Fashion Over 40: Daily Mom Style 04.15.15

Welcome back to my weekly Fashion Over 40: Daily Mom Style post where I share what I wore this week. As I always say, I’m no fashionista. I’m just a mom trying to stay fabulous after 40 and sharing how I translate the current trends to work for a typical suburban mom. I hope you find some fashion inspiration here.

This week has been a bit of a bummer. The weather wasn’t feeling very spring-like, so I wasn’t feeling very motivated to get dressed in anything cute, but I tried.

I wore this first outfit two days in a row. Well, really, I just wore it on Friday evening, so I got up on Saturday and put it on again. Hey, just keeping it real.


I ordered the tunic sweater after seeing Lindsey feature a similar one from Forever 21. She always seems to find such cute stuff there, but I’ve never had much luck. This, however, I love. It is from their Contemporary collection, which I gather is geared a bit to more, ahem, mature shoppers?

I just wore it with blue jeans because I was feeling casual. Typically I would pair this with something that created a bit more contrast, like khaki-colored pants, but blue on blue works. I wore my Sperry Angelfish Boat Shoes and carried my brown Tory crossbody when I went to see my son’s band performance later in the day.

I added the orange bracelet for a pop of color. Pardon the wind-blown hair. Saturday was a sunny but blustery day. And that is my favorite coffee mug from Dayspring. I saw no need to put it down for my picture.


We had a couple of warmer days, but I didn’t have a reason to get dressed so I didn’t. I’m feeling pretty lazy this week. Yesterday it was chilly again, but I rallied to get together with some ladies from church. I wanted to break out a dress, but it was just too damp and cold so I resorted to another pair of pants.


The olive green cargos are from Stitch Fix, and the tank top is new. I thought the two colors were nice together. The jean jacket is for warmth, and I love denim with olive green.


I layered two necklaces — a short one to fill the neckline and a long pendant to draw the eye to the vertical line created by the open jacket. This is supposedly slimming, according to Stacy and Clinton.


I added the Renegade Bracelet, and my oh-so-comfy ballet flats from Cobb Hill.


I feel like this outfit looks more fall than spring, but I really like the color combination. It’s a keeper!


And that’s a wrap. Hopefully next week I can put together some more spring-like outfits. I keep thinking our weather is going to turn around. It has to eventually, right??
