50 IS NOT OLD | SWEATSHIRT WITH STYLEThe weekend is here and I am ready to kick back and relax. Well, actually I might have started that process a little early since I played hooky from work yesterday. It snowed just a tiny bit but I thought, “what the heck? I don’t have anything that I HAVE to do,” so I called in and said, “call me if you need me.” After that, I went and put on some lounging pants and my thick furry shoes and played on the computer all day. I did manage to clean the kitchen up a bit but other, than that I was pretty useless. Lol! What do you do when you don’t go out to work every day?50 IS NOT OLD | SWEATSHIRT WITH STYLEI am pretty sure there must be a learning curve to this whole stay at home thing. My rear is sore and my legs are falling asleep from sitting in my chair so long. I think that after I got caught up in doing all of the things that I have been putting off that I might start on cleaning, clearing, rearranging, and redecorating my house. If I start now on my “to do” list for the computer then maybe I might be ready to start on my house by May. Lol! Don’t even get me started on the outside of the house. I see pictures of these gorgeous kitchens on Facebook and then I look at my kitchen table which is covered with all of my books, journals, appointment books, and my laptop. Not a picture that I really want to put on Facebook. 50 IS NOT OLD | SWEATSHIRT WITH STYLEWhoops, looks like I forgot to also mention the pita chip bag. Lol! Joe can’t even sit down to eat until I move some of my “stuff” for him to sit down. Hahaha!
50 IS NOT OLD | SWEATSHIRT WITH STYLEFirst off, this is not purple so I have no idea why my pictures tend to go to that hue. It is a blue with maybe a hint of purple but not very much. Also, I do have an undergarment on under the shirt for those who might be worried about their bra showing. I am pretty sure that I do not have to tell you what the unique detail is on this sweatshirt. I have noticed that I have been drawn to sweatshirts and casual style clothing lately. I don’t know if it is a phase or if I am in training for retirement. Lol! There is a little boutique in a neighboring town that I occasionally purchase things from. I have been trying not to buy things from stores that you can’t buy from but she has a website so I knew that you would all be able to order from her. I bought this top and I wore it when I was in Georgia last weekend but the pictures were too dark to show so I decided to wear it again. BUT, in the meantime….the top sold out. I swear, I can’t win for losing. So for all of you gurls who think that just because you like wearing a sweatshirt or being comfortable that you can’t still look nice and fashionable, think again.

50 IS NOT OLD | SWEATSHIRT WITH STYLEYou can tell that I am starting to think about spring by my jewelry selection today. These colors are brighter and happier than some of the colors that I have been wearing lately. The Mitali necklace is so fun and colorful and I am sure that you will find lots of items that you will be able to wear with this. I chose to add the Mandy earrings to match the necklace. I liked the pop of yellow against the faded navy sweatshirt. And for a bracelet, I went with the magnetic, boho-inspired, Corey. You can see all the beautiful colors and the mustard colored tassel in this picture. Are there any of you who like pearls??? Then you are going to LOVE this months Plunder PosseThis is 47 inches long so you can choose to wear it as a longer style necklace. Or you can choose to tie the ribbon and make the necklace as short as you need. The pearl drop earrings also come with this set.The Plunder Posse is a subscription service that is 25.00 monthly. It is free to join and there is no penalty for canceling. Each month (on the date of your first order) they will send you that current months Posse. If you see the jewelry but you do not wish to purchase that months look then you simply cancel and then re-enroll the next time you see a set that you like. BUT, before you sign up under me, Plunder is looking for new stylists and they are offering you a deal that is very hard to refuse. Join Plunder in February and receive an extra 12 pieces of jewelry!!! Oh, My Goodness! That is truly an amazing deal! The cost to become a stylist is 99.00 and you simply click here to join.
50 IS NOT OLD | SWEATSHIRT WITH STYLEI groaned when I saw these pictures. You all were not fans of my wine boots the last time I wore them and here I am wearing the caramel ones in basically the same look. The pants and boots are not the same color but they are in the same color family. That is why I think they work but you might have a different opinion. Anyway, I wore these Isaac Mizrahi suede boots and no one’s eyes were injured in the process. Lol!50 IS NOT OLD | SWEATSHIRT WITH STYLEI chose to wear the camel colored Rockstar jeans from Old Navy for a couple of reasons. One, they are comfortable. Two, blue and browns are a color combination that I like. Three, I thought it would show the sweatshirt better. I have put this on with denim jeans and it looks great but you can’t see the hemline of the sweatshirt as well. Since I wanted you to be able to see how the shirt was made (before I knew that they were sold out) I picked a contrasting color. 50 IS NOT OLD | SWEATSHIRT WITH STYLESo how are you spending your Saturday? I have a few phone calls scheduled for later today to talk to some ladies about Rodan + Fields but I do have a couple hours free if anyone wants to message me and set up a time we can talk. I love talking with you ladies, it is so much fun to get to know you. Texting and messaging is nice but I love it when I can hear your voice. If I am bored I might start using messenger on FaceBook and “facetime” with you. You better put your makeup on. I may be calling. Lol!

