Fashion Over 40 | Daily Mom Style 06.04.14


For some reason, almost everything I’ve worn this week has been orange or coral. Isn’t it weird how you get into a certain color?

I wore this orange dress one day just for the heck of it. I don’t know why I don’t wear casual dresses more often. It was an impulse purchase at the outlets last summer, I don’t remember which store.


I wore this Stella & Dot necklace (the Monterey is similar, and also ON SALE) and a white/gold bangle.


The shoes are my new Fit Flops. These were recommended by my physical therapist for stylish sandals that are supportive enough for my finicky feet, and I LOVE THEM. They have SUCH a comfortable footbed — not as much of an arch as some of my other comfort sandals. My only complaint is that they could be tighter over top of my foot so I have to walk carefully… lol, the things we do in the name of fashion!


This was the day I went to the doctor and got rid of my medical boot. YAY!


Note my NEW Stella & Dot Avalon Tote! LOVE THIS TOTE.


I wore the Sunwashed Tee from LOFT in Bright Peach Blossom (NOW ON SALE!!), my favorite cuffed denim shorts (similar) and my Dansko Sophie sandals. The necklace is from Ten Thousand Villages, and the snakeskin belt is from Francesca’s.


I wore this outfit around the house and to hang out with friends on a Friday evening.


The jeans are from Stitch Fix, and so is the necklace. (For those who are interested, the jeans are Mavi {similar} and the necklace is Gorjana.

I am LOVING my Fix this month! I returned two items and kept three. You only pay for what you keep. The sandals are my Romy wedges. I only put them on for the picture, as they don’t have enough cushion for my feet right now. But they are so cute, and perfect with these skinny jeans, I couldn’t resist throwing them on for this post. Rest assured, if you do NOT have foot problems, they are actually very comfortable. I bought them thinking they would be practical, lol. My feet have just gone from bad to worse. (More details in my Coffee Talk post from the weekend, if you’re following the saga.)


The crochet top and white tank were provided by CAbi during my the CAbi BiG Event promotion. The bracelet is from Target. I thought the pop of green was nice with this outfit.


This blouse and necklace were also from my latest Stitch Fix. I absolutely adore this color. It’s not a style I would typically go for, and I asked my husband about ten times if he thought it was really cute. He swore to me that it’s flattering, so here I am!


The green bag is the perfect contrast — my favorite color combo is spring green and coral! I also wore my Stella & Dot Luna Wrap Bracelet. I wanted something that wasn’t too bulky but that had some weight to it. If you haven’t seen it yet, you might like my video on how to mix metals.


And here’s the long shot. White jeans and (YAY!) wedge sandals! These are old, but such a standby. When you find comfortable, versatile wedges, you keep them forever.


I wore this next outfit to work out and then I didn’t take it off for the rest of the day. I’m lazy like that. Both the gray “Oula Tank” and the black”Rio Run Capri” are press samples from Fabletics. I really love the quality and style of their clothing, and I just didn’t see a need to change. You heard it here first: cute athletic wear is the new black.
