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.

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!

What I Wore-Fashion For Women Over 40

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.

I love mixing mint green and coral.

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

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?

Fashion Over 40-What I Wore

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!
