As a part of my ambassadorship with Maui Jim, I received several of their most popular women’s sunglasses styles to try out over the course of the year, and I brought my two favorites with me to Ocean City, NJ for our beach vacation last month. I’ve been wearing my Orchid frames a lot, but recently I’ve started incorporating these Coco Palms sunglasses with into my outfits and I’m obsessed.
Fashion Over 40
Fashion Over 40
I'm a 44-year-old wife and mom of three, sharing my life and style as I navigate the muddy water that is fashion over 40 in the 21st century. Most of us want to maintain our sense of style but don't have a lot of time to devote to it, so that's where I come in! I'm the girlfriend that keeps you in the know with the latest trends, the best sales, and wearable everyday outfits for the modern woman.
I like to call my style "casual chic" and I believe a simple outfit can be made fabulous by adding a few well-placed accessories. I'm not afraid to try a new trend here and there, but my goal is to be stylish, not trendy. I'm a sucker for a pair of designer jeans and a fabulous handbag, but I have no problem mixing high end fashion with more budget-friendly clothing. I try to feature products that fit a variety of budgets, and I hope that my outfit ideas inspire you to shop your closet or your favorite retailers.
I wanted to do another 5 favorites post this week, but I wasn’t sure where to go next. It seems a little too early to touch on sweaters, we’ve talked a lot about shoes and boots lately, and I don’t wear many blouses or pants… so let’s talk dresses. For this one, I’m going to speak to general styles of dresses rather than exact items, but I do have some pictures and links of samples in my closet.
Well hello Tuesday! I for one am happy Monday is over and done with. That rain was depressing. Unfortunately the clouds are still hovering, but it’s supposed to burn off this afternoon and be pretty and hopefully warmer. I want summer back! As much as we’ve been talking about fall fashion, I am not ready for the cool weather just yet. So we actually shot an outfit over the weekend. How about that!?! This pleat front top came in my last Trunk Club, and I am finally getting around to wearing it.
Last week I shared my Fall 2017 Wardrobe Essentials so today I thought we could talk more about boots since they are one of the best things about fall fashion. Can I get an amen? When deciding how many pairs of boots you need and what colors and styles you should to have in your closet, it’s important to do a quick lifestyle audit and think about what types of clothing you usually wear, what your weather is like, and of course your personal style aesthetic.
Greetings, friends! Can you believe the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale ends tomorrow? I’m not mad about it. I feel like it’s been going on FOR-EV-ER, but before it ends, I’ve got one more roundup of #NSale styles that are still in stock in case you want to take advantage of the sale prices before they go back up on Monday. Before we get going, I want to update you on my hunt for slide loafers yesterday.
Yesterday we talked about fall wardrobe essentials, and today I thought we could talk about some of the fun fall trends we may want to incorporate into our closets this year. While I’ll spend a little more on the basics that will see a lot of wear and tear and hopefully be in my closet for years to come, trendy pieces like the ones I’m sharing in today’s post are the ones I recommend trying to find at more budget-friendly prices.
One of my most popular blog posts is always my Fall Wardrobe Essentials so I’m posting an update for 2017. While there’s still a lot of summer left, it’s not too early to start planning our fall wardrobes. I like to shop early, before the fall styles are picked over and the popular items are gone. At the very least this is a good time to start making a list so when you’re shopping, you know what you need and you can snag it when you see a good deal. Here’s my list of 2017 Fall Wardrobe Essentials and some product suggestions at various price points.
