Fashion Over 40 Mom Style

I’ve been rather lazy this week with my photo-taking, and since I’m going to physical therapy 3X a week for my plantar fasciitis, I’ve been spending a lot of time in yoga pants. But here’s what I’ve got.

Day 1

I have no recollection of what day this was or what I did. I was probably just working and running errands, as usual. Obviously this was taken before our weather turned cold again. This pink and coral striped top is from LOFT this season. I like the gathering around the neck and arms — it adds interest without being fussy. I wore it with my favorite jean shorts and my pink sandals.

Day 2

I wore this outfit to church on Sunday. The black and white striped top is from White House Black Market. The white straight-leg jeans still need to be hemmed so I wore them with my highest heels — black wedge sandals with a wooden platform that I picked upon a clearance sale at Bloomies eons ago. I still LOVE those shoes. The red patent leather purse creates a fun splash of color, and I just wore simple silver jewelry.

Day 3

I wore this to attend my daughter’s orchestra concert at the elementary school. The coral sweater is old; I picked it up at the Banana Republic outlet several years ago. I wore it with my bootcut jeans and tobacco-colored wedge sandals. The necklace is Studio Jewel. Earrings and gold bracelet are Stella & Dot. The coral enamel bracelet is from Kohl’s!

Day 4

I wore this today around the house. I prefer this sweater with my white jeans, but they were dirty. The striped modal hoodie is from Gap. I bought it before the Mom 2.0 Summit, thinking it would be perfect with white jeans for a California conference, but I ended up not wearing it till I flew home. It’s really easy to wear and perfect for cooler spring days (like today!) I like it so much I’m tempted to get it in navy or gray while everything at the Gap is 30% off.

    I’m loving all the color but I have to say I’m partial to the black and white stripes with white jeans. So classic and easy to dress up or down.
