If you are a regular reader of our “What I Wore” segment you’ve probably noticed we have some pretty fabulous over 40 models who appear each week.
These models are our readers!!… and they sure know how to dress and put together some great summer looks. Here’s a few of the photos they sent in this week.
Pretty Peacock Print
You might be brave and confident enough to wear a figure forming, just-above-the-knee-length dress, but choosing the right shoe to go with it can be a struggle. A flat shoe could end up looking too boring and a high shoe may be too provocative.
My loyal reader Donna put a lot of thought into picking the perfect shoe to wear with her slinky peacock print tank dress. In the end she chose a pair of flat, metallic silver thong sandals for an outdoor dinner date with her husband in her home state of New Jersey.
Donna, you look as pretty as a peacock.
Chevron Print Maxi Skirt
Two of the hottest trends at the moment are Chevron-inspired prints and maxi skirts and dresses.
LA-based fashion blogger Rebecca combines both trends for a sizzling look.
At 48, Rebecca rocks her black and white striped maxi skirt by keeping her top simple and adding a fabulous statement necklace.
To keep her accessories from being too matchy-matchy, Rebecca chose a brown leather clutch, which creates a nice contrast against the black. Love the drama of this maxi look, Rebecca.
Fun Beach Coverups
Bored with the same old beach coverups? Why not try something new?
Carina hit the beach in style with all the summer sun essentials. To protect against the sun, she wore her wide-brimmed straw hat, her oversized sunglasses and topped off her pretty floral bathing suit with a matching sarong expertly tied around her waist. You’re a ray of sunshine, Carina.
Sarongs are a versatile option whether you are on the beach or off. They can be tied in a variety of ways for use as a skirt or even a dress. If wearing as a skirt off the beach, pair it with a tank and a statement necklace for a casual look that works for daytime or evening.
