WILL LIGHT BLUE BE THE COLOR OF SPRING

Saturday, January 28, 2017

50 IS NOT OLD | WILL LIGHT BLUE BE THE COLOR OF SPRINGI hope everyone is having a wonderful Saturday. I am probably going to stay inside and do a little catch-up work. It is supposed to be cold outside so I think a roaring fire, my electric blanket, and laptop will all be on my things to do list. I have a couple of posts upcoming that I need to work on, and a ton of emails that I need to answer and send out. Goodness, it makes me tired just thinking about it all. But, before I start, let me tell you a story that happened Friday.50 IS NOT OLD | WILL LIGHT BLUE BE THE COLOR OF SPRINGJoe called and asked if I wanted to go eat lunch with him Friday. I told him yes and he said he was coming up the road to just watch for him. I jumped in the truck and we went up the road, just about a mile, to one of our favorite restaurants. We ordered and then chit-chatted for awhile waiting on the food. We both ordered a small salad (NO ONIONS) and he got thousand island dressing while I got ranch dressing. He was going on and on about how he loved his dressing. I remembered thinking that I used to eat thousand island dressing all the time when I was a kid so I told him that. He looked at me kind of funny and said, “Tania, you just told me that like 1 minute ago. Don’t you remember saying that?” I laughed and told him that I remembered “thinking” it but I couldn’t remember if I had actually told him that. I think he was getting ready to have me examined. Lol!!!50 IS NOT OLD | WILL LIGHT BLUE BE THE COLOR OF SPRINGDo you think that this is going to be “the” color for spring? If you watched any of the Inauguration or saw any pictures from it, then you know what I am talking about. The first lady, Melania Trump, wore a gorgeous light blue suit from Ralph Lauren. I don’t care about politics but I do love looking at the outfits the first ladies choose. I decided to bring out me light blue turtleneck sweater that I just bought the day before the Inauguration. Boy, was that some timing. Lol! This is by Louis Dell’Olio and it is super soft and comfortable. I kept thinking about Audrey Hepburn and that this was something she would wear. Haha50 IS NOT OLD | WILL LIGHT BLUE BE THE COLOR OF SPRINGI decided to wear mostly gold jewelry with this look. I say mostly because I also have on some silver in my bracelets. Don’t be afraid to mix the two metals. The initial necklace is the Destiny, I wear it ALL the time. I added the matching earrings that I only got recently, called the Glenda. Do you see my trusty BELIEVE necklace? The black bracelet with the charms dangling is my By The Book bracelet. The charms stand for Proverbs 3:5.

I have had lots and lots of messages about joining Plunder and Rodan and Fields this month. January is the perfect time to join and get your year off to a good start. Plunder is hosting an incentive this month which ends on the 31st. They are giving you an additional 3 pieces of jewelry, just because. If you want to sign up go to www.plunderdesign.com/taniastephens and hit the Become A Stylist button. If you need some more information then just message or email me.50 IS NOT OLD | WILL LIGHT BLUE BE THE COLOR OF SPRINGI don’t carry this purse very often. It is a little smaller than the bags I normally carry. I like the black with the brown accents and also the white stitching. This is a Dooney & Bourke purse that I bought at the overstock store in town.


50 IS NOT OLD | WILL LIGHT BLUE BE THE COLOR OF SPRINGI almost didn’t post these pictures. I have not started using my faux tanning lotion yet and my legs are crazy white. Just put on your sunglasses and proceed. How could I channel Aubrey Hepburn and not wear ankle pants and flats??? These are a pair of pixie pants from Old Navy. These are not the stretchy version but the cotton version instead. 50 IS NOT OLD | WILL LIGHT BLUE BE THE COLOR OF SPRINGI have had lots and lots of you say you have never tried Rodan and Fields and I have even had lots of you ask about joining the business. SO, there is going to be a ZOOM call that you can join on Sunday night at 8:00 p.m. EST to hear all about R & F. ZOOM is a free app that you can download to your phone or computer. After it is downloaded you simply open the app and hit the join a meeting icon. It will ask for the meeting ID and you enter this number 7365787052 then hit the join the meeting button. When you join you can choose to mute the audio and video if you don’t want to be seen. I just spent 15 minutes talking to Tracey and Valerie from Australia on ZOOM Friday night my time and Saturday morning their time. It was awesome to get to see and talk with them. This works from anywhere in the US, Canada, and Australia. If you are anywhere else and just want to log in to say hi, that would be really nice. I would love to hear from you gurls.

Rodan and Fields is a company that is going places. It is a HUGE opportunity for someone looking to have a business from their home. The doctors have already paved the way with Proactive and it is pretty much a household name. You do not have to try to get them to understand that the products WORK! I am super excited to be building a team here in the US and I even have some ladies in Australia that are hopping on board. I would love to have a consultant in every state plus Canada. Ask yourself if you know anyone who has skin. That is pretty much the big picture. Everyone can use R & F so put the doubts aside and actually BELIEVE. Go to www.tstephens5.myrandf.biz and go down until you see the Be You Own CEO button. Email me with any questions at fiftyisnotold@gmail.com

    I have a leather pencil skirt in that color! I like it but not love it. Happy weekend!

