50 IS NOT OLD | A STRIPED T-SHIRT DRESS IS CLASSIC AND COMFORTABLE | FASHION OVER 40Hi, ya’ll from Tennessee! I made it to my mom’s and I brought me sore throat with me. Ugh! I am amazed at how medicine works. I took 2 pills Wednesday and I felt better, not great but better, on Thursday. It just blows my mind how 2 pills can make that big a difference. I want to thank everyone who is in the medical profession. You all make such a big difference in people’s lives. 
50 IS NOT OLD | A STRIPED T-SHIRT DRESS IS CLASSIC AND COMFORTABLE | FASHION OVER 40I made it to the boy’s ballgames and wouldn’t you know, they both played at the same time but at different fields. I watched Jett’s t-ball game first and I got to see him at bat twice and then I walked over to the other fields and watched Huttson’t team. They both won their games so we went to the Dairy Queen to celebrate. I have been craving ice cream ever since my throat has been so sore. A banana split was my choice for supper.
50 IS NOT OLD | A STRIPED T-SHIRT DRESS IS CLASSIC AND COMFORTABLE | FASHION OVER 40I had to cancel my hair appointment on Wednesday since I didn’t want to make my hairdresser sick plus, I felt like crap. So, thankfully, my DIL is a hairdresser and she has agreed to give me a quick trim. I will have to wait to get my color touched up so if I start styling hats you will know why. Lol! I bought this navy and white Ralph Lauren Polo dress the other day at TJ Maxx. I had to make the 2 hour trip to the female doctor and I took a little time to do a little shopping. I figured Joe would like this dress and I was right. It is a simple t-shirt dress or polo dress. It is perfect for running around town but it still looks nice enough to go out to eat lunch with the girls.

50 IS NOT OLD | A STRIPED T-SHIRT DRESS IS CLASSIC AND COMFORTABLE | FASHION OVER 40I added some color to the outfit with my earrings and bracelet. I didn’t bother with a necklace since I thought the other two items were enough. The earrings are gold with a bright pink/coral fringe drop. This was part of this months Plunder Posse set. The Fiona bracelet has the matching tassels even though I have had the bracelet for at least 5 or 6 months. I love how Plunder jewelry will mix and match. 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 | A STRIPED T-SHIRT DRESS IS CLASSIC AND COMFORTABLE | FASHION OVER 40I  told you gurls that I loved this neoprene beach tote and that it could be versatile. I carry this a lot as just a tote for extra items that I am taking to work with me. When I have a lot of packages to mail out I will put them all in this tote. Today, I liked how the gingham pattern and the striped pattern looked together. They are in the same color family so they looked cute together. The tote was a c/o Purple Poppy and you just wait until you see the latest item she has sent me. Notice my Apple watch? Joe has said that I will only wear it for two weeks but I can tell you that he is wrong. I am actually loving the watch and I am already starting to look at different straps. Do any of you have straps for your apple watch that you like?50 IS NOT OLD | A STRIPED T-SHIRT DRESS IS CLASSIC AND COMFORTABLE | FASHION OVER 40 Since I am running around town with this outfit, I am wearing flats to make it easier. I like these navy ballet flats by Isacc Mizrahi because they are comfortable I also like that they just slip on and off. I am not as coordinated as I used to be and sometimes I feel like a contortionist trying to put on my shoes. Why they have to put the latch in the hardest to reach areas is beyond me.

50 IS NOT OLD | A STRIPED T-SHIRT DRESS IS CLASSIC AND COMFORTABLE | FASHION OVER 40I hope you are enjoying your Friday and that you have some wonderful plans for the weekend. I have a full day planned and it all includes two monkey boys and one little sweet girl.50 IS NOT OLD | A STRIPED T-SHIRT DRESS IS CLASSIC AND COMFORTABLE | FASHION OVER 40 50 IS NOT OLD | A STRIPED T-SHIRT DRESS IS CLASSIC AND COMFORTABLE | FASHION OVER 40

  8. I love simple casual dresses…I just bought one from Dressbarn and can’t wait to wear it. After seeing your cute hair again this morning, I wish I would have waited for a “hair tutorial” as I just had my roots colored and hair cut and will need to let it grow again to style like yours! You can never go wrong with DQ ice cream!

      My hair is really long right now and long overdue a touch-up and cut.

  9. So many of my outfits are inspired by you.
    I always get compliments as well. You look comfy in this dress not frumpy.
    I’m looking for some dresses to just throw on and go for the summer.
    Enjoy your long weekend.

    Love the dress! Love the dress! And the earrings and other accessories go great with the dress. Very clean looking, if that makes sense. I think I mean you look polished! Okay, that sounds silly, but you do look all put together and ready for Summer!

    All is being sent to you in a good way! 🙂
