfit-1

Sample-Outfit-2

How much will it cost to participate?

We believe every woman should have access to great style, that’s why this challenge will be available for $24.99 for regular registration. (The price will increase slightly during late registration.)

When does registration open?

Registration will open this Friday, October 31st and remain open through Thursday, November 6th at midnight ET. The shopping list of wardrobe basics will be sent out at 12:01 a.m. on Friday, November 7th. If you’d like an e-mail reminder when registration opens, get on the list HERE.

If you have any questions at all between now and the time registration opens, feel free to leave them in the comments or e-mail me or Cyndi with them. We can’t wait to share this challenge with you!

I hope you’ll share this with other women who you think would be a good fit for this challenge. Let’s build a basic wardrobe together that will help us all look fabulous!

So what do you think? Are you in?

Here’s my latest outfit for Day 26 of my 31 Days of Fall Fashion.

31 Days Of Fall Fashion (Day 25)

Welcome to Day 25 of my 31 Days of Fall Fashion! You all are going to crack up, but I’m styling my burgundy cords again.

I told you yesterday that my sister and I are at the Allume conference and we’re having a blast!

31 Days Of Fall Fashion (Day 25)

Last night we had a few hours before dinner and decided to head outside and walk around downtown Greenville. It’s a beautiful city!

I had Traci take a quick picture. Have I talked you into burgundy cords yet?

I promise, no more burgundy cords for a few weeks!

Beauty for the Heart~~This weekend we’ve been talking about hospitality. They’re stretching us to think outside of the box. Hospitality doesn’t mean we have to invite people we know into our homes but also strangers.

I think of my Mom when I think of this. She was always helping someone and it was usually someone none of us knew. I loved that about her. She wanted to be the hands and feet of Christ.

I’ll never forget waking up one morning to find a homeless man sleeping on our couch!

Scripture says, Don’t forget to show hospitality to strangers, for some who have done this have entertained angels without realizing it! Hebrews 13:2

Have a blessed day!

31 Days Of Fall Fashion (Day 23)

Welcome to Walking In Grace & Beauty! Can I just say I have the best readers ever. You all bless me more than you will ever know.

Yesterday I mentioned the no show socks and many of you shared the best brands, and how much you love them. You’re such a help to everyone who reads this blog. THANK YOU!!

Today is Day 23 of my 31 Days of Fall Fashion. One item I had on my wish list this fall was a poncho sweater. I recently found this one at Marshall’s.

It’s comfortable and warm.

I added my black sandals from Rack Room Shoes. These are definitely my favorite shoes right now. I love the height of the heel and they’re comfortable. I can wear these all day!

Have you tried the poncho sweater?

Beauty For the Heart~~A little color on your cheek can make all the difference. I love a pretty blush.

Did you know scripture talks about cheeks? In Luke 6:29 Jesus stretches us to love our enemies. He tells us, “If someone slaps you on one cheek, turn to them the other also.”

Obviously He doesn’t want people to hit but he wants us to love the unloveable. Love those who aren’t easy to love. Remember we’re not responsible for how others treat us, but we are responsible for how we treat others.

How well are you loving people today?

Have a blessed day!
