50 IS NOT OLD | CABLE KNIT SWEATER VESTWe made it through another weekend. It went way too fast for me, how about you guys? It seems like I was really busy, but I can’t think of a thing I accomplished. Well, I did get out a few fall decorations, and I did clean out a cabinet that was stinky.  I also got to spend a couple of hours with Emersyn, so I guess I had a good weekend after all.50 IS NOT OLD | CABLE KNIT SWEATER VESTIs a cable knit sweater vest still considered stylish? Truthfully, I don’t know, and I really don’t care. I like this vest, even though it is really old, and it was what I wanted to wear today. This vest has always been one of my favorites, because of the cable knit and also the color. I don’t know if this color is considered camel or caramel, but I like it no matter which. This vest is by Ralph Lauren.

50 IS NOT OLD | CABLE KNIT SWEATER VESTI have on a necklace set from Plunder today that matches perfectly. The Dalia necklace, Cecelia bracelet, and the Dotty earrings are a set that you will be able to wear all 4 seasons. This is a gold tone set, that has stones in the colors of topaz, baby pink, and gray. The bracelet is made so that you can remove extra links to make the bracelet smaller. 50 IS NOT OLD | CABLE KNIT SWEATER VESTThis necklace extends to 22″, but I wanted it to hang lower. I took a 7 inch bracelet and attached it to the necklace, letting it hang to the length I wanted. I just tucked it all under the collar, and no one knows the difference. Except all of you, that is. Haha
50 IS NOT OLD | CABLE KNIT SWEATER VESTThis shows a little better the colors of the set, and you can see that I only have one link in the bracelet. It could expand by two more links. I like how these companies are figuring out ways to accommodate a wider range of us ladies.

I had 3 ladies take me up on the Plunder offer to become stylist’s this weekend, and they will all receive 4 extra piece of jewelry! But, now I am offering all of you some savings if you are in the market for some new Plunder jewelry. I am going to be offering 10% off any order that totals 50.00 or more. I wish there was a way for this to happen at checkout, and maybe there will be a way when the new software comes out. Until then, here is what I will do. Place your order (go to, email me with you order number, and I will send you the 10%, either by Paypal or by check.50 IS NOT OLD | CABLE KNIT SWEATER VESTIt is time for the blue jeans to come back out of the closet. (BTW, I made a video of my closet(s) for you gurls, and I will show that to you in the next couple weeks) I decided to do a LARGE cuff on my jeans today, instead of rolling them up twice in a smaller cuff. I know I am looking really pale right now, but I had a spot taken off for a biopsy, a week or so ago, and I don’t want to put any faux tanner on. Joe told me the other night that I was glowing in the dark. Lol!

The wedge booties I have on are by Isaac Mizrahi. They are extremely comfortable, and they have a nice buckle detail.

50 IS NOT OLD | CABLE KNIT SWEATER VESTYou knew I wouldn’t be content to just try on one pair of shoes. I would love to start wearing some of my fall booties, but it is still in the high 80’s most days. I would burn up! So, I switched shoes and put on the (c/o) Nina shoes crochet knit sandals named the Nevaeh, that I love. Now my little piggy’s could breathe again. I noticed I also need to have my toenails painted. Dang, I am getting lax. Remember, Nina shoes are offering a 20% to all my gurls, you just have to enter Nina50 at checkout.

I am carrying a pop of color in my cobalt blue cinch tote. I don’t normally like a purse with this type closure, but I loved the color and the zipper detail. I bought it from a local vendor, the same one where I bought my ivory purse. It is faux leather, but that doesn’t bother me in the least. This is not a purse that I envision me carrying for years, it is a purse for right now.

50 IS NOT OLD | CABLE KNIT SWEATER VESTMe and Emersyn went to get some frozen yogurt on Saturday. She saw me outside, and came running. “NeeNee, can we go for a ride in your car?” She doesn’t really want to go anywhere, she just wants to watch her video in the car. We hopped in, and headed down the road to get some frozen yogurt. While we were there, I took a picture and snapchatted it to Joe. (Yes, we have snapchat) and he showed up to join us. You can add me on Snapchat, my name is taniastephens50.50 IS NOT OLD | CABLE KNIT SWEATER VESTJust wait till you here what we did on Sunday, Emersyn loved it.

I wanted to remind everyone, that the Rodan and Fields Redefine AMP It Up special will end on the 30th. This is a wonderful deal, with over 600.00 in products for only 297.00.

    Lovely look with your Ralph Lauren vest Tania.

    My weekend seemed to be around food with a 12 course dinner event on Friday and then a fabulous cooking show on Saturday…

    Wishing you a lovely start to the week.

    I absolutely love this look! We are finding cooler weather here and I’m checking my closet for vests. Look like I now need a tan sweater one.

    Have a great day!

      I tried setting it up for you Deborah. It will send you a confirmation email which you need to answer. If you don’t see one, be sure to look in the junk or spam folder. Let me know if this works for you.

    Love love love this outfit…so stylish. It hasn’t cooled off here in central Florida yet, so this particular look will have to wait.

    Even if this type of vest isn’t the most modern, I think you’ve done a perfect job of showing it with more contemporary items!! Your ankle boots, your jeans cuffed and that necklace all add some great style!!

    Love your look today and really kinda jealous. It’s been 97-99 degrees here in Alabama for the last several days and any thoughts of lovely fall clothing are fluttering in the breeze of the air conditioning and ceiling fans. I like both looks but the booties really pop the outfit for me.

    Tania, maybe you can help me? I bought the Shellee bracelet from Plunder, which I LOVE! But I have not been able to wear it because it breaks every time I take it out of the box! I’ve fixed it several times, but it still keeps breaking. I’ve tried to contact Plunder but their website just keeps saying, “contact us again later”. Do you have any ideas? Thanks, Charlcy

      Here is what you do. Take a picture with your phone of the item, showing how it is broke. Email the picture to:
      along with your name and order number. They will take care of the problem. They should send you a replacement, and you don’t even send in the old one. If you have any problems, let me know.

    I love sweater vests and the color of yours is fabulous. Camel/caramel can be so tricky because often is looks dirty or gray but yours has a lovely warm tone to it and it compliments your coloring.
