COMFY, CASUAL, AND CASHMERE

50 IS NOT OLD | COMFY, CASUAL, AND CASHMEREChristmas is coming quickly!!! How many of you are through with your shopping? How many of you have not even started your shopping? lol! I am somewhere in between. I have done some shopping but it has been very little. I hate that I am getting to the age where I now give money or gift cards. At least I am not to the age where I give underwear and socks. Hahaha!50 IS NOT OLD | COMFY, CASUAL, AND CASHMEREHow many of you remember getting underwear and socks from your Grandmother? Am I the only one who had a practical Granny? Just thinking about this makes me smile. She was right, I always wore my underwear and socks. I wonder if she was the one who bought me the “days of the week” underwear? I remember going home on the school bus one day and my little sister announcing to a boy that I had on “Wednesday” underwear. I was probably 11 or 12 at the time and I wanted to do two things. One, I wanted to crawl under the seat. Two, I wanted to strangle my little sister. She better be glad that Mom was in the car at the bottom of the hill to pick us up that day.50 IS NOT OLD | COMFY, CASUAL, AND CASHMERE
Little sisters, don’t you just love them? Anyway, I have on a comfy outfit today. I wanted to be a little more on the casual side today so I put on this super soft cashmere top. This mock-neck turtleneck is by Isaac Mizrahi and it came from the overstock outlet store in town. If you have been a follower of mine for a while then you know that means I paid $12.00 for this top.

50 IS NOT OLD | COMFY, CASUAL, AND CASHMEREMy necklace today is the Gabbie. You can see the colors so much better in today’s pictures. The different variations in the beads are really pretty. I wore it in this post, but it looks better to me with this outfit. What do you think?50 IS NOT OLD | COMFY, CASUAL, AND CASHMEREI hesitate to even show you my bracelets. They are all from the Monday Madness specials that Plunder had on Cyber Monday. I can’t even remember the names of them and since they are not currently available, I couldn’t look them up. The turquoise one is set in gold tone and the pearl is in silver tone. They both are magnetic closure.50 IS NOT OLD | COMFY, CASUAL, AND CASHMEREDo you remember this pose? How many of you have a picture where you are sitting with your chin on your hand???? 😝  I am just trying to show you my black leather bracelet, which is sold out and you can’t buy, but it is just like the brown leather Pippa that you CAN buy. The turquoise earrings are the Sungloe. I had to close my last party, so to place an order you go to www.plunderdesign.com/party/50isnotold50 IS NOT OLD | COMFY, CASUAL, AND CASHMEREI am wearing a pair of bootcut jeans from Maurices today. These are actually the Maurice brand and I can’t tell a huge amount of difference between them and the Vigoss. These have held up and washed great.

50 IS NOT OLD | COMFY, CASUAL, AND CASHMEREMy booties are from Old Navy and they have been a fairly good boot. I never expected them to last me very long but I have been pleasantly surprised. My purse in by Dooney & Bourke and I did expect it to last me for a long time. Lol! There are some things that you know are good quality and you expect more from them.

50 IS NOT OLD | COMFY, CASUAL, AND CASHMEREIf any of you are planning on buying any Plunder or Rodan and Fields as Christmas presents, you had better be placing your orders soon. I have not heard a cutoff date from Plunder but for Rodan and Fields the FedEx ground cutoff date would be the 13th. Wondering what in the world you could give for Christmas that is R & F? I am getting Joe the Beyond the Shave, my hairdresser is going to receive the Redefine Age Shield Hand BalmΒ or the Essentials Daily Body Moisturizer. I figure that her hands stay in water so much that this will be a product she could use. Also, this woman puts scissors in my hair, I want to keep her happy. Haha!

The winner of the $30.00 Plunder gift certificate is Crystal. Crystal only asked for her family to be together and good health, but she is also getting jewelry! Congratulations!!! You will receive an email from me shortly.

    Tania, you look to be the epitome of comfort in that fabulous outfit. I adore the look of boot cut jeans with boots (it’s in the name so that’s what you should wear with them).

    I love everything about this outfit, I sometimes feel a little restricted wearing a bulky sweater so the fact that you can have the warmth plus wear something more form fitting underneath make this lovely cashmere a winner for me!

      I know what you mean, Caroline. Big and bulky bothers me too. This was very light and comfy. Joe kept telling me all day how good he thought I looked. I laughed and told him it was because I was dressed in the color of oatmeal. I think he was hungry. Hahaha

    Such a cute story Tania – I buy my hubby week day socks each year and he is very careful to wear the right pair each day – it makes me laugh so much.

    Would you wear a furry stole? http://funkyforty.com/revealing-the-real-secret-behind-best-secret/

    Soon jealous of your outlets in town! $12 for a cashmere Isaac sweater? Unheard of! Love the outfit, and the purse, oh! Those Dooney and Bourke purses are so great. I especially love the color of this one.

    My grandmother used to give the gifts of handkerchiefs. She would add crochet or embroidery to them. (I have saved some and wished that I would have saved more!) For a millennial, it is probably like receiving a bustle or a rotary dial phone…”What is it?”

    Cashmere is one of my favorite things and always worth the money. I try to purchase pieces that will stand the test of trends, since living on the Gulf Coast, cashmere doesn’t get a lot of wear. LOL

    This makes me want to wear my boot cut jeans. I’ve been stuck on my skinny jeans for too long.
    You always look great!

    Oh! I forgot to share about grandmothers and Christmas! My Mimi was quite glamorous. Yes, I sometimes received undergarments, but they were always lovely. I can honestly say I never had days of the week undies (which I was a little jealous of at sleepovers). I remember getting things of the softest pink and blue, soft in color and fabric. As I grew up, she gave me the prettiest slips. And monogrammed handkerchiefs. No matter how I try, I will never be as glamorous as she was.

    This is my kind of outfit. Love everything about it and have something very similar. So comfy but very pulled together!

    My mom bought me the day-of-the-week underwear, and at four and five you’re not clear on the concept of why Friday’s was red w/black writing, Saturday’s was black w/red lettering, and Sundays were white with pink letters…hmmm….I LOVED them!!

    My great-grandma, on the other hand, always got my sister and me the practical, white, cotton undies!!

    You look great, as always!

    Love this outfit! My Mom started giving undies & cash as she got older. After we lost her my niece started giving the girls “cute” socks. I cried when I opened my socks the first Christmas after losing Mom. Now a funny story about my grand girls, 2 years ago I couldn’t get either to give me ideas, I told them if they didn’t I was getting them old lady undies. Our oldest thought it was hilarious, she was 16 at the time, Brooklyn was extremely embarrassed. Even though they mainly get cash & gift cards I want to give them “something” Sorry for such a long post. Your Granny and undie gifts brought happy memories to mind!

      My granny always wrote a really long letter in her Christmas cards. Ad she got older the letters got smaller till it was just a signature. I treasure the cards I can find.

    Funny you should mention socks and underwear. That is what my 24 year old son asked for (along with a few other things). Guess he doesn’t want to spend his own money for them!! Too funny.

    • Tania
      December 12, 2016

      Thats too funny. Joseph asked for the same thing one year. Lol!

      There has been a glitch. I am hopeful that everything is now fixed.
