Fashion For Women Over 40

Good morning!! I hope you had a wonderful weekend. We had a busy weekend but it was super fun. I was able to spend time with family and that’s the best kind of weekend to me.

I snapped a few quick pictures of some Mother’s day fashion. Of course the sun was shining and I’m squinting, sorry about that!

I received this dress in one of my Stitch Fix boxes several months ago when it was still cold and I couldn’t even think about wearing it. But yesterday was warm so I pulled it out and wore it to church.

Mother’s Day Gift Ideas

It’s time to start thinking about Mother’s Day gift ideas! Although I no longer have my Mom with me, I picked these gifts out thinking of her and what she might like.

Mother's Day Gift Ideas
Of course, Mother’s day is the perfect time to give any Mom a gift. Do you have a daughter or daughter-in-law that’s a Mom? I’m sure they would love one of these gifts!

Dayspring has some wonderful christian gifts. My Mom would have loved that tea cup. She loved hot tea and the cup is unique with a wonderful reminder on it, live a grateful life.

Mother's Day Gift Ideas

1. Lisa Leonard – Love and Laurel Necklace// 2. Urban Soul – Plans – Charcoal Wall Art, Set of 3// 3. Daily Grace – Live a Grateful Life – Teacup & Saucer// 4. Sarah Young – Jesus Calling – Large Deluxe Edition (one of my favorites!)//  5. Urban Soul – Fruit of the Spirit – Chocolate Wall Art// 6. Amazing Grace – Gallery Wrapped Canvas Print

I’ve recently teamed up with Stella & Dot and I’m crazy over their jewelry. I’m at the stage of  life that I want to have some nice jewelry that doesn’t “turn” after a few months and jewelry can make an outfit!

Here are some things I think any Mom would love.

Mother's Day Gift Ideas

1. Elephant handbag// 2. Sanibel reversible pendant// 3. Jackie link bracelet// 4. Mercer zip wallet

 If you have a Mom or daughter that loves makeup and beauty products, Birchbox would make a fun gift. A 3 month subscription is $30, 6 month subscription is $60 and a 12 month subscription is $110.

Do you have any gift ideas for Mother’s day?

Beauty For the Heart~~I thought I’d share my Mom’s favorite verse. She shared this verse with me so many times. John 14:27, Peace I leave with you, My peace I give to you; not as the world gives do I give to you. Let not your heart be troubled, neither let it be afraid.

Have a blessed day!

Happy Mother’s Day!

I shared this picture and these words on my facebook page yesterday and I wanted to share it with you too.

Happy Mother's Day!

In honor of Mother’s Day, I have to say I would love to have one more hug from my Mom, one more time to hear her say “I love you”, one more time to wake up and call her first thing in the morning, one more time to hear her say, “Cyndi you’re a great Mom!”, one more time for her to remind me of God’s grace and how it covers all my past mistakes.

But I know more than anything Mom would want me to say to you, “Love Jesus with all your heart, your soul, and your mind.” She would say “Run to Him, don’t walk, because He’s our only hope!”

Happy Mother’s Day friends!!!

***If you’ve been reading my blog for very long, you know how much I love my Mom and how much I miss her. Today I’m praying for all of you that have lost your Mom’s. May you feel the peace and comfort that only Christ can give.

Mother’s Day Outfits

It’s hard to believe this weekend is Mother’s day. It’s still a little difficult for me since losing my Mom in 2009. I miss her so much! If you still have your Mom hug her extra tight, there’s nothing like a Mother’s love.

We do have an exciting weekend because my son is graduating from Law school this Saturday. I know my Mom would be so proud of him! Mom adored Cory and he adored her!

This picture was taken at Cory’s high school graduation in 2006. He was picked as the Salutatorian of his graduating class and Mom and Dad were thrilled. He went on to play college basketball at Asbury College, where he graduated in 2010.

Mother's Day Outfits

With all the celebrations, I’m trying to figure out what to wear. Do I wear a dress, pants, capri pants, etc.??

Here are some tips if you’re trying to decide what to wear for Mother’s Day:

1. If you’re going to wear something you already have but want to update your outfit add some cute accessories. I love to do this! I recently purchased this coral stud bracelet from J Crew (remember when I said studs were in style and you all said you couldn’t wear them?).  The thick gold bracelet is from JC Penney’s and the cross bracelet is from Francesca’s.

Mother's Day Outfits

2. Update an outfit you already have by updating your shoes. This can make all the difference and it’s an easy way for women our age to look trendy. Right now wedge heels are everywhere so adding them to your outfit will give it an updated look.

3. My rule of thumb is, “it’s better to be over dressed than under dressed”. Thankfully, women’s styles are dressier and more feminine right now and I’m glad. So if you’re not sure what to wear, go with something dressy and feminine and you’ll look great!

Here are some outfits (new and old) I’ve put together that would be perfect for Mother’s day.





How are you celebrating Mother’s Day? Do you know what you’re wearing?

Beauty For the Heart~~I shared this poem in 2011. My brother wrote it right before my Mom passed away so I thought in honor of Mom, I’d share it again.

There is None Better!

I hear people brag about their moms, but if they ever met mine they would know. There is none better.

You think you know a Christian that talks the talk and walks the walk? Well let me introduce you to my mom. There is none better.

I always thought the best way to describe a Christian is “Servant.” You should meet my mom. There is none better.

Do you know someone who is unselfish? Puts everyone above themselves? Would give you anything they had? I call her Wanda Faye, she’s my mom, and trust me, There is none better.

I’ve known her 37 years. I’ve seen her faithfulness. I’ve gotten up at 5 in the morning and found her reading her bible. I’ve watched her prepare to teach bible studies. This isn’t just a bias. I’m telling you! There is none better.

She’s fighting cancer now. She even does that selflessly and gracefully. I can’t tell you how many cards she has received. What does my mom do? She uses all the energy she has to try and write everyone back. Do I really need to do anymore convincing? There is none better.

If you’ve been fortunate enough to meet my mom you know what I mean. If she’s touched your hand, smiled that sweet smile, told you she loved you, told you she was praying for you, well consider yourself blessed…she meant every word. There is none better.

If the Lord does decide to take her home before we are ready. I can’t say I blame him. He knows what I do. There is none better. ~by Blake Long

Have a blessed day!

Mother’s Day Recap!

Good morning!

I hope your Mother’s Day was wonderful and you were able to spend some

time with your family.

I had a great Mother’s day even though the weather wasn’t the best.

It was cool and rainy. Yuck!

After church we went to the Beaumont Inn for lunch. It’s becoming a Mother’s day

tradition and I love it.

If you are ever in this area, you need to stop by and visit the Beaumont Inn.

It’s beautiful and historic!

Courtney and I love the food and the atmosphere. Of course we have to

have coffee with dessert.

Courtney got me this adorable wrapped canvas of Colt Allen for Mother’s day.

Best. gift. ever!

After lunch my Dad and I met my sister at Mom’s grave and we planted flowers (in the rain).

This is also becoming a tradition for us and although I miss my Mom, I enjoy visiting

her grave and planting flowers for her on Mother’s day.

My son was supposed to meet me for dinner, but on his way he got behind a wreck and

they shut the interstate down for twelve hours. I only got to talk to him on the phone.

I thought of so many of you, who have lost your Mom’s and I know how difficult

Mother’s day can be.

I pray in the midst of missing your Mom you were still able to celebrate.

I celebrated my Mom’s life and the legacy she has left me and I pray I can pass

that legacy down to my children and grandchildren.

Thanks for stopping by!

I’d love to hear from you. What did you do to celebrate Mother’s day?
