Fashion Over 40: Daily Mom Style 03.04.15
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!
I will continue posting my daily outfits on Instagram, so if you’re one of the ones who don’t want to wait all week, be sure you follow me over there.
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.
