What I Wore-Spring Fashion 2014

Happy Wednesday! I think I can officially say it’s spring fashion time. The trees are blooming and the grass is finally green. Woo hoo!

I also wanted to say welcome to all my new readers. I’m so happy to have you join the Walking in Grace & Beauty community. We love fashion around here, but we believe true beauty begins on the inside!

Last year I traveled to Chicago with Verizon Wireless, and I purchased this white coat from Macy’s (INC brand) to take with me. It’s great to wear on cool spring days.

Easter Dresses For Women Over 40

With Easter being two weeks away, I thought I’d share some Easter dresses for women over 40. These would also be great for graduations and weddings.

A couple of reminders for women over 40~~don’t wear matchy, matchy, such as a matching skirt and jacket. Also, don’t try to match your shoes and your handbag.

To make you look more young and hip, add trendy jewelry. For instance with dress #4, I would add a coral bracelet or chandelier earrings with coral in them. Wear wedge heels or an open toe platform shoe (see picture 2). Small things can make a huge difference.

If you’re concerned about the length of your dress, you can buy slip extenders to add length. This is a DIY slip extender and you can find it here. I also found some on Etsy that are already made.

Easter Dresses For Women Over 40

Here are some dresses that I liked:

Easter Dresses For Women Over 40 Easter Dresses For Women Over 40 Easter Dresses For Women Over 40

1. Gemma Wrap Dress//2. Studio M Three-Quarter-Sleeve Striped Knit Dress//3. Evan Picone Cap-Sleeve Faux-Wrap Dress//4. MSK Short-Sleeve Ruched Surplice Dress – Plus//5. Studio 1® 3/4-Sleeve Squareneck Print Dress//6. Liz Claiborne Faux-Wrap Dress//7. Black Label by Evan-Picone Belted Eyelet Lace Fit-and-Flare Dress//8. Chaps Colorblock Sheath Dress//9. Apt. 9® Mixed-Media Sheath Dress – Women’s Plus

A good rule of thumb for dress or skirt length that’s always in style is letting the dress or skirt hit the spot on the back of your knee that curves in slightly. From the front it’s just above the knee. If you like a bit more length, have your skirts hit the middle of the knee.

Do you usually dress up on Easter sunday? Or do you like to keep it casual?

Beauty For the Heart~~One of the things my family would tell you about me, is I have a tendency to be a control freak. Okay, they would say I AM a control freak. I’m the oldest sibling. I’m the planner in the family, if we’re doing something as a family, they call me to find out when, where, etc.

My sister has even said when she plans her kid’s birthdays, she calls me first to find out the plan (okay she’s going overboard with that comment, but you get the point).

Over the last several years, God has been teaching me (and they’ve been hard lessons to learn) that I’m not in control. I had no control over losing my Mom to cancer. I had no control when it came to my daughter’s marriage ending in divorce.

I’m not in control but I’m so thankful I know the one that is in control. I’m learning that I have to trust God with my family. I would rather entrust my family to God than anyone else in the world.

Have you struggled with control issues?? Are you learning to let go and let God?

Have a blessed day!

What I Wore-Fashion For Women Over 40

Good morning from San Francisco! Traci and I made it safely and we’re excited about the next few days.

Because of my crazy week, I only snapped one picture. But I thought I would do a What I Wore during the month of March post. (This is the last Wednesday in March, can you believe it?)

So here’s some Fashion For Women Over 40:

It was cold again on Sunday so I pulled out my tights and boots. I recently purchased this dress from Zulilly.

Well the month of March was cold in Kentucky. Maybe April will be warmer, I’d love to start wearing sandals!

What do you love most about spring?

Beauty for the Heart~~When I think of spring, I also think about spring cleaning around my house. Windows need to be washed, closets need to be re-organized and so on.

But what about a spiritual spring cleaning? With the change of a season, it’s a good time to evaluate our heart. Are we holding any grudges? Are we bitter, or hurt?

Psalm 51:10 says, “Create in me a clean heart, O God; and renew a right spirit within me.” Let’s spring clean our hearts too!

Have a blessed day!

What I Wore-Fashion For Women Over 40

Welcome! I’m so glad you’ve stopped by! This is the day I share what I wore but some weeks I feel I need to apologize.

I spent the weekend with our youth group and didn’t have time to take pictures. I’m also trying to get ready for my trip to San Francisco. Crazy!

I also know many of you work at jobs where you can’t wear jeans so I’m sorry I’m in jeans again this week. I promise I’m going to do better! :-)

I love to try and mix patterns so I wore a polka dot blouse with a floral scarf.

Our weather has been cool so a coat is still a must. I recently received this jacket in my Stitch Fix box and I love it. It’s perfect for this time of the year.

Beauty For the Heart~~These are some verses from my bible study this week.

Jesus looked at them and said, “With man this is impossible, but not with God; all things are possible with God.”  Mark 10:27

Now faith is confidence in what we hope for and assurance about what we do not see. Hebrews 11:1

Have a blessed day!

Hi friends! Today is What I Wore-Fashion for Women Over 40. I’m absolutely giddy because I was able to get outside and take my pictures this week!

This porch swing has been covered in snow most of the winter. I love sitting out here (my sweet daddy made this swing and it was on my parents porch. Mom use to sit on it often. I.treasure.it!)

Here are some of the outfits I wore this week.

Saturday was a beautiful day but it was still a little cool. Wayne and I headed to Shaker Village to take a walk. They have several beautiful trails. Of course I wore something comfortable! I know, you’re dying to copy this outfit. :-)

It’s amazing what a little warmer weather and sunshine does for my mental state! Ha! Have you had any pretty weather lately? 

Beauty For the Heart~~Okay, winter isn’t gone, we have cold weather heading back tomorrow. But this verse reminds me that spring is coming!

Look! The winter is past. The rains are over and gone. Flowers are appearing on the earth. The season for singing has come. The cooing of doves is heard in our land. Song of Solomon 2:11-12

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!
