Summer Fashion-Navy loves Orange

It’s no secret that I love navy and orange. Add that to a summer dress and I’m in love. It’s Day 18 of 31 days of summer fashion.

I purchased these shoes at Macy’s about a month ago. The brand is Alfani, and I can’t find the exact pair online but they are at Macy’s.

What’s your favorite colors to mix and match?

Beauty For the Heart~~My husband and I are passionate about sharing Christ. We believe sometimes we have to change, to stay relevant in our culture. Not the message but the way we share the message.

Jen Hatmaker, speaker and author says this, “I’ve learned that the easiest place to stay comfortably off-mission is in the western church, where we are doing a lovely job of serving the saved and ignoring everyone else.”

Something to think about, don’t you think?

Have a blessed day!

Hey ladies! It’s day 17 of my 31 days of summer fashion. Yesterday was a mild day in Ky. The temperature was in the 70′s and the evenings have been in the 50′s.

Has anyone else had unusually cool weather this summer?

Beauty For the Heart~~Our family has been through a rough 10 months. But my husband and I were talking about how most families are going through some type of difficulty. No one is immune from hardships.

Thankfully, God reminds us that, “Blessed is the man who remains steadfast under trial, for when he has stood the test he will receive the crown of life, which God has promised to those who love him.” James 1:12

Let’s remain faithful!

Have a blessed day!

Summer Fashion+Simple Summer Skin Tips

I’m doing two posts in one today. I’m teaming up with some lovely ladies for a simple summer series. But I’m also doing an outfit post for my 31 days of summer fashion. Whew!
Simple-Summer-Series (1)

First, I’ll share my Simple Summer Skin Tips. Most of us know these but since it’s the middle of July and it’s pretty hot outside, we can always use the reminder.

1. Use sunscreen. Although I don’t always have it on my body if I’m not outside, I always have it on my face. It’s in my skincare and my foundation. Gone are the days where I lay outside and bake in the sun for hours. I just don’t do it. I use self tanners to give my skin a glow.

2. Drink plenty of water. I drink water all day long. I add my Young Living Lemon essential oil which is a powerful antioxidant.

3. Cleans your skin morning and night. You want to make sure you wash off the toxins on your skin.

4. Exfoliate-Since I use self tanners, I have to exfoliate every week. It helps your self tanners look better.

5. Moisturize-Wow, the older I get, the more I realize how important moisturizing is for my skin.

Summer heat and sun can be hard on our skin so make sure you’re doing these summer skin tips to help your skin look it’s best!

Now, for What I Wore. It’s day 16 of my 31 days of summer fashion. Yesterday was errand day for me so I dressed comfortable and casual.

I’ve had this purse for a while and I purchased it from Marshall’s.

On a side note, several of you asked about these wedge heels from my post yesterday, I purchased them at Shoe Sensation but this store is not online. One of my readers found them at 6 p.m. Yay!! So go here to find these wedge heels.

Summer Fashion For Women Over 40

It’s day 15 of my 31 days of summer fashion. My husband and I love to go out to dinner and see a movie together so I’m sharing a date night outfit.

There haven’t been any movies I’m dying to see this summer. If you follow me on Instagram, you know I’m addicted to 24 and I’ve been watching it from my Amazon prime account. (Do you have Amazon prime? I love it!)

Anyhoo, this is just a fun outfit. I love pink and black. I added a chunky necklace that I’ve had for several years. I’m also wearing gold hoop earrings, I recently purchased from Banana Republic.

Summer Fashion-For Women Over 40

I’m glad to be back home but as you can imagine, I’m exhausted! I also didn’t get to snap a picture yesterday so I’m cheating, and sharing some summer fashion from last summer.

I realized I haven’t worn any of these outfits this summer so I need to wear them before the season is over.

Beauty For the Heart~~This past week, Jen and I were talking about Elisabeth Elliot. She’s a christian writer and author. I’ve been looking up some things about her. I read one of her books year ago.

Here’s a quote by Elisabeth Elliot that’s so true of us as women, “One reason we are so harried and hurried is that we make yesterday and tomorrow our business, when all that legitimately concerns us is today. If we really have too much to do, there are some items on the agenda which God did not put there. Let us submit the list to Him and ask Him to indicate which items we must delete. There is always time to do the will of God. If we are too busy to do that, we are too busy.”

Let’s focus on today! Because each day is a gift and before we know it, it will be gone.

 Have a blessed day!

Sunday Encouragement-Friendships

I’m heading home from Haven today. I’ve had a wonderful time but I’m ready to be home! One of the blessings that has come out of my blogging is the friendships I’ve formed with other bloggers.

friends

I spent a lot of time with Becky from Organizing Made Fun and Jen from Balancing Beauty and Bedlam (Jen and I were roomies!) We not only have blogging in common but we are sisters in Christ.

I need friends like Becky and Jen, they remind me  of what’s important. They challenge me to grow in my faith. Proverbs 27:17 says, As iron sharpens iron, so one man sharpens another.

It’s important for us to have friends that help us grow in our faith. As women, we sometimes don’t take the time to build friendships with other women. But we need each other and we need to encourage each other.

Do you try to build friendships with other women? Do you have women that you can share your faith with?

Yesterday we went to dinner at Seasons 52. I love this restaurant, if you have one near you, you should go, immediately. :-) (Again, these were taken with my iphone, ugh!)

On the way to Haven I listened to a CD that a friend made for me after my Mom passed away. I have listened to it hundreds of times. This is one of the songs on the CD. I think I’ve shared it before but I love love it.

 

Have a blessed day!
