50 IS NOT OLD | BODY HUGGING SKIRT | FASHION OVER 40Gurl’s, I really want to make sure all of you are taking care of your health this winter. I have seen way too much sickness that is going on this year. I don’t have any numbers to say that it has been worse than normal but it sure seems like the flu season is taking a toll on everyone. This is on my mind because I spent the day on Wednesday driving with Joe to see a great friend of ours who is in ICU in the hospital. When we were talking to him today he said that he had only been sick two days before he went to the doctor.50 IS NOT OLD | BODY HUGGING SKIRT | FASHION OVER 40This man is a big man. I mean like 6’4″ or taller and exactly what would come to your mind if I said a mountain man. He let this sickness get to the point that he was on death’s door before he even went to the doctor. I have heard so very many people who said that they never ran a fever so they did not think that they were sick. If you feel sick, go to the doctor and get checked out. All it will cost you is a doctor’s visit but if you wait then it could cost you so much more. I can’t wait until our friend is better and comes home so we can kick the tar out of him for scaring us to death. He wouldn’t expect any less. Lol! 50 IS NOT OLD | BODY HUGGING SKIRT | FASHION OVER 40I wanted to show you again how just changing a few things can change the entire look of an outfit. I wore this outfit to church a couple of weeks ago and then I came home and took my pictures. I wore the beautiful beige/tan cashmere cocoon cardigan that was from Isaac Mizrahi. I love the feel of cashmere and I am always trying to pick up one or two pieces when I find it on sale. It is such a nice material and it makes you feel special when you wear it. If you don’t think that you can afford to buy cashmere in the stores then try eBay. I have bought lots of nice things over the years from eBay. Just make sure you check the ratings, the shipping rates, and read really thoroughly. I have gotten things that I didn’t want because I read what I wanted it to say instead of what it really said.

50 IS NOT OLD | BODY HUGGING SKIRT | FASHION OVER 40No earrings and no necklace! WHAT??? Instead, I just added a printed lightweight infinity scarf. This was one that I picked up from Cato Fashions earlier this Fall. I chose this because it is light and also because it has the cranberry color throughout the print. I added a couple of bracelets and that was it. Lol! The leather and disc bracelet is the Scarlett and the leopard print cuff bracelet is the Mae. Both of these bracelets are adjustable.50 IS NOT OLD | BODY HUGGING SKIRT | FASHION OVER 40This sweater knit skirt is one that I bought the first of the season at Cato Fashions. I love this skirt and the way it fits. It is the perfect fit and it hugs your body. This skirt makes me look bootylicious. Lol!!! I hope no one spits their coffee out over that statement. Lol!

50 IS NOT OLD | BODY HUGGING SKIRT | FASHION OVER 40Once I came home from church I slipped into a more comfortable outfit. I already posted this outfit on the blog last week, you can go here to read about it. I changed out the skirt for a pair of jeans and the scarf for some jewelry. I changed the knee boots for some ankle boots and I have gone from dressy to casual. 50 IS NOT OLD | BODY HUGGING SKIRT | FASHION OVER 40These leather knee boots are 3 or 4 years old and they are probably still my favorite pair of boots. They have a fur lining and I just feel like I am being wrapped in a warm blanket when I put them on. I bought this pair ar TJ Maxx and all I can remember about them is that they were made in Italy. There is no markings or brand on the boots so I can’t even try to look them up. This pair zips up the back which I like. I can’t stand to buy boots that pull on. I can get them on but getting them off is a whole different story. Also, if you wear pull on boots it is harder to put them on over your pants without them looking like they are bunched at the top. I have seen some people use mitten clips to hold the pants down. They turn your pants into stirrup pants but it looks like the clips would hurt to walk on.


I hope all of you take really good care of yourselves and your loved ones for the remainder of this hateful flu season. Spring is right around the corner. I am going to be doing a week of white next week in celebration of the upcoming season.

    Love! love ! your outfit Tania that colour combo is so lovely and really suits you yes I feel the flu season seems to be very bad this year in Ireland too vitamin c great for the immune system but as you said don’t leave it too long to go to the doctor I think men are especially bad at going to the doctor’s 😨

  2. Tania your so right ! My daughter missed 3 weeks of school because of the flu and its aftermath. Just as i get her better now I have a sinus infection. I went to the dr right away. But i also Thought i cud go back to work but it hasnt gone well every time I go. Sorry a bit of a rant there. I love this color combo these outfits r great for work too

      Nicki, I am glad that your daughter is better now. It is always a tough call about going to work or not.

