Good morning, and happy October!!! It’s hard to believe that Cyndi and I are wrapping up our 5th seasonal style challenge. Today I’m posting a recap of my 26 Days of Fall Fashion in case you missed any of my looks, and so they’re all in one place for easy reference. Here they are, in no particular order, 26 fall outfits for women over 40!
(Feel free to pin this image to your fashion board on Pinterest so you can find it easily. I also put it on my blog sidebar with a link to this post.)
So that was fun!! I really wanted to stretch myself this time and try some new things. It’s easy to revert back to my safety zone, which is skinny jeans and a cute top, but I’ll keep trying to expand my fashion horizons.
I always feel a little bit sad when one of these seasonal style challenges wraps up, but I have lots of ideas for posts, plus more fall outfits I want to style.
I have a couple of new dresses that arrived while I was gone, and one isn’t even a sheath. Shocker!!! I also want to do more with bootcut jeans and flares, and I have another blazer I want to feature if I can figure out what to wear with it.
I’ve almost given up on finding dress pants I like that aren’t jeans, but I’m determined to make it happen. I really need a classic pair of black or grey pants I can wear when jeans aren’t appropriate, but everything I try on looks frumpy. I need to make that a priority.
I’m working on a massive Instagram Roundup for next week, and I also want to share about my trip to South Carolina. Behind the scenes, I need to catch up on my Adore Your Wardrobe eCourse as well as my bookkeeping. Ugh. I hate bookkeeping.
Ooooh, unrelated to fashion, but if you’re on Instagram, I’m hosting a Starbucks giveaway with 7 other bloggers! It’s $100 Starbucks Gift Card for you and another $100 GC for the friend you tag! Super fun, and there are only 8 of us participating, so it’s not a ton of liking and following. ENTER HERE.
Well, that’s about all I’ve got today! I hope you have some fun plans for the weekend. It’s been dank and cold and rainy here for the past few days, so I’m crossing my fingers that it dries out soon so I can enjoy some pretty fall weather. Right now I just feel like hibernating.
Our high school is hosting our annual cavalcade of bands tonight, so we will definitely be attending that, rain or shine. (My son plays drums in the high school marching band.) Other than that, I don’t have a lot on my agenda for the weekend. It will be nice to have time to get caught up on work and laundry… such a glamorous life I lead! Ha!
Make sure to come back on Monday for a huge Instagram Roundup of all the looks I’ve been wearing “in real life” over the past month. Or better yet, sign up for my Daily Emails, and you’ll never miss a thing. You can also follow along on Instagram for my daily outfits and sneak peeks of what’s to come on the blog, and register with LIKEtoKNOW.it so you can shop my outfits first!