    Pale blue is super pretty, like Nancy I have a pale blue skirt – albeit mine is checkered and not leather and quite vintage now but I’m sure it will be dragged out again soon – I like to team it up with bright orange of all things 😉 A touch of colour blocking!

    Happy Weekend!

    Funny you are blogging about this color! I actually bought the most beautiful Ivanka Trump light blue suede shoes today! I can’t wait to figure out what I’m going to wear them with but they seemed to be calling out to me to buy! Happy Weekend!

    Oh, didn’t Mrs Trump look fabulous in her stunning powder blue outfit, hey!!!!!! And you look just as stunning in your lovely blue sweater, Tania!!!!! Although this is a casual outfit, I think you look very elegant and just imagine how wonderful the sweater will go with a full length pair of pants in the same colour and a shoe with a medium to high heel!!!!! That is really such a great colour!!!!
    Have a great weekend!!!!!

    Hi Tania,

    Your choice of powder blue makes your eyes sparkle. This blue is such a bright and joyous colour. Your American First Lady, Mrs Trump looked elegant, regal and beautiful. Behind every successful man is a supportive, talented and thoughtful woman. You always dress and style really well Tania, even when casual.

    Hi Tania,

    Pastels are my colors. I have a powder blue long sleeve T and it looked so bare when I put it on. Decided by looking at your sweater, all I need is a few jewelry pieces and away I go. Thanks for a fun post.

      Dianne, you need to start the faux tanning with me. It makes a huge difference and looks so nice, I have no idea why I won’t take the time to put it on.

    The light blue really makes your eyes ‘pop’ – it’s a great color for you !

    Lol…
    I’m sitting here this morning, coffee cup in hand, under the electric blanket watching a few snowflakes swirl outside while perusing your blog. The blue turtleneck is perfect…a shot of color in winter or spring without the jolt. I’d have to wear boots but that’s life up north!

    • Tania
      January 28, 2017

      I took the picture when it was in the 60’s here, so that is why I could get away with the flats. I am normally a boot girl too. Lol!

    Love this shade of blue – and a turtleneck ? A win – win in my book!! Tania you are swaying my opinions on Old Navy with all of your cute pants. It’s always been a ” I never find anything there” store for me – I think I need to give it another chance.
    I know you shared before the product you use for self tanning – please share again – this whiter than white gurl is ready to give it a try!!

    • Tania
      January 28, 2017

      I need to look at this post again myself, Paula. Lol!

      You may have to shop Old Navy online. I have a few Old Navy stores, and many times I go there and they don’t have what is shown online or what Tania is wearing. You may just have to go in the store to check out sizing.That’s where I have the problem, different styles from them I wear in different sizes. Hope this helps. And Tania, as usual you are on point.

    I love pastels…very nice. Love ALL your jewelry. I have a story for you. We are in Florida for 2 months (don’t hate me). My son & family are here for a week. My DIL & I were sitting on the beach and I said that it looked like she already had some tan going. She said she had on a faux tanner that she LOVED. I ask her what it was and she said Roden & Fields. It looked great on her. She said she liked it better than any she’s used. So, when I get home to Missouri, I’m ordering some from you😊

    • Tania
      January 28, 2017

      I haven’t tried it yet but I saw several of the girls in Las Vegas used it and their tan was great. I am planning on ordering it also, I might as well put it in my cart now for the next order. We can tan together. Lol!

    Love the blue! Love the outfit! What self tanner do you use?

    • Tania
      January 28, 2017

      Tela, here is the last post I did on self-tanners. This works well. I am going to be ordering the Self-Tanner from Rodan & Fields next because I have seen so many of my friends that have had wonderful results.

    Oh my goodness Tania! I can so relate to your story about telling your husband something. I actually find myself asking my husband or kids “did I already say this?”. Love the gorgeous blue!!!

  • Glenda Braun
    January 28, 2017

    Like your story because my hubby likes thousand island and I like ranch with NO onions. Lol
    May have to look at those earrings. I mean after all “Glenda ” earrings!!!!!
    Love the blue.

    • Tania
      January 28, 2017

      I thought of you Glenda when I put them on.

  • Roz
    January 28, 2017

    The older I get I tend to shy away from light colors and white; however after reading your post “maybe” I will give pale blue a try.

  • Susan
    January 28, 2017

    That is one of my favorite shades of blue! I hope there are many things to choose from in that color soon.

    Hi Tania! I just found you on Pinterest yesterday and have pinned 26 of your outfits! I am 5’6″ and 155 pounds with a similar shape to you (I also have two grandkids (twins age 6) and another on the way) so I feel so relatable to you! And I LOVE your style! Thanks for sharing, and I will be looking forward to more from you. Have a blessed Sunday!

    Hi Tania,
    Love this outfit. How can I get the Destiny necklace? I’ve been looking for an initial pendent like that!
    Thanks!
