Fashion Over 40-What I Wore

Well, the weather finally cleared and we had no snow for a few days. But it was short lived because we have more snow today. Ugh!

Last week we talked about the in-between season. I’m never sure what to wear but I always have a jacket with me. I recently purchased this military style jacket from JC Penny and I’ll be wearing it a lot as the weather turns milder.

I shared this outfit a few weeks ago but I wore it this past week to the Casting Crowns concert.

Another piece of clothing I wear a lot during the in-between season is my denim jacket. It’s a great piece to have especially for women over 40. It’s one of the basic pieces we talk about.

I love a wedge heel. They’re much more comfortable than regular heels don’t you think?

Stylish jackets are a must for me during the in-between season. Do you wear jackets? Do you have a denim jacket?

Beauty For the Heart~~Several weeks ago someone left a comment about wanting to instruct their grown children. They didn’t want to come off as being “preachy”. But they wanted to guide them.

I had to laugh a little when I read that because if you were to ask my grown children, they would definitely call me “preachy”. To be honest, I take it as a compliment. I’m their Mom. Someone needs instruct them in the “right” ways. The world we live in certainly does not do that!

Two scriptures come to my mind. Proverbs 31:26She speaks with wisdom, and faithful instruction is on her tongue. Deuteronomy 11:19, Teach them to your children, talking about them when you sit at home and when you walk along the road, when you lie down and when you get up.

These both tell us to teach our children. It doesn’t say they have to be young. We as Moms, need to share truth with our children, no matter their age.

Have a blessed day!

Fashion Over 40-What I Wore

Happy Hump Day! It’s been one of those crazy weeks for me so I only have one outfit for my Fashion Over 40 post. Partly because some of what I wore, you’ve seen.

It’s getting toward the end of the season and I’m tired of my winter clothes. Can anyone relate?

We are having a couple of warmer days, it’s a tease. But I did get out of my boots and it felt good to wear flats again.

I recently got this Loren Hope bracelet in my Stitch Fix box and I love it.

The necklace I’m wearing is from The Limited and it was on clearance so I can’t find it online. I wasn’t sure how I was going to style it but I added it to this sweater and it seemed to work perfect!

3 Valentine’s Day Outfits

Happy hump day! Valentine’s day is fast approaching and I’ve been thinking about what I’m going to wear (assuming my husband is taking me to dinner, which would be in his best interest!). I’ve picked out 3 Valentine’s day outfits that I might wear.

Of course I love to wear dresses and I found this graphic print dress at The Limited and I added a red necklace.

Since our weather has been dreary, I’m adding color to my outfits to make me feel better. I don’t think you have to wear red for Valentine’s day. Turquoise is one of my favorite colors.

I added brown pants and wedges and then another pop of color with my bracelet.

For a more casual date night, and I’m guessing this could be what I wear, I picked this casual green blouse and added a coral necklace.

The Limited was having a great sale. They had buy one blouse, get one free. They had lots of colors for spring!

Also many of you have asked about my gold toe shoes from Zappos. I bought them over a year ago, and they don’t have them anymore.

I’ve looked everywhere for another pair and I finally found one similar at ASOS. They’re a little pricey but I love mine and wear them all the time. I may order this pair because mine are starting to wear out a little.

You can go here to find them. If you know of anywhere else to purchase them please let us know! (Okay, these are out of stock. Sorry!! Hopefully they’ll have them soon.)

**Update on the gold toe flat, I found another pair on Amazon for $17.99, you can go here.

Are you doing anything special for Valentines Day? What will you be wearing?

Beauty For the Heart~~We were created for eternity. I love this quote from my Experiencing God Bible study:

“God did not create you for time; He created you for eternity. Time—your lifetime on earth—provides the opportunity for you to become acquainted with Him. It provides occasions for Him to develop your character into His likeness. Then eternity will hold its fullest dimensions for you.”

Have a blessed day!

Fashion Over 40-Winter Fashion

Happy Wednesday! In case you’re new around here, every Wednesday I share some outfits I’ve recently worn. The theme right now is winter fashion.

I’m starting to get tired of my winter clothes but I think I’ve still got a few months to go before I’ll be wearing sandals and sleeveless tops.

This past weekend I headed to Cincinnati for a blogging conference. It was for advanced bloggers and it was intense. I went with my sister and my friend Katie.

Here’s what I wore~~

Fashion Over 40-Winter Fashion

Happy Hump Day! I loved blog swapping last week with Jo-Lynne but today I’m back here with some winter fashion.

By the end of February I’m going to be ready to ditch this cold weather. I’m praying for an early spring!

I wore this dress to church Sunday. I wore it last August to the Haven conference when the weather was warm. It’s sleeveless so I added a black cardigan, black tights and boots.

We had one day of above freezing weather so I wore this collared shirt from Target.

You can’t see the necklace I have on very well, so here’s a better picture. It’s from Francesca’s.

I decided to come in, I can’t stand to be outside when it’s cold and snowy.

Fashion Over 40-Winter Outfits

Happy Hump Day! Well, today I’m sharing some winter outfits and can I just say the weather has been brutal. Fashion has not been as important as survival!

For some reason the theme color this week seems to be tan. I have no idea why except again, I was trying to stay warm!

This cable knit cardigan is not slenderizing at all but boy is it warm! It’s perfect to wear when you’re running errands and don’t want to drag a coat around with you.

Several  of you have asked about my winter coat. I’m practical when it comes to a coat and I wear a black coat I purchased several years ago at Macy’s when they were having an after Christmas sale. It’s the Via Spiga brand.

Thankfully, we’re going to warm up a little so I’m hoping to wear something other than big sweaters, scarves, and coats!

Have you all had some crazy cold weather too?