Also, please comment below a story or experience you or someone you know has had concerning heart disease. Your story might save someone’s life. I will give away this beautiful heart bracelet from Plunder on Monday to someone who comments.50 IS NOT OLD | NATIONAL WEAR RED DAY

    Christmas this year was wonderful until that evening when my sweet Daddy had a heart attack. He was flown by helicopter to a neighboring city (Wichita Falls, Tx). It scared all of us. He had 3 out of 4 vessels with major blockages. We were able to get there just before he went into surgery for a triple bypass. My brother, stepmother and I were able to rotate staying with him. Several days later, he suddenly began to decline again and I was so glad we were with him. He’s now at home (PTL … he hates being the hospital!) and is doing cardiac rehab. I’m so thankful for all of his dr’s, nurses, the flight crew. I’m also soooooo thankful that I didn’t lose my Daddy! I was definitely wearing red yesterday! Go to the hospital immediately if you think something is wrong!!! The BEST possible outcome is that it wasn’t a heart attack! ❤️❤️❤️

  2. Yes, heart disease is something that has occurred in my lineage. I never met either of my grandpas as they had heart attacks before I was born. My dad had a heart attack once, but survived for quite a while. I think diet is very important. In the old days people weren’t thinking about nutrition, fats, -bad fats that is. I think it is never too late to take control of your health, eat smart, try and exercise.

  3. I absolutely love your blog and read it daily. Am just learning about the benefit to the blogger if I comment. I have a heart story. A 35 year old lady I know was complaining of chest discomfort and went to the ER. They diagnosed her with indigestion and sent her home. Pain happened again. She wasn’t going to go in a second time but did because she just had a feeling something was not right. Good thing she did as she had just caught blockages that were going to cause a heart attack. Women do not always have the typical symptoms of a heart attack and younger women can have heart attacks too. Listen to your body and get help quickly. Your family thanks you.

  4. My mother had a heart attack when she was 63. She was overweight and had high blood pressure but we never even thought this would happen. It presented as strong pain that felt like bad indigestion. Due to great medical care and a new drug that helps rebuild heart muscle, she survived. She bought Curves memberships for both me and my sister so we would take care of ourselves. She then needed a valve replacement operation a few years later. I’m amazed at what doctors can do. She’s now 84. Thanks for asking for our comments. Love your blog!

  5. Keeping your cholesterol and blood pressure in line is important but stress can be the factor that sends you to the ER. I know because I have survived 2 heart attacks, the first one at 52. Please make lifestyle changes before your body does it for you. So glad that God is not through with me yet! 🙂

  6. We lost my oldest brother several years ago to heart problems. First, he had a heart attack. Then, a heart transplant. The transplant gave us an additional 7 years with him. God’s perfect number. So thankful for the extra time!
    This is the perfect weekend outfit for me. I love the carmel booties with pants! This combo works better for me, because the darkest color is at your feet. Happy weekend!

  7. Oh my heart disease….. It turned my life upside down 11 years ago. My 45 year old husband (my high school sweetheart) had a massive heart attack and passed away in front of my 2 young sons and I while in the middle of no where on a big lake in Kentucky, with no help around for miles. Needless to say it was devastating. He was not over weight and was not on any medications and was very active. He did smoke however and heart disease ran in his family. My son’s are now in their 20’s, they do not smoke (thank goodness!) and they eat very healthy, one is a vegetarian, and they both lead very active lifestyles. Because their Father died with heart disease so young, they are very aware of the consequences of not taking care of yourself and genetics do play a role. Hold your loved ones close and tell them you love them every day!

    Thank you Tania, I love your blog!

  8. I am a fan of the color caramel/camel/tan. I do not like this sweatshirt. It’s too fussy.

  9. Heart disease runs in my family. My dad passed away when I was 18 after triple bypass surgery and I was diagnosed with heart disease about 10 years ago. I stay active, eat healthy and have lost weight. I know the importance of regular check ups and keeping blood pressure and cholesterol in check. Because heart disease is the #1 killer of women, I appreciate you bring attention to this serious heath concern! Have a great weekend!💕

  10. Wishing I had the sweatshirt right now- so cute! As a nurse, my words of encouragement- listen to your body. Women don’t always have classic symptoms- often it’s nausea& just not feeling right. With a heart attack, time is muscle- the faster it’s treated, the better the outcome for the heart. Don’t be embarrassed or try to “wait it out”- have it checked out!

