Friday Fashion-Cable Knit Sweater

Happy Friday! If you’re like me, your weekends are starting to fill up with things to do for the holidays. It’s always nice to have something to put on that’s quick and easy.

What’s better on these cold chilly days to pull out a cable knit sweater. I recently received this one in my Stitch fix box and it was love at first sight!

This picture shows a more accurate color of the sweater and I added my tan wedge booties from Rack Room Shoes. I love these wedges!!

Gap has lots of cable knit sweaters. This style would look great with a plaid shirt.

I love this one from Macy’s. Add a plaid scarf and you’re ready to go!

Don’t you love throwing on a comfy sweater on a cold chilly day? Add a cup of hot coffee and I’m in heaven! :-)

Beauty for the Heart~~This time of the year we’re inundated with people asking us to give. Give to this cause, or that cause. Children need gifts, families need help with meals and the list goes on.

If you’re ever in doubt if we should give, Hebrews 13:16 says, And do not forget to do good and to share with others, for with such sacrifices God is pleased.

Let’s bless us others by giving!

Have a blessed day!

What I Wore-Fashion Over 40

Happy hump day! It’s What I Wore-Fashion Over 40 and today I’m styling a puffy vest. 

I purchased this plaid shirt from LOFT and I’ll be honest, I like it, but I don’t think pink is my color. Good to know!! I’ve struggled with styling it.

I finally styled it with a black puffy vest from Gap and I like it.

Beauty For the Heart~~God has been nudging me lately to make sure I’m nurturing my friendships. Both my online friends and my real life friends.

Friendship is a gift and it takes time to build strong friendships. But as women, we need them. We don’t need to be so busy in our daily lives that we neglect spending time with other women.

So this week take some time to call a friend, have lunch or send a note. You’ll be blessed!

Friendship can weather most things and thrive in thin soil-but it needs a little mulch of letters and phone calls and small silly presents every so often-just to save it from drying out completely. -Pam Brown

Have a blessed day!

31 Days of Fall Fashion (Day 31)

Well hello and welcome to day 31 of my 31 Days of Fall Fashion! Although I’m kind of excited to be finished with the outfit a day, I’m not happy that the month of October is over.

I wait all year for this one month because it’s my favorite, and then it’s gone in a blink of an eye! Sigh.

I realized that I had gone through the 31 days and not shared a dress. I think?? I didn’t look back but I don’t remember sharing one. Of course at my age, I do forget things. Ha!

31 Days of Fall Fashion (Day 31)

For some reason I was in the mood to style a denim dress. Something about it just seemed fallish.

31 Days of Fall Fashion (Day 31)

This leopard scarf I ordered a few years ago. It was like $2.99 and maybe from Taiwan?? I can’t remember. I wasn’t sure I would ever get it, but low and behold about 2 months later, I did. It’s not an infinity scarf but I tied it to make it work like one. It’s lightweight and perfect to wear like this.

31 Days of Fall Fashion (Day 31)

I found this denim dress at Gap on clearance. Gap has some really good stuff in their clearance area. If I hadn’t had Colt (he’s my 3 year old grandson) with me when I was shopping, I could have found several more items. He did not appreciate the clearance section nearly as much as I did.

Do you have a denim dress? It’s great to style with leggings in the colder months.

Beauty For the Heart~~1 Samuel 16:7, “The Lord does not look at the things man looks at. Man looks at the outward appearance, but the Lord looks at the heart.”

Let’s make sure our hearts overflowing with beauty!

Have a blessed day!

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.

31 Days of Fall Fashion (Day 30)

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.

31 Days of Fall Fashion (Day 29)

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

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.

31 Days of Fall Fashion (Day 28)
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.

31 Days of Fall Fashion (Day 28)

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!
