Fashion over 40 | Daily Mom Style 09.18.13


What a week, y’all! It’s been a whirlwind, but I’ve managed to capture a few outfit photos to share with you. It’s fall and that means I’m all about skinny jeans and ballet flats.

I wore this the day I posted the how to style camo post. It seemed appropriate. I decided to try the brown shoes with the brown belt. I like it. Simple but the pants make it fun. The necklace was a gift from my dear friend Lisa at Studio Jewel.

These are my new moto-inspired jeans and this elbow-patch pullover sweater is from Banana Republic. I love the color combination.


And the fun patches on the elbows. By the way, Banana Republic is running a great sale — 35% off TODAY ONLY with code BRSHOP35. I only order from them when they run their 35-40% off sales. Never pay full price!!


I wore ballet flats and carried this croc handbag — this is my new go-to fall handbag. I mentioned a while back I was looking for a structured tote. I snagged this Croco Lexington Tote when Macy’s was running a flash sale last month. It was my splurge of the season. Well, that and these moto jeans. I have a feeling you will be seeing both A LOT.

The shoes are old, old, old — from Nine West.

I put this on for a casual day working and running errands (which, this week, means visiting a car dealership. I think I visited five. Phew! But I found my car and my price! WOO!)

The 3/4-sleeve tee is from the CAbi outlet store. The jeans are old as the hills. The sandals are the Orthaheel Julie Slingback Sandals. I will be sad to put them away for the winter. They are soooo comfy. The necklace was something I picked up at Target a few years ago.

I wore this outfit to have lunch with a friend. I felt like dressing up for the fun of it.


The denim jacket is an old CAbi purchase. The jeans are from a local shop – but they are the DL1961 brand, same as the gray moto jeans above. I love, love, love this brand. Yes, they are spendy, but I have bought all 4 pair of my DL1961 on sale and they wash and wear incredibly well. (Never put your jeans in the dryer!!)


This black and white polka dot blouse is from Banana Republic last spring, and the shoes are also older. They’re You By Crocs.

  1. You always look fabulous! Question: I’ve been stalking that sweater from Banana but reading the reviews today one lady said it is itchy. Did you think so?

  2. Oh that pink elbow patch top is ADORABLE!!

    It got down to fall like temperatures only once so far…and it was in August. I’m very impatiently waiting for the fall temps to get here and stay because I am more than ready to start layering and mixing my outfits! 🙂
