If you are a 40+ mom stuck in the rut of wearing yoga pants and an oversized tee, then this post should inspire you.
Take a look a these three hip, over 40, fashion & beauty bloggers who show you that mom chic is easier to achieve than you might think.
Say Yes to Yellow
Janise, the mother of twin boys, says she always makes the effort to look fabulous because it makes her feel good.
Recently she snuck away on date with her husband to a French bistro and this is what she wore. Janise paired skinny gray jeans with a bold black and white striped top and then punched up the look with a bright yellow, lemon zest jacket.
This bold color instantly adds energy and excitement to her look. To dress things up she added a gorgeous crystal brooch statement necklace and some sexy black patent heels. Isn’t it interesting how a little bit of bling and shine can totally glam up an outfit? To see Janise’s fabulous collection of clothing, shoes, and jewelry, visit her blog Mama In Heels.
Boyfriend Chinos To the Rescue
For days when jeans just won’t do, it’s nice to have another option in the closet. Chinos and khakis are great alternatives to jeans.
Style blogger Alison loves wearing her relaxed boyfriend chinos on weekends. As the mom of three, she likes to keep her style simple and is always coming up with easy ways to look pulled together without breaking the bank.
Here she pairs her chinos with a striped top (stripes are obviously the must have in tops this season), a khaki jacket, a cute pair of bright flats and a statement necklace.
