What to wear in your 30s/40s

If I told you that 3 years ago I was wearing big baggy bootcut jeans, flat ankle boots (comfy ones from Clarks) and a polo neck jumper as my standard Mum outfit would you believe me? Well it's true!

This is why I LOVE Avenue 57.  We are a collection of women who are are of a 'certain age'. We get together online to share what we're wearing every day and hopefully inspire others who may be stuck in a style rut, have lost their way as they come out the other side of babysville and/or both of these reasons.
 
I have to say that I love looking at what other women wear and seeing if I have those items in my wardrobe. It's because I'm ultimately lazy you see, I don't have any style flair of my own so the best way is to copy!
 
Here are some of my favourite looks over the past month.
 
Fashion40ish (click here to see all her looks). I am so in love with this lady I can't tell you in words how much! She has EFFORTLESS style and I am inspired always with whatever she wears.

 
Fashion Lover (click here to see all her looks). If anyone knows how to accessorise with a scarf it's this mighty fine lady. She also wears great colours and I am inspired every time by the denim/khaki combo.
 
 
Fashion Passion (click here to see all her looks). Best hallway on A57 firstly and her style is amazing. This gorgeous lady owns a hair salon and I dream every day of hair like hers (plus her wardrobe!).
 
 
I Heart Fashion (click here to see all her looks). I love the shirt/jumper combo and it's a great look with the lighter shirt and cream jumper. I Heart Fashion has the most versatile hair EVER!
 
 
Is that Really From There? (click here to see all her looks). If there is one lady that stands out for me it's this gorgeous lady. I have been inspired on so many levels with the outfits she posts. She is the QUEEN of pencil skirts! 

 
Mrs W (click here to see all her looks). I am so in love with this coat. I was sold on this look from the very first time I saw it. Mrs W has style!
 
 
My Fashionable 40s (click here to see all her looks). I love the mash up of patterns (leopard print and stripes) and I also love the colour pallet here - as always, a super gorgeous relaxed stylish look.

 
Nicki B (click here to see all her looks) - I love the way Nicki dresses - she works in a bridal shop so glam is the name of the game and she pulls it off for work (and pleasure every time she posts)

 
Suzie 3 Cat (click here to see all her looks). I love how a simple casual outfit (jumper and jeans) as been added to with a fab necklace and amazing boots.
 
 
Do you naturally have a style flair or do you, like me, look at everyone around you and copy them? I'd love to see your latest look on Avenue 57 - click here to upload your photo now.

  7. Wow Fiona how lovely of you. I love A57, as you know, and I never fail to be inspired. You are a star. This has perked me up as, I must admit, over the last few days I have been feeling a bit flat. I will pull my socks up, thank you for my boot up my bottom. Lots of Love H xx

    1. Sorry to hear you've been feeling flat - I can relate as I get frequent periods where I feel like this. If in doubt in the future put those red jeans/trousers on and smile - I love that look on you so much.
