50 IS NOT OLD | ANIMAL PRINT OVER 50This new time is already starting to play havoc with my system. When I get home from work it is already dark outside. Today a friend of ours installed some LED lights under our carport. He was busy changing things out as I got ready to leave for work. I mentioned to him that the only thing that would make the lights even better was if they were on a timer so that they came on at dark and turned themselves off during the day. He laughed and said it would be that way by the time I got home. Evidently, Joe and I think alike because he had already asked Ron to do that very thing. Lol!50 IS NOT OLD | ANIMAL PRINT OVER 50As soon as I hit the door from work, I am starting to yawn. I think it is all in my mind but I can hardly keep my eyes open. Joe must be feeling the same way because he came home and fell asleep when he sat down on the couch. I did resist the couch but if I yawned once I yawned a hundred times. I was afraid that if I took a quick nap then I would be up all night long. Instead, I got up and walked around for a few minutes, then I took the dogs outside and got a breath of fresh air. By the time all of that was done the sleepiness had passed and I was good to go. My mom has her tried and true method of drinking a coke and eating a candy bar when she gets sleepy and she is traveling. That didn’t sound like the best thing for me to do at 7:00 pm at night.50 IS NOT OLD | ANIMAL PRINT OVER 50I am all about simple today. I might normally be known for being colorful but here lately I am embracing the dark side. Lol! Burgundy, browns, and today I am all about black. My sister would be so proud of me. Haha! But, I felt the need to lighten the look by wearing white jeans. The top I have on is so cute. It has chiffon pockets and a really cute back detail. Unfortunately, it is only available in XXS now. I normally wear a large in most tops but when I purchase anything from QVC the size is different. This is a small that I am wearing today. You can go to your closet and find any black top since I am sure most of you have one. Some of you might have 35 or more. Lol!

50 IS NOT OLD | ANIMAL PRINT OVER 50If any of you worry about the weight of your earrings then you need to order a pair of the leather earrings from Plunder. They weight NOTHING! These are the Nika earrings and they make quite a statement!!! My cross is the Lizzy. When my mom came to visit me for the vintage fashion show, she was looking through my jewelry seeing what she liked and wanted to order. She loved this cross but was not a fan of the cream-colored tassel that comes with it. So, she ordered the necklace and removed the tassel. I liked it that way so much that I removed my tassel also. It was an easy fix that took me about a minute. The Samson bracelet is made to look like a belt buckle. It is super cute and the best part is that it is on an elastic band so that it is easy to get on and off. BTW, right now is a great time to shop for those little items that you might be needing. Plunder has set a shipping rate of 3.95 for any order that is under 25.00. If you are only wanting a pair or two of earrings then now is the time to get that on order.50 IS NOT OLD | ANIMAL PRINT OVER 50I know that all of you have been wondering about these boots. I saw these in a shop’s window on the square in Marietta when we were going to eat lunch. I went back to the shop after lunch and asked Tony, the owner, if he had my size. I was thrilled when I saw that he had them but I was even more thrilled when I saw the price. These were only 79.00 and I thought that was a great price. I couldn’t wait to wear them for you on the blog. This was the gentleman who my sister got a little peeved with when she told him I was a blogger and she didn’t think that he was impressed enough. Lol! Anyway, he had a lot more shoes so if you are interested in this pair just give him a call at 770-429-8307. Make sure you tell him where you saw the boots. Lol! My sister wants to show him that us ladies over 40, 50, 60, or 70 still can look fashionable.

50 IS NOT OLD | ANIMAL PRINT OVER 50I love the boots against the white background of the jeans. They probably would look just as good against a dark background. White jeans are perfectly fine to wear after labor day nowadays. We are no longer held to the old fashion rules. You will be able to wear this all year long.

