Fashion Over 40

Guess where I’m headed today! I’m flying across the country to the Mom 2.0 Summit in Laguna Beach, California, to stay at the Ritz Carlton for four glorious days! You can find me sitting on the floor of the hotel room and raiding the mini-bar . . . oh, no. Wait. No, that’s just what everyone else thinks we bloggers are all about when we go away.

Truly, from what I hear, Mom 2.0 is the crème de la crème of mom blogging conferences, and I’m ecstatic to finally be going! Supposedly the sessions are fantastic, the brands there are top notch, and the networking opportunities are great. Plus, it’s just a super smart group of women and I’m happy to be rubbing shoulders with them. And yes, there are parties. An Endless Summer Beach Party one night and a Kentucky Derby Party to round out the conference. I can’t wait to show you my outfits for both! Stay tuned . . . those will be in next week’s Daily Mom Style post!

For now, this is what I’ve been wearing this week.

Day 1

This was a casual day working from home. I wore my faded straight-leg jeans with an eggplant and silver striped top. It was chilly so I wore this open weave hooded gray cardi over top. The silver flats and the necklace both pull from the silver in the top.

Day 2

I wore this to go out to dinner with some of my Philly Social Media Moms. It was a mild spring evening so I wore white jeans with an orange tank. The eternity scarf and bracelet have some of the same orange and coral tones. I went ahead and threw on my yellow ballet flats. I am so loving the orange and yellow combo!! And the denim jacket kept me warm and gave the outfit a hip, casual vibe (I hope!!!)

Day 3

This was another casual day working from home. It was kind of chilly so I threw this navy cardi on over a butter yellow tee and my most casual jeans.

Just for fun and because I could, I wore my new favorite necklace — this Silver Boho Necklace from Studio Jewel. The blue in the necklace goes with the sweater, and my bronze flats pull from the bronze in the necklace.

Day 4

I wore my navy and white striped maxi dress from LOFT to my daughter’s violin recital on Saturday. My friend Kim gifted me the scarf after reading my last Daily Mom Style post where I said I thought this dress would look smashing with a yellow scarf! I love the pop of warmth against the cool tones of the dress and denim jacket.


Day 5

My parents were here visiting last weekend, and they offered to take us out for a nice brunch after church so I used the opportunity to dress up! I pulled out this Lauren by Ralph Lauren dress from the back of my closet. I modelled this dress in the fashion show at the Fashion Forward Conference last fall and was allowed to take it home! I’d only worn it once so I was thrilled that it’s finally warm enough to bring it out again. I accessorized with this silver circle necklace on copper chain, a gift from my friend Lisa at Studio Jewel.

It was a beautiful day for taking pictures outside!!


Day 5

This is what I wore on Monday for running errands and hanging out at home. The gray striped V-neck tee is from the Gap last year, and the jeans are the same ones I’ve been wearing all week. Can you tell it’s time to do laundry!?? I love gray and yellow together so I used this opportunity to wear my yellow ballet flats again, and the yellow bracelet I got at Target that is a nice way to pull the outfit together. The light jacket in gray was perfect for the drizzly day we were having.

Day 6

Finally, I wore this to go shopping for Mom 2.0 outfits! I figure you can’t go wrong with red, white and blue, right???

I went to the mall in search of a bathing suit coverup and came home with a new dress and earrings for the Kentucky Derby party as well as a new black-and-white striped top and a pink-and-white striped sweater — both of which I’m sure I will be debuting sometime this weekend. I might be addicted to stripes.