  11. Cute sweatshirt. It’s funny that we want a day off from work but when we get it we are not sure what to do with it. I will be spending my Saturday catching up on laundry and dishes. If I feel up to it, maybe preppping some snacks for the big game tomorrow night (go Pats!). And finally recouping from surgery.

  12. I love the lighter brighter jewelry choices today! I too am thinking spring in very cold weather!! Love your casual outfit. I haven’t played hooked in two years but when I do I usually shop!!!!!! Best…. Kathy

  13. Do not fret over your kitchen table or counters. We have all have clutter, some days more than others.
    Those beautiful kitchens you see in pictures were staged to look amazing for the sake of the picture.
    Normal homes that are lived in and loved can be messy. Bet your table looks great by the time meal time arrives.

    I am new to your blog but I just wanted you to know that I am enjoying it very much! i am recently retired from years of nursing and oddly enough, just a little unsettled sitting at home doing nothing. I am using this time to catch up on some much needed exercise ( heart disease runs in my family, so wear red is a wonderful reminder for me ) and updating my wardrobe! I would love to know how you got started blogging and doing what you do….please share!

  15. Seen i have ben daily reading your website i have been updated my wardrobe with your suggestions.
    PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE try and post clothing that i can order. I have purchased items from Old Navy.
    Thanks for all your effort and time.
    Enjoy your weekend!

  16. I love this outfit! The sweatshirt is adorable, the pants and booties ramp it up to look more than casual. The color combination is a win. You look great! Hope to see more looks like this.

  17. My heart journey started 22 years ago. At 49 I started getting tired and seemed to put on a lot of extra weight. One day I was all dressed to go to the mall with the family and as I got out of the car I just couldn’t do it. Went home made an appointment with Doctor. That was the start of my journey with heart failure. My Doctor said always listen to your body. That sounds like something everyone should do.

  18. I take my health for granted. In my late 30s I had high blood pressure, but I was not given medication. I lost a few pounds and the blood pressure normalized. By not caring for myself I continued work, dating and stressing myself unnecessarily. I started getting blasting headaches and self medicated with ibuprophen and diet coke. People at work were noticing my irritability, and I was very “on edge” and “stressed out”. One morning driving to work my intense headache started. Then I lost vision in my left eye and had a howling sound in my ears. ( I don’t know how I made it to work!) At work a Dr. met me in my office to check me out (I was a Department Administrator at a Hospital). My blood pressure was off the charts! Immediately, I was taken to the Emergency Room and worked up for a Heart Attack, Stroke, Aneurysm or Possible Brain Tumor. I felt like I was having an “out-of-body” experience.
    I was admitted to the hospital for a couple of days. The blood pressure stabilized and I began taking medications. I was lucky. Please Ladies learn from my experience, and do not take your health for granted. Love yourself, listen to your body. Keep a good healthy lifestyle. Make sure you practice spirituality, and get into psychotherapy if you need help navigating your life. LIVE LIFE TO THE FULLEST !! LIFE IS A PRECIOUS GIFT !! HAVE FUN & ENJOY EVERYDAY !! AND SHARE YOUR LOVE. LOVE, LOVE, LOVE. GOD IS GREAT!!!!

  19. I absolutely LOVE reading your blog…its part of my daily routine. You said the boutique that glad your sweatshirt has a website….would you wanna share the name…if they’ve got sweatshirts THIS cute…..I could only imagine what else might be adorable to shop for. Thanks!!!!

  20. Love that you are not afraid of color and that you accessorize, accessorize, accessorize. Many in my family struggle with cholesterol, high blood pressure, and heart issues. My NewYear’s resolution was to get a complete physical every year. I have one scheduled for next week.

  21. My sister has just been admitted to the hospital as of yesterday due to heart problems. Many visits to doctors due to shortness of breath and just feeling poorly. Finally an ultrasound of her heart and blood work put her in the hospital with fluid around the heart, so far with hospital diuretics at least 10 lbs yes you read it right has come out of her. More test to be done. Please ladies if you don’t feel well keep insisting on test.

    I guess I’m one of few that don’t mind if I can’t get your EXACT article of clothing! I look at your blog as a guideline not a specific shopping list. Thank you for the fun antedotes of your life!

  23. I am new to your blog, but love all of your style inspirations and your up lifting and thought provoking Sunday messages. I wore red on Friday in honor of heart health and also to support my youngest nephew as he played in his final home basketball game. Heart disease is no stranger to my family as my dad has had a heart attack. My mom and maternal grandmother had valve replacement. I’m currently working with a doctor and nutritionist to lower my cholesterol and weight. I look forward each morning to your post.
