Fashion Over 40 | What I Wore 08.21.13
Today I’m heading up to NYC for a photo shoot with Target. I can’t wait to tell you all about it but right now it’s top secret. Meanwhile, my daily mom style has been rather lacking this week. Since I was traveling, I didn’t get photos every day, but here’s what I have.
We had a few cool days last week and I wore this Old Navy Embroidered Peasant Top with a very old pair of jeans and my new Orthaheel Julie Slingback Sandals. (I was tired of wearing the silver ones every day so I ordered these brown ones to switch off!)
Guess who got her hair cut and colored!? Yahoo!!! There’s nothing like a fresh cut and color to put a spring in my step! This is the outfit I wore the day we drove to Virginia. This coral top is an old favorite (another Old Navy purchase) and I wore it with my comfy cut-offs and the same Julie sandals. I wore a coordinating bracelet (from Kohl’s) and this casual silver necklace from Stella & Dot (no longer avail).
Wanna see a close-up of my sandals? I took this picture while I was trying to amuse myself on the long car ride. It came out pretty cool, if I do say so myself!
I wore my Gap Essential Short Sleeve U-Neck Tee with a pair of coral printed twill shorts from Old Navy to hang out at my mom’s house on Saturday. I didn’t get a good photo of the outfit, but I have this photo of me holding my new baby nephew. Now everyone say awwwwwww . . .
Finally, I wore this royal blue lace top (similar) with my DL1961 Angel Ankle Skinnies to church on Sunday. You can’t see them very well, but I accessorized with a pair of dangly Kendra Scott earrings in shades of blue and a blue enamel bangle. I used the opportunity to wear my white Tory sandals that were a birthday gift from my mom.
I like the contrast of the jade green bag against the royal blue top. I’m going to miss that bag when I pack it away for winter . . . sad panda.
That’s all I’ve got this week!
If you’re wondering what on EARTH I’m doing posting my daily outfits, I started joining up with Lindsey at The Pleated Poppy ages ago, sharing my outfits by way of keeping us stay-at-home/work-at-home mamas accountable for getting dressed every day. If you’ve ever been in a situation where you’re at home most of the time, you might know how easy it is to get into a rut of living in yoga pants or even pajamas.
Over the past year, I’ve begun to use this little exercise as a way of challenging myself to try new styles and trends and be more creative in my outfits. And I do hope that it is some inspiration to other at-home-mamas out there who are wondering how to wear current trends in a way that is age appropriate and fits your personal style.
