I added and off white blouse and some black knit leggings. I’m not going to tuck my shirt in on Thanksgiving day. I’m planning on eating a lot of food. :-)

The shirt is longer in the back and hangs out from the vest. #1 rule when wear leggings make sure your exterior is covered!

Casual Fashion For Women Over 40

Today I’m sharing some casual fashion for women over 40. My casual fashion consists of a plaid shirt and booties which I seem to have a thing for these days.

I’ve worn this Old Navy shirt with a red vest but decided to wear it alone today.

I love to add  bracelets to my outfit. The gold one is from Stella & Dot and I wear it all the time.

I’ve talked about my trench coat before but it’s a staple piece for me. I love to wear it this time of the year when the weather is chilly. A trench coat adds a little class to a basic outfit.

Please tell me I’m not alone in my love for plaid shirts and booties?? 

Beauty For the Heart~~I’m typing this post from a hospital room. My father-in-law has pneumonia and my husband and I are sitting with him. He’s 88 years old and at that age, pneumonia can be a little dangerous.

Hopefully he’ll get to go home soon. Hospitals are no fun!

As I sit here and listen to all that’s going on outside his room, I hear a lot of different conversations. Some are sweet, some are laced with obscenities, some are from people who are sick and need help.

It reminds me how each of us are different…..our backgrounds, our lifestyles, even our genetics.

But God in his perfect plan, created each of us. He loves us and he wants us to know Him. It’s a beautiful thing!

“The God who made the world and everything in it, this Master of sky and land, doesn’t live in custom-made shrines or need the human race to run errands for him, as if he couldn’t take care of himself. He makes the creatures; the creatures don’t make him. Starting from scratch, he made the entire human race and made the earth hospitable, with plenty of time and space for living so we could seek after God, and not just grope around in the dark but actually find him. He doesn’t play hide-and-seek with us. He’s not remote; he’s near. We live and move in him, can’t get away from him! Acts 17:24-28 (MSG)

Have a blessed day!

How To Wear Mixed Prints

Many of you have asked about how to wear mixed prints. What is the rule? How do you know what looks good together?

So here are some tips if you’re wanting to wear mixed prints.

1.  Mix black and white prints. This is an easy one. Two different prints, both black and white.

Here I’m mixing black and white prints.

2. Consider leopard print a neutral. I know that sounds weird but I think you can mix leopard print with a lot of different prints.

3. Mix floral and stripes or polka dot and stripes.

Beauty for the Heart~~Over the last several weeks, we’ve had a small group bible study in our home on Sunday nights. We read the book, Not a Fan by Kyle Idleman. It’s really good!

The book ended with this verse, For the eyes of the LORD range throughout the earth to strengthen those whose hearts are fully committed to him. 2 Chronicles 16:9

Let’s be fully committed to Him!

Have a blessed day!

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!
