It’s My Birthday And I’ll Cry If I Want To

Well, it is my birthday but I’m not going to cry! I’m thankful for another year of life! My Mom always said not to fret over getting older but to remember, life is a gift, use it wisely.

We celebrated my birthday on Friday night and this sweet fella helped me blow out the candles.


So….I did get some birthday money. Yay! And I’m going to buy a new pair of riding boots. My old ones are worn out! I know what you’re thinking, Why didn’t I buy a pair at the end of the winter season?? Good question. I don’t have a good answer. :-)

I’d like a cognac color and I don’t want to spend over $200 so Frye boots are out. I just can’t justify $400+ for a pair of boots.

Here are some cute ones I found online and I thought if you all had any that you had bought and liked you could share them with me.

 Have you found any riding boots that you like, where did you get them?

I’m so thankful I didn’t grow up with social media. My heart aches when I see people use social media in a negative way. Let’s remember to honor God with our words!

Have a blessed day!

What I Wore-My Style

Good morning! It’s What I Wore day here on the blog. In case you’re new around here, on Wednesdays I share fashion for women over 40. Many of you have said you struggle with knowing what to wear so I’m hoping these posts will help.

Yesterday I shared spring fashion trends and I wanted to make sure you all knew that those are the spring trends, but we aren’t going to be wearing the outfits the models were wearing on the runway. :-) Hopefully, when those trends come to our stores we’ll find some more conservative versions!

Now on to What I Wore! One of the things I’m seeing everywhere this winter is riding boots. I love boots and women of any age can wear them. I purchased these on Amazon and they’re comfortable and fit great. They zip up in the back so they’re easy to get on and off.  They were $44 with free shipping.

I’m also wearing a blouse from Old Navy. I like the style because it’s flattering for women our age. It’s a little longer in the back, and 3/4 length sleeve is flattering on our arms.

I had my hair colored and highlighted with red highlights. I went a little darker (I’m supposed to be going lighter, I know). I don’t mind experimenting with color because it can always be changed.

Have you purchased any riding boots? Where did you get yours?

Beauty For the Heart~~Here’s another way to put it: You’re here to be light, bringing out the God-colors in the world. God is not a secret to be kept. We’re going public with this, as public as a city on a hill. If I make you light-bearers, you don’t think I’m going to hide you under a bucket, do you? I’m putting you on a light stand. Now that I’ve put you there on a hilltop, on a light stand—shine! Keep open house; be generous with your lives. By opening up to others, you’ll prompt people to open up with God, this generous Father in heaven. Matthew 5:14-16 The Message

Let’s Shine today for Him!

Fashionable Christmas-Riding Boots

12 Day To A More Fashionable Christmas

Day 7 of 12 days to a more Fashionable Christmas and it’s Boots, Boots, & Boots! One thing that I’ve noticed is how many women are wearing riding boots. I see them everywhere and I don’t have a pair……yet!

I’m planning to snag a pair during all the after Christmas sales. But if you can’t wait or are wanting to buy a pair as a gift, these are some great looks.

Jessica Simpson Women’s JS-Beatricy Riding Boot, Aerosoles Women’s With Pride Knee-High Boot and Aerosoles With Pride Womens Tall Boots all shown in brown.

I think riding boots are my favorite fashionable trend for the season! I hope I can find a pair after the Christmas season.

Do you like this look? Do you have a pair of riding boots?

Thanks for stopping by! I appreciate your comments and look forward to reading them everyday!
