50 IS NOT OLD | INHALE AND EXHALE | FASHION OVER 40Easy breezy, lemon squeezy. That is how I feel on Saturday’s. It is a laid back and take it easy kind of day for me. I know that some of you might have to work on Saturday but for the rest of you, how do you spend your day? The weather is so unpredictable at this time of year that it is hard to make outdoor plans. It was almost 80 degrees here one day and the very next day it was a high of 49. 😱 Emersyn has been ding-donging me to take her to a little park nearby but I am afraid to promise her that we would go because you never know what the day will hold. I sure don’t want to have to try and explain why we couldn’t go to a 4-year old. It would go something like this, but why? but why? but why? but why? Lol!50 IS NOT OLD | INHALE AND EXHALE | FASHION OVER 40Instead, I am tackling the dreaded taxes. 😱 😱 😱 I thought that statement deserved several screaming faces. Lol! It is time to go over the checklist. Calculator ✅ Credit Card Statements ✅ W-2’s and other income statements ✅ last year’s return ✅ cash receipts ✅ pencils ✅ checkbook register ✅ and my planner where I will list other giveaways, etc. ✅ I still bet that I am forgetting something but at least it is a start. Last year we ended up getting an extension even though we ended up getting money back. Who does that???? That is just letting the government use my money with no interest and that is just not smart. Let me know if any of you have any tips and tricks for being better organized, I could sure use the help.50 IS NOT OLD | INHALE AND EXHALE | FASHION OVER 40Since I am doing taxes I figured that I could use this reminder. Lol!!! Just breathe, right? I have read that when you reach a “certain” age that you shouldn’t be wearing a graphic tee-shirt. Bull Hockey! Wear whatever you please. I hate it when someone tells me that I can’t or shouldn’t do something especially when it is something that really shouldn’t matter to them. I don’t mind you telling me to buckle my seat belt, watch my fat intake, or travel at a rate of speed that is for safety reasons. All of those things have my best interest at heart. But, telling me not to wear white after or before a certain date or not to wear red lipstick or not to wear a graphic tee-shirt is just plain BULL. That is not going to hurt anyone or anything. Guess what, I am a rule follower. Joe will tell you that I refuse to do almost anything if there is a rule that says that I shouldn’t. He, on the other hand, is not quite as obedient. Today, I give you permission to be a rebel when it comes to fashion. If you like something, then wear it and let the chips fall where they may.

50 IS NOT OLD | INHALE AND EXHALE | FASHION OVER 40I don’t have on a lot of jewelry because this is a weekend look. But, I did add a few bracelets and the Judy earrings. The problem is that almost everything is sold out on the website because of the new line which will be launching in a couple of weeks. The Ezra bracelet is the charcoal bling bracelet and it has a magnetic closure and it is the only one that is available for purchase right now. But, because there is going to be a whole line change you can find some pretty sweet deals on the website. Especially, if you check under the Plundermania tab which is at 50% off right now. I am going to be giving away a FREE piece of Plunder jewelry for every of 35.00 (excluding taxes and shipping) from April 06 until April 15th!!!
50 IS NOT OLD | INHALE AND EXHALE | FASHION OVER 40I added a wine pair of skinny jeans to this look but I have worn this before (no pictures) with regular jeans. I like both looks so don’t think that you have to have any certain color or jeans to wear this. Since I added the black long sleeve shirt under the tee, you could also add a pair of black jeans to the look which would be super cute. BTW, I noticed today that Chico’s is having a huge 50% off sale and also if you remember the tee-shirt that I wore in my BOLD post, they now have it available for purchase. Go here to order your own Go Bold shirt.50 IS NOT OLD | INHALE AND EXHALE | FASHION OVER 40Ladies, in 16 days I will be heading to Cancun Mexico! I am soooo excited but when I was at the beach this past weekend I couldn’t help and notice that I was the color of sliced bread. Lol! I am placing a bulk order for some Rodan + Fields foaming sunless tanner. This is a very subtle lotion so it is great if you are new to sunless tanners or if you miss a spot. This retails for 26.00 but everyone who messages me will get it for 25.00 or 2 for 48.00. I will ship it to you free of charge and with tax, it would be a total of 26.35 each or 2 for 50.55.

  1. That’s exactly how I feel about fashion and life in general. Outside of laws and reasonable expectations of jobs and decency, do not tell me what to do! In fashion I want to express myself and I do. Come to think of it, I haven’t had any graphic tees for awhile. I’ll keep my eyes – and mind – open!

      Janet, that is what I think also. What I wear does not affect you in a negative way. It is a great form of expression!!!

