26 Days of Fall Fashion (Day 20)

striped top with leopard flatsWelcome to Day 20 of my 26 Days of Fall Fashion. You all know me well enough to know I love mixing stripes with leopard print so I had to add my leopard print flats to this top.

What I love about this top (it’s a little more expensive than I usually pay but I did have a coupon) is you can wear it so many ways. I could have added black pants, or I could wear it with boots. When the weather gets colder, I could add a black cardigan and a scarf.

Since we are having a mild September, I’m wearing my leopard flats and skinny jeans.

I love this structured bag, with the added tassel. It’s the perfect black handbag for fall and winter!

So many of you have asked about how I tie my scarves, I will do a video tutorial soon or at least get some pictures of how I tie them.

I always love suggestions of what you want to see on this blog for women over 40!

Beauty For the Heart~~My Mom was a writer and if she were here, she would be rockin the blog world. She wrote food articles for our local newspaper during one season of her life. She always included a Food For Thought.

Here is one of the poems she used: “View From the Hill”

Worry is like a distant hill, we glimpse against the sky, we wonder how we ever will get up a hill so high. Yet, when we reach the top, we see, the roadway left behind, is not as steep and sheer as we have pictured in our  mind.

Have a blessed day!

  1. Such a cute outfit Cyndi….just got these jeans yesterday! Can’t wait to wear soon. Are you wearing a size small in this top?

    Have a wonderful day ?

  2. Love love love!!!! The outfit- AND the quote from your Mother! Wisdom! And I sure needed that visual today! Thank you!!

    Have a beautiful day!

  3. Hi Cyndi! Love the outfit! Does the tassel come on the purse or did you add it? If you added it, where did you get it? Thanks! Crystal

    1. Yes the tassel comes with the purse. Sorry if that was confusing. If you didn’t like it, you could take it off.
      Hope that helps!!

  4. I love the stripes with the leopard! Do you change your handbags frequently? I loved the charcoal grey bag you showed a couple of days ago from QVC. I’ve seen you with a brown bag and of course a black one too. So I assume you change your bag to compliment your outfits ??? thx for your input 😉

  5. Love!!! Such a put together look!!!! Love the manicure too!!! Such a classic look. Such a great word of encouragement from you sweet mom as well!!

  6. this is a great casual friday outfit for work. it looks nice and put together even tho your wearing jeans. i get tired of wearing our company logo shirts on fridays with jean Boring.
    your mother was full of wisdom thanks for sharing it with us .


  7. Love everything you style. Especially the way u tie your scarfs. I’m a big scarf person. But most of all I love your heart for the Lord. Your testimony for the Lord in planting those seeds.

  8. Such a cute outfit!! I love stripes & leopard together! Thank you for sharing your Mom’s poem…perfect reminder! Have a blessed day! 🙂

  9. You look really cute and put together in this outfit. I am not a fan of big tops. I wear a size 10 but I think when I put those on I look twice as big. Like your mom’s saying. You are fortunate to have a mother who was such a positive influence in your life.

  10. Really like this top and its color. Will have to get it when it goes on sale at Macy’s. Perfect with the leopard shoes. Loved “View From the Hill”. Your mother was very wise and it definitely shows through your inspirations. Thank you for sharing!

  11. Love your moms View from the Hill. I needed to hear that today.
    I also mix stripes with leopard. 🙂 You look adorable as always in this outfit.

  12. Very cute outfit, am still getting used to these new swing style tops and only have a couple myself. I love them on everyone else, but when I put one on I worry if I look lumpy, or like I’m trying to hide something 🙂

    Sounds like something my Mom would have said <3

  13. I love this outfit! It’s obvious the top is well made because the stripes match at the seams. The poem is awesome! Thanks for sharing it! God bless’

  14. Hi Cyndi,
    I just found you yesterday and I am thrilled. I am a 49 year old homeschool mom trying not to LOOK like a 49 year old homeschool mom 🙂 Your style is right up my alley and I am so glad you are shopping for me! By chance, do you know of a style blog similar to yours for men???? My husband needs a serious wardrobe make over, but I don’t have time to shop for him either!
    I look forward to following your blog!

    1. Hi Gigi!
      Thank you so much for stopping by!! I don’t know of any men’s websites but I am planning on adding some mens fashion soon. My husband is going to be my model. 🙂
