Fashion Over 40 | Daily Mom Style 07.31.13

I’m on vacation and I forgot to download the outfit photos I took last week before I left. D’oh! Blogger fail!!!

Meanwhile, I’ve been living in bathing suits and cut-offs and the occasional sweatshirt as mornings have been very chilly here in the Poconos! And naturally, the one time I actually did fix up (last night for dinner), I didn’t have time to get a picture.

So while this weekly feature is generally intended to inspire you to get dressed and look cute, this week it will only serve to reassure you that I have my good days and bad days just like everyone else. Ha!

Before we left for our week’s vacation in the Poconos, we took a day and went to the beach (why, yes, we ARE insane). It wasn’t the best day to take a day trip, as we found out the next day when it took us till 5PM to get packed and ready to leave for our vacation, but it was fun nonetheless.

I am in LOVE with this orange canvas tote – part of the FEED collection from Target. Here’s another view of it.

pool day

I’ve been carrying it to the pool and beach and lake and it’s so spacious, it holds everything, and the outside pocket is nice and deep so my phone doesn’t fall out. It also has a couple nice, deep pockets on the inside to keep my smaller purse items from getting lots in the depths. And it’s just super cute.

The first day of our vacation was chilly and rainy, so I was glad I brought along my cozy fleece sweatshirt and yoga pants. No, this is not a fashion statement, but for a sweatshirt and yoga pants, you have to admit it’s pretty cute, right??

chilly vacation day attire

I love a white sweatshirt in the summertime. This is the Storm Slub Hoodie from Under Armour, although I bought it on Amazon.com. It’s even cuter with jeans and jeans shorts.

I ordered it a few weeks ago along with the Under Armour Women’s Charged Cotton Undeniable Full Zip Hoody, which is the perfect lightweight sweatshirt for our cool summer mornings here in the mountains of Pennsylvania!

It hasn’t been cold all the time, though. We’ve had two lovely sunny afternoons. We spent the first at the swimming pool and the second at the lake. A friend took this picture of Paul and me yesterday on “the beach.” My girls keep saying, “This isn’t a beach!” Ha! They think a beach automatically comes with an ocean.

afternoon at the lake

I LOVE this Lucaya Halter Tankini from Athleta. It just so happens to be on sale right now, PLUS they are having a 20% off promotion till August 4th. If you are in need of swimwear or summer athletic attire, now’s the time to shop!!

Oh hey, look! We found ONE DECENT outfit picture on our camera. Woohoo!!!!!

I wore this out to dinner one night last week — my favorite white DL 1961 jeans with a black embellished top from LOFT and my silver Orthaheel Mia Slingback Sandals.

summer 2013 fashion trend: black and white

I carried my infamous green handbag and I wore these Kendra Scott earrings.

Hopefully that outfit redeems this post somewhat.

    LOVE your hair cut and color! I’m thinking you were at the Jersey Shore? We go to Brigantine and the Jersey Shore seems to be the only place you’ll see those Lifeguard Boats! Miss it!!

    Jo-Lynne, would love if you would post the sizes you’re wearing. Especially the Under Armor sweatshirt. :-)
