50 IS NOT OLD | A MAXI DRESS AND A LONG VEST | FASHION OVER 40I have been dying to tell everyone about my Monday evening. A couple of months ago I got a message from one of my blog readers who said they were starting a blog and wanted to talk. I love talking about blogging so we jumped on the phone and talked for over an hour. We were so much alike and had a ton of things in common. It actually got to be quite comical when we would say, “me too.” We did that like 5 or 6 times. Lol!!! Anyway, before we got off the call we started talking about Rodan + Fields and she soon joined me in the business.50 IS NOT OLD | A MAXI DRESS AND A LONG VEST | FASHION OVER 40 Since then we talk constantly, like every couple of days and have become great friends. Can you believe what the internet is capable of? We talked a lot about meeting and then an opportunity presented itself on Monday night. We had a small training session and she decided to come and participate and meet everyone. She, Snickers, and Greg drove the 4 1/2 hours to Grundy and I am so glad they did!!! First off, she is beautiful and just as sweet in person as she was on the phone and Greg is just as crazy in person as he is on the phone. lol! But, that Snickers is such a sweetheart in person that her sweet nature doesn’t come across on the internet. I wanted to pry their hands off of her tiny little body and keep her but they were stronger than I was. Lol! I am already making plans to go and visit with her before long and you should too. AFTER you finish reading all of my post then you should go on over and check out Susanne at Thompson Hill Blog. Be sure to tell her that I sent you and that you think I would be a very good momma for Snickers. Hahaha!50 IS NOT OLD | A MAXI DRESS AND A LONG VEST | FASHION OVER 4050 IS NOT OLD | A MAXI DRESS AND A LONG VEST | FASHION OVER 4050 IS NOT OLD | A MAXI DRESS AND A LONG VEST | FASHION OVER 40 My blue maxi dress is one that I bought when I went to Juneau Alaska last year to visit my daughter. It is by a brand called MTS and I had never heard of it before and I have never seen it since. I just loved the color and I even liked the fact that it was a solid color. I love prints but there are times when a solid color can be more striking and versatile. This dress has the weird neckline detail but I would really have preferred it to have been plain.

50 IS NOT OLD | A MAXI DRESS AND A LONG VEST | FASHION OVER 40This Yvonne necklace is extremely lightweight. This is a gold hoop with white a turquoise beads that are strung on a peach and white braided cord and it is approximately 36″ long. I liked how the gold in the necklace “popped” against the darker blue of the maxi dress. I chose a multi-strand summery bracelet called the Kensie.  I love all the pastel leather bands and the stones on them. This is a magnetic bracelet so you don’t have to worry about getting it fastened. Am I the only one who has trouble getting bracelets latched???50 IS NOT OLD | A MAXI DRESS AND A LONG VEST | FASHION OVER 40 I love this long sweater vest by LuLaRoe. I have had it for a couple of years and I just love the soft blue color. I doubt that it is available but you could always ask a LuLaRoe dealer if you know one. I like a vest because it confuses the eye as to where the outline of my body should be. My hope is that they think that I am thinner than I am. Lol! I stayed in a blue family going more toward monochromatic instead of choosing a vest that had a patterned print. I told you that I was liking solids for a change. I tried to find some cute long vests to link to for you but with it being summer, I just couldn’t find anything that I really liked. I guess you might have to go to the store and look. 🙁50 IS NOT OLD | A MAXI DRESS AND A LONG VEST | FASHION OVER 40First, a reminder to go and check out Susanne and then a thank you to all of you who watched my Retirement event last night. It was a blast and I had a lot of fun. I can’t wait for all of you to start using your products and send me messages about your glowing skin. I would love to share my products with you and get you on your way to the best skin that you can have. Take the solutions tool to see what the doctors recommend for you.

  1. Gosh. Good morning. Here I am in the wide awake club in the UK. 6.30 AM AND RETIRED. There should be only one of that time in my day now and it isn’t in the morning. But I love waking up to your post. As yet I haven’t seen you wear anything I dislike you are one of those people who seems to be able to wear anything. Have a lovely day. Jill x

  2. Aww. Thank you, Tania, for the sweet comments.
    I’m sure we will have some great times ahead!
    Greg tells everyone, he couldn’t have picked a sweeter dog and he is so right.

    I’m up a little early this morning. My husband is having nose surgery at 9:00. Hope this helps his breathing issues. My niece is a R+F rep in the Philadelphia area. Blue is a good color on you when you want to go pastel.

  4. The dress is very becoming and suits your style BUT what stands out is your complexion and it is beautiful and glowing. You are a wonderful representative of Rodan and Fields. I am taking advantage of your specials from your event. I linked to Suzanne’s Blog from yours some time back. Enjoy your retirement! I know I am enjoying mine each day.

  5. Love this look. Especially since dress has pockets. And vest is beautiful. This gets pinned! I’ve been reading Thompson Hill blog from time to time. She has good recipes.

  6. Holy Moly! Look at YOU all dressed in blue! Blue IS your color! Have a wonderful weekend, Miss Tania! 💋

  7. What a ball to get to meet up in person!! Now that you’re retired, you ought to come out to LA in October for the Forever Fierce conference!! It’d be so great to meet you!!

    Very beautiful color for you! Really accentuates your eyes! Where’s a picture of Snickers?

      Thanks, Charlcy! I think they were afraid for me to get my hands on Snickers long enough to take a picture. Lol!
