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.

My earrings I purchased from ViBella. This company sells jewelry and has an amazing ministry helping women. You can read more about it here.

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!

What I Wore-September 2014

Well ladies, September is almost behind us and I can’t believe how quickly it went! The next couple of months are going to be pretty busy around here.

Tomorrow starts my 31 days of fall fashion. I’m super excited but probably about mid way, I’ll wonder what I was thinking when I said I would do it! Ha!

Then there’s November, don’t forget I have a fun surprise coming in November. I think ya’ll are going to love it!

Before we say goodbye to September, here’s a quick look back at What I Wore.

What I Wore September 2014

I love this floral blouse I received in one of my Stitch Fix boxes. I’m a little afraid of the floral trend because I feel it can make women over 40 look a little “old lady” if we’re not careful. But this floral blouse was doable!

I had no idea that so many of you would dislike the camouflage pants. Woa! But here’s the thing, I like them. I’ve already worn them again and I styled them with a black sleeveless tank. My husband also likes them on me, so you might see them again. Don’t hate me.

What I Wore-September 2014

I purchased this dress from Loft and I thought I could wear it well into fall with boots and a black blazer or denim jacket.

I mixed and matched prints here. Some of you liked it and some of you didn’t. I think it’s a fun look! I purchased my leopard print flats from Zappo’s.

I brought out the ankle boots and kept this outfit simple with a white t-shirt and leopard print scarf.

On a cooler day adding my military jacket will be perfect. I also talked about How To Style A Military Jacket.

I purchased this blouse and jeans from LOFT. Someone emailed me and said they had purchased the jeans and loved them. Yay!

I recently got these burgundy cords in my Stitch Fix box and I love them! They’re Kut From the Kloth and you can find them here. My loafers I purchased at Old Navy.

There you go, that’s what I wore in September! Are you ready for October?

Beauty For the Heart~~I read this scripture yesterday and I couldn’t get it out of my mind. It’s Psalm 34:5, Those who look to him are radiant, and their faces shall never be ashamed.” 

Wow! This is what I’m striving for. I want to look radiant not because of what I’m wearing but because of who I’m looking to. Jesus can make us shine!

Have a blessed day!

Mixing Prints-Fashion For Women Over 40

Happy Hump day friends! One of the things I’ve noticed lately is mixing animal print with polka dots. I think it’s a great way for women over 40 to add a trendy touch to an outfit.

Here’s a picture from J’s Everyday Fashion blog. She’s wearing a polka dot blouse with a leopard print belt. (Obviously, she’s not over 40.)

I decided to pull out my Kendrick Polka Dot blouse and add my leopard print shoes. It’s a fun look.

I love my Stella & Dot initial necklace and I’ve worn it a lot this summer. They’re fall jewelry that’s out is gorgeous!

Beauty For the Heart~~“I have learned that in every circumstance that comes my way, I can choose to respond in one of two ways: I can whine or I can worship! And I can’t worship without giving thanks. It just isn’t possible. When we choose the pathway of worship and giving thanks, especially in the midst of difficult circumstances, there is a fragrance, a radiance, that issues forth out of our lives to bless the Lord and others.” -Nancy Leigh DeMoss

Have a blessed day!

Dog Days Of Summer

It’s been a fun month, but I’m ready to start adding some fall clothes to my wardrobe!

Some of you have asked if I’m letting my hair grow out and the answer is, yes. I’m going to keep the same style but try to let it grow a little longer. We’ll see how it goes!

I’m tired of all my summer clothes, what about you? 

Beauty For the Heart~~I don’t know what’s going on in your life right now but this verse is a good reminder to look to Him. Good or bad, seek Him!

Look to the Lord and his strength; seek his face always. Psalm 105:4

Have a blessed day!

Take An Outfit From Summer To Fall

I know it’s still summer but usually about this time of the year, I start transitioning some of my outfits to a more fall look. There’s nothing fancy about this outfit but it’s something I wear when I’m running errands. Here’s how I take an outfit from summer to fall.

Take An Outfit From Summer To Fall I’ve had this navy blue top from Old Navy for several years and you probably have something like it in your closet. As fall nears, instead of wearing it with white pants, I like to wear these green pants I recently purchased from The Limited.

Take An Outfit From Summer To Fall I obviously have no problem carrying a big handbag! I usually have my ipad in my purse so it’s nice to have something this size.

When do you start transitioning your outfits to fall? 

Beauty For the Heart~~My heart is so heavy this morning for the family that lost their journalist son to a beheading by ISIS. Can you even imagine if that were your child?? Today would you join me in praying for this family and all those that are suffering in Iraq.

Hear my prayer, Lord, listen to my cry for help; do not be deaf to my weeping. I dwell with you as a foreigner, a stranger, as all my ancestors were. Psalm 39:12

Have a blessed day!

Difficult Seasons-Take Another Step

It seems like each week I come to this place and ask why? I know life is a journey and there are times of joy but there are also times of sorrow.

Just this week, a friend found out that her 2 year old daughter has a malignant brain tumor. They operated and removed 95% of the tumor. They will have to do chemo and radiation to get rid of the 5% that was left. My heart aches for this family.

I sometimes wonder how we handle the difficult seasons but I’m reminded of this quote by Oswald Chambers….

Take Another Step

We can’t give up. We have to have faith that God is in control. Do the next thing!

When my daughter found out about this tragedy, she texted me, “Why is life so hard?” My answer was simply, “Because this is not our home. We are here to shine light in a dark world and we never know how long we have.”

We have no guarantees of tomorrow but we have today, so let’s shine His light!

The song, Take Another Step by Steven Curtis Chapman kept coming to my mind.

Basically, the song is saying one minute everything can seem perfect and the next minute there’s tragedy. What do we do? Take another step, and then another, and then another……

 

Whether you turn to the right or to the left, your ears will hear a voice behind you, saying, “This is the way; walk in it.” Isaiah 30:21

I have a hard time posting fashion pictures on Sundays but since I committed to 31 days of summer fashion I’m going to do it. You know I wasn’t going to get through 31 days of summer fashion without wearing my chambray shirt.
