50 IS NOT OLD | A CLASSIC COMBINATIONI am having a hard time concentrating right now. I am packing to get ready to leave and head out to Panama City Beach, Florida early Thursday morning. By the time most of you read this I will already be on the road. It is not looking like the best weather for us again this year but since it is supposed to rain here in Virginia this weekend also, we figured we might as well enjoy the rain in Florida. I know from past trips to the beach that it can say that it is going to rain all day and either it doesn’t rain at all or it is only spotty. Don’t bust my bubble and tell me that I am being “Pollyanna.”50 IS NOT OLD | A CLASSIC COMBINATIONI do like country music but it has been a while since I have really listened to much radio at all. I live approximately 3 minutes from work so I don’t listen to music in the car. When I come home from work I am usually working on the blog so I don’t turn on music at the house either. However, tonight I am listening to a playlist that some people have gotten together of the artists that will be in concert. I am finally starting to get a little excited. I hope that this turns out even half as much fun as the Eclipse party we just had. That would make it worth the 12-hour drive. Yes, we have to drive even though Joe swore we weren’t going to drive anywhere again. Unfortunately, the weather didn’t cooperate for him to be able to fly. Ask me if I am sad….. Lol!50 IS NOT OLD | A CLASSIC COMBINATIONSo, tonight’s post might be short but if you have been following me very long then you know that even though I say that it probably won’t turn out that way. I can’t help it if I get talking and I can’t shut up. Haha! I have had this dress since earlier this year when I went to Rosemary Beach in Florida back in April. We went shopping at Target for something and I ended up with this dress. It is by Victoria Beckham and I thought it was too cute. I was surprised to see that line at Target, it is extremely well made and very nice. I went online just now and I don’t see the line available, it must have just been a short time thing. I love the look of black and white. It is so classic and I think it is very elegant. I could see wearing this dress to almost anything. I love the leather applique, those are definitely the unique details.

50 IS NOT OLD | A CLASSIC COMBINATIONI have on just a simple pair of pearl earrings. Well, maybe not that simple since they have a huge rhinestone attached to them. These are called the Priscilla and they have a necklace that matches them called the Paris. The dark gray bling bracelet is the Ezra. You will see me wear this a lot with the Halloween season coming soon. The other bracelet is the Ophelia. It is on an elastic band so it is easy to get on and off.50 IS NOT OLD | A CLASSIC COMBINATIONThe Evie bracelet is what I call me ladybug bracelet. It is little mounds of seed pearls. That sounds wonderful doesn’t it????50 IS NOT OLD | A CLASSIC COMBINATIONI LOVE these shoes!!! This is a pair by GILI that I got at the overstock store. I think this pair is elegant and a little bit on the sexy side. What do you think? Here is the link for the shoes on QVC.50 IS NOT OLD | A CLASSIC COMBINATIONToday is the last day of the month and that means the last day to get a FREE sunless tanner AND a piece of Plunder jewelry from me when you sign up as a new Preferred Customer with the purchase of a regimen. Also, the profits that I am making off of these sales this week are going to be donated to the Hurricane Harvey fund in Texas.

    I love the black and white graphic style of that dress. Bold flowers yet not Grandma’s chintz. And look at those Hubba-Hubba shoes. Va-Va-Voom! Thanks for your commitment to bring us daily inspiration.

  16. Although the dress is eye catching, it is the way you styled it that makes it totally a great look, especially with the shoes! They are now one of my favorites. Enjoy your trip and will pray for traveling mercies,
