Chic White Dress

This Elliatt dress is perfect for a beach vacation (or any summer vacation)! I love the sexy open back, cool tassel details, and pretty embroidered fabric. It has breathable long sleeves, so you’ll stay cool too.


Flattering Swimsuit

A flattering swimsuit that YOU feel good in is a must-have when you go on vacation! This Becca swimsuit was a best seller for March and I’m not at all surprised. It has a sexy plunge neck and a color-blocking design that cheats the waist in and actually makes you look slimmer. Sexy AND flattering…win-win!


Versatile Coverup Dress

This 9seed dress is the perfect vacation dress. It doubles as a dress AND a coverup so you can wear it to the beach/pool straight to lunch or dinner. It pulls double duty…Functionality on a trip is key!


Comfy Sandals

These basic tan sandals are a must-have for your next trip and all summer long. They have a lot of cushion so they’re super comfortable and they come in 10 colors! You can wear them with everything from jeans and shorts to skirts and dresses.


Packable Hat

I hate when I pack a hat in my suitcase and it gets squished! That’s why you need a packable hat! This is a great option and only $55.


Trendy Heels

These heels by Vince Camuto are gorgeous and comfortable! They’re the perfect, trendy but versatile heels to add to your spring/summer wardrobe. You can wear these with dresses, skirts, jeans, and more!


Glam Sunglasses

I love the shape of these oversized Chloe sunglasses. And obviously, sunglasses are a vacation necessity! These are a little pricey, but you can find look-a-likes from Amazon or Nordstrom! Some other affordable sunglasses brands I love are Le Specs, QUAY, and BP.


Open Knit Sweater

Throw this sweater over a tank, cami, or swimsuit. Pair it with denim shorts and sandals for an effortless resort-style look!


Cool Bag

Straw, rattan, raffia, and woven bags have been on-trend every summer for a while now! This Hat Attack bag is structured so it fells a bit more sophisticated than your average tote. This is the perfect accessory to add to any spring/summer look!


Printed Dress

If you’re looking for a pretty printed dress for vacation…this is it! It’s super flattering and easy to dress up or down! I bought the blouse version of this dress and LOVE the print!


Denim Shorts

Denim shorts are another must-have! I know many women over 40 don’t think they can wear denim shorts…but you can! Agolde has super flattering and age-appropriate options! If you’re looking for more tips on finding the perfect denim shorts, make sure you check out the post I linked above.



These See By Chloe espadrilles are the perfect mix of casual and dressy! I love the crochet fabric details and that they’re a flatform, making them easier to walk in compared to other platform espadrille sandals.



Of course, you can never go on vacation without SUNSCREEN! This is my favorite Supergoop sunscreen and a must-have for the entire summer. It’s on sale right now during the Spring Sephora Sale too!

After a decade in TV news, a desire to help women “look pretty” sparked a career pivot. I started my own wardrobe consulting business, styling “real” women for many years. In 2014, I changed direction again, using my TV background and styling expertise to launch this website and my YouTube channel. We are now a community of nearly 700,000 dynamic, vibrant, amazing women over 40… who know that age isn’t something you need to hide from. For us, life is just getting started!!
