50 IS NOT OLD | BLUE AND ORANGE GO TOGETHERWOW! I can’t believe how fast this week has flown by. This was going to be my week to get some things done. Do you ever have those? Joe has been out of town for a couple days and I thought I could get caught up on things that I have been putting off. I wanted to clean out my jewelry drawers and get the new items organized, I wanted to bring out the spring and summer shoes and put up my winter boots, and I wanted to organize my closet.50 IS NOT OLD | BLUE AND ORANGE GO TOGETHERAsk me what I have done. Nada, nothing, zero!!! Instead, I played all day on Sunday, went to the pre-school graduation on Monday, and went to get my nails done on Tuesday. I went to get my nails done, but, I didn’t get them done. I drove to the shop and they were closed so I did the only thing I could do……I went next door shopping. Lol! I bought the most beautiful wreath for my front door. It is bright colored tulips and I loved the simple design. I came home and immediately hung it on my front door. I may not have got a lot of work done but I have had a joy filled couple of days. Haha!I told you it was gorgeous! Thanks, Jackie!!!50 IS NOT OLD | BLUE AND ORANGE GO TOGETHERThis is sure a bright post after yesterday’s black post. I admit I prefer color hands down. You can see it on my face. I wore this top once to a woman’s club meeting and one of my friends wanted it. I told her where I bought it and she went out immediately and bought the top. I love the colors, orange and blue are one of my favorite combinations. This shirt is by the brand August Silk and I think I bought this at Belks. I am really not positive because it was two years ago. There is a lot of visual interest going on with the top but because I am wearing a solid cardigan and pants, it doesn’t seem too busy.

50 IS NOT OLD | BLUE AND ORANGE GO TOGETHERI just had to show you these Samantha earrings. I got these the other day and they are gorgeous! They are a really light seafoam green with gold antiquing. It is the weight that will shock you. These things don’t weight hardly anything!!!50 IS NOT OLD | BLUE AND ORANGE GO TOGETHERI went with turquoise accessories. The Bernie necklace is one that I have had for a while. It was a past Posse purchase and everyone liked it so much that they made it available in this catalog. I will warn you though that this necklace makes noise as you walk. The metal parts clink against each other. You will not be able to sneak up on someone with this necklace on. Lol! They came out with the matching Brooks bracelet. This bracelet is heavy duty and very well made. The other bracelet is a stretch bracelet with little turquoise dangle. It is called the Chloe and it is made just like the Wanda which is silver. I have opened a new party and that URL is plunderdesign.com/party/tania8 so if you click on a link and it does not tell you that you are shopping in this party, please let me know.

50 IS NOT OLD | BLUE AND ORANGE GO TOGETHERHow about these cute crop pants? I love this bright turquoise color. These are a staple in the summer, you can wear them with a lot of colors. How about white, yellow, orange, navy, lime, or peach? Would you wear any of those colors with turquoise? I have a couple pants in different shades of turquoise so I held up the shirt and compared the pants until I found the one that matched the best. That is how I scientifically pick out my outfits in the mornings. Lol!

  5. Love it! Blue and orange is one of my favorite combos. Just got a pair of Clarks orange sandals and a white Kate Spade bag with oranges and blossoms all over it for the print and can’t wait to wear them assuming the temperatures around me go up above 55! Lol! Enjoy!

  6. Teri Getler Matthews Reply

    lol don’t know which I love more…the wreath or your color combo! Have a great day.

  7. Yes, you look great in colour! Love the outfit ad the wreath. Sometimes we have the best of intentions but something better comes along!

  8. Since my son goes to UF I wear blue and orange together quite a bit! Never thought I would but you know the things we do for our kids! Love the wreath on your front door!

  9. Love this outfit, love your wreath! Your bag does not look teal but I love the color.

  10. Extra great hair day girl! Love the outfit. You might just convert me from my black wardrobe 😉

  11. Very cute outfit. I really like the top.
    That wreath is very pretty. So summery.

  12. Sondra Koons Reply

    LOVE color and love your outfit! I’d wear ALL the colors you mentioned with turquoise. Also, love your new wreath!

  13. Great outfit. I love color because it lifts my spritits for the day or the event.

  14. I am going to look for something orange to add to my spring and summer wardrobe for sure! You look so bright and cheerful. I have very similar coloring with blonde hair and light green eyes. I never thought orange could work for me…now I know! Thanks Tania!

  15. Virginia Pfeiffer Reply

    This outfit is terrific. Love everything from top to bottom. Love blue and orange myself. Very sunny.

  16. Love the colors, love the pattern! And when i read your title for today–“Blue and orange go together”–I laughed, and thought, of course they go together—they are opposites on the color wheel. Like red and green, purple and yellow, etc. Opposite colors are the best, best, best combinations, and make each pop like no other. Job well done!

  17. I think I need to add some orange to wardrobe, because it looks super on you, Tania. And I guess I’ll hop on over to Justfashionnow to check out their site….. Have a good day!

  18. Melesa Garrison Reply

    I love orange and blue and my second favorite combo is navy and Kelly green.

  19. Love this look, the colors on the top are beautiful and I’m not even a fan of orange! It has to be the right shade for me. 🙂

  20. Hello Tania
    I am following you for a while now, far away from the Netherlands. As you love the same bright colours as I do, I like your daring style very much. I always envy your accessories, you have a way of putting multiple items together, I would not have the guts to do that. And I would never find such lovely items. Please, would you be so kind to make a topic on how you asemble your accessories each day on every outfit? Where do you start, do you have a rule to build it up? How about colourcombining? Where do you buy them, etc. I hope you do understand my questions.

      Good morning, Claudia! It is wonderful to hear from someone so very far away. I am really still learning the whole stacking trend with accessories. For necklaces, I just try to make sure that each one can be seen. As for bracelets, I try to mix thicknesses, textures, etc. I put on something and then change it if I don’t like it. It is just about trying, you can’t actually mess up because there are no “rules.”

  21. I really enjoy seeing you in bright colors and prints. You have served as a real inspiration for me to try something other than solids and lots of black. I’m trying to move out of my comfort zone.
    Thanks, Tania!

  22. Lee Warriner Reply

    I LOVE your outfit. Orange is one of my favorite colors. It is so bright and cheerful. It is absolutely perfect!

  23. Charlcy Green Reply

    I love this color combination too and have an outfit almost like this!

  24. Elizabeth Conte-Vitullo Reply

    Heck ya blue and orange go together! And your print top is just so unique. Love it all, wreath included!

  25. LOVE the top! LOVE the wreath! I’m one of those who do not reply much, but today’s was great! Thanks for all your ideas!
