Transitioning to Fall Fashion with Glamour Farms

Fall Fashion over Forty--easily transitioning one outfit from summer to fall.

 

Today we’re partnering again with Glamour Farms to talk about fashion, in particularly transitioning from summer to fall fashion. This time of year the weather seems to easily be confused, so it can be hard to know what to wear. If you dress for the cooler mornings you are hot by afternoon, right? Today I have a cute outfit to show you today that transitions straight from summer to fall.

Before I get to the fashion details, as Christy mentioned in her post here, she and I are thrilled to partner with this awesome fashion website to share stylish and affordable clothes for women like us! In other words, women who aren’t young but aren’t yet heading for the nursing home, if know what I mean? Glamour Farms has clothes for women of all shapes and sizes too–all the way from missy to plus size so be sure to check out their website here. And the very best part is that we get to give our readers a $10 off gift certificate so you can shop without guilt!

It is also worth mentioning that most of you know that while Christy and I share uncannily similar taste in almost everything, through this partnership we’ll be able to show you our {slightly} different fashion styles. While she lives in a Southern town and tends to dress up more than I do, I live outside of Washington DC where the look is more casual. So, whichever look you prefer we’ll be presenting both our styles each month so hopefully that will suit everyone’s different shopping needs 🙂

The outfit I have for you today is Fall-ready for a number of reasons. The tunic is lightweight and roomy so it looks great with a skinnier jean while covering up all those trouble spots :). It is a great basic from the front, but it is the back that steals the show! Check out how cute this shirt is from behind, isn’t that a fun surprise?

Style note: Glamour Farms has the best line of shape wear EVER. This shirt would look even more *fun* with a nude-colored shape wear top under it {which will help the top slide around all nice}, I have on white underneath which also, of course, works but if you want to keep them guessing you could go with a nude shaper on top. These are amazing friends, you need to invest in some of the Glamour Farms shape wear, they make a huge difference in how your clothes fit, I promise.

Now, a few words about the pants. When we had our styling session with the Glamour Farms team during the Haven Conference, I snatched up these skinny pants and didn’t give them back. I’d been looking for an olive color pant forever–for the simple reason that I like to wear a jean jacket in the Fall but you can’t really pair a jean jacket with jeans, right? (That can be just much denim going on!) Olive is the perfect color for Fall and it goes with everything–black, white, pink–they all look great with paired with olive.

The Glamour Farms girls convinced me to size WAY down in these pants and what do you know, they were right! My first thought when they held up the pants they wanted me to try on was “those would fit my daughter!” These pants have so much stretch to them once you put them on you won’t believe how nicely they fit. I loved them so much they all laughed at me because I told them, under no circumstances, was I leaving Atlanta without these pants! Now, if you don’t like the super-fitted look, feel free to size-up or if you are unsure just call their customer service. One of the best parts of purchasing with Glamour Farms is that their customer service team can help you get your perfect fit, how nice is that? Internet shopping with the personal touch! I love these ladies 🙂

OK, let’s talk about transitioning this outfit from summer to Fall. Right now (in late August) I am wearing this outfit just as you see above–the white tunic top, the olive skinnies and sandals. I also added a fun, pale blue necklace to keep it feeling light in the hot weather. Sorry it’s hard to see my necklace in the beautiful sun we had the day we took these photos.

Once Labor Day has come and gone and sandals seem to be a little past their prime, just switch out the shoes. I added a cute leopard flat and switched to a classic gold necklace. Leopard flats are my go-to all Fall and Spring, I just purchased the pair below and love them 🙂

Finally, for once Fall really sets in, I added a jean jacket and some ankle booties, perfect for chillier days. I am starting to get excited about the coming cooler weather and all that comes with it–football, pumpkins and such 🙂  I added my favorite gold bag too for this outfit, that color seems to be sold out but the cognac color {linked below} would be gorgeous for Fall.

A final note, my husband and I try to be very conscience about spending our money with companies that share our values and try when we can to buy things that are made here in America. Christy and I were both so impressed by the family that runs Glamour Farms, with a shared faith and a bold love of both fashion and the Lord you can’t go wrong shopping with them!

I will admit it is much easier to take pictures of home decor than stand in front of the camera, I am not going to lie, I wouldn’t see doing this for just any company. Thankfully, I have the world’s funniest cameraman (my husband), my expression above clearly is saying ‘you did not just say that’! Never a dull moment!
