Top Ten in April

Greetings, friends! We’ve almost made it through another week!

With this house buying/selling process, I’m barely coherent — I usually don’t even know what day it is. Our For Sale sign went in the yard yesterday, and suddenly this all feels very real. I think everyone in our household has gone through a bit of a grieving process this week as we realize the magnitude of what is happening. It hits each of us at different times, and when I see it on my kids’ faces, it makes me sad, but I’m confident that in the end we’ll all be very happy with the outcome.

Anyway, back to fashion topics!

Before we get started, Nordstrom is running another Triple Points Event!

Now through May 6, earn 3X the points in stores or online at Nordstrom, Nordstrom Rack and HauteLook. Just add your Rewards number at checkout—or simply pay with a Nordstrom credit or debit card—and enjoy points in the fast lane. 

I’ve updated my Nordstrom Favorites page in my SHOP in case you’re looking for recommendations.

So today I have my top 10 blog posts and top 10 products from April.

How to Wear White Converse and other popular posts from April 2018 | Fashion for Women Over 40

#1. 15 Ways to Wear Converse //  I’m not surprised this was the most popular post last month! I got a ton of great feedback on it, and everyone always seems to like the posts where I roundup a bunch of different ways to wear one wardrobe piece. I’m going to try to do at least one a month, and I’m open to your topic suggestions!


Do you ever wonder what JLS readers are buying??? Based on clicks, these were the 10 most popular products across my blog and social channels during the month of April.

Loft Slit Cuff Sweater

#10. Loft Slit Cuff Sweater // This sweater is on sale for just $20 today!!! It also comes in black, red, and grey. If it’s already getting hot where you are, think about putting it away for next fall. It’s a nice quality, soft and stretchy. It’s true to size for Loft, I wear the small.


#9. Roll Tab-Sleeve Soft Jacket // I was so sad this jacket sold out before I was able to post it. As of the time of this posting, it is available in a size 12 online. If you want one, keep an eye on it because they restock random sizes as they get returns. You can also call your local store to see if they have any.

T3 compact folding hairdryer

#8. T3 Micro Featherweight Compact Hair Dryer // A lot of you snapped this up when it went on sale last month. This is my travel dryer, and I love it because it folds up so neatly, but there’s no reason why you can’t buy one to use at home on the daily. It’s less expensive than its full-size counterpart and almost as powerful.

Express Slim Fit Portofino Shirt

#7. Portofino Shirt // These shirts are great with a skirt or pants for the office, or wear them with jeans for a classy date night look. I recommend sizing up; I wear a medium.

Tory Burch Minnie Flats

#6. Tory Burch Minnie Flats // These popular travel flats went on sale, and a lot of you took the opportunity to snap them up. They are by far my favorite ballet flats… pricey but so worth it, especially when you can get them on sale.

J.Crew Supersoft Supima Tee in Stripes

#5. Supersoft Supima Stripe Tee // This tee is amazingly soft and flattering, and it’s on sale today! I love the raw edge neck, the 23″ length, and the style of the sleeves. Wear it alone or layer it under a jacket or cardigan on cool summer nights. For size reference, I have the medium. I recommend sizing up if in between.

#4. Packable Raffia Tote // This tote folds, roles, or lays out flat making it perfect for packing! I purchased it for my Florida trip, but I’ll be using it all summer at the pool and the beach. It has a bit of metallic thread running through it that makes it just a little fancy. 

#3. Hanky Pankies // When I mentioned that these are pretty much the only underwear I wear, I got a lot of questions about them. They do go on sale, and that’s when I usually stock up, but right now Nordstrom is having Triple Points, and that’s the next best thing to a sale!

#2. Khloe Espadrille Flats // I’ve been enjoying my leather espadrilles so much this spring, and these are excellent dupes. You can’t go wrong with Sam Edelman.

#1. Clean White Sweatshirt // I’m actually a little surprised this sweatshirt was the most popular item this month because it’s pretty spendy for a sweatshirt, but I don’t mind investing in a couple of nice casual pieces when they’re this comfortable and this versatile. I hope some of you snagged it when it was on sale!
