50 IS NOT OLD | FRINGE ACCESSORIES TREND | FASHION OVER 40I was swamped yesterday trying to play catch-up since I once again had been off work for a couple of days. I didn’t even look up but once or twice and most of the time it was just to eat. So, that afternoon when I went home, I brought up the blog and started uploading today’s photos. While they were in the uploading process I decided to look to see if anyone had commented on yesterday’s post. Holy cow!!! I was blown away by everyone’s comments!50 IS NOT OLD | FRINGE ACCESSORIES TREND | FASHION OVER 40 I loved reading them and I will go back and answer some of the questions that you asked but I didn’t have time last night. You gurls really are from all over the world and that is so cool. It seems like you ladies do a lot of surfing on Pinterest. Lol! When I go on there I will be there for hours and I don’t ever seem to get anything accomplished. I do a lot of pinning but not a lot of doing. Lol! It is like my video collection of exercise tapes or my cookbook collection. I don’t exercise or even cook much but I could if I wanted to. Hahaha! Thank you, ladies, for sharing a little about you and where you are from. It is fabulous that we get to have coffee/tea/coke/water/drinks together daily. Here’s to you gurls!!!50 IS NOT OLD | FRINGE ACCESSORIES TREND | FASHION OVER 40 I got tickled when I read someone’s comment about how much clothing I have. She wanted to know if I bought things and took photos and then took the clothing back. No, I don’t do that. And, while I do have a ton of clothes I also make it look like I have a bigger wardrobe than I do because I change up the way that I wear the items every time. Then there is Trunk Club. I don’t have a lot of shopping opportunities where I live so I signed up for Trunk Club which is a subscription clothing service. You tell them your likes and dislikes and the pricing range you are comfortable spending. Then they send you a huge trunk full of clothing. You try it on in your home, keep what you want and then ship the other items back. This entire outfit was in my shipment this month. I take pictures of all the items (those that fit) and I ship back the items that I really don’t think that I would get a lot of wear from. This shirt is a great example of something I took a picture of but it is really not something that I thought I would wear very much. The florals are gorgeous but they are just too dainty for my style. I do really like the colors in the top though and I like the shorter crop style that is in fashion right now. The blouse is by Vince Camuto and it actually comes in several different colors like a blue, a black, and a green. I am wearing a medium and it fits me fine. This is 100% rayon so it is machine washable and line dry.50 IS NOT OLD | FRINGE ACCESSORIES TREND | FASHION OVER 40 I am really liking these Sydney hammered gold hoop earrings with the blue fringe, they are so cute and striking. They have a 3″ drop and these are truly statement earrings! Fringe earrings are really HUGE this year! Actually, anything fringe and with tassels is very popular. I love blue and gold together so as you can guess, this necklace caught my eye. It is the Windy tassel necklace and when I saw it in the catalog I wasn’t sure that I would like it. However, because I know that most of the jewelry looks so much better in person I decided to go ahead and order it. I am certainly glad that I did because I really love it! I probably should have worn a more dainty necklace with this top but I wanted to show you gurls the necklace so badly that I went ahead and wore it anyway. Lol! BTW, someone also asked about the color of my nail polish and I have no idea what it is called. They don’t have names on most of the bottles at my nail salon, only numbers. May is my 2nd year anniversary with Plunder and I am celebrating all month long. When you make a 50.00 purchase (excluding taxes and shipping) you will receive a FREE piece of jewelry from me as a gift! Join me in the business of Plunder Design this month and I will gift you 2 pieces of jewelry. Go to plunderdesign.com/taniastephens and hit the shop tab. Pick a party with my name on it and then have fun.

50 IS NOT OLD | FRINGE ACCESSORIES TREND | FASHION OVER 40These kick flare crop pants by Halogen where also in my Truck Club shipment this month. I like the dressier look of the pants and the trendy flare at the hem. These run true to size and I am wearing my normal size 10. These are machine washable and lay flat to dry, I looked this morning. Lol! These do come in regular and petite sizes in case you are worried about them being too long. These are shorter on me than they appear. Because my camera is looking down it makes them appear longer. This is something that I kept from the trunk because I can see me getting a lot of wear from this item. In case you are interested in the Trunk Club, go here to sign up for your own shipment. 50 IS NOT OLD | FRINGE ACCESSORIES TREND | FASHION OVER 40It was very windy when I was trying to take pictures and it kept blowing my hair in my face. Lol! A storm was brewing and it has made my shoulders very tight and tense. I have an old pair of neutral wedge platform shoes from Marc Fisher. I love a neutral wedge that I can wear with almost anything in the summer months. These shoes will go with pants, dresses, shirts, or even shorts. They are very versatile so you will get you monies owrth out of a pair like this.


50 IS NOT OLD | FRINGE ACCESSORIES TREND | FASHION OVER 40Gulp, I am taking a deep breath and typing this before I change my mind. I have started a Facebook group page that I am going to go live in on my birthday, which is Monday night the 14th. I am always preaching about getting out of your comfort zone so I am trying to be an example. I will be going live at 9:00 pm EST and I will be telling you why I started R+F, about the business, and going over the products with you. I will also be having giveaways and a special deal for those that attend since it is my birthday. I will be giving away a full-size Active Hydration Serum and a Bright Eye Complex along with a few other goodies. Here is the link to join and there will also be a special giveaway for those who invite their friends. Be sure to ask them first, I don’t want anyone added to the group that doesn’t want to be there. Lol! People can get ill when that happens. I hope you will come out to support me and cheer me on. BTW, Joe will be out of town (don’t worry though, I bought myself a VERY nice present for him to give me) so it will just be us gurls. I hope to keep this around 30 minutes or less but I know that I get carried away sometimes when I am talking about R+F. Hahaha!!!

    I have been enjoying your blog very much. Normally I really like what you are wearing, but, sorry, the pants just do not do you justice. The way they are bunching up makes them look like cheaper pants and cheap material. Just my opinion though.

      Joan, it is really weird because they didn’t do that in person. I have no idea what I did when I was taking the pictures. I noticed it too and went and put them back on to see if they looked like that.

    So excited! Nordstrom ship to the UK so I was able to buy your top!

      Julie, that is pretty exciting. I hate it when you want something and they won’t ship to your area.

  3. Thanks for sharing with us everyday, I know that you have helped to inspire me to be the best version of myself.

      That makes me smile, Mary!!! I am so happy to know that you are changing and evolving into the best version of yourself.

  4. Tania, Several days ago, I posted a comment that I had been enjoying your outfit posts but just recently started reading your blog. I expressed that I thought we had a common thread and now I discover that your birthday is Monday the 14yth. LOL… my birthday is Sunday the 13th! So… Happy happy birthday! Have a fabulous birthday. Be bold and blessed.

  5. Good Morning! I’m going to say the opposite from the first comment, I love those pants on you! I think they make you look so slim! Now for the top, no! It looks too boxy and something a very elderly lady would wear…first thing I thought of … ( I worked in a nursing home ) lol……. It’s definitely not you! I love the tassel jewelery, I’ve been buying a few of the new earrings and necklaces lately to update some of my costume jewelery. Looking forward to your spring and summer inspirations….my favorite on your blog!

    Sweetie, you look so beachy today and make me think of the ocean which is where I am today (Kiawa Island, SC) Love those earrings and your capris are a great color.

  7. I like you in this outfit looks light and bright! I am not much of a tassel lover, but you my dear wear it well.
