Today is the Ageless Style Link-Up party. I am joined by some wonderful ladies of different ages. I am probably on the “upper” age range, but I will try my best to hold my own with them. Haha The fact that I am a ditz, will be apparent occasionally. Let’s take today’s outfit, just for instance. The email came out weeks ago telling everybody what the theme for today’s link-up would be. I read it, but since then, did nothing about it. I just kept the theme in the back of my mind.Another email was sent out last Thursday or Friday, reminding me that I had not yet sent my pictures in for the link-up graphic. So, I got my pictures ready and went to the email to send them. I looked at all the other ladies pictures, and was confused. Where was all the red-white-&-blue? I thought we were supposed to do a 4th of July post, even though it was the 5th. I went back and re-read the emails. Whooops! It appears that was not the theme after all! The theme is vacation wear. Guess who had no photos of vacation wear??? This blue outfit, which I had decided not to put on the blog, was all I could come up with. Yep, I’m a ditz!!!
The reason I had decided not to put this outfit on the blog, was it looked a little bit familiar. I normally will wear this top with white pants, but since I have been wearing white so much here lately, I decided to wear the blue pants instead. When I downloaded the pictures, something kept nagging at me. I started looking through my archives, and there it was! ALMOST IDENTICAL!!! Have I changed any since I started blogging?
I guess the good news is, in the old post I didn’t link to any clothing or jewelry. And, I wasn’t carrying a purse, so maybe I have improved a little bit. Feel free to brag on me all you want. Lol! The blue and white print tie top is by Karen Kane. I bought it at a little boutique in town a year or so ago. Because I shop my closet, and I do not buy new outfits for every post, some of my clothing items are no longer available. I do look online for similar items, sometimes it is the style and sometimes it is the color.
Karen Kane Tie Top: Cold Shoulder | Tie-dyed | Gorgeous Print | Plus I have on a couple of Plunder pieces of jewelry. I know you are getting sick of the same pieces, but don’t fret. I placed an order on Friday for some new pieces, and they should be here soon!!! You know what that means? New temptations coming your way! Hahaha Today’s items are a couple of my favorites. The Jane necklace, (I added the “t” pendant), and the Miley necklace, layer nicely together. The Miley necklace has a pendant that says, “If it doesn’t challenge you, it doesn’t change you.” Neither one of these necklace’s are over $25.00! The bracelets are the Feather and Pearl, and the Edith bracelet. To place an order through Plunder, go to www.plunderdesign.com/taniastephens or type in my stylist number in the checkout (241007). There is also a dropdown box that will ask if there is an ongoing party, so if you choose “Tania’s P Party” in that box, it would be nice.This striking yellow tote was a birthday present from the girls at work. It is very embellished on the front, and it is plain yellow on the back. The purse is by a designer, Nicole Lee. She has a whole line of unique purses, and I will link to some of my favorites.
Nicole Lee Purse: Fringe | Pearls & Flowers | Cute, Cute, Cute
I have like these cobalt blue pants since the day I first bought them. They have just enough stretch in the material to make them fit nice, and they still give when you sit down. Don’t you hate it when a pair of pants cut you into when you sit down? This pair is by The Limited. They are a couple years old, but I am sure we will be able to find a similar pair out there somewhere.
Limited Blue Pants: Similar | Similar | Plus (Talbots)Finally, we get to these gorgeous yellow espadrilles. This is an old pair that are by Michael Kors. I have worn these for years, and I hope to be able to wear them for a couple more to come. They are cute, and comfortable.
