When your best friend calls and asks if you feel like popping out for lunch, what can you throw on that’s casual, but looks cute? Here are a couple of fresh spring ideas.
Floral Blouse + Jeans
Florals are the easiest way to ease into spring and are a lovely building block for a causal “ladies who lunch” outfit.
Here’s a cute style recipe that you can’t go wrong with. Take a pretty floral blouse in a silky material and pair it with your favorite jeans. Add a transitional bootie or cute espadrille and some pretty jewelry. To dress up the look, go with a sleek clutch in a cheery spring color like peach, pink or pastel blue.
This outfit has a relaxed vibe, but the attention to detail in the accessories dresses it up.
Now isn’t this better than yoga pants and sneakers? Get dressed and get out of the house. You’ll feel better and look fab! The laundry can wait.
Tie-Front Blouse + Jeans
Here’s another variation on the style recipe I just talked about that works for you gals who are already enjoying warm weather.
Tie-front tops are popular this season and for good reason. Tie-front tops create the illusion of a small waist. They are pretty and flattering and in a soft blush color they are perfect for spring.
To get the look, pair this delicate blouse with a pair of jeans and coordinating sandals.
Add a gorgeous, soft handbag and standout earrings. This is a fresh, soft look that will make you feel light and happy.
Moto Jacket + White Jeans
A spring and summer alternative to blue and black jeans are white jeans. They have become a closet staple that every over-40 gal should consider having in her wardrobe.
Please don’t worry – white will not make you look fat styled right. If you are concerned about that, one trick is to wear a column of white by pairing your jeans with a white top like I’ve done there. Top it off with a moto jacket. And yes, women over 40 definitely can wear moto jackets. For spring, consider one in a lighter shade like this pretty pastel blue one.
You see, it really doesn’t take much to look fab. You just need to wear a top that has a touch of a trend, with a pair of basic pants, then add some great accessories. Of course, a swipe of lipstick doesn’t hurt either! Enjoy your lunch.
