My weekly Fashion Over 40: Daily Mom Style posts are BAAACK! I enjoyed my 28 Days of Winter Outfits challenge. I came up with some new outfits by shopping my closet, and I needed the push to get up and put myself together every day.
Now that I’m back in the habit, I’m going back to my weekly posts because I fear the daily outfits overwhelmed the blog just a little. Plus, that was a lot of work!
On Sunday, I wore this outfit to church. I’ve worn this top with the black leggings before, but this is the first time I tried the outfit with my brown riding boots as opposed to the black. I like how it adds some interest to the outfit, but I think I might like the proportions better with the black boots since the top is so long. But really, it works either way.
For jewelry, I tried to do something different and wear a chunky gold necklace on the front, but I ended up taking it off and sticking with this small delicate one from Stitch Fix that fills the neckline perfectly. I’m a plain jane at heart. I also wore my favorite Stella & Dot Goddess Teardrop Earrings. I like how they’re delicate but have just enough weight to them to show up under my hair.
The Adelina Cuff is another Stella & Dot piece. Sort of like the earrings, it has a delicate look about it, but it’s weighty enough to stand on its own without the need to layer anything else with it.

On Sunday night, I changed into this for my husband’s birthday party, but instead of the chunky red necklace, I kept on the gold one seen above with the blue tunic. I really liked how it looked with the red top. I didn’t think it would be enough, but filled in the neckline perfectly. I didn’t get a new picture, but this gives you the general idea.
I was a lazy bum on Monday. With PT in the middle of the day, I just wore my pink tunic and those Athleta Metro pants. I didn’t see any need to photograph that again. Yesterday wasn’t much better, but I did manage to put on leggings and a tunic after my workout session in the morning.
I decided to go for grey leggings for a change. I put on a lavender tank under this black sweatshirt/tunic number that I picked up at Nordstrom last year at about this time. My cozy sweater UGGs were really the only footwear option for this cozy, casual outfit — perfect for a snow day, sitting at home, noshing on popcorn and watching Gilmore Girls.
I have already posted the rest of this week’s outfits, but if you’d like a recap, here you go!
My favorite outfit from this week is the graphic t-shirt with my camo skinnies and black moto jacket. I really wish I could have rocked the look with a pair of pointy-toe pumps, but I had to settle for flats instead. Yes, I posted this already, but it was over the weekend, and I love these pictures so much I wanted to do a little reprise. There are more pictures over on the original post.
