Fall Fashion Over 40

It's that time of the year when I transition from sandals to ballet flats and boots....scarves and sweaters. 

Layers....lovely layers!

I'm fortunate to be able to wear neat-casual clothing to work, which makes me quite happy!

No stuffy suits for me....I'm more of a leggings and boots kind of a gal, for sure. 

Here are some looks I'm drooling over this fall - pinterest is full of ideas, isn't it? 

What on earth did we do before the internet? I can't even remember!

I'm a big fan of a simple chambray shirt over leggings, with a pair of boots and a scarf. Yes, please - casual, comfy, and still fashionable. Love it!

An asymmetrical hemline is huge this season, and this one button top just screams cozy and chic to me. Love, love, love!!

I have always been drawn to a sweater with unusual details or accents, and this one fits the bill. Just look at that super cute chunky lacing at the neck and sleeves, with the grommets - drooling!

Same with this cute top - those buttons take it to a whole new level!

I don't often wear plaid shirts, but I would definitely make an exception for this look. Casual, trendy, and comfortable. That's what I go for!

Are you noticing a trend here? Yup, my 'go to' look is skinny bottoms with swingy tops, and boots. Perfect for fall in the mountains!

Do you have a 'go to' look for fall?

  1. I love the skinny pants and leggings and loose fitting tops. Perfect for all ages and shapes. I love plaids in the autumn. I wear scarves more than jewelry. I rarely wear watches any more...but love those big grandfather looking ones. LOL. Blessings, hope your weekend is relaxing, xoxo, Susie

    1. I wear a lot of scarves at this time of year, also - I could use a few 'fresh' ones for the season! Enjoy your weekend, sweet Susie!

  3. Oh I do love my leggings , oversized sweaters and boots. I like scarves too but its never cold enough here to enjoy them and my neck is short so I feel like im choking. Haha. My favorite though is my plaid blanket scarf. I basically wore it all different ways and snuggled in it on a given cold day.

  4. Oh yes! LOVE skinny jeans/leggings with long flowy tops and boots! That is my go to cool weather uniform and I am so excited for it! I am almost 60 and still wear these styles. My 30 year old daughter - who is my "consultant" will let me know if something isn't "age appropriate" LOL. I have never been a plaid shirt girl either, but this year I did get an oversized plaid flannel shirt at Old Navy and am loving it with skinny jeans! Yay Fall!!

  6. I can't wait! We're finally getting some temps in the 70's next week end. Yes, that's cool here! Put away the swimsuit and get a long sleeved shirt out at last!

  9. I wear uniforms to work, but I need to get out and find some cute tops like you've shown here for after hours. Love!

    1. I think there's probably something much simpler about wearing a uniform, Vickie, rather than having to think about what to wear every day!

  10. I have some of these on my pinterest board too Mountain Sister, twinning! ;)

  11. My style is your style. Great picks! I am not a plaid girl either, but I recently found a pretty green shirt at Marshall's for $9.99 and I thought, why not. I wore it this weekend and received a lot of compliments. I guess never say never, huh?

  12. I love your style! I'm over 50 now and my body shape has changed drastically over the past 2 years. I blame menopause and my mother...genetics you know. ;) I like skinnier bottoms and flowing comfy tops too. I don't like things that fit tightly. I frequently layer my clothing and add a fun scarf or a sweater that covers the mid second of my body and hides the extra weight gain. Boots and easy slip on leather clogs or shoes are my go to for footwear.
