ARE YOU LIVING BOLD

50 IS NOT OLD | ARE YOU LIVING BOLD | FASHION OVER 40Are you living your life bold? I bet that 80% of you said no, that you are actually living your life in the safe zone. I get it, I have been the worst over the years to not want to try something new. It didn’t matter if it was only trying a new food item I was just stuck in a rut. I tell Emersyn all the time that she doesn’t have to “eat” the item but she does need to at least “try” the item. I will tell her to take a bite and if she doesn’t like it that she can spit it out in the trashcan. She has been very good and open to this concept. But, are you?

LONG FLORAL MAXI DRESS FOR SPRING

50 IS NOT OLD | LONG FLORAL MAXI DRESS FOR SPRING | FASHION OVER 40March is almost at an end and I can’t believe how fast this year has flown by. It only seems like yesterday that I was trying to think of some resolutions or goals for myself. I have done well with some and then there are others that haven’t quite stuck with me. Of course, the great thing is that we can still make those adjustments if we just will. I sat outside on my patio yesterday afternoon and enjoyed the sunshine and warm weather. It was so windy that I was thankful that my name wasn’t Dorothy and that I didn’t live in Kansas! Lol!

HOW TO WEAR BOOTS WITH A DRESS

50 IS NOT OLD | HOW TO WEAR BOOTS WITH A DRESS | FASHION OVER 40On yesterday’s blog, I might have mentioned that I was perishing. Meaning that my husband didn’t bring lunch when he said that he was going to. Also, I might have mentioned that little tidbit on Facebook when I went “live.” Lol! In other words, I called him out for forgetting about me. Hahahahaha! He was not quite as amused as I was. I told him that was what happens when he forgets he is married to a woman who has a blog at her disposal. 😂

A LONGER SKIRT FOR SPRING

50 IS NOT OLD | A LONGER SKIRT FOR SPRING | FASHION OVER 40I am so glad that it is finally Hump Day! I woke up yesterday morning and thought to myself, “oh boy, it is Hump Day!” Then I found out it was only Tuesday and it seemed like the day took forever to end. I am not sure how I got off on my days but I hate it when that happens. The week takes forever to end when you have a “brain fart.” In case you are wondering, that means a temporary mental lapse or failure to reason correctly. Lol!!!

OLIVE IS A NEUTRAL

50 IS NOT OLD | OLIVE IS A NEUTRAL | FASHION OVER 40Spring was in the air yesterday! It was so nice to see the sun and it made me want to do something fun. I had to work this Monday, those pesky employees insist upon getting paid. Lol! So, I kept looking out my window and longing to go outside. Finally, I got to run to the bank and post office and I soon found out that looks can be deceiving. It looked warm but it was actually very chilly.

WEARING A DRESS ABOVE THE KNEE AT 50

50 IS NOT OLD | WEARING A DRESS ABOVE THE KNEE AT 50 | FASHION OVER 40Oh, my goodness, gurls! I was blown away by all over your responses on my post this past Sunday. 😘 They were so thoughtful and I even shed a few tears reading some of them. It will never get old having someone tell me that I made a difference in their life. ❤ Since this coming Sunday is Easter, I have decided to wear mostly dresses this week. I remember as a child that I couldn’t wait to get a new Easter dress. I don’t remember wearing a hat though. I must not have looked good in hats even back then. Lol!

I AM NOT ASHAMED

I love my Sunday blog post’s and I love sharing my journey as a Christian. But, it has not always been an easy task for me to do. While I always believed in the Lord and the gospel, I was not one to talk openly about my faith. I considered it private and I didn’t feel comfortable sharing.

When I started my blog I never would do a post on Sunday. I thought that I shouldn’t since it was the day of rest. I was going to be like Chick-Fil-A and be closed on Sundays. However, for a reason that I can’t explain, I felt the need to do an inspirational/religious post. You can not even begin to understand how out of my comfort zone this was. I am not a scholar, I am just trying to be closer to the Lord. I cannot quote you scriptures and I would never try to preach to anyone. Sharing my journey, my struggles, and my thoughts were never intended to be a part of this blog. In fact, I get more negative feedback about my Sunday posts than any post that I do. Sometimes those comments are sent to me by email so I never share those with you but there are times when a comment is left on the blog. I would be lying if I didn’t say that there have been times when I thought about not posting on Sundays, it would be so much easier on me. Having someone tell you that they don’t want their fashion blogger “preaching” to them can be hurtful. I will usually call my sister and cry to her and then shake it off and do it all over again the next week. Reminding myself that the devil will use every tactic possible to keep anyone from sharing the Lord’s work is what keeps me going. Today’s devotional was on Luke 9 and even though it was not about this verse, this is what spoke to me.

Luke 9:26

Whoever is ashamed of me and my words, the Son of Man will be ashamed of them when he comes in his glory and in the glory of the Father and of the holy angels.

I am not ashamed of the Lord! I can only pray that He is not ashamed of me and that when my time comes to be before Him that He will have mercy on me.

So, for those who love fashion and only want to see clothing, then check out my blog Monday through Saturday. And for those who are also struggling with your journey with the Lord and want some inspiration and companionship then continue to come back each Sunday. The devil is just going to have to get over it because I am not quitting. I AM NOT ASHAMED!

Have A Blessed Sunday!

USING A PONCHO AS A COVERUP

50 IS NOT OLD | USING A PONCHO AS A COVERUP | FASHION OVER 40The sun is shining and the birds are chirping but dang, it is still cold as crap outside. I can’t wait to see spring finally hit and this place thaw out from this past winter. I now understand why people go south for the winter! I am just so sick of the cold weather that this morning I have been looking for someplace warmer. I am not sure if I am thinking about a real move or if I am just talking about someplace to escape to when the winter blahs has got me down.

SUMMER ROMANTIC LOOK

50 IS NOT OLD | SUMMER ROMANTIC LOOK | FASHION OVER 40It was interesting today at work for a change. When I got to work there wasn’t a single parking spot available and I ended up parking next to the gate that goes around to the back lot. I just said a quick “thank you, Lord” and went inside to get to work. But, before I got to the front door a man with a huge movie camera on his shoulder came outside and was walking around. Let me just say that having a movie camera inside of our small lumber store is not an everyday occurrence.

LOOKING PUT TOGETHER WHILE LOUNGING

50 IS NOT OLD | LOOKING PUT TOGETHER WHILE LOUNGING | FASHION OVER 40Some of you might have been fast enough yesterday to see that I published a post on shapewear. That was not supposed to have been published yet. I hadn’t finished the post. I wasn’t happy with the pictures because the white was not the best color option to show details. The only choice that could have been worse would have been black. Lol! And, I had some codes also that hadn’t yet been entered. I went it to delay the publishment date but I must not have hit the update button. 😱