  3. You look beautiful!! I love these colors on you. The scarf just ties it all together.
    I hope your friend is back to himself soon… kicking the tar out of him seems appropriate!!! Lol

  4. 2 Great looks and would be great to keep in mind for traveling too! going from day to night etc. I travel for work periodically and this would come in handy and keep packing to a minimum.

  5. Thank you for the mitten clip tip (say that fast 50 times)! I will try it! Love the outfit and the sweater! Best…Kathy

      Jennifer, I switched to a different ad company. I noticed who other bloggers were using and I went with the same company. It is in the learning process right now.

      • Thanks for your response Tania . I love your blog but I do find the ads distracting. Have a great day!

  7. Love this outfit and the colors….I wear a lot of scarves this time of year and miss them in the summer. I bought pant clips off of Amazon and I have to position them just right so that the clip doesn’t rub my ankle when I walk. I like how you are showing us how to transition from dressy to casual. My hubby is down with this cold/flu stuff right now and when I had it it hung on for 2 weeks…we really need warm sunshine and higher temps to get rid of all the germs around.

      The clip is what I worried about, Sandy. I hope your hubby gets better soon and that you don’t get it.

      • Thank you Tania… I had it mid February and took me two weeks to get over it and get my energy back. Can’t grt over the cough. Not fun at all

    Cute outfit! I love throwing on an infinity scarf to dress up the look!

    I love that sweater. It looks so comfy and cozy. Looking forward to week of white! Have a wonderful weekend!

      I love wearing white which is weird since I used to never wear white.

    As usual, NICE outfits, both. You look so warm and cosy in the skirt outfit, especially! I get so much great inspiration from your outfits – keep up the great work!

  11. Love both of these outfits, great way to show versatility! We’re on the mend from all the sickness. Out of 3 of us, 2 have had colds, 2 have had flu and 1 had bronchitis (my husband who ended up in ER because he wouldn’t go to the Dr.! Ugh!). My 12 yr old daughter skated through with nothing, I want to know what her magic powers are!

  12. Today you remind me of the DoubleMint twins commercial for chewing gum. I love, love ,love the two outfits. How cool would this be for traveling. You look like a million bucks in the cranberry skirt, but then what could be better to wear than a great pair of jeans. Cashmere and Cranberry sounds like a store I would be happy to shop at.

  13. Love, love this outfit, rather both outfits! You are such an inspiration with all your gorgeous fashion choices. Just wish I had the budget for many! Stay well and keep your eye on Joe! LOL!

  14. Love both looks! Funny though, when I come home from church I put on sweats. ☺️ Thank you for all the inspiration you give us every day. Wonderful ideas to try and experiment! Have a great day ~ Alex

  15. I love this outfit! I wish I was comfortable in a dress, but I just never like the way I look in them and my husband, who saw me trying one on one day, said to me, I think you look better in pants! Oh well! You look lovely in everything! It has been a winter of a lot of sickness and I’ve never had so many weather migraines and sinus headaches as I have this winter. Several ladies I work with have had many more too!

      Men are funny, Amy. Joe tells me that he prefers me in a dress. Lol!

    Love the dressy to casual styling. Looks great on you. I truly think a scarf many times gives an outfit the best look and accent over a necklace.

    Hi Tania. I love your blog. You are so inspiring and your outfits are so cute. I also like the option of supporting your businesses. I have ordered Plunder from you and I get many compliments. I was wondering if you could help me with a specific necklace. I so love the Jessica and was hoping you might have some ideas about how I could get one.
    Thank you. Juli

  18. What a pretty outfit. That color combo is perfect. And that scarf really is the perfect touch. Thanks for reminding us to take care of ourselves too. Thankful your friend will be ok. I am taking my ESPRIA daily essentials. These include something for our immune system. So far I’ve haven’t been sick.

    I learned not to brag about not having had even a cold or the flu in over a year. Word to self…it will come back to bite you! I caught a cold substitute teaching and the flu two weeks later!

      Alison, I think that scarf came from Cato Fashions back in the early fall.
