You Snooze, You Lose

50 Is Not Old | You Snooze, You LoseI know it is Saturday, but if you snooze, you lose. I am talking about the clearance sales that are going on everywhere. The stores are busy gearing up for spring, so all the merchandise they bought too much of, has to go. Now is the perfect time to buy some items at a hefty discount.50 Is Not Old | You Snooze, You Lose

Fall and winter will come again, so it is not like you won’t get to wear your purchases. The shearling vest I have on, was on the clearance rack at Classy Closet. I know that plaid and shearling may not be in style forever, but I feel like I will be able to still wear it in the upcoming year. Besides, it is snowing today, so who knows how long it is going to stay cold. Here, here, and here are a couple different vests, if you have been wanting to try out this style. On the vest, I usually size down at least one size. I find they look better when they pull apart, instead of letting the flaps overlap.50 Is Not Old | You Snooze, You Lose

I would recommend checking out the return policy at any of the stores. Just remember, sizes and the amount of product is limited. So, if you are interested, do not wait. I put a vest on my post the other day, and I noticed today, it is all sold out.


Michael Kors Espadrille Wedge Sandals, these would be perfect for NOW. Why are they on clearance?

Studded Pointy-toe T-strap flats, another perfect for spring shoe. What is wrong with these people?

Cross-strap ballet flat in black or nude. Yep, will work for spring and summer.

Michael Kors pebbled leather moccasin, in the color called ballet. This is a pale pink.

Wedge suede bootie in black, charcoal, or taupe.

Michael Kors Leather Riding Boot in carmel. I think these are a timeless look.

Leopard print, calf-hair mule pump. These are fabulous!!!

Converse sneakers. These will be perfect for spring and summer, and even fall.

Tory Burch Grant Logo Sandal. I want these soooo bad. If any of you buy them, don’t tell me.


Fringe leather tote in whiskey

Dooney & Bourke Zip Zip satchel

Michael Kors signature tote

Rebecca Minkoff (micro) lexi bucket bag in baby pink

Lauren Ralph Lauren tote in vanilla

Kate Spade top zip purse in two tone gray. Very nice.

Rebecca Minkoff satchel in bleached blue. Perfect for spring and summer.50 Is Not Old | You Snooze, You LoseJo-Lynne Shane had a denim trend post on Friday, and these jeans hit 4 of the categories. Skinny, distressed, high-waist, and frayed hem. This is a high-waist rockstar jeans from Old Navy. I ordered these last fall, and I have worn them several times. I bought them in tall, so I have the cuff rolled twice. The burgundy booties are by Isaac Mizahari, and I bought them at the QVC outlet. Here is a similar pair.50 Is Not Old | You Snooze, You LoseMy purse is a Aimee Kestenburg satchel. (Sorry the picture looks fuzzy) This is the first one of her purses I have bought. So far, I am really liking the size, the feel of the leather, and the weight. It seems to be really good quality, but not so heavy like some of the nicer purses I have. Here is mine in several different colors, and here is an “as is” version. I have on three bracelets that are made alike, only the wording is different. I have on faith, amazing grace, and pray. I like the bracelets, and I like them stacked.50 Is Not Old | You Snooze, You LoseI have on two Stella and Dot bracelets, (here, and here) and my Michael Kors watch. I took a close-up for you to see how I have the bracelets stacked. I have on my favorite (for the moment) necklace. Someone asked that I do a post of jewelry, and I am going to be working on that for the near future. Thanks for the question. It is hard to come up with new content daily, so anytime you have a post idea, please let me know.50 Is Not Old | You Snooze, You LoseJoe was leaving as I was taking pictures this morning. It is weird to be out on your front porch with a camera and tripod, trying to “strike” a pose, and having neighbors drive by. At least with Joe, he knows what I am doing. The neighbors probably just think I have lost my mind. Hahaha50 Is Not Old | You Snooze, You LoseHe was hanging out the window being silly. He still makes me smile:) After almost 30 years of marriage, that is a very good thing.

So, shake the cobwebs off, wipe the sleep out of your eyes, and get your coffee. It is time to do some serious shopping. I only linked to shoes and purses today, but I plan on looking for the steals on tops and jeans later in the week. Pace yourself. Haha

The comment section is at the end of the post, so keep scrolling. I look forward to reading all the comments, they make my day.

    Ooh really like what you’re wearing. So cozy but classy. The one thing about plaid is that it’s always stylish – it’s a classic. Thanks for the info.I might as well shop, no beach today! It’s mid 40s and windy this AM. Funny about the neighbors and it’s a blessing to have a husband, who after many years of marriage, still makes us laugh. Happy hunting or should I say gathering!😌

    I love all your posts! I’m 57 and my style has always been more conservative (black, grey, not alot of color or “zing”, especially as I get older) but I love the posts and pictures with links! I’m going to be dressing differently this spring and I’m starting with the turquoise t-strap pointed toe flats!

    Thanks so much for proving ’50 is not old’!

    For reference what sizes do you wear?? Can you share?

      I usually wear a size 10 in pants and a large in tops. I don’t like my shirts too tight. This vest is a small. Haha

    Nice post! And you are spot on with the clearance sales. I hit pay dirt on strappy leopard FM pumps at Nordstrom–and I’m 60! I also snagged a great black-watch plaid pea coat at Old Navy for $9.99. Not to mention that I actually picked up a few items for summer–and they have already been packed into my luggage for our annual trip to France! You look adorbs!

    You look great! I love the vest. I also love end of season sales. Sometimes I will see something that is beyond my financial reach in a store and just keep checking back every time I run to town. If it doesn’t sell out I get it when the sales hit.
    My version of the lottery,lol. Have a great weekend.

    Great casual look – I adore that vest (no wonder it’s sold out!) and your new bag too. xox

    I love your style! I’m curious what your height and weight are? What size do you usually try on? I think we may be the same size but pictures can be deceiving. Keep posting!

      Wendi, I agree about pictures, the can be very deceiving. I have learned how to stand, etc. to get the best look, so I am probably bigger than you think. I am 5’6″ tall and around 150-160 at any given time. I don’t weigh myself very often and instead rely on how my clothes are fitting to gauge my weight. I normally wear a size 10 or a size large. I hope this helps.
