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!

Natalia @ Ma Nouvelle Mode // Elle at Elle Sees // Cyndi at Walking in Grace // Alison at Get Your Pretty On // Jen at Yummy, Healthy, Easy

In June I shared a chambray dress, and in July I shared some skin care tips. Today I’m sharing a simple outfit that most of us probably have in our closet and an inexpensive way to buy a denim vest.

Simple Summer Series & A Giveaway!

Denim vests are cute and fun to wear. I purchased this denim jacket at Goodwill and then cut the sleeves off. Voila! I have a denim vest that cost me $5.00.

Simple Summer Series & A Giveaway!

It doesn’t get much simpler than a white t-shirt and shorts. I added accessories: denim vest, leopard print flats and some gold jewelry from Stella & Dot.

Do you have most of these pieces in your closet? 

Beauty For the Heart~~Since we’re talking simple, I thought I’d share a simple but powerful verse. Oh that we would LOVE!

And now these three remain: faith, hope and love. But the greatest of these is love. 1 Corinthians 13:13

Have a blessed day!

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 From The Limited

A few weeks ago, my sister and I went shopping for the Haven Conference. We shopped at The Limited and picked out a navy blue dress for her to wear.

Traci’s wearing the dress in this picture. I think most of you know my sister but in case you don’t she blogs at Beneath My Heart. She’s absolutely gorgeous on the outside but her true beauty is on the inside. We’re best friends and I love her to pieces!

Summer Fashion From The Limited Anyway back to the dress. I liked it so much, I decided to go back and get one. I didn’t get the navy dress but I got a patterned one.

Summer Fashion From The Limited Of course, I added a picture with my denim jacket. I also have a navy blazer that I think would look good with this dress.

The Limited has great business attire and some good sales. Full priced items are 40% off right now. Have you shopped at The Limited? (BTW, this isn’t a sponsored post, I just like The Limited. )

Beauty For the Heart~~A good reminder for today! “God is our refuge. We will not fear, though the earth give way. The nations rage, kingdoms fall. “Be still and know that I am God.” Psalm 46

Take A Dress From Summer To Fall

Oh my! Thank you all so much for the sweet birthday messages yesterday. You made turning 48 a little easier! :-) I had a wonderful day!

One of the dresses I’ve loved wearing this summer is my chambray dress but with fall right around the corner, I thought I would show you how to take a dress from summer to fall.

Take A Dress From Summer To Fall

Summer is the perfect time for a sleeveless chambray dress. Paired with a cute sandal and you’re ready to go.

Take A Dress From Summer To Fall
I usually get cold when I’m inside in the air condition so I always have a denim jacket handy. I get emails asking whether you can wear denim on denim and the answer is YES!

When September rolls around the temperatures are still warm, but I like to transition to a fall look. It’s easy to do by adding a scarf and a pair of ankle boots.

One of the trends for fall is definitely the ankle boot. Have you tried styling the ankle boot?

Beauty For the Heart~~Yesterday as I kept getting Happy Birthday wishes, I kept thinking of what my Mom always said, “my cup runneth over.”  But I missed hearing my Mom’s voice yesterday. I wanted a call from my Mom. The pain of losing her will never go away but the memories I have with her are so so sweet.

In honor of Mom, I’ll share this poem that I’ve shared before:

I’ve never made a fortune
and it’s probably too late now.
But I don’t worry about that much,
I’m happy anyhow.

And as I go along life’s way,
I’m reaping better than I sowed.
I’m drinking from my saucer,
‘Cause my cup has overflowed.

I haven’t got a lot of riches,
and sometimes the going’s tough.
But I’ve got loved ones around me,
and that makes me rich enough.

I thank God for his blessings,
and the mercies He’s bestowed.
I’m drinking from my saucer,
’cause my cup has overflowed.

I remember times when things went wrong,
My faith wore somewhat thin.
But all at once the dark clouds broke,
and the sun peeped through again.

So God, help me not to gripe about
the tough rows that I’ve hoed.
I’m drinking from my saucer,
‘Cause my cup has overflowed.

If God gives me strength and courage,
when the way grows steep and rough.
I’ll not ask for other blessings,
I’m already blessed enough.

And may I never be too busy,
to help others bear their loads.
Then I’ll keep drinking from my saucer,
‘Cause my cup has overflowed. -Author unknown

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.

This is kind of plain but it’s comfortable and I wore  it to run errands.

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!

Beauty For the Heart~~“But God doesn’t call us to be comfortable. He calls us to trust Him so completely that we are unafraid to put ourselves in situations where we will be in trouble if He doesn’t come through.” -Francis Chan
