Fashion Over 40-What I Wore

Fashion Over 40-What I Wore

31 Days of Fall Fashion & Beauty Tips

It’s Day 23 of our 31 Days of Fall Fashion & Beauty Tips! Today I’m sharing some fall fashion for women over 40 (mainly because I’m over 40!).

I had errands to run and the temperature was in the mid 50s, so I grabbed this sweater and wore it with my skinny jeans. It’s a little too much navy on navy for me and I think it would look better with a chambray shirt under it, to break up the navy’s.

I wore this to church on Sunday. I’m trying to mix patterns and this polka dot sweater and striped skirt worked perfect.

After church, I kept the sweater on and added some boot cut jeans. I love these jeans because they’re long and I can wear heels with them but I could use a little higher heel than what I have on. Yikes!

  1. Oh no! You can ask for jewelry and I think they have handbags. I hate that you haven’t liked it. I know it’s not for everyone.
    Have a great week!

    1. Your blog is the best I have ever seen. Your style is exactly what I have been looking for. Love your taste in stylish clothes that look classic and up to date. Love your haircut too. I just can’t believe your style is exactly what I wanted and needed to see. Thank you ever so much, oh and I love Beth Moore too.

      God bless

  2. Hey Jen,
    Thanks so much for stopping by my blog. I’ve never heard that rule about a sweater. The sweater I was wearing was thin so I could tuck it in. If it was bulky at all, I wouldn’t have tucked it in.

  3. I have to tell you this even thought it doesn’t relate to today’s post: after reading your post on trenchcoats, I was thrilled when someone in the church gave me a tan London Fog trenchcoat that had belonged to her aunt. It seems hardly worn, and I was very thankful to receive it. The zip-in lining makes it very warm, too. I wore it to school for the first time today, and my first-graders all exclaimed at my new coat. One child said, “Oh, Mrs. Dennis, you have a spy coat!”. They all agreed, so I told them I WAS a spy, always on the lookout for good children! :-). When I put on my sunglasses, they declared that I truly looked like a spy. They had a lot of fun with that, and I did, too. We can’t be serious ALL day, after all. :-).

  4. I love your outfits!

    I have tried Stitchfix 3 times now, with no success. I may not be specific enough on my profile, I don’t know. I’m reluctant to try it again. I’m probably just too picky 🙂

  5. Hi Cyndi.

    I love all of the looks! The navy on navy is great, and the cardigan is lovely! I absolutely love your black and white pattern mixing. Super cute and super chic. Thanks for all you do for us.

    Have a great evening.


  6. Hi Cyndi and all,
    First, I have to say, you always look top-notch! I get so much inspiration from your blog, and am so happy, like so many others to have stumbled across it. So I’m wondering if you can help me with a style question. I noticed that it looked like your sweater was tucked into your skirt and your jeans. I was taught that a knit and/or sweater was never, ever tucked in. I’m wondering what you and others know about this.

  7. You look totally cute in every outfit, even the first one. It does give you a long, lean line, but I could see how a Chambray blouse or eve a scarf could lighten things up. You have DEFINITELY lost something somewhere, I don’t know if it’s inches or pounds, but your new regime is paying off. I hope it’s given you some renewed energy as well.
    p.s. let’s all remember there was just 1 not so nice comment yesterday. That’s the first I ever recall reading. Clearly, you blog unites rather than divides.

  8. I love that sweater in the first picture, Cyndi! And thx for sharing that vs… I need to remember it daily! Love & blessings!

  9. Krista thank you so much. I hope you come here and feel encouraged!! I do feel it’s a ministry for me and I love being able to meet women online that I would never have met otherwise.
    Blessings friend,

  10. I like the Navy on Navy, but could see the chambray shirt as another option. I adore the pattern mixing. You spread goodwill and building women up by caring for themselves. Helping women to stand taller and with more confidence is a worthy ministry.

  11. Hi Cyndi! You look adorable as always. I love the navy on navy. I think It gives a nice long line above your boots! I wanted to let you know some things, in light of some comments you received yesterday. I found your blog nearly a year ago. What a blessing you are to me. I don’t want to sound creepy or anything but reading your blog, makes me feel like I get a little friendly Christian girl time every day. I read your story and can relate to so much. I too am divorced and remarried to a wonderful Christian man. When we got married my children and I moved several hours to our new home. With my focus being on blending our new family and creating bonds and relationships in side our home, I haven’t been able to make friends here as quickly or easily as I have in the past. You have filled some of that void! In my mind your blog is a sort of ministry and I thank you for it, my friend and sister:) Krista
