Fashion Over 40 | Daily Mom Style 05.21.14


I don’t have a ton of outfits to show this week. Let’s face it, when your foot is encased in a large black medical boot, it’s not very fun to put new outfits together. Plus, I’m trying to lay low and stay off my foot as much as I can. That said, I had a few events I couldn’t resist attending this week so here’s what I wore. Shopping links are provided through my affiliate partners.

I wore this into Philly on Saturday to a super fun afternoon tea to celebrate the upcoming opening of the Kimmel Broadway Philadelphia’s THE WIZARD OF OZ. I can’t wait to attend the show on opening night, June 3rd. It’s only showing June 3-9 so if you’re local and want tickets, don’t wait around!!!

Here’s a photo of Becca and me with “Dorothy” — so cute.


I wore this next outfit twice this week — first to the mall with my mom on Wednesday, and then because I didn’t get a chance to take photos on Wednesday, I wore it again to church on Sunday. See how efficient I am? Ha!

green jeans

Ah yes, there’s the lovely boot in all its glory.

I’ve had this graphic tee for a few months, I picked it up at the Lucky Brand factory outlet store. I was surprised to discover it went perfectly with my green jeans. The denim jacket helped keep me warm on these cool spring days, and it also breaks up the pattern, which I like.

There are brushed gold studs on the tee-shirt so I went with brushed gold jewelry as well. The necklace is one I picked up at Francesca’s last winter, and the Jackie Link Bracelet is Stella & Dot. My trunk show ends on Friday, if you’ve been wanting to place an order!


Green jeans must be totally out of style right now because I can’t find a single pair to link you to. If you’re in the market for a pair, I suggest trying a pastel, such as mint or sea foam.

Finally, this was a casual hang-out-at-home outfit. Keeping it simple with a gray tee and cuffed denim bermuda shorts. Both are old, but I did jazz up the outfit with some Stella & Dot . . . surprise, surprise!

I love that these Sardinia Earrings are 3-in-1. You can wear them as studs, as medium chandeliers (the way I am wearing them) or as long chandeliers (there’s another piece that hooks onto the bottom.


The bracelet is fun too. It comes with extenders so it should fit any size wrist.


I love how fun accessories can take a simple outfit from drab to fab in seconds!
