What I Wore-Fashion for Women Over 40

Happy Hump Day! I’m sharing some fashion for women over 40 and my new obsession with Stella & Dot.

I blame my obsession on Shaeffer from Pinterest Told Me To. You’ve been to her blog, right? I can hardly keep up with all of her cute outfits!

I saw this picture of her neutral blazer and the gold necklace. At that moment, I felt like angels surrounded me singing the Hallelujah Chorus!

Why? Because that necklace was exactly what I had been looking for! It was pretty and unique and it can be worn with half of my wardrobe.

Soooooo, I copied her necklace. I guess I could call it, Shaeffer Told Me To. 🙂  Anyway, I’m giddy over it, it doesn’t take much does it?

I recently received this crew neck layered sweater from Stitch Fix and the gold necklace was just what it needed.

Do you remember a few weeks ago, I hosted a Matilda Jane party? This is the top and tank top I ordered. I love it!

I love when something is packaged pretty. This is how each piece of Matilda Jane clothing is packaged. Isn’t that adorable?

 So a couple of random things I’ll share with you~~

  • I am waaay overdo for a cut and color. I will be getting it done asap.
  • I took these pictures after I had my eyes dilated at my eye appointment. I couldn’t see well but I managed to get some pictures, blurry eyed and all.
  • I did find out my eyes are worse than they were last year. Woo hoo! I’m trying to wear contacts AGAIN, we’ll see!

Have you ever had your eyes dilated? It’s a weird feeling isn’t it?

He is unparalleled and He is unprecedented. He is undisputed and He is undefiled. He is unsurpassed and He is unshakeable. -Anne Graham Lotz

Have a blessed day!

  1. Cyndi!
    You are just too sweet and too cute! Thank you so much for linking to me! You are going to wear the heck out of that necklace!!!!!
    Sheaffer 🙂

  2. Love Stella & Dot! Just hosted a party with them and it was so much fun…their jewelry, scarves, and bags are reasonably priced and trendy chic…own the same gold necklace as you and just purchased a couple new ones for spring/summer. The Linden necklace looks great on your cute self! 🙂

  3. I think it’s so funny how we see ourselves so different than how others see us. You said you need to have your hair cut and colored and I thought it looked really cute.

  4. I am always excited to see what your wearing….I love your style. I have to tell you I just ordered my first stichfix !!! I can’t wait to see what I get. 🙂 I really feel like I need to start dressing like a 43 year old!! 🙂

    I have never had my eyes dialated, but I’ve heard it’s weird! 🙂

    Have a happy day!

  5. I recently purchased this necklace because Sheaffer told me too. I LOVE it! I wear it all the time!!! I too just signed up for Stitchfix. Can’t wait to get my first box!

  6. Yes I have had my eye’s dilated and it is weird,the last time I had it done it lasted all day!

    I have a beige light weight blazer that I have worn for ever,I can dress it up or down.I believe it should be a staple in your closet.

  7. Two cute outfits! I LOVE the first one-perfect from head to toe. I keep seeing the cropped-over-long silhouette, and that sweater is the perfect way to do it. You have such a good eye for combining outfits.

    I’ve been following Shaeffer for a while-she’s one of my favorites, too. 🙂

  8. Cynthia,
    I am so happy I’ve found your blog. You have been an inspiration to me. As a woman over 40 (almost 50), a newbie blogger, and a Christian you have been a light and inspiration to me. Thanks for being you!

  9. I know that necklace is going to be very versatile! i purchased one for the same purpose at F21 recently… I just placed an order for the Golden Tote and am trying it with the $49 one… The item I chose was a long boho skirt. It’s important for anyone looking to do this to try the first week of the month as several items were already sold out for the month!

  10. Cyndi,
    I have been eyeing that Kimberly necklace that Shaeffer wears forever. I love her outfits and always try to make it a game to find the same look for less (living on a teachers salary). I just found the same necklace last night on “groop deals” for $14.99 instead of $89 from Stella and Dot. Just FYI for your readers on a shopping budget. I totally am thinking about ordering myself that Matilda Jane shirt for myself for Mothers Day though. ; ) Love your blog!!

  11. I am way over 40 and I am very over weight but I love seeing you in all of the beautiful clothes.

    God Bless!

  12. Cyndi-
    So glad I found your blog! You look so beautiful in all of your outfits. I agree, I hate getting my eyes dilated – I can’t see for hours. I’m a brand new blogger writing about life in your 40’s, and I’m so glad to have found you. Have a great evening 🙂

  13. You always look great, Cyndi! I especially love the layered sweater from Stitch Fix. My eyes have changed so much in the last few years. Do you wear loupes while working? I’ve been wearing mine for 10 years and I feel like they’ve caused my eyesight to become weaker. Just wondering if you’ve experienced the same thing. Have a good week!

  14. Hey Jill, I’ve never worn loupes. I’ve wanted to try them, but now that you say they’ve hurt your eyes I may not. I don’t need any help with making my eyes worse. 🙂
    Thanks for stopping by!

  15. Love the blazer too….just got one a few weeks ago and love to wear it with my longer necklaces. So versatile. Since I am a Premier Designs distributor, I wear our jewelry, but love the look of the longer necklaces that are so popular right now. I also wear my blazer with a shorter necklace, gold-toned floral necklace that I have for a more sophisticated yet trendy look. 🙂

  16. Would love to know where to find the group deals to find that necklace. Love it too but not enough to spend that much $$$
