Welcome back to Fashion Over 40: Daily Mom Style. In case you missed it, this month I started a new series: 28 Days of Winter Outfits. The goal is to challenge me to put on a different outfit every day for a month, and hopefully by putting more effort into ME, I can beat the winter blahs that have been looming lately.
I debated if I should do Daily Mom Style this month in addition to the 28 Days of Outfits posts, but I know a lot of you like to see all the outfits in one convenient post so I decided to keep on keeping on. You can see more pictures and get more details on how I put each outfit together in my individual outfit posts.
The first few outfits are from before my 28 day challenge started. I got a new Stitch Fix so I have a few new pieces to show you!
I’m loving this first outfit. It is so simple, but it’s the details on the sweater that take it from an ordinary V-neck sweater to a stylish top that’s easy to throw on with jeans or pants or even a skirt. I wish I had a close up and more angles to show you. I was relying on my daughter to take pictures again, and she’s not the most patient photographer.
I wore it with my AG stilt legging jeans and grey suede UGGs. Then I layered two silver necklaces from Stella & Dot, and I wore my silver D Yurman cable bracelet, a Christmas gift from my husband. I love how the blue nail polish pulls out the blue turquoise stones from the bracelet and contrasts with the navy sweater.

Then the next day I wore a similar outfit: the same boots (what can I say, they’re comfy and easy to fit on over my brace) with light wash jeans and a sweater.
This time the sweater was pink, though. Again, it’s a simple outfit, but the details on the sweater take it up a notch. The silver necklace is old, old, old. It was a Christmas gift one year from my husband. I wanted something that fit in the neckline, and this worked perfectly.
These jeans are a different pair from the day before. They came in a Stitch Fix box last summer. I like how they have some distressing, and they’re more fitted than the other pair, so they fit better into my boots. I hate it when jeans bag around the knees when you pull boots on over them.
Sorry, no shopping links for this look! Everything is pretty old.
On Sunday, I wore this outfit to church and then later on to visit my inlaws and go out to lunch. You can see more details about how I put the outfit together here.
On Monday, I wore this casual outfit to work from home and run the kids to their various lessons and practices after school. More details here.
And then I wore this simple outfit yesterday to get my hair cut and do the mom taxi thing. Pretty much everything in this look is old, but it’s easy to duplicate: a tunic sweater over leggings with riding boots.
Just be sure you get a tunic sweater that is long enough to cover the, um, essentials. I like how this one isn’t too drapey, but it’s not terribly figure-hugging either. The dolman sleeves add interest and also keep it from being too snug.
As I always say, I’m not a fashionista. I just play one on the Internet. Ha! Seriously, I’m just a mom trying to stay fabulous after 40 and sharing how I translate the current trends to work for the average woman. I hope you find some fashion inspiration here.
