Fashion Over 40-What I Wore

Its Day 2 of 31 Days of Fall Fashion & Beauty Tips! Today I’m sharing some fall inspired outfits I wore this past week.

31 Days of Fall Fashion & Beauty Tips

One of the things I have wanted to incorporate into my fall wardrobe is houndstooth (isn’t that a weird name?). I love the classic black and white pattern.

I absolutely love a wrap dress! I was thrilled to get this one in my Stitch Fix box. The colors are fabulous and the material is perfect for this time of the year.

Wrap Dress

I added black heels from Kohl’s and some gold jewelry.

Have you added any houndstooth to your fall wardrobe? Do you like the pattern?

  1. Cool…houndstooth, huh? I have a scarf in a pattern like that (and also a skirt) and I was just going through all my scarves and was going to throw it out…..well, not now. I guess it was one of those items that has hung in my closet for a long time without being used and just got tired of seeing it there. But now I think I will pair it up and wear it soon!! Thank you 🙂

  2. Love the B & W !! One of my favorite to wear year round! You are very stunning in your jeans and B&W !!
    I love your little black shoes…are they flats? I love my black Sketchers, flats with my jeans in the Autumn…a change from sandals and flip-flops. LOL I have also worn some boot shoes already here in Jackson, KY !!!

  3. I found your site with Google and love it! I’m trying to find the right balance with fashion for over 40 and have been reading your site all afternoon! Thanks! I went ahead and signed up for a Stitch Fit box! What style options did you choose? I wasn’t sure for myself (and did a search for each at Pinterest!) but chose “casual chic” and said I sometimes like classic and preppy. We’ll see!

  4. Roll Tide! LOL! That is exactly what I thought when the picture hit my screen. We are Bama fans, but I would love the classic pattern anyway.

  5. Hmmm. They send different brands so that’s hard to say but I think they run true to size. I generally wear a medium in a top and most of them always fit.
    Hope that helps!

  6. I’m cracking up, I forgot that houndstooth means you’re cheering for Alabama. Being a KY Wildcat we bleed blue!! 🙂
    Thanks for stopping by!

  7. i got that scarf just recently and I saw the shoes and thought that they were really cute! Now I know they are cute!! May have to head back to Target and get a pair. Thanks for sharing your cute outfits!

  8. Your outfits are so cute, Cyndi! Would you say that clothing from Stitch Fix tends to run true to size, a little larger, or a little smaller? I know this may occasionally may vary from piece to piece, because of the way a shirt might be cut, etc. But over all, how do things fit?


  9. Love the houndstooth outfit. I have a similar scarf but I need to spend some time learning some different ways to tie scarves. I always think of that when I’m getting ready at the last minute with no time to watch a video, etc. I have one or more videos pinned, though! I also have some houndstooth shoes but mine are gray and black. They are quite versatile. Love them!

    Love this post!

  10. Love both those outfits. I have houndstooth Toms wedges & I love them. The pattern is so versatile. You could wear that scarf with any color shirt also.

    I just got my first Stitch Fix box last month. Ended up only keeping 1 shirt but loved most of what they sent me. I will probably do it 2 or 3 times a year, just to give my wardrobe a boost but it’s a little pricey for this Target girl!

  11. Love that houndstooth scarf! I’m a Bama fan and wear houndstooth whenever I can. Just bought a great houndstooth tank top from Kohl’s. Wear it a lot. Picked up some houndstooth fabric to make some infinity scarves for family members. I think the wrap dress is beautiful on you. Wrap dress is really a classic and looks good on most women. Can’t go wrong with it. Thanks for your inspiring blog!

  12. I love adding scarves to a simple outfit, they add so much. However, in the state of Alabama, one can only wear houndstooth if you cheer for the University of Alabama…in our house full of Auburn Tigers, this would not go over well…haha!
    I love the wrap dresses and those little flats from Target are on my next shopping list! I love seeing how you pull everything together and help keep us looking young and fashionable in our 40’s. Looking forward to the 31 days of Fashion tips! 🙂 Have a great week!

  13. I love hump day as it’s so practical to see you in your outfits and you look wonderful. I like to get dressed, go out the door, and “forget” what I’m wearing so that I can BE a fragrance to others, though the Spirit must do this! I love both outfits, but particularly the dress is so lovely for church. Thank you, Cyndi!! You bless us all!

  14. I love, love, love that houndstooth scarf! I may have to add that to my fall/winter wardrobe! Thanks for sharing!

  15. Thank you sooo much for sharing those houndstooth shoes. I went online and bought them…I wear a size 11 so finding in the store is often really hard. It was only 97 cents to shipping so for $19.13 the shoes will arrive at my house next Tuesday….thanks! And as for trouser socks I try to go without but my shoes tend to rub and hurt my feet…..going back to trouser socks as I haven’t found a liner that doesn’t come off my feet:( Cyndi….that would be a great post….trouser socks, hose, or without with flats.

  16. I bought the houndstooth scarf last year at Target…..I have worn it with a black sweater but love it with the black top and white tank underneath of it for this time of year…..thanks so much for sharing!
