Over 40 Style: Shopping at Aerie


As I am trying to figure out what is appropriate and flattering at this age (well over 40), I found myself looking for easy breezy tee shirts which led me to Aerie, a store I always dismissed as for teenagers not moms in midlife. But guess what? You CAN find good stuff here!

Check out what I found:

The tops above are relatively inexpensive. They cover the stomach area (no crop tops for me) and can be machine washed. There were a couple of other light shirts that are perfect for spring.

They offer jeans in various styles, from high waisted to jeggings. I am loving the striped ones above, they are loose and cropped. Cute with those Superga sneakers!

I also found these items:


In looking for dresses, I always seek something that hits around the knee or maybe a little past the knee. These two dresses work well. They are stylish but offer coverage. And the sandals are linked below. The tote bag comes from GOOP but I found one that’s more affordable. Also, who knew Aerie offered earrings? Cute accessories!
