What I Wore-My Style

White pants

Happy Hump Day! If you’re new around here, Wednesday’s are when I share outfits I’ve worn over the last week. There are lots of 20 something girls sharing what they’ve worn so I thought it would be fun to show what someone over 40 wears. You can be stylish after 40! :-)

You’ll remember last week, I shared this picture of the lovely Stitch Fix ladies styling me for the Haven Conference.

Stitch Fix Ladies

Well, these are the outfits I wore. We had a reception on Thursday night so I wore a colorblocked dress by 41Hawthorn. I loved it and it was perfect for the reception!

This picture was taken by the photographer that recently took some pictures of me, but I did wear this to one of the events at Haven. I love the colors in this sleeveless top.

I apologize for the poor quality of this picture but I took this with my iphone, I wore this outfit on the first day of the conference.  This is a red silk blouse by Daniel Rainn. I paired it with my INC skinny jeans from Macy’s and a pair of leopard flats. I also have on a green and blue necklace from Stitch Fix.

How To Wear The Ankle Boot

How to wear the ankle boot

Last week on my Tie It Together Thursday picture, I showed this picture with black ankle boots. Krista, who sent the picture of the dress, had mentioned wearing ankle boots with it in the fall.

Several of you asked about the ankle boots. How do you wear them? Do you wear tights, what color, etc.

How To Wear The Ankle BootI’m not sure I would wear boots with this dress. If I did wear ankle boots, I would wear black tights but I would have to try this on to make sure it looked right.

I decided to do some researching and thinking about how to wear the ankle boot. It looks like they’ll be popular again this fall/winter season.

Let remind you, just because it’s in style doesn’t mean we have to wear it. Not everyone looks good in ankle boots.

Here are some things to consider:

~~Ankle boots cut your legs off at the ankle so if you have short legs, it will make them look shorter.

~~Try to wear an ankle boot that is close to your skin color to avoid them cutting off your legs.

~~Ankle boots accentuate the ankle, so if you have large ankles, you may not want to wear them with a dress.

~~Ankle boots look great with skinny jeans.

I found some pictures with ankle boots that I liked. These are great examples of how to wear the ankle boot.
