Summer Fashion For Women Over 40

black-top-green-shorts 10Happy Hump Day! I love sharing summer fashion that is simple and comfortable. We are finally getting some pretty weather and I plan on taking full advantage of it!

We talked Monday about this green color for fall but it’s also been popular this summer. I love these green shorts from LOFT. I have them in several different colors. They are 60% off with code: summer60.

The bucket bag was at Nordstrom’s, but it sold out. It was a part of their anniversary sale. I love these leopard print sandals. They work with so many outfits.

You all know I love a heel with my outfits. I found these wedges at Marshall’s. They remind me of the wedge heels that Carrie from A Lovely Little Wardrobe wears. I have been looking for a similar pair and I thought these worked.

I have already worn these wedges a lot. They go with all my short outfits. I found a similar pair here, it’s the same brand and I think they would look great with shorts.

Beauty For the Heart~~I often get emails from women who are struggling. Sometimes from a difficult marriage, or children who’ve made bad decisions. Many are finding it hard to see anything positive in life.

If you are seeing the glass half empty instead of half full (and most of us do at some time )then these tips might help change your perspective.

  • Rejoice and be glad.
  • Focus on the positive and count your blessings.
  • Get proper rest.
  • Do something for someone else.
  • Listen to upbeat, happy music.
  • Exercise.
  • Take a little break and do something for yourself.
  • Claim the promises of God.
  • Immerse yourself in the word of God

Have a blessed day!

  1. I have those same sandals!! if they are aerosole, love them they are very comfy!!! I hit the Loft outlet over the weekend found the shorts they were 14.99, found them to look big on me in the legs, I was so dissapointed! 🙁 was pressured for time with hubby and the kids to shop the tanks/shirts but they had a slew of them all on sale!!!! outfit looks great as usual!

  2. I prefer a heel with everything:D but I will wear flats to run errands:D
    I have lived in Texas all of my life and this is the first year that I have
    opted for simple, comfortable, jersey dresses over shorts…They are soooo
    much cooler–to me–so I definitely prefer a heel with them.

  3. Simple, cool and very pretty…that’s what summer is about!
    I love your suggestions for Beauty of the Heart!

    God Bless, MG

  4. Cute outfit and awesome tips for being more positive. I am taking a bible study classic led “The Power of a Women’s Words” by Sharon Jaynes. I am learning about the power of words that I speak over myself, my circumstances and to others. Great class and I am hoping the God really uses it to transform me.

    Blessings

  5. Thanks so much for your words of encouragement today. I needed them. I am a single mom of a 12 yr girl. Girls are so hard at this age . I feel helpless alot of the time. you look great as always
    h ave blessed day !!

  6. I love the top you are wearing! I clicked on the link you provided for a similar top, but that top was much too low in the neckline and had a breast pocket. Also, the back is more of a t-top…is there another top you could recommend that would be much more like the one you wore in today’s post? Thanks!

    1. I just bought a black tank that I love at the Loft on clearance fit great and not low, I couldn’t find it online but did a search for black tank and they have quite a few that might work. Most are on sale. Cyndi might have more recommendation but I thought since I just bought one there I would share. good luck with your search

  9. Love the casual simple outfit. I have green shorts and I just bought a similar black tank last week at the Loft. I see this outfit in my near future. Unfortunately I don’t have similar sandals. May have to go looking at clearance! I am not a heel person so no wedges with shorts for me but you look great! Thanks for the ideas!

  10. I just purchased the bucket bag from the Nordstrom sale as well….and although I kept it, I was somewhat disappointed that it did not have any pockets or dividers in it at all. Do you use a separate case to keep things organized in your purse.

    1. Hey Kim,
      I don’t use a separate divider. I know that bothers a lot of people but typically my purses don’t have dividers.
      So yes my stuff is not real organized. 🙂
      Blessings,
      Cyndi

  11. If anyone is in the Houston area, Cyndi’s wedges by Aerosoles are at Tjmaxx right now for 24.99$

  12. I like your outfit, as usual. I have to stick with flats or a very low wedge because I have really weak ankles. Thanks for the words you shared.

    God bless!

  13. great outfit. and did you do something different to your hair ? lighter color strip ??
    Were you in the part of the state that was so impacted by the flooding ??

  14. I love black and olive together. And your wedges are great! I really like how wedges lengthen your legs when you are wearing shorts. This is on my to -style list now! Susan

  15. I have been looking for an alternative to my treadmill and was hoping to find a buddy to join me at a gym, but no takers! LOL This challenge sounds great! Count me in!

  16. Thank you for the shout out, Cyndi! I totally love my wedges. One of my best purchases ever and they go with everything. They also made me a fan of Franco Sarto. Love yours too…very versatile and a superb purchase.

  17. Hi Cyndi,
    I love the khaki shorts paired with the black blouse! You look ready for late Summer! I prefer my flats with most of my outfits, only because I haven’t a pair of wedges just yet. I don’t want a pair that is too tall, but maybe a medium height around 3″. Loved the Beauty for the Heart, it was very encouraging. I have to praise the Lord that He has blessed me with a wonderful hubby(of 28 yrs) and 4 children . We have had our arguments and our ups and downs, but with the Lord guiding us each step, together we have had a wonderful life and looking forward to His return for us one day soon – Heaven awaits!!

  18. Hi Cyndi,

    Can you please tell me if your Loft short (at top) are the 4″ or 6″ (inseam) shorts? They look great!