  2. I totally understand your reason for not telling Emersyn in advance. I have a 3 yr old granddaughter who has “how’s comes” me to death over a similar situation. My adult kids make fun of me for being a rule follower. Can’t help it. Mom drilled it in my head … if I try to break the rule I can hear her voice in my head. I’m 53 and still don’t want my momma shaking her finger at me. Xo

      Yep, Joe makes fun of me all the time. He will say, “make a U-turn here” and I can’t do it if it says that you can’t. It doesn’t matter if it is 3:00 am in the morning and not a car in sight, I just can’t do it. Lol!

  3. I generally don’t wear tee shirts with saying as I just open my big mouth and blurt out how I feel! I agree with al the rules. At a certain age you say heck this may be the last day I get dressed….so let’s go for it!!!! Good luck with the taxes!

      I am one of those who holds everything in, Kathy. I never spurt out how I feel and that is not a good thing.

  4. Taxes.. That is on our list today! and yes filing an extension when we are getting a refund happens in our household too! Thinking of that chico t shirt…

  5. I thought only my family from southwest Missouri said Bull Hockey! Lol! My husband gets all of our taxes ready for the accountant, thank goodness. We have already gotten our refunds back. We did get a bit of bad news from him ‘tho. He said because of the new tax laws, we will not be able to claim a lot for my husbands home office next year and that will severely affect our refund. Just beware, and check with your accountant.
    We want to see what you are taking to wear in Cancun! The rest of us need help with vacation wardrobe packing. Thanks Tania!

      Carri, I wondered if anyone would wonder about my bull hockey statement. Every part of the country is different and has different sayings. On my taxes, I just list my expenses and I let the accountant figure out what we can claim. I don’t even list anything with the home office bills. I am sure that I claim waaaay less than I could.

  6. Wonder why they think older people shouldn’t wear graphic tees? We certainly have opinions and messages to share. Nobody listens much to us anymore, so maybe we need a forum even more than younger people. I mean we would keep it tasteful. There should be no obscenities or druggie messages on our shirts, but I see possibilities. Slogans like: Next Stop: Cemetery, Make Strudel Not War, Guns Are for Sissies, Call Your Mother, and Naps Rock. You look lovely in your casual duds and purple is your friend!

      Oh my goodness, Carole. I love your slogans. I am sitting here laughing my butt off. Lol!!!

  7. I am going to my daughter’s bridal shower today. After studying your outfits,I felt confident to buy a new outfit based on some of your fashion tips!

  8. I need to look as nice as you do on a Saturday morning…LOL Cancun sounds so inviting right now as our thermometer says 8 degrees!!!! Taxes are done…we get everything ready and then have meeting with account to go through things as there are just too many tax laws for us farmers and being a corporation ect. ect. that there is just now way that we can keep up on all the rules and regulations so having to set up an appt. with him makes us get them out of the way. He does not like to do extensions as he thinks it’s a red flag to getting audited; just his opinion. It will be nice to have them out of the way before your vacation.

  9. Love the outfit. You look so put-together, I try to look nice even when staying home but I’m more successful in the summer. Winter…I just want to be warm in fleece clothing. (Sounds like wolf in sheep’s clothing! 🙂 It’s cold here in Ohio!

  10. Hi. Cute outfit! Love the tee. You make casual look so “put together”. I strive to do that too but doesn’t always work. Good luck with taxes. I can’t imagine doing them myself.

    • Tania Reply

      Johnna, I just get all of my info together and then I hand it over to an accountant. He looks over it and then asks me for the stuff that I forget.

  11. How can I message to order the sunless tanner? I forgot your email address. Thanks

  12. I enjoy reading graphic tees. Your lavender reminder to take it easy is a winner.

      Amen sister! I love graphic tees so thank you for speaking up for us still wearing them!! Love that cclor!

    Ugghhh, I am still working on the taxes too! My house looks like a tornado hit, laundry to do, dishes in sink, bed has to be remade, hmmmm, I think I will take a nap! Good luck with your taxes!

  14. Love the Tshirt and what it reads. Graphic tees can be fun. Totally agree, wear what you want.

  15. Hello Tania!!
    I would like to order your R&F tanning by lotion!! I am NOT experienced in using this type of product, but based on what you’ve said , I’m willing to try this!

    Thank you!!! 💖

    Tania please let me know how to msg you..want to buy plunder and the tanner

  17. Bull hockey was a saying we used in NW Arkansas. My mom used to say Bull corn! Not sure where she got that!

  18. Cute, cute, cute!

    BTW, the “Work Hard & Be Nice” shirt………I have a painted sign in my classroom with that statement. Those are the only rules in my classroom. I tell my students, do those 2 things and you will go far in life.
