Well. It’s summer here now in Colorado.It wasn’t last week- but now it is, lol. It’s been awhile since I’ve posted outfits on here, so I thought I’d do a round up post of what I’ve been wearing lately to give you some outfit ideas over 40. Let me know if you like these and I’ll work in a weekly round up!
If you follow my stories on Facebook, you know that most mornings I’m out walking Winston first thing, so leggings are usually my go-to every AM. I feel lucky to live in a state that encourages a more outdoor/active lifestyle and makes it so easy! Fabletics are my hands down favorite for leggings. Their Powerhold ones are so good! They visually take off a few pounds the second you put them on! I’ve been wearing them for years so I can vouch for the quality as well. (Here’s a link for 2 pair for $24 if you’re interested in trying them out.) I like them better than my Lululemon leggings. Layers are always the key to dressing here- it can be chilly in the mornings and then really warm in the afternoon, so I always wear several layers throughout the day. These Amazon tanks are the BEST. great coverage w/ leggings.
Memorial Day Outfit
For Memorial Day it was chilly and rainy but I love the look of this long red duster cardigan thrown on over denim and a tunic top! This is a great way to embrace the cut-off trend if you are apprehensive about them. The whole outfit can be dressed up or down with ease. The cardigan is excellent quality and I’ll probably be ordering another one in white because I know I’ll get a lot of use out of it!
Date night Outfits
Troy and I go on a date night once a week. Even if we can’t go out for a whole evening, we will still make the time to go somewhere for cocktails at least. We both look forward to it- it’s nice to set aside the time to just check in with each other and catch up on whats going on! Y’all know I love neutrals! White jeans make summer date night easy around here and I love this super light weight sweater!
I wasn’t sure about this asymmetrical sweater when I ordered it, but you know the saying from The Sequinist- “Hips never lie and shoulders never age.” (or something like that, lol) Anyway- I love it! It’s a perfect sweater for a night out! This one is inexpensive but I like the silhouette so much that I’ve got my eye on this one while it’s on sale.
Another great summer sweater, this striped one is also perfect to throw on over a swimsuit and shorts at the beach. It has a looser knit and it’s super soft and comfortable. Cropped jeans are TTS and linked here.
Casual is my thing always and I’m loving the sweater vest trend and working on ways to style it into the summer now. And these loafers from Madewell are just amazing. They were so comfy right out of the box and they are such a fabulous, timeless basic to have in your closet! Need to find something comparable in white. I think you can work these into a ton of outfit ideas over 40! Sunglasses are Amazon and linked here (under $15).
I guess I have a thing for long cardigans! This one is super light weight. They are just so easy to wear and I feel like the columnar look is slimming. I’ve been using this summer tote from Curateur almost every day! You can read more about that here. Sunglasses are Diff and linked here.
