Chic white dress

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


Flattering swimsuit

A flattering swimsuit that makes YOU feel good is a must-have when you go on holiday! This Becca swimsuit was a March bestseller and I’m not surprised at all. It features a sexy plunging neckline and a color blocking design that cheats the waist and makes you look even slimmer. Sexy AND flattering…win-win!


Versatile Cover Up Dress

This dress from 9seed is the perfect holiday dress. It doubles as a dress AND a cover up so you can wear it straight to the beach/pool for lunch or dinner. It does double duty… Functionality while traveling is key!


Comfortable 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 are super comfortable and they come in 10 colors! You can wear them with everything from jeans and shorts to skirts and dresses.


foldable hat

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


trendy heels

These heels from Vince Camuto are gorgeous and comfortable! They are the perfect trendy yet 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 of course sunglasses are indispensable on holiday! These are a bit pricey, but you can find look-a-likes from Amazon or Nordstrom! Some other affordable sunglasses brands that I love are Le Specs, QUAY, and BP.


Open knit sweater

Throw this sweater over a tank top, cami or bathing suit. Team it with denim shorts and sandals for effortless resort style!


cooler bag

Straw, rattan, raffia and woven bags have been in fashion every summer for a while now! This Hat Attack bag is structured to be a little more sophisticated than your average tote. This is the perfect accessory to add to any spring/summer look!


dress with print

If you’re looking for a beautiful printed dress for your 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!


Short jeans

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



These See By Chloe espadrilles are the perfect mix of casual and chic! I love the details of the crochet fabric and that they have a flat shape which makes them easier to break in compared to other platform espadrille sandals.



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

After a decade in TV news, the desire to help women “look beautiful” led to a career switch. I started my own clothing consultancy, styling ‘real’ women for years. In 2014 I changed direction again, using my TV background and styling expertise to launch this website and my YouTube channel. We’re now a community of nearly 700,000 dynamic, vibrant, amazing women over 40… who know age isn’t something to hide from. Life is just beginning for us!!
