50 IS NOT OLD | A GRAPHIC SWEATERMy granddaughter kept me entertained over the weekend. Little Miss Emersyn came to visit and there is never a dull moment when that happens. We polished her toenails the first thing when she got here. She picked out a teal color and then wanted a metallic pink accent of polka dots. What Em wants, Em gets. Lol! After that we were on to playing with the Barbie Dream House. This is a huge house that she got for Christmas last year but she leaves it at my house. The only problem is that she has taken almost all of her Barbies to HER house. All she had to play with was Ken. Ken got dressed, undressed, swam in the “pool” went for a ride in the convertible, and went camping. Ken was tired!!!50 IS NOT OLD | A GRAPHIC SWEATERI suggested that I turn on the television and we could watch a movie. Her sleeping bag was still here that she got this Christmas so I got that out and laid it on the couch. I found the matching pillow and she got all snuggly. I laid down on the other end of the couch and pulled a nice throw over me. She watched TV for about 10 minutes and then said, “hey, you are just trying to go to sleep aren’t you, NeeNee?” Lol! Why, yes, I was. The little stinker figured me out and there was no napping for me. Haha! 50 IS NOT OLD | A GRAPHIC SWEATERI just love this graphic sweater that I bought at Talbots. It reminds me of sitting at a little street cafe in Paris, not that I have ever been, but what I would imagine it to be like. This is a cross between a t-shirt and a sweatshirt. Not too casual but also not too dressy. It is the baby bear of shirts, it is just right. Lol! There are days that I just don’t feel like really dressing up and this is a good compromise for me. I feel comfortable but I also feel like I could go anywhere without having to change clothes.

50 IS NOT OLD | A GRAPHIC SWEATERIt is hard to see but the shirt has the faintest amount of turquoise in the graphic. So, I chose to accessorize with blue jewelry. The filigree earrings are called the Aspen. These are a light blue that has been antiqued, kind of like me. Lol! They are lightweight and have a 2″ drop. The Ada necklace is one of the shorter necklaces that I really like. It has a bohemian or gypsy feel to it with the leather and copper style. The copper plate is stamped with the saying, “Bless Your ❤️” and all of us southern girls use that term freely. Lol! Since the Ada had the boho feel I thought I would add the Corey bracelet. It has several different strands in this bracelet of different materials and I love the pop of color with the mustard colored tassel. Plunder is giving away a free gift with every Plunder purchase from now until February 14th.I am still running my special when you order at least 75.00 (excluding taxes and shipping) you will get ONE additional piece of jewelry from me. But, if you order at least 125.00 (excluding taxes and shipping) then you will get TWO items from me! Several of you have asked about buying more jewelry so for every additional 50.00 you spend after 125.00 I will add another piece of jewelry. January is the month to make your purchases!!! 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 | A GRAPHIC SWEATERThis is one of those times when my purse and my pants are almost the exact same color. My handbag is by Dagne Dover and it was one that I won from R+F. I don’t know if this would have been one that I would have chosen if I had been shopping. It isn’t flashy and there aren’t any unique details that stand out when you look at it. BUT, I find myself carrying this a lot for those very reasons. It goes with almost EVERYTHING! I guess that goes to show you what I know. Lol! This has lots of pockets for all of your accessories and a 13″ laptop can even fit in it! This is much nicer looking than the old briefcases I have seen some people carry.50 IS NOT OLD | A GRAPHIC SWEATERI love this color for pants. I don’t know if I would call it a taupe, mushroom, or just brownish but I really like it. It is a perfect neutral and this pair has a brushed suede feel to them. I bought this pair a couple of years ago from Old Navy. They are Rockstar jeans but they are no longer available in this color. You should know that just because this pair is no longer available it wouldn’t stop me. I scoured online and found several that I know you will like. One pair from Ann Taylor looks exactly like this pair. Go figure!!!

50 IS NOT OLD | A GRAPHIC SWEATEROn Saturday’s post I asked for questions or concerns that you might have that would keep you from becoming my business partner in Rodan + Fields. I have to admit that I was shocked by what seemed the biggest concern for several of you. It was that you didn’t want to bother your friends. My answer to that is, “Then DON’T!” In fact, it should really say, PLEASE don’t!!! If I told you that I went to a great Mexican restaurant and that I thought you might like it, would that bother you? If I said that I love my HUGE mascara by Stila and that you can buy it from Ulta, would that bother you? Then why would you think that if you told your friend that you were using the #1 Premium Skincare in the US and you absolutely LOVED it, why would that bother them? I have several calls scheduled for today and I would like to pencil you in for tomorrow. Email me and we will schedule that. The winner of Saturday’s mini eyecream is Angela! I will get that in the mail to you today. This is my unique story. Actual earnings vary significantly: no income is guaranteed. For information regarding typical results, search Rodan + Fields IDS.

      Thanks, Kathy! I love the Bless Your Heart necklace. It is such a fun piece!

    Tania this is such a refreshing outfit. When I saw it this morning I wanted to wear pink today! I also play lots of pretend play with my four year old granddaughter. So much fun but exhausting. They are such a blessing.

    • Tania Reply

      Yes! You are right, Monica. They are a ball of energy and so much fun but I usually need a nap afterward. Lol!

  3. Love the look! So comfy, stylish and fun! But then you always look fabulous!!! But no sleeping on the job NeeNee!❤️

    • Tania Reply

      There certainly is no sleeping on the job when she is around. Lol! A gurl can dream, can’t she?

  4. I really like the color of the pants. You inspired me to go to Old Navy so I got a pair of rockstar jeans last week! Keep the ideas coming!! The graphic T shirt is adorble. It does remind one of Paris. I LOVE Paris. I have been there twice, and no I am not rich money wise!! (my daughter works for an airline). Best city in the world in my book! They say the French hate Americans, not true. If you are polite in asking directions they go out of their way to be helpful. But, I digress lol…Have a blessed week, Tania!!

      I would love to visit Paris one day! I have heard so many great things about the city!!!

  5. Love this outfit, Tania! Normally I love color. I also love Paris and love that top. Looking for it now!

    Perfect weekend outfit. Love the shirt. I have two of those comfy “just right” graphic sweatshirts/sweaters, but they are Christmas print! I really need to find one I can wear anytime! Have a good week!

  8. Hi Tania. Love the casual look….. you always look great! I love the time i spend with my grandsons because one day they will be too busy for time with grandma… tho I am a young hip grandma I think..ha! I’m sure a fun time with Em but yes she will wear you out! I must find me a sweatshirt like that.. too cute and that would be a new color for me! I’m excited to give R+F a try very soon! Have a blessed day! Carla

  9. Fun, fun, fun! Love this look! Great way to start the week. Thank you for taking the time to answer all those questions we had about R+F! Very helpful. Have a great day!

    I too lice graphic sweaters and bought one last tear w emperor penguins kissing on ut. Ive worn it so many times! I love yours w the cute poodles on it! Those booties are also so nice! You are right about R& F and that its easy to just tell people what you like about it!

  11. You’re killing me with this top, Tania! I remember when Talbot’s offered this top and I wanted it soooo bad but waited a bit too late before finally making up my mind and it was sold out. Oh well. You’re styling it so cute today! That’s the perfect color of pants to go with the top! I guess it’s like they say, ‘The early bird catches the worm’, or in this case, ‘The early worm catches the poodle.’ lol You and Miss Emersyn have a great week!

    • Good Lord, the early WORM can hardly catch a poodle! I MEANT to say, ‘The early BIRD catches the poodle.’

  12. Very cute casual outfit….love the bag that goes with just about everything (I hate changing purses all the time)!
