50 IS NOT OLD | COZY AND RELAXEDI loved all the comments that you gurls left for your 12-year-old self. I think that most of them were things that we can still apply to our lives at any age. Having confidence was mentioned several times. Pay attention to your parents, grandparents, etc. because they won’t be around forever was fantastic advice. Take chances, have fun, be bold, don’t worry what others think, be kind, and to remember that “fitting in” and caving in to peer pressure will not make you happy are some of the things that I wish I had known at 12. 50 IS NOT OLD | COZY AND RELAXEDLooking over that list for my 12-year-old self was really eye-opening. I was shy, lacked confidence, and was always worried about what people thought especially the “in” crowd. Those characteristics don’t just go away as you age. You have to work on them, acknowledge them, and change them. I still consider myself shy but I am doing better. My confidence level has improved and I only care what the people I love think about me, not an “in” crowd. Being bold and adventurous is still something that I need to work on. As I have gotten older I have found that I am more cautious and not as care-free. Is that just me or is that an age thing? And, the winner of the free signed book by my sister was Kelli King!!! I sent you an email to let you know.50 IS NOT OLD | COZY AND RELAXEDToday’s top was one that I got in my last Trunk Club shipment. I loved the deep burgundy color and the tie-front which is very “hot” this season. But, once again, it was the softness that made it a keeper for me. I took it to Livingston when I traveled there for Christmas and my sister laughed because she had gotten the very same top in her shipment except her’s was a blue color. Lol! We both kept the tops for the same reason of the coziness and relaxed feel. The top is by Gibson and it is a little longer in the back for some extra coverage. The reason I like Trunk Club is because of the ease. I messaged my stylist, Elizabeth, and told her that I was going to be going on a spa trip in January and asked her to send me a few things for relaxing and a few things for wearing out to dinner. I scheduled the shipment sooner than it was scheduled so that I would have time to look at the items and send back the ones that I didn’t want. I am really excited to see what she picks out for me.
50 IS NOT OLD | COZY AND RELAXEDI love how the gold “pops” off of the burgundy color of the top. Silver might have looked just as good but I feel like the burgundy in a warm color and that gold is also. I am no expert so don’t quote me. Lol! Let’s start with the Ashton earrings. These are my favorite earrings and I wear them often. I like the filigree design and the length or drop is perfect for me. I love wearing the Vivi and the Clarissa necklaces together. They accent each other and hang perfectly when worn together. The Vivi is the spiky shorter necklace and the Clarissa is the longer one with all the dangling charms. I was thrilled to see that some of you took advantage of my special that I am running this month. Purchase 75.00 from Plunder jewelry (excluding shipping and tax) and I will send you an extra piece of jewelry. Go to plunderdesign.com/taniastephens to place an order and be sure to pick a party with my name on it.50 IS NOT OLD | COZY AND RELAXEDThese Italian leather boots are several years old. I bought these at TJ Maxx and I have loved them ever since I got them. This pair if fur lined on the inside so they are super soft and warm. Since it has been so cold outside lately I thought that the fur sounded really good. Lol!

50 IS NOT OLD | COZY AND RELAXEDThis caramel pair of jeans is by Old Navy. I have two of these jeans in the exact same style and color. That just goes to show you how much I like this color and style. Lol! Okay, it might also go to show you that I am forgetful and that I own way too much clothing but I am going with the first choice. When I went to link to these jeans I noticed that they are on sale, crazy cheap!!! The sizes might be limited so hurry and check them out before they are all sold out.

  1. Happy Saturday Tania!!! I like the burgundy and gold together….beautiful. Do the jeans fit true to size? ~Lisa~

    • Tania Reply

      Lisa, the jeans are the kind with stretch in them so I ordered up a size. These are 12 where I normally wear a 10.

  2. Great outfit! I really like the burgundy so much better than red against my skin. Have a great weekend…Best Kathy

      Me too, Kathy. I like red but it can be harsh. You just have to experiment because there are a lot of different shades of red.

  3. Oh my, this outfit is so slimming. That wouldn’t be my first thought from this style of shirt but after seeing it on you I will try one on while shopping with my daughter this afternoon! Thanks for sharing everyday. It is so appreciated.

      You are right, Mary. This style is very slimming. I have several tops in this style and I like all of them. Have fun with your daughter.

  4. Hi Tania! Please tell us how you organize your jewelry. I can’t get my act together and always wear the same pieces. You must have an idea that works?!? Happy weekend!

    • Tania Reply

      Diane, I have an organizer that I use that hangs over my door. I have all of my current jewelry on that. I have several other areas where I store my jewelry but that is for things I don’t wear as often.

  5. Just found you on Pinterest this past week & love your style & blog. Going back in the archives & looking through all your looks. So happy I found your page. I do have one question….how do you keep your jeans so smooth & taut when wearing boots? I always look like a 1940’s airplane pilot with knickers on. Thanks!

      Linda, I am so happy that you found my blog. I hope you are enjoying all of the craziness that goes on in my life. First off, are you wearing skinny jeans? That makes a huge difference. The jeans have to fit tight to your leg. Then, to help them not bunch you can pull your sock up over the pants hemline. That allows the boot to slide over the jeans easier.

      Yes, they are bakelite bracelets! You have a good eye, Carole!

  6. Hi Tania, I love this look too. The burgundy is beautiful and the gold jewelry is perfect. I decided to give Plunder a try with the Clarissa necklace, I’m excited to try it with some outfits.
