Fashion Over 40 #WhatIWore 12.03.14
Welcome back to my weekly Fashion Over 40 post where I share what I wore this week and link up with other fabulous fashion bloggers around the web! 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.
As many of you know, it’s been a rough week in Casa de Shane. I’m down and out again with my foot. My doctor could shed no light on the issue yesterday but ordered an MRI so he can see what’s going on. He’s as perplexed as the rest of us, it seems. And with the days being so short, I haven’t managed to get pictures of my outfits every day. The camera with the timer that I used to use when I was alone broke several months ago, and I haven’t ever replaced it. I miss my little Sony NEX. It did a great job when I needed it in a pinch.
So anyway, here’s a few of my outfits this week. I wore this last Wednesday. My kids had a blast in the snow, and I had a blast trying out my new Sorel snow boots that I received as part of a collaboration with Zappo’s. More on that to come!
This is what I wore on Thanksgiving Day. My new coated jeans and the embellished sweater from WHBM that I picked up last week and wore for our family pictures. I’d have loved to wear my new Naturalizer booties (as seen here), but instead I wore these sensible Sketchers. Maybe next year I’ll be back in cute shoes. . . one can hope!
Shop this look: Embellished Cowl Neck Sweater // DL1961 ‘Florence’ Instasculpt Skinny Jeans (Lourdes) // Sketchers Felicity // red bag (old) // Stella & Dot You Are My Sunshine necklace (old) // Stella & Dot bracelets: Inspiration Bangle, Pave Arrow Cuff & Pyramid Stud Cuff
A note about the jeans above. I love them. I wasn’t sure I’d like the coated denim, but I do. For a jeans girl like me, they’re a great way to do a dressier, edgier look while still getting the same style and comfort that I do in my favorite jeans. These are currently on sale at DL1961. Although they don’t LOOK like the same color, they say they are. I got them at Nordstrom on sale so that is the link I used above, but they are no longer on sale at Nordstrom. So… shop at your own risk, lol.
Finally, I wore this outfit to go out to dinner with friends. You’ve seen this before and most of the components are old, although the snakeskin tote and the Florence jeans are still available. Oh, and the jewelry! I love those silver teardrop earrings from Stella & Dot, and I enjoy layering those 3 silver bangles for a fun casual look.

I also wore this one day this week . . . again, I’m stealing an old photo that you’ve seen before, but why reinvent the wheel, yes?
