50 IS NOT OLD | MAKE A STATEMENT WITH THIS SKIRTI have had several people ask me about blogging. The questions usually range from how do you get started, how do you find readers, or how do you make money. These are all really good questions and if you asked 30 bloggers you would probably get 30 different answers. The other question usually revolves around products and reviews.50 IS NOT OLD | MAKE A STATEMENT WITH THIS SKIRTWhen you start blogging you can expect to start getting lots of emails! I probably get between 4 or 5 emails a DAY asking me to do a review, sponsored post, or someone wanting to do guest posts. If you notice you do not see me do very many of either. I am very picky about the companies I sponsor. I want to make sure that their products fit my personality and my pocketbook. I have had some oversea companies contact me and their clothing was so outrageously priced there was no way I would put that on my blog. If I won’t pay that price, I certainly am not going to bring it to you just to get something for free.50 IS NOT OLD | MAKE A STATEMENT WITH THIS SKIRTThis outfit suits me to a “tee.” I have worked with the Purple Poppy multiple times and for a very good reason. I LOVE the clothing, I LOVE the quality, and I LOVE that I can afford the items. The Tempo Paris Printed Skirt in Taupe is a real statement with lots of unique details. I was smitten as soon as I saw it. ❤️ It is so elegant and casual at the same time, how can that be?50 IS NOT OLD | MAKE A STATEMENT WITH THIS SKIRTEach layer is so lightweight and airy. One touch of the fabric had me oohing and ahhing. I turned in inside out to check out the fabric and I was not surprised when I found out it was 70% Silk and 30%. The label didn’t specify but I am betting on dry clean only just to be safe. 50 IS NOT OLD | MAKE A STATEMENT WITH THIS SKIRTErin usually sticks a little extra present in my package such as this pearl necklace. The first time I saw the extra pink wrapping paper in my package I was a little confused. I opened it up and was delighted to find this necklace. It is very light weight because the pearls are suspended on fishing line. It has a lot of movement and I thought it went perfectly with the skirt.50 IS NOT OLD | MAKE A STATEMENT WITH THIS SKIRTI chose to wear a taupe top with the skirt and stay in a neutral palette. However, I think a bright pink top would have been stunning with this skirt. I can also see me taking this to the beach with me. I guess I need to talk Joe into taking me to the beach first but this skirt will definitely go with me.

The skirt can run small according to the Purple Poppy but I am wearing a large which is my normal size and it fits great. If you have any doubts I am sure you could call and talk to someone and be sure to tell them Tania sent you. Lol!

I am not sure if you have ever noticed but there is a search bar on the far right at the beginning of each post. You can type in Purple Poppy to see all the other outfits I have worn from them. I was amazed to see that my first item was last May. Wow! I have been working with them for over a year!

When you check out, type in Poppy to receive 10% off. PLUS, if you spend a $100.00 you will receive free shipping. That is a pretty sweet deal. Once you get this skirt be sure to let me know how you wore it.

    This is stunning! Love the necklace and the skirt is fantastic! Shoes look great too!

  3. Tania, love the whole look! The necklace is stunning. You and Joe were in my dreams last night, don’t know if it’s because of my lack of sleep lately or your post about flying with him yesterday was the last thing I read but anyway somehow we ended up at a jimmy buffet concert together like we were just ole’ (not old) friends.

      Michelle, that is too funny! Joe and I love Jimmy Buffet and would love to go to a concert with you. Lol!!! I asked him what kind of Buffet quote would he say back to you. And he mentioned something about a Pirate looks at 40 and then laughed and said, “40 would be wonderful, how about 60?” Haha!

    Gorgeous! Would have bought it in a heart beat if it came in petite length….can’t win them all! Enjoy it, love The Purple Poppy!

      Cristina, you might still try the skirt. It is made with a top like yoga pants. I pulled the top part up and adjusted it to the spot I wanted my top to hit. It is GORGEOUS!

    Love this outfit! It looks great on you. I can’t wear taupe near my face it washes me out. I would probably do a charcoal gray top.

    • Tania Reply

      I thought about wearing gray with this because of the gray stripe. It is such a unique skirt. ❤️

  6. This is amazing on you! Perfect from head to toe. I was so distracted by it I had to scroll back up to see what handbag you had….;)

  7. It looks lovely but stay with the taupe top – I think a pink top would overwhelm the subtlety of the skirt. Great outfit – classy!

  8. The pearl necklace is unique. I love the skirt too
    and the price is perfect. I appreciate that you
    post things that are affordable for everyone.
    Thank you !

    cute outfit,however I would like it better with the shirttail out… the waist band looks unfinished. Just saying. You know I love everything you do ! 😍

    You look amazing in this outfit! I had a summer home in Falmouth Ma which is on Cape Cod and I started shopping at The Purple Poppy years ago..when she first opened it was a little shop crammed with product and I loved everything. I remember the owner at that time was Connie..she knew just what would look good on you. It is wonderful that the shop has stood the test of time..when I go down I always go in to the shop. If you ever get to Cape Cod, go in…you will really enjoy just looking around. Anyway, I thought you might like a little history. Love your blog and your make-up tutorials. Keep up the good work!

    You look Stunning ! I love everything about this outfit and the shoes are perfect😊

  13. Just fantastic! Of course, I would worry about all those layers of fabric making my thigh area look huge. ‘Cause I’m all self conscious like that. But it looks beautiful on you!