50 IS NOT OLD | ANIMAL PRINT OVER 50Mirror mirror on the wall. Have you ever noticed how many of the Disney movies have mirrors in them and it seems they all contain something scary? That is sometimes how I felt when I looked in the mirror and saw my reflection looking back. How does it start out so slow and end up looking like a Shar Pei dog? I am trying not to look like any kind of a dog much less a Shar Pei. Lol!!! If your mirror is something you fear then you need to message me. You can email me at fiftyisnotold@gmail.com.

    No snake print boots for me. Would imagine them slithering up my legs. Lol..But I do like the outfit.

    I love this! So perfect and so You! I can’t wait to put on my white jeans (I’ll wait for a day it isn’t snowing).

    • Tania Reply

      The snow hasn’t started here just yet. I might wear black jeans on a snowy day.

  3. How fun!! Love this on you!! And you necklace, bracelet and earrings are beautiful! You rock the styles, girl!

  4. Tania you are rockin’ those white jeans! So I guess I’m hauling my white jeans back outta the closet. Would they look silly with a backdrop of snow? I love the boots 🌟

  5. Love the black and white jeans! The boots? I love animal print, but I don’t think I could pull that off in a tall boot, perhaps an ankle boot….lol……curious to know how Joe liked them, you had mentioned in a previous post he didn’t like boots. They certainly grab your attention! 😊

      Kathy, you should have seen his mouth drop open when I walked in at work. He really liked the overall look. Lol!!!

  6. Wow!! Have never seen boots like that! They really make the outfit stand out! I’m a wimp when it comes to heels that high tho. Looking great!

    • Tania Reply

      Brenda, I already know that you are anything but a wimp. Lol!

  7. This is a great look on “you” but I would have a hard time stepping out of my comfort zone to wear the boots…and sadly, the heel is much to high for me anymore. You have so many cute clothes and I’m always so disappointed when you say it is from someplace that I can’t just walk in to so I can try it on first or it’s from a boutique that isn’t in our area. This top is really cute and I wear a lot of black but I’m not much one for ordering off line as usually things go back when I do that. The time change is hard for those of you that get home in the evening in the dark I’m sure.

    Love the look. You always look so great! I was thinking earlier today when I went in my close to get dressed, you should let us see your closet! How in the world do you organize all those clothes and accessories you have? Loving your blog.

  9. Alicia Giess Reply

    You have convinced me to wear white jeans after Labor day now – I love your outfit!!

  10. I love your choices, I don’t love the boots and would like you to do this same outfit with booties or simple shoes. I didn’t know whether to look at the earrings, the boots or the purse,😘 Keep us trying different things!

  11. Gurl you look HOT CALIENTE SPICY … lol
    I will copy this look once again🤗

  12. Love the boots! Especially at that price. They look way more expensive. Nice look.

  13. Charlcy Green Reply

    Very cute look! I have a question. What do you do w all the clothes and shoes you buy to style on the blog after you’ve shown them? Do you give some to a friend, or Garage sale or just keep everything? I would never have room in my closet for all you have to buy. I usually go thru every few months and give clothes away.

  14. Love this outfit on you! It looks great! I’m not sure I could wear the boots. You are an inspiration!

  15. Cynthia Kendrick Reply

    Although I’m not a fan of snakeskin this looks fabulous on you. You’re looking mighty sexy lady!

  16. Where’s your band? Or at least a drummer and a guy on bass. You are one hot rocker chick for a glam band. The boots are sooooo much animal print FUN and takes black and white to the tenth power. Those earrings are over the top and over the side and to the great beyond, WooooHoooo!!!

  17. FABULOUS!!!!! Beautiful! SEXY!!!! ❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️Snakeskin!!!!

    Shar Pei?!?! Bwahahahahaha ha ha!!!! You’re SO funny!!! I just love Y-O-U!!!!

    Thank you for being YOU!!!! God broke the mold when HE made you!!! Perfectly imperfect!!!


  18. Hi Tanya! Love your outfits these past few days! Wanted to let you know that I ordered the lash boost and eye cream under your name (hoping I did it right) I got a confirmation # and was wondering if you get credit for that? Just curious and hoping you do!
