50 IS NOT OLD | TEMPO PARIS EMBROIDERED TOP | FASHION OVER 40I can’t wait for Spring!!! It is time to spring forward next Sunday and I can hardly wait. I am ready to herald its coming by styling white this week. I couldn’t wait to showcase this gorgeous top that I received about 3 weeks ago from Purple Poppy. I have been dying to wear this top ever since I opened it but the weather has not been very cooperative. I took advantage of a nice warm spell to wear it and I loved every minute of it. 50 IS NOT OLD | TEMPO PARIS EMBROIDERED TOP | FASHION OVER 40The Purple Poppy is truly one of my favorite stores. I have been working with them for over a year and I can honestly say that I have never gotten anything that was not a high-quality garment. This one is no exception! 50 IS NOT OLD | TEMPO PARIS EMBROIDERED TOP | FASHION OVER 40The sleeves on the Tempo Paris Embroidered top are sheer with a small ruffle toward the bottom and then the hem is embroidered. The embroidered overlay is sheer but the top is lined. You do not have to add a camisole to the look. The material is 95% Viscose and 5% Elastane and I would recommend hand washing or the delicate cycle. I am wearing a size large which is my normal size.50 IS NOT OLD | TEMPO PARIS EMBROIDERED TOP | FASHION OVER 40Because the neckline is elastic you can wear this top as an off the shoulder blouse. I like the versatility of the neckline. You can wear this top casually with jeans or it would look fantastic worn off the shoulder and tucked into a long flowy white skirt with heels. This will probably make its way into my suitcase when I go to Cancun. It will look great with shorts also!50 IS NOT OLD | TEMPO PARIS EMBROIDERED TOP | FASHION OVER 40Here is a close up of the embroidery and you can see all the wonderful colors on the top. There are shades of pinks, purples, greens, blues, oranges, and red. You literally have a huge assortment of colors to choose from when it comes to picking out a pair of pants, shorts, or a skirt.50 IS NOT OLD | TEMPO PARIS EMBROIDERED TOP | FASHION OVER 40Here is a view from the rear to show you that the top is lined in the front and back. I hate it when I get an item of clothing and the design or the lining is only on the front. Don’t they know that people see us from the rear also???50 IS NOT OLD | TEMPO PARIS EMBROIDERED TOP | FASHION OVER 40Here is the top with a half tuck into the jeans and with white pumps. This is just another example of the versatility of this top. With Spring right around the corner, you will get a lot of wear from this blouseSPRING in the coming months.

  1. That is an absolutely gorgeous top!!! So beautiful and versatile!!

  2. At 62 the off the shoulder look is one I avoid. I do like the fact that you can wear this without opting to do off the shoulder. The embroidery is so nice…I see that trend is continuing this spring. You look very nice in it and it looks great with flats. So very comfortable! I too hope spring is around the corner…this has been a long winter! Best…Kathy

      I like that it can be worn in a regular fashion and that is how I wore it the entire day. There are times when the off-the-shoulder look is warranted but most of the time I just like the regular way.

      You will love the Purple Poppy. Her styles are gorgeous!

  3. Beautiful colors and style of this top but I can’t wear necklines like that due to my small shoulders. I feel like just my bony neck bones are showing. That top is so springy and it gives me hope that warm weather is on the way but not today as we are in a blizzard warning today and tomorrow..ugh.

      Sandy, if you have small shoulders then you should try wearing the off the shoulder style. It will help to make your shoulders look wider. I tell my husband that the wider my shoulders are the smaller my waist looks. Lol!

    Love, Love, Love the top and your hair! Thanks for your blog and your stylings!! Really enjoy them!!

    Is it possibly made in the USA? Would love to see more products made here.

  6. I loved this top, but I would prefer in black since I don’t use white. But Purple Poppy does not have a picture of the black one qvailable for us to check it ou. They also do not have a size chart online that I could find. Not sure it they have any plus-size clothing either… too bad ;(

  7. That top is adorable!! I love that it could be worn with so many different colour pants , shorts or skirts!! Love the white pumps! Tip….brush the top of your feet with bronzer, it really does make your feet look tanned….lol….my daughter taught me that one! Have a wonderful day! 😎

      This top is not only cute but actually affordable also. I doubt you would make the drive for my yard sale. Lol!

  9. I am not thrilled with neckline of this top and I try to wear a v-neck The embroidery is beautiful. Spring can’t make it here soon enough. Have a great day😄

    • Tania Reply

      Sandy, I am a v-neck lady also. But, this neckline is deep enough that it suited me fine.

  10. Oh Tania. You look marvelous!! Love love the top and you look awesome today! I will have to shop today and give the Purple Poppy a chance. I am looking forward to spring as well! Thanks, Carla

      Thanks, Carla. Spring is in the air and this top will be fabulous for the season!

  11. Really like this look. Top is so pretty. I’ve looked at Purple Poppy site and they do have nice clothes. This is one getting Pinned! Have great day.

      You are right, Johnna. They have some gorgeous things!!!

  12. Perfect top for Cancun. You will look great in skirt or shorts, whether at pool side or out to a fancy restaurant. My shoulders are wide so I try to avoid that kind of neckline but may have to at least try it on, it is so pretty.

      I don’t think so, Larraine, but you could call and ask them.

  13. Oh my how pretty. You look way better in bright colors. I love this top on you and may….be me too! Thanks for highlighting Purple Poppy.

  14. Hi Tania,
    I look forward to seeing what you’re styling every day and what I’ve loved most about your blog is that you recycle things in your wardrobe. I’ve begun dropping several over 40 blogs because I feel that I’m no longer reading a fashion or lifestyle blog but advertisements and they style so many items that are not that affordable or ones that my hubby would flip his wig over! I love this blouse but this is a price point that would cause him to flip his wig. Your blog has always been more “real” than the others which is why I keep coming back. As I get closer to retirement age, this becomes more important to me because I know that I’ll have to control my splurges and be much more conservative unless I want to work forever. I think this is all the more important with trendy clothing rather than handbags and shoes. I know you have a thing for those, but you always come across as a savvy shopper! Are you growing out your hair? I’ve always like it the way you’ve worn it. Hope spring comes to your area soon. March is definitely coming in like a lion!

  15. You look so pretty.🌺
    I would love to go into your closet or closets and play dress up!!!

  16. That floral top is beautiful and so versatile with all the colors! I have to say your hair looks so great!

    I so agree with the Melissa post. I have dropped reading many other bloggers as well. I truly love how you recycle previous seen items into your posts. I love how authentic you are and the fact your clothing beautifully reveals your a Christian woman with style and class. Great influence to all Christian women.
    Absolutely love your top today.
