Happy Birthday to ME!!!!!

Fashion Over 40: Wearable Outfit Ideas for Women Over 40

Yes, today’s my birthday. I’m turning 27 again, and I’ve never felt better! Okay, fine, I’m turning 43, and you know what? I wouldn’t trade the aches and pains, the smile lines, or the wisdom and confidence I’ve gained from 43 years of living for all of the water in the fountain of youth. There’s something to be said for getting older and more comfortable in your own skin.

Last night we had a small family celebration with all of my favorite people, and tonight my husband and I have dinner plans before we go to the media preview of Nightscape, a new light and sound show at Longwood Gardens, so I’m really looking forward to that. Meanwhile, here’s what I wore this week. As I always say, I’m just a typical suburban mom trying to stay fabulous after 40 and sharing what I learn along the way. I hope you find some style inspiration here.

I ordered this green slouchy linen tee from LOFT, and I love it. The relaxed fit is easy to wear, and the rounded V-neckline is flattering without being too low-cut. I expect it to shrink up some when I wash it, and I think I’ll like it even better then. I also like the seaming detail in the back. I paired it with my black City Shorts from Ann Taylor, and I wore my black FitFlops. The chevron necklace is from Silpada. read more >>
