50 IS NOT OLD | A FAUX FUR COLLAR AS AN ACCESSORYI really appreciate all the kind comments that you all left me yesterday about Beckley. It was a sad day that was filled with plenty of tears. I am fine as long as someone doesn’t mention it to me. If they say anything then the tears start up again. It was that way reading all the comments too. I told someone that he was a good dog and he deserved a few tears in his honor. Keeping busy was on my agenda for the day. I figured if I was busy that I wouldn’t have time to fret and worry. 50 IS NOT OLD | A FAUX FUR COLLAR AS AN ACCESSORYI hadn’t been at work very long when I heard my phone buzz. I am trying to ignore the cellphone and concentrate on one task at a time but I decided to see what it was and it was a good thing. It was my hairdresser asking me where I was. Apparently, I must have had a hair appointment today. Lol! I apologized for being late and hurried out the door. As soon as I left work this afternoon, Ashleigh wanted to run to the store for a few things. She is flying back to Alaska tomorrow and she wanted to pick up a few items. Here we go on another road trip. This time we will be driving to Nashville to put her on the airplane heading home. Mine is a 6-hour drive but poor Ashleigh has the drive plus the really long travel time home. She is probably ready to get home since it has been so boring here. All of her friends have moved off and she had no one to go anywhere with. She will be dragging her tracks by the time she reaches Alaska and I will be equally as tired by the time we get back to Virginia.50 IS NOT OLD | A FAUX FUR COLLAR AS AN ACCESSORYHow do you like my cardigan with the fur collar? Actually, this is a Leith Shawl Collar Cardigan that I bought from my first Trunk Club shipment. Here is where I wore this cardigan last time. You might notice that the last time I wore the cardigan that it didn’t have a fur collar. I bought the fur collar last year at Target. You use the collar like you would a scarf. You can add it to a cardigan, sweater, or a top to change the look.

50 IS NOT OLD | A FAUX FUR COLLAR AS AN ACCESSORYThe Gabbie necklace looks great with this mustard colored top. The multi-colored stones are just the right hues for this top. The dark brown tassel brings out the dark color of the fur scarf. I also added the Rosa bracelet and the Clementine bracelet. The Clementine has a tassel that matches the necklace and a monogram charm. Everyone who places an order of over 75.00 (not including taxes and shipping) will receive a free piece of jewelry from me.

I love the lighter color. The light tan trim is perfect with the light tan color of the purse.

50 IS NOT OLD | A FAUX FUR COLLAR AS AN ACCESSORYEven though these pants look black they are a dark chocolate brown. These are a velvet pair by Kut From The Kloth. I only have two pairs of pants from this company but I love both of them. They fit perfectly and are true to size. I have washed them multiple times and they do great.

      It was too cold and cloudy. He didn’t like the idea of putting her in the plane in those conditions.

    The faux fur accessories have come a long way since I got a collar a few years back. They look much more authentic. Love the look, and I feel you about your dog. Ours is 16 and I’m concerned every day! But Happy New Year to you and yours!

    I love the fur collar and have one in black. It is bitterly cold here today again and I am headed to a ladies luncheon so think I’ll wear mine too. I also have some velvet pants. Great idea! I know you will be sad when your daughter goes home so am glad you have the R & F event to look forward to! Your hair looks adorable by the way and your outfit and Jewelry are too cute!

    Cute look, Tania! We put our daughter on a plane back to Kuwait yesterday so I’m sharing the daughter-send-off feelings with you. I keep reminding myself that 5 months will fly by! Praying for both girls’ trips.

      Laura, I can’t imagine having to put her on a plane to Kuwait! That has to be hard. I would love to talk my daughter into moving back to the east coast. I might make that my New Year’s resolution.

    Hi there! I just discovered you on Pinterest about a month ago. The more I see and read from you, the more I think we are kindred spirits!!! You inspire me with your clothing! You always add that little extra punch I’m looking for, and NO, 50 is not old! Neither is 55! Keep doing what you are doing, and I’ll keep watching you and your cute self! Thanks for the inspiration!

      Awww, thanks, Ruth Ellen. I think we are all alike in some way if we just take the time to get to know each other.

  11. I agree with Lisa about trying the Leopard boots with this look. This is my first “favorite” outfit of 2018 as is. I should track how many I tell you are “the bestest” this year. You kept me busy typing and replying in 2017. LOL!

    • Tania Reply

      Lol!!! I always look forward to reading your comments. I can’t wait to see what you have in store for me in 2018.

  12. I like the sweater. I think it is rather flattering and I absolutely love you style. At least your daughter had time to spend with Beckley. He is thanking you for all the love, cuddles and rubs that you gave him..
